I am looking to get a good and affordable camera phone. The Sony Ericsson range seemed invitingly, but then realized their phones don’t have Carl Zeiss lenses (only their digi cams). So I turned to the Nokia N series. The N79 seems affordable enough, but there is some talk that the camera on it isn’t good. Would you rather suggest the Cybershot SonyE phones (C series) above the N79? Thank you.S
N79 is better.
Comes with FM Transmitter
Comes with Touch sensitive wheel
Far better + loud response of speakers than N82
Better ARM 11 369 MHz processor
More Time: Up to 5 h 30 min
Lesser weight 97g

I'm also an N82 user and I'm very much satisfied by its camera performance, both stills and video. The Xenon flash is indeed very powerful but not to the extent that images will appear overexposed. Xenon flash tries to emulate the natural light and not the artificial light as dual LED flash does. N79 is a good phone. But trading your N82 for N79, I don't think it's a smart idea, unless you've got a faulty N82 unit.

it is a good phone ,buy 1 and test drive

Hello guys. I'm a current N82 user and I love its camera quality. However, I do find its Xenon flash to be a bit too powerful so I'm planning to stick to an LED flash-equipped phone instead. My friends are actually complaining the same thing too since when they allow me to capture portraits of them, they want the flash to be turned off.
So I'm gonna ask seriously for the current N79 owners. Is the camera quality of N79 really FAR below the n82 as what other users suggest?
Alright, heres some sample day shots taken from a Nokia N82:
And heres some sample night shots taken from a Nokia N82:
Please compare it guys. Or if anyone can post a link to a bunch of day and night photos taken from a N79 that are uneditted, please post it here. I'll be very grateful especially night photos which matters me most as people claim that N79 is particularly bad in this.
Please N79 users. Thanks and god bless to all.
knggpnnn, 27 Jun 2009Is is truth that pictures are so bad? I mean don't compare them to a normal camera. Is the qua... moreI do think picture quality is one of the worse out there. I had before a Sony ericsson K550 and that one that cost $200 less took better pictures!. I hate this cell phone, I'm looking forward to buy my SE C901
Hi, i purchase a nokia n79 few days ago...
My experience is just awesome. My passion is using latest mobiles it is one of the great piece in nokia n series. It's faster, light weight, best software based.
N79 fans in Singapore!!, I've called up Nokia & confirmed that product was discontinue due to low sales(indeed expensive)....what a pity, I felt sad as I can't replace my dream phone with any other model at this moment.☺
