Buddy, The Nokia N95 8GB is mainly available on
contract over here in the UK for 18 months, is branded
on Vodafone UK network and some other networks but you
can pay about £20 pounds to get it debranded by
Vodafone when you are on contract.
But to buy one brand new, debranded already will cost
about £300 pounds at the moment which is expensive for
a mobile phone. I don't know what to do, whether to
get a contract on vodafone and then debrand it when am
on contract or to save enough money to buy it without
contract when the price drops later!!!
What do you say buddy???
There you go mate! "ibnR" just said everything well! To mention again, No PEN key! I just couldn't live without this button copy/cut/paste feature!
Thanks ibnR for bringing up this attention!
Ditch your N95 8GB only if you absolutely cannot live without xenon flash and you hate sliders (since you are ok with storage so I don't want to mention it again). Other than that it's all compromises - smaller screen, smaller keypads, softer speakers, little less battery juice, no music keys, no PEN key.
Opera mini worked like this:
Key in the URL -> Opera server capture the webpage -> resize webpage -> send to your phone. In other words, using opera mini you're not going to browse the original webpage anymore, but good thing is it's optimized for mobile devices.
I prefer nokia web browser, excellent.
Hahaha! I'm really sorry mate! Well, like I used to say nothing is perfect even with this mobile phone! It's your call buddy! For me. N95-2 looks better with its design and form factor! I'm just curious buddy, why shifting to N82?
Hey guys, i'm right about the the two speaker positions cuz i've just check the N82 and nokia have corrected it by putting both in the same side. Thank you nokia. And by the way, witch one is better betwen Opera Mini 4 and the N95 8GB initial browser?
So why nokia puts two high speakers In this phone? In that position? while multimedia fonctions like music and video are in landscape mode. If high speakers quality is not important, they'd put one strongest on it.
Mate, to stay update with the latest n-gage games sign up here https://www.n-gage-news.com/N-Gage/country.aspx?NPID=2041 . None so far as of todate! Cheers!
Mate, another aspect you might want to consider before throwing up your N82 for N95-2:
Memory expansion & Data transfer speed:
N95-2 internal memory up to 8 GB with a transfer speed using USB data cable of 460 kbps.
N82- with external expansion memory of microSD. Transfer speed using conventional card reader/writer of 2,300 kbps
1. This is the actual speed I got from transferring a MP4 movie DVD. Wherein, transferring using card reader is 5 x faster than USB data cable.
2.I found this Testimonial, N82 doesn't have any limitation in memory card capacity http://www.intomobile.com/2007/11/17/brief-i-reassure-you-the-nokia-n82-supports-microsdhc.html .
Other than this...Nokia N95-2 is a top choice!
You can check for your available firmware update here http://www.nokia.co.uk/A4226014 . Click on "Can I update", on Step 2 , enter your product code and click "GO".
Hi there mate! I got nothing much. Still got the usual stuffs TimeBar, Advanced Device Locks, NStarter, Remind Me!
For movies, I got Terminator II, Matrix I, Die Hard I, Bad Boy I, Gladiator, Assassins & The Negotiator!
For Games - Sensible Sudoku, Accelerinvaders, Snakes & SRE
ei looks like nobody can degrade us here (N95 8gb users)
maybe until something better comes...
but for now this is the best...
st_jorge may i know what are the applications you have in your mobilephone..
The choice is very simple buddy.
If you really want a balanced device and can live without xenon flash, go for N95 8GB. If you absolutely want xenon flash, N82. If you're touch screen die hard fans, W960.
There's no perfect device. Just choose the one you want. :-)
PS: Just my own opinion, if you absolutely want touch screen, you ARE going to compromise quite a lot like 5MP camera, GPS, VGA 30fps video shooting, and speedy GUI. Choose accordingly. :-)
FLASH DISK DRIVE(FDD) OR HARD DISK DRIVE(HDD)
I think I would I agree that N95-2 uses Flash Disk Drive instead of Hard Disk Drive. Just like USB Flash Disk using chipsets and software in storing data electronically! While HDD is in form of rotating mechanical disc with spindle. This is the reason why Nokia N91 is pretty much heavier!
Where cud i download d latest firmware? Ver 15.0.015
Pls teach me how.. I've got my phone a while ago tnx.
Respect Buddy!!! Respect!!! I am very grateful for your
quick response to my problem, I really appreciate that
a lot. Thanks a lot in advance. By the way, I am in London and the network carrier that I am looking to get the Nokia N95 8GB or Sony Ericsson W960i is Vodafone UK.
One more thing bro, what do you think of the Nokia N82??? Any good comparing it with the Nokia N95 8GB or the Sony Ericsson W960i!!!
Now I am stuck between the Nokia N95 8GB or the Sony Ericsson W960i and probably Nokia N82??? What would be your honest personal opinion on which one to go in for a long term use???
I will keep in touch, u are a real help!!! PLEASE
REPLY ME WITH AN ANSWER ASAP!!!
Yes, N95-2 comes with pre-installed Nokia Map. You can also install Google Map Freeware. But for Route66 it's a Shareware!
Watching movie with the onboard speaker isn't practical, as it's not enough to give even 50% of the true quality of a movie with good soundtrack. Oh the other hand, having the speakers on one side isn't practical as well, as anything can cover it and left only 1 speaker speaking. Moreover, videos captured by N95 8GB are all in mono, you don't need both speakers positioned in stereo.
To give the best result, get a headphone to watch movie, or else it'll be a waste for such a good phone. Think, if speakers can give good quality entertainment, ipod would have came with speakers already.
I see your point buddy! While it's true a better position for listening audio is in Portrait mode coz of the location of two speakers while viewing video is better in landscape mode! The effect of audio quality is very minimal and tolerable! And most likey you wouldn't even noticed the difference! hahaha! Cheers!
