I'm dying to add a comment here! I gotta admit when I first got this phone for upgrade at end of April, I told everyone its probably the best phone you'll ever use in your life (and I still think so to this day, u gotta admit it is) and I wouldn't let anyone say a bad word against it. the second day after i got it, the gps was taking ages to connect so i took it to the shop where the store manager said give it 24hrs after you pay the £40 charge to nokia then it'll work fine as "he had the same problems" i thought fine. and then it worked.
ok, now ive had it about a month n a half, n i see why so many ppl complain about it. i dont even bother use the gps now its just hopeless, and when it does connect, it gives wrong directions as it so slow, especially if you're driving over 50mph on the A12! The slide is too loose, the battery is TERRIBLE, oh my god, and that bloody symbian operating system that the N series swears by needs a makeover, its such a slow operating system.
All in all, fantastic phone, if you want a superb camera, video recording, excellent music quality, wi-fi and a host of other small features, also most downloadable due to the symbian-ness and working for Carphone Warehouse i would still recommend it, but if you're buying it mainly for the fact the it has all those features AND with the benefit of built-in GPS, then your best option (and cheapest) would be maybe a 3.2mp camera phone like the Sony Ericsson K800i/K810i Samsung U600 etc BUT buy a stand alone satnav unit... which if you go to carphone warehouse our cheapest one is on sale now for only £99.99 (a lot less than the £40-£50mth line rental per month for 18mths required for purchase of the N95!!)
hey guys, any solution for the very weak battery of this mobile?? i heard that the battery of E90 is compatible with N95 and it has 1500mAh so.. is this true??
n95 is top phone,but there are some n95 from dubai and china who are not good and thats why the price from 800euros came to 650 euros,be carfeul when you by one.
"Do not fix the slider yourself as you will invalidate any warranty you have on the handset. TAke it to a repair centre who will fix it for you."
Why should i have to send a brand new $1000 Nokia N95 in for repairs? I shouldn't have a loose slider in the first place. I want a COMPLETELY NEW ONE IN THE BOX.
yo kool fone but ugly as hell , get 8800 looks good and that really all u need i been usin these n95 and k800 fones and stuff but not worth it u need to llook good too
I have been on the waiting list for 2 months now, after all this I have still not received it and the service provider is telling me that 50% of the phones he has supplied have already been returned???? I now have a simpler Sony Erricson, pity I really fanced the N95!!!!!

my n 95 arrives on wed. i will post an honest opinion within 2-3 days . my phone has been bought via t mobile direct. some of your problems could be a result of dubious origins. watch this space.
Everyone's complaining about bad battery life.. yeah true it does have a bad battery life.... Alloooo??? due to it's sophisticated functions and gadgets found inside? nothing would last long with these specs...
everyone complaining is a heavy user of mobile phones... meaning they use to talk, take pictures, msging, wat else. of course the bat won't last.. and while saying other brands are best at battery life.. please dun compare until other brands have actually built in so many things which this N95 have in their phones.. i'm sure their batt won't last much either..
it's good that i returned my money with that shait.. sat nav u can't compare with normal gps material like pda where u can use profesional soft tomtom copilotand ect. for exsample XDA orbit i had after wards and i'm much more happy with gps.. another thing camera don't have normal flash and u can compare with any other camera who has 5MP (I think some 3.2mp can do better work from SE group, software i had some times was resterting because not able to deal with applications who use more resurces like wireless or games and ect. (another thing one of my mates returned to the shop because was making noise from the speaker when on stand by) so the phone is to weak for all that features as well as the battery is useless.. I think this phone is just trial to see all the gaps with new generation phones.. enjoy unfinished product.. keep it foolish
Guys, do u think this phone is worth of buying? On my mind, I'm planning to buy N95 or N93i.. Which one is worth to buy??
Please help me with this.
Thanks in advance..
Radio sound level of the N95,from loudspeakers,is very low. Do you know how to increase it? When you compare with N73 or N70 you can notice it..

I have had the N95 for 3 months now an had no problems at all,after upgrading the firewall its alot better,i bought a cover for it an the back comes off easily as i did not like the silver an plum colour together,buy a crystal case all you who have the N95 an you will get no damage or dust on o the screen,theres loads of fakes on Ebay so keep your eye on what the seller is offering for sale as those Chinese people do it all the time an sell them over here an love ripping the public off!
