Like I said before...Time will show that I was right. (FYI, I did buy one -> it had the loose slider problem ->then I sent it back and got another -> that one had the problem too -> I lost my confidence in the product)
I have decided to wait for till nokia fixes the problem totally OR maybe they'll produce a N95i some day which will probably be a MUCH better phone in terms of construction and (of course) features and software as nokia will learn from their N95 mistakes and will make sure that the N95i will not follow the same trend.
I believe they bit off more than they could chew with the N95.
fyi george you say why would you want to get a phone fixed when its brandnew, it shouldnt have any problems, cause nobodys perfect and brandnew electronics or brandnew merchandise on anything can be defective or something happened that the manufacturer didnt plan on happening worlds not perfect so thats why they have the warranty......they try to make perfect but things happen
ok george, then dont buy the n95 and go buy something you do like and want to talk about on another phone, as your not right. but if you want to be told that, than sure your right.
"also george if anyone does have issues that need to be fixed that aren't fixable from the support site at nseries.com than its called its covered and fixed under warranty"
Why would someone have to fix a brand new phone? If i buy a new n95 and i go home and open the box and find a loose slider, i would want a totally new one the next day in a sealed box. I don't want to send in my new phone in for repairs after just 1 day. You will find more and more loose slider mentions as time goes by. Time will show that i am right.
also george if anyone does have issues that need to be fixed that arent fixable from the support site at nseries.com than its called its covered and fixed under warranty
well you update the firmware it resolves any issues you were having, also to george the slider issue is only on some here and there not all and no over time it wont start happening to the ones who dont have the issue as i have one since it came out and no problems with anything.....
thanks for the feedback... i still don't know what to get.. i need to try the N95 first before i make my decision... :) E90 looks nice too but its big!:(
Not sure whether N95 will be able to stand against iPhone which is coming to the market next month.
WARNING TO ALL!
Fact! The Nokia N95 has a construction fault that causes the slider to rattle between the two parts when opened to reveal the keypad.
The problem appears on 3 out of every 100 handsets on purchase. However, a further 23 out of every 100 will develop the problem over time.
Nokia will never announce this problem publicly as the cost or replacing all returned phones will be too high for them.
However, i have to admit, for the luck ones who will not suffer from this construction fault - enjoy it, for it IS the greatest phone on the market, and will be for a long time coming.
I am unable to reveal my source as it will give away my personal identity.
can i update my firmware through the pc? what are the improvements and bad things? i got the new firmware at nokia europe...
can i update my firmware throw my pc safley or should go to my retailer
excellent for all youth
phone itself proves that it is the next generation phone and no other brand will equalise it......phone with advanced technologies which cannot be used by normal person and has one disadvantage that is battery life is very low and last for 1 day,i think nokia losing their standards these sort of problems has to be taken care shortly otherwise stop the production and shut the company
hi all.. i've been holding the N95 for 6 days since last sat (as my bdae gift).. i would say i am v satisfied with the phone, features and looks.. just one drawback.. the battery life is a wee bit too short.. if the battery life can b longer... it'll be the puuuuurrrrrrfect phone!
