Has anyone tried epocware handy shell for N958gb. I find it a great piece of software since my background is windows mobile and i got used to a home screen which has all the important info that u need. Nokia's active stand by is rather dull and graphically unpleasing. Together with Handy Shell it's a killer combo. Check it out - recommend it highly to all Symbian users
polpogi, 07 Apr 2009whats better? n95 8gb or samsung innovate? thanks! That's a tough one - innov8 should be a copy of N958gb but i've never really used it, just played with it a bit. Samsung are making quite good units lately and in our country innov8 is priced higher than N958gb....It has a better camera and player that plays several formats out of the box....If you are willing to pay extra bucks go for innov8, otherwise i think you can rest assured - N958gb will not let you down:) Regards!

I have some 1300 pics on my phone and 2 gps apps with maps of my whole region and i still have 5gb free. It's funny that people say that downside of N958gb is it has no expandable memory and then have 100mb used space on the phone. One thing is what you can do and another what is really practically achievable by majority of users. So 8gb is more than enough for me and for 99% of users:) Poeple have 1 or 2gb ipods and suddenly 8gb is not enough in a phone. Common man:)

U must accept a fact which n82 sound is better..but n95gb is cute device..it look smart wif black cloth..without dual slider,n958gb is nothing.,teps i can buy and afford to use n958gb device.but it is wasted to buy! Sorry to say..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Now the last sentence of yours really nails it:) Cheers mate:) We're done i would say:)
aaron, 07 Apr 2009I am not being too technical here. But I already know those things. And let me correct you. Th... moreWell done,you went and contradicted your previous post. :) all i said was correct, you on the other hand are desperatley trying to justify why someone should buy a N82 over a N95-8gb, and you are doing a bad job at it,realy. By the way its NOT about what the other can over another since we both know that both these phones similar hardware, its about WHICH DOES IT BETTER and THATS the point, N82 is meant to be Nokia's Camera Flagship thats why it has a xenon flash, candy bar form and smaller screen, whereas N95-8gb is aimed at Ngage gaming,Movies/Video, and Music and it does these better than N82 thanx to N95 having Music keys/Gaming keys, larger display and larger batt. At the end of the day a hardcore Symbian S60 user will choose a N95-8gb due it being far more convenient thanx to the extra keys etc. . . and the average will take the cheaper N82 for taking pics etc. . . Now do us all a favour and get back to N82 forum, if the N82 was so good you wouldn't be here.
I am not being too technical here. But I already know those things. And let me correct you. The DSP runs at 220mhz not 210.What I said was the N82 doesn't have a dedicated audio chip. It is the DSP that handles all audio processing. Do you remember the N93-N73 tandem? N93 was the flagship multimedia device focusing on video and N73 was the imaging flagship. The difference between those two are like heaven and earth. N93's price at that time was as hefty as its feature sets. While N73 has a modest feature set and reasonable price enough to attract consumer attention even up to now. Then came the new tandem N95 8GB-N82. The difference or should I say, the gap between N95 8GB and N82 is no longer as huge or as wide as was the gap between N93 and N73. Back then, N73 became very successful commercially in expense of N93's flop because it was very affordable not because it scored better in benchmark tests than N93. And today, most people buy N82 instead of N95 8GB because not only is N82 very affordable but also because of the very fact that N82 is basically an N95 8GB in a very popular candybar form factor, with better camera and is a lot more practical. Who wouldn't favor the N82 for those matters? Do you know why N95 8GB and the standard N95 are still unreasonably expensive today despite of their age? It is because even up to now, consumers are still paying dual slide patent on that phone. And let me give you a picture. An N73 user did envy the N93 user because the latter can record DVD-like videos that can be beamed straight on a TV screen, as well as use internet over WLAN. But no way that an N82 user will ever envy an N95 8GB user because the former knows that his phone can do everything what the latter's phone can. See the picture. That is why more people prefers an N82 over N95 8GB.

aaron, 07 Apr 2009N82 is the worst in sound in the Nseries? And N95 8GB has better sound than N82? Are you kiddi... moreYour lack of knowledge is hilarious. ACTUALY the N82 has a audio chip, i am well aware of the hardware, the N82, N93/93i, N95/95-8gb and E90 all have the TI OMAP2420 chipset, this has a dual cpu at 332mhz, the PowerVR MBX2 GPU at 220mhz AND a audio chip DSP by StarCore at around 210mhz plus the other little things, i know my hardware. The reason why people choose N82 over N95-8gb is not because of some benchmarking test, but because the N82 is cheaper, THATS A FACT, plus if you had a brain you'd realise that the only reason why N82 gave a better score is because it has less to cope with, it has a screen thats 0.4inchs smaller, less internal mem and no large flash mem like N95-8gb so that gives the N82 an edge, BUT in real life useage theres absolutely no difference realy. OH And by the way the N93 gave the best scores, why arent many people buying that then? Please, try being logical. The N81 is well priced, its the N82 thats constantly dropping in price.
N82 is the worst in sound in the Nseries? And N95 8GB has better sound than N82? Are you kidding? I have N82 and N91. I'm not an audiophile but I'm a music freak. N91 has the best sound quality I've ever heard among all music players. And you know what? N82 is not up to the level of sound quality of N91. It's understandable since it doesn't have an dedicated audio chip. It's not as loud as N91. But N82 has deeper bass than N91. And comparing N82 with N95 8GB, both on v31 fw, N82 has noticeably better and louder sound than N95 8GB. Even regular people will notice that. My classmate has N95 8GB and many times I've played with his phone. I even install Futuremark SPmark both on his and my phone. And the 3D tests I've got, the N82 wins based on the figures. If N81 is priced just the same as N82 then N81 is unjustly priced. Who would buy N81 if for the same price you could buy an N82? Do you think that the better sound quality of N81 is more worth it than the best image quality of N82? N82 does not have poor hardware. In fact, N82 and N95 8GB are 90 percent identical in hardware terms. The only thing that differentiates them is the form factor, screen size and the flash. In software terms, N82 and N95 8GB are even more identical. You navigate the menus of both N82 and N95 8GB and you will see that they are totally the same. Again, the only thing that differentiates them, software-wise, is the performance. That is what I'm trying to point out here. N82 and N95 8GB basically are the same. They have the same camera specs, same CPU, same RAM, same GPS receiver, same DSP chip, same graphics chip, but look. N82 performs better on all these accounts. N82 shoots much much better pictures, N82 has much much faster GPS. N82 has better sound. And N82 handles better graphics based on SPmark tests. So why do people choose N82 rather than N95 8GB? Because they realize that N82 is an N95 8GB that performs much better on everything.
