If you are willing to spend, I think the N79 is the best multimedia handset available with all features. I'm using it since 10 months and no problems with it yet. Though the Speaker Volume seems low compared to 5800. Spec-wise N79 beats any other phone available in the market at its price.

I've had N79 since July but whenever I play radio it's breaking, it gives me maybe 30secs of silence every after a minute or so.
If you have purchased this mobile then don't get worried, and my advice for the new people who are going to buy this mobile is that, don't go for this mobile anymore because nokia have stopped producing both n79 and n85.

TMT, 22 Dec 2009hello guys, i'm using nokia N79 for 5 months now. i think is really worth it to buy this phone... moreVery balanced and concisely written review.. I agree with all the points.. I have this phone for about more than a year now.. N79 is cool..
hello guys, i'm using nokia N79 for 5 months now. i think is really worth it to buy this phone beacuse its all in one device. Here's my short review. Lets start with pros.
1.GsmArena says that the camera is not the best for 5 megapixel. yep i have to agree with that.BUT, after i updated the new firmware update from version 10,20 and the latest i updated since august is version 30.019. and the camera quality is completely improved. and the cam quality is same as N82 after update version 30.019. But the flash are led so n82 won for night photo. Anyway, the pictures is really great! it replaces my digicam. the camera quality is soooooooooooo beautiful and awsome!
2.The music is really good, it doesnt distort even on max volume!After you update the version 30.019the music quality is completely improved and the headphone prvided is nice and good sound output, not like cheapo Xpress Music headphone(nokia 5130 everyone?)
3.The auto rotate is sooo fast and its faster than my other phone nokia 5800 have a nice theme effect. if you buy N79 you get what i mean.
4.Its reasonable price, in my country Malaysia i bought this phone cost RM 1499(in nokia original store,but i got a discount RM 1299 though)But hell yeah its quite resonable with all in one price.
5.Good battery life, in heavy use it stands for 2.5 days, for moderate used 6 days. Its really good batterylife and if you didnt used 3g, turn it to dual mode in network setting because dual mode caused batery to finish fast.
6. Gps has a really good signal. but i don't use it much so i wont talk any further about gps.
7.Wifi signal is holy strong! almost same as my laptop. i live in 5th floor and i got almost 5 or 6 wifi connection using N79.
8.Video quality is awsome, is sooo much better than nokia 5800 because nokia n79 video quality is celar and not gloomy like 5800. And you can used video light for night recording.
9.Navi wheel is tha best because of a flat D-pad. you can scroll the menu,music,photo etc alot faster. Nokia N78,81,85 their navi wheel sucks
10.Fm transmitter has a very good signal. Much much better than N78.
1. sometimes it hangs for no reason.example when i want to scroll a photo it hangs sometimes, but not always though. Update firmware, the hang problem is still present but rarely hapened.
2.Auto rotate sometime doesnt respond! example when i rotete the phone and the standby screen didn't rotate. Or rotate like 10 seconds later Same thing happend vise versa.
3.N gage to open the N gage application takes ages to open, it slow and you only got a trial version not a full version. want full version you have to buy it!!
4. The flash at night is bright but not as bright as N86 flash and the worst part is when you took photo at night if you wanna to take photo at a bit far from the object there's a refelcton on the top left part of the image.You know why? Because of the metal gap between lens and flash.
5.The speaker loudness is a bit low for stereo speakers. N73 is way louder(for example max music volume in n79 just 60% volume of n73). The bass is not that great either. it focused at vocal and treble more than bass.
Conclusion: For the pros and cons, i think i rate it
4.5/5 because of the amazing all in one set device. I highly reccomended everyone to buy this majestic phone to everybody. so thanks for reading my review and see ya. you ask quaestion. i have a blog about n79 sample pics. anyway thanks for reading my review.
