ladies and gentleman i do thank u for affording me the opportunity to post my thoughts..personally I think I will stick with N91 , mainly my entire Prisn break series fits comfortably on my built in 4G hard drive...in AVI format , plays perfectly... and the need for GPS system on a cell, well a I guess some would consider this "wow" , Me I am not afraid to ask for directions or Google it on my massive ..
Really R9000 rand for a phone in our country ..
me thinks its a tad bit much hey...
Had the N95 for 2 weeks. This is the most sophisticated cell phone I have ever used. I like the fact that I can install 3rd party apps and not limited to proprietary software. I like the fact that I have all these features and functions all in 1 single device. This smart phone is definitely not for everyone. You can not expect to fully perform well just out of the box. That’s what the Black Berry for. If you want to utilize all the technologies in this phone, it will request some 3rd party apps and adjustments. Another word, it will require lot of reading and research.
Recommend 3rd Party App / Mod
-Upgrade the SD Memory. The 1 Gig that comes with package is not sufficient. The Route 66 Maps for PAC-NW alones cost nearly 500 MB.
-GPS Mapping software is average; I have to switch to Route 66. Route 66 is a much better GPS Map Apps. (NEW soon to be release firmware 12.x.x can tracks you while you are indoor)
-Fring (A new way to IM with your contact but might require internet data plan [t-zones do not work] if WiFi is not available. Note: I haven’t got the VOIP working tho)
-Calcium – very easy to use calculator, a must have!
-Gmail mobile (assuming you have a gmail email account)
-Google Maps, a great way to monitor traffic.
-Orb – Wow, what an amazing apps. This allows you to stream anything on your computer, even youtube.
Hi..guys....this N95 is super....its look cute and lovely...just nice to use.TQ
www.mmc-forums.net or com is a good website for themes for the N95 ,they used to give you free software but stopped doing it now ,the themes easy to download to the N95
i just love the way all these people who DONT own an N95 think they can comment on it!!
umm you dont see me posting reports about a K800????? come on you SE lovers work out that ALL SE's use symbian! a NOKIA OS!! thats right your precious SE's need help from nokia!! lol you make me laugh!!!
Hey, where did you get the 4GB MicroSDHC from? As in which country are you in?
I'm from Singapore, doesn't seem to have it here. Does it work flawlessly?
I recently bought a 4GB micro SDHC and it works perfectly with my N95!!!
k850i is better camera than N-95 but d keypad is not good.if ur always txting lyk me,ur fingers getting pain.
actually i m not satisft to see the model.this is not good mobile as i expected.
the internal memory of phone is too little and capacity of expandable card is not large.
*Don't listen to all of the haters of this phone*
They only talk crap because they're too poor to get one.
I'm bot all pro-N95 or anti-K750i or anything, I like them both a lot, but they are made for two compeletly different classes, and I'm not saying one's higher than the other, because they're not, but:
The N95 is made for buisness use and the K750i was made for camera usage.
I'm 14, and I bought my N95 on June 20th, and it is better than everyone thinks.
1. Great camera-takes good video and great pictures
2. Lots of applications and such on the phone-you'll never get bored
3. Its not very big (dimensions wise) at all-about the size of a BlacBerry Pearl, except a little thicker, but A LOT heavier
4. Awesome FM radio
5. Really loud speakers
6. Can get up to a 2gb microSD-good enough for me
7. Cool everything!
1. Really, REALLY poor battery life-I have to charge it daily
2. FM radio is kind of QUIET
3. Mine is from is from a guy who lived in and bought it from Singapore, so Nokina USA can't help me with ANYTHING!!!
4. The sliding part creaks when I push on the buttons (not on the number pad)
5. The little mp3 remote, even when it's locked (on hold), will activate the voice thingy during class and after a few seconds will say "No matches found"
I've had this phone for a week or so, and on the whole it is very good, but if I do not mention a function in this review assume it is perfectly executed because i could list the phones positive points all day. However, for such an advanced handset with many new, exciting and well executed features, I wish it had some of the handy features available on basic handsets instead of pointless software like barcode readers that don't work.
I assume you have read multiple reviews about the negative points of this phone e.g. battery life, which is poor but when you consider what this phone can do it isn't that bad. Next, I will go through some of the negative points that most people do not mention:
This phone does not have a stopwatch or timer, WHY? The flash cannot be used as a torch or for lighting video, WHY? Even basic sony phones can perform this useful function. The burst mode on the camera is very poor as it leaves a few seconds between each photo, which is no good for capturing the perfect shot. The delay between each shot is huge and the camera cannot be rested on its side to take timer photos as it topples over. Recent contacts are not listed separately for sending messages to so you have to search for your contacts each time. "GPS data" function only works in km not km or miles like in "maps". The music player cannot be closed using the "c" key in the open software list so you have to enter the menu within the program to close it. The sat nav cannot be set to go via another destination. When you are using the satnav and the phone rings, you cannot set the phone to automatically be on loudspeaker. Therfore, after you answer the call you have to hold down the menu key, select standby, the press loudspeaker. By this time you have probably crashed or missed the call.
At least most of these shortcomings can be fixed in the future by downloading free software, but until then I will have to settle for an almost ultimate handset.
this is awonderful phone some stupid se fans r telling all negatives about this phone tough they donot really own this phone this mobile is next generation mobile the cam is wowful the desgin is also great very very best phone in n series iam telling really i had no problems with this super phone iam surprising how other stupid people r telling bad about this phone really they r big stupids i only agree with the battery life but it depends upon ur usage for me battery comes for one and half day n95 has so many features so how can we expect battery life to be longer really shame on the people who are posting all stupid opinions about this phone this phone is really great phone don t belive other people words se k850i will surely floppppppp nokia n series is great no other phones can compare with n series phones
it is a really best nokia i have ever seen,the only problem is some times it`s turn off automatically ,but it`s happen when i change 1gig ram to 2 gigs.the GPS is great but for navigation you have to pay it`s bad things.but i pay 100$ for 2 years navigation.it`s works well now
i got it and the phone is so good its the best thing i ever had and the battery life is so good
the only different bettween it and k850i is wi-fi
and k850i is very nice with good software
