why are you guys keep on complaining about the camera?
the pictures look not great because you guys don't know how to adjust the camera settings!!!! all the pictures i took are clear and great!!!
the best thing about this phone is it has LED flash for video!!!!!!!!!!!
Antony, 14 Dec 2008I think they named N79 right "Swiss Army Knife" the price of this phone is as sharp as the kni... more1.the design of the phone is really nice and well constructed. slim and elegant look.
2. the user interface reacts a little bit slow because it has more graphic, but it's fine too me. not bad at all.
3. loud speaker is above average, ratio compared to nokia n95 (8-10). you know nokia n95 has the loudest speaker!
4. camera is good (not excellent), but you have to play with the settings a alittle bit!!!! video is good too, yet it has LED enable otpion(cheers for that)
5. music quality is decent, you need good earphone!!!
6. Map, it takes 1.5-4 minutes to get locked on depending on your location.
overall, i like this phone very much. i give it a 8.5 out of 10.
Do not buy N-79 until price down for five or 6 months then you can buy N-79. TAKE TIME!!!!
Guys, Is the camera really so bad? In the review of this phone, GSM Arena has provided some sample pics taken with n79. Those photos look preety nice to me.
In order to compare, they have also provided 3 photos of the same object taken with n79 and two other phones. I dont really see much diffrence in the picture quality in the 3 photos. :)
Some people are reffering the camera as a fake 5 MP camera simply by seeing the quality of the photos taken themselves, but as per my knoledge, Megapixel value does not reflect picture quality, It represents the number of CMOS optical sensors under the lens. The more the number of CMOS sensors, the more the resolution of the picture will be.
Had this phone a few days. Typical Nokia mid range phone, good at everything but excellent at nothing. Many freezing when video recording, i suppose because there was another application open. As I don't use half of the functions (gps, Fm transmitter, wifi,...) far too much complex. But i changed for the best phone now, Samsung Pixon
Price Pixon here in Bangkok = 18500 bahts + Tv out cable 390 bahts = 400 euros
Price N79 = 14900 bahts + Tv out cable 1680 bahts (!!! ) = 350 euros
For only 50 euros more you get a top quality 8Mp huge touch screen screen, with the best video recording on a phone, instead of plastic toy with N79. And the Waouuuu factor with the girls is great too. And fonts are huge, when N79 has microscopic fonts. Pixon is a Ferrari, when N79 is a Wolkswagen !
people shall see the real phone instead of viewing it picture
cause the real one very beautiful!!
Hi, Please do the effort and read this. First, if you want to compare the 5800 to something, compare it to other touch screens such as Xperia x1. The N79 is ways better than the n82 in means of typing (hate those rice buttons of the n82), weight and features. If you are a busy person, always carrying your phone, then a lightweight phone is the answer, which is the n79. This phone is highly recommended!!!
I have used all N73, N73ME, N82 and now N79, in all i would say it is the best phone i ever had for the following reasons,
Great Dimensions and light weight
Great battery mine last for 4days with normal use
Very good camera not upto the mark of 5mp but still good
Reasonable price got it for Rs 34000 in pakistan, where n82 is 33000.
Its the fastest mobile i ever had.
Built quality is good.
led flash for video rec.
I dont know what else to search for in a mobile,
I love it
What is the advantage of N78 model having 96SDRAM memory ?
Are this CDRAM important ?
wasted my money :(
I just bought N79 recently. After a few days ive found its defect. i was wondering why the pictures ive taken was lost everytime the fone is off. Ive tested again. Ive took pictures, off it and on. And im right. The pictures are all gone. Its sad because i was really impressed of the advertisement and i thought thats the fone i need. May i request Nokia to manufacture Quality fones because the money that we spend is a hard earned money.
The best phone available right now!
More than a perfect boys why shying away and now at 325 us d the shape tech everything the cons are a little rigid key pad not enough animated themes xenon missing pros extra long battery 4gb schd transmitter 5mp with dual led mark is actually good upto 4m video light is good bundles of accessories and definitely better than offerings at the moment 1 thing i do miss a belt strap baggage
Anybody pls compare n79 with n73 me. m a music fan. I want to upgrade my n73 me to n79. Pls compare only sound quality and loudness from speakers and headphone. Thanks in advance
I think they named N79 right "Swiss Army Knife" the price of this phone is as sharp as the knife and no other nokia phone can beat it due to its humongus price tag. Not worth it guys. I have used it and got bored with it in a week, sold it and bought 5800Express music(Worth the money you spend).
1)Very Bad Camera(Fake 5MP)
2)slow compared response to clicks
3)Its huge in size(Dimension) and small in weight
4)Fm Transmiter is just for namesake (Once u use it u will never use it)- Too much distortion.
5)N-Gage is put just for namesake - keypad is not sutable for gamimg
6)Design of it is somewhat "OK",but still looks cheap!
7)Screen is small and not suitable for browsing
8) Forgot the main thing "Highly Priced"
9)GPS takes more time to start than it predesessor N78
10)People wont belive the price you paid for this phone as it looks plasticky and cheap.
I have lots more to say but my hands are tired of typing!
oh man, people are getting very confused abt the phone by going thru the opinions...some says its very gud and some says its very bad...i'm also getting confused whether to buy this phone or nt..
if nokia has something like brand image than they should exchnage all n79 from market with good 5mp new phone as it has thirdclass picture quality. if u take group photo than side character get spread. yellow color spreads.i am really disappoint buying nokia n79. i really request nokia people to exchange all n79 phone what they have sale with new good 5mp quality phone.i am really ashamed when i compare nokia n79 quality with sony erricson c902 or motorola zn5 phone. even sound are better in other phone.
i don't like nokia phones but, this is the 1st nokia phone i would love 2 buy.....
it's small, it's not heavy (because many nokia phones are big & heavy) , it has everything !
i really like it!
i think it's going 2 be a hit!
