RATING ON THIS PHONE: IN COMPARISON WITH NOKIA N95 AND N82:
1. design-9.0-slim and well constructed, keypad is a little hard to press at first, it will get better if you're used to it. Whoever has big big! fingers will have hard time with the keypad.
2. sounds(music/loud speaker)-8.8-music quality is very good and the loud speaker is above average
3. camera-8.5-camera takes decent picture if you know how to adjust the settings, video recording is above average also. LED can be used as a torch!!!
4. GPS-takes 2-4 minutes to get locked on from fresh!! after that, it's very fast
5. user interface-is fairly fast
6. reception-is very good, it doesn't drop calls like sony phones!!!
7. battery-normal use 1.8days+, heavy use 1-1.5days. the life of all batteries will be shorten about half after 6 months of usage!!! What's wrong with charging the phone every night?
8. touch scroll pad--works for some and does not work on all interfaces!!!
IN COMPARISON WITH NOKIA N95 AND NOKIA N82!!!
Galiver, 08 Jan 2009guys i'm managing to buy this baby..and i wanna ask current users;are u happy with its battery life?Awesome phone, have had alsorts including Sony Ericsson C905, which was seriously flawed!
But N79 has great Spec, excellent battery life, games,etc.etc, Can't fault it!
Its all in all, reasonable cost, having bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, 5mp camera, good looking. I'll probably buy it.

i jux bought tis hp for almost a week,nice battery life,can last for very long time d battery,but i want to know wad is d use of the navi wheel..pls reply me tyty
i've had this phone for 3 months now. Amazing battery life.. Best phone among the n series. Sleek and stylish and light weight (compared its other counterparts).. Music is good and the camera is awesome... My only problem with it is that the camera is not that great with night shots and the pics come very grainy in the dark (even with the flash). But thats just a minor issue. The phone's a phone and a real good one at that.. I definitely recommend..

Go to Messaging and then select Options->Sim Messages. Basically the icon is blinking ... moreThanks mate, i fix it yesterday! But you shoud know- the icon is blinking because the SIM memori was full.If the messages saved on your sim are unread the icon doesnt blink.
Thanks alot for the reply
N79 is a very good phone- Real Swiss Army knife !
For me., this model is good., user friendly and very nice when listening to music because of the navi-wheel., Perfect!
my n79 can recieve text messages but it wont send any. can someone hlep me?
for those who thought the n79 was so girly, now nokia presented the n79 in petrol black with dark grey, steel grey and deep plum xpress on covers... that's good!
khayaal, 08 Jan 2009i am having a problem with my N79...the Display light does not for more then 3seconds.. even i... moreyou only who have this problem i didnt face it at all,
you should go to nokis service center
Well well well.. This phone is a gem.. I own it for the last two weeks and I haven't found any flaw in this phone.. Display is fantastic and so is the built quality.. Camera is decent.. Takes great picture in day time.. Latest S60 v 3 FP2 makes 79 the most powerful phone in its class.. Keypad is little difficult to use in the beginning but with time fingers just adjust on it :) battery backup is very good.. With super heavy use i get 2 days full backup.. This includes everything including using net and wifi.. I strongly recommend this phone..
