will cut straight to the point!this phone is marvellous with its wifi,edge,awesome sound quality,picture clarity nd its cheap price.this is a dream phone for any phone lover.BUT, there is a problem which i think was why nokia had to stop its production,its keypad goes bad after a while.Of course not in all n79 phones,but whoever is unlucky to land a potentially bad keyboard would inevitably have to change it and pray the new keyboard is also not a potentially bad one.
i have d phone nd unluckily have landed 3 bad keyboards in a row.i see all d great features,but mostly unable to use dem cos of d keyboard.i m still working on getting a 4th keyboard(which costs 50 dollars each),maybe will be lucky......
MY ADVICE- RIDE UR LUCK!!!!!
The n79 is good i just wonder if people know how to use it...it is a fantastic workhorse but with good multimedia..All fones can hang i even have a fairly top gaming computer not the best by any means but fairly high powered and that can still crash..The biggest cause of hanging is low RAM so be sure to exit apps your not using,,reboot your fone at least once a day to clear out heavy browsing junk and clear cache which fills up..Keep your fone updated and spring clean it cause just like a computer temp files caches all build up and clog the system..My mates i-phones crashes so does my touch pro 2 ,n958gb,,n82,,n900 and hero,,i am tech geek but even the best smartphones need some help to keep fresh and uncluttered..

Ok, my 2cents.
I just moved away from an E51 and was hesitating between the N79/E72/E55. Finally i went for the N79 as it was being given free on a plan.
Not the best of phones out there but not as bad as the people here are saying. I really like the form factor!! Sweet as but the E series have a nicer metal feel with them. The camera is good too, provided you have enough light. Shooting pictures in the dark is baaaad.
Operating system, hmmm, i preferred the E series. E series allows for more customization than the N79. The phone is pretty quick, not as sluggish as some people say.Those people criticizing this phone are after perfection.
The music is loud and nice, the gps is good too. I wanted to try an N series because after buying an E series last time i kept thinking that N are better but not that i've tried it, i will definitely be going back to E series after my contract expires.
The keys take some time getting used to, they r quite hard to press on, being plastic.
Overall the phone is good, not the best out there but a decent phone to use.
would not bother with c905,,n86 is heavy and sulight ledgibility is awful,,n79 good allrounder ..

Tarek, 28 Mar 2010dear friends i'm comparing between n86 and n79 and sony ericsson c905 plz give me ur feed BA... moreN86 and C905 are hefty and uncomfortable during texting.and feel like a big load in pocket. Both have excellent cameras no doubt, but N79 is an all rounder, cheaper than both, friendly size and can do pretty much every thing N86 can. Unless your requirement is an excellent camera, go for N79. C905 does not make good videos even, so if u want to decide between c905 and n86, remember that n86 makes brilliant videos also.
