I purchased this mobile a month back. Overall a good phone, except it is bit slow and battery backup is very poor.
Camera is quite good.
It is a very ugly phone but it is still a great phone ive never really like nokias and i still dont,although it has everything,its kind of a waste of space since most people wont need everything crammed into it.
there is something about GPS: you can use it without simcard, provided previously downloaded the map.
I am not normally a Nokia fan at all but this seems like a good handset. Ok the battery power is poor but the sound quality is good the camera is spot on, although a bit overkill for a phone I think but then again people may say I claim that cause my handset is 3.2MP. On the whole a well made phone which if you can cope with the power problems then would be a great buy.
I'm a Nokia die hard fan. I don't understand why people complain about the phone when u have issues with the phone why not take it back to where u bought it n get new one. This is the best phone from design to the features and i'm sure if anyone who complains get N95 with no bugs then i'm sure u will say only good things about. For me only the battery is the issue but the good thing electricity is always available. I hope anyone with the problem with this phone will be recitified soon. What i would say is N95 is the best phone available in market and around the globe. If u have money get it if not then someday u will n the price will be down.
it is not possible to use gps without a sim card because nokia maps makes use of the internet. You have to have a 3g or gprs connection for that.
About nokia maps:
I think the licenses are quite expensive and the software is everything but brilliant.
TomTom and Route 66 are still blocked. Rumour hs it that they won't be blocked on newer types (n-series perhaps as well)in the future. This would mean that you wouldnt have to buy licenses, nor need the internet; so you would be able to navigate for free.
No, it will never be possible. Nokia N95 has an OS of Symbian and cannot be reformatted. Like a pc.
i have purchase n95 yesterday.i feel n95 is not a good phone.bettery time is very low.in 24 hours i charge the phone 2times.camera is not good acording to 5mp.bluetooth is not to conect pair device.phone quality is very rough .before 95 i m use n73 its arealy v v v v good phone.bettry timing is good .camera result is exceelent.so i m very disopinted n95.all of users who buy this phone dont buy this phone.
well, i sent back my n95 two weeks ago and it's been 14 business now and i haven't gotten it back! the bluetooth won't pair up. i called them up today and they're sending me a new one... hopefully it won't be defective this time!
question... how much does the navigator costs if you buy it?
I just have a query..can we access internet making N95 as a modem on a Macintosh OS.....please reply me back my email-id.
