I'm in the UK. Am interested in getting this phone, but is there really a difference between the made in Finland ones to the made in China phones? Also, where do I get the different ones from? How can you tell...
Is Vodacom going to wake up and offer this on contract / upgrade? Their Pinelands branch has never even heard of the Nokia N95... :-(
"With great features, comes cork-up handsets..." - Symbian S60 (N95)
Bought the handset on 1 April. Was impressed with the many features especially the wonderful camera / video recorder. But was abit disappointed with the speed comparing with SE phones. Though it was said to be the fastest Symbian phone up-to-date but it is still somehow slower and not as user friendly as SE. Battery life is ok managing to hold on for 2 days with minimal usage (not exceeding 2 that is!) But phone reastarts a few time already and am not really accustomed with such a big slider. Somehow.. am missing my traded-in SE K800i already.. (PS: anyone wans to buy original Nokia spare battery and Kingston 2GB micro SD?) Keke. Looking forward to SE phones... :>
Bought this phone from Bdigital today. The contents included a 1gb Memory Card, so not sure why some people here didn't get one. The phone is very responsive for a Symbian. I've taken a few shots and compared it to my K800i that I had before this and was amazed by the picture quality. So far I'm happy with this phone. I'm still getting used to the Symbian OS, luckily my brother has an N80 so he pretty much teaches me how to use it.. As for battery life.. well i haven't had a chance to notice the battery yet.. I'll post more later..
(cont from below passage..)
And i forgot to add that the care centre guys told me my contacts were lost and that they were unrecoverable -.- ===> _|_ TO YOU NOKIA!
Bought this long awaited phone and deeply regret it now. Bought it the very first day it was launched in SG on 31-Mar and just after 3 weeks, it actually drop call (for the very first time) yesterday and restart while i was talking to a customer. That afternoon itself the phone went haywire with the display orientation becoming inverted, YES it went to inverted landscape mode and inverted potrait! Plus the display was jumping between on and off always, no response at all from the buttons, EVEN when i took out the battery and restart it! Was deeply annoyed but kept telling myself maybe it was just bad luck and as i was working near suntec area i immediately send the phone in for repair in the afternoon and i specifically told the guys at the care centre to TRY recover my contacts which i did not kept a copy in my SIM card and that i needed the phone back asap for my work. Fyi i did NOTHING to the phone, no downloads no nothing and i swear it was in perfect condition within that 3 weeks usage. Late yesterday evening, someone from the care centre called my wife hp and inform me that the handset was ready for collection and i was then very glad with the efficient rendered service. So during lunch time today i went to collect the phone but i did not test it as i kept the returned battery home. The service report says "Slider Assembly Unit Spoilt" and replaced. Was only able to test it when i got home and the ultimate thing happen, THE FREAKING PHONE COULD NOT EVEN START UP! I could hear the powered-on sound but the display was showing zig zag lines and sometimes with no display at all! Was very very tremendously upset and called up the care centre. The Officer was polite enough to check on the job and while explaining halfway, the called got cut off and i was reluctant to call again as i have to go through the long waiting time listening to pre-recorded msgs before finally getting to "wait" for the attendant to pick up the phone. And as i have given my HP number right at the start while talking to the officer, i was anticipating them to call me back as i was asking on the status of the failed job. The result was disappointing for they dont even bother to call me back. Was utterly disgusted with the "Nokia" brand be it their customer service or the trust you have place in their product and services. Will be demanding the exchange of a new handset from them tomorrow and upon getting it will be selling it straight as second hand. Last but no least thxs for readiong this long passage as i have to voice out and share the bad experience else i feel bad bottling up. Lastly with no offence to others "NOKIA SUCKS"!
interesting all you people that have non us models are having issues and others with us models arent having any issues at all. nokia is cheapest at $659 they have n95 at there site now.
i have k 750i earlier which was 2 mp.but my dad bought N95.i can bet to say that quality picture is taken by k 750i is much better than N 95 5mp camera.shame to u nokia
to vk, yeah but sonys the best and im looking at replacing my desktop thats why i took interest in that model, specially cause the blueray and tv tuner, etc. got any other suggestions.....and also cant always go on bad support to not buy a high quality product
I have had the N95 for just under a week now and am totally impressed with it. For a symbian OS phone it is quite responsive, although it does have its times when it locks for a few seconds. The menus once you get used to them are easy to navigate and use. The wifi is brilliant, all we need in the Uk now is more free hotspots. I am stuck using it at home for now. The browser is fast over wifi and the ability to choose the amount of zoom for the page allows either easily read txt or a display of a full web page. The camera quality is the best I have ever seen on a phone and betters my old olympus digicam. The satnav system is near useless as it is so slow and expensive, although as I with O2 I have full uk maps and it works well as a map book. I would highly recommend the N95 to anyone looking for a great allround phone with market beating features!!!
is there any way the SMS message alert can be set to repeat until the mesage is opened?
its really a great phone but the included memory needs to increase,bcoz its a highend handset,so people would love to get atleast 1gb memory card free with it,otherwise its a great one.
thats why u need to buy made in finland phone not made in china..i had mine since friday and it crashed only ONCE on sunday and never before or after and its not wobbly or anything..most ppl who have made by nokia or made in china those crash like once atleast a day so if u bought from the beggining made in finland you would not be dissapointed
this phone is terrible, in 2 weeks i had 3 of them, phone restarts it self during calls then when it comes back on it wont transmit audio when im on a call, i have to turn it off, wait 2 mins and turn it back on, plus its so so slow. orange are refusing to give me a different phone, even when i asked within the 2 weeks, time for court me thinks
Why is the Nokia N95 not available on Vodacom? And Will there be a music edition and if so will it be available on vodacom?
can anyone tell me is the gps on this phone network dependant? or can you jsut download maps hook up to gps and if so is there still a charge? a tourist from france told me its free however if you want a talking version its 70 euro for 3 years which isnt to bad!
is that mobile good? i want to buy it but first i want to find out if it is good mobile and if the buttery it have long life.................. PLEASE ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
i have not seen how big or how small the n95 camera compare with 904sh. Anyway i will consider your point bacause my 904sh still amazing when it comes to still and video recording. thanks for the comment.. no need for me to get an n95 for time being..
Just got it this afternoon.
It is an exteremely expensive toy.
Build quality is in a word terrible for a device this expensive but ok for something far cheaper. I have a feeling the design department never met the engineering department because that slider is feeble.
But it is also a wondeful phone, the software is fast and the screen brilliant.
The verdict would be wait for the n95i or get an n93i. This is only a suggestion. though.
