NOKIA.. CAN YOU??
i don't get what r u trying to say. As far E90 concern it has 1500mAh battery hence its battery life is good
to the the person below me.....oh yeah? nokia's e90 has 800 by 352 internal screen...bet nokia does not care about e90's battery life huh?....lol
I don't know what you people get by showing fault in Nokia after listening complaint about N95 8GB i'm sure they don't own this phone first of all this phone is not slow as people here said and if the man own this phone than why he don't that Nokia web browser is based on safari web browser that is same as iphone second thing N95 is smaller in size compared to iphone and weight of iphone is 140gm and wt of N95 is 127gm although N95 8GB is not slim as far as GPS concern N95 8GB is Not for every day GPS use if you have car better buy car GPS system N95 8GB is already heavily loaded but still rivals want more features as far display concern Display is very good adding VGA resolution will make display 4 times more power hungry for eg O2 flame has VGA display and has 1650mAH battery still it don't last more than two days so please stop posting crap.
Features are great, but GPS is useless actually if u really need it , better buy dedicated receivers and put in ur car. construction and buttons design are very suck. 6500 slider looks alot more better. so , i hope nokia will use better material to build such a high tech phone.
Let me put it down this way.....FIRST DISADVANTAGE-outdated gps...other companies like asus use sirf star3 chipset...N95 uses star2. SECOND DISADVANTAGE-incompatibility with 3rd party software like tomtom,etc.THIRD DISADVANTAGE-nokia has intentionally crippled the voice assist and other features to suck more money just after it has made you pay through the nose for the phone. Voice assisted navigation is free on other phones like the htc touch cruise and all other gps enabled phones other than nokia.4TH DISADVANTAGE-just put an old n80 display next to a n958gb and compare the two screens.....you will understand what washed out means.Nokia reverted to qvga displays just because they are a whole lot less expensive to produce.It had started on the right path with the n80 but then realised that since the other manufacturers were still dishing out qvga...they thought "hey why bother we can still get good money for these crappy screens".FIFTH DISADVANTAGE-hold an n95 8gb in your hand,feel it,roll it about in your hand...forget its a nokia....now compare it to a samsung slider...tell me very honestly which sliding mechanism you prefer...the smooth crisp motion of the samsung or the wobbly movement of the n95.but dont let me influence you...just close your eyes and feel them both in your hand. And before I get flamed I hate samsung for their hopeless battery life...im just talking about the construction here.....tell me in all honesty which one feels better to open and close.LASTLY after six months you will have forgotten all about n95 8gb and will be wondering what price you will get for the phone which you bought for nearly a thousand dollars and will be grateful if someone offers you a couple of hundred dollars for it which you will use along with 600 to 700 dollars more of your hard earned money to buy another hot phone of the moment. Would you accept such a drastic reduction in resale value in less than a year for your home audio system or even an expensive watch? Its all in the marketing and kudos to the mobile manufacturers for creating the image that you are horribly outdated if you use the same mobile for more than a year so that you keep buying their stuff. just my two cents worth. btw I use the original n95 and a n80....and i still prefer to view images on my n80. my black n80 looks newer than my n95 whose cheap silver paint has flaked away after less than 5 months....and i dont even think of using its gps .....what a joke....ull be an old man by the time it logs on and good luck trying it in a car.
To all paid Non N95 8GB user
for sure none of the people here own this phone just visit SMAPE.COM were G800 had lost battle with N95 and K850i in terms of display also in many cases Old N95 perform well tham G800 and k850i (N95 lost in few cases and in Night shot that may be bcoz of strong JPEG comprasion and LED flash) no matter what Nokia introduced u people never going to say good about Nokia also N95 8GB has best QVGA display and its brightness is very good Samsung G800 has poor viewing angle k850i has bit brighter display bcoz of 2.2" diagonal so stop posting crap if you don't know about this phone
Oh man this phone is so big.....Cant they make slim phone with 5 mp camera and all other things just like samsung. Samsung rocks in that case...
I've played around with a friend's N95 8GB. Impressive armada of applications. All the bells and whistles you could want in a phone. However, the screen is poor even if it's big. Contrary to the review, the colours look washed out. And the entire unit feels plasticky, like you would come to expect of a Nokia handset. Looks the part but doesn't feel the part of a mobile that costs in the top-tier.
nice phone... but i'll stick with my 5mp cybershot with XENON FLASH
and by the way, N95 is still the Reigning 5MP King!
sorry SE fans... =)
Sef, u are talking about N95-1(the original)
GSMarena pertains the "N95 8Gb display".
Calling N95 display excellent while in fact Samsung G800 has much much better display than the latter is a very terrible insanity. Nokia's Display edges are only the legibility under the sun, but comparing displays's color render, quality, sharpness and color reproduction even the 16M sheet on the N95 has not much to brag about - one word: biased!
The one thing I can never get my head around is why GSMARENA is sooo biased. As if Nokia and SE are the only manufacturers out there...
I find that the KU990 (Viewty) has much better performance to offer, and the SHARP models (3.2Mpx) 903SH and 904SH had a CCD that still kicks butt after two years. And they all are GSM as well...
Oh, and what about the i-mobile 902? No one ever considers it in their reviews, but with a 5Mpx SONY(!) CCD it has crisper details than NOKIA could ever dream of.
Good grief, you guys MUST get paid by the big 4's if you continue on like this...
As others have mentioned the review is blatantly wrong about GPS compatibilty with 3rd party offerings. Smartcom GPS, Google Maps, Amaze, Route 66, and Co-Pilot all work with the internal GPS and no doubt there are a few others that also will that I am unaware of.
So is this one going to work? I ask only for information.
The original Nokia N95 (Nokia N95-1) was a pile of garbage. The device was unstable, oversized and frankly ugly when compared with offerings from Samsung, Motorola and LG. Functionality was wide ranging, but the GPS software's over-reliance on mobile internet services was unacceptable and the fact that the CCD for the camera was a 2.6MP unit with only software enhancements to make the images 5MP was appalling when you consider the price. The poor plastic materials are a REAL shame when compared with so-called budget models such as the 6300 or the 6500 Slide, which have a metallic construction and so as handsets give a reassuring feel of quality not seen in an 'N' series handset since the N70.
The N95 8GB has a hell of a lot to live up to, because other recent N series handsets have just let the side down in a BIG way.
in the review it is mentioned that the internal gps receiver is not compatible with other programs.. but I'm using my n95's inGps with googlemaps and route66 with ease....
in this review there are 7 pages in multimedia menu but in mobile-review's review there are only 6 pages (no Videos page).
The review says this:
"In other words: if you want to make use of the built-in receiver you have to rely on Nokia maps. In case you want to go for another software solution you will have to purchase an external Bluetooth GPS receiver."
Well that ain't true. Nokia is a b?+ch and they want you to think that you can use only their software. I live in Croatia, and the only GPS software you can buy in croatia for N95 is GARMIN GPS SOFTWARE! Nokia maps do not support Croatia.
