Pzee, 25 Jan 2009All those criticizing the N79, in favor of the N82 i think you guys are just being ignorant an... moreSo what are you trying to say is that, I am biased towards the N79 and I'm in favor of the N82? Oh! And worst of all, I have to do a research before I can publish my post here? Oh! What a??
To tell you frankly, I'm just being honest here. I'm not like others that just simply read someone's review on the net and then rephrase it to make it sound like it's their own and then publish it here?
I post base on my experience and not based on what others say! And really, it is true.
The N82 camera is a thousand mile better than the N79's camera not just simply because of the Xenon Flash. God, there are just a lot of things behind that simple Xenon flash ideology! The excellent post image processing algorithm, the dynamic range, the high resolved detail and the excellent color reproduction are just virtually everything behind the reasons why I, most N82 owners, and professional reviewers, claim that N82 is a great cameraphone and based on my scrutiny, the N79 is by far not as good as the N82 not just by the Xenon flash alone but by a whole lot of image quality parameters that I have mentioned above.
But then again, mark my word: The N79 is not that bad either. It's probably just as good as the N82 at daylight although with slightly different color rendition. But on the other hand, it clearly isn't a leader at night photography since it got a whitish color which is somewhat unnatural. N82 trumps at night because of the Xenon flash and one thing that I have noticed is that, with both N79 and N82's cameras compared with flash turned off on both models and with night scene mode activated, it turned out that the N82 has far lesser digital image noise than the N79.
So I will come up with the same conclusion again...if you are new to the world of NSeries and you're planning to get a 5 megapixel cameraphone for the first time, N79 will just do for you, provided that you are not setting your expectations too high, most especially on the camera and video department.
On the contrary, if your demand for great camera quality is paramount, then my suggestion is to go for N82.

Anonymous, 30 Jan 2009I'm in a dilema choosing between N79 and N85..which one has better sound quality? I like bars ... morewell n79 has better sound and cam quality and also build quality than n85! and the thing u r tokin about getting expire then that is the part of life that every1 hates!~ evrything is going to expire one day! but n79 has a mark of it's own! it's tyhe best allrounder till date from nokia and it also looks the sexiest!
user, 30 Jan 2009have any off u guys cracked the n-gage gameswell it's really hard to crack d gmes in d new firmware! i have tried some websites who claimed they could but when i tried i failed miserably!
MANDEEP, 28 Jan 2009buying this phone means wastage of money sam f480 is far better than thin pease of crap coz ... moreif yo dont like nokia phones than it dosent means that nokia phones are All flop they are better than other. they have much resale value than others.....
has anyone also problems with nightshots with flash or portrait photos with flash in bad illuminated areas? The photos seem very white and you can see the place where the two leds cross each other. So my N79 produces with flash in bad illuminates places very bad photos. The N95 and N82 produce nice or beuatiful photos then.
I'm in a dilema choosing between N79 and N85..which one has better sound quality? I like bars more than sliders, but N85 has bigger screen..I'm afraid if I buy the N79, it'll soon be outdated like what happened to the N81 after N78 came out, and N78 when N79 came out..any opinions?
chokz, 28 Jan 2009i tried the silent profile while using the cam... but sad to say... it still has a camera shut... morego to your settings and turn warning sounds off should turn off the camera sound ....
Thank you "I regret" for your comment(opinion about N79). I think you gave a fair comment to everybody that have been reading this opinions.
My dad has E51, i have N95 8GB, and my sister just bought this one (by my advice). My point is that these s60 devices have evolved so much that they are almost all the same but still unique. We all have different phones, but we share all software, and it is getting more available (read: free) every day. But I think it is smart not to rush and buy a phone you want until it is at least 6 months on the market.
P.S. I really do not like these new touchscreen nokias, but of course nokia has to produce them sooner or later
i've got my n79 a week ago and it's simply amazing..the screen ,,the keys are all fine,but needs feminin fingers for easier use..the camera's resolution is nice but the pic gets hazy when you don't hold the mob well..and ofcourse the 1 free N-gage game is't enough,unfair!..loudspeakers are moderate and finally the best in this mobile is the comfy handling and smart design..more suitable for girls
