I still remember the day when I got the n95 and took it out the box I thought the screen was massive and it was the best thing ever till I found out the battery life was just terrible and then soon after the n95 8gb came out then all these other phones start popping out of no where.
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2008what is the advantage of having 3D Graphics HW Accelerator? I'm guessing it renders mobile games and applications (such as graphic intensive, or shares processing of moving images) therefore better performance.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2008 I think its easier to buy a new battery and charge them both carry them than to buy a ipod an... moreYeah, it is easier to carry just one. Since I always bring a backpack though, the point is moot.
I find that the ipod can amplify the sound much better, so that it absolutely drowns out background noise. And a camera? One thing, optical zoom. Nuff said.
But, the other features are great, like wifi, video player, radio. Simpler phone? Maybe an n95 minus the cam and the music player. Can I have a custom one made? :)
As I have said, I will not trade this phone for another phone, and it is on it's second year in my hands. Not puting this phone down, but just be real. No phone can compete with a real dedicated camera on camera features, or a dedicated music player on audio features.
Eric - Manila, 16 Dec 2008Battery life, yeah, not that good... it's only 950mAH as compared to 1000 plus something ont t... more I think its easier to buy a new battery and charge them both carry them than to buy a ipod and carry it all that , the reason about n95 is all in one camera (cause nobody carry a digital cam) now radio music player wifi beside laptop, and converters, movie players(if you already hack it) and lots of features that not even iphone has like record video. :) maybe Im not right ''
Does this phone have an option to upgrade the memory? The seller says it has a microSD (Transflash) up to 2 GB expansion slots. Can we use a 4GB or 8GB microsd card to upgrade the memory capasity?
I just got N95, though someone said it can take up to 8GB microSD or even 16GB. But GSM arena said it can take up to 8GB microSD, while Nokia said 2GB max. I never tried any but i think i have gotten myself one of the best phone. I used it and i think is great mostly the pics output.

I perchased and n95 and I Will never give it up, i did get the newer battery for it, but this phone can do anything.
the human eye can only see 5MP anyway this camera is sweet.
I even tried the iphone, but this is a whole 'nother level
This is the only phone i've kept for sooo long, been about 1 and a half years now!! love it!

it defeats the main purpose and use of this phone,
better sell that n95 of yours and get a simpler phone instead

Eric - Manila, 19 Dec 2008Yup, unit is ok now... I was thinking about it last night... Because I noticed I'm starting... moreWell, what can I say, as a videographer taking shots of properties for sale, at first I'm carrying my 35mm & 40mm cams then I ended up with this unit, when I tried it at first I was astonished by the pix as they are about the same quality (maybe a lot lower!LOL) when used in a well lighted environment and the plus is that I can easily upload the photos right there and then, so for now I shelf the 2 cams and since the unit is multi-purpose, I only have to carry this one. Cheers!
dilip, 18 Dec 2008hi, can any1 tell me how 2 update firmware v30 on my n95Oh, just go back a couple of pages (or more.) There were a lot of posts about that topic (I remember posting some on that very same subject.)
dRaven, 18 Dec 2008Sorry to hear about your previous problem, but can I take it that you got the problem solved? ... moreYup, unit is ok now...
I was thinking about it last night... Because I noticed I'm starting to carry around my iPod and Exilim 6MP camera again. As a music player, i think the N95 can't compete with the iPod. As a camera, it won't be able to compete with a real dedicated camera with optical zoom and a good flash.
It's a jack of all trades phone. You can do a lot of things with it. but if you are going to be serious about your music or your pictures, then get a dedicated device for it.
That's my take on it anyway. What will I trade my N95 for? Hmmm... a bunch of other gadgets and a heavy duty utility belt. :D
China N95, 18 Dec 2008Dun buy it fr there ..... china manufacture their own n95 ..... and oso apple iphone ....very ... moreYeah, there are imitation N95 (among others) coming from China. But what we are really talking about here are N95s (real ones, not copies or imitations) that are manufactured in China.
Mine is made in China. I think it's all about logistics, as one poster pointed out. If you are in ASPAC, then you most probably will get a phone from China. If you are in EMEA, then chances are it's going to be Finland. YMMV.
China made, Finland made. Should be the same, if we trust Nokia to ensure the manufacturing process and the quality control are up to the same standards.
