i really liked the phone... but would the company lose if they offered a memory card with the unit :( does any one hav any idea about the size of the memory supported? 2GB or 4GB? thanx
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2008yes, I think you've raised some fair points too, but you must be more tactic in your responses.
Hey, if someone starts out that I am Nokia fan or Stu..dpid, SE basher etc. I have react a little but only a little.
There several cases when someone left a post saying that he liked the phone etc. - I just said good look nothing. We all all different and enjoy your phone (and I meant it).
There are trollers here or even SE staff or hired SE ... absolutely fanatics.
There is no way with them to reason.
You started out calling me a basher and now you changed your tone - how long? :)
BTW, I never recommended Nokia or any other phone here. That is also hard to comprehend for these fanatics.
As soon as Se comes out with a decent phone I will tilt my hat to it!
We need good phones!
Unfortunately, recently SE brings out lousy phones for very high price.
W890 (initially sold for 500USD!!!)
- no autofocus
- no flash!!!!
- small screen
- weak speakers
- lousy camera
- poor playback quality
- high SAR value
- small screen
- 5mp camera which acts like a 3mp
- poor image quality especially indoor
- non-ergonomic buttons
- high SAR value (RF)
G900 (550USD initially, now much less)
- poor image quality especially indoor
- slow processor!!!!! (outdated, old)
- cheap look (some complained)
- high SAR value
Of course, we can argue but thesenegatives are oticed by many users as well.
Only thing anybody need to do is to go and check the unit out before purchase - and buy the one it was checked. It is very likely that SE has some quality insurance problem.
And we argue here about the same models but differently built phones.
I have checked more than one phones from each model - but obviously not all :)))
So, some good units can be out there. ;)
yes, I think you've raised some fair points too, but you must be more tactic in your responses.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2008I'll try (without actually owning the phone..but I intend to so I know a great deal about it)
... moreI respect your opinion and I think it is a fair personal view!
I have no big argument with that.
I had high hopes for G900. For me the negatives too much but for some may be not a concern.
I think you review helps, hopefully people realize that individual preference need to be checked before purchase.
tasha, 20 Jun 2008to G900 users,
pls. tell us more its strength and weaknesses and problems encountered... moreWhy don´t you go and check it out for yourself! instead of asking strangers!
I suggest to look for these:
Do not trust reviews, forums etc. It can give you some idea what to check but the decision is yours only!
For the G900 check:
- flash (in door pictures bad!)
- buttons / ergonomics
- look (some feel it looks cheap)
If you still like it - BUY IT!
There is no way I would recommended - especially if you want to keep it for long time.
Many much better phones coming out in the next few weekend months!!!!
I do not recommend Samsung and not the i900 since it is not out yet but on paper looks good and 1-2 more weeks it will be out.
Another concern can be:
SAR - since you want to have it for lifetime :)) short or long?
G900´s RF is pretty high!!!!!!
I'll try (without actually owning the phone..but I intend to so I know a great deal about it)
-Small (about the size of a Motorola SLVR adding 1mm here and there)
-Wi-Fi (connect to hotspots and surf away! or just check your emails...your choice :P)
-Touchscreen (not as needed with this type of phone but it helps make browsing way faster, and using the camera, besides being great to play with)
-Notes application (great for those to-do lists)
-Processor is slower than most smart-phones (this one's entitled to your opinion, disregard certain posts here(...)...smaller processor doesn't necessarily mean slower phone, but you'll have to try it in person to judge)
-Camera (it may say 5mp…it isn’t…basically if you want quality shots…take your digital, or resize the g900s 5mp shots into 3mp ones and they look good)
-Card Slot (its under the battery cover so not that easy to share files)
Hope it helps
to G900 users,
pls. tell us more its strength and weaknesses and problems encountered?
and is it true that this phone is slow and takes bad picture qualities?and is the sound really loud from this phone?how about the battery when you want to play a movie?
pls. i really wanna know cause im planning on buying this and i don't want to make a mistake..i want a lifetime phone..you know a phone that would last really long...pls..
Is the camera press button really hard to use? any user comments on this one please?
Also pls user comment on picture quality
please do not fight and buy this phone,trust me it is good .........cheers
In fact the rates established world wide nowadays are very low and ineffective: the real radiation from the cell phones that affects the DNA and cellular communication goes on extremely high and weak frequencies that are almost undetectable for the conventional radiation detectors.
Now in the market there are a couple of devices that protect the organism from the radiations, I personally use Neutraliser Gamma7.N-RT
It's small and you just stick it to the mobile, no need for external energy input. This technology was developed to protect the astronauts from the space radiation!
fact is mstl.. Sony Ericsson could bring out the best feature packed/spec'd phone out on market by a long shot and you would still not give it its just deserve...
so whats your point in being here?
and that bro is as youve said many times the truth.
Go take physics 101 again if you are older than 10.
2W/kg is not the standard !!!!!!
It is the limit!!!!
I guess it is a difficult thing for you understand the difference!
BTW, in the US the LIMIT is 1.6 W/kg!!!!!
Nokia websitwe works fine! 0.58 W/kg
(unlike SE!!!) :)))
Nokia N95 (Type RM-159)
CERTIFICATION INFORMATION (SAR)
THIS MOBILE DEVICE MEETS GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.
Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.
The exposure guidelines for mobile devices employ a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the ICNIRP guidelines is 2.0 watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over ten grams of tissue. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The actual SAR level of an operating device can be below the maximum value because the device is designed to use only the power required to reach the network. That amount changes depending on a number of factors such as how close you are to a network base station. The highest SAR value under the ICNIRP guidelines for use of the device at the ear is 0.58 W/kg.
Use of device accessories and enhancements may result in different SAR values. SAR values may vary depending on national reporting and testing requirements and the network band. Additional SAR information may be provided under product information at www.nokia.com.
mstL even wrote that N95 SAR is 0.6 which is a total lie!
0.6 or 0.62 is the SAR value under ICNIRP guideline for use of device at the ear
nokia website can't even page down the documents where the SAR is indicated. LOL!
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2008Those max. sar levels don't mean much. A phone with low sar level can produce more radioactive... moreI did not worry so far.
Somebody else brought the issue up.
But, I have heard it is a real danger.
(see some Scandinavian studies)
