Are you retarded or something - Last time I've checked the N95'a camera was way above the rest. Yes, what photo quality is concerned, there may be a dispute - but as a video recorder not even my grand mother will agree with you. And yes the N95 camera can be used as a video light (the battery won't last long thou). And forget SE/Samsung/Motorola, they are totally rubish now (I had them all) - The Sharp 902 may take better pictures under certain conditions but the N95 has simply more 'horse power' (5mp) If reduced to 902's resolution and cleaned/sharpened, the quality is absolute breath taking. Nice one NOKIA :)
well his is muscle phone on all is features even with the adoption of a carl zeiss optics features but a 5mpx camera without a flash nor video light! cammon nokia you ought to have added one. take a look on k850i...anyway sony are better in sound and camera...but just a bit behind with the colour screen...
To "X:" hello again-perhaps you can help me. In Nokia's technical specifications for this phone they use the term "dual CPU." Does that mean two CPUs are running at 332MHz on the same IC or is it only one running at 332MHz to operate the Symbian system and the other to operate telephony at an undisclosed speed.
To FaTih: the display (ie screen) is NOT VGA (480*640 pixels) resolution. I wish it was!! It is in fact QVGA res (240*320). Very few 2.8-3 inch screens have VGA res. In fact there is not a Nokia phone which has a screen of 3 inches or less with VGA res. You have to look to Windows Mobile phones such as Eten X800; I-mate 8150 Ultimate. The reigning champion for screens 3 inches or less has to be Toshiba's G900 with its superb wide VGA screen (480*800). So you have a dichotomy here. Two different schools of thought. WM devices are going for VGA res to make charts, tables and graphs clearer whereas Nokia are going for colour depth- 16 million- all for multimedia!
I think people don't have digital camera thats why they want everything in this phone N95 already does good job in Night but still poor SE fan crying for XENON Flash remember N95 is also a Camcorder so we cannot use xenon flash during video recorder and Most SE phone don't have good video plus 2-3 LED light do not produce enough light for video SE always losses and still losing
dont boast about how led flash does in the dark. xenon flash does produce more better shot in the dark. admit it.
Stu*pid people this phone has powerful L.E.D flash (light emitting diode) but Not as powerful as xenon flash XENON flash spoil image if object is closer than 1 or 2 meters but useful for long distance object (like 3 meters) LED flash is useless if object is far than 2 Meters but useful for low distance object i think no one uses phone for taking shot more than 2 METERS at night time thats why NOKIA used LED flash instead of Xenon Flash and in low light condition N95 does a good job considering that it's a CAM PHONE

its a gud phone, looking forward to it, i already have n95 but the gps aint tht gud, so i hope tht the gps of this one is gud and fast.
Having maps of 100 countries is a gud thing, so now u dont have to download maps from Map Loader.
Lets c how this phone works out to be.
Yes, you are entirely correct.
This is the very reason why I stressed out the fact that this is a non-PDA and implicitly a non-business phone, it is rather a multimedia multitalent for leisure and regular everyday use.
And indeed the test of time is the most eloquent when judging a phone's performances on the long run, but I will give Nokia a little bit of confidence in this respect, given their worldwide reputation. (even if they can go wrong sometimes, and the finishing rather on the cheap side of the original N95 could be one example, as well as the sluggish early S60 OS.)
But, summing up, in the realm of multimedia-oriented phones, this device is currently an undisputed leader, at least until some hidden drawback which will be revealed after extensive use might prove this statement wrong. I just hope it will not be the case.
"X" when you say the N95 8GB is the best non-PDA phone I take that to mean best non-business phone. Windows mobile, QWERTY and touchscreen have come to be intimately associated with business devices. So I have to agree with you; the N95 8GB is the best non-business phone with the proviso that it operates smoothly. It is only when we buy it and put it to the test that we will really know. The Texas Instrument GPS chipset may let the phone down. I feel that it will be the limiting factor on this phone.
I have come to realise that I may have to carry two phones. One for business eg HTC TyTN II and one for pleasure(entertainment/lifestyle) eg N95 8GB. It is difficult to find everything in one phone!
Bottom line is that, after having thousands of phone models in my hands, this is for sure the best phone at this moment in my opinion, there is no competition for it until now, not even close. W960i, LG KU990, Samsung G600, F700 or anything you might think about are simply no match.
The ONLY things it doesn't have judging by today's standards are a touchscreen, a Windows Mobile OS and perhaps a QWERTY input, but then it would have been the perfect phone, and things are never perfect, are they? :)
However this is the best non-PDA phone money can buy TODAY, trust me.
I played with the phone for a while... It definitely looks and feels a lot classier than the original N95. And the screen seems a lot larger, even though the difference seems small on paper, it is actually striking, this is how it should have been in the first place.
My dream phone :) It's too bad that my dreams are not for my pocket...
