Review Nokia N-Gage. Part 1
Portable stereo handsfree
Nokia N-Gage, live pictures
Nokia is always looking for new markets and offers new variants of already known devices. Accessories, multimedia devices and game consoles (starting from this year) fall under comprehension diversification. The company has seen big potential in the youth audience. The majority of products are headed exactly to it. As against aged people young people buy phones actively, often change them and look for custom model. During last years the lion's share of sales falls on this market segment. The importance of young people is impossible to be underestimated, but on the other hand all the attempts to release exactly youth device became fatal.
Among Nokia’s products one can remember music box - Nokia 5510. It has been predicted for big success, but the market fate was other. The reincarnation of this device, Nokia 3300 was also unsuccessful. The product remained a niche solution. The emphasis was laid on music listening in this two products, but Nokia went further in its new attempt to gain new market share.
What, in your opinion, needs average statistical young man or young girl? Try to remember what devices they use, what are fond of. The majority will remember music listening, intercourse by cell phone (mainly SMS-messages), internet and all other leisure types including different PC games. Clearly that one device couldn’t replace PC, phone, player; it would need performing too much different tasks. But on the other hand, it’s possible to create a device, which will perform such tasks partially, so has appeared N-Gage project.
Smartphone Nokia 7650 was taken as a basis for game console, its adaptation for new tasks seemed the least expensive. On the other hand the form-factor was obvious; the device should be horizontal for its comfortable placing in two hands, as it is more convenient in games, which could occupy several hours.
If to take up N-Gage’s composition you’ll see some similarity with Nokia 3300. For inexperienced users this similarity forms the meaning about similarity, i.e. the devices differ in minor features. But that’s wrong. The differences are in the software, N-Gage has installed Symbian, that makes the device smartphone and in no way usual phone.
Console’s dimensions are rather big (133.7x69.7x20.2 mm), but it’s little by thickness. Many are deceived its seeming size. N-Gage weighs more than usual phone, but its weight is comparable to smartphones’ (137g). If to compare N-Gage with competing consoles, it will look attractively.
And now imagine, device’s developers have to combine several opposite features in it, on the one hand they have to make keys maximal convenient in games, on the other hand the keyboard should be fit for typing SMS-messages. Clearly, it’s necessary to choose priorities, so the palm was given to game features. If to take the console in hand, the big left finger will lie on gamepad, and the same right finger will lie on key 5. It was specially lifted up over the keyboard. Its form was also changed. Pressing this key in games means OK. Lower and to the left locates key 7, which also differs. Its function in games is Cancel and browse up.
Such keyboard design helps in games, but it is inconvenient when typing SMS-messages, one can adapt to it. Especially inconvenient are outer keys (3,6,9), they are too sunk in the case. Keyboard’s backlight is red, the designations are drawn with mid size font. It is not always well visible in different light conditions.
Joystick supports pressing on in, plus it is 8-way, that will be useful in games. In case of usual navigation in becomes 4-way, plus pressing. Send call and release keys are placed above the device, on on each side of the screen. It is not typical placement, but reasoning from the general mounting of elements it is not the worst. When using N-Gage you always think the developers was creating game console, the rest of functions was made maximum comfortable using vestigial principle.
Finishing talking about the keyboard it’s necessary noting it is convenient in games, satisfactory when typing SMS and relatively comfortable when dialing a number. Anyway you should adapt to such design. This process will take several days.
The phone has separate keys for music player, radio and main menu. The confirmation the phone is not the main function in this device serves its realization. To talk by N-Gage is possible using handsfree (stereo, with 2 connectors) and without it. But in the last case you have to hold the device side part toward yourself. I’ll try describing this more minutely, on the remote side-frame is placed speaker, you should press the ear to it. So, the microphone is below, but on the other side, near to mini-USB connector.
It’s rather strange feeling when you see a person, holding the phone in such way. But the external manifestations are not very important. Speaker’s volume is excessive, the device should be rotated traditionally. But here arise other problem, you hear badly the interlocutor, and he doesn’t hear you distinctly. It results it’s impossible talking traditionally using N-Gage, you should use handsfree function or use portable handsfree. The developers didn’t consider this lack serious, as young people prefer SMS-messages to call, and they have huge experience using headphones, so such way of communication doesn’t cause seizure. Such opinion is disputable, as this game console will be considered as cell phone by many. The purchase of N-Gage becomes impossible for this audience.
You can see mini-USB connector on the left side of the device. Connection to PC is realized using it, the cable is included into the standard kit, but it also can be found in usual PC shops. Charger connector is located near to it.
Power on/off button is located on the right device’s side.
On the butt-end of the device are located 2 headset connectors and an outlet. It’s a speaker for handsfree function. Such placement makes the sound louder in this mode, it’s comfortable to talk, especially if to compare it with other models from Nokia.
Some words about the screen. It displays up to 4096K colors and its resolution makes 176x220 pixels (30x42mm). The picture is bright, graphically. It fades on the sun, but the screen is readable (TFT). The matrix shows itself in the best way, the picture is live, no artifacts are visible on the screen when the personage moves fast. If to talk about usual applications the screen displays up to 6 text lines, text labels for soft keys and big header. The screen is similar to other smartphones from Nokia.
This model has changeable face panels, but it was impossible to find notification about this feature on the official Nokia’s site. The panels are easy to change, but they are fixed surely. The keyboard is also changeable, that’s a big plus for the device.
Having released the back panel you’ll SIM-card holders, MMC-card slot and also battery. The main minus of the device is MMC-slot covered by the battery, so you should turn off the phone when changing card (it’s necessary when changing game). Such holder is not typical for game consoles, neither for cell phones, it’s Nokia’s know-how. But it seems like the reason of such MMC-slot’s placement is the reduction of development price, because the device shouldn’t process card change and corresponding errors.
