As a N85 owner, i think the disadvantages of N85 are wobbly slider and navi wheel not fucntion properly.
The camera shuttle speed is fast, call, voice and loudspeaker is above average. The OLED screen is marvellous. Overall the systems is fast and no lagging for my N85. I bought it from Singapore $725 singapore dollars with everything in the retail box. N85 is slimmer and easy to carry if compare with N95,N95 8GB and N96. The output of music is average if compare with N73ME since it is not a music dedicated phone. Playing music through headphone is great, but not Nokia headsets. File transfer from phone to pc or pc to phone is fast. I strongly recommended this phone, the disadvantages are whobbly slider and navi wheel. Hope my reveiew might help ^^

If thats the case, i wil definitely be paying attention. Its quite obvious an n-series with crazy multimedia power is on its way, but i want to see what other suprises they're gonna give us. (e-series or xpressmusic shockers).
This Week we will see what Nokias going to release for 2009 at Barcelona on Tuesday an can"t wait to see what phones are being released by Nokia,an hope they show alot of improvements as the N96 an N85 might look good phones but some features on the phones let them down an will we see there first 8 mega-pixel camera mobile an just hope its not a brick like the N93 was,i bet they gone crazy on touch screens mobiles as they"ve been trailing the others up till now ,so can"t wait for Tuesday or this week for there new mobiles
Can someone who ownes an N85 please comment on the call volume of both the standard and speakerphone speakers. I currently have a Treo 650 and the volume was always way too low.
Drive a convertible and need a loud speaker.
This is an absolutely shit phone. Nothing works. It comes with two cables for charging, one cable works fine, the other one only works when connected to a computer, but not with the included power supply. The GPS does not work at all, at least it never can connect to more than 1 satellite, which is not enough to find the position. It tells me GPS works poorly when I'm inside. But I am outside under blue sky, without any try or house anywhere near. The stupid navigation touch ring is just doing what it wants, luckily can be switched off. All the plastic makes strange sounds from 1st day of use...
Don't buy it, you will regret.
Hey I am confused about which one I should buy:
5800 Xpress Music
And also they haven't specified the RAM for both the N85 & N79... Any ideas??

Am i wrong ? these new nseries are just like toys in building quality ! what is wrong whit nokia ?!
I want one of these but I'm waiting for the version with Xenon Flash and 8 or 16 GB of memory from the Nokia Roadmap.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2008a lot of frustrated N95 8GB owners are posting their comments , but the truth is the N85 is th... moreI've owned both the N95 and the N85...the N85 is terrible. The casing get's lose very fast. The first n85 I bought didn't turn on. The second n85 I bought had a no sound coming out of bottom speaker.
The N85's naviwheel has terrible feedback and response.
The D-Pad area control and navigation is worst than N95.
The only reason to get this phone:
The screen type, the looks, and the camera lens and flash.
The accelerometer screen rotation is terrible, there are only two rotations and when you are on the bed, the screen does not rotate to the right orientation. But gravity screen rotation for all devices suck anyway.
I would like to know one thing. What is FM transmitter. and what is the use of it?. Anybody Please kindly answer my question.
i think nokia n85 is better than nokia n95 & n958gb
in n85 you feel something new and rich.
the SCREEN of n85 is glade to see.
every color show his identy and reality.
but i mis. 2.8 inch screen, with great OLED.
I just bought my Nokia N85. It appears to be a great phone BUT... I keeps rebooting with no reason many times in a single day. If you want to buy this phone, check Nokia Discussions at http://discussions.nokiausa.com/discussions/ and make a search with N85 reboot. There are more than 140 messages all reporting the same problem. It reboots during internet search, game play, while synchronising etc. No response from Nokia.
