had the phone for a little over seven months. i absolutely LOVED the camera. the video quality was amazing. however like a few other people have stated, it froze often for me and often exited out of applications on its own and had trouble reading my SIM. it eventually started deleting random numbers off of my sim card whenever it froze or whenever the battery died. i did however often use multiple applications at once but it should have handled it. plus within two weeks the speaker used for calls started to go out within two weeks of me having the phone... overall, if you dont call often or use multiple apps, and want an absolutely amazing camera... its great. i myself will not be buying another

this Nolkia N 85 is a Cool Phone its Features is very good. I am using this phone from last 4 months. The 5 Mega P. Camera is fast and clearity is very good. The dezine is cool..... But U have to Take much care of it.
It restarts itself for no reason and it can't read my SIM card sometimes.
Well i had da N85 4 a month now & dis is my review...
1.Very Poor processor speed
2.Often gets Stuck (N have 2 restart by removing da battery)
3.If U slighty load da phone,(apps,images,videos or music) da gallery gets very slow
4.Music Speaker volume is very low (but da Quality is good)
5.Camera Options r very limited & all da pics hav a yellowish colour wen taken(Overall a average camera)
6.Phone settings r very limited
7.Has 2 be charged everyday
BUT!! I guess if ur a very patient person U shld be able 2 handle dis phone...
The Phone is NOT the Greatest but its also NOT da worst...(out of all da N series phones itz abt ranked no-5th)
has anyone have tried to download a file from rapidshare(file hosting site) on this phne on wi-fi?? Was that successful.??
N85 is perfect phone for someone who uses only Red and Green key and don't have any other usage of the phone
HAROD ZOLWANA, 18 Sep 2009why this did not come up with 8mgptheres already a comparable phone that has 8mp and that is n86 which is just recetly launched in the market.it has same price
asfaf, 17 Sep 2009it is true that nokia n85 often is restarting?yes its often restarting but i was able to resolve it by removing the battery and putting it back in while the phone is turned on.check also if you already have a full memory coz that might cause the problem as well.
derz no such problems as such of restartin and all......its d best product of nokia as of now.....camera performance is simply superb....no cam phn(5mp)in market can beat n85's clearity....
MY FRIENDS both of them got nokia's n81&n95 sao i decided to by the phone which is diffrent of them they compell me to take n95 but on a review in digital living magnazine and some gadgets gurus info i got n85 ...... nothing bad in the phone but the only thing is the output sound is not good as like other N series for this ma friends commenting me a lot but the other features they even can't stand near to me........ smiply awesome in its design
Very nice phone.
Has all the features.
Im using it for talking and occasional web surfing, plus GPS navigation (10-40 minutes every day). I can go on one battery for 2-2.5 days.
The only problem is power management.You really need to charge it every day, even if the power indicator is showing full charge.
It can show that its full for 2 days and then battery just gone in 2 hours, device switches off.
Also fast charging feature is confusing, you can charge battery very fast to 80% but it will loose charge in 2 hours. You have to wait until its says Fully charged.
aomara, 17 Sep 2009I bought 2 N85 on june 09, one for me and for my wife. this mobile is very sensitive, and need... moreHi, why did you have to pay 30$? If it failed within 2 years it should have been repaired under the warranty without any cost or even replaced for a new one.You should contact Nokia for an explication.
Wich one is better for games N85 or N95? In terms of confort of the d-pad and others buttons. Because I have a N95 and its not so much confortable to play games such GBA (Game Boy)games. Thanks.
asfaf, 17 Sep 2009it is true that nokia n85 often is restarting?it is hanging lot and need to remove battery and some times SIM also and re-start it
