I work for The Carphone Warehouse, a previous comment from a cpw rep said they have had all there n95 re-called. We have not had this problem in our branch or our area. I might be down to luck but i have heard that the N95 was made but 2 differnt factorys. One in finland and the other in china. The handset from finland are perfect but the handset from china can suffer software problems. if you look at the imei number under the battery, you can see there where the handset is made. You can solve the software problem on the china handset's buy taking it to a nokia service center (e.g. Carphone Warehouse) and have the software updated for free.
I have a Nokia n95 myself with vodafone software :( but i have had no problems with it even though it has vodafone software!! The handset is great, the is really NOTHING that mobiles can do that this handset cant! From the 5mp camera, the web browser, GPS!, 3G WITH hsdpa!, 30fps video capture and a large 2.6 inch screen. This really is a great handset. I live in a poor signal area but if i could i would get it on tmobile with there web and walk package. the unlimited browsing is perfect, also the tmobile software is good. This is my experiance of the N95.
plus, does anyone know how i can increase the amount of ram on this phone? any software that will get rid of uninstalled applications that are just there taking up ram for no reason? thxs!!!
i've had the nokia n95 for about 2 months now and i've had no problems at all. the many features of this phone have come in very handy and i have the most powerful fone in my household. the only thng that are wrong wth this phone is the battery life and the lack of RAM! it comes standard with 64mb worth of ram which is quite scarce for a phone with this many features bt as soon as you boot up yhe phone, ur only left with 20mb! now that's just ridiculous! putting together a fone with just 64mb ram is just pointless and vurtually makes simple applications or even multitasking impossible! if you try and browse something over the net, and the web page is full of complex media, which most web pages do have nowerdays, then it most certainly will close! RAM is the only thing that is affecting this fone otherwise it would've been perfect, i've heard that incrasing ram would drain the battery power to the max but there's a simple answer 2 that - supply the nokia n95 with a better phone! i hope this is the last time nokia puts this low amount of ram into their high end phones because the way fone technology is advancing now, 64mb of ram will not be enough to suit our demands from our fones! so this isn't what computers have become but they aren't far off, keep on going nokia!

Hey there every1, i work in carphone warehouse in london, and our whole stock of Nokia N95's had to be sent back, not 1 of them worked, they had varying issues, this has been the worst release of a handset since i have worked, with people returning the phone, we get at least 5 handsets returned every day since the phone was released, we are actually contemplating removing it from the shelf its that bad, The N95 is a big NO GO AREA!
After testing both the E65 and E95 I will now call the E95 my next wife and will never leave Nokia. Great work. We use it for Mobile Voip and could not have dreamed a better phone.
good features but wot a ugly brick..!!!
big massive phone, cant even fit in pockets. u hav 2hold it in ur hands all times.
id rather carry a P.C around (monitor, keyboard, mouse, tower)
got this phone yesterday, it is playing up already, when you are using the music player and the phone rings the phone switches to vibrate mode for the call after - very disappointed!
Well, I've noticed John alert down there about how inferior N95 is compare to SE products and i also just want to clarify a few things. Most of us know that Nokia dominate the mobile market for the last few years and their phones are still doing greats. Nokia N series has always been the most superior class of phone on the market so far that set the standard for most modile phones out there. So in term of function, reliability and east of use, not to mention Design are all perfect on the N series. Personally, i am a samsung user and I have to say samsung havent made anything as outstanding as the N series or some of the SE. So i think i can be very fair when i comment on these two brands.
