and is n85 faster than n95-8gb?
I've already narrated the comparison between N82 and N95 8GB in my earlier posts here in this thread. I don't want to be redundant. Just search them.
It is not just to say that N82 only has Xenon flash and candybar form and N95 8GB has everything because both of them have the same functionalities. What N95 8Gb has, the N82 also has it. And vice versa. The difference lies on what type is it? For example, both N82 and N95 8GB have a flash, the N82 has Xenon, the N95 8GB has LED. Both have a TFT screen, the N82 has 2.4", the N95 8GB has 2.8". Except from the flash, screen dimension and form factor, everything else between N82 and N95 8GB is exactly the same. So it isn't intelligent to say that N82 only has Xenon flash and candybar form. The smartest way to ask yourself just in case you want to buy a phone and you're choosing between these two is: Do I want a slide or do I want a candybar? Nokia created N82 not just for the camera purpose alone. They created N82 because they wanted to expand their portfolio of all-in-devices. N82 is for people who want an all-in-one device but do not want a slide phone. Search the internet forums and you'll find a lot of user opinions of how they dislike the slide form and prefer the more durable and longer lasting candybar form. N82 is Nokia's answer to them. There aren't too many all-in-one devices which are in candybar form so N82 is one of a kind.
jim, 24 Apr 2009hi.
please can anyone state that which phone is better, N95 8gb or N82.
Thanks.N95 8GB is better, as its up for everything, its more of an all-rounder.
N82 only has Xenon Flash and candybar form.
N95 8GB is just better.
please can anyone state that which phone is better, N95 8gb or N82.
I don't think N85 could 'replace' N95 8GB, N85 is more of a upgraded N81 since its focuses on gaming and music and less on camera!
N95 8GB is the All-rounder since its camera is good, music is good, gaming is awesome!
in other words N95 8GB is the President, N85 is the foreign minister!
N95 8GB's dual CPU is more powerful than N85's single chip processor. But the N85's CPU has faster clock rate. As I've said, N85 is the better music phone between the two. N95 8GB is the better camera phone.
N85 is for people who want an all-in-one device in a very slim package that focuses on music. N85 is a breath of fresh air. It doesn't compete with the likes of N95 8GB or N82 since it isn't a flagship at all. But the great things you will love from N85 are its excellent music quality, gorgeous OLED screen, very attractive user interface, long battery life, and cool design. If you fancy these things, then N85 is the right phone for you.
Definetely the phone to have. Tried everything and nothing compares.Have fun all ya
aaron, 24 Apr 2009Okay. Let's tackle the differences between N85 and N95 8GB as unbiased and fair as possible. T... moreI just have 2 questions to ask you.
1.Is n85(single cpu) powerfuler than n95-8gb(dual cpu)?
2.Is n85 really better than n95-8gb when it comes about music?how is the music quality of them and which have more music playback time?
Let me just add to my previous comment, N95 8GB's sound quality is awesome when the equaliser is set to 'Bass booster' and Loudness is turned on, N95 8GB is still KING, Im typing all this from my N95 8GB right now
Ktulu (N95 8GB), 24 Apr 2009You've given quite a good comparison :) You're not bad after all, but... Try and be nicer, in ... moreA nice reply there, Ktulu..
serves him right =D
ohh and one more thing..
what about the keypad?
don't tell me it's not important to have a good keypad to press when you're messaging a lot..
do u send text messages a lot?
i can't even stand texting 2 lines of messages on a flat keypad phones
so there u have it..the REAL winner :P
btw dude, N95 8GB was out around October 2007, and when's N85 out? after all that time, it still doesn't beat N95 8GB fully..
There are still little aspects that N95 8GB wins over N85 right?
So there you have it~ the difference between N8x and N9x =P a year's gone passed and yet it's still the King!
as GSMArena said "Nokia N95 8GB review: Return or the king" =D
Best phone I have ever owned. Probably best phone out there. I haven't tried the N96 yet, but I can't wait to get my hands on one. Very user-friendly as well. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.
look every one this is an expensive phone and a phone like this should never provide pannels with such cheap plastics it also feels hollow. my advice is you can buy a sony ericsson w960i wich is a little cheaper and works much better to
N95 8GB is still GOOD though,
I guess Nokia made
N82 to improve on the camera(Xenon Flash, Candybar form).
