I’m after spending my first day with the n95.
I’ve come across 2 problems;
- the battery life (although not as bad as i feared)
- phone doesn’t charge via USB
I spent LITERALLY 4 hours messing with the phone – taking pictures/video, listening to music, running wi-fi, bluetooth, gps at the same time, transferring files left right and centre between PC and the n95. The battery was down to 1 bar at this stage
My initiall reaction was ‘what the feck?! sure i’ve only been on it 2 minutes!’, but then i looked at the time and i actually couldn’t believe it. So despite many people slamming the battery life, it’s actually ok. (i spent literally 4 hours on the phone using all the features, at max brightness, with bluetooth and wi-fi enabled). The phone will easily last a day with normal useage – one or two snaps, a few phone calls, texts, a video or two… it has more than enough juice for that.
So they’re the only flaws i’ve found so far. Moving on to the positive.. *takes a deep breath*
- TV out
- 5mp video/images + the little VGA cam on the front
- mp3 player
- loudspeaker (and it really is LOUD)
- Portrait/landscape navigation
- light sensor on camera
- VOIP calls
- Video Calls
- Barcode Reader
Enough said. That speaks for itself. This phone is the swiss army knife of phones. Anyone who’s seen it, loves it. At €650-€700, it’s still worth it. How much would you pay seperately for any sort of an ipod, digital camera and mobile phone? With the n95, you get the whole package. The n95 almost takes the piss with regards technology. People were just looking at each other today when i was showing them all the features..
Check out this 10 minute video review.. he can’t even get all the features mentioned 🙄
