Review: Nokia N95

N95.jpg

I have tried this phone for a little while now since there has been a lot of hype regarding the its capabilities.

Pros:

  • Great bright and detailed screen
  • 5.0 megapixel camera but the pictures are slightly compressed, and great video recording
  • 160 MB built in memory (expandable through microSD)
  • Fantastic web browser and media player
  • Satellite Navigation works great even in Kuwait
  • Messaging is relatively easy with good keyboard access, and other side of the keyboard is good for the media playback
  • Simple to use even with the large of features
  • Battery is decent I get about a day and half of normal use out of it
  • Works with GSM/3G/HDPA, UPnP Wi-Fi

Cons:

  • A bit expensive (210KD)
  • The menu is great but sometimes a bit sluggish
  • A bit on the heavy side, but the is cost of such a large screen
  • With time I’m assuming its going to be more sluggish

    get the nokia phone updater and upgrade the frameware
    it will be much faster + Battery life will be much better now its up to ver 11+ just press on ur phone *#0000# if u have ver 10+ upgrade it :)

  2. I have heard alot of complains that the phone needs alot of upgrades, it hangs alot; is that true??

  3. i want to buy everything u post about!

    i have a huge wishlist compromised mainly about stuff i see here..

    don’t ya think nokia is out?? im on my 3rd non-nokia phone and beyond happy.. o 7asafa u bought this.. shuda waited for the i-phone

    how do u use the satellite navigation? i tried it and couldnt get a hold of it

  5. I gave up on Nokia long time ago… I am now more of a sony-ericsson kinda gal :-P

  6. the nokia N series are very complicated .. i dont know ..
    i just dont like them, not user friendly if u ask me .. the menu and all.
    and they break very very easily!

  7. we took this phone with us to italy, it was amazing, the gps, the camera, the iwireless capabilities. there was something icouldnt understand in it related to reading the bar code.. but all in all, worth the money.

  8. I’m the kind of person that would go for the fashion look of the phone more than for it’s features, because every day and another they make a better phone, and once they do you feel like the one that you already bought is no longer useable, the you must update. But the fashion looking phones don’t get updated that often, and you would hardly find new ones to replace them.

    About death note, i have till episode 35, the horrible thing is that only two episodes are left to anime to be finished, and they go and ask the subbers to stop subbing, they’re desprate, me and some subbers are trying to find a way to release it without any legal issues, but no solution yet. If you can’t get death note from ep 1-35 then i can send them to you, maybe even send you the last episodes #36 and 37 two weeks later if we find a way to do them.

    And hey i found ultraman, some nice episodes, with real actors and nice fights, anime like.

    Upgrade it…I had this phone since it first came out, truly amazing and worth it.

  11. W880i.. thats my phone.. in the beginning I did not like the keys on it.. now I am so used to it :-)

  12. It looks kind of appealing but with the IPhone coming out, you shouldn’t need another PDA type phone.

  13. lfc-q8: its upgraded, the phone belongs to my friend and he already upgraded it!

    Amu: if you upgrade it works perfectly! It didn’t hang when I was using it for a little while!

    Beyond Q8iya: looooool! Nokia isn’t out because they do make nice phones with very good features, the problem is the bugginess! I’m really happy with my SE W880i for sure!

    M: My friend downloaded the app and it worked perfectly in Kuwait! You could zoom in like google maps!

    Ansam: I still think they make great phones, but I’m happy with Sony Ericsson my self!

    no3ik: The N series has a lot of features in one phone!! That is the thing about them! Do you mean as being buggy or throw hard to wall break?? hehehehe

    vyyvva: yup, if you use the features its worth! If you don’t then its not!! simple as that! Its good you used all the features!

    The[M]Code: for me it isn’t about fashion its about funcitonality!!! If a phone does what I want from it then I stick to it!!

    I would really appreciate getting some of the episodes from you! I have up to episode 22 or 27! And I will wait for the last couple of episodes as well! Please keep me posted! Where did you find ultraman?

    Mo Hat: If you use the features then its worth it!

    Jacqui: I still have it!!!!!! This one was used for testing purposes only!!

    Ansam: same here, I thought it was a bit tough in the beginning but now I’m used to W880i!!

    N: This over the iPhone in my opinion but others will say differently!

  14. Laialy: Its for those gadget freaks!!

    Nora: loooooool!
