I just got my hands on it last night. Not my choice personally, but I'll presume I'm going to keep it for a bit. Just needed some feedback though. Some phones tend to get slower once you upgrade their memory cards. This comes with a 4 gig card, but I'll need an upgrade to at least an 8. To what extent is that going to affect the speeds of my phone? It's responses aren't immediate right now either.
dexterx, 03 Feb 2010man 5800 is way better than any other phon in its price class n79 does not even.have a touchscreen.Touchscreen doesn't necessarily make 5800XM or any other phone "better" in its respective price range. There will always be people who'd prefer good old-fashioned button input. Besides, I've tried it and found the OS a bit uncomfortable to use, and I'm a Symbian freak. :) Though I concede 5800 looks damn stylish & has awesome audio. Still, I'm quite happier with my N79.Ü
I guess my point is there is no truly overall better or best phone... Each person has his/her own preferences.
Too much coffee! End of rant...
Had bought this one earlier in sept 2009 white one but that went kaput after its first visit to Nokia Care Centre for SW update. Though it got faster and better the problems that followed were way too much.....got black version which is much better and is working flawlessly from day 1........but now i am pretty sure of not handing over my set to Nokia Care.....what happened to my perfectly ok phone is something i just can't come terms too till now......

Hi frnds. when ever my phone hangs up than my power key(switch off-on key) doesn't work, what i have to do just to remove the batry to give it restart, and other sometime while trying to open blu-tooth an error is shown that "unable to perform blu-tooth operation" does any body face such problem? is there any solution to this prob plz let me know. ok thanx and regard
Its a great phone under 15k. Better than 5800 xpress music or even samsung star 3g. The only thing it lacks is the touch screen. 369 Mhz CPU , 128 MB RAM are sufficient for any multitasking. Besides its got a host of features and appplications in its favour. A definite yes for a mid-range multimedia smartphone.
I bought this very handset on 14 jan 2010. But since 1 feb, the phone notworking properly, sometimes i could not open the Keypad,at that time i have to remove and replace the battery in order to switchon the phone!!. Is this Virus problem?? If yes i like to know the Best Antivirus which i can download it free from internet.., Please help
Whats all this push and pull about RAM? Whether is 128, 120 or 96, would only be material if you are experiencing memory problems. Period. As far as i know with My N79, it has never given me a memory full message despite having many applications open. Again, those applications that give such feedback on RAM can also be faulty.
i agree, n79 does have 128mb ram. most tech sites & forums I have visited quote this much, like wiki, techdb.. i only ever saw 96mb from a few reviewers who obviously didn't bother to check more technical sources for their info.
Fil, 31 Jan 2010N79 has 96 MB of RAM. 128 MB of RAM is the minimum market standards these days. Even samsung ... moreDear bro,u should use some system info softwares to get actual RAM size.I used LCG Xplore (From www.lonelycatgames.com) it shows 128MB system RAM & 369MHz ARM11 CPU..then get ur ass back
I am not fixating my evidence on xenon flash of N82 or LED flash of N79 but it is worth mentioning after using them both that N79 has the weakest camera ( i won't call it worst though ) in the 5 megapixel category and its certainly not better than N82's.
