They have clearly said that it has organic materiels. It has only limited lifetime. And the intrusion of water can damage or destroy the organic materiels.
Then phone is very slow. The processing speed of nokia n82, n95 and n95 8gb is dual 332 mhz. Where as n85's processor is not dual. It's only single 369 mhz. Ram memory is 74mb and rom memory is 78mb where as all the other models have 128mb and 256 mb respectivly. So it's not an upgrade from those models. It's a downgrade. :p
To all n85 users and buyers.
I'm sure nokia will make you to think for another upgrade very soon. That's marketing technique. :d

this will be the most perfect phone if it had massive 16GB harddrive & the media keys as in the original N81 design...
but I appreciate nokia to improve the N81 gaming phone

If you want the N85 now then I'd suggest you buy it now. Or, wait a few months for the bugs to be fixed and maybe the price will drop a little.
Having had my new N85 3 days, I must have had the friday afternoon model, if I make a call from the contact list then the phone says "connection error" if I play a video then the phone resets itself.
The loudspeaker is poor and the buttons very easy to mistype, having just part exchanged my 6220 classic, I feel that I have made an expensive mistake.....
What's really the difference between this and the N82? It looks a bit different and it has some more features like the wheel thing. But honestly, I don't see much major innovation in order to make me change my phone.

mindzap, 10 Nov 2008its a province my dear.. not a country =)
but we have aa nokia country basically. nokia owns ... morehaha my bad, cagayan de oro is a city.. im referring philippines as a nokia country.
im not really concern with the camera of this phone, yes i hav nokia n82, the best camera phone ever, but i found out that im not using camera that much.
regarding the sound, in my n82, if its use in music, not that loud but its loud in call and text tones, i think n85 will also works same way.. anyways reviews says its better than n82 in ds department, so its not really a concern
im buying ds phon because of the form factor, OLED and FP2 but im not giving up my n82, i will use both phone dpending on the occasion.
Will the OLED screen get damaged if you speak with the phone under rain for example? And what happens if you drop the phone to the ground?

Anyone in the U.k wanting the N85 just go onto www.mobilesforeveryone.com an you will see a few contracts for the N85,the N85 is a lot better in the build an screen but might not be on the camera on the N96,i got my N85 with a 8gb memory card inside it an it worked fast,just wished the camera an speakers would have been better an i would have kept it but the N95 8gb is alot better in these parts,the N85 is not very heavy at all,just go onto Nokiablog an they always show you different subjects reguarding the N85 to help you see if its worth getting an thats why i sent mine back looking a the Hallowen photos taken by the N85

I'm going to buy this phone tomorrow. My only concern is its OLED screen. I'm sure its lifetime will be sufficient enough (more than 2 years). But I've read somewhere that if you drop the phone to the ground accidentally, its screen might stop working, because OLED screen is made up from organic materials.
Can anyone who owns this phone answer my question please? Did you drop the phone accidentally to the ground and did something happen to the screen?
hey! did they release the n85 in the UAE?
i saw this phone turned on in a souk[bazaar] and the shop owner said it cost 2000 AED! i thought it's supposed to go over 2300 AED...
please reply..ty ^^v
I've been trying to decide between this and the Nokia 5800 Xpress. While the 5800 will be revolutionary at it's price point, I think I'm leaning toward the N85 at the moment.
Having a touch screen isn't really that important to me: I can imagine it being a finger print magnet really. And, having a clean, smudge-free phone is more important to me than the gimmick of being able to navigate by touch. Also, I want a better camera than the 5800 has. However, the 5800 Xpress does have a larger, higher resolution screen than the N85.
Anyone care to comment?
Very heavy and very boring looks. N79 far better and cheaper, or get LG Renoir
this not tarz or type new nokia n85 ................very like n81 ? also n81 8gb also like n96 ? i am sorry i do not love this phone.............now know n85 full copy in the n81
Is the battery comparable to Sony ericsson? or is it still too weak?
