So i wouldn... moreDo you think a QVGA resolution in a 2.8-inch screen looks more stunning than a 2.6-inch QVGA OLED screen? As if I don't know. The pixels are stretched and very much visible in N95 8GB's screen. The menu transition alone makes the N85 very exciting especially watching it in a gorgeous OLED screen. 16Gb is very much possible with N85. It's never impossible to expand it to 32GB once such card is released. You can put all your music, and still have plenty of space to capture images and shoot video in the highest resolution with the highest quality. Is it possible to do that on N95 8GB? Naviwheel and FM transmitter are very nice features that should be enjoyed on a Nokia phone. N85 got both, N95 8GB got none. N85's sound quality is one of the best whereas N95 8GB's horrible. Even 5220 XpressMusic has much better sound quality than N95 8GB. Triband HSDPA on N85-3 means you can use it both in America, Europe and Asia. N95 8Gb has only a single band 3G and cannot be used for international roaming. Everything on N85 saves power, from its processor, to the software, to the OLED screen, everything consumes much less power, achieving a much longer battery life. N95 8GB has the same battery capacity but cannot achieve that same battery life since its TFT large screen and dual processor are very power hungry. And last is design. N95 8GB is a very wide and bulky phone, while N85 is slim and sleek. N85 also has better design and much nicer than N95 8GB.

N85 just has slight improvements..its nothing to bragg about like FPS and OLED Display... and its display is 0.2 smaller being 2.6 inch and its design is more slender.
So N95 8GB is still a VERY GOOD PHONE considering its 2 years old. it still manages to beat many of the newer N-Series phones
N95 8GB costs 540 dollars while N85 costs 430 dollars only. Which is more practical between the two? Considering that N85 is the newer, better device with more extra and upgraded features, is N95 8GB's 110 dollars excess in price reasonable? Be wise, buy an N85 which can do much more and better than N95 8GB and you can still buy a 16GB microsd card for less than 110 dollars. You save money and you get the best value for your money.
I don't need that link. I have tried it for myself. I know that the only thing that N95 8GB edges out the N85 is the camera and speakers. Hello? There's more to multimedia than camera alone. And of course a lot more people prefer listening to music through the headphones rather than the speakers. If I put on my large collection of over 3,000 songs on N95 8GB, will I still have enough space to record even just 15 minutes of video in TV quality? N85 may not be the best in media production but it's one of the best in media consumption. And in everything else, the N85 is far more superior than N95 8GB. So for those people who are planning to buy an all-in-one multimedia device, buy the N85. It's more worth it than N95 8GB.

Dani, 23 Feb 2009Old is Gold! N95 8GBN95 8Gb is a pointless device. It doesn't specialize on anything. Among the league of N96, N85, N82 and N86 8MP, N95 8Gb comes last!
n 95 :the battery is not as long as n 85 but also the latter earphones sucks
JAPAN? KOREA? - Does N95 8GB work in Japan and Korea (3G UMTS 2100) I pass by Japan every time I go to USA. Thinking of buying cause my friend gave the phone a "10" rating
For N95 8Gb's price, it's not really worth it. It's not the best in anything for it to be the most expensive. When we talk about camera, N82 is the best. Music, N96 or 5800 is top notch. Video, nothing beats N96. So, what multimedia department does N95 8Gb excel best compared to others? Answer is none. Why? Because N95 8GB is an all-in-one device that doesn't specialize on anything. It is same as the classic N95. Same below average sound quality headphones-wise. Same screen, only 0.2 inch larger. Same boring design and little bit bulkier. And in fact, even N95 classic has better image camera quality results than N95 8Gb. Battery life has been increased but still can't beat N85. And most people even pair N95 8Gb with much less expensive N82. N82 gets the upperhand with it's unbeatable image quality. And the worst thing about it is that all the other mobile phones can be expanded to 16Gb and more of memory while N95 8Gb is miserably stuck with only 8Gb. As a consolation, N95 8Gb is undoubtedly one of the best mobile phones ever produced by Nokia and used to be the king. But not anymore. There are a lot of much better phones that are spawning every month so the once king N95 8Gb has already been dethroned long ago! Accept the reality!
Tommyboy7, 23 Feb 2009Yes, but have you ever really tried N96. I tried it together with N958gb and N96 needed like 5... moreYou also have to consider that N96 is just a recently released phone in a new platform with still immature firmware whereas N95 8Gb is already on its final firmware version. When N96 hits the v31 firmware, that's only time that it's true potentials will be realized. Same holds true for N85.
