Like everyone I waited for the N95 eagerly and for a long time too.I was very disappointed today when I held it for the first time today in a Nokia shop.The build quality is the WORSE I have seen from Nokia.
The shiny chrome plated trimmings were cheap looking and tacky and the overall build quality is nowhere as good as the N80's solid feel and build.Needless to say I did not buy the N95.
I looked at SE/Nokia stand-by/talk time for smartphones:
N95 stand-by time seem a bit shorter than the other, but otherwise I don't see any big differences! The long talk time for N95 indicates that it is comparable to SE when used frequently (talk, SMS, web-browsing,...).
If you are talking about other than smart phones, then Nokia's cheapest(?) phone has a good 380/5,2 hours!! I'm talking about Nokia 1110...
Does anyone have a loose slider when it's open?Especially when you press the right soft key or the end key.BAD DESIGN NOKIA.
Samsung are still the kings of the slide phone.
Got it for a week now very nice phone with no major problems.come on guys, with this kind of features that this phone carries what do u expect more out of it.
does anyone know if there is a difference in the way this operates with a chinese keypad or english keypad, meaning does it matter? also which color is most preferred the plum or sand?
I waited 4 minutes to get a GPS Fix,it's just to darn slow.I'll stay with TomTom 6 for my Sat Nav.
the battery of the phone is not that great about 2 days per charge, but you do have to wear them in before you see the real performance of this wicked unit!!!!
but to be frank for what it dose i'm more then happy to put it on charge 2 more times a week
come on, this phone features are the best. However, do you want to spend US$800 on a phone which you will have to worry the battery every single time you browse the internet, take picture, using your GPS in your car, or even just to talk on the phone? If a battery can't even last for a daily use, why buy this phone, right? Don't tell me about the car charger, or extra battery, cuz' we are talking about the Nokia N95 , the phone iteself.
Just like you are spending $100,000 to buy a luxury car with all luxury accessory in the car, but the gas milages only allow you to drive from home to work and then back home. If u want to go to supermarket after work, or friends' party, you have to fill up gas tank again.
The problem is not the money, of course, (since most of us here can affort to buy this N95), the problem is inconvenience. It's enough for us to bring wallet, keys, or may be cigarette, lighter to go out every day. It's kinda annoying for me to bring an extra battery out and put in my pocket every day for my cellphone? I think we should pay high price to enjoy the phone, enjoy the nice features. Not torture ourselves by the limitation of Nokia's WORSE PRODUCT---BATTERY.
I want to make it clear, I am debating buying this phone or not. I love N95 all feautres, but ONLY the battery life turned me down. I am here want to tell ppl out there, if there is a way to invest a new type of battery for NOKIA N95, and have longer life on usage, do it and I will buy it. OR if any Nokia engineer see this message, please let your manager know, and do something about it. Sony Ericsson can make a good camera, flash light, mp3 player and a GOOD Battery on their cellphone, dont' tell me you cannot do it. Okay. After the N95 came out, Nokia already proved that they are the best , or top five brand..no doubt. Please improve the battery life.. pls... such as N70, N80, N91.. man... suxk....why? because of the high end features with short battery life.. if NOKIA can't even make a acceptable battery for the consumer, don't spend money on any other features, because at that time, all consumer will be disappointed and switch to Sony Ericsson since they also have similar features and functions, and STYLE!!!!!!.....
Can someone please let me know what the battery life is like?
And is the software reliable on the handset?
There is no phone which is slim and sleek and has powerful features like NOKIA N95 and stop comparing it with moto ,samsung and SE
does anyone know if there is a difference in how it will work, etc. in the n95 from asia with chinese keypad and the ones from uk with english keypad? does it matter?
simply stated if anyones having technical issues or loose slider, phone restarting frequently- just return it for one that works if you really like the phone. its a beauty......glad to say i dont have any problems at all with mine. awesome,awesome,awesome...
i have not got one or now reading these coments want one,it is not because i cant aford one because i am quite well off,so stop talking crap about it being a expensive phone and poor people cant aford one
im curious has anyone had a preference on color of this n95 plum or sand for guys or gals??
The GPS is seperate from your service provider. It's like having a Garmin GPS device. The only thing you pay nokia for is when you want to use turn by turn navigating
this phone is too bulky and heavy for me to carry in my pocket. Why nokia can't make slim design phone as samsung, motorola, sony ericsson and lg phones?
words arent enough to describe this adorable thing .... my first comment , i cant stop to say a big WOW , tho it was expensive but worth every single cent . Nokia did it again .
