hi.. is it true that the keypad of n82 starts to creak after a month of used?
I have been using the N82 for almost 2 weeks now, love it to bits. Here are just my 2 cents worth...
* N82 vs N95 *
For those who plans to buy between the N82 or N95, consider the earphones placement. N95 is definitely not a wise choice as it's earphone's jack is at the side. N95 has a slightly bigger screen, and has dedicated music keys. Those those could be advantageous, it doesn't matter to me at all. Since I'm an audiophile, I'd like to put my phone in my pocket, and wouldn't want my pants to break the earphone's jack.
* N82 vs N81 *
You can't compare N82 to N81 as N81 is more of a gaming phone. N82's camera quality is superb! Easily beats the N95/any SE/LG/Samsung camera phones.
* Audio quality *
I was impressed by the acoustics of the N82, when I plugged in my Creative EP-630 (bought for S$40). The audio clarity was superb, even my iPod Touch couldn't handle. Crispy clear treble/deep bass are just what I look in the audio. If you want the best audio quality, pair it with a noise-isolation earphones, you'll immediately fall in love with it.
* Picture Quality *
I used F480, K850i, and LG Viewty (all of these are 5MP camera), non of those can give me the best image quality I dream of. To me, the Xenon flash of Viewty has washed out images, and F480 has a lot of white balance issues. My K850i didn't give as much impression as I thought it would, I sold it after 2 days of use. Although the N82 does not have Panorama capabilities, you can use a symbian application to do that. For new N82 sets, it comes with Panoman pre-installed for your panorama needs. With the lense cover, you'll be sure your lense are free from dust/fingerprints/dirt etc.
* Video quality *
When I got my hands on the N82, first thing I tried was the video. I could capture videos at 640x480 resolution, with AAC (mono only) audio quality. Now you can record all your videos at the highest possible quality! With 2 GB of memory card, you can record up to 2 hours worth of video. Plus with TV-out function, you can share all those cool videos you've taken and plug it into the big screen. Definitely worth something to look out for.
* Performance/Compatibility/Expansion *
If you're adventurous, you'd definitely look for a Symbian OS for your mobile. Since my first Symbian phone, the N-gage Classic, I have a lot of faith in Symbian, as a whole. And now Symbian changed my whole life. I have countless of applications, games, tools, etc, and all those are possible with Symbian. The Symbian community is also growing rapidly, you can basically find anything you need. For all those non-symbian phones (e.g. F480, K850i, Viewty), I have limited functions to what I can do with the phone. You want the best out of the best, I can greatly assure you the N82 is a choice you will never regret. Some people believed that Symbian are laggy or hangs frequently, I personally don't think so. I had my memory maxed out, but I still don't experience lagginess or hangs. It depends on users, and stuffs you put in. If you put in a buggy application, chances are, those are the things that contribute to your performance.
* Keypads *
Honestly, I find no problem with the keypads. It took me 2 days to get used to the layout, even though it's small (I have fat fingers!). I haven't hit a messaging typo in a few days, so I have to say the keypad are nicely spaced out and have great response.
* Overall *
I wouldn't say you should take my word. All I'm saying is, get something you need. For me, this is the best all-in-one device, feature packed, and value-for-money. You can't get anything better than this in the market currently. The N85/N79 could be the replacement in the future, but for now, I'm willing to stick my bet on the N82. It's a choice I never regret.
Good luck, and all the best in choosing!
Remember, ONLY GET WHAT YOU NEED. I have all I needed already. :)

I have a JABRA BT HEADPH0NE g0t it for m0re than $400 early last year...... moreboss..$400...mean rs18000....plus the cost of sony phone rs10000...total is 28000...
what i want to say is in much less we can get good music combination with creative zen4gb at 5500-5000 and a creative ep 50,ep220,ep240 at below 800 so at a total cost of ard rs6000-6500 we have a superb sound machine with 4 gb capacity and excellent video plyer...and just buy a good nokia phone at 5000 for calling...
is n't a big saving ?
AS sir...this plan is for lesser mortals like me...for well endowed apple iphone at 31000 is there....
i am a n82 user for 2 months already. but i'm not content with it. maybe this phone is not what i really need. i'm a music freak. i had n81 before, great music phone. but i also want the features of n95. n82 is somewhat n95 in bar form but no musical elements into it, not able to satisfy my music needs. i think n85 is the perfect phone for me. a music and gaming phone like n81, with the extra features of n82/n95.
I dont get it either to be honest, i was a big fan of Old Sony Ericsson Phones and when i get my hands on K850i 2 months later its Dead totally..
A-Shamed really at Sony Ericsson
So its time to move back to Nokia
I Am in the same position as you
i hope to get an N82
im moving from a K850i(which died totally which a firmware bug called BROD(Blue Ring Of Death)
N79 looks the same as N82 and has similar features
and then you people say SE Phones are all the same!
SE Phones are all different to one and another there Unique
and im no SE Fanboy yes i own SE and i have 2 Nokia's
Srodod, 24 Aug 2008Can N82 be your Main Music Player?? so is the Quality good through earphones? or do I HAVE ... moreNo need to change the earphone on this phone because the sound quality of this phone thru earphone is VERY GOOD!!! hope that this will help you... i am using my phone everyday to play music & i love it...
