they say this are the drawbacks of N82
shorter battery life - false, when i upgraded 2 v30, battery was greatly improve, owner can attest to this
no music key - true, only n95, n96, n85 and 5300 have this
dim screen - false, the screen brightnes is perfect, thank God, i dont have to worry about my eyes aching due to ultrabright screen. even TV have picture AI to adjust brightness.
poor speaker quality - false, the v30 fixed this, sound is more crispier and clearer. only the sound is not loud, but it doesnt mean its poor in quality.
no flash for video recording - true in total darkness only, would it be weird recording a video at total darkness
awkward keypad - false, its the best keypad i've tried, with wide spaces in between keypad, i can even text with my eyes close
bulky - false, i call it hunky not feminine like what other wants.. only women call this bulky, not men..it fits perfectly in my hand and the weight is justified

dear sir johndru
not all 6233's are the same as your 6233...
fyi...6233's speaker does not in anyway distort even at max level
something is wrong with your unit perhaps...but that doesnt mean all of the 6233's speakers "suck"...
Now what happens with N82. The situation is like, If I want a dimmer screen, it's already there. But if I want a brighter screen, sorry i'm not allowed to have it. That's just sick. If they haven't restricted it and let it just glow it's lighting to the max. Adjusting the setting wouldn't have been a problem to me if I want a dimmer screen. Although hacking it or installing third-party software might do the trick. It's still a shame Nokia isn't the one who acted on this matter when they should have. And what's more, if you want a brighter screen you have to go through all through this fuss of third-party applications eating up your ram just to brighten the screen or hacking it which doesn't sound really exciting to me.
What do you think?
johndru, 01 Nov 2008the dual speaker of 6233 SUCKS. i had it before and we you put it on the max volume, sound is ... moreto johndru:
That's what just the fuss is all about previously. The restriction of backlighting of the screen. And i'm gonna be so straight-forward to tell you that it is a frigging sick idea. You said it's the way to go as dimmer lighting won't go hard on your eyes. That's your preference, other people prefer that too. Some people in the other hand want their screens to be so bright. Consumers, on their stand, must have their options. Now what I think about it is that NOKIA thought putting it that way would be better for more people. The purpose is good but the means were inappropriate. You get it? They thought that people would like the dimmer screen because it will bear lower power consumption and it won't go hard on your eyes.
It's good that they thought about what people want but it's just not what it is. You get it? If I want a dimmer screen I could lower the settings myself and if I want a brighter screen I should be able to get it too. Consumers should always have the options, and we don't need NOKIA making the decisions for us.
You get my point now?
The situation of N82 is not hardware limitation or manufacturing fault.
It is "restriction", and restrictions are sick marketing ideas.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2008n81 is the nseries that has the closest sound quality in comparison to 6233.the dual speaker of 6233 SUCKS. i had it before and we you put it on the max volume, sound is REALLY REALLY distorted. i don't compress my mp3s so my songs will never be the reason why sound is distorted at max. i've compared it with other 6233 and the result is the same.
i think the low backlight of n82 is a bad idea. it's more of a better idea since our eyes will not get strained compared to when you have n95 or n81.
Joe, 01 Nov 2008Can some suggest any nokia phone that has grt sound like 6233 especially any N series. pls n81 is the nseries that has the closest sound quality in comparison to 6233.
Sandwich, 31 Oct 2008should i buy this phone or n79? whats the major drawback 4 this phone? drawbacks of n82:
shorter battery life
no music keys
poor speaker quality
no flash for video recording
drawbacks of n79:
no music keys
no 3d graphics accelerator
Can some suggest any nokia phone that has grt sound like 6233 especially any N series. pls
Sandwich, 31 Oct 2008should i buy this phone or n79? whats the major drawback 4 this phone? Both phones dont really have any major drawbacks. The n82 is a bit stronger in the camera department. The n79 is more fashion (and slightly music) oriented, although it has a good camera as well like the 6220c. It just depends on what you want. But what i know is that n82 is definitely a good phone on all fronts.
Wait for the n79 review which should be out next week, but most of the users in the n79 havent really reported any major problems so far.

N82 can record video, its same as 120fpm in my standard, more than enough for me to view tv quality video..so n82 can do what innov8 can do
N82 can play good ngage games and yes 3D games up to 30fpm, more than that in my own standard, does it matter, my life doesnt evolve on playing games all the time rather, n82 can do what innov can do
n82 can produce top notch and decent images, yes, yes, im my standard
n82 can produce decent sounds that suites my taste, is it sonic? more than just sonic for me thats because my life doesnt evolve in that rather
i love watching divx movies in my n82, is it the best quality, yes in my standard
since i answer yes in all your questions, i can freely say than i can do anything innov8 can do in my n82.. if you dont agree with me then thats your problem
moral lesson, hapiness of a person cannot be measured by counting benchmarks etc, its more than that.. next time keep ur benchmark points on ur own because we have different benchmarks in life.
yoda, 30 Oct 2008oh yes my young padawan, cut, copy and paste present indeed...oh thankx yoda.. but i havent seen in the pic so there4 i askd....by the way does it contains al keys like n73..thankx again
iolo003, 31 Oct 2008toot! story begins.. Got this comment from Cute Guy from n96 page. their are nothing tha... moreu said, "their are nothing that innov8 can do that the mighty n82 cant do and its cheaper by a mile". can n82 record videos at 120fps? can n82 play games with graphics accelerating up to 30fps? can n82 produce higher resolution images with better quality? can n82 offer top notch sonic experience? can n82 play movies with superior quality both on device screen and via tv-out? if you can answer "YES" to all those questions, i might agree with you that there is nothing that innov8 can do that n82 cant do.
Fantastic machine with an extraordinary features & downloadable programmes compared to the newest models.
chimaera, 30 Oct 2008Help me guys, which phone to do recommend, N82 or N85? Thanks for the reply!N85, but if you short of money N82....
let's just put it this way. The INNOV8 would surely not have mercy on your pocket. For the sake of practicality I don't think going for i is advisable just for the handful of upgrades it offers over N82. Just go for it only if you really need it. As I've said, it depends on what you prefer. But for those seeking an opinion of which phone is better especially for it's price. It's N82 definitely.
