now i am using n73me and want to buy a n82. But i heard that its battery is`nt good. Is the battery backup really so bad?
umair ahmad siddiqui, 06 Jan 2009dear "chill dude",i think you dont need to take it anywhere to get it formatted.just dial *#73... moreGot it Dude. My presumption was that his on V20 and likes to upgrade to V30.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Oh I almost forgot to mention that I saw a "Made in Hungary" Nokia 2626 here in a single store. But with N82, I have never seen any European makes (Made in Hungary and the likes).
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It's really hard to find Made in Finland, Made in Hungary or any other European-made phones of Nokia here in the Philippines.
As far as I know, all that's left for us to choose from is either a "Made by Nokia" or a "Made in China" Nokia phone. The former doesn't come with a NTC Type Approval while the latter comes with a NTC Type Approval plus a 1 year Nokia Care Warranty Coverage from any Nokia Care point in the Philippines.
So we've got no choice but to stick with the "Made in China" Nokia phones and to try keeping a close eye on the bad record of China in terms of "quality" of their products. A pity indeed as China is the source of the mambo jumbo clones of the vast quantity of weird-looking touchscreen phones here.
But still, at least we've got a "Genuine" Nokia N82. And our task is to take extra care for it - at least that's the impression of the Filipinos as soon as they see a "Made in China" mark. But in the end, it still depends on the user's handling on the phone.
im using n82 for a while now and sure is it is the next most successful nseries and probable nokia smartphones(successor to the n73).
-very nice camera which comes with xenon flash
-sysbian OS is superior
-music player is good which comes with 3.5mm standard audio jack
-high speed 3g, wifi
-gps is awesome
-storage capacity up to 16gb(latest firmware v30....)
-for the bunch of goodies put inside, size is relatively small which is very2 good.
only thing i regret is the relatively small screen heheh only 2.4" much better if its 2.8" because i thick it still have space on it.
well its just for me...(b4 i own an n73....)
I dropped my phone and the camera stopped functioning except the front camera ie for video calls,i noticed that the camera lens has shifted from it's normal position even when it opens it shows straight things vertically but after enough shaking i tried to blow breeze into the the lens compartment alas it opened but later closed,it continued malfunctioning but i wake this morning to see it in a perfect working condition,does this phone have an auto repair chips.
@everyone who post feedback for me..
i think my n82 works fine now, because it didnt hanged for about 15hours.. all i did is i removed my memory card.. maybe its the memory card,
whats the latest firmware?? v30.0.019?
N96 Tessar 2.8/5.2 Dual Led
N79 Tessar 2.8/5.4 Dual Led
N85 Tessar 2.8/5.45 Dual Led
N95 Tessar 2.8/5.6 Single Led
N95 8GB Tessar 2.8/5.6 Single Led
N82 Tessar 2.8/5.6 Xenon Flash
The Winner Is N82...................
_ Price is just right
- Nice 5MP Camera
- Stereo Sound is Great
- A little Bulky
- Easy To Change the firmware using the Net
- Complete with Wifi for browsing the net
- Comes in 2 colors black and silver.
- Texting is Fast
- Battery life is okay can last to 2 to 3 days.
- Radio is clear you can activate the loudspeaker
- You can lock the phone if you don't want others to see it. Wish it had an option to lock the messages only. You can download a software for it if you want it though.
- The Button on the middle tends to chip off.
- The Gallery shows all of the pictures even though you create an album for it.
- Overall its 8.7 out of 10

this is a common mis conception among people.. if you'll use Nokia N82 for internet browsing, you will really get short battery life, even laptops survives only for 2 hours when browsing to think that they have huge battery with them.
if your talking about talk time, thats a different story, Nokia N82's battery can survive longer on calls compared to internet browsing
nice camera quality..how i wish that my n95 8gb or all n95 8gb has xenon flash too..for a better picture quality..
when i use internet by n82 then charge is finished within 3.35hrs. so battery or talk time hr is not good.
earlshady, 06 Jan 2009@celladik and everyone... uhmmm... ill try to use my fon w/o the memory card.. maybe it is... moreYeah bro, im a pin0y too. Yup chek your memcard first if its genuine, if its n0t then thats the pr0blem. Give me feedback on what will happen
Afzal Najam aka eViL, 04 Jan 2009umair bro...u are truly obsessed with N82!!! but it aint ur fault...its that good :D btw...wh... morethis is in reply to afzal najam about comparing the n79 to n82.if we look at both the devices,we see a lot of n82 in the n79,but n79 stands a ground of its own in a few things.firstly the n79 certainly has better battery than the n82.the n79 can play music through loudspeakers for 24 hours in offline mode(tested)whereas the n82 can play music fo only 15 hours with a full battery.the n79 is a bit cheaper than the n82 because of its alleviated demand among users.other than that,the camera of the n82 is palpably the best among the two because it has the powerful xenon flash which the n79 lacks in.the n82 has a better processing machinery and is definitely and unbelievably faster because the n79 doesnt have hardware acceleration as the n82 does.gps locking and performance is faster in the n82 as well.body and style-wise the n79 is downright effeminate.but the n79 also has the symbian OS v9.3 whereas the n82 has os v.9.2(there isnt a whole lot difference between the two versions).the n79 is also lighter in weight than the n82 and less bulkier and also has better keys.in the memory sector,n82 has an internal memory of 130mb while the n79 has only 83mb.the n79 has better sound quality than the n82 but the n82 has louder volume and bass.the n79 cant have better picture quality because its camera lens focal length is 5.4 whereas n82 has a focal length of 5.6.even the n85 has a bit better camera result than the n79.i think there isnt anything that you will miss by buying the n82 in lieu of the n79.

if you have warranty you could change the software for free if not it's not so expensive anyway and you even could let a friend do it for you on his computer if you don't know how
N82 Its the best i've ever used, its cheap for all its option, even it play the place where the video u watch stopped just like a Dvd player with memory, camera perfect, gps top, tv out incredidle, but using all these options it really finishes your battery. The real challenger for this phone is the samsung i900 another perfect phone but expensive and no xenon flash like N82
