Bought one, it was factory sealed.I open it and on the middle of the screen there is a dead pixel. So much for Quality control at Nokia. I called nokia cust. serv. They said they don't care bc the phone wasn't from them. It's a new phone, w/ZERO minutes but they don't care. OK. I called the seller, finally he sent another one. Also factory sealed, brand new. This one crashes couple times a day but most importantly it shuts off every day without any warning! From full battery, to empty in less than a day without even using the phone. For hours I had no clue it wasn't even on. It is the worst, unrealiable phone I have ever owned - and I had plenty. btw. it has the latest FW.
For 500USD this should not happen. If I buy a phone for 20 bucks that is how much I expect, but this is unacceptable from a 5K unit. Plus nokia's attitude towards a new phone is a joke. They should stand behind their mistakes.
For 500 you get NO auto rotate, NO lens cover, no card (I do not care the onboard mem. I will not carry an install CD and a usb cable everywhere in my pocket.. not everyone has bluetooth or infra on their computer) plus the mem. card with a firmw. could be pushed to 16gb. 8gb is not that much if you have some movies, music photos on the phone, if you want to use the video rec. you only have a few minutes left...
So at the end... I'm left with a new phone (used 1hr30min.) what I can use for paper weight.
Is there a large difference between this and the N95 in terms of performance and processingÉ
this is the best phone ever till now, long battery life excellent features,very fast,very durable
i thimk its best hand set i had ever seen as it is very delicate, light , and a smart phone it is my pleasure that nokia had launched such a phone

Does this phone not have a continuous light for taking video? cheers.it seems like not many do anyway.
imran w, 03 Dec 2008I basically hate(d) Nokia phones - to me they boasted the same feature set as Sony Ericssons b... moreGood point imran about the absence of a camera cover. The first model did have a cover, but the 8 gb has a larger battery and there was not enough room for the cover. Instead, they put a glass cover which refracts the light and causes flare, as any light that strikes the glass cover is partially directed on to the lens. this is really annoying with overhead lights. Not a bad phone, but tries to too many things. The WLAN is not easy to use and it is easy to accidently go on the Web thru the service provider.....expensive! I am bored with it.
Revenant, 10 Dec 2008Thanks dude...Have you got a N95 8GB ?, whats happend to the W960i ?

Quick question, any help would be appreciated. Does this phone play WMV files. I don't think so, but I'm not entirely sure. And if not, would it support them if I installed coreplayer? Thanks for any help...
