There is a rumour going around the web about a new firmware for N82. http://cellpassion.mobi/2008/01/16/nokia-n82-firmware-upgrade-wont-damage-installed-apps.aspx
It addresses stablity issues. For those who are bashing symbian... Symbian is a completely different company to Nokia. My school mate is working there in the London. Nokia and Symbian are strategic alliances regarding Symbian OS phone for Nokia.
@ shanebrain... to keep from you battery from dying early. Best thing is to turn off power hungy apps... like WiFi scanning, bluetooth, if you don't have 3G network turn that off too. This is will help. I'm guessing you are still in the honeymoon period with your phone. So I'm also guessing its pretty difficult to put the thing down at this moment.
I managed to get about 2.5 days 3 max on minimum resources.
freak thanx man!!!then i cant really find any flaws!!!:D this fone brilliant:D
as always batt life is a little weak!!!mines new and goes for 2 days including fone calls and playing a bit of games havnt tried it with music yet but im guessing 1 n half days??
@ msa... EDGE is Enhanced Data Rates for GSM. Basically this determines the data transfer rate of GSM type networks. This is actually a superset to GPRS which lower transfer rate. Its like comparing a supercar with it previous model.
Or in Wifi: 802.11g with 802.11n (WiMAX)
for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enhanced_Data_Rates_for_GSM_Evolution
Very good phone but with some major flaws:
-It is HUGE. How people can love its size is beyond me. Even bigger than N95.
-The loudspeaker sound is far too SOFT. I miss many calls when the phone is my pocket
had this phone now one week and must say very impressed just one question when viewing web pages and i wish to download to real player..nothing just says connecting am i missing something.any advice thanks in advance
@ Shanebrain.... and to all N82'ers. The copy paste funtion is the # button... you have to hold it and then mark to the area to want to copy and then you will have a option to copy or paste....
Try it!!! it works just as well!!!
somebody plz help
this is just a general enquiry and not related to the n82, i came on here cos i know theres ppl on here who know there s**t
does not having EDGE on a mobile phone really cause a disadvantage? what dif does EDGE make? does it make the pnone faster or something?
N82 Black is cool but i have a question It will be available in Feb 15 right?it will be available in the Philippines too on feb 15?tnx
not to be rude kabayan, you'd get the most out of any forum if you go ahead and do a little read-back.and lez be considerate of other bloggers as well, post in english.
anywayz, n82 has got cool bass boost and treble effect, stereo widenning, and configurable EQ settings, not deafening but doesn't hurt your ears as well. sounds great for me...
ma' mann, cool to see Pinoys got the same interests here. all Passionate about mobiles, and of course - n82! rock on!
great link bro...thanks...everyone - check out the link provided by the Pious one, hehehe - it'll make a monster out o' ur snapper! whooaa!!!
Keepn' the balance!
kinda missin' your point-blank in-yah-face Ops here ma' man. busy with some things huh?!
doncha worry 'bout heretics, man. we know who we are.
indeed somthin dont sound right bro! n958gb and n82 crashin',hmmmm, suspiciously mind-boggling, wat'cha installed in them bro, cable tv? long as you're happy with your p1i, live with it. but u gotta admit, P1i also has its own stories of woes....
getting shot at by an n82 in a totally dark room gives u:
-a clear tru 5mp photo without any darkening effect on any square of the pic, colors are alive and very well rendered - not over exposed or under compensated, without even tinkering with the cam settings, just point and shoot, guaranteed well-taken photos each and everytime. (darn! i did sound like a shoppng network ad!)
-5 seconds of total darkness, all u need to squint tah recover from the afterburn, n82's xenon flash housing is twice the size of k850i's, twice the brightness...i think u can even use it to temporarily blind some blokes.hehehe
nice try! u sure u were using an n82?! right about mem capacity, and im as baffled as u are why the heck it would hang given those facts with its mem capacity...hmmmmm...
>Shayn and Roger...wazzzuuppp little fellars...somethin aint right with ur combo... u two...
anywayz...quit watchin too much ads on TV, their toxic and addictive, makez yah whinerz for nothing....
Check this out!!!
where in the world are u gona get a fone with a built in flash, 5 mp cam,loads of games n mp3 player this good?
ive always used nokia first 6110,then 6600 then n70, n80 and now n82...in all honesty to nokia,i do find the keys to be a little annoying without the copy n paste one which i found a bit useful,i also find the fone to be a tad long??like the n73:S...how bout the n82slide???:D that wud nice?a shorter version of the n82 but can slide out??
otherwise i think nokias next move shud be towards the touch screens...not too much coz ppl like pressing buttons but sum functions...maybe menu or hangup n call buttons...i did find the iphone to be very impressive even tho nokia still better overall...if nokia starts adding towards that??then iphone,SE,or any other fone have no chance...its tough for nokia tho to make there fones a bit thinner???coz i know they have tons of functions...howcome SE fans always talk about wat nokia doesnt have?
Kabayan! your question has been asked and answered a lot of times already. Just be patient to search for it at the previous posts. Good Luck!
1 question-which phone has the best xenon flash for night shoot-out ?nokia n82 se k850
samsung g800 or lg viewty ?anybody .
@Rakib...the nokias can rewind an fast forward, you have to press and hold the switchin track button...its not higher grade!!and u can do name search...duno where u got ur facts from but the OS for series 60 nokias are great...its application minimization is excellent an far supperior to the SE...........
now look man you got a rare case, because N95 8gb and N82 are both very stable and fast too.
If you think you can compare A200 with Mac OS X,Symbian and Windows mobile then its realy unfair for A200.
A200 is just a java coded software that can run j2me application.
All the other Os that you mentioned ard full capable OS.They can run a vast array of software's and emulator applications.Accept windows os the symbian and mac os x can even control cpu clocking(not yet out to the normal user).
I have the latest N95 8GB and N82. I also have the K850. I sold both my n series phones because i got fed up of the os crashing all the time due to messaging issues. When is nokia gonna come up with a reliable os?? The A200 is not as powerful but it is very steady and stable. Periodic sw updates further enhances it.
Symbian OS = Windows = Unreliable
A100/A200/UIQ = MAC OS X = Robust & Superior
It is a shame someone used your nickname here damn that user!
I have been using Nokia S60 Symbian phones for a very very long time and I have noticed that Symbian phones hang due to the 3rd party apps. Trust me its not the phone's OS alone but the apps installed in it.
