Y do you keep comparing this to the n82!! This is a new model out, smaller, changable back covers, camera works fine night & day, if i go to a wedding etc i would take my digital camera with me anyway!! This has a good sized memory card with phone content, its fast no lagg & mine has never frozen in the 6 weeks i have had it, the keypad is very easy to use. If people want the n82 then go for it but y keep salgging off this handset, its a matter of opion to which is better.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2008thats it! people who will buy n79 are just concerned about the looks of the phone! but for me,... moreDo you know that all those advantages you have said about n82 are only in relation to the camera? Ti omap Dual processor, 3d graphics accelerator, xenon flash, etc. They are all related to the camera. Why dont you be more general and say something else it can do better?...thats right. There is nothing else that the n82 can beat the n79 at. N79 is supposed to be more of an all rounder. Thats why it can do more things than n82. N82 is camera centric and that is why it has a better camera. But thats just about it for the n82.
Hello, i have this phone, and i wonder if i have to instal an ativirus (like kaspersky) or not? if anybody has a link with ativirus for nokia pls post. 10x

My older Nokia 6125 has this "Insert smiley" option. Am I missing something?

Nokia N79 review from Steve Litchfield(All About Symbian) :
"This time it's the Nokia N79, which, like the N96 before it, though full of 'toys', is ultimately not powerful enough when compared to the older N82 and N95 variants. A lack of graphic acceleration and poor video capture are two aspect which Steve felt disappointed with ..."
thats it! people who will buy n79 are just concerned about the looks of the phone! but for me, its looks is a major turn off! the keypad is really gay. i cant stand looking at it. and i really dont see anything good about n79. n82 looks is so much better. its stunning and decent. as for features, n82 has the best camera. n82 is the cheapest handset equipped with an expensive tiomap processor. n79 suffers from producing good videos because of its lack of a 3d graphics accelerator. a 3d graphics accelerator also gives advantage of being able to play psp-graphics like games. n82 is best in media production. n79 is only good, not best, in media consumption. n79 is like a female version of n82. really, i really dont like the looks of n79 at all, the design of keypad is a major turn off for me. its like a keypad from a l'amour series. remember that? thats why i rarely visit this page because i find this phone so uninteresting. n82 is in league with high end phones like n95, n95 8gb, n96, but it costs so much lesser than them. in fact, n82 is a very practical phone since it's literally an n95 in bar form. and in many instances, its even better than its high end counterpart, n95/n95 8gb. now can you say n79 is better than n85 or n96? you are paying 50 dollars more for a slimmer, (in ur opinion not mine) better looks, better sound quality, fm transmitter, fp2.... thats a good thing. but youll be sacrifing a better camera with larger lens and xenon flash, 3d graphics accelerator crucial for imaging, video and gaming, and an advantage of a dual processor. n82 is more practical than n79. in fact, the only hardware that n82 noticeably lacks in comparison to n79 is fm transmitter, while n79 lacks a powerful xenon flash, and a dual processor with 3d accelerator (most felt on video quality).
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2008n82's advantage of having a so much better camera with a very powerful xenon flash, dual proce... moreHa ha ha. I cant believe you. Im sure if n79 could transform a car, you would still flaunt the n82 and its camera, xenon flash, etc. Most people who buy the n82 dont even know it has a dual processor or 3d graphics accelerator (nor do they care). The n79 has features that you can actually see in action. There is no way you can compare a 3d graphics accelerator to a fm transmitter.
Plus the difference in pricing between n79 and n82 isnt huge (less than 50 euros). The music on the n79 is far better than n82. Check the audio quality tests on the review and you shall see it comes close to n96, although its a bit less louder than n96.
And for the record, the n79 camera isnt disappointing at all. GSMArena is the only website to complain about it. Most sites say its good and comparable to 6220c with sample pictures posted for proof. Are they all wrong?
N82 is camera centric while n79 is a general all rounder.
So stop trying to spoil the n79 image (and n82 image in the process).

Sure, for the price now N82 is a real bargain (16200 bahts in Thailand = 344 euros), but no way i will buy this monster size TerminaTor phone. N79 looks far more elegant. And the video light is a must, when filming close up bedroom exercise...

n79 doesnt specialize on anything. it has 5mp camera but image quality is disappointing. it has good sound quality but not the best, n96 and even n81 have better sound quality than this. a smarter choice will be n82 now that its cheaper and has the best camera ever on a phone. while n79 is just a n82 copycat but still under par with n82. get the n82, cheaper but better!

Other than that n79 clearly has either the same or better features like fm transmitter, navi-wheel, better looks, better keypad, better screen and speakers, better music quality, newer OS, etc.
Is there a picture where we can see the white and the grey versions together?
