Music: Can't comment much on the audio quality but as far as I know N81 has the best audio quality via 3.5 mm jack and loudspeaker. W910i has the best audio quality among all Walkman phones I've tried. Haven't tried much Samsung phones but i450 has good quality also.
Gaming: Both N81 and W910i can play games in landscape mode. Both phones have dedicated gaming buttons. i450 is weak in this category. N81 is based on NGAGE platform and has better gaming experience. i450 is limited only to some Symbian games. Interestingly W910i also performs better in gaming. It deals with some sort of high quality 3D graphics JAVA games, new platform, not the usual old JAVA games we're familiar of.
When it comes to features, N81, W910i and i450: N81 is the most feature packed having music player, internet browser, camera, game console and phone in one. i450 comes in at 2nd, same as the functions of N81, same that you can expand its features since it has the same OS, but minus the NGAGE gaming. W910i is 3rd it has all the functions of N81 and i450 minus the OS which lets you expand the features of the phone.
Nokia N81, Samsung i450, and Sony Ericsson W910i are the best rivals in music phones category. The most good looking phone for me is N81, but among the 3, it has the worst built. Most units creak and they are so plasticky, but indeed N81 is good looking until you use them personally. W910i probably has the best build among the 3, very solid and you'll know it's made of high quality materials once you use it. It also comes in different color variants, all of which are so cool. I've never liked SE before until I've seen W910i. Samsung i450 looks cool also, it's a dual slider and the N95-ish slide is so nice. Build quality is between N81 (worst), and W910i (best). I like the black i450 more than the white one.
What is the sound quality on this phone compared to a mp3 player or ipod?
how can i view powerpoint ppts. on my phone?
my phone has adobe reader already.
This phone is not a camera phone, hence the 2MP. This phone is a great entertainment phone, regardless of the camera quality. What's the point in having a great camera on a phone? The quality is nothing compared to a proper camera anyway.
Samsung i450 is a Samsung, Nokia>Samsung IMO.
BTW, the i450 has a 2MP camera... Isn't that wwhat you were complaining about? The i450 is so not an entertainment phone like the N81 so it's completely unessesary to compare them
The speakers of n81 are loud enough. Also it is
very fast as it has good amount of ram
Are the loud speakers on the N81 of good quality?..I don't care for extreme loudness..I just wanna know if listening to music thru loud speaker is enjoyable or not
Can any1 help me ,,,where to find (zip 2 unzip) software 4 my symbian ,4 free
if u are planning to buy nokia n81 then u should have certain things in mind which i observed after buying it.
1) the benefits it providing are less than its cost.I'm saying this because a phone of this price offering only 2MP camera is of no worth.quality of camera pictures and videos are very ordinary.
2) Samsung i450 is a very good competitor of it offering almost same features and OS with relatively cheaper price.
3)it offers n-gage which is a big joke with the buyers as only demo versions are being put into this. you have to pay extra for buying full featured games.
if u have no concern with WLan definitly i would recommend Samsung i450. if u r concerned with the camera go for n73 and if u r searching for very good display then go for n81. but the best can be n82 if u can spend a little more for your mobile phone.
hey hows it going i was just wondering if the nokia n81 is touch button on the front and if overall the phone is worth buying in the market..if u could reply to this messege that wouldbe awesome thanks!
i think w910 have good design, slim body and good acsess speed, HOW ABOUT n81?, the wage is 140 gr. Between n81 and w910. Who has a good design?
thanks bro. i just found out that realplayer can fast forward videos by pressing and holding "up" button. i'll PM when i registered. thanks again.
There are some, actually, a lot of people who don't want too many complications in a phone, a phone that's straightforward, has good camera, outstanding music functions, excellent sound quality, slimmer, lighter, but without an OS. Right now, 5610 is that phone, a powerful alternative to N81. Just like the 6500 slide, a great alternative to the Symbian-powered Eseries.
Sup bro. The N81 can fast forward and rewind in Realplayer,just use the Music buttons or otherwise use CorePlayer.
I suggest you register at http://www.prodigits.co.uk you can get hundreds of Symbian S60 software there,just tell me what your username when you've registered then il PM you.
The N81 is FAR better than the SE W910. N81 has Wi-Fi, 16m colour screen,better sound quality through headphones and loudspeaker, Symbian OS S60 UI, AND supports A LOT more Video and Audio formats. :-)
i got a nokia n81 it actually very good,,compare to the nokia n95 its the same only the camera are diffo..the navi key it actually lk the ipod when usin in the media section..it worth to buy it cause it more slick than the nokia n95
