1st thing, this phone is very very slow!!!!! it takes ages to zoom a picture and worst, viewing the picture is a pain in the @$$!!!!, it takes more then 10 sec for the picture to clear up and wen zooming the picture, its takes time also to clear up, very ver dissapointing,
2nd, keypads are very hard to press, you cant type as fast as you want, when you press haed, you tend to press the wrong button, very very hard to press and very very stiff!!! if you are a fast texter, not recommended,
3rd is the worst thing!!! camera is a crap!!! its the worste 5 mp camera in the market, some 3 mp camera are even better, pictures are blurred, very very noisy, colors are messed up, you cant even tkae pictures of moving objects, pics will be blurred, setting doent even have adjustments for exposure value, sharpness, contrast etc like w/ n95 8gb and n82, its a crap, you will regret buying this phone, im selling mine now.
alternative phone to chnage to n82, still the best 5 mp cam and speed is amazing
n95 8gb phone also super fast and great pictures as well
n97 if you can afford it
n86 some say its a nice phone, you might wanna try it
Pls, can anyone tell me if I should Update the Firmwire of my N79. I'm afraid to do it cause some people told me that if i update it, yhe phone can crash . Pls some one should advise me on updating my software. Havent updated it since the time i baught it. That is Last Year. Pls Reply. Thanks
its an awesome pone, just gets hanged in b/w sumtimes n is a bit slow. but its worth it
seven, 26 Aug 2008Atleast there could be xenon.There should have been a Xenon flash. However in a bid to keep the phone Kareena slim, Xenon is discouraged, as its electrostatic capacitor eats up enormous space. Hence the LED flash. However recently, the high current LED flash, needing slim-thin supercapacitor is in vogue and a good answer to the Xenon flash. It is not clear whether in N79 regular low current 'lantern' LED flash is there or the recent high current LEDs that may soon replace the Xenons.
Santosh, 03 Aug 2009Hi frnds Im plannig to take N79, Please tell me something about the performance and youre... moreTo be frank, I think N79 is pretty good. It is quite user friendly, has excellent video quality and the camera is good. However, just for 40 Euros more, you can have N85. Only problem of N85 is that it does not have perfect legibility in sunlight, which I think, N79 is a clear winner. So, in short, either N79 or N85. Let me know your decision. firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been using a Nokia N82 for a long time, infact im using two of these. I want to get the FM transmitter in my phone , is there some way that is possible.Please help me out, iv got a question, the transmitter basically plays the music playing in my phone on the car FM stereo , and similarly can i receive calls via the stereo ?
Thanx for reading and more thanx for answering.
I just got the N79, *N79-1 /RM-348* after using a 6230i for 3years. things are interesting for me right now...it took me 2days of updates to completely convert from the old phone to the new one... the phone switch via bluetooth is very interesting feature. however after i did a phone back & restore fom the old to the new phone i am set.A few tings that i was looking for the be the same after i swapped phones was my groups and my predictive text settings.however that was not the case.also my saved txt msgs i had to copy over myself...however what is most interesting for me so far.is how many things the phone does that even reading up about it didn't prepare me for.right now i have the youtube and gmail app installed.i have updated the maps and it works fine..i am running 30.019.53.1software revision and so far the most problems i encounter is connecting the wifi b4 using a web aware app. if i dont do that the program hangs.and i guess i will have 2 get used to a black screen for the power saver. So far i am happy and impressed with the handset and i will come back in a month and let you guys know how it works.. i've synced the phone with my media library and most definitely will b using it as my music player.
I'm being using this obile for 6 months now.
I did't find any major problem till now.
Even u can update your mobile software through the wireless internet without cnnecting it to a computer.
No major problem till now.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2009hey dude can u send me the preinstalled applications of ur phone as nokia care people have del... moreTry to update the software with the latest. It will automatically install all the things which were there when u buy the phone.
I purchased n79 just one day ago..
For those who have posted negative review for this set i wana point that its camera is perfectly ok...
no negative about it..you can xpect digi cam functions out of mobile camera.it click photos perfectly upto xpectation in day.its photos are ok if u are not onli dependent on flash lyt...(i have not tested photos in dark lyt). but photos in evening in room widout and wid lyt were also upto mark..
SO NO REGRET ABOUT CAMERA
SECONDLY ABOUT SPEED
phone i purchased in of oldeset version 11.039 and beleive me its not slow..onli thing you have to do is-
1.Switch off theme effects
2.disable autostart of smstimer
3.disable autostart of indisms
i am xpert user of phones used n95,n81,n72,n70,6300,htc and many...so dnt wry about my xpectations or xperience about phones
SLOW OPENING OF PHOTOS
i have not tested it deeply but i clicked some photos and tried to zoom it ..it was quick..But cant comment for many photos.
But one solution if you are facing this problem is-
DEFRAG YOUR MEMORY CARD USING YOUR COMPUTER AND CARD READER..This will speed up read and write operations from memory card..
I thinks its of Glass type plastic...BUT NOWAYS ITS CHEAP...its very fine..you will take time to adapt..onli thing is that green and red button are very small..in starting you may press "C" instead of Red button
Hey guys dont hesitate N79.just buy it and update the latest firmware as soon as possible it surely fix ur probs.
Its stereo speakers are really rock u.
For this price any other company(SE,Samsung,Lg......,) can't produce phone with high range features.
In my opinion just wait for 5730 review.

OS is good too.
