regarding the camera, the LG KF750 Secret takes way better pictures, i didn't expect it either!
take a look at the review, now that's how noise reduction should be done! contrary to gsmarena's opinion, the noise reduction on LG KF750 Secret is very well implemented, no jpeg artifacts are visible as a result of noise reduction unlike those done on N82.
got my N82 black a couple of days ago.. i've been really thinking quite a lot whether to buy this phone or not since i sold my k850i.. but when i got the phone and started shooting some pics, it was far better than that of my previous k850i.. images are well saturated (day or night).. nice one nokia!

when I use this phone normally (no wifi,no music,no game) just using camera and messanging and mobile phone it takes only two days long.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hi jon.. if u want a better camera choose the N82 if u want a phone with overall better functionality get the G900. hope this helps you
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970N82 is a good device to get. Its one of the best Nseries device better than N95 and cheaper dan n95. the camera is the biggest advantage. in 5 Megapixel camera battle N82 will win anytime due to its amazing colour capture and the flash at night gets everything thus making it far better than all sony Ericsson Cybershot phones. G900 wont be able to stand against N82. btw G900 uses same hardware as P1i n nothing has changed. even the P1i dual LED was not good enough imagine the G900 normal 5 MEga Pixel camera it aint even Cybershot but does have image stabiliser.
N82 has the best battery life compared to other nokia devices such as N95. the battery of n82 is even better than N96 which uses same battery as N95 lol...
but however i bought off ebay a 13050mah battery and i can say my n82 last 3.5 days or 4 days if i dont use wifi to much...
umair.a.s, 05 Jun 2008and also the n78 doesn't have memory expnsion upto 8gb while the n82 has that option.i am sorry to say umair but n78 do have memory expansion.. its running on the latest FP2 software and can easily take upto 32GB microSD card when its released soon. but im guessing that n82 will also be able to take that much hopefully..
n78 is definitely for music lovers.. 24hr is what nokia estimates but in reality the reviwers are getting 22hours of continous music playback in one charge which is double that in n82 or n95 or any other phone in the league or above the league.
n78 doesnt have 5mp or xenon but it does have 3.2 with normal flash and also its carl zeus which cannot be termed bad right?
so i hope u like n78 now but offcourse camera lovers pls stay with n82 even if u have to sacrifice the dimmer screen and battery.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hey casey!!!
there is no comparison between n95 and n82.. n82 obviously is the better one in all areas. there is no doubt about that.. faster more ram more internal better accelerometer thats auto rotation xenon flash good battery a-gps etc.. n95 has a little bigger screen but is negligible..
the problem is when comparing n82 with the n95 8gb version or the n78.. each of which is superior in different areas...
You seem to have solved everyones problem. Good job. Rock on.
anjath, 02 Jun 2008hi all this is for everyone wanting to know of the diff between n82 and the black version..... moreand also the n78 doesn't have memory expnsion upto 8gb while the n82 has that option.
exavantz, 02 Jun 2008sound & louder go for n81, but for the best nokia phone go for n82...i wont sacrifice gps,camera,tv out and 128 mb ram and xenon flsh just for better sound and considering the n82's sound it isn't really poor,its just fine ,it has the same audio hardware as the n95 8gb.
GUNDAM, 03 Jun 2008What is the difference between the n81 and n82 other than the sound quality and the camera . p... morethere is a monumental difference between the two symbian phones.n81 has got a camera of just 2.0 millin pixels while n82 has a camera censor of 5.0 megapixels.then tha n82 has 128mb ram and is faster ,the n81 only has 96 MB ram.the n81 has only 12mb user memory,while n82 has 100 mb dynamic memory.the n81 also lacks gps and tv out.and there isn't a huge price differnece between the two devices and they can almost be considered in the same price range and n82 is way better than the n81 or n81 8gb and isn't even much expensive than these devices.
Stephen Angelo, 03 Jun 2008I have a black one and I don't experience the cracks during full volume playing with the louds... moreall you have have to do is add an 8gb microsd and you can store more data in your n82 than the n95 8gb.
Dude, 04 Jun 2008If you have a black N82 with a 8GB MicroSD card in it what´s the difference with it and the N9... morethe screen distinction isn't really great, just around 10mm.and the camera of the n82 is undoubtedly better.and the camera processing speed is also faster unlike the n95 in which you take a picture and sleep waiting.nokia's typical startup time is only 13 seconds ,low light focusing time is only 2 seconds.in the n95 or n73 you cant shoot a picture in less than 3~4 seconds.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970you can go for the n82 in my pesonal opinion.it has the xenon flash and better camera than the n95 and it is certainly also faster.n82 is the next big thing.
i think this is a phenomenal and cosmic handset by nokia.just add an 8gb microsd and there is not much which you're gonna miss by not getting the n95 8gb.and also this device's processing speed is way faster than the old n95 8gb,specially the camera focusing,shooting and photo saving speed.believe me this handset almost never hangs.its also got the xenon flash which the n95 8gb lacks moreover its also the best cameraphone of 2008!i foecast that the n82 will prove to be the next n-series best seller.besides its also atleast 20% cheaper than the n95 8gb.the cons of the n82 cannot obviosuly be neglected as well which include its "not so intuitive" and "easy to use"keypad,no usb charging and its overall design and appearance is really indifferent,simple yet elegant and lastly,its 2.4" display which has also been questioned about a lot,that why a device with this magnitude of impressive features should've a screensize this mediocre that is 36*48 mm.but according to my personal dogma,n73,a bestseller of the nseries too did have a screen size of just 2.4inches and not forgetting the famous n93i,it also has a display of the same size.i mean to say that it makes watching videos or surfing the net on a 2.8 or 3 inches more enjoyable and delightful than a 2.4 inch screen but screen size isn't really everything,especially when you have tv out.there is hardly any rival of the n82 in the same price range,there is for example samsung g810 but its way too expensive.the n82 has it all,music,video,photography,wi-fi and tv out and not forgetting the GPS with A-GPS.and verily the camera is great and comparing it with the k850,n95 8gb,viewty,g800 we can easily say that its the best.this device can rightfully be called as n73's successor.in this price range it is difficult that a device with same features can be found,so i will finally infer saying that n82 has more pros than cons and it can surely take place of an n95 8gb infact it can surly do better thant that!
i just bought this phone today..to simplified after a day of usage,i'm completely satisfied with this phone..this phone is perfect,didn't have any problems or what-so-ever..by the way,i'm using my n82 right now to post this comment :) NOKIA ROCKS!
i just bought it today. the phone is great. better than i expected. the keys arent bad at all and the camera is great! good job nokia!
