yes you are right aditya the n95 costruction is poor the slide is wobley and the phone is very bulky and thick while all the rivals for this phone have very good pannel quality and they look sleeker and much more radical
the sony ericsson w960i can be a much better choice coz the only thing the w960i cant beat over the n95 is i the 3.2mpx camera and gps fetures while the se w960i compensates it with features like touch screen,twin led fash,hand writing recognition, buisness card scanner etc etc. Overall its got a faster processor ,the built quality of the phone is amazeing and it does not at all hang like the n95 8gb as usual.
i just purchased mine today the phone is great and the chrome of the keypad does not peel away like the old n95 but the keypad built of the is very cheap,the battery is upgraded to the old n95 but still needs a lot more of improvement does not last long still and the processor is very slow and highly prone to hanging when the memory is used up more than 3gb.the phone functions great only up to 2gb.
What's the use of built-in 8 GB when you put 200 mp3 files and few videos, this phone hangs and eats out the battery fast. The same thing with Nokia N81 8 GB.
Mp3 player doesn't show the album name. SOmetimes cannot read ID3 tags. Doesn't show album art in some occasions.
the rest of the converter is OK just the currency converter i hate.
I love the phone, only thing is the converter on it is terrible, does anyone know where i can get a decent easy to use version, sort of like the one on the nokia 6300?
to dani original.
I agree that n95 does kind of integrate a lot of things into 1 device but my problem is its not superior in any feature.
gps is not the best of its kind
camera isnt the best - omg stabilityand flash is bad
battery life isnt the best still
video capture isnt the best
OS still slow even after the upgrade.
the sliding mechanism is unreliable
document viewer and editor isnt the best too
the good bits like 8gb memory, large and quality display size were there to compensate for its lack of superiority but that wouldnt do for me.
N95 is like:
" jack of all trades - a master of none "
it was so fun playing with this phone after i updated mine to version 20.0.016. the ASR just great!
Sorry, now i just went out for a while and i was thinking about my last post, so i'm on wi fi now and i realise i would rather have a all in one device like the n95 8GB instead of carrying all those other things around!
I Just played with this for 15 Mins, N-Gage Ashphalt GT ....
it was good then listened to some Music on the Stereo Speakers
then Videod using VGA Video, which chewed the memory!
then saw the GPS it wasnt set but still saw the Globe and the directions.
Then i get Bored........
too many features for me, i wouldnt even use all of them .
for GPS iv got TOMTOM
for Gaming i got PSP
for Video camera i got a Sony Handycam
Camera iv got a Cyber-shot
Music Player is iPod.
i couldnt give all those things up for this N95 8GB .it doesnt feel complete.
nice phone though.
i really need to know is there any color of 8gb aside from black because mine is not black?! answer pls
vry good phone....interesting features...must experience in a life time....
just got my n95 8gb but it was not black, ist there any other color than black?! it was kinda brown something..
Dude...horrible battery life...what the hell is this..Nokia, u can do much better that that!!!
i have one N95 & now im very dissppointed about this hp.sometime phone hang & network
always got problem...
i dont care about the quality of the camera since it can take good pics (maybe not as good as other phones).. but i have no problem taking pics since i always carry my 7MP sony cybershot digicam.. and have my hitachi dvdcam whenever i go to party.. for games and MP3, i have my PSP and ipod..
for me, this is the best in terms of its features..
