To BJD: how can you dislike a phone you haven't even tested?? Maybe you're doing too much BJDing!!! To Stevenphoneman: can you prove what you're claiming about Nokia sending you 50 phones (of which you had to return 49 faulty ones) is true because it sounds like a heap of heavy duty BS!! Looking seriously at this offering by Nokia, I am worried about the phone's reliability. I and other users have already had serious problems with the N93 and its softwear. I hope the delay in availability is because Nokia are thoroughly testing the phone. The one thing we don't need is an expensive phone that is unreliable. A phone that freezes, hangs, autoshuts off etc. It is puzzling why Nokia should put a 5MP camera in a phone without including a Xenon flash. This is after all the complaints by professional and amateur reviewers about the N73 and N93 phones' poor indoor and dim-light performance. Do Nokia want us to take decent pictures or not? How come this phone doesn't support stereo Bluetooth(A2DP)? This is supposed to be a modern phone. Motorola have the foresight to put A2ŠP in far cheaper phones. The two-way slider: let's hope it's stable. I just wish they had put all this high spec into a candy-bar form-no hinges, no slides. For a high-tech phone the size and weight are OK. I hope the phone comes in black. N-series phones look better that way: it gives them a touch of class!
Beware about www.mymarket-online.com, it's ABSOLUTELY FAKE !!:
1) I got intouch with them on January 12th.
2) I ordered and transfered the payment them for a N95 and sending them document confirming the transfer on Janury 15th.
3) They comfirmed the reception of the money on January 16th and announced I would receive the tracking number next day in the morning (January 17th).
4) I've never got any new, answer, etc... more from them, desipte I've sent them MANY emails.
5) I've verified they didn't have problems
to send and receive emails.
SO, ONCE MORE, BEWARE !! I HOPE THEY RECEIVE THE CORRESPONDING PUNISHMENT.
The dimensions of N95 are great, fits really nicely in your pocket, though it's a bit heavier than you'd think... and the idea of the sliding cover is otherwise OK, but it makes the phone top-heavy, making it difficult to text or dial with one hand only (as I do).
Another thing that's a problem for females at least, are the media buttons sliding from the top (or left, depending on how you're holding it) of the phone -they can absolutely not be used smoothly with a bit longer fingernail on your left thumb... so girls, forget about those nice long nails if you're planning to get this phone...
The big screen is bright and precise, and the 5 mp camera is great wheather you want close-up macro photos or night-time shots. One of the best cameras in Nokia phones that I've seen, and it's not just the megapixels but the oh so handy auto-focus feature, something that many other phones with lots of megapixels do not have but should have!
i dont like this phone... i still love my nokia 5110... its the best phone ive ever had...
Looks gorgeous. Nokia are the best. Can't wait for this phone to be in my hands!
N95 are NOT available on the market yet and it will start shipping in big volumes from two factories (Europe/Asia) in march.
Why are you waiting for the N95 in the first place? It is because of this that Nokia could mark up the price tremendously! Plus...its been annouced for awhile, and you know how they never release it on the date that they said they would.
This phone is supposed to be Nokia's best creation yet, so they have to take the time to make the phone perfect...so just wait a little bit longer. Since its taking forever, might as well go read about the Apple iPhone, Motorola E6, LG Parada, LG Shine, etc. =)
Don't waste your time drooling over this phone every day. You'll die soon enough haha. It'll come when it comes.
whats missing - it doesn't have a xenon flash! from that i'm guessing it will probably have the same god awful nighttime photography as the n73 - the k8001 is much better for nightime photography thanks to the awesome flash (i'm not just saying it, check out http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/readreviews.php?id=1520).
Also 2GB memory isn't all that impressive next to the the latest in then sony walkman range, but with hot swappable you can cary other miniSD cards with you.
All I'm hoping is 1: GPS will have hands free (think about driving) and worldwide maps (i'm a frequent traveller) 2: Introduction of vista won't cause software probems, and hopefully there will be a platform for either iTunes or WMP.
Damn! what a cool phone. Nearly a complete phone, all thats missing is touchscreen. It this one had a touchscreen then would have been sooooooooooooooo much better but nevertheless its one of the best so far.
hmmm... this phone i best phone ever made... it is definately a must have. but as nokia usually does it, something will be missing. they didnt put vibration and optical zoom in n90 and only reason was that so they can sell n93 to ppl. something will be missing here too, but nobody knows what. i am sure i will get one but nokia will surely f*** up something so they can sell n97 to us in next 6 months.
Has anyone delt with/heard of "popular electronics" previously?
Is is a known site in the US, I've certainly never heard of it - but I'm in Australia and the well known online electronics marketers preferred here are generally local, none of which have their hands on the n95 yet.
What is nokias advertised release date and which reputable online sources would be first to have it in stock (think cell phone network company type reputable - I really don't mind paying extra to have it unlocked I just don't want Chinese garbage or to be waiting forever for it to arrive at my end of the earth - which who knows if Netherlads dont get it til July mightent be til December - and don't really want to be taking time off uni to fly to europe again and buy one - I'll be in switzerland/france/uk throughout feburary, going via singapore, if perrhaps it will be arriving somewhere 'mid-feburary'... if anyone has a clue... even a stab in the dark...) Thanx
it is really indeed cool... it is nice... it have a 5mp camera which what other nokia phone does not have... i belief it can be very popular although it is abit expensive. =)
thats what i think. but others also agreed...
well this phone looks fantastic, hoping they have solved the software issues that the n80 had.
the phone is coming into O2 stores on the 27th march (i work for them :) ) and i am loking to get one as soon as it does.
loving the dual slide motion and 5mp camera, should be great.
it is a very unique mobile which i have never see before. can some one it,s official launching date??