Nokia N95 has been release recently and so far most of the people and users that I've talk to who actually own one or played with one had response with great satisfaction in the product. N95 is a great unit with quadband, and compatible with all types of connection. It allow you to play different types of music media and some popular forms of video files. As if that wasnt enough, the N95 threw in tha auto focus 5mp as bonus and internal gps system that can navigate quite well for a phone. Design are quite interesting and the ease of use are very satisfying. As for the body of the phone, it have a very well study built, yes study built. It havent made any racketing noises and weird sounds like some people claim that it made on my friends N95. If you are afraid of strange noises on your phone, then i would like to suggest you check your phone before buying it. To me, when I tested it the phone was great. If it feel slugglish in function by any chance, maybe some of you didnt turn off all the extra applications you have opened. The more applications running at once the slower the phone will be (like a computer right?). The other functions on these phones are very convenience and i find the phone exceptionally entertaining. It works with majority of the services like cingular, tmobile and so on. I havent heard anyone who used the aN95 complaining about the phone freezes and turn off by itself unless it is out of battery. Some said it have bad battery life, well i would like note that the N95 does have a 2.6in screen (if you check majority of the other phones that are over 2.5inches screen they all have pretty bad battery life). Not only that, the N95 play all sort of things, if you buy this phone and constantly using it for mp3 and video and gps throughout the WHOLE day then please expect the battery to run out, nothing can take that much heavy duty work, so with that big of a screen and that much function, i think the N95 does a GOOD job with the 6.5 hours talk time =). Over all i think its a superb phone and the built and functions are all great.
Now lets see SE. SE have been doing the same design over and over again, BAR phone. I do admit some SE are great. However, some SE have problem with their phones. Ive try several of them and it turn out some are fine, some are frozen after a while. SE try so hard to make their navigation screen pretty that it caused the device to freeze often. I've been hearing complain about it with the W800 and K series. SE also out all their best units on a phone just trying to make it sell. things such as Cybershot, walkman model, and so on. I think its great that they put those in to the phone as bonus but seriously, against a 5mp, they are seriously messing with the wrong phone. I think sony have great sound for a phone, and the style look a lot like a camera and thats very impressive. but it would be nice to get out of the bar form once in a while. Internal gps would be nice and maybe some more connection compatibility. If what john said about SE releasing after Nokia is true, then that would make me think SE is just another company that try to imitate another brand that is successful, but i try not to go there since I believe sony is a good company that can come up with some sophisticated design on their own. Sony got a study built body and i like that. The phone is compact and not too large with fairly nice weight. The screen and navigation is nice. The menu are fairly simple to use and the camera are quite impressive if compared with other 2mp camera. Wifi has been something new to SE and they dont seem to support that a lot. Same to audio and video files compatibility as well. But over all i think SE is a great middle class phone. Its fun to use and battery life is slightly a bit more than N95 but with a small screen and not a lot of function to play with, i guess its okay because it does cost cheaper than the high class N95.
Over all, both phone are superb but in preference, i would rather own an N95 than the Sony series. N95 is now known as the world most high tech and sophisticated Multimedia device as of now, so i think that title wasnt given to the N95 for no reason.
know about this phone..
and please post ur opinion
hey all the people that are saying the phone is to big and chunky you must be blind its skinny as maybe not super skinnky like the razor but still preetyy thin ^_^
Can anyone tell me if all the features work properly when used on the Fido network in Canada?
i think it is almost perfect except for no xenon flash like SE to tk gd pics at nite...
excellent sound clarity and wowful 5 mp camera it is the king of all mobiles thank u nokia
i guess its a good device but with that price i can bye a 10 m.p cam with good mobile with gprs device and all r prof ,,i preffer se bc it delevers a great props with suitable price ..
John alert---Nokia may have Java but still some games you can not play in Nokia as u can in SE also the Auto Focus of SE is better then Nokia as it can capture text as well and gives very clear picture if you want to check just compare it with SE K800i pics and you will know what am i talking about also Nokia despite in the market for many years, its market share, new inovations etc is still struggling with the low power battery. You tell me how good is N95 ? very good indeed but with fuctions like these it should last longer in battery life, Also the Physical Quality of Nokia is decreasing with every future model you can compare N80 with N95 and will see the diff, but SE Quality is still good i can feel the solid K800 in my hand also i have SE-K800i, W850i,W810i and Nokia-N70 & N95 and i have checked these products in detail i really hated Nokia before but after the launch of N95 i changed my mind its very gud but still battery prob, hangs some times, restarts by itself, disturbance when using with BT headphones also its not made correctly because you can see scratches just above the number "3" button of every N95 caused by opening and closing of the slider Now tell me what do you have to say abt Nokia and yea its Sliding mechanism is also very cheap and not good like Samsung and SE, i think its the time Nokia should start thinking what they r doing.
