be careful if you are considering in buying this phone. i've had this phone since december and the earpiece just started going bad last week. the volume severely fades in and out on every phone call. i Googled it and went on Nokias support forum, and a lot of people are having the same issue. Some people have problems with the mic. I sent my phone in today to Nokia repair under warranty...i miss it already and am using my K850i for now until my N85 returns. what a bummer.
After 3 weeks like this more than my n82..fine screen,good batt,fast in performance,tiny plus packed to the hilt with software and sexy
Hi have this mobile since month, all its features are owsome.

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2009n85 is perrrfect for everyone iphone who?niceee
Guys i used so many phones
N95 , N96 , N76 , N73 , E71
& the latest 5800 Express music
But among these models
my fav is N85
build quality,Stylish,fast,Best Music phone from the rest...
but i am not much satisfied with the navi wheel control its good but sometimes annoying
this feature can be turned off/on whatever..
i own this phone for 2 months
i am much impressed with this model
everyone is talking about the processor being slow and that the N95 8gb is a lot faster,if we look at it by processor the double one if faster of course,but the newer version of symbian 9.3 is also faster,compare windows 2000 and Windows Vista!!!Think about it!!N85 is the best phone among all nokia devices so far!!
M.Manjunath, 25 Feb 2009Thanks, Heard that the only drawback of N85 is its camera (picture taking) quality. Also ... moreDo not forget that future software updates fix things,,the camera is good from reports its typical nokia with a higher colour tone (which all nokias have)and an aggressive noise redution algorithm which is causing it to be overbricht and very sharp photos..I get the impression the n86 is just a "ME TOO PRODUCT" because nokia wanted to concentrate at the 5mp mark but had to bring out an 8mp to just cause the fone market/people says so..If anyone is highly interested in a good camera the samsung innov8 is tops for me else its a digicam ...

But by the time N86 8MP hits the shelves, N85 will be much cheaper then and it's really worth it. The decision is yours to make.

Heard that the only drawback of N85 is its camera (picture taking) quality.
Also do i need to wait for N86.Heard that it is an upgraded version of N85 with 8MP camera , With the quality of camera being improved to great extent.
Heard that this is the formula for N86.....
Formula -> upgrade(N85) - Faults(N85) + 8MP camera

i think its same person asking about this n85 or 95 debate and he should stop flooding the walls
n85 is mor euser friendly,better battery life,feels nicer to use and faster
n85 is best
I am planning to buy a cell phone which is good @ Audio,Camera and also games.I am very confused with N95-8GB and N85.Also have got few suggestions on N79 being worth more than N85.Can anyone please help me out in this. Should i wait till N86 is released or just go ahead with N85. Please reply :D
does this phone come with any other color besides copper? does it come in white??
Also xperia is good powerfull fone,,i just do not like touchscreen or else would have got 5800 express or n97..Even innov8 i have is superb in every way it just lacks nokias touch,,i.e. n-gage,,ovi,,maps,,voice synthesiser,,nokia downloads catalogue and maybe later i-player..I have got i-player on innov8 but not got it working as i need settings..This n85 will have to be my last fone for a while till funds grow but with it being back to nokia i feel at home with it and its got everything i want..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i was going to sell it to www.cex.com but cannot get thru to them,,even money expert martin lewis has knocked them off his places to sell/recycle mobile phones..They would give me £287 for it boxed as new which i keep all my fones in that condition and have dealt with them for 2 years or more..
