This message is mainly aimed at those thinking of buying a nokia n95.
For 9 months i had wanted one of these phones, every couplde of days i would look at this forum and read others views. To be honest i was a bit put off after reading them. Anyway.. i finally splashed out and bought one of ebay. (£200).
At first i was over the moon..it has incredible features. The gps is fine (even though many say its crap) the camera is great etc howeer i had a couplde of problems.. The camera took ages to load, shoot and save. The battery life was dissapointing and the slider was getting a bit loose after a couple of weeks.
However...i had been wanting to upgrade the firmware bt was a bit hesitant as i was worried about wreking the phone. Last week i took the jump.. i now have v20....and im back to my first love. The battery now last longer, the camera is very quick..little prob like crashing have gone. I still have the loose slider but its still working fine.
So my advice about this phone is:
If youve been looking at it..and can afford it get it. I would never pay the store price so i reccomend a new one from ebay.
Hope this has helped in your decision..
Can any one tell me how the N95 compares to the 6110 Navigator?
I am esp interested in the GPS receiver
Yar plz what is its bettery backup if i will kake 60 photos in a day...
because it is giving only a half day back up.......
Nokia firmware upgrades depends on the product code of your phone.. You can change it though to avail the updates then put the proper product code back..
try this http://nokia.nigelcoldwell.co.uk/firmware.htm
heheheh I've been messing with the "ccam" application
(the one which lets you take pictures without the red light and sound)
I was surprised to see that it could also do macro
hehehe just press the camera button to focus...then snap with the main center button after it focuses hehehe
I just posted this because some say that ccam only does fixed focus and cant do macro
one thing I noticed about n95
its that the flex ribbon problem isnt as many as other nokia phones such as n80
it seems nokia did a good job in fortifying the n95's flex ribbon
much like the n7650 ei?
I want to buy a nokia n95 phone, but i think is a fake one. Is made in Japan.
Are nokia phones made in Japan?
Can anybody point me towards the v21 firmware update as when I go on Nokia PC suite it only shows the v20 firmware update yet a guy I work with has managed to get v21 from the same site?
I think you mean March 2007, and yep NOT ONE SE has as much functionality or support. XPERIA X1 comes close but the E90 takes that AND P1 down!
i want you to all stop and think.
this phone has been out since march 2006 right.
thats over 2 years ago.
look at the specs of this, and then look at sony erricsons latest device. ITS STILL NOT AS GOOD.
this is why nokia are so far ahead. their phones of 2 years ago are already better than the ones sony erricsons havent released yet!!!
since i bought this phoen one month ago i had problem
first when it rings i try to answer but it does not click
second when talking with somebody over the phone the voice started to fade and becomes so slow
i want to know what is the problem with my phone which i spent a fortune to buy it
why r ppl so clueless...why the hell do u give out ur imei? its like a credit card number...if somebody hacks in ur phone or smthing i will laugh my A S S off
tbh Sony ericsson are the best phones in The Uk
but Nokia are best if you include the rest of the world
@all n95 users
first stop postin ur imei in public
secondly at present it is just impossible for ne1 to issue a symbian signed certificate for ur imei so stop askin for it (unless dat person has publisher id ) .....at present u urselves can sign all applications which use a trusted uid b goin to symbain signed web page n following instructions is dam easy .
now for those applications which have untrusted uid in dat case u wont b able to sign ur application using d online method .but i wud like to inform u der is a chinese website n yes dey r providing symbian signed certificates all u need to do is go on der website n register der r many people who have got certificates from der http://finestfones.blogspot.com/2008/03/get-your-own-developer-certificate-now.html
you need a Publisher ID to get the Certificate and they cost way to much ($200) but now they let you sign it through there site but only if its a open UID
the only other way is dontate to tongren deveoper of FlipSilent ,ShakeSMS and VibrateCall and give him your imei number and ask him to see if he can get a Certificate for you
or if you have a symbian signed account and have made up a Certificate before then you can get it again
hope this helps