The device has lithium-ionic battery BL-5C, capacity makes 850 mAh. According to the manufacturer the battery is capable to provide up to 4 hours of talk time and up to 200 hours of standby time. The device operated up to 3 days in case of 35 minutes of calls and up to 45 minutes of using other functions. If you are using handsfree and bluetooth the device will operate up to 2 days.
The console is capable to provide up to 6 hours of game time. But the sound can be played thru headphones or thru speaker, so the power consumption is less in the first case.
In order to receive real data about operation time of the device in game mode it was given to a child, which tortured it for several every evening. The results were rather designing. So fully charged battery runs down after 2-2.5 hours of playing. The difference in 30 minutes depends on game type, in 2D games it’s grater, in 3D games it’s less.
Curiously, during playing the console warns about discharged battery, after 1 message you can play about 15 min. So if you are going to use N-Gage as game console and as cell phone, you should recharge it every day. Active users, who plan gaming a lot, should purchase additional battery. Time of full recharging is less than 2 hours.
In radio mode the device is capable to operate up to 20 hours, in music mode – up to 8.
Battery level indication is not always correct, it can change rather abruptly, especially when using different functions during small intervals, for example, little conversation, the gaming during 15 min and etc.
Some words about MMC-cards. The device support only following cards: 32, 64 and 128Mb. Memory card is not included into the standard kit. Only phone’s memory is available by default.
its very good mobile that all you want is in,N-GAGE....is magnificent,the art of the engineer,the combination of dark n bright.Compact,All in one Phone...and yet,please,NOKIA KNOWS WHAT BEST FOR HUMAN.ITS HUMAN TECHNOLOGY.
changeable cover are now available in indonesia !! for only rp 180 ribu!!
murah banget cuk!!! ayo beli!!!
cool fone !! try the sims bustin out game!! is the another version of the sim city pc games!! and also try the sega rally!! cool fone bright screen!! is better than 3660 screen actually!
N-Gage maybe big but its cool man.If only it doesn't haf the stupid sideway-talking this maybe a good phone 4 a pure gamer.The speaker is clearer than ever!If you compare this to the QD version,this N-Gage will be 99% better.It has Mp3 player,RealOne n a few more normal application that most phones have.It may not have VGA camera but who cares?You can always buy a digital camera to produce a better picture than those of built-in camera phones.There are more portable game decks nowadays but this is still the best,in my opinion.My suggestion is that if you are not a gamer don't buy this phone.
I have bought the third N-gage. 2 for my friends and 1 for myself. It's the coolest phone for me.Now,I can enjoy Mp3, load FM Radio, or play my favorite game.Moreover,I can play mutiplayer Mode with my friend, It's cool.
Someone said that the N-gage's speaker is not better than 6230's but they're wrong.N-gage's speaker is the best !
I think N-gage is the best choosen for everyone.
Well, I've had 7650, then 3650, and now I'm going for N-gage. But why? Becouse N-gage is 100% FUN. It has GREAT mp3 and FM radio (you may use standard earpices from your discman) and even better games. People say that these games can be played on 3650, 3660, 6600, SX 1, Sendo X, and that is true. Only thing is that they are NEVER going to be as smooth and COOL, as on N-gage(doesn't matter if the screen on 6600 has 65 536 colors, games are buzzy, and bugy, and the sound brakes, it is just not the effect you wanted to get). One more thing. The screen on this phone is almoust as bright and colorful as one on 6600, and it is the same as the one found on SX1. i do not know how, but I've compared these screens, and there is no diference between SX1's and N-gage's screens, although the one on 6600 is somewhat more colorful. Display is better then 3650's and it is the same as 3660's. So, yes, Nokia did lied when said that 3660 has 65 536 colors, becouse it doesen't, or maybe it does, but than N-gage has 65 536 colors instead of announced 4 096. And no one has ever said that there are changable covers on N-gage, and thet there is also built in USB!!!
Brilliant Phone much better than the Nokia N-Gage QD which sucks. And no it doesn't need a camera, Phones aren't meant to have cameras.
it needs camera without camera all it has is radio and mp3 player
great fone !! sum1 who said the fone is bad is neither cant use the fone or just simply dumb arse!!
i put 256mb on it and stuffed it with 18 official n-gage games and 40 mp3 and still it handle very good the resolution also good for its class way better than 65k in the sonyericson fone.i recomeneded it for ppl who like to play games collect da mp3 and picture wallpaper. put an 128mb or 256 and all of your favourite things are in it!!
This fone is the best thing I ever got in my 17 years!!!! It's worth every buck I paid for it 'n NO, its software is very neat 'n it never 'cracked up' in the 4 monthes I've had it.
i like you product infact i will never use any other one apart fron this product.
but am in us now but on my wan to ghana but i will like to orde for one of your product to nigeria would that be possible?
N-Gage is better or N-Gage QD
I am over 40 but I bought this ngage and fall in love with the phone. Initially, I did find the design a bit weird but no longer when I used to the phone. I'm also having the nokia 6230, so when I record the maximum 4 mins video clip and transfer the clip to ngage via bluetooth. Surprisingly, the video clip is clear and the audio is so clear. In addition, the games are really fun and refreshing, MP3 player runs smoothly, etc...I would recommend to anyone who want a really fun phone, go for this one and you will never regret. If it has a built-in vga camera, then the ngage would be a perfect one.
I have been using this fone for 3 months! It's a very instesting fone ..:
1.Ring tons are very loud
2. The shape is strange but impressed
3.3D excting games
4. Good MP3 and FM radio
5.4096 colors but high TFT resolution...
Overall Ngage is the good phone ! If you are under 30 yeras old,U should try it!
i swear if i won"t lie nokia is still d best so far.for real i can"t do without nokia myself
