I have Nokia 3230 and Navicore maps. The GPS receiver is external and the receiver is connected to the phone via bluetooth. First I thought there is a problem with the battery (shorter stand-by and talk time than for N95), but then I learned to use the power saving mode, i.e. the display is turned off when not needed. No problems whatsoever since. I am sure the battery in N95 is quite ok!
I was just wandering when you take videos with the phone what format does it use?
battery problems is salved if you carry extra battery , the phone gets slow only when you install multiple java games . the phone is fast solid good battery better then n80
if you are looking for 10 h mp3 playback get the n73 .
As far as i am concerned, i have read thru all ya opinionns
My analysis is :
1. I judge phone my how fast it is and whether it disappoints or not
so far : 75/77% of ya'll arent happy with the speed
2. The features of the phone is stunning, i kinda guessed the processor for the n95 is too low to get the applications running
Well,whats da point of having a sweet phone if u cant use it at the best/most time u needed it, needless to say, whats da point of having it when u know battery life gonna mess u up .
Am just gonna keep chilling with ma e61(gat navigator/wireless connection/good sound/blackberry connection though no camera) n wait for the nokia communicator or maybe N95i --- u all know what nokia can be like. I m out!
N95 is the best phone on the market and Räikkönen will win F1 today! ;)
I just buy this phone and this is worse phone i ever used. The battery life is only last for half day (for my use)but motorola can last for nearly 2 days (for same kind of use)Symbian OS as normal slow and s**k.5 megapixal camera good but the stereo sound for music player is worse than N73 eventhough there is dual speaker.If i want to buy this phone only for GPS system than i think there is lot of good choice in market nowdays.Again Nokia try to win a F1 race without enough fuel for the F1 car.For Nokia designers...please use your head to design phone not your toe...cant you people understand that without enough power how we (customer) will use your so called smart phone...be awake and dont sleep while design a phone.
guys, do you know where the PTT (push to talk) function is? In the usr guide and the help menu of the phone it says it is under tools, but it is not there. I also checked every menu and did not find it. Any ideas?
In other words, you can PRELOAD the maps onto your memory card. Then you can use the maps, GPS and stuff without any connection to service providers...
"You can preload maps to your mobile device by using the Nokia MapLoader PC tool."
Nokia MapLoader is a quick, uncomplicated PC solution that allows you to download maps from the Internet and install them onto selected mobile devices. Just select one of the regions available, download the maps, transfer them onto your memory card or mobile device and start exploring the world!
1 Use Nokia Maps on your Nokia N95 before installing MapLoader
2 Download and install Nokia MapLoader to your PC.
3 Follow the instructions in the MapLoader application.
Compatible with: Nokia N95.
Compatible with: Windows XP.

i saw sum egg head posting comments about GPS service doesnt rely on the network... but i recommend that person do abit more research, or perhaps ask a few more questions before stating such a misleading comment. This phone is similar to a Toshiba 904T, the integrated GPS doesnt support mapping softwares, rather, it connects itself to the service provider, with the data signal that it collects from the satellite for real-time mapping service.
um confused here..
between N95 or O2 Zinc??
Please Help meee...
Which one is better inside out??
It's true that the only downsize so far is the battery life where you have to charge it everyday.
To 2SNF who said "GPS works only in urban areas and even in semi urban areas its full of bugs."
dude, are you smoking pot?
GPS does not rely on the phone network at all. In fact, it would would better in the middle of the Sahara Desert compared to in the middle of London
this shows that people are making bad comments about the phone without even owning it. you don't even know how GPS works!!
Great specs and promise but the truth is the phone does not deliver!I emailed nokia about the constant reboots and was 'treated' to this reply:STABILITY is still an issue with this handset, and so when the handset is over-loaded with applications running, it may turn off or restart itself, simply use one application at a time.WHAT A FARCE.
I read an opinion talking about 64 channels that n95 have. Do you mean that this phone dont support songs of atleast 128 or which bit rate I like to use 192???? Well that if the oppinion of this person meant that.
What do you guys think, should i buy a E61i now and later the N95 becuz i want the price to drop. Or should i straight away get the N95 with the normal high price?
The Wireless LAN in NOKIA N95 DOES NOT disconnect easily, it is stable and detects even weak signals
This is my 3rd update:
More good things about the phone:
1/wireless LAN is stronger, better and more stable than the one in Nokia N80. It does disconnect that easily and detects very weak signals, very impressive.
2/The menu system and navigation through the sub menus is smooth, fast and gives more options
3/Took 3 photos using it's Flash in COMPLETE PITCH BLACK DARKNESS and the photos are great, never was expecting that from it, because it does not have a Xenon flash like the SE K800i, but even though, the pictures were very good in complete darkness.
Fantastic Phone EVA!!! got my yesturday and works soooo smoothly, im so impressed worth every dollar i spent!! All i can say, GOD AMONGST ALL PHONES!! and thats why Nokia is the best brand of all times!!!
