nice phone....its really a good mobile 2 use...bt the only case is in keypad
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2011Keypad is the most WTF part and WTH price for all me. Each replacement keypad costs 15 dollars... morethanks for taking the time to reply to my queries. Mic works when i push the bottom part of the keypad. Will have to use headset as substitute mic since 15usd will buy me an 8gb microsd, lol.
What a fail design!
Its very good phone so far. Keypad gives some problems. some keys take unresponsive. but when each restart can resolve all problems for a while. So i can guess its a problem of keypad, can be from firmware. But I'm using the latest 30.014. Camera is fine. But flash light can't fill the light at night. Thus night time photos get dots. In brief its nice phone. I love its music. same quality of my 5800 with earphones. Very easy to handle than my 5800. If some one can make a better keypad for it, it can be the best. GPS works fine. FM transmitter not very powerful. You need to put a wire from your car antenna to driver's seat to get stereo quality sounds.

Each replacement keypad costs 15 dollars on ebay. Some I bought, the button not really function. MIC, I don't know why is looseness of it. But when you replace a new keypad on it, always use back the ORIGINAL mic. But you have to split your keypad and the sticked ic board is VERY HARD to separate, and VERY VERY careful of the electronic thing don't split together with it. Usually you will split it using a knife or a ruler.

On left speaker, it built with the keypad, you can replace the speaker as your on risk by remove the keypad and force to split the STICKED ic board. I did, and some button malfunction. Risky~~~ Buy a new keypad costs me USD~15 and have BAD MIC quality. Low speaker volume. All keypad you bought on ebay costs about usd ~15 doesn't have navi function. Only original. And is all BAD MIC QUALITY.

I will tell you all the problem that I found on N78.
- Extremely loud speaker with only about 1mm x 4mm exhaust hole which will reduce the loudness and also chance of spoil the speaker by wave vibrating. NOKIA reduced overall speaker volume in firmware xx.xxx. Solve it just remove the WEB-like thing around the speaker on casing.
- Focus gear spoiled, no longer focus, every picture will only clear in far part. Near part awful blur.
- Left SPEAKER, MIC are all built together in KEYPAD. Original keypad is good, but when something spoiled and you have to replace a new keypad, something will happen, you will see.
- Not really necessary unless you are going to show off this feature in your phone. Many people who never use N78 before think it's CANCEL KEY.
- Try cook your firmware by delete some unwanted application and processes which can extremely boost up your phone. MPXCOLLECTIONSERVER*
I rather replace...

BENY, 30 Jul 2011It doesnot work on FM transmit and WLNu have the wrong info the fm transmitter works great....its one of the best features this phone has.
awesome phone, i've had it for almost 3 yrs now and it has never failed my expectations. Its got the best battery, its battery still goes up to 4 days with moderate usage. The keypad might seem difficult in the beginning but its really great once you get used to it (it will take a day or 2)
