Totaly understand, and thanx for some of those details ive been searching for the name of the Freescale chip N81 has every where.
Overall im saying N81 is better. The N91 proved to be the best because when it came there was no EU Volume Restriction law which N81 has had to by and obviously its audio chipset has now suffered because of this more than i450 but like you said you can't realy spot the difference.
In my opinion the i450 is a great model and ive advised a mate of mine to get it, it looks like a very promising device BUT all in all N81 is much better value for money than i450.
I'm not against you, but it seem your information is not clear. So I want correct this.
Base on pdadb.net and mobile-review.com
1. [CPU N81 Freescale i.MX31 369 Mhz] [CPU i450 Texas Instruments OMAP 2431 330 Mhz]
that not mean N81 is better. You can check benchmark at mobile review. And i450 is better in some area.
2. [Ram N81 is 96] [Ram i450 is 64(wireless module) + 32(smartphone front)] again, not say which is better. Go to benchmark.
3. RMAA test on N91 is better than any other mobile phone by now. i450 come close to second and behind by other phone (N81 is one of them)
but don't take it serious. Human ear can't figure out this diff and that result may vary in each phone.
So what deal? seem "Test unit of N91 and i450 are better than N91 in sound quality" is more suitable.
4. N91 is loudest moblie phone, icaka said "Low volume means low power, low power means high noise and due to amp going to its limits - high THD". so N91 is better because noise is lower.
N81 is a great phone, well balance with games WiFi sound and display and battery.
but if come to music and sound quality, there is somthing better.
Please let me know :-
1. From where the SEARCH apps may be download. 2. Can it record conversation during calls. 3. Ability to run google map apps. 4. Recording of FM as G600. 5. Durability and scratch resistance ability. Thanks.
Thats so cute,you think your outdated,slow, HDD using, poor screen,poor keypad, brick, unecessarily big,small screen, low RAM, low battery, hardly multitasking capable, and heavier N91-8GB is better than N81! LMAO! Biggest load of trash ive heard! Now look i know the i450 yes has a slight edge in music over the N81 but even Mobile-Review said its a hardly noticeable difference,so did Eldar, SO GET OVER IT!
And the only difference between the N81 and N91 is the volume, N81 is a bit softer but THATS IT!
At the end of the day NO ONE (UNLESS YOU'RE A NUMPTY) buys a phone just for music. Thats why N81 is better since it goes the extra distance for Video, WiFi, More RAM, and the well placed Music keys. And most reviews AND forums do say the N81 is overall the better one.
I agree with john.I owned N91 8GB and the sound quality is incredible.N81 have a dedicated audio dsp chip but unfortunately its not sounded even closer to N91 cuz of powerful amplifier and better audio software.
So TSPZ listen carefully N91 8GB always better than yours device.mind it.
i dont hav an i450..i have a 8GB nokia n91! and my phone is far better than your n81 in terms of music..u know y?becoz though nokia used the same audio chip in your poor n81, my n91 has got an amplifier that's making the sound & sonic experience great!it's FAR louder than n81...
im just fair in my opinion...Samsung's i450 is better than n81 because of the B&O amplifier..u can read other websites review
if u want..yes, n81 beast i450 is some aspects like wi-fi, etal..but when it comes to MUSIC, i450 is FAR SUPERIOR..this mobile phone focused on MUSIC ALONE..not MUSIC AND GAMING...NOT MUSIC & VIDEO...JUST MUSIC!
admit that you're a nokia sales agent..there's nothing to be ashamed of..LOL
I just bought the i450, but when i playing music, i can't heard the SMS sound come in. Only vibration. Please help. Thanks
dont believe in that tsepz guy...he's probably a sales agent of nokia..G810 is not yet out making i450 the best smratphone / music phone from samsung..
LMAO! Once again you show that you know nothing,i got the latest CorePlayer v1.2 cracked so its free and full version!
Oh wow charging via USB,lol its fine i prefer charging with the proper charger whilest USB is plugd-in.
On the other hand your i450 doesn't have the Search app plug-in in the Stand By, doesnt have gaming keys, has a SLOWER CPU, has less RAM (that alone makes the N81 the better Multitasking Smartphone), and atleast i have easy access to Music, Gaming keys and Navi-wheel without having to open the slide OH YES AND the N81 has the better longer lasting battery.
And NO i450 is NOT the best Samsung,the best is the upcoming G810.
guys i got the samsung i450 today !!!
my thoughts so far:
Doesn't look as great as i expected
Double slide is cool
Built in memory ONLY 25 MB, DONT FORGET TO GET A MICRO SD CARD WITH IT!
Screen is great
The phone comes bare, no ringtones, no pictures, no games, etc. However there are an adequate number of programs.
Im going to check out the audio quality next. However, i need to get a card. Can someone confirm if this works with SDHC cards? Thanks
yes, unlike the "all-around" n81, i450 charges via USB..also, u can play high quality WMV files unlike the "all-around" n81 (the option is to download a separate software like coreplayer which u cant get for free).
this is the best samsung phone today..
PLZ tell me
Does this mobile support third party software?
plz send UR answers to mu mail..
hey guys, i need to know one thing, it is really important. Can you please tell me if the samsung i450 charges via usb? i.e. can you charge it by plugging it into the usb port on the computer?
If so is it 5V?
You numpty the N95 is A Multimedia convergance device! N81 is fully advertised as a MUSIC AND GAMING Device!
Poor audio quality? You obviously KNOW NOTHING OF ITS HARDWARE! Its got THE VERY SAME DEDICATED Audio Toshiba DAC-33 DSP Chip of the N91! Both N81 and N91 are top music devices you numpty! Have you seen the N81-8GB S-Edition it comes with BOSE headphones!! The N81 headphones also come with their own remote control and their own 3.5mm jack for extention.
The headphones themselvs are crap but people buy their own headphones nowhere days, Senhieser, BOSE, B&O etc. . . Now get over it, N81 is a music phone EVEN THE MUSIC PLAYER AUTOSTARTS WHEN BOOTING UP THE PHONE!!
phone sucks. doesnt do much. closing the slide doesnt make the phone go back to the main screen. the middle rotating key is too tough.Camera sucks.cant listen to radio while surfing the net. cant use headphones to change station. Or maybe it does all this but no user manual was in box and shop i bought it from doenst care. i hate chatz cellular- even though it was my choice.
You numpty! You listen to the wrong people,its clearly written even on the N81's box that its a Music aod Gaming device!, the Marketing Manager said the same in its Q&A ,thats all the proof you need. OH and even the N81 billboard adverts and TV ad its written: GAMING,MUSIC AND VIDEO.
