oh. by the way i did not need to buy maps or use gprs, cos i had no sim card in phone when i used gps for 4 hours, only need to buy voice guidence as said in review. if you dont believe me try it. also do not load too many apps as it slow down da phone and try saving on ur sd card if it came with phone as mine did.
live in south africa, gps works great and used it a few times,very accurate.battery lasted 4 hrs using gps only.solved the battery life by getting a car charger.awesome phone. only one problem, after one month sent phone in for repairs cos display started going off and on, then it started distorting screen, then it distorted screen and turned it upside down. still waiting for phone to come back, missing it and very irritated.
the nokia n95 is great not only is it a party peice but the awy it all works wih out a fault makes it a 10/10 choice 1 down side tho...battery life
Thank you for that.
WOW 20x's Dam.
well maybe cause my lg right nw only has 2x.
Finally bought it! This phone is awesome. the multimedia capabilities made me switch from SE to Nokia. People who are comlpaining about the battery life were right. HOWEVER, it is still not as bad as i have read in some of the comments. Think about it, if u are using "so many features" at once how can u expect it to last even a day?
Im just installing the maps right now n den ima see how the gps works.
hi i wana know N95 slide is same like N80 or like D500???
i mean too say it slide up very fast or need too slide up till end ?
the gps does not work without internet conection even if you have installed the maps.
you need internet conection to use gps, right???????
i can not access to gps
Hey guys, I am the same guy who came here about a month ago reviewing this phone that i just bought after months of deciding. I was so happy with the phone. It was great. The honeymoon stopped quick fast. This phone was so dissapointing after a month of use that I finally sold if last night for the same price. I am so happy its sold. Its a phone thats TOO expensive to be this flimsy and not solid. I can live with that. This phone is very buggy, crashes a lot or more like freeezes a lot. I can live with that. This phones software even after an upgrade of the firmware is very slow compared to other phones. I can live with that. HOWEVER, the battery life...oh my god....its horrendous. Took it to my freinds house to see if GPS could help me find his new house, the battery was half dead by the 10 minutes that the GPS was on. If you use wifi or talk a little bit, you are constantly worrying if your phone will die while you are out and away from yyour charger. My girlfreind asked a good question, what good is a phone if you cannot use it? its true, you cant use it, cause its going to die soon, you are always worried. I am not going to travel with my charger all the time or a spare battery. it defeats the purpose of have an all in one device like the N95 is branded. People might disagree, i dont care, its my opinion. I didnt buy a 900$ phone to use it at home or in the office next to a charger. I already have landline phones I can use there and the internet. Its when I am OUT and away that a phone is most needed.
Anyways if you anyone is one the fence, Just wanted to say that its not worth it sadly. I tried desperately to love it. I even bought it and used it for a month to give the benefit of the doubt but finally had to give it up. Its got a LOT of amazing abilities and the camera really is good. But what good is a camera or gps when you are afraid of how long it will make your phone run before you are stuck with a dead phone in your hands when you are out and about. Not much.
Hope it helped someone. If not you can take it as it is. Move on to the next message.

The Front fascia is easily changed by undo the 2 screws at the top then slide down for bottom 2 then remove the microphone from the fascia an put it in new one,also easy to change is part round turn on buttom by just undo the 2 screws an swapping the parts round,the Back of the Fascia just pulls of easily to access the back an the screws to undo,i have not tried replacing the slider yet but it looks easy to change as well hope this helps
got n95 two days ago, damn good fone. i've been checking on net about comments and reviews and been reading about this fone being slow, crashing etc. but nothing on my device. its working perfectly fine, and comparing it to my n73 and w950i, i dont think its slow at all. but it might be for the fact that i have not yet installed any apps on it coz darn orange, they did'nt sent it with a micro sd card, am gonna have to buy one
To Dazzi_9: the N95 has digital zoom 20*. There is no optical zoom. Check N93 or N93i for OZ. I guess the N95 would have cost too much and weighed more if Nokia had implemented OZ. I am hoping that soon Nokia will make a candy bar shaped high spec N-series phone which includes OZ WLAN and QWERTY. As the 8800 has shown: no matter the cost there will always be buyers. Samsung F700 and HTC TyTN are great designs.
The n95 is not aimed at professional buisnessmen!Have you noticed the keypad!Erm maybe wannabe professionals would have an n95 but certainly not guys that have to use word,excel CAD and so on.Reality check is needed!
how can i use the internet or send sms
if i open the phone on the side of media player.
Just picked one up last week, and hated it for the first day. I had just come from using a Sony Ericcson z800i, and couldn't for the life of me work out the menu system. Now I've got the hang of it, I realise that the n95 is a very powerful tool. It is aimed at businessmen, and has a lot of handy apps if you're in that field. The camera takes sharp, bright photos. The GPS is a bit sketchy, and doesn't pick up sattelites anywhere near as well as a real GPS reciever, but works in most cases. It comes boxed with everything you need, and I mean everything. You get a microSD (1GB), AV-RCA cables, remote audio controller, earphones, screen protector, USB cables and really neat faux leather case. Reccommended for everyone who loves cutting edge tech. A slight disappointment is the gallery is slow to react, and Nokia STILL has Realplayer. This program is sketchy, slow and freezes constantly. Other than that, a great phone.

And once again the N series phones let the good name of nokia down, i mean how hard is it to realise that if you put too much software into a phone it cant handle it and will crash all the time. Ive tried all the N series phones and they have all had the exact same problem.
PLEASE READ People who are looking forward to buy this phone for 5MG Pix camera and GPS please don't buy it coz i used it for 2months and sold it in 487$ with all acc in it.this phone has very low quality buttons.side buttons are very hard to press.and whenever you want to dial a number or type a msg camera button will always get pressed and its very irritating. Radio output is very BAD. speakers are not that good enough. GPS you will have to buy all the maps through your GPRS and price will depend on which country you looking for.In my life soo many mobiles i have used and took care of them like my life but never of those a single scratch had come and this cell joysticks chrome started chipin off. The make is really like a 50$ phone. Now i've taken n93i and its really really WORTH. than n95.
this N95 release version is even worse than the dire beta's i was sent by Nokia the screen is grainy,the camera worse than 5140i,the sat nav looks like a toddlers attempt at a map drawing done with crayons that are older than time...it really is a poor attempt at a middle of the road phone..nokia i expected better especially after my reviews of the beta's...mobilephonefanclub open to all who are legit we meet at gawber church hall wednsday at 7 and after service on sunday!!!
