many people criticize n81 because they believe every nseries phone must be a n95 wannabe. but i don't think so. n81 is positioned as a music and gaming phone whose targeted audience are music freaks and game addicts. i believe a music phone don't need much of great imaging powers! i'm a music aficionado and i care the least on camera. for me n81 is the best music phone released to date, much better than n91. i'm definitely going to buy one again especially now that price has come down.

does any1 knows how to install unsigned appz on feature pack 2
Could someone please tell me which phone has the better, clearer speaker for music, N81 or W980?
I'm interested in them both and i currently use a K800, so the N81's camera would be a downgrade, but i just want a phone where i can just play music through the speakers and have a clear sound, nothing tinny.
I had n81 8gb for about a month and i can say in overall, it's great... my only gripe about it is that it dosen't have lock as in whenever you turn on the power of the phone, it only has lock if a change in sim card is detected...
The disadvantage of the n81 8gb is that when it is spoilt and being sent for repair, most probably you must delete all your personal media if you do not want anyone to view it---it lacks a card slot. here, the n81 micro sd version is better. But on the other hand, n81 8gb good as you can lock the phone in standby screen through the power button---one must know your password if not it cannot be used and view and send stuff inside it(except for n81 micro sd version as people can take out the micro sd and insert into another phone). So it is up to you which one you want...
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2008LOL! You clearly had a faulty unit. :-D you did this very same thing over at the SAMSUNG i450 ... morelook man, this phone, i wont never change it. It has better internet browser, really it is so much better!
And the navi wheel works almost everywhere! And also it is so soft to use, unlike the n81 where the wheel is so hard to press on! Really u have to try it!!
And what really upset me is that n78 don't have gaming keys and no ngage support available yet but i can wait!! Everything else is so dam perfect, and about the music keys i can find in the headset!!

True, N78 is better thn N81 bcoz its got 3 MP Cam, HSDAP(useless for my country), TV-OUT(this is What i want), but not in sound quality i think, "TS" got some points. i wish they update TV-OUT on next Firmware... since N81 hv already Hardware..
Thx for ur help Buddy ;-)
Those who are considering the N78 keep in mind that in some regions like the Middle-East countries the FM Transmitter has been removed or disabled due to laws against Radio Transmitters. It sounds like a great feature i must say,but its not enough for me to get a N78, ive got my N81 and K850 for now and waiting on the XPERIA to come along, i wana get the Black one.
Yep try updating, V20.0.056 maybe available for your product code.
Tell me what your product code is and il check for you. You'll find it in your N81 under the battery. Look for sumthn that says CODE: Give me that number.
Yep you should get the APAC FW, try updating.
Im sure you're aware that not all N78s have that Transmitter, especialy in places like India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and i thnk in Russia as wel.
Chaitanya, 16 Aug 2008Hey Dude !
Is N78 Best in Music ? or its nearly good as N81 or N91 ????????????????
... moreIve played with a N78,and 1st thing i did was try the Music since it was connected to a NOKIA headset in store. I agree with r.o.c.k that its sound is far better than N82. But the N81 is still a lot better, its more crisp,louder and way more bassy. Although i can say N78 was good,it wasnt good enough for some whos had a N91 or N81 IMO.
You must love the N81,you keep coming back.
Honestly, N78 is a lot better than N82 in terms of sound quality. The bass and treble are much deeper, and more pronounced. I've never had N81 'cause I don't like that phone. N78 is really fun to use as a music player. It's complete with all music options - 8-band equalizer, album art, visualization, support of all major audio codecs, ability to play music via any type of headphones using the 3.5mm jack, ability to be hooked to your home stereo system, play music using the stereo speakers and last but certainly not the least, ability to play music to any FM radio receiver using the FM transmitter which is really fun. I can ask my circle of friends to tune in their phone's fm radio to my defined station and I will broadcast my music collection and they enjoy listening to it. So I would say, N78 is the complete and best music phone.
