n79 where it is made? in china or in finland?
plz someone answer me
Hey guys u said to me that nokia n79 is better than nokia 5800 for me, but is it gd for the internet like nokia 5800 or is it difficult to use???
thx for ur reponses!
i have given my complete thoughts about the camera of N79 and N85,with the money you pay you get a very decent ( but not perfect) set of device wich can shoot and record movies,now after expressing my respect to my friend Rohit , i tell you why i think N85 is better :
1)bigger screen size
2)very great and superb colors and killing screen,wonderfully able to produce viberant colors
3)without the slightest shadow of dought more beautiful and more modern looking than N79
5)dedicated keys for games and N-gage
6)made in Finland ( while N79 is just chinease !!!!!)
7)8 gigabyte of memory coming with the box
8)cool design and wonderful material used for building it,looks on par with N96,very classy and expensive looking !
quality of music,camera and battery life on N79 and N85 are nearly the same,so if you are lucky and don't have the software problem ,N85 rocks! ( by the way some people complain about their N79 hanging all the time too)
in the end i appologize to all fans of N79,i know this is kind against the rule to come to this room and assasinate N79,i only wanted to help and give some fair thoughts of mine.
good luck every body!
thank you bro,fortunatly after two days of intensively using the phone and doing everything with that , my N85 hasn't had any rebooting problems ! by the way i have tested the camera on both of these devices,N85 and N79 , you know i am kind of a serious amatuer photographer,i have a canon EOS 40D and two Nikons,i do a lot of shooting !the camera on these two sisters are abselutly similar to eachother,nearly the same results ! on my colleagues lended me his N79 today so i can shoot that too,i worn you my friends that the cam on N79 and 85 has deteriated , something about the algorithem ,they can't produce very stunning results like N82 or N95 ( eventhough for basic needs and casual snaps they are more that enough ),some weird thing about movie mode is that when filming near things they are kind of blurry! so the quality of the movies are the same as N95 , but just on the paper ,unfortunately they can't compete their grandfather ( N95) in the real world,but again these guys are really better than loads of cellphones in the aspect of filming !
final note : with enough light you can have very nice ,eye catching pictures ( but don't go too far,it's only a cellphone not a digital camera) and belive me if you are into photography,by doing some tricks using photoshop or lightroom you can do miracle on your N79 pictures ,even the ones wich have taken in dark places !
persian guy, 21 Jul 2009hey guys,look i've had a lot of different phones before , including N73,N95,N95 8GIG,N70,N90, ... moreTo Persian guy
Dude ur comment is true and bitter N79 does feel cheap but if u ask me to chose from N79 and N85,I'll choose N79 irrespective of its bad design coz N85 has a rebooting problem it gets restarted many times in a day.See the nokia discussion many had restarting problems.
N79 feature is good and it only got minner issues. So m still N79 fan at the end.
Hope u don't find any trouble with N85.Enjoy with ur N85,u have buyed a very sexy lokin phone dude.
firmware 30.... is out but whu I cant install from the phone , only with PS
i bought it just 1 day ego and knew that there is firmware newer (30.011) but it's too big foor download !!
140 MB and during software updating, it go on fail ! (((
what is the solution ???
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970go for N79 coz @ age 16...most of you guyz text that much and its not convenient with the 5800
my friend 8500 Xpress music is really bad,it sucks,the touch screen is really trible,the camera is a joke , eventhough making videos with that is fine,but the camera is really ridiculous.8500 is very fat too,big and chunky,you have to give time to nokia to become better th touch screens ! for your age N79 is a better choise ! you may want to check sony ericsson w902 out too,that seems to be a nice touch,good luck .
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970 dude n79 better 1its cheaper 2 5800 has a stylluys which makes a lot of scratches on da screen 3 mY friend has a 5800 and has probs with da touch screen
hey guys,look i've had a lot of different phones before , including N73,N95,N95 8GIG,N70,N90, some sony ericssons and samsung ! so you see i have tested a bunch of phones there ! today i went to the market to buy a nokia N79,i had read lot's of reviews of it and also user opinions in this great website.i was shocked when i saw the phone and hold it in my hands,the only word to describe it : awful ! i mean really disappointing and horrible,cheap looking and plasticky and UGLY ! yes the pictures on the internet are super sexy,but the phone in real life sucks big time,very bad design.at first i thought the keypad is matt plastic,but when i saw it and hold in my hands it turned out i was wrong,the keypad is terrible,no getting used to ! the screen is not big enough or really nice,camera,just mediocre ! i finaly ended up buying a nokia N85 and i am really happy with that,bigger screen ( 2.6 " in comparison with 2.4" ),really better and more beatiful graphics,cool gaming phone(eventhough i don't play !) atleast really better and more practical keypad and very gorgeous ,note: N79 is only chiniese but my N85 is finn,N79 just comes in chinieese version,when you hold these two phones next to eachother N79 is really dead,very dull.and something else,i never belived that N-series could be so fantastic at music,i mean N95 was just very ordinary at music,but this baby ( N85) really rocks,by the way i have heard that N79 is good at music too,so by buying N85 be sure you won't miss that part either.to the one being confused at buying 8500 xpress music or N79,i really don't recommend 8500,it is not a good phone,N79 is better,ofcourse N85 is more superior !thanks for the great website,by the way i hope N79 lovers won't find my ideas offensive.
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2009Hey, i got this phone for christmas and apart from a few problems, its been great. One thing w... moreyes there is a solution to the problem of music being played loud when you get a message. simply update your phones firmware. its been fixed in the new one. i had the same problem. now its fixed. :)
Hi shady . You just need to install opera mini browser on n79 phone . It allows you to browse www sites in a mobile view or even full pc like view. About facebook. Well myself using facebook on it and i get only problem in uploading photos else u can view the whole site like pc or can visit mobile facebook . You can upload s to flickr or youtube. About style well i own an n79 black one . And believe me its very stylish. I love my phone.
