Need so advice, Im looking for 3G phone and im considering N95 and 6110 Navigator. which is better in performance wise? and i heard 6110 crashes a lot, does this phone crash to coz that'll be a bummer. pls advice.
I have bought n95 yesterday... it is a real gem...
display is just amaizing... music quality is really kul....
camara is gr8...( hope there should be some optical zoom)....
phone is light in weight , compared to the features it carry....
Battary didnt gave any pain till now, even after heavy use for 1 day i needed to charge only at night....
Well I never said the N95 could out do an E90, I guess I just never see the need to type exceptionally long word documents on a cell phone, if you could even call the E90 a cell phone.
The N93 was bashed a ton because it was huge. The E90 is, wait for it, BIGGER than the N93. Now that being said, the E90 is a completely different phone than the N93 or the N95. The E90 is, as someone indirectly pointed out, a laptop replacment. The N95 is not. The N95 combines the phone, the point-and-shoot cam, the mp3 player, the portable radio and the portable GPS very nicely into one compact device. It doesn't pack along a 50wpm capable keyboard, but it is 90 grams lighter and a ton shorter/narrower.
I guess you're right, these two phones are in different leagues. I, personally, will never find myself in a situation where I will need to type extended essays on my phone. If you feel you need to, then yes, the QWERTY is essential. But for emails, text messages, editing existing text files (last minute edit etc.) and even blog entries, I'm 100% OK with a 12 key input.
Any, being Canadian, I have to throw in my two cents to defend RIM. Yah, RIM's claim to fame was push email and yes other phones can handle email now, but the Blackberry Enterprise Server will ensure than Blackberries remain popular for the foreseeable future.
Now in my earlier post, I was in no way bashing the 8830. I was just using it as an example as to how a generation gap can put a 12 key user like me head and shoulders over a mini-QWERTY user like my dad. We both type emails on our phones and I type em faster. For that length of text input, i think that the 12 key is a better solution because it allows the phone to be SMALLER. The 8830 and the 8800 are wonderful phones and perhaps have the best build quality of any pda-style phone on the market. The ability of the 8830 to use both CDMA and GSM networks lets my dad use the more reliable Telus CDMA network here in Canada, but still be able to use his phone when he travels to Singapore on business. 1x EVDO rev. A is also far more prevalent in North America than HSDPA is. Evenis HSDPA is faster, its no use if you can't get a signal.
K i've gone off topic enough. Far out.
Anyone has experience for browsing with N95 ?
the screen is NOT touchscreen, rite ? Is it easy to navigate the browser (open/close windows/using search engine)
N95 sounds great with latest technology, just curios since P1 can browse easily.
hey guys,u know anyone would love to get this sophisticated phones but just ppl not willing to spend that kind of $$$ just for a phone.But im thinking of getting this phone soon.What's wrong changing it ones for a phone full of function than getting a cheap phone than change it again and again?
Brynn, thanks for your reply on colours and screens. You may not agree but 18 bit 262144 colour screens are in reality 24 bit. However 6 bits are unused to make it appear as if it was 18 bit. You said you prefer 262K; yet if you take N93 and N93i (which have 262K and 16M respectively) the N93i definitely and obviously looks more colourful. One attains a more vivid colour experience. I am hoping that in their next batch of phones Nokia couple VGA screens with 16M colours. I believe that this combination will give the user the most vivid and accurate rendition of text, images and graphics.
Far, you are far away from the truth regarding QWERTY keyboards. There is no way the N95 can compete with the E90, Palm Treo 680 etc when it comes to typing on the go. The N95 at best will use T9 for text entry but this has always been an inferior solution to the classic QWERTY. These days portability is the word. We take our phones everywhere and that is why they often displace the laptop. The N95 is a multimedia device for general purpose whereas E90 is a multimedia device for business. If you want to type long, fast, accurate documents one has to use the QWERTY. If one practises, it's amazing the type of speed one can attain. When you type a word; its construction is made by you; letter by letter; not like predictive text where one has to continuously double check the predicted text to make sure the sentence makes sense!!
Yes I fully understand your frustration using that blackberry.Why people buy them I will never know!All RIM really had over the competition was push email and that was licensed out long ago.Now,office applications are essential for some and the ease of use is paramount,this is where the e90 and units like the HTC kaiser come into their own.The afore mentioned models do more or less everything an n95 does but just with a tad more authority.Be in no doubt touchscreen and QWERTY keyboards have a place.The n95 is a great little phone,infact the best in it's field but you have to remember what field your in. :-)
hi i am wondering if the N95 are being released in any colours besides the plum and sand? please respond
The batery tooks 1h30min to be full, is that normal? it doesnt need just 1h?
