Hey Marcus (and other readers)
I have major problems with ur comment.
Firstly, camera is superb. my N95 focuses perfectly and photos are crisp! There are no black spots in any of my pics.
The very first time i used the maps it locked onto the sattelites within 30 sec! and it does each time! (ps- i live in South Africa).
I have no bugs in my Maps at all. AND--- THE MAP DOES ROTATE ITSELF TO THE DIRECTION OF MOTION during either simulation or navigation.... do a double check on that one.
No need at all to restart the phone. It restarted itself only 1ce (the day i got) because i left a few apps open.
PS: i stil have the old firmware.
In conclusion, the phone is fantastic. Ive never had so much fun with any cellphone ever. It works gr8 and i recommend it to every1.
Initially in your phone there are no maps at all. Only the Globe. You have to load them from the net. You need WLAN connexion when you just surf to Manila and it loads that map automatically into your phone.
The other possibility is to download in your PC a program from this site: http://www.smart2go.com/en/download
A hint: read your manual, it's usefull.
Iam still hoping that,there good soul around to help me on my n95 problem.i cannot utilized my GPS since no Asia Maps on my unit.Anyone of u out there to give Asian Maps (Metro Manila in Particular)
The phone its self is a technological marvel of the modern world,everything you could want in once device. However there are a few points to note
The multimedia keys that are revealed when slid open are very awkward to press,most of the time you have to really force your finger onto them to get them to work,and if you have big fingers you have no chance of easily pressing these. The slide mechanism its self is very tacky not worth the money when you consider the rest of the phones features. On the whole a good phone just though id point out these couple of details
First of all - I regret buying that phone.
Camera is good, colors, contrast, but - focusing is from the deep and what a heck is that black spot middle of screen? It shows on taken pictures as well. Built in GPS but cannot save coordinates in taken photo!
GPS takes several mins to lock on satellites, sometimes even 10mins! Once it's done that it works fine and eg. after long tunnel it finds sats again in couple of secs.
There are few bugs in the Maps application. When you plan route "on foot" mode it turns it "by car" mode. You cannot pick up a Landmark from Category list. When using map without navigation, u know, just following it, other gps's turn the map automatically to direction of motion - N95 does not.
And it's better to turn off & restart that contraption at least once a day. All those bugs make it to run slowly.
We have to complaint about these bugs - maybe - only God knows - Nokia will supply us updates - for free ofcourse!
n95 is a gud phone n vy cool phone but then the design could be done better
hello guys, i got my n95 and to begin with sometimes on the internet it would say memory full, now it wont even let me start up the internet saying memory full any ideas, muchly apreciated, jenny x x x
out of the N70, N80 and N90 the N90 is by far the fastest and best looking phone. camera is awesome, it contains everything you'll need and things you'll never need such as a barcode reader. 4.5/5 missing the 0.5 due to the pathetic battery life, lucky to last half a day with bluetooth on constantly...
Hey do you guys know how to use the IM application of the N95? i don't know the proper settings of common IMs such as that of yahoo...do you guys know what SERVER NAME and WEB ADDRESS i should key in?
Hi all, can any1 tell me if i can use a digital cam Sony cybershot as web cam???mail me on email@example.com thnx, cheers
how come it wont let me download MSN messenger or yahoo messenger..help pls
this phone last for 23 hours. i was really disapponting about the battery life of this phone. i was always charge and charge. i didn't even enjoy for 2 or 3 days standby. i really hate the battery life. Nokia ! please make your battery long lasting......
It' s awesome cell phone!The best ever!But it doesn't have DVB-H TV broadcast receiver and it has low stand by!I have n80 and i don' t need the gps at this time!So i won't buy it!Maybe the next one!
no some people getting hold of an expensive phone supersedes the basic fact that no gadget is perfect. this phone may have gotten good reviews because the features packed into it are amazing. but then, there goes the question about nokia's never-ending legacy of software glitches in all of its N-series phones. i still want to get the N95 because it has everything that you would "need", but I'd rather wait a couple of months. by that time, nokia should have figured out a proper software update to avoid or at least minimize software crashes.
Does the N95 support 2gb cards simply because that was the biggest card size at the time of the announcement? If bigger cards will be released in the future, 4 or 8gb (unless they are already here...) would the N95 see those too?
Answer to Grover,
on how to watch live tv on the N95.
You can send live tv to www from your own pc, if you connect your satellite-tuner to a video-in card in your pc, of preferred type Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-500 MCE, you will then need Windows Media Center operative system on your pc. Your pc will need to be connected to internet via broadband, with at least 250 kilobitspersecond upload capacity.
You will also need to install the ORB program on your pc, of version 1, or v1.1, to make it work with your Hauppauge-TV-card. Not version 2.0.
Then you login on the www.ORB.com website using the web explorer on your N95, and then you can choose between all TV-channels from your satellite-tuner and videos and music on your pc-harddrive as well, and connect to a Live tv-stream, the delay of the stream can be about 20 seconds, but that's still as good as Live-TV unless you get sms message that says GOAL from someone that watches same match live on tv :) The quality is very very good. You can then watch Live-TV on your N95, that is any channel from your own satellite tuner, from everywhere in the world where there is at least GPRS coverage, but minimum edge-connection is preferred. Then you can look forward to read your mobile phone bill next month. Can cost like 50$ for unlimited use, with a flat data rate. If not flat data download rate, then it can cost 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of your own countrys currency. Good luck.
