The best audio playback ever on any Cell phone. Got the 8GB version even its been almost a year since it was launched. Im amazed by the sound qualiyy! Detailed mids and highs with rich bass when I connected to Full Size headphones. Its one of the loudest sound output among all the cellphones available. I bought its becoz of the
integrated 3.5m jack first and I didnt know I got the best sound quality until I plugged in my Sennheiser set. It has enougg power to drive even the AKG k750 full size headset but the sound when listen carefully in a quiet environment may reveal a little noise in the background. I prefer the sound over the Sony Ericsson Walkman phones but Ipod or Iriver including Cowon products and Creative sound cleaner.
File transfer rate is slow to fill up its 8GB memory but I'm fine with that.
Camera is better than my old 3250 camera but still lacks autofocus. I xchanged this with the Nokia N73 just because of its 3.5 mm jack as this jack means so much to me. N73 camera was one the best 3.2MP camera but I dont miss its audio quality at all... A worthy upgrade, after all as I go after the music.
Yeah baby, announced 2005, so I forgive the screen and the bulkyness. It is the best music phone. Has best audio quality through headphones.
BTW: N81 is worse slightly in some cases of audio quality to N91.
N82 has better audio than N81.
When the true successor will be unleashed????
Dis phone was announced way back 2005,earlier dan 3250 & N80.3250 & N80 were announced later but released earlier.N91's market release took more dan 1 year to happen.It's d 1st S60 3rd edition phone & d 1st S60 w/ WiFi (although not all N91s have WiFi).& it's the first mobile phone equipped w/ a hard drive.N95 now has 8GB flash drive & everything,but N95 is released just now & not in 2005.
Why you people shouting against n91?,for god sake stop blemming this baby.
n91 8gb rulzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Ewww. i think this phone is FUGLYYYYYYYY. why did nokia make such a phone ? and theres no outstanding feature for this phone. who would buy this ? i looks like a walki talki. I love nokia but not this phone. N95 rocks.
some of the faults ppl say on here seem exaggerated...
but thats just my opinion =/
The poorest phone I have ever had ! Or should I say phones, I had mine replaced 3 times and my partners replaced twice both with various faults, screen, keypad, software etc etc. Finaly got my network provider to admit that they had had nothing but trouble and they had ceased to offer them, I also found out another provider had also stopped stocking it. I gave up and got rid in the end and got a Samsung X820 which has hardly any features but has never gone wrong. This phone destroyed all my faith in Nokias. The one plus point though is the weight, it saves pumping iron down the gym !
Whats up with the GPS on this phone? It lags soooo bad when i try to use it... and the navagating chicks voice sounds weird... Also the flash on the camera is way too bright its blinding my pet goldfish Pippy when i try to take photos of him, is there anyway of turning the brightness down? thx
I'am really very happy with this phone. Regrets only with the camera quality.
A Real celebrity !!!!!
What a poor and ugly phone! It has no front camera for video calls, my brother has this phone. He said he will buy another one..Low class phone. You must throw this phone at the garbage ,there are a lot of N series better than this..And the phone keeps on hanging when there are lots of applications installed. Dont buy this phone.

Now that N81 is not the music flagship, new music phone will come Q1 2008.
Ive a problem with the battery. From the time I've bought it til now, I see a very noticeable difference in its size. It's enlarged now. It seems like it's swollen,bloated. Before its easy to insert & remove it from the phone. Now it doesnt fit in the phone anymore. Its relatively big now. I have to force pushing it hard just to insert it as well as the battery cover. What's wrong with my battery?

What that means is the network you are trying to connect to is secure and you need the WEP key. You need to find out waht the key is from the WLAN router/PC set up
Hi there.. i try to use the internet on WLAN on my N91. My problem is it says "enter WEP key for WLAN".. What do i need to enter? How will i know the WEP key? Kindly help me with my concern..thanks alot!
When N91 was launched i din't liked it but later on my bro gifted me this cell. Now i am in love with the sound. It takes some time for opening the gallery but i can compromise on that. The camera is good. It only lacks flash..Moreover being 8 GB this cell is pretty fast....When i plug the headset into my ears i jsut forget everything & from there i am like the God.....Hatss off to this cell...It can't be compared with any other phone.......
N91 has obviusly better sound quality than N75, you dont need to be an audiophile for that. Try hi end or atleast decent headphones the difference is clear:
The N91 doesn't "boost" the low frequencies. What happens is that many players (ipod included) attenuate (the opposite of boost) the low frequencies.
So the N91 is better at reproducing whatever sound there is in the file. This is helped because of the almost flat response from about 15 Hz all the way to about 21 KHz. So it reproduces all the audible frequencies better.
Also the very high SNR makes it sound great. It means that the gain relative to the noise floor is much better than the ipod.
So the N91 doesn't boost the frequencies it's just better at reproducing them as they were intended. The orginal headphones though they are a bit bassy. They also act as a filter and they accentuate the bass and maybe reduce a bit of the higher frequencies
