Good: Everything!!!!!!! :)
Bad: a plastic body which cud get losse or suffer wear n tear :(
Comment: Great phone omiting d bad points iv considered about it
Good: Fantastic user interfcae
Bad: fingerprint magnet, coz of the glossy finish to the design
Comment: I loved using this phone, it's like a updated version of the Nokia N95 but with more features & great for e-mail too. I recommend this phone.
Good: more features than the N95, it's like an utpto date version with extras
Bad: software issues like music player constantly losing music
Comment: I love the N95 but was let down by the battery life. This phone will last 2.5 days on average compared to the less than 8 hours I got from the N95. The extra features like the auto rotating screen and audio themes are a nice touch but the navi wheel I don't see the point. It's more a gimmick than a practical gadget, especailly if you have giant fingers like mine.
The camera is good quality but suffers if you are in poor light and I found that image quality suffered when ever I used any zoom. It's also very difficult to keep the lense free from dust, even with a sliding cover on it.
All is not perfect with the phone.. 2 issues have appeared with mine
1- a software issue with photo editing prevents me from adding effects
2- The music player keeps losing my music and won't find it unless I put it all back on with the pc
I find keeping the phone grease free is impossible.
Apart from the problems which I'm getting sorted through Orange, hopefully, it is a great phone.
Good: OLED screen
Bad: Software/hardware failure, poor camera qulaity
Comment: This is the worst phone I owned ever!
It keeps on restarting when charging on main or USB connection. Also it drops call in middle of call. Poor call quiality. Poor camera quality compare to my old N73.
I sent it for repair.
Good: nice looking phone
Bad: not innovative
Good: Everything is very polished
Bad: It doesn't boil my eggs
Comment: So this is basically the N95 (as the editors review points out) refined and slimmed down. The hardware is tidier, hardier and sleeker. The software has been tweaked and speeded up and new features added. So it's Nokias' best phone.
So if the N95 gets 8.8 from the editor, why does this only get an 8? 9 from me!
