the n95(1/2/3/4), n82 heck ALL n-series ph0nes GPS's is a fuzzin' GIMMICK!!!
think ab0ut it. sure, the n95 D0ES have GPS(l0l) but:
1.) it takes F0REVER t0 get a "l0ck" 0n a "c0ld" start.
2.) gps chip is l0cated UNDERNEATH the keypad s0 u'd HAVE t0 slide the ph0ne 0pen(as if ur makin a call - again, L0L!) EVERYTIME u wanna use it. pr0lly WHY it takes the ph0ne F0REVER t0 get a fix.
3.) V0ICE GUIDANCE IS N0T FREE!!! HELL N0!!!
what is Y0UR MAIN PURP0SE in getting gps??? ESPECIALLY when driving a car??? t0 l00k at that teeny-weeny tiny screen t0 kn0w ur l0cati0n??? LMA0!
take a l00k at gps devices GARMIN & T0MT0M NAV. they pr0vide v0ice guidance 0UT 0F THE B0X with N0 EXTRA FEES(heck, even a cheapie $100 gps system can d0 the same)!!! sure the n95/n82 can d0 v0ice guidance but 0nly f00lz 0r 0ld fartz'ses like little ms. A(a)LLANis'ses are actually DUMB en0ugh t0 pay EXTRA f0r that little service EVERY M0NTH!!! L0L!
s0 i REALLY d0n't get dem f00lz "braggin'" ab0ut an INFERI0R "gps" device.
to the pers0n who askd if this ph0ne supp0rt gps. For what ive been reading b0ut this ph0ne. It supp0rt gps using an external m0dule that will c0st u alm0st half the prize of this ph0ne. Its n0t a practical for u. Go for a ph0ne that has a built in gps. For example n95 8gb. It has gps and much much m0re..
do u mean 2 say dat d d-pad is also black and d line on d side too?
if so,i dun think it wud look good.
even i got a 2gb card wit ma fone!
SE 4 lyf!
@ Batista The Animal
n95 definitely takes better pics than k850 (and videos), but battery life is shockingly poor and no Xenon flash. K850 is VERY unreliable IMO as I've been through 3 in less than 5 months - and I look after my phones very well.
Sorry, but I have to agree on the n95 battery life, my gf has one and it is absolutely shocking. Back to the K850i, worst phone I have ever owned. Bought it last October and I am now on my THIRD handset, O2 have finally agreed to exchange for another model, admitting that the phone has known faults. I was previously a big fan of SE phones (mainly coz of the great battery life), but this experience has def put me off. Now looking for a suitable contender to replace my K850i - and it certainly won't be an n95!
IN fact there has been a release of N95 with very short battery life... I used it for a couple of months and then thrown it away.. Now I'm back to my old P990i and willing to get a K850..
my Network offer K850i in full BLACK with a 2GB Memory card !!!!!
even better offer bro.
Hi I'm planning to buy a 5.0MP camera phone so K850i took my attention. But it has no symbian support so how do you manage to fulfill this insufficiency? As far as I'm concerned Symbian OS is essential for applications & games. I cant also use the symbian opera in it. So how efficient the phone browser is? Can I download files of any extension like the symbian opera does? Is Carl Zeiss Optic lens like that of the Nokia N82 or N95 is better than that of the K850i? Please let me know. Thanks
yeah,gues m lucky.
i jus got it 4m d white market (wit bill.2gb card n 1 yr warranty).
grey market k850is come witout bill, no warranty n only wit 512mb card!!!
anyway, if u do get dis fone wit ur network, plz DON'T get d blue one.
d silver sides look yucky!
green one looks classy!
SE 4 LYF!
you must be Lucky then.
anyway my cousin is getting a Samsung G600 now.
he didnt like the K850i that much.
i might be getting K850i though. depends what my Network offer
i just got the SE K850i.
i really like the phone,
it has all the functionality
that i required. however, 2 days
ago the phone stopped saving the
photo's it took, everything runs
as per normal when taking a photo
but the photo doesnt get saved.
i have already tried to do a master
reset in attempt to rectify this
problem assuming it might have been
a settings issue, but no luck.
anybody with suggestions?
has anybody else had this predicament?
i haven't got any probs wit anythng at till now(touchwood)!
jus need 2 upgrade ma firmware, but, dat will happen wen d f/w is available 4 Australia.
and also, mine's not a contract fone.
i bought it outright.
SE 4 lyf!
he had problems with the 3 Touchscreen buttons they never worked, he couldnt upgrade the firmware becuase he got it on a contract with a company o2.

I had the K800i and upgraded to this one - glad i did as i'm really impressed with the phone, camera is really good (compared to K800i), liked the touchscreen buttons and
the motion sensor. Slightly difficult to text as the buttons are alot smaller than the K800i ones but you get used it. Didn't come with any games (only DEMOs), was a bit gutted as i heard there was one like a pinball/maze game which uses the phones motion sensor thingy - still no luck in finding this on the Net - any ideas !? Battery life is good aswell !
