The users have already declared. N82 is the best value all-in-one device. It is N82 that justifies the price/quality ratio. Look. N82 is already discontinued. N79 has been released just over 6 months ago. And 5800 was released 6 months ago. Yet both of them are now cheaper than N82 in most countries. How you wish that there were even just a single review from mobile phone sites that will support your saying that N82 is an inferior phone and is made up of budget materials. Because among all these so-called all-in-one devices, N82 is the only one which completely has no build issues. It is the N95 which is such a shame which is not only criticized for its smallish battery life but also for its very poor build quality despite its hefty price and position as a supposedly flagship device. Is there anything that can be more shameful than that? And did I hear it right? N82 an experiment? N95 8GB was supposed to continue the commercial success of its original version BUT, it did not happen. The announcement and release of N82 dramatically harmed the potential sales of N95 8GB, When N82 was released, there were a lot of existing N95 users who shifted to N82. And even those planning to get an N95 8GB were torned with N82. Even in the United States where N82 has no 3G support, it even made quite a success there.
N82 is the best phone ever made by Nokia. Hardware and features of a flagship device but price of a middle-entry phone. N82 is not even an N7x phone yet it started selling at the same starting price of N73 rather than the starting price of its co-N8x, N80. And didn't you read the reviews about N82. When it was released, there's no other devices that were selling which had the same feature sets as N82. Features, positioning, price/quality ratio - nothing can be better than N82. It's the best.
aaron, 17 May 2009I can even change the menu circle on my N82, the circle that appears on top of the application... moreyou still don't see the point. Your device needs a hack to see the screen right.....what a shame, keep dreaming about a flagship phone. N82 makes good photos, but is otherwise a below average phone nothing more. Nokia knew that when they brought it up...they just needed to show that a phone can have a decent camera - so it's an experimental phone - nowhere near flagship. It will always have issues because it was built with budget materials. And i can't stop laughing about your so called hack knowledge hehehehe...Poor man, can't see the facts right....like a little horsie who sees only straight hahahahaha....feel sorry for you. I have a spare 100€ and i will send it to you so that you can sell you brick and buy a decent phone. Really - i'm not kidding! Regards!
I can even change the menu circle on my N82, the circle that appears on top of the application icons when those apps are opened. I can change their appearance like the S60 menu circle, the latest menu circle you'll see from the N86 and N97, and even more types of menu circles. Here is the screenshot of my N82's customised menu circle:
All of these are possible through hacking. But of course, there's no way I'm gonna share it with you.:-p
You still don't get it don't you? Hacking is the only way to fully utilized Symbian. It's not just about the screen. Hacking opens endless possibilities to your Symbian smartphone. You can install countless signed and unsigned Symbian softwares, cracked Ngage games and even disable the camera shutter sound on your phone through hacking. And by the way, I can hack my phone's screen brightness in less than a minute. It's as easy as deleting a file on a specific file path and replacing it with a text note. That easy! But I prefer my phone's normal brightness since my eyes are more suited to normal level contrast.
aaron, 17 May 2009only people who don't know how to hack their phone will be stuck with dim screen. It's either ... morethat's hardly the point if you can hack it or not. The point is that with flagship phone Nokia doesn't make such a mistake. But then again N82 is far from flagship, so you have to hack the device to see anything on the screen. What a discrace:) lol...you're not even in the same league with N82. So poor.....i'm sorry for you, a peasant wants to be king, but he just can't cut it:)
only people who don't know how to hack their phone will be stuck with dim screen. It's either N82 or N85 now. N95 8GB completely left behind already.
Flagship, 16 May 2009Evey few months i check out if there are any phones out there to replace N958gb since i like t... morehahaha u got it bro!
small and dark screen...ewww! what world do u live in?? lol!
yea thats right, if ur n82 suits ya, then beat it aaron, go have fun with it, we'll never say it's better than n95 8gb, so go home cry to ur mama yea =P
Samsung i8910 Omnia HD has already been released..
and yes N95 8GB is still the best!!
