how about a htc p3300 also known as xda orbit,mda compact 3.
they are quite good,and would cover most of those requests.
It seems we have a lot of experts here, or maybe just kids who do not know better. But for those that have some savy here is a question? I need a good phone, in my opinion a phone woith good extras would need the following: Able to synchonise with outlook tasks and apointments, have a reasonable camera, have a built in GPS (Realy Handy for the man on the move), a reasonable voice recorder for meetings and most importantly be able to use as a phone.
Any sensible person out there with ideas?
3 more months waiting for the Eten Glofiish X800 to uncrown the N95 as best phone ?
i hear this phone grinds like jupiters feet across the desert, not to mention it looks like a bit of a brick....the gps doesnt find anything other than the floor as you throw the useless thing at it....all in all i wouldnt even use this thing as a door stop

yups. i'm quite surpise with n95 after using it.
i own n70, n73, n80 and n91 before. they hang sometimes or lag.
but the new n95. is much faster. wont have the laggy thing as like those in Nseries. only thing is, the video! red LED, for?
i hope there is a software upgrade for there or something -_-
In regards to Lisa, congratulations, yes the N-series has had a lot of problems but the N-95 is nokia's flag ship phone, its their creme de la creme, and if they had ballsed it up, it would repel a quarter of their sales base due to their rep crashing into the ground like a tonne of bricks.
Im impressed that you put aside all the rumours and faults and took it anyway, its exactly what i had to do, i work in carphone, and i hated the N-series for all the complaints they made me deal with, but when the N-95 came out i realised that nokia wont have ruined it due to so much riding on it.
So far I have no complaints, the video quality is top rate, the screen resolution is beautiful, and so far the symbian software hasnt crashed/frozen/slow mo'd once. the gps isnt as good as a tomtom but then its a phone, what do u want?? its gr8 for general driving and hiking tho.
Iv always been a sony ericsson man, iv owned everything from the k500i to the w950i and all inbetween, but i think the n-series has taken the podium from now on, nokia have produced the most functional handset on the market, now thats a come back.
i m currently using N80ie still having doubts as whether ti upgrade?? sigh....for that price, i might as well grab a lap top..^_^
I was wondering that too chris... I wan t to film stuff in the dark - but want the normal light on not the red one!!? Anyone help?
I work in a phone store too and despite several colleagues telling me about the software issues on the N series... I got it, and think its fabulous...
i work at optus an every customer wants to no about the N95, who cares about the SE K800, im a ericson user but the N95 includes GPS, 5 mega pix and many more killer functions. how in the world is the K800 even matched up to it.. soon ericson will try match up to the nokia standards. but personaly i like the walkman phones, saves buyin a ipod ye!..
first of all,
there is nothing perfect or total complete .. so stop comparing between n95 and other mobiles ..!!
it's the best in phone in the world today .
wow! a lot of cry babies in here lol...all in all this is a great device and I am very pleased with this phone. However, unlike other people out there I dont have high expectations with its features.
If you want full function GPS? go get yourself a real GPS device, you want good quality pictures? go get a 10MP camera... I could go on forever, so stop with the whinning its just a phone to make phone calls, and with great features.
It takes to long to arrive in eastern Europe. Here in Croatia still didn't arrive.
Had this phone just under a week now, and i honestly think its amazing! you wont believe the video quality until you have seen in, really is amazing, cant fault the camera at all, brilliant fone. if you think its going to be too big for your pocket etc.. stop worrying that was one thing i thought about but its just fine! 10/10 without doubt, nothing even comes close.. yet!!!
Hmm. I'm a Motorola user, but this phone made me a Nokia now. Well changing subject huh, Why you SE fans dont go to your SE site and annoy your own ppl there, I just say 'cause Im just readin K800 here and there and walkman there and here, ppl if you wanna hear music buy a Ipod(or any mp3 player), if you want a great flash buy a digit camera, and wtf Its true the batt is bad but cmon is just a little piece of plastic with other stuff in it and the tasks this phone makes are a lot, even a laptop(well just like an xample pcs are far better than a phone) its batt last like 3 hours max that if your laptop auto low the contrast and you aint listening to music. And is good to hear differents opinions but from N95 owners not SE owners. Peace
PD:Im not a N95 owner, yet.(But I like the phone is good)
for someone who says k800i is better:
so you prefer a phone with a good flash only? :/
And if nokia n95 with Carl Zeiss optics is not up to standard.
then sony digi camera with Carl Zeiss optics is not up to standard too. and k800i without Carl Zeiss optics will more more more not up to standard as well:/ right? does it make sense?
dont tell me sony digi camera is more lousier then sony with a "ericsson" behide. am i right? think about it..
as for battery life. you've got the money to buy this phone, dont tell me you dont have the money to buy a spare battery eh? :/
and as you can see, SE keep coming out 2megapixel phone or walkman phone.. what is that for? is like changing the design only? SE is not upgrading.. in which place does SE win\ nokia?
flash? battery life? this 2?
and for nat, i do agree with you that n80 and n73 is a bit slow and hangs sometime.. cause i used them before. but currently i just changed to n95, it is much faster and 9.5/10 wont hang cause it's a 3.5G phone. just a highlight for this phone "it wont hang that much like n80 or n73" it's like 2-3sec faster then those two phone. nokia have a bit of improvement on n95 for the lag and hanging thing. and once again, nothing is perfect. each phone have their step back. you cant have a prefect phone.
and also n95's size has all in one fuction and nokia manage to make this phone much faster then n73. less lag and hang. so why do we have to complain so much for?
honestly this phone have some bad points, example "for video recording, we cant on the flash but the quailty is good on daylight and i also agree battery life is damn little but you can buy a spare battery.." just bare this in mind nothing is perfect.
recently got n95,second one thou,had to exchange first one due to
it crashing,after this mishap im still happy with my choice.working in the mobile industry we get alot of phones in for repair.we get k800i by the bucketloads for software problems and k800's just going dead.
the n95 is the market leader at the moment,until sony can catch up with a similiar or better model,k800i outdated and needs a revamp.