Well if I needed to write a 1000 word document i'd pull out my laptop and type it, or i'd pull out a bluetooth keyboard and type it. I'd hate to type 1000 words on even a blackberry or an E61 or watever. My dad's got a blackberry 8830 and i type faster on my N95 than he can on his 8830.
I keep my dairy on my N95 through the lifeblog application, and i can type just fine.
Touchscreen and/or qwerty keyboard is essential for any serious work.Try constructing a 1000word doc with a normal keypad and you will see what I mean(copy and paste is a nightmare!).We could also debate the merits of touchscreen when surfing the web.Do you like messing around on that little keypad or would you prefer one touch scrolling.Pro's and cons for whatever input method and i'm sure Nokia knew the majority of n95 owners were more than happy with the abc2,def3 etc
i find in front street with nighmode on and expososure up at 2+ it can act as an infra red cam,,ok its not quite that good but if you hold cam steady in low light its good.
The moon was out full blast a week ago and got some great shots at 3 mp setting because on night mode at 5mp on n95 is a long time to hold it still..
At this moment unless somone offered me and e90 swap for my n95 nothing would make me give up n95 ,,in fact the k750i and sharp fones can still outdo most camfones to this day..Years ago you took in your film and had choice of 1hr or 24 hr printing and wat you got was a 6 x 4 inch print and thats all i want and get that with 3mp n95 and thats it,,wat the heck your doing with them is not on,, your blowing them up on comp screen and scrutinising every pixel,,just leave it and be happy like me with a 6x4 clear snap..It can take a while to master these fones with all different settings but ive had some good succes with flouro and incandecent settings "but" if you were pro photographer you would take shot after shot under pro lighting conditions with a grand of camera and even more for a sophisticated lens optics to get a good shot and then its under the monocular to study it further,,so ive got wat i need and perhaps others have but many are still not satisfied and the more up the mp race we go the worse its going to get and i think some just want a top spec fone even if its quite bad just to show off when really nobody cares except yourself,,i still see 3310 and old moto flip fones all the time but no one is embarrassed most people dont care they just want a fone that txts and talks and primarily WORKS !!
Updated price in Greenhills, San Juan, PHILIPPINES as of August 6, 2007, 28k pesos (Nokia PH warranty), 622 USD.
That's not really true. The N95 does not shoot well under low-light conditions. The LED flash tends to make images lose their colour and the camera response time is rather slow. That being said, it still is an excellent camera when shooting under normal conditions (indoor or outdoor in good weather).
The video is NOT dvd quality, but it's about the same as a regular non-HD tv signal, which is good enough for me.
I think ppl who says N95 image quality suks nd compares to other fones then they are either jalouse of not affording it or they are illiterate nd crazy. N95 has the best imge quality by a mobile nd it won the best award for its image quality. Also the video quality is dvd like. Screan quality nd size is amazing. i mean nuthin beats this fone. its indeed the BEST.
Perfect sound quality, I've tested it, never seen such quality in any other phone!
Well i type a good 15wpm 12 key so i'm ok without a QWERTY. It just takes a little practice. IMO QWERTY keyboards are for old businessmen who can't even type on a computer keyboard to begin with lol.
And this phone does NOT have the a touchscreen. The full specs for the N95i haven't been released, but I'm sure that if it had a touchscreen Nokia would be touting that out, instead it's only talking about its insane storage capacity (8GB internal memory + microSD slot that supports SDHCs). I've got a 4GB SDHC in my N95 and it's more than enough. 8GB SDHC's will hit the market this december too, so theoritically you could have a 16GB phone... (iphone killer anyone?).
If the N95i DOES have a multitouch screen that would be AWESOME... but im sure it'd slow down the phone a lot. Since this phone isn't that fast to begin with that would stink, and if they increased the processing power of the phone to make it faster the battery life would stink even more than it already does (although your N95 won't be dieing in 5 hours like some Nokia haters would have you believe, it will stand out only about 3-4 days under regular usage and perhaps only 1-2 days if you fully use all its features and talk about 45minutes a day + on GSM).
N95 is capable of viewing/editing word etc but it cannot replace a pda.Can you imagine how many precious minutes,hell maybe hours would be wasted trying to construct a document with such a little keypad.Choose an E series with a qwerty keyboard or a pda phone with qwerty keyboard and touchscreen.
