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...
I have an orange account and they upgraded me to a N95 - but only after I requested a pac No
This is my honest review regarding Nokia N95:
I got the phone 3 days ago Brand new and sealed via an O2 upgrade, and it has the latest firmware version on it, so let me tell you the good things:
1/fantastic screen size and colour
2/awesome stereo sound from the speakers
3/calling sound quality is great
4/very nice slide mechanism
5/great improvements in the software regarding speed and new functions
6/great camera quality and great video quality
BAD THINGS :
1/battery very bad , after a first time 12 hour full charge, it only lasted about 7 hours (9:00am till 4:00pm), but i did use it for a 25 min call, used bluetooth for 30 minutes for file transfers, took some photos and heard a couple of songs, so now i am charging it again i.e. it didn't last half a day
2/i installed the cd software that came with it, then added songs to the memory card (PS: it comes with a Nokia 1GB micro sd) and added around 50 songs and 6 music videos, when trying to update the music library it crashed, so i restarted the phone, but still won't update the music library and now when i slide the phone, the Media Catalogue WILL NOT SHOW !!! i tried restarting the phone, still didn't work, so i did a master reset for it and still the problem has not been fixed, so i emailed nokia today and told them about the problem and called the nearest nokia repair center from where i live and the repair guy said that i must have corrupted the software and i have to take it down to him to fix it !!! Can u believe that !!! the phone just crashed just because i wanted to update the music library files!! and i have only head the phone for less than 72 hours!!
So now I don't no if i should return it to O2 and get a replacement of exchange it for another phone or just take it down to the nokia center and have it fixed !! i love it's style and looks, but it is unstable and seems to me unreliable, as i had the Nokia N80 and this never happened to me and the N95 that i got was new and sealed not a clearance deal.
Thank u and feel free to email me
iv just got the n95 on o2 and am concerned about data charges using the sat nav iv allso being told conflicting things about it so if any one knows exactly what the charges are can you email me and let me know as the sales consultant in the shop told mie it would be free as its gps not gprs but every ttime i put it on it connects to o2 the rep malso told me i would recieve a voucher for the maps ??? this is very confusing
