I have had a play with a couple of things today. The camera is good. 5Mp is a bit much for a small lens so it does have some noise. But it is acceptable.
There is a hint of colour cast in indoor photos but nothing serious.
I use photoshop so I can clean them up and they are as good as most compact camera images in my honest opinion.
GPS. I am not sure about having to pay to use it... I thought that was only for the vocal direction download for each journey. Also if it used the network for the trip instead of the GPS system. I do know GPS signals can be lost in built up areas so using the network is quite clever. I have also sync'd the phone to my Bluetooth GPS reciver which is a very accurate motorsport version and it picks up the signal almost instantly. I will be using it for a route guidance later this week so I will see if we get charged if I turn the network option off!!
So far it has been great. I have run the battery down playing with all the toys and listening to music. I had hoped the USB cable would also charge the phone but I am affraid it does not! Oh well luckily I am close to a power supply and I will not be playing with the thing too much once I have got used to it and it just becomes another phone!
to l7wv,,,, three massive cheers to you because on voda i got 20 quid contract plus 100 quid upfront for my last fone and generally pottered about on internet..BANG the first bill was 87 quid and all extras was browsing internet..They want you to enjoy the experiance of browsing, and i love it on a fone browsing the internet and generally use it for train info to news video clips...SO now its minimal browsing & an UNINTERESTING experience with all the images & sounds turned off to save data d/load cost..They can give me 5000 mins or 5000 txts i dont care i want is full mobile fone web browsing experience at broadband home prices..BT broadband have given me a general cap of 16.7 gb but if i go over they never charge me,,, if i did that on vodafone live it wud cost £39,579.00 at voda"s £2.37 a mb,,,enjoy voda live "huff" ENUF SAID!!
You don't have to pay anything for the GPS, except if you need voice-navigation!!
I know quite a bit about fones and i can you cats this the n95 is the best fone ther has ever been and I no this cause I had the 6630 n70 and the n80 and n95 kills they fones no problem nokia always no what to bring out and when and that is why nokia is the leader and other people copy them power up to nokia thank you nokia
lyn did o2 say that it would cost extra for using the gps cos other websites dont mention anything about extra charges for using it?
mine came today...take back all i said about o2!! Just charging it...looks complicated after the sony but looks good up to now!!
the main reason i wanted the phone was for the gps. at £4.95 a week im cheaper buying a tomtom
If you want to use the n95 and all it's features do not get it from o2.C'mon this is a great phone with FULL web browsing capabilities.Think about it,you could be traveling on the bus,passenger in car,on the train and surfing the web,using emoze for push email and the most it can cost with t-mobile is £7.50 per month-2gig fair usage,but you can go way over and they don't charge you.That o2 guy is trying to make money for himself.o2 are the rubbish,would probably cost you 10quid to look at a few pages on this site!
Hi can you tell me why you need to pay extra to use the gps? i phoned o2 to upgrade my phone and was told it would cost £90 for the phone then £4.95 a week to use the gps
My seventh Nokia phone (4th N series), and finally one that doesn't leave a grudging taste in the mouth.
Reasonably fast, very, VERY good display. Strong camera AND video function, unlike the N93 or N73 which were cases of either/or. Comes in a nice package too, mine had a casing, the micro card, the adapters, and a Sennheiser voucher.
Previously was using the N73 for nine months and though the camera was great, it really got quite slow in some areas and the video was so strangely inferior to N70. Now, finally, a real multimedia phone worth the cent of it.
I work in an O2 Store and we had plenty arrive today (wednesday), there pretty cheap too, i got one myself its quality.
Just got the phone comments:
1. I feel it’s too plastic if you know what I mean.
2. G.P.S I tried it and the funny thing is I think its always pointing to north so if your going or coming on the highway in my case the ocean is always on the right side.
Hi all!Just bought the phone in Oxford,Uk and they had plenty of then in stock! The phone is perfect!Very fast (comparing to my previous nokia n80), the camera is incredible, the gps works very well, the sound is perfect the most amazing thing is that it is a light phone! I was expecting it to be heavy! Perfect phone, bought it for 500£ in the carphone warehouse!Congratulations to Nokia!
am seriusly thinking of gettin the O2 orbit or the new releases. windows is more maleable than symbian in my opinion. n despite the general opinion abt Microsoft, i fink windows is beter looking n beter to work with than symbian.
the 5m is something i wish the orbit had but then u cnt av it all!
i have seen some bugs already-the phone restarted when i tried cancelling connection to WAP!!!!
I feel that nokia shud have a new version of the n95 simply cuz of the prossesor speed . The new version i hope will have features similar then the 5700 with a good arm prosseor ram and rom cpu to be in business . But also why nokia went from super fast dv rs mmc to mini sd and now uses Trans flash on a phone that shud runn on high speed mmc sandisk duo pro speed is way better but se phones in general dont do half of what nokia phones can do i had the 6682 or 6680 and when you clicked on something you had instant result with 3rd ed it s slow it s a question of money if they had to put 400 mhz arm pressesers on there symbian phones the price would double look at the blackberrys . So why micro sd and not mini sd or dv rs mmc ?????
Usually you should be outside (not in a building) to get the GPS signal... That applies to all GPS equipment.
this is my personal opinion so dnt let it affect yrs. plz have a look instore b4 u decide.
Am nt at all pleased with the build qlty. am nt one to throw my phone around but i have dropped it more than once! it doest seem like the n95 won't take it!
there's that hissing sound when i received calls which winds me up!!!! n the loose screen area!
again these might all be a problem with my handset only. but a lot have reported similar issues!
as i previusly pointed out, Symbian is not exactly my cuppa tea!hav had it on 6680 n n70 for sth like 2 years now n never eva eva warmed up to it. i'd rather use my k750 n d600 anytime.
The phone was launched today by O2, i popped in to a store today to pick up my brothers phone from repair and asked, then 10 mins later i walked out with the last one, free. havent had a chance to play with it tho
