I recently bought the phone, and of course I was hesitating a bit because of the size and battery shortage i read about. however after using it for a few weeks, i'm really happy with it. I had many phones before, and to be honest the first time I feel that it is a very solid phone, with proper syncronization software package, good camera, great handling and nice feel in my hand. The size do not matter anymore, in fact I started to love this brick very much (wierd!). The call quaility is great as well, a perfect speaker phone. Sits nicely on the desk. So if you are a techgizmo like me I can recommend this phone to you. Lifeblog is a great software too, so be sure to download it (free w N90).
Is it true tat n90's next firmware can improve e cam quality? In terms of both still fotos n video though e video is at high end now? Is there any chances of improving e video 15fps to -> 30fps as tat found in W900i?
it has tempting features... 2 mp camera, flash etc.. but "still" expensive.. it's a great phone but a little too big.. but if i get the chance to buy it, i won't hesitate..
Why you keep saying this phone is so bad.
It's pricey, I know, but it is for sure far above the average.
For the moment it has the best screen, and the best camera, even if the photo algorithm can still be improved (just wait till the next firmware), it is Symbian s60 too and I think it also looks very nice (so moving and swivelling).
If you have small pockets and if you can't hear sounds it's only a problem of yours.
P.S. And please don't say it is slow, as it takes only half a second more than N70 and performs 4 times the graphical work.
I bought the N90 about 1 week ago, and i have noticed that the photos that i have taken end up with a purple tinge...just like the photos in the N90 vs W800 page...great video though. PS the operating system is a bit slow, reacts about 1 sec after a button press...and just a huge gripe: NOKIA, WHERES THE VIBRATION U TWATS? peace
I've got an N90 and the operation system is not slow. The pictures look great and the phone is not as big as some people make out.
This fone may look descent, but i must say that it does not make-up for the fact that it is 178GRAMS, heavier than any other Nokia fone (or any other brands that i know of), its the same size as a PDA, possibly even bigger...+ just to cap that off: its got a very s-l-o-w operation, the pictures tend to come out slightly purple and there is NO VIBRATION! AVOID THE N90 IF U CAN
Looks a stunning phone, Nokia producing the kind of excellence that we come to expect from them, but NO vibration? That means the deaf community are excluded en masse - and those who keep the phone on silent at work and use vibration to tell when a new sms has arrived. Shame on you Nokia!
I still dont understand why the phone doesnt have vibration. The camera is nice but should be improved on newer models.
Hi i just called up nokia, because i have read a few reveiew about the phone having a slow operation, they said that is impossible because the phone is one of the latest and fitted in the the latest and best products.
Is it true it takes time?
Gsmarena writes the standby time claimed by the manufacturer.
No phone on the market usually performs the time the manufacturer claims.
However I have this phone and I can say that if you leave it in standby mode the battery can last even 4 days.
With a medium use the time is reduced to only two days.
I know that 2 screens should need more power than one, but in standby mode the active screen is only the small one, so the battery can last enough for this phone.
Also the newer technology used allows higher power savings.
I'm just wondering why GSMarena says that N90 can last for 290 hours stanby time when you guys keep on complaining that the battery doesnt last long so does it mean the information about the battery life here by GSMarena is not true or you guys are just trying to bad-talk the N90? No offence.. Just wondering..
Just bought one recently. Fantastic phone cum camera if you have little ones at home. You can easily capture those fantastic moments when you out with them. Two set backs is that the battery don't last that long when you have plenty of calls and secondly it is a bit too bulky.
Forgetting the miniscule size difference why have they only put a battery in it with less power(ma)than my old monoscreen phone which only talks an txts.I know technology is better but the bigger battery hmmm nokia are not getting it in balance at all.IF you build a bigger car you need a bigger engine & once before a problem occured where nokias batt could not cope with dowloading off internet & the solution was to only d/load when charger is plugged in.i am using nokia 6680 but my p900 lasts under heavy strain but uses a 1260 lithium polymer battery!!
Too expensive... Not a practcal choice... Nokia phones price value can be easily depreciated...
