Nokia N95 8GB: The All-In-One Wonder

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , | Posted on Wednesday, November 28, 2007

When Nokia first introduced the first version of the Nokia N95 late last year, they dubbed it a mini-computer as it was simply packed with applications that could not be found on any mobile phone in the market at that time. The price, unsurprisingly, was a little bit too expensive. Users also experienced some setbacks, primarily on the processing side of the phone.

Those problems, however, have been addressed, and now its successor, the N95 8GB, has been packed with twice the processing power. The increased RAM means you can actually feel the fluidity of the speed as you go through the many functions and applications of the phone.

The phone has also been given a slight make-over too; the N95 8GB boasts a beautiful 2.8" widescreen display, which can even be viewable under direct sunlight. The navigational button area has shrunk as a result, but it's still easy to use.

Nokia hasn't seemed to make any noticeable changes to the phone's 5 megapixel camera (with auto focus and Carl Zeiss optics), as it's still one of the best you'll find on a mobile phone. The obvious difference though, is the lens cover.. there isn't one. Therefore, you might have to be a little extra careful and be sure to have it in a case when you're carrying it in your pocket.

In terms of funtionality, the call quality of this phone is unsurprisingly flawless, as you would expect from a high-end Nokia model.

Here's an overview of the key features:
  • 2.8" 16M color QVGA display
  • 5 megapixel camera with auto focus and Carl Zeiss optics
  • Massive storage capacity and increased RAM
  • Wi-Fi with UPnP technology
  • Built-in GPS receiver and A-GPS functionality
  • Nokia maps application covering over 100 countries worldwide
  • Dual-slide design with dedicated multimedia keys
  • Standard 3.5mm audio jack
  • 3G (with HSDPA), EDGE and GPRS support
  • Symbian OS 9.2 Series 60 3rd edition Feature Pack 1 user interface
  • TV-out functionality
  • 1200 mAh battery
There's one downside in terms of accessories though.. Nokia N95 owners will unfortunately realise that the 8GB version doesn't come with a leather case as it did with the previous model. Nonetheless, we think the features on this phone well makes up for it, making it an upgrade well worth getting.

Overall, we think the Nokia N95 8GB is one of the best feature packed phones in the market at the moment. With its N-Gage capabilities, high-quality camera and media playing controls, the Nokia N95 8GB will surely be the ultimate device to have in your hands today.
