Whats alarming is the rumour that Nokia has stopped production of this phone, is this trueee? Why is it so? Or is it false? What r they disadvantages of buying a phone who's production has been stopped?
Ok about all these people complain about the keypad are stupid
Its not really big of a deal unless you text a lot or send a lot of messages.
Its a very good multimedia phone... the video player is good, volume can go REALLY loud on speakers, I had it for about 4 months and its great
Since many people report about having problems with Nokia N78 speakers I have to say my word. In most cases the speaker is not damaged, but it just doesn't make contact with the keyboard module, so the module should e disassembled and fixed.
Personally I had a problem with my left-bottom speaker, in my case the speaker was damaged. I fixed the problem by myself. It was really easy. I found a new speaker for about 4 $ in Bulgaria and I replaced it myself. I had to disintegrate the keyboard module and since the adhesives were not strong enough after that I had to use some instant glue to make sure the module is quite strong again. Everything worked out pretty well and my N78 has 2 speakers again. No soldering is required, but it's necessary to make sure the speaker is firmly attached and has good contacts with the keyboard module. Be extremely careful when disassembling the keyboard module. Also make sure to test everything before gluing the phone. If the sound You hear from the speaker seems strange and too low on max volume, put some electric insulating band on top of the speaker, You'll be surprised how perfectly it works then.
N78 seems to be tougher than it looks! It is a relatively strong phone. Many people coplain about the loose back cover - not a problem, easily fixed with some insulating tape.
I find the keyboard comfortable enough, since I type a lot on Fring and it is really not tiring my fingers, so it is OK.
I'm using N78 10 months now and I use all the great features, especially the GPS, Wi-Fi, MP3, divX (Coreplayer), Camera is great for a phone, sound is great, internet is fast, the phone is also a great picture browser. Only problem for me is battery time, but it cannot be better for the moment, so it's not an issue. On hard use the phone lasts about 1 day for me, but it is really really used all the time and multitasking. If I spare it, it can last even a week, so everything's OK! Best phone for this money!
how much do you reckon this would go for, im thinking it's probably more expensive than the nokia e51 because its camera and media features are much better, but could you get this phone under 400$?
Amazing phone works great and everything.
ONLY 1 CON. The Keypad is HORRIBLE. Cant text properly badly designed.
Well, i recently buyed this cel, and it's the best one i've had... it's my first symbian and i can't think of having a different one of this class...
camera is like my 5610, but with many more options and superior quality... and personalization its at glass... many programs, many games... many themes... and the fm transmitter is a good adittion for those who use it for driving... keypad is not as so uncomfortable as the gsmarena review says...
the bad thing it's that the construction materials are kinda cheap looking, but that's not a big deal...
Zihad, 02 Apr 2009I use rotate me software to auto rotate my n78.it works perfect to my 78from where did u get rotateme software coz i wanna download
Does anyone know how to get cracked ngage games working? I'm gettin' all kinds of errors, and the KERN.EXEC 3 is the most frequent. Perhapse I'm not the only one experiencing this problem...
i am considering between the n78 and e71, each has its pros and cons, what is a little bit of drawback to the n78?
faisal, 06 Apr 2009hi guys.. please dont buy this phone. in pk i bought this phone for 22000 rupees just three da... moreFaisal, get ur cell checked. i bouht it too. mine is perfectly allright. i only had prob usin keypad but after a use of few days, i can type in speed. the thing i didnt like is the color or nevi wheel which is peeling off rapidly. over all, its a Good mobile.
My phone placed the latest firmware as 12.046. Strange when i know the latest is 20. Anyway, i still went on to upgrade to version 12 and noticed the fm transmitter signal went very low. Has anyone experienced this? Whats the remedy?
great phone, i pick this up upon E51 and even N81, camera is better, there is a GPS receiver, FM transmitter, lighter, newer software, maybe moetly the problem caused by software (It's new, anyway), but i think it's very easy to fix, coz the hardware is superb..
Disassembling N78 was relatively easy. Anyway it is hard to fix the bottom speaker problem by myself, cause the only way to reach it is to disintegrate the UI Module (the keypad and the bottom speaker are in one block of adhesives, cables, etc.) The UI module can be found for 75 $, and a speaker is only about 5 $ on ebay. Still I'm ready to disintegrate the keypad module and put a new speaker, I think they are all the same in n78, n82, etc. so it is easy to find one. I really hope the keypad module will still be working in the end:))
hi guys.. please dont buy this phone. in pk i bought this phone for 22000 rupees just three days ago and the moment i opened the box it was mere disappointment. it keeps on restarting and i m unable to play videoclips on it even the ones i recorded on its own camera. as far as features are concerned, its a great phone in such a price range. great screen great maps and gps, sound and all but the sorftware and the appearance is the major NO.
