Somebody mentioned SE K850 here? I at first payed interest to it too. But after reading all the specs lost any interest. It lacks GPS, WiFi, Quality Carl Zeiss optics...the design is very mediocre. Sure many will buy it too, but it`s like they will gor for Honda, rather than Lexus. You wanna save money stick to SE. You wanna get a taste of LUXURY-Nokia N95 is the answer!!! Period!
I have been using this phone for over a week and I have had no issues with it what-so-ever. I can easily say that this is the best phone i have ever owned (even after owning phones like p990i).
Some of the opinions i have read in here are absolutely false. Things like "phone takes 2 to 4 mins to start". Gimme a break! Im sure u dont even own the phone and u are just making things up.
Camera application takes a "few" secs to start up and save the pics but it is because the camera quality and resolution is set to the maximum and that takes the phone about 5 secs to process and save the pic.
As for the battery life, I read something somewhere and I actually found it useful. Its in the manual too. Plug in ur home charger into the wall, then plug in the other end into the phone. after few secs disconnect the charger's end from the phone itself (leave it plugged in the wall) and the put it back in. Im not sure what that does but so far it has helped me improve the battery life up to almost 2 days. Check it out and im sure it will help a lot of u.
once again dont "hate" something which u have never owned urself. cheers!
great phone the phone looks very stylish and great the cam is very good
when some one call me in n95
the phone pring the number and name of the call id
its best to be only the name
I,m using this phone for six days and I cannot recommend anyone to get this one.
Trust me this phone have lots and lots of faults.
1- Are u ready to put the phone into the charger and wait every single day.
2-After power on wait for 3-4 minutes.I,m sure if u install few applications u have 2 wait 4 more than 4 minutes. Other nokia N series phones r also slow but this one, l dont understand.......
3- Camera application too slow.
There is no point I can get even if buy or not this expensive phone but l recommend u 2 wait for sonyericsson k850 that will kill N95...
TRUST ME ON THIS....
You guys are letting nokia off the hook!Your comparing scenario's from motor cars-in a completely wrong way:Here-how would you feel if you bought a bmw with a petrol tank that could only hold 3gallons?that's what it's like owning an n95
Very disappointing, the N95's 5-mega pix camera is dreadful, my 7 year old Sony 2mpix is better than that!! Ok I'll be fair the video wasn't bad. The build quality of the phone is appalling, the back falls off, the battery literally falls out, the slide has so much play in it that pocket dirt and all other crap will fill it no time. I really couldn't believe I needed to charge it daily and that was with nothing running!! It was slow to start, completely un-user-friendly, manual was crap and didn't even come with any maps!! Then I found out that I had to pay for GPS!!! The last straw was after copying my vast contacts list from my sim card, there was no way I could access it either in sim or memory. Was I supposed to copy contacts list elsewhere?...did I get a choice?...certainly not! Obviously designed by students but credit to them on their first work experience assignment!!
Sniper well said, SPOT ON. I used my mother in laws slk brabus and had to put £120 in petrol but the car is lovely. I own a honda hrv not as nice but good on petrol. I use my N95 for talkin, text, wifi & gprs browsing games downloading etc and route 66 with internal gps when I go on the odd local installation and it still last me the best part of the day. I love this phone I cant believe how good it really is and I only paid £100 offline + £20 for unlocking it brand new
i have used loads of nokia fones, starting from 5110 till the latest n95. i have been reading these opinions here even before i got the handset and could'nt beleive that nokia would make such a crappy handset as most of the guys here, claim it to be. so i got it anyways. and to tell you the truth, i dont understand how did these guys concluded its a crap fone????
this is by far one fone which has all the features that you can really think of in present day fones. and therefore, the battery is not that good. but point that matters is, if you are getting a bmw or a merc, you cant be worried about how many miles does it goes in a litre.you are gonna buy it for looks, comfort and above all possibly for show off.
converted for dummies: the n95 has so many features that battery has got to be weak, you will have to charge it daily if you want to use the handset to its full extent. and why whine about that as well?? unless we are living in a third world country where electricity is luxury or we love our fone so much that we gotta keep it by our pillow when we sleep, we can always put it to charge when we go to bed!! what does it has to do anyways while you are asleep?
now about symbian, it may have been buggy for you, but i think it is quite good as well, the support that you have online for this os is just awesome. how many third party softwares can you download for a motorola phone??? or a samsung for that matter??
i can go on and on for very long but then the gsmarena guys might block me on charges of spam. but to summarize, n95 might lack some things, but overall nokia has done a great job
excellent phone iam using this mobile since 3 months till now i had not faced any problems with this phone the cam is very very very very great
This phone suffers from over-hype. It is, for the average user, too complicated and slow. It takes 8 seconds to set up a camera shot....by which time the action has long gone.
The GPS is extortionately expensive and relies on poor C20 maps.
Worst of all is the cumbersome menu and the achingly slow software.This phone was obviously designed by Geeks after much navel gazing and little market research.
Why, in this day and age must we have to spend hours (literally) loading in codes to set up every function?
Come on Nokia, stop taking the public for a ride and supply a well thought out "plug and play" phone that meets our needs and not your marketing vanity.
n 95 is is a really wonderful phone it is all in one multimedia device se k850i doesn t have these sexy features like n95 n95 s desgin is very attractive and excellent altough it has many features it is small it is a multimedia computer the cam is wowful n95 is the king no other phone can competete with this great mobile thank s to nokia
I bought this phone, and refund 2 days after, why?
Wireless LAN has a range of 3 cm
Camera not much better than my K800i
GPS is charged and is not user friendly
Phone crashed 6 times in 2hours of uses
Dual slide is a gimmick
best video record I seen in a phone
Thank you! :)
All these people who keep compairing Nokia N95's to Sony Ericsson's are just silly. You cant compair the two. The N95 is a all in one multimedia device. It does abit of everything! It might not do these things very well but it cant be called 'just' a camera phone, which is all Sony Ericsson make. Its true that a sony ericsson may be easier to live with, and more practical, but it terms of technology, nokia are years ahead of SE. The N95 is for people who want to live in the 21st century. Trying new technology, despite being unproven. SE make phones for people who like simplicity.
just before i purchase this can anyone say wether its on par or better or worse than the n80 battery,getting it on vodafone as upgrade thankx
lets face it guys, nokia was the best before. i was a nokia fan. nokia cant even get the battery to last. the n95 is a better phone if only it was stable. if 8/10 ppl who has the phone complain about it, then we must go with whats logical. the k850 doesnt have all the features the n95 has, but whats the point of having all these stuff on ur phone but not able to use it. anywayz ppl from south africa let us hear what u have to say.
hey!! lets look forward for the upcoming k850i so no no no no dont comment if you havent got one to compare it with!! if you havent got n95 dont comment on this,this is only for n95 opinions.....so
K850i vs n95
(are you ready to rumble?)
* no known GPS *doesnt use xenon
ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC
!lets just wait for it till it comes out!
NOKIA vs. SE
Hi, I have had a lot of phones from nokia, most recently, I was using a Nokia N80 and a Nokia N73. I've been using my N95 for about a week now and aside from the weak battery life, it is an excellent phone. I think that it's incomparable to the other mobile phones that have been cited here. It's not even in the same league. The N95 is in a level of its own and while it does have some quirks, it still does not outweigh the pros. So for those of you thinking about buying this, go ahead :-) you won't be disappointed.
