@ J, All I did for the Snapple photo was change the setting from Auto to Closeup on the popup menu. For the bookshelf I just used auto, point and shoot.
Maybe you are not holding the camera still? I don't know, but all of my pictures are coming out GREAT! Now if I could just remember to close the lens cover when I'm done.. I always forget lol..
Wah...eh...your's quite clear..hmm...you just put close up mode?? did u tinker with any other functions?? teach me!!
OMG! Do I spy with my little eye a yellow book on that shelf!?!? I think I do! Bad phone..
@ J, Look at my Snapple photo, how can you say this phone takes bad closeup shots??
I just too a picture...
Yellow? Where yellow? Well, technically the lemons ARE yellow. Terrible phone, showing yellow lemons.. hah!
I don't agree with people saying phone take yellowish photo either u people don't own this phone or you are using "Chiness toy copy of Nokia N82" just stop posting crap and also Nokia uses same CARL ZEISS lenses used by SONY CYBERSHOT digital camera.
i do agree that pictures taken by nokia phones specifically with carl zeiss lens produces yellowish hue
that's what I did when I took close up.but it still isn't very clear.My old phone N93i was still sharper when it came to close up shots.but N82 still beats N93i at background view.
Oh yeah..the flash lives up to it's hype.dark room pix with the flash on looks like some1 turned on the fluorescent lights.
hi peps i just bought my n82 about 4 hrs ago and started enjoying its magnificent features when suddent i noticed sumtin, i was taking pix on a really dark room and wen i switch to my cam i noticed i got 2 freakin dead pixel! is it normal to have this even tho its just out of the factory? well its almost too little to notice but i was wearin eyeglasses and by looking close too cloes i cant bear in ming that i got dead pixel, i guess ill return it for a new replacement..
@ albertchong... Yes it is compatible to view office documents. If you want to edit the documents you would need to purchase and update a new version with edit function. This whole process is done entirely on the phone.
Its the same with Nokia GPS. You would need to subscribe and download the navigation feature. I believe that this is fair.
Nothing in life is free. Why would this be any different? Whats you view on this. Also, note some or most of the Nokia software is subjected to fees. This is due to the fact is 3rd party and not even developed by Nokia themselves. Hell Symbian is even another company.
@ Y'all!! N82 better than all the rest!!IMHO!
@ Jo23... Did you update the firmware? after receiving it? I'm guessing not. I believe you had a really bad experience. How can the warranty be void after 3/4 months!!! Was it pre-owned??? Nokia offer up to 2 years warranty when new... well at least here in Europe. If you had bought it and you weren't satisfied by say within the 4 weeks you can send it back to the retailer, if not! you should have got it repaired from an authorized Nokia retailer. If you didn't send it to an authorized dealer for repair the fault is yours, Not Nokia and hence the voiding of your handset.
I haven't had one crash on my phone and guess what!!! I've had it for 2 months now!! I got one of the first batches here in Sweden. Made from over the Baltic waters in Finland! Your experience is unfortunate but the blame cannot be solely on Nokia.
hi..can any user of N82 tell me that, is this phone compatible with excel and word file. can we edit ?
"The cam is good for like background pix but upclose pix it's not exactly good".
Use the Close-Up mode feature. ;)
Do you realize how many units of cellphones come out of Nokia factories every day? How many satisfied Nokia users are out there globally? Does one, two, three or even one thousand cases of bricked phones, buggy OSes mean Nokia is a such a bad brand?
Frankly from an IT person and a businessman's perspective your views aren't conclusive. It does not mean that if your sister's phone gives up on her it already means that Nokia is such a poor manufacturer. Even in IT there is no such as thing as perfection. Units go over strict QC but it cannot be avoided for some to appear as lemons. From the experience of my very own friends SE phones die by the ratio of 4:5 meaning 4 out of 5 units they have owned either end up dead or defective. I seriously doubt that is the case with Nokia.
Let us not forget that is a user review/opinion thread not a Nokia bashing thread so non-Nokia users and haters should not utilize this thread as if its their very own venue for lashing back at Nokia. N82 users must share both their bad and good experiences here that's all or people can even inquire about its features here.
Again, this is not an ani-Nokia forum. If you hate Nokia so much send them millions of emails everyday but please avoid using this thread as rant thread. Thanks a lot for your cooperation.
I bought a N82 a week ago.The cam is good for like background pix but upclose pix it's not exactly good.music is pretty good too.keypad takes sometime to get used to.
not to offend any nokia fans out there.
i just wanna say to new users of Nokia or SE and samsung users swtching to Nokia fones
"DONT EXPECT A LOT"!! their fone are still hav the same capabilities as ur old fones, dont act like hayeenas hungry for meat "specs" and do things u wanna do, i tell u ther's always a limit.., suddenly u realize after 1mont of usage ur nokia fone break down and thats all ur fault no one to be blame. again i just wanna share my expirience here at home not offending nokia user i my self is a nokia user too
(and not satisfied too..)
Question: Is there an option in this phone (N82) where you could set the Xennon light to a steady ON when taking video or picture?
>story of my sis.
my sis have n73 for four months and when my older sis see the new fone of my young sis she imidiatly bought same fone, they were impressed of the cam. and user capabilities and they just want to shot pictures and texting "period" they dnt knw how 2 install OS or 3rd party applications EVEN using the 3G capabilities nothing!! i told my self what a waste of money...
but after 3 - 4 months of usage!! BOOOM!!! its started to malfunction everything from power "on" to texting,saving pictures and lots of 'em. and they still no applications installed only 20mp3 file in their so called "2gb" of memry and the worst of all Nokia Care "void" the warranty of the phone. we realy dnt knw what happen, the same thing happend 2 my older sis "exactly" the same thing and yet NO! 3rd prty application or what ever things and they realy take care of their things especialy they'r girls...
But knw both of them have move on my older sis swtch to u700 and my young sis with my nokia6101 and both of them are planning to sue Nokia bout their products and the warranty void they make on their fones...
I have the ericsson production, I still can call even the barr almost empty.
this is a fantastic phone i noticed and i seeing this will become much nearer in PC based applications, not as 3G phone but it includes the expanded entertainment media too, this device may come at very handy and compact
@Nokia recycler (stuxxx ELEPHANT)
u r SE owner than u might be knowing while playing high birates song on any SE phone they got stuck some time making sound gurr.... This never happend with my any Nokia some time in SE phones fails to save photo even Though camera is active this never happen with Nokia S40v3/5 also you cant make phone phone call when singnal bar is less than 3 where as Nokia attempts phone call even at 1 bar.
If u r Samsung or Moto fan than i think there is no need for comparison as every one knows about there poor battery, music, there useless UI etc.
