Maybe it applies to your region, but not globally. By the way, how can you sell off a phone with a broken slider? At least with n82, you can get some cash. If you take a look at the n95 forum, you will find a lot more problems than just broken sliders. There is proper hardware for the n82 speakers and screen, however it is restricted due to the existing software. Firmware updates have proven to make the speakers and screen much better.
Face it. N82 and even n79 are much more durable than n95 and even n96.
About n82's hype, it deserves the hype because when it was released it was the best egronomically friendly all in one multimedia device and its xenon flash was the strongest. iphone's hype was just because of its user interface and lack of basic features.
there are more reported cases of n82 being sold on second hand because of speaker, screen defects than n95 being sold because of slider falling apart. n82 is cheap that's why it's cheap! use your n82 as an ipod replacement and psp substitute and you'll know how lousy you're device is! there's more to multimedia than camera! even n82 is not the best camera phone! n82 is just an ordinary phone! you take the xenon from n82 and you'll see there's nothing special about it. the iphone deserves the hype that it gets for its revolutionary features more than n82's hype because of a fancy xenon! as if most people prefer night photography! bottom line is n82 is justly priced low for its equally low quality hardware inside and out! if people want a cheaper n95 8gb, then they should buy n82. but if they want a complete multimedia powerhouse, n95 8gb is the only choice! n82 is comparable to n78 and n79, sometimes to n95, but never to n96. while n95 8gb can be compared to n85, n96, samsung omnia, apple iphone, lg viewty, sometimes to n82, but never to n78, n79. got the logic?

Well after struggling to decide which phone to get the fiance and myself are going for the N82. Thanks for the help guys. P.S. Dada, drugs are bad for YOU!
KG, 20 Oct 2008hi guys. could anyone please help me in telling me where can i download google maps for N82. ... moreHi,

Is it possible to have a conference call with more than two participants with this or other symbian phone?
I have read a conference call service description on a website http://www.iphostname.net/ and I wonder if symbian phones are ok for the job.
hi guys. could anyone please help me in telling me where can i download google maps for N82. google had all the devices mentioned except n82. i want to donaload from my laptop not through my mobile. it will cost very much downloading it from the mobile.
y dada so kid, keep take n95 vs with n82, and always say n82 is bad phone. Dada u are so KID!
i want to buy a N82 but i was wondering if it is compatible with the new 16GB Sandisk Micro SDHC or does it just support 8gb? is there any other actual cellphone that keeps up the level of the N82? please i appreciate ur response. Thank you
Dada, 20 Oct 2008N95 can produce the best image quality in the 5MP category and not N82. Go to allaboutsymbian.... moreWhy dont you try comparing photos of n95 vs n82 other sites? Allaboutsymbian is the only exception. Other sites say the pictures are the same.
N82 a lot fatter than n85? Are you nuts? 17mm vs 16mm? N82 was considered slim (considering its features) when it came out a year ago. N85 just came out and isnt even a month old. If you must do a comparison, do it with phones that retain the same level of functionality and appear on the market at the same time. Compare n85 with n79, n95 8gb with n82, e66 with e71. etc.
The n85 may have better materials, but that is just the outer shell. The inner parts will wear out quicker due to its moving design. Furthermore, n85 has an AMOLED screen which has a much shorter lifespan than the normal screens used. By the way, N82 has better build materials than n96 and n95.
About the pricing, it doesnt make sense to pay 100 euros just so as to play games better. The extra money is for the sophisticated build design. That is the main difference between n85 and n79. They have the same functionality, but will employ differently to user experience. N85 will deliver better in gaming and music, but n79 handles better for everyday use. Its smaller, lighter and has a better keypad, isnt a fingerprint magnet like n85, and has a bigger naviwheel. Even if you were to buy an extra 8gb card and tv-out cable to match the n85 retail package, it wouldnt amount to 100 euros.
Those dual sliders are for those who want big screens or those who just want to show off. Dont start posting crap here if you dont like the phone. How come you never post in the 'dual slide phone' section?
N95 can produce the best image quality in the 5MP category and not N82. Go to allaboutsymbian.com and see the result of actual camera test they conducted. N82 is overhyped because of Xenon! I think the most important feature of N82 is the Xenon and not the 5MP camera! L0L! Best camera phones in the world are not even equipped with xenon - INNOV8 for 8MP; N95 for 5MP. And those camera phones that have it all including xenon and optical zoom turn out to be runners-up only - N82 and G810!
To the unknown person who said that slider phones are more bulky than bar phones, try to compare N82 and N85 side by side, N85 has larger screen encased in a dual slide body yet is smaller and a lot thinner than N82 bar phone with smaller screen! The extra benefits you get from extra media keys of dual slide phones make the whole difference in multimedia consumption compared to bar phones. It seems like N82 and N95 are almost identical right? And N85 and N79 are the exactly same phone in different form factors? Well, not quite, until you start to use them! Dual slide phones are more expensive than bar phones because you pay Nokia for the innovation they have patented on dual slide phones. And don't say dual slide phones are less durable than bar phones. Don't you know that N82 is build with low quality materials and hardware inside and out that is why it's priced relatively low compared to N95? Even the xenon didn't add up to its price. That's why I keep saying N82 is cheap because it is actually cheap! Nokia will only mass market a product that has low quality hardware because its production cost is low.
