this is indeed a good phone . wifi feature is really best amontg its class, picture quality good but not as expected when zoomed but video quality is really awesome. Haze theme is good . with glossy finish it looks really cool, i updated its firmware to 30.00 and having no problem though i am yet to find a difference with previous version since i have bought just 2 months before. sound is really good but change its earpiece provided with nokia.
its also unique
since its processor is exaclly same as e71 and has quickoffice application too
5 mp camera and video recording at 30 fps not all the phone having .
eradio , fm transmitter, fota capability, n gage application
its music quality is really good and compete with music edition phone
breathing feature , navi wheel feature, faster processor really like e71 and also installed with many applications
but plz dont compare with more costly phone or either pay for them since its serving the application of smart phone and multimedia phone.
Raliegh, 04 Dec 2009I was able to have the privilege of having n82, e63 and n79 all at the same time and use them ... morethanx for your valuable comment.
wats the name of the software that allows u to use your flsh as a torch??
I was able to have the privilege of having n82, e63 and n79 all at the same time and use them and choose one at the end..
E63-classy,professional,but lacks good camera or video. (when i went for an outing and forgot my digital camera, im doomed!!)
n82-good build,xenon is so unique & helpful(at dark places), fast system esp. games, but keypads are so small and build is dull and bulky
n79-goes in the middle of n82 and e63. it has the classy, very very nice looks, very clear camera too(but not at night) and smooth video too. If the n82 rocks on camera shots in dark places, the n79 rocks video shots in dark places because of its dual led flash.
The lock/unlock slide is so helpful. And it's cool to do too. I wouldn't trade it for a music button, n-series button, or any button!! haha.
The breathing is wickedly cool. The naviwheel emits light every other second-like it's breathing.
The transition fade effects.... wheeww..
And my latest discovery.. n79 is really a swiss army knife. I installed an application that enables my dual-led flash to be a flash light!! SO bright in dark places.. it's blinding!!! very very helpful.
Only drawback to n79 is it's kinda slow compared to n82 and e63. internal memory is also not that big.
But it's fine for me since I have the best of both worlds with this phone... Good looks+features..
N79 All the way!!!
See, i was having confusion for which one to buy e63 or E71 or n79...
n79 i buyed
n m very happy.
Its symbian(means tons of apps n games)
its a big screen
its 2 loud speakers
its navi wheel
its black(black version is best in the three colour options)
and i updated it FOTA(firmware of the air)
FOTA: for indian users who don't generally understand this term. = it means that you update your firmware of mobile using GPRS connectivity offered on mobile by your service provider(vodafone,idea,etc.)
There's an application names SW Checker in the phone(pre-installed) which lets you update FOTA
Using NSU(nokia software updater), n79 can't be updated to the new version. So you have to update using FOTA
NSU: nokia software updater which allows you to download new firmware using PC and then update your firmware by joining your pc and phone by a cable.

N85 camera is way better thn N79 .. iv been using N85 for a year now..N85 camera is great ! even if you zoom it to the fullest,the picture is clear..my sister is using N79 so does my friend..they dislike the camera as compared to N85..flash is wonderful ! overall,N85..GREAT ! well compared to N79,N85 is better..N79 is a good phone, but the quality of the camera isint that good compared to N85..both handphones,speaker,heasets,equalizers are great.. ;)
i think n82 is better than n79...what n79 offer to us? what a different between n79 n n82? juz 369mhz processor.??not enough to perform good multi tasking.
I'm using n79 phone about 1 year. it is a good phonethan which used earlier.
i think that this phone is the bst among all ..its camera is awesome ..if anyone wil exchange it with n97 then also i wil nt give my n79.
i reckon im am a phone freak i own a nokia n73 and it only last 5 hours i charge it at least 3 times a day I AM A PHONE FREAK

I think you dont know how many leaps Indians have made in IT and software. Make your facts clear before making any comments. Or are you drunk or something!

When I say I´m a mobile freak, I simply mean that I change my mobile phone very often (few months).
And my N79 lasts really 4-6 days with normal usage (GSM, everyday 15 minutes calls, 15 minutes music, 30 minutes WLAN, 5 pics).
i just can't get it how some people say that they are fone freaks and then they say that their fone's battery keeps on going for 4 to 6 days! i use an n78 which is more or less the same fone, and more important it has the same battery... mine goes for 1 to 2 days! and i don't consider myself a fone freak... those have max 1/2 to 1 day of battery usage! so please, don't lie to people that want to buy a fone! if you use a smartfone at it's potential then u have max 2 days of battery...

I´m using the N79 now for 1 year. That´s a long time for a mobile freak like me.
But I simply can´t find a better device. N79 offers
- long battery time (4-6 days)
- great reception
- great call quality
- great loudspeaker (not as thin as N97, E72 and so on)
- no scratches on the phone so long
- Camera is good (better than N85)
And you can change the backcover. :)
I really love my N79 and I´m very satisfied with it!!!
