I own a N85 for about 6 months.
My opinion: If this was my first Nokia it would be the last one I ever buy.
Since day 2 there were many scratches on the keyboard, which I dislike on a phone that cost me 450 euro and is labeled as a High End phone.
Nokia Care repaired this twice but the problem kept returning.
Living with that suddenly there was a large crack under the navigationbutton.
Visited the Care Point once again, they wouldn't repair this. 'Please go somewhere else or pay for the repair'.
This is unacceptable and I think not one costumer would like to be treated like that. But I went to another store and they took my phone for repair.
They looked into some service bulletins and normally the store where I bought the N85 should have repaired my phone for free.
As I said, I own my phone for 6 months but I could use it only for maximum 4 months.
This is not what I expect from an N series phone. For now I use my simple 1661, knowing it won't fail me.
i already have n85, i like it. but is restarts when chrging and playind video. what could be the problem.
but camera cant challeng with moto zn5
i use they for 2week togetherand wana say zn5 is very fast great mp3 player and awsome camera
but n85 have good gps and dacument viewer
n85 Camera is worse than others Nseries phone.the sound is not great..i just use it for 3months then i sold it coz so bored with its function.better buy n95 8gb or n82.

PanosAlp, 30 Sep 2009Craphone. Extremely s-l-o-w, even when all applications are off. Tons of bugs and lags, no mat... moreThe reason is slow is because the memory card might be faulty or it needs a format. Backup everything on memory card to your computer and format it. You can also try and take out the memory card in order to see if it's still slow. Mine was super fast when I took it out, so I figured it was the card's problem and fixed it.
Also, newest firmware is v30 now in case you don't have it yet.

all i can say the phone is not perfect but it is a very good phone. if you wont a perfect phone go search another phone
I bought this model 3 days before posting this . I am a graphic designer and the daylight camera pics are commendable when import to photoshop :) . The Dual flash is also a plus. Music performance is average when compared to my previous xpress music, :( A slight muffling when plays through loudspeaker with some songs. The Xpress music was a king on this side. The 3D sound effect is impressive but i prefer play it max in 70% volume. The OLED display is awesome. What i hate :( is the brand new nokia hanged two times in the 3rd day. Did Anybody have the same problem? In my opinion it looks like a good package but need some reliability that we expect from nokia.
Dear N85 users, Please share me your experiences, i will update mine later.
The other day I got to play around a little at the shop with the black version and it didn't lag at all. One thing is that I didn't see much of a difference between the screen with OLED, maybe I need to hold it next to another phone??
I didn't, however, get to check out the camera... anybody have a link to pictures taken with the NAM version? I need to check how good the pics come out in the day and outdoors, and if possible, in a restaurant or something with similar light conditions? I'm undecided between this and the SE C905.
Craphone. Extremely s-l-o-w, even when all applications are off. Tons of bugs and lags, no matter the software updates. Epic fail on media player and GPS apps, worst phone I ever had.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009In one word Superb, twice more than N95 8GBn85 sucks.camera clarity is worse than n82,6220c,n86,innov8,omnia hd,jet,lg viewty smart,kc780,renoir,c905,pixon,idou'satio,aino,pixon12, and worse than my nokia n73
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Go for the Nokia n86 8mp. It is alot better. Don't get the 5800,it's not nice at all! I had one, and it sucks!
I agree,the design is not so good and hangs a lot when there is lots of files
N85 Lagger..!I rather go to 6710 navigator for a faster processor with the same price
