I wanna know what you've been smoking coz its clearly messed... moren81 is not the best music phone! it doesn't even have a proper equalizer! n81 is for young people that's why it's marketed as music and gaming phone because youth today are focused on those 2 areas. n91 is the ultimate music phone. nothing beats it up to now! you feel like a disc jockey when you have it! n78 is better than n81, n82 and n96. why? because it's so much more affordable but what you get is so much fun! you are just looking at the specs. you don't look at the actual experience you get from this device. n78 is much more fun to use. you get everything for a very low price. this phone means fun! while n81 is a very dull and boring phone. not really worth the price. period!
Thats great Dan, you'll love it, had mine for 10months now! I got it for R4200 thats around 300 Euro, and i dont regret it, i was one of the 1st non NOKIA Employees to Walk out with a N81 before the major networks had it in my country, despite some of those reviews complaining about the plasticky build its actualy pretty solid. What phone are you using currently?
Tsepz, 28 Sep 2008Thank You Dan!! Thats exactly it! The N78 is a joke! It really doesn't have a concrete place i... moreNo problem. But its the truth. Back here, its still going for 410 euros, while n81 is 260 and n82 is 350. By the way, i got myself enough cash. I wil be getting an n81 in a few days. Its selling like hotcakes over here.
Thank You Dan!! Thats exactly it! The N78 is a joke! It really doesn't have a concrete place in the market.
Final ask before go to nokia shop,
Which is better, N81 8GB or N81 with card?
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2008that is the last firmware that would be released for n81. nothing more will come in the future... moreN78 better than n81, n82 and n96? I wanna know what you've been smoking coz its clearly messed with your head.
At the moment, n81 is the ultimate music and gaming phone, n82 is the ultimate camera phone and n96 is the ultimate all-in-one device. N78 has serious construction flaws, badly placed buttons and really horrible looks. No wonder nokia was so quick to announce n79. In fact, nokia used n78 as a dummy to find bugs in the feature pack 2 OS. Quite a few of them were found and addressed. Thats why the other fp2 phones like 6210n, 6220c dont have the same software problems as n78.
The only reason its price got lowered is because it would get mauled to death by n82 and the upcoming n79 which possess better construction, better cameras, etc. It just doesnt stand a chance.
Tsepz, 27 Sep 2008Lol, the N78 is a fugly phone so im glad the N81 doesn't look like it.n78 is the best looking phone out there! it's so beautiful. it's even mistaken by some people for an iphone!

LMAO! I was obviously talking about the software modifications, don't worry next time il draw pictures for you to understand lol. N78 better? Nah, thats why its cheaper :-P
Dont be so sure that its the last update for N81. ;)
Tsepz, 26 Sep 2008A lot of those can be added via Firmware updates.

Tsepz, 24 Sep 2008Whatever floats your boat. N78 is a waste,its definetly not worth getting if you've got a N81... moreN82 or n79 witch one mus i buy . I like the n79 design but the function not better than n82
I own n82 and used hellocarbie to remove screen brightness control which worked fine. Is there any way to remove EU sound volume restriction on N81 8gb ??. Please help

The FM Transmitter has poor signal, there are now N81 contracts that come with a free GPS Reciever that offers far better signal than built in GPS reciever, HSDPA fair enough that is great but then again not many countries have it, those that do have low coverage and for larger downloads Wi-Fi hotspots are there, the Camera is definetly an advantage il give that to N78, the 1200mAh batt not realy, seeing some of those figures are not much higher than N81 which has become even better due to the addition of ODP to it. The N78 realy doesn't add much as ive said, and the loss of Multimedia keys is not good and realy its master at nothing, and the lower OpenGL scores given by N78 are discouraging. Its fine the N79 is worth waiting for.

Anonymous, 26 Sep 2008you will never get it right! n78 is much better than n81. in what terms is n81 better than n78... moreWell then you'll just have to get over it. :)
N81 has the Multimedia keys, the far superior audio quality, an 8GB varient, better build quality, and the better OpenGL scores, not to mention the FP2 effects that were added.
Like ive said, the N78 is not an upgrade to a N81 User, rather get a N79 or the real N81 successor the N85.
Tsepz, 25 Sep 2008The fact that the N78 is priced lower than the N81 says it all. :) AFAIK the N79 will be out ... moreyou will never get it right! n78 is much better than n81. in what terms is n81 better than n78? nothing!
