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.
yuva, 05 Apr 2009i did the Same comparison b4 3 months(n78 & E51) in fact there is no reason to reject E51 at t... morethx so much for ur feed back i will take it in my consideration but i was wondering if the 7 reasons to reject aren't a major problems ? and if the software is slow and always mingle?
rob, 05 Apr 2009hey guys i want to buy a cell phone and am thinking abt N78 or E51 , what i like abt the N78 ... morei did the Same comparison b4 3 months(n78 & E51) in fact there is no reason to reject E51 at the same time some reasons to reject and select N78
But at last i got my N78 baby......... and used for past 2 months and now i am very much satisfied.
Reason to reject
1) worst key pad design
2) worst back battery cover
3) handset will get finger print / dust due to its shine
4) i think signal pickup is little bit weak due to antenna fixed in top cover (but not much)
5) speaker phone is not good( opponent couldn't hear properly
6) some time device will get reset (rarely when using wifi , GPS....etc)
7) touch navigation is not good
Reason to select
1)Cheep phone with wifi , GPS , 2.4 inch screen
2) very good Wifi device
3) GPS works fine (not on E51)
4) 2.4" inch screen (where as E51 has 2")
5) good sound quality
6) camera quality is good (for me its good becoz never compare this with my digital camera)
8) good battery life
9) Dual speaker
10) N-gage games hackable
11) good speed (compare to my old N70)
12) 296 MHZ processor 96 mb RAM
