I don't think n95 is a touch screen, that may be a china manufactured version, and yes my battery only lasts for 7 hours max even if just on stand by!! WAT THE *#&@!!!
I sold my N95 yesterday for £100...cheap? I loved it and really did not want to let it go. I never had ANY issues with it and had dropped it only once from a heart stopping height of about 4 inches. For all the functions it holds and the quality of the music player, this fone is of it's time. Even though it is nearly 2 years old from when 1st released, I think it still packs a punch.
I done my mate a favour really and I did NOT want to let it go BUT I had to remember:
I had owned it for at least 14 Months and a 'no haggle' £100 dont seem bad when I consider what I paid for it.
I got it free on a NEW 12 Month contract. 6 months into my contract, O2 decided they were going to stop calls to Non Geographical Numbers, i.e 08 numbers, coming out of customers Inclusive Minutes of their contract. Because of this, they knew a lot of customers would be very annoyed about this and to avoid being taken to Court and have a judge POSSIBLY side with the customer, (if the judge did, O2 would have been hurt financially) O2 allowed customers who had made at least 1 call to an 08 number in the month prior to them announcing the change, to cancel their contracts. So as I was an 0856 dialler, I cancelled, got to keep the handset (as did all those other customers who canceled this way). I got a N95 'free' for fulfilling way less than the minimum term!!!! COOL, eh? I ported my number out to T-Mobile PAYG, then took a NEW contract on O2 again for 12 months and got the Sony Ericsson P1i and ported my number back in. That was the only decent fone out at the time. I used it for 2 days, did'nt get on with it and gave it to my nephew. I have never really got on with SE fones but made this one an exception and I carried on with the N95. So anyway, EFFECTIVELY, I got 2 phones 'free' technically out of 1 contract, which aint bad.
So, although I sold my N95 in very good condition, for cheap, I did benefit from the pleasure of using it for many months and it was free. PLUS, my upgrade is due now so I have'nt really lost out, though I was hoping to use the N95 for a little while longer as I am not entirely sure whether to go for an O2 XDA Stellar (HTC Tytn II) or wait for the N96????? HTC Tytn II is known as the Vario 3 for T-Mobile. However, T-Mob have announced a Vario IV though not sure if O2 will stock this or under what model name.
I'm now having to use a BlackBerry 8100 ( i got this one on a very good deal too, lol!!!) ALL LEGIT I might add.
BUT the N95 was always a dream to use. I have always LOVED Nokia fones for their ease of use and their construction and durability. The N95 was a 'Jack of all Trades'. I got it at the time when there were a lot of complaints and moans about it. BUT this is most of the time down to how the person handles their fone, i.e. what they put on their fone and how much of a rough time they give it. PLUS, most of the issues can be easily resolved by a SW update! Yet you get ppl who want to start a lawsuit because 'the goods are not fit for the purpose that they were made for'! Still there are a few moans about this fone today.
Come on, anyone who cant see that this fone is the dogs danglies, needs to go to SpecSavers! The other surrising thing is that if you were to recycle the fone, you would get £100 for it. If you want to recycle the 8800 GOLD, you get £120. I think that says quite a bit, no? To see Recycle prices (UK) goto : http://www.metrorecycles.com/default.aspx
Its interesting what some fones fetch.....if you got a 6230i, you get £25. Not bad.
just wondering for all you n95 users, does your headphones produce this fuziness when you listen to music? even my mp3's dont do that...
carloud, 26 Jul 2008hmm I was searching for nokia videos on youtube when I stumbled upon a firmware update for n81... morethe menu transition slows down the phone and eats some more ram. before firmware upgrade, n81 8gb used to have some 46mb of free ram. but after firmware upgrade, it goes down to 38mb only because of that menu/ui transition..
n95 is better than n96. n96 has no 3d graphics accelerator and the processor is going backwards, arm 9!!!
Like the phone very much. Just that the it's got a loose slider but I've fixed it by unscrewing the front part and fixing some pieces of tape below it.
I have a Nokia N95 and in my opinion this is the best phone ever! Many features and capabilites that users can use.
hmm I was searching for nokia videos on youtube when I stumbled upon a firmware update for n81 which actually updates the whole O.S. browsing thru the menus actually now has an animation , similar to iphone quite cool
err...very very similar to n78 hehehehehe!!!! very very nice menu transition!!!
hope they wont forget the n95 cause it's rumored that it will come to n82 as well...
n95 can handle 16gb right now and it is theorized that it could handle 32 gb as well...
sir dilip, what I was trying to say is that...
from what I've experience on my unit and from what I 've seen on other n95s
it doesnt blink as well
I just purchased a nokia n95 yesterday and I love it. My boyfriend's got an iphone and it's great and all with the touch screen plus slightly faster internet connectivity/download, but the n95 is better in respect to its function capabilities. Both are great phones with their differences but I still like the n95 better :D
