Hello dear N82 users
Ilve up dated the firm ware to 31.0.016 but the earphone quality did decrease.
And the old problem of upper louad speaker is still on desk.
any idea to solve these problems?
Is it possible to change front and end covers on N82, my is silver and I would like to change it to black version??
Why should I buy this phone rather than the new ones coming out, especially the trend seems to be going for touchcreens? Thanks a lot.ü
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2009Hi aaron,
Seems you are very good in Nokia N82. Wanna ask you questions, please.
1. Is accel... moreThe accelerometer seems to be indispensable nowadays. It is one of the must have features in a mobile phone. On N82, it is used by the camera application for the automatic orientation of the captured pictures. It is also used by the UI for auto-rotation of the screen. There are also a lot applications and games that make use of the accelerometer. To name a few, Panda Manda, Marble Maze, Mirage Money and Resco Bubbles are some of high quality games which are controlled by the accelerometer. Some apps which are accelerometer-based are RotateMe, Inclinometer, ShakeSMS, FlipSilent and Nokmote. Nokmote lets you control your phone, navigate through the menus, enter selection without pressing a key but by just tilting the device. It even makes a keypad-based game accelerometer-based.
About the build quality, N82 is one of the most solid phones I've used. Totally no creaking and no rattling sound even when you shake the phone. The only moving part in N82 is the camera lens cover and the switch but it seems it has no tendency to get loose in time.
N82 in my country is around 16k to 17k which is roughly around 360 dollars.
I just wana know how does barcode reader work in N82. I tried dis utility many time bt could not find and barcodes decoded details. Plz Help me,

Seems you are very good in Nokia N82. Wanna ask you questions, please.
1. Is accelerometer useful, except for taking pictures/video? Can I use this feature for playing games/calling/texting?
2. Is N82 solid in material and design (i.e. hard to loose in camera cover/keypad/front and back cover, etc) ?
3. How much is it in your country? well, I just wanna compare the price.
Thanks in advance....
Hi, i would like to know the differences between the black and the silver/white N82. According to some websites, the black N82 loses out in terms of camera quality. Is this true or is it just false information. Please help because I am really in love with the black N82 but hesitate to buy it because of these rumours. Thanks in advance.
This phone is very good what do you need else good volume,camera,setting,organized,gps,wifiand bluetooth and much and its good price its exxellent.
1sexybeast, 25 Apr 2009IMHO, nice analysis Aaron. based on my observations between the 2 phones, Aaron is accurate. I... moreI would be careful with this phone. Many users report awful battery life, it has a very akward keypad and the placement of the buttons in general is less then ideal. Also it feels cheap holding it in the hand, and the SAR Value is 1,37 which is almost twice as much as N958gb for example. Yes. you can shoot propelers in the dark very nicely with it, but the screen is so small you can't see the difference:) But if N82 is your way - that's ok:)
Just one of the many sites to back me up:
IMHO, nice analysis Aaron. based on my observations between the 2 phones, Aaron is accurate. I'm getting this one too. Currently have 5700xm. Not a terrible phone, it's actually quite fast and rarely hangs, but i want a mobile with a good camera this time. N82's speakers are not too bad also. i'm excited. hehe..
Here are the default N79 themes. They look nice on N82.
koko, 24 Apr 2009Dude I told you. The code is: huseyin I repeat, the code is: huseyinc", copy that dude, thanks for the code..
I've already narrated the comparison between N82 and N95 8GB in my earlier posts here in this thread. I don't want to be redundant. Just search them.
It is not just to say that N82 only has Xenon flash and candybar form and N95 8GB has everything because both of them have the same functionalities. What N95 8Gb has, the N82 also has it. And vice versa. The difference lies on what type is it? For example, both N82 and N95 8GB have a flash, the N82 has Xenon, the N95 8GB has LED. Both have a TFT screen, the N82 has 2.4", the N95 8GB has 2.8". Except from the flash, screen dimension and form factor, everything else between N82 and N95 8GB is exactly the same. So it isn't intelligent to say that N82 only has Xenon flash and candybar form. The smartest way to ask yourself just in case you want to buy a phone and you're choosing between these two is: Do I want a slide or do I want a candybar? Nokia created N82 not just for the camera purpose alone. They created N82 because they wanted to expand their portfolio of all-in-devices. N82 is for people who want an all-in-one device but do not want a slide phone. Search the internet forums and you'll find a lot of user opinions of how they dislike the slide form and prefer the more durable and longer lasting candybar form. N82 is Nokia's answer to them. There aren't too many all-in-one devices which are in candybar form so N82 is one of a kind.
koko, 24 Apr 2009Dude are you saying that N82 is one year older than N95 8GB??? please double check your source... moreI quoted an article in which it was said that N958gb has an expandable memory which ofcourse it doesn't. Can't you read man?

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2009PC Magazine: N82 is the best high quality video capture mobile device
http://www.pcmag.com/... more"For the highest-quality capture, go with the Nokia N82. This Editors' Choice winner shoots 640-by-480-pixel videos that can be up to an hour long at a super-smooth 28 fps. You also get terrific quality from the Nokia N95 8GB, which shoots 640-by-480-pixel video at 30 fps. Both Nokias feature expandable memory via microSD cards and record in the highly compatible MPEG-4 format. (Neither records in high-def—but that resolution isn't bad for on-the-fly footage.)"
Even at imaging which is the only reason one would buy N82, it barely beats a year older brother. I wouldn't post links to magazines that even don't know that N958gb hasn't got an expandable memory. Amateurs making reviews without basic information.
