The placement of the 'C' key is AWFUL. It's so hard to enter text quickly and not accidentally hit the end key! SO FRUSTRATING!
I regret, 31 Jan 2009So what are you trying to say is that, I am biased towards the N79 and I'm in favor of the N82... moreyes, it's true, N82 is a better cameraphone, but N79 is a better videocall phone. Just compare N82 CIF to N79 VGA. So N82 is not the best quality image phone in my opinion.
Today I updated my firmware version to 11. After updating the phone is starting but I can't use it. I get WaveSecure Alert saying "Phone blocked due to SMS sending failure"
I registered my mother's phone as rescue number for Wave Secure.
The unlock code has been somehow misplaced..
I can't use the phone anymore.. :( Please help me out! Thank You!!

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.

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?