Evey few months i check out if there are any phones out there to replace N958gb since i like to try out new things. And as all previous times i found out nothing is better. I tried innov8 this time (slider even worse than N958gb), TouchHD (man i hate windows mobile), N85 (crashed twice in 5 minutes lol), 5800 (camera is really awfull & N82 (small & dark screens are not my thing). So i removed my add for selling N958gb since there is nothing better out there.
Hmmm, waiting for N97 & Omnia HD. N958gb really still is a flagship after all this time. Incredible!
CB, 15 May 2009Can anyone tell me if O2 Uk is good reception, and good for mobile web browsing with these? is... moreO2 is considered to be one of the strongest signals in the UK along with orange. Vodaphone is poor, T-mobile and virgin are average. 3 is the only network ive not used so I can't offer an opinion on that one.
aaron, 16 May 2009You're multiplying your posts to make it seem like this thread still generates a lot of posts ... moreall N-series phones are great, and each has it's special features according to target consumers that it's aimed at. Argueing which is best and poiniting out weaknesses of one or the other is really childish. Prove that you are adult and mature enough to go beyond that and we will all enjoy this forums and hopefully find a solution to the problems we're having with our device or software. It's all the same brand after all right:)and even if it's Sammy, Moto or Se or the others! Love & peace from big sky country
You're multiplying your posts to make it seem like this thread still generates a lot of posts huh? Good.
N82 awful design? You probably haven't got hold of N82 on real life. And you're just basing your judgment on internet pics. You know what? Nokia has the smartest designers in the world. They design phones that look so ugly in the internet pictures but look amazing in the actual like N82 and N86. There are a lot of people who admittedly said how they disliked N82's design in the photos but retracted afterwards after seeing it in the flesh, especially the black N82.
And a mobile review expert over at smape.com said that N82 is a class on its own. You don't usually get to see an all-in-one device in a candybar form because most of them are in sliders. Now which do you call boring?
Actually, N82's Xenon flash alone is enough to beat all N95 8GB's features combined. There are a lot of phones which are N95-ish, phones which are dual slide and have media keys, but N82 is the only S60 phone which has a Xenon flash (apart from the low profile 6220 classic and G810).
N82 is a standout in the crowd. While your N95 8GB has a lot of clones, I mean better clones.
And lastly, the battery issue that you're pointing out on N82, that's irrelevant now on the latest firmware. You're still living in the Jurassic period so why wouldn't you sell your old aged N95 8GB and buy the the best of the best N82! Hahaha!
aaron, 16 May 2009How outdated is the N95 8Gb? Let me count the ways: 1.Bulky and fat 2.Pointed and sharp edge... moreoh i almost forgot- because it's called the little Chernobil in our country, you have 200% of getting a cancer then when using an ordinary phone. The phone is actually on the limit of hazard with SAR (and that's the manufacturers claim which is known to be pushed down). Stay away from this s**t if you cherish your life:) Everything else could be classified as user opinion but this is a fact. Europeans care about those things that's why in Europe it doesn't sell at all and adds are full of people re-selling it for even 100€ or less, but if you wanna die sooner go ahead and use it and prefferebly carry it close to the heart in the jacket lol - i rest my case - see ya l*ser:)
aaron, 16 May 2009How outdated is the N95 8Gb? Let me count the ways:
1.Bulky and fat
2.Pointed and sharp edge... moreNow let's see what we got here - N82
1)Awful design and cheapy feel
2)Awful and unusable keypad
3)pitty of a battery life
4)pitty of a small screen with max brightness equal to N958gb lowest level lol
5)no gaming keys
6)position of the keys is less then optimal
7)bulky and chunky candybar even more than sliders lol
I think it's the worse N-series phone ever built - it has no style, just an average photo-phone - boring as hell....bljak hahahahha
