i must say this is one ugly phone.... what year are now to tolerate this? 2008?
Well I c Nokia 78 is the another major aspect of NOkia Nseries , anther factor insha Allah i sense dis fone would bea grater hit follwing by the successor N 73, 1 thing What every 1 should understand is that smart phones look some what bullky ,it seemes every 1 who made PDA couldnt make it slim cut phones bcoz the features and options wont allow them , so this is what Smart Phones deserive and the smart phones users i mean the reall ones who got more useful on it . doesnt boother abt desin ,its the Wi_fi , GPS , FM Transmitter , VPN they need . so people who argue dis s bulky 1 go for series 40 1 , not N series nor E series ,
well, u can't compare nokia with se cause the spec lose alot to nokia. just see the hardware nokia use, the phone oem, all are big different... se phone just have a "looks" only, maybe se phone have nice design. BUT after played 1 hour i Warranty those player will stop playing it cuase the feature not many changes . Boring
PLAY JAVA GAMES ARE FUN?
IF LIKE THAT, N-GAGE WILL MORE FUN LOL
CAN PLAY LIKE online games.EVEN the games also better than THOSE JAVA GAMES!
cause it is a SIS games
Yeah, GSMArena can turn down Nokia, SE and anyone else as well, if they want to do so. But keep in mind that manufacturers dont have to assemble their phones properly nor test them before launching. And why? Because market fluctuates so fast that most people buy the "perfect" phone on Monday and replace it with something better on Tuesday.
why GSMarena give bad impression with the N78 because Nokia N series are high end mobile phone, thus Nokia should build it with high ergonomic and build quality to suit the high price tag
I can't see the method how ArenaGuys evaluate the weight of a phone. As far as I remember they considered SE G502 too light with its 83g and now N78 is heavy with 101g? Then what is ideal?
nokia is going downhill in my books. seems like every phone looks like the N81 now. an ugly design and a finger print magnet. give us matte colors and a different keypad config and I'll buy a new nokia soon. otherwise, SE is where its at.
man i love the fact that nokia are no making it easier to change the covers of the phones!!! the whole back panel comes off easily!!! thats great!!! thanks nokia
I already had a chance to test this phone a few weeks ago ..
It's indeed a great phone!
i still want to buy nokia n78 to try it, even if this preview arent allowed to accept thi cellphone, but is take so long to vome tom Brazil....haah
everything they purchased there arent purchased here 'cause Brazil always taked to long to come anything here...
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2008Read SE C702 Review. Its keypad is just a nightmare, same goes to C902: very hard to press. Do... moreHuh, I thought C702's keypad and camera are better (although the N78 is still a LOT better in terms of video recording). I think the material on the N78 is better as the C702 feels cheap. But GSM arena are right about the keypad on the N78, it feels very awkward and so do the call keys.
Read some of the unbiased in-depth reviews:
both mention good enough keypad ergonomics and allround in-hand feeling. But GSMArena is offended by Nokia, so their review comes as negative...
Read SE C702 Review. Its keypad is just a nightmare, same goes to C902: very hard to press. Do you guys mention this? Nokia n78 keys are small (very much like SE W880i) but have perfect tactile feedback, they are easy to type.
And some more facts:
106 x 48 x 15.5 with 2,2 screen, no wi-fi, worse camera module
113 x 49 x 15.1 with bigger 2,4 screen, wi-fi, FM transmitter and it is a smartphone after all
Some qoutes from GSMArena review:
SE: "Sony Ericsson C702 is not among the slimmest phones, at 15.5 mm thick, yet relatively lightweight at 105 grams. Generally, we are pleased with the ergonomics of the handset."
Nokia: "Nokia N78 packs the bar form factor measuring 113 x 49 x 15.1mm. Those, combined with the weight of 101.8g make it look slightly on the larger side."
"The wobbly back panel, the uncomfortable keypad and the not very comfortable call and end keys aren't exactly what you would expect from a 350 euro handset."
C702 have even worse keypad, check by yourself, and comparable pricing. But this wasn't mentioned.

well n78 is not a new deal i think getting a cell phone with 5mp is not a great idea u can have nice camera slim edition for any company of 10mpx wht u want and im also the fan of nokia but now a days sony is attracting me alot and another thing regarding n78
Please webster admin wahteva please compare this phone n73 if this cellphone get success it will be the victory cell phone over n73 and n73 is still on the chart like a charm and fam no doubt with nice loudspeaker symbian camera 3.2 bla bla bla but just no have any fm transmeter
no offence, but this phone not worth, better buy n82 black, better spec with almost same price...nokia making their phones compete each other
gsmarena is on war with nokia... their changing perspectives... i was a fan of u before but now... i don't know...
