n79 has a VIDEO LIGHT so you can record at Night while n82 doesnt have VIDEO LIGHT, it only have Xenon flash for Night Shots. So I prefer n79 for video and image capture
It’s time to let you all know what I’ve come to know about my phone till now. Well, I would like to say first of all, that at Rs.14,650 I hadn’t expected all these features ever in a phone. So let me start off:
In the box I got Black, Plum and Steel Grey color back covers, N79 set, Travel Charger, Leather Cover, 3.5mm Stereo Headset and a 4GB Micro SD card. And also as this model comes under Nokia N-Theatre in India, so I got a separate 4GB N-Theatre Micro SD card with 5 preloaded movies (Om Shanti Om [Hindi], Jab We Met [Hindi], Jerry Maguire, A Few Good Men and Devil’s Own). The Nokia Micro SD card along with 10 preloaded songs and the phone memory has 15 preloaded N-Gage titles.
The UI is very good. Though after using Nokia 5800 XpressMusic for some time I feel that some options are way too inside other folders rather than just being out in the menu to be easily found and accessed. The GPS is awesome. GPS locking is also faster compared to Nokia 5800 XpressMusic which I had been using lately. It also has a preinstalled QuickOffice version 188.8.131.52 along with Adobe PDF viewer. It also has a function called Mobiola Screen Capture through which you can connect your phone to a PC or Laptop and give your presentation through the phone directly.
It also features a Message Reader like the E-series phones. And also a Zip-manager. It has an Oxford Dictionary preinstalled with 2,40,000 words and more can be uploaded. It has a Wavesecure mobile security which I haven’t installed yet. The cam quality is awesome both inside and outside, and by awesome I mean compared to 5800XM. The cam also features geotagging which is quicker than 5800 but I didn’t get the GeoTagged info in the photo even after clicking after the satellite had locked in. Later I got it when seeing the photos on Nokia Photos application on my PC.
The Navi-Wheel is a brilliant addition and gives you a feel of using Apple I-Pod Shuffle. Lovely piece of hardware. Couldn’t use the Wi-Fi till now, or the Net, so can’t comment but should be good to use them.
One problem I’m facing is that the internal memory is very low, especially after they installed the N-Gage games, it was reduced drastically and I can’t find a way to send those N-Gage games to the memory card. I have just 16.3MB of phone memory left to work with and that is a problem. Feeling like deleting all N-Gage games.
The music quality is comparable to 5800 cause of the dual stereo speakers. The FM-Transmitter function is also a good thing and works well within a range of 10 feet.
The keypad is ok to work with, just a mm or 2 smaller for my fingers, but is workable. The battery lasts about a day or day and a half with my average usage. I don’t think that I could want anything else in a phone, but if I’ve missed on some thing about the phone which you would like to know, do write back and let me know.
ive used n82 for 1 year and i thought it would be better to upgrade to n79, i used n79 for a week and its a dissapointment!!! SLOW SLOW SLOW!!! camera doesnt even compare even in bright lights, pictures w/ n79 are noisy, blurred compared to n82.i was using 8gb for my n82 and it was really fast, my n79 only has 4gb and when it got full, it started to hang, get so slow.
one more thing, keypads are very stiff and hard to press, if you are a fast texter, this is not the phone for you, it will slow you down
think twice before buying n79,
