Many thanx for the advise given, guess where i am off too today ? you got it too get my N95 will let you know how i get on x
I bought this phone 4 days ago and on the whole have been very impressed with it even though I have just had to get a replacement phone as one of the keys stopped working for no reason (didn't spill anything on it or drop it).
My initial impressions are:
Pros: *great camera quality - not all the features I would have wanted as I bought N95 in lieu of buying a real camera but I don't think its reasonable to ask for everything in a hibrid
*love being able to watch free TV (vodafone australia) and amazed at the quality
*I'm not generally a gadget person, but even I find it easy to use (menus, bluetooth, SD etc)
*love the fact I can set the alarm clock to wake me up every week day at the same time - its the little things like this that make a difference!
Cons:*came with really crappy games (1 amped up version of Snake and a demo version of some weird game I don't really understand)
*when I downloaded backgammon (from Vodafone Aus) it was the only application I had problems with (froze when I opened it quite often). May not be a problem with the phone.
*the battery life really isn't great. I admit I was playing with the phone more than I usually would - checking out tv streaming, music player, camera etc - but would have hoped it would be better than what it turned out to be (have to charge everynight - no big deal unless I forget to do it one night). Making sure all applications are closed when I'm finished with them helps a little.
*the camera has a timer on it, but the phone is tapered so you can't stand it on its side to take the shot and it's quite difficult to find something it will lean against to stay up - a bit annoying.
*headphones are pretty crappy.
NEW N95 STUDY!
i have N93 4GB now and i would say perfect and lol, i have 300 songs in my phone memory and still there 2gb space..So why spend more money and buy 8GB ? Tomorrow some one will make 12GB, so we will spend 1000.00 for phone ? forget it, and i would say you will not need 8GB im sure, because you are using phone only as phone, and some times camera..
This phone is great but the camera is not as bright as k800i and k850i. Video is 400 kb per second and my 5700 is only 60 kb (@ mp4) per second. How will i record with this phone. 1 minute of video is 24000 kb so 8Gb =5 hrs and 30mins of video. A phone like this deserve more memory. I will buy one soon. Its the best so far.
This is the best fone i have ever seen..if your N95 is new you have update your firmware and maps than you'll notice battery life and camera will improve..i'll buy N95 8gb it's the best fone it's better than iPhone,W960i etc..
This phone on a site looks pretty good and all but when you hold one you're sold, the screen is so clear and sharp, the camera is amazing, and so is the video. Definitley go for it, if you don't like it sell it because resell is excellent.
Please can you advise should i realy go for this phone or not alot of the reviews are good but do they out way the bad ???
What ideea do you have about firmware update 12.0.13 ? My curent version of firmware is 10, if i make an update is k?
You should wait for the 8GB N95. The N73 music edition is quite similar to it. The sony K850 is missing some of the essentials that the N95 has. If money is an issue, you should see if you can get a better rate off the internet or offa reseller.
Hey guys !!!
m here 4 sincere advice !!

Should i go 4 it or not ???

42000 Rs/- i.e 700 dollars is fair amount for N-95 or not ?????
Or should i wait 4 K850 ????
I have just updated the firmware to 11.0.026 from 10.x.xxx and it has resulted in slightly better battery life than before. I have got nearly 9 hours out of it now before having to reach for the charger.
thanks for the comment. it was already set on dual. i ended up having to read the manual and that if you're WLAN is always searching for a network, then it'll consume battery. i went ahead and turned it off last night. i just recharged my battery and i'll wait till days end and see if there's an improvement to my battery life.
Great phone very happy with it. However I dont even get a day out of battery and I am only using it for calls and have WLAN etc off at the moment. I believe there is a better battery available for the N95 can anyone tell what is called and where I might purchase it?
I'm using this fone for a month now... Fell in big love with it. Using it with Sandisk 4GB MicroSDHC card. Works very well.
A few flaws...
Restarts on heavy usage like moving through songs and multiple apps usage.
Build quality is little scarry... just concerned about whether the sliding is going to be loose day by day.
rest everything is very fine. Hats off to Nokia
Can this great device support 4gb card? or just 2gb maximum? And how to save a picture or photos when we received one from email? I mean to save jpg directly to phone's memory. Unlike when we browsing on pc, there's always an option when we right-click the mouse button. Here in my phone, i dont find any of that kind options to 'save picture as..' or 'save as' please help. Any input appreciated
I like the idea of a GPS Navigator phone, but I can't find any maps available for either my home (Philippines) or my place of work (mainland China) so I can't see the point of buying either a 6110 or N95. Anybody help me with this one?
