But he camera is brilliant and the OS is amazing. I LOVE Symbian!! :D I fully recommend this phone, however being a bit old, go for the N86 8MP of the N97/N97 Mini :)
Good: maps and camera
Bad: no tocuh screen
Comment: had this phone for 15 months.loaded an 8 gig card and the extra nokia maps option. as a phone it has a lovely sound and picks up conversations beautifully.
As a sat nav it has saved my bacon numerous times and the voice directions work great when I am travelling on my motor bike. The video function is functional for those boring tube or train moments,Music player is functional and great for playing in the background whilst you potter around your hotel room. The Camera is outstanding, the lifeblog software cool.
so in short you get a great phone, a sat nav, a music player, great camera, oh and you get the internet too....remind me again why you want a touch screen...
Good: Camera working and unique design
Bad: A small keypad
Comment: Pretty good
Good: Best in class camera, GPS, large screen, ergonomics and industrial looks
Bad: Nothing... yet
Comment: I bought this phone yesterday having researched the best camera phones on the market. I was torn between the N82, the SE K850i and the Samsung G800.
I read a thorough comparison review between the three online, a review containing comparative pictures etc., and the N82 was streets ahead of it’s competitors. In low light, the G800’s flash bathed the subject in a blue mask, the K850i’s flash seemed to struggle unless the subject was close to the camera. Though if they got too close, they were over-exposed. The N82 however excelled and managed to have a good balance of lighting throughout the picture and throughout the test.
I'd like to come to the defense of the phone over its looks. I personally love the metallic minimal, industrial feel. I'm personally bored of these highly polished black slab iPhone wannabees saturating the market. I feel with the N82, they've gone for content over style and in doing so have produced one of the greatest phones available right now.
Having owned an N95 for the last year and being frustrated with its slow response time, slider activating in-pocket and relatively poor camera, amongst other things, I’m happy to say that Nokia have ironed out ALL these foibles in the N82.
I couldn’t recommend higher a phone than this one.
Good: Browser, display, 3mm jack, video and picture taking ability, candy bar design
Bad: Thick design, navigation/selection keys.
Comment: Great phone which is a massive improvement on the original N95. It does not suffer from the same fault prone sluggish software, the GPS seems quicker to lock on, the battery massively improved, the candy bar design feels way stronger and doesn't creak or flex. The buttons that all the reviewers keep barking on about really aren't that bad..yes they are narrow, but that also means that they are spaced out quite well and protrude enough for you to gain great feedback...certainly a week in and even those with the thickest fingers get use to them (I did)..I didn't like the navi pad though..I find that you often tap the selection key or navigate in the wrong direction by mistake. Looks-wise I find it rather attractive and can't understand why most reviewers are dissing it's design..thick body asside..I think the phone looks quite nice..with the soon to be released black version set to win over even more hearts and minds.
If I could make a request I would ask them to shave off some of the thickness in the body of the phone, extend the display further out to the edges of the device, and allow charging off a USB connection. The buttons could be improved but a compromise has to be made and there just simply isn't enough space for both a large display and keys on a candybar design
