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!!!
THE phone! It has almost everything you need!!! Great display, GPS, super camera, Symbian OS, yess music player, ...!
the n95 is the best not seen any phone come close to it the navigation is heavy internet speed is rapid not to big in size exellent camera 1 of a kind
Update to my last opinion, I managed to do a MASTER reset and return the phone to it's ORIGINAL Factory settings, just as if i had turned the phone on for the first time, and have solved the problem of the corrupted file that I had.
I have realised that the cause of this crash was a corrupt MP3 file that I have which works fine on my PC but when i copied and pasted it on 2 separate micro sd's (1Gb that came with the phone and a 512mb that i already had) the music library froze and I had to turn the phone off and on, so I have to find the secret to this corrupt MP3 file that I have which is very strange!?
Now my N95 works fine and I had to let you all know as being part of my honest opinion, but still the battery life is not so good.
can anyone tell what's the price of this cell in europe uncoded on a certain network?
I just ordered my cell which will come next week and I was told that you still need to trickle charge the battery for 16hrs is this correct if yes why have nokia not improved there battery's.
this phone audio sucks,its too low .Apart from that its a great phone and i totally understand nokias marketing concept,they just cant make the "PERFECT" phone or their other high end phones will just not sell.its pretty obvious
Updating what happened to me:
I did a MASTER RESET (COMPLETE FACTORY RESET) as i was lucky looking on the internet in the Nokia N95 forums and found the code which is:
*#7370# and then it returns it as the first day you bought it, not like the reset which is present in the phone which was the superficial reset, then used another micro sd card that i had, 512mb instead of the 1Gb that came with the phone (nokia micro sd) and it can work songs to the music library now and it was all the fault of that crappy nokia 1gb supplied micro sd card !!! can you believe that! and i was just about to return it to O2 !!!
I am still in the understanding that using the maps (if downloaded to PC and installed on N95)are free. As an OPTIONAL service you can use voice navigation. Depending on the service you have this might cost a bit. In other words, using the GPS with downloaded maps shouldn't cost anything if you not need the voice navigation?!
Nokia Maps is a free tool for selected mobile devices which allows you to download maps, making it easy to locate interesting places or just find where you want to go.
"Nokia Maps also offers more than just a simple map service. You can share the location of specific places with your friends and plan routes between two places. As optional services, Nokia Maps features a fully-fledged navigation system and valuable city guides with loads of great information."
OMG!!! This is the best phone in the world bar none!!! I will do ANYTHING to get my hands on it...
