Ok it says it has an accelormeter or whatever, but when ever I see a video of it, the person has to slide down the multimedia buttons. What's up with that?
@ gsm arena
please make reviews on the major drawbacks such as the durability, malfucntioning interface and various other problems with this phone, rather than just saying its the best of the best
I will get another one from Rogers(can) to confirm if most or all of the phones not that great.
I bought the Rogers(Canada) N95 8GB, this phone freezes so often that the phone will restart itself, if you pres any button or function twice before the phone responds it will restart. This particular phone sucks and please pardon my disapproval, i had high hopes B4 i got this phone, its possible that it its a problem with the handset and not all the phones i am in the process of returning it to Rogers
If the phone didn't freeze it would be a great phone there some applications will not work because the phone inability to process and execute, but the ones that work pretty well (WLAN,Camera, bluetooth, internet(on wifi)) all work well.
hi please can you tell me if the slider mechanism on the n95 8gb is good or not?
many of these phones are comming with a manufacutres faulty camera. i prefer not to buy this phone, instead a nokia n81 8gb is better.
filipinas has a point.
like me. from nokia 6600, i jumped to N95 and needs to rely on the manual. believe me, i have no idea how to use its WLAN and configure some of its setting so I go by the manual. maybe some of you don't read the manual since you are familiar with its UI but for those people who is noob like me, i need to read it and google some of my queries.
thanks for the heads up filipinas =)
I am a user of Nokia, i agree that Nokia's phones built quality is bad, joints will be loose just after few months of usage..plastic quality is bad compared to Sony Ericsson's phones..in my opinion Nokia's plastic feels kinda cheap looking too.....and Nokia's S60 OS....full of bugs...hangs and restarts occasionally.
The n95 8gb is actually 400.00 right now on a 3 year vision plan with rogers. You have to pay for the extra stuff vision gives you!
Just to clear up the GPS questions.
NO. You don't need a subscription, or even a sim card!
GPS is just a stand alone receiver unit built into the phone.
Paying a subscription would be the same as paying to listen to your FM radio!
The signals are sent from the orbiting satellites (you need to receive at least 3 for a good position fix), and the time it takes for the signal to reach your receiver is calculated for each signal received.
So in summary - no subscription needed - no internet needed - not even a sim card is needed for GPS use (SIM needed for A-GPS).
This is the primary reason that I've bought the phone (updating from N73, N82 screen too small).
BTW - price is $580 USD in Cambodia from the official Nokia showroom in Phnom Penh.
What's the best way to clear water damage from it?
I believe it's under the slider - doesn't effect it greatly, but it does stuff up the screen at times.
No, no I don't speak English and clearly I don't understand it
You actually READ manuals? I didn't think anyone did... Which is why no one knows how to use a phone they pay so much for. I would think that maybe that is the reason your battery lasts so long if you did indeed read the manual and followed instructions, perhaps a poll would furthur confirm this.
However I don't think anyone else has ever bothered to read manuals and least of all follow instructions.
yah right? do you speak nor understand english? i said im lucky because my battery lasts that long..
its like buying a new car, not everyone can attain its topspeed in same model/engine, it depends on how they "break it in".. when i bought my phone i charge it the way it use to as the manual said..
now, im enjoying my phone for how many days without worries about the battery life..
hope you get the point..
i bet the people who bought the 8gb long time ago are happy realizing that others can buy its at rogers for like 250-300 with contract. let the price slope begin.
i have had this phone for 6 months now and i hav had now prolems at all
it is absolutely brilliant
i dont care what people say about the sat nav built into this phone, its a good sat nav
went for a drive today, weather was very cloudy and raining heavily but the sat nav was working fine
the features are amazing
camera quality is great
mp3 player on this phone is the best in terms of sound quality it allows you to use any headfones in the 3.5mm jack
abit chunky but the black and silver just looks sexy
all my mates love my phone and think its great
I planin o n getting this phone but i just dont know one thing does it reach the maps anywhere or u have to be at a router range???
Simply best phone today! But a se k530 user said that his one is super-hit w/ illogical comparison. Really drive me mad!!!!
Seems to be getting worse and worse; perhaps I bought a dud.
Was a fantastic phone for me for about the first 3 months, thats when the problems started to occur.
First the secondary camera stopped working. No biggy, I never use 3g and the primary camera is my camera of choice.
Next, the hand-set mode of speaking on the phone ceases to work. Not too much of a hassle, although constantly using loud-speaker proves a hassle when I want privacy.
And just recently, the screen has been starting to screw up. Every time I "close" the phone, or switch the viewing perspective, the screen shuts off and re-opens. It works, eventually, but it's a real pain.
Probably won't be buying another Nokia any time soon.
