Aaron, 09 Jul 2009Have you seen the camera reviews of N82, or have you tried it yourself? Even in total darkness... moreWhat are you talking about? I guess you must be replying to another person's post and not me. Seems like you are barking at the wrong tree. Maybe you are replying to Aditya's post, aren't you?
Have tried this phone. Unfortunately not as good as good old Nokia 1100. What a phone that was. Super fantastic phone the 1100. This phone is not worth the huge money. Buy 1100 you will be very happy. Pictures on this phone are not as good as a camera. Even a 1 MP Sony camera takes better pictures and sound quality too is very bad. Build quality not as solid as Nokia 1100.
Hi thanks to you nokia true user. Your review is awesome as I am now looking to buy a new hp around rm1000-1200. I want to have all features in my phone but also good texting phone. SE W705, new 5730 xmusic and n79 within my scope now. I thought W705 is easier to text but it is okay only i guess after trying it at one of the shop. N79 i try before. Not feel at ease in texting. Guess if you want to get it all like a phone like n79, there will be some small compromises. I have got some question to ask. I can browse all kind of youtube video using wifi and suft my favourite football website like skysport.com? can you try it out for me the skysport.com? thanks.
hello all. i'm gonna make a review of nokia n 79. i've already using this phone for 2 months now.(true story). this is my first n series phone. and i alsoused nokia 5800 xm. here's nokia n 79 review:
1.Superb and best audio quality! even at max there's no distortion at all!
2.Camera is great for my opinion. actually this is a my first 5 megapixel phone after all. but can't beat n 82. but for me the picture taken is clear and nice. wayyyyyy greater than my friend phone k 850 and c 902.
3.navi wheel is the best! is easy to scroll just soft touch the flat d pad. n 78 and n 81 has a not very good navi wheel than n 79. n 79 is tha best!
4.key pad is easy for me to press.not mistype when i'm texting peaople. its not hard to press or hurt your thumb like n 78 and n 82.
5.auto rotation is fast and responsive! even faster than nokia 5800.
6.the price is quite resonable. for 5 megapixel carl zeiss and other multimedia. in malaysia is rm 1499 but i have a discount 1299 hahaha(nokia original store.)
7.the video quality is really superb! it clear like you have a handycam! im a skater, every trick that i do is been seen clearly no lagging whatsoever.
8.it has the best wi fi! wayyyy better than nokia 5800. i live in 5th floor and i can get almost 7 or 8 wireless connection. the wi fi signal strength is great! if you heard anyone comment ths phone wi fi signal is bad,they're lying.
9.i dunno why gsmarena put the telephony speaker test is average the telephoney is awsome telephony speaker just like my old nokia 5320 xpress music(i changed nokia 5320 to n79 because of poor battery life).
10.the best part of this phone is a three xpress on cover free. i got brown,white and red. it changes theme colour whenever you change the backcover. for example you change the backcover from brown to whie after insert the white cover,you can feel the vibrate nd look at the screen and voila! the theme colour turn white!
11.it also have audio theme where you can adjust your tone such as keypad tone,battery low,chare or empty battery tone and background music for menu.
1.when i first buying this phone. the phone frequently hand and lag when you want to go to menu or other appication. i suggest you update the software to version 21. sunmting sumting. then the hang and lag problem will gone.
2.auto rotate sometimes doesnt respon and navi wheel sometimes slow. i still suggest you to update the phone software.
3.although the sound quality is nice and awsome, but the volume is too low for me. even the monoish w350 is even louder and my old nokia 5320 mono speaker is even even even louder than the stereo speaker n 79.(come on! this phone is stereo speaker shouldn't it'll be louder than mono speaker?)
4.although you can get one free n-gage game,you can only have a trial version. i want to download a full version but must purchase or even use activation code(help me on this)
5.about the camera, hmm its only good at daytime and auto focusing when in daytime and night. but when you want to catch outdoor at night is actually good but on top of the images it has a over bright flashlight because of the reflection light of the flas. if you watch closely you will find that between the flash and lens there's a metal gap line. because of that,i cause the image quality at night become worse because of a bright reflection light(what are they thinking? i think the they should use a plastic gap nt a metal gap)
i give this phone 9.5 out of 10 because of the resonable price and a very good n series mobile phone. ithink for you teenagers if you want to buy a simple multimedia phone this pone is for you because of all you want facilities are in here. i highly reccomended to anyone who want to buy a rich multimedia application with reasonable price.remember, is just a phone not a home screen thing soo thanks for reading my honest(i think) review. see ya!

RBa, 09 Jul 2009No. I do not mean that the N82 goes to overexposing my photos. And my N82 isn't faulty. In fac... moreHave you seen the camera reviews of N82, or have you tried it yourself? Even in total darkness, N82 still manages to capture bright and clear images as if there is a luminous source of light. Even N86 with its variable apertures lens and 3rd general dual LED flash can't capture pictures in total darkness as bright and clear as N82. Xenon is really a must have for a cameraphone. And N82 video recording is focused about 2 metres from the subject. It means, you'll be getting equally clear videos of your subject within 2 metres. N79's video is prefocussed on infinity. Meaning, you won't be getting clear videos of someone near you. Because as the camera gets near the subject, the video gets blurred.
Yes, N82 can replace a DSLR! In fact, most people who loves taking pictures just want high quality prints and professional looking softcopy of images out of their captured pictures, and they don't tweak their camera settings anymore. Very few will care about and use optical zoom, etc.
More MHz doesn't necessarily translate to better performance. N82 has dual CPU with graphics accelerator. N79 has single CPU only without graphics chip. Both have 5MP Carl Zeiss lens and DVD video recording but N82 gives excellent image results which is above par N79's image quality. Video on N82 is really DVD quality, both shot and playback. N79 is below par N82 on videography. N79 has FM transmitter but it's only usable within 2 metres. N82 has Xenon flash which makes it easy to replace your DSLR. N82 also has more available RAM and internal memory, around 90MB of free RAM upon startup and 120MB of free internal memory. N79's keypad may look better and N82's keypad looks bizarre but actual usability is opposite on the two. The keypad on N79 is harder to press than N82.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2009More MHz doesn't necessarily translate to better performance. N82 has dual CPU with graphics a... moreN82 can not replace a digicam lets keep DSLR apart. Why so well because digicams got many things apart from lens and software.
to start with, aperture setting, optical zoom, optical image stabilization, shutter speed etc etc etc.
I can agree that N82 is better than N79 in imaging but to a camera. NAAAAA
you are comparing oranges with apples and than quoting that oranges are sweater.
please refrain yourself from misguiding.
fab, 06 Jul 2009There must be a problem with your N82. I'm also an N82 user and I'm very much satisfied by its... moreNo. I do not mean that the N82 goes to overexposing my photos. And my N82 isn't faulty. In fact I have never encountered problems with that phone. What I mean is that, only few of my mates really dare to face the very strong Xenon light when they allow me to take portraits of it because its Xenon flash is pretty much causing some seconds of temporary blindness to you, especially when the phone is just about a meter away or less from your eyes.
And yes, I have already found a plethora of sample night photos of the N79, and all I can say is, some of them are passable while most of them wherein I find to use my N82 most of the time is...well disappointing.
Here is a review with sample N79 camera shot at daytime and nighttime.
I used Google translate since it's from Mobile.Mail.ru, a russian website and I guess an affiliate of Smape.com... Anyone who are curious about the N79's cam quality should try to visit too. Here it is:
Can anyone one tell is N79 able to show both caller name and caller no when incoming call? How to set it?