N85 improves on UI, Design, Memory
But still OVERALL N95 8GB is very good!
aaron, 24 Apr 2009Okay. Let's tackle the differences between N85 and N95 8GB as unbiased and fair as possible. T... moreYou've given quite a good comparison :) You're not bad after all, but... Try and be nicer, in the sense that, we're people that love this device, we actually know why we've chosen it :) However, we do recognize the pros of other devices.
You should've known by now that you shouldn't impose on anyone what they should buy.
All of us certainly would search everywhere and try each device before buying it :) And each of us would surely have made the decision which one suites best, by the time he bought it.
Okay. Let's tackle the differences between N85 and N95 8GB as unbiased and fair as possible. The N95 8GB has better build, better materials used, better hardware, mature firmware. However, it's huge, thick, and the style doesn't go with the latest trend of Nokia Nseries devices. The N85 has poorer built, still immature firmware. But it is more attractive and beautiful (subjective), slimmer, has more elaborate user interface, more customisation options, and more extra features. We all know that the N95 8GB is powered by a dual CPU with 3D graphics accelerator. But the question is: Does it matter a lot to you? Or will you need their presence? The N85, just like most Nseries phones, is run by a single chip processor with no 3D accelerator. The advantage of having a dual CPU is that there is a host processor that deals with multimedia and application processing, and there is a peasarate DSP chip that deals with telephony tasks. The 3D accelerator is utilised in image and video encoding, image viewing and video playback, and of course gaming. However, dual CPU is more power-hungry than single CPU. And there are very few games that make use of the 3D accelerator. In fact, there is no Ngaga game at present which is 3D accelerated. So Ngage gaming between N85 and N95 8GB is just equal. The advantage of the single CPU of N85 is that it's faster than that of the dual CPU of N95 8GB. Actually, on this front there is a little to no noticeable real-life difference between the two. An average user will hardly notice the difference in speed between N85 and N95 8GB. Also, the single CPU is more of a power-saver. Both N85 and N95 8GB have almost the very same feature sets, with the N85 having some more extra features added. The N95 8GB has a 0.2-inch larger QVGA display, but the N82 has an OLED screen with nicer picture quality and more vibrant colors. If you'll ask me I'll prefer the latter since I think that the OLED is much more worth it than the 0.2-inch of extra dimension. They have the same 5MP camera, with N95 8GB Having slightly better image results. But N85 has a dual LED flash which is two times brighter than N95 8GB's flash. And also N85 has a wider angle lens since it has 5.45 focal length versus 5.6 focal length of N95 8GB. The smaller number indicates wider angle lens. In quality of recorded videos, N95 8GB clearly wins since it has a 3D accelerator which is a must for a achieving better encoded videos. When it comes to music and sound quality, the N85 is the better music phone. The N95 8GB may have louder stereo speakers, but the N85 has so much better sound quality via the headset, and the 3.5mm jack properly placed at the top. And also, N85 has an built-in FM transmitter which can be used for at least 3 metres. If you care much about the user interface, you'll love the N85. Looking at the transitions all throughout the menus, from opening applications to closing applications to rotating the screen from portrait to landscape is just so cool and nice. And there are few more added features to the user interface like some more customisation options for the standby screen, new Photos application, and cosmetic enhancements to the menu and music player. Do I need to elaborate the discussion about the UI of N95 8GB? It's the very same UI as in N82. The N85 also have a Naviwheel that can be throught the menu. It also has longer battery life compared to N95 8GB despite having same 1200mah battery. The OLED screen, single processor and FP2 software help optimise the battery usage. The N95 8GB has a built-in 8GB flash memory with no more option for expanding it. The N85 has a microSD card slot and already comes with an 8GB in the sales package. So I've mentioned all their pros and cons, it's up to you to weigh the odds. But if I were you, I'd choose the N85. Most people point out that the greatest weakness of N85 as well as other latest Nseries phones is the lack of the 3D graphics chip. But in practical sense, it isn't that much of a big deal. Only technical people will notice the presence or lack of the 3D graphics chip in a mobile phone.
