I do not recommend this phone..
Battery life is terrible, it Works for 12 to 16 Hours only when you don’t do much, if you use WLAN will last for 3 hours only. When you use GPS last for 3.5 hours.
I strongly reject this phone, I have been using NOKIA phones since 1997.
We just bought an N95 a week back (we already have the N73, and Motorola Ming 1200, and a Nokia 6233). I must say this was the biggest mistake of our life.
First the battery life is pathetic -- just three hours or so, using only one of the features- GPS. Just two hours or even less than that if we used the WLAN.
What use is a whole list of features if you cannot use any of them?
WE were doing a cross country yesterday and you won't believe that we have to keep the tin can connected to our car adapter the whole time, as soon as we got off to go inot the mall, the battery just flowed out within an hour or so!
The music system is worse than even N73, and has cheap third class headphones, compared to Sony Ericcson (I stupidly sold my SE W810 for this iron block)!
The build quality is also extremely poor with squeaky sliding and tacky plastic finish.
What's more the photo results from N73 were much better despite lower megapixels -- one wonders if more megapixels is also better?!
All those who are jiving up the N95 evidently have not bought it, or were using a really pathetic set before, otherwise they would know what other phones are offering, and at what price.
A phone with a US$ 700 price tag, worth US$ 400 or less. A Failed product!
Yes the N95 supports SDHC. That includes the 4GB cards available now and the 8GB cards that are going to be released this winter.
No, the origonal N95's cannot use the 1200mAh battery that the American version uses: it's simply too big.
GUYS & GALS,
There is a new compatible battery out from nokia that is a lot better than the original battery. One question to all!!, please if anybody knows FOR sure,
ok, here goes,
I heard that with the new firmware, 4GB HCSD cards work wit the N95.
The U.S. version N95 has the same QVGA (240*320 pixels) resolution like the original N95. The differences are the 850/1900 MHz HSDPA support instead of 2100 MHz. Some design modifications in the rear part of the phone to fit the larger 1200 mAh battery inside. I don't know about the "N95i" or "N95 8GB".
I've just bought an N95 with 12.0.013 version/software. I just wanna ask you guys if you also experience these things...about the review key (your shortcut key to your gallery at the right side of the n95), does it really blink twice after using your phone even if you did not activate or use either your camera or review key? how many shots did you have when you chose burst in the sequence mode of the camera? Do you have a same number of shots when you repeat the burst option in your sequence mode? because the maximum number of shots i came up to is 6 but sometimes 2 or 3 and sometimes 1? do u also experience this thing? thanks for those who'll respond with these concerns of mine.
o yes i downloaded software and installed it on my n95 i can watch live tv 5 channels (cnn fashion tv sky news bb1 and documentary ) guess what it works fantastic
the are two basic problems with the n95. 1) battery life is pathetic 2)the screen always freezes but just for a lil while. otherwise it,s the best handset available. i work at o2 and i have tried and had a play with most handsets but i tell you i can,t wait to see if nokia come out with something better than the n95 !!!!!!!!!!!!!! but till they do i,m sticking to my n95 !
M@T2, the famous Madpanas also talked of the new (ie American) N95 having a VGA screen. Is this true?? The famous Andy Burgin has spoke of an 8GB N95i?? Is this true?? Which one is which or are they in fact one and the same?? Has Nokia used the Europeans as a testing ground only to bring out a spanking new and improved version for the Americans??
hey im in Australia, i got this mobile 4 weeks back. my opinion abt this mobile is that its no good for the penny u pay for it. as far as the camera is concerned 5MP- it is said so. it doest give the real clearity on the picture quality on a 2MP SonyEricsson.
Then GPS- it really great n handy when it get connected.But getting the link is ??????
Battery drains off if i listen for 30mins.
Otherwise this phone is really good for if u use as just a phone.
good phone nokia camera is wicked as is the mp3 player but the battery is poo it lasts about 16 hours i work for orange i charged it properly and i also close all the applications asap but it still dies mega quick on the whole the phone is ok
The 5pm camera is really 5pm. not software needed.
And why listen to the sales department from another company talking about the N95? Obviously they're gonna dis the phone cause they want you to buy an 02.
And Canadian HSDPA is actually 2100 so... That new model is only good in america
shut up and stop lying SE better than nokia.just bow down to nokia N95 ultimate king of communicating
New variant of Nokia N95! Compatible only with AT&T's 3G/HSDPA frequency 850/1900 MHz, 128 MB of RAM, increased 1200 mAh battery. This will actually be the U.S. version of the N95. Therefore it's not compatible with Europe/Asia 3G networks. The 1200 mAh battery cannot be inserted in the original N95 because it's larger in size. The U.S. version of N95 has undergone some design modifications to fit the 1200 mAh in the device.
this fone is still the best there is for nokia..hopefully nokia will produce more 5mp fone..n do upgrade a lot in the battery life..
i av this fne n its a 5mp camera av compared it wiv a 2 mp n its well betta n i compared it wiv a 3 n its still better so i fink its a 5 lol......jay
can anyone help me out, i've been trying to get the best deal for a new N95, obviously i dont wanna pay for it and would like to stick with O2.
but the geezas at o2 have twice told me not to bother with this phone, with one guy saying the camera is the equivalent to a 3 megapixel and the other guy said you have to increase the pixels with some software of something and its actually a 2 meg????
this is there sales dept so i was willing to give them some business but they both slagged it off.
whats this software issue? is the camera really 5 meg.
most of the reviews on this site have been positive to wicked
so, has anyone got any independant camera reviews. is it worth a punt or what cos i really like this phone and these s0ds are putting me off.
help me please guys
