This is a great phone.The features are just good for a travelling person.Not to mention the internal memory.
beautiful, cool, and affordable phone compared to n95 8gb and n96. cant wait to have one.
Dani, 11 Oct 2008How Many Bands on the EQ of N95 8GB ?It has 8-band as well.
Funny thing is the N82 and N78 have 8-band EQ but their sound is utter crap when compared to N81, so dont use the number of bands as an excuse because its realy irrelevant.
The equalizer of N81 is only 5-band. It can't achieve a good sound effect by tweaking the equalizer. N91, which has 8-band equalizer, can make a song sounds like pop, jazz, acoustic, rock, hiphop, rnb. But in the case of N81 you can't do it. No matter how you tweak the equalizer you can't make the song sound like jazz or pop, etc.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2008complaints about n78 can still be addressed through firmware updates while there's nothing tha... moreN81 still has an update coming, V30 im sure is in the works since the N81 is still the Ngage phone being used to test Ngage games by developers and major tech magazines like NAG, who do all Ngage game reviews on N81, NOKIA are certainly not done with this beauty yet.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2008n78 and n79 are just the same phones. it is just that n79 has 5mp camera, and tv-out plus 32mb... moreWhat do you mean not huge? The differences between the n78 and n79 are many.
Better egronomics, better quality materials, better keypad, better select keys, better looks, isnt a fingerprint magnet like n78, lighter weight, keypad lock, tv-out, lens cover, 5mp camera, video at 30fps, accelerometer, at least 10 n-gage demos with an unlock code for one game, xpress-on covers, bright dual led light for video recording, 4gb card in the retail package, need i go on? The n79 is simply an n85 in a candybar form.
If you want to talk about the n78, do it in the n78 forum. Stop coming here or the n79 forum.
Tsepz, 09 Oct 2008Lol that disappointed n78 user is still here? That explains that creak plastic sound. Why are ... morecomplaints about n78 can still be addressed through firmware updates while there's nothing that can be done to n81's problem which is n81 itself! bleeehhhh!!!!!!!!!
Lol that disappointed n78 user is still here? That explains that creak plastic sound. Why are you disappointed n78 users here, in case you cant read this is N81 Forum, then again most n78 users are uneducated hence why they buy a pointless phone and say the gap between it and N79 is not huge when it is, what a shame. HowardForums and Symbian-Freak all have complained about the n78, i think they even have a forum dedicated to its bugs and why its crap, N81 never had that lol. Anyway you lost n78 users better get back to your forum, complaints are flooding in, if you're able to write so much crap in N81 Forum you should help fellow n78 users.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970n78 and n79 are just the same phones. it is just that n79 has 5mp camera, and tv-out plus 32mb ram more. but basically they're the same phones! the gap between them is not that huge. n78 is meant to be mass marketed that's why the price and feature sets suggest so. n81 is not that's why it has a certain market niche only. n81 is not better than n78. n78 may have lost to n81 when it comes to music and gaming, but n78 beats n81 in camera, gps, hsdpa, battery life hands down. n78 is a better buy than n81 because n78 is better than n81!
N O N A M E n78 user, 04 Oct 2008Man leave him
just let the rating talk
7.7|7.6|7.6 can never as excelent as 8.1|8.0|8.1
l... moreIt's hard to rely on ratings when they can easily be manipulated, especially by fanboys.
Just go to the N78 forum. You'll find more complaints there than there are in this forum.
BTW I've had a feel of the N78 in my local shop. Indeed, it does feel cheaper. And music playback via headphones sound like a cheap MP3 player. After listening to 2 songs, my ears hurt. But the camera is as good as N73's.
man i swear n81 -sound just great. better than n91 i tried the song "runaway"on both the phones and n81-is the best in style and sound
well, i have seen this phone my friend has one, and i think its rly RLY great! and hell yeah i am getting one :D
Great phone, loads of features, memory and a classy look. Oh not forgetting the light weight. Snazzy.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970how delighted i am to use those useless n81 extra buttons! hahaha! this is the phone that can boast nothing but those fancy buttons! those buttons suit only a little kid's tiny fingers!
Kenzo, 07 Oct 2008Were did u see that the Nokia N96 has no Navi-weel and cnt record videos @ VGA 30Fps........ o... morehow many times will i have to tell you that n96 has no touch sensitive naviwheel! all it has is the naviwheel breathing, not the actual naviwheel. and also, vga 30fps video recording on n96 is fake! the highest video quality is set to 352x288 px @ 15fps only. try to record a video with quality setting set to high, then check the details of the recorded video, its CIF not VGA!!! and also the frame rate is not comparable to a 30fps. the current v10 firmware and processor of n96 cannot support VGA 30fps video recording! if you still dont believe, then go a cellphone shop and try it for yourself!
