Hands-On the Most Fabulous Jewel In The Smartphones World

Image

As you may already know I was invited as a guest on the big Nokia lunch event in New York City a few months ago and I am proud to say that I was lucky enough to see the N95 and to be one of the first to get hands on the proto model which has been introduced to a closed group of bloggers and forumers one day before the official release.

Now, a few months later, I am proud, happy and honored to say that I've just get N95 and that I am lucky enough to leave my fingerprints on the this beauty again, before its official shipment and to be among the first in the world who will test it out.

So, what to say after a few minutes? Nothing besides that I am completely speechless, I just cannot find right words or sentences to describe how excited I am at the moment. Putting my impressions on paper under such co... ..

Very nice hands on...

I can't understand the battery in it though, as you said it does not make sense to put a pretty limited battery in such a feature packed phone. Can't imagine that this really is the best they can do...

Second, I must say the pictures I've seen so far disappoint me as well. Same 'over sharpening'/'too much compression' problem as N73 pics (perhaps even worse). I mean, less then 1 mb for a 5 megapixel picture is unbelievable.

Nevertheless I still love the device and it's going to be a serious option, it's so damn complete (and beautiful). Can't wait for the complete review :)

Just wow. Looks really great, and awsome pix you took there!

About the pixel density, it is less then in N93, N73, N80, N90 and all those, but it still is better then in the old 176x208 2" screens right?

And if you don't mind, could you send me the hi-res versions of these pix:

I'd love to have these ones as my wallpaper :P

As I said 950 mAh isn?t enough, we should have something like in E61, I know, overall phone size has some limitations but 950 mAh is simply insouciance for such a phone :?

I took just a few photos, just to test it out, will make some better and deeper camera test in upcoming days and than will say more about. For now I can say that cam soft is annoying slow, really slow, phone need more than 5 sec to process taken image and be ready for another shot :?

I quite agree with you, its still the best smart phone nowadays.. .

Congrats on your new phone, the wait is over :D I read the small preview, pretty interesting Nokia still ignores VGA, but that's just one complicated marketing move :roll:
And I appreciate that nokia continues to implement newer phones with the material they used on the sides just like on my N73, very nice feel to it 8)

ha, ha, 10x a lot bro, I?m so happy to hear that U found it useful, especially because I was pretty limited, time was short, I got it just a few hours ago ;)

Situation is a little bit worse than on N93 but it isn?t very noticeable, not at all, it?s the still good screen and much better than older S60 screens but it just doesn?t meet my needs and that?s all about, QVGA resolution doesn?t sounds so attractive nowadays :hm:

Franz wrote: And if you don't mind, could you send me the hi-res versions of these pix

Sure thing, hope that 6mpx from my lovely S3-IS is enough good for you ;)

But not before tomorrow morning from the office, I?m on EDGE at the moment, even worse, I have uploaded all these photos over the crappy EDGE connection, damn annoying job believe me :?

Well, what to say, nothing beside that I like to here that, it means that my work wasn?t useless :P

10X my friend, actually 10x 2 all of U, 10Q once again, for such a good comments, really appreciate it.

thx Nex, although I have to say that it isn?t my new phone, maybe will be but this beauty is hear just for trial testing period and that I have to send it back no matter how hard it will be :hm:

Nexus_ wrote: Nokia still ignores VGA, but that's just one complicated marketing move :roll:

Yep, that?s the main and only reason IMO, they have all conditions hot high definition screens but :hm:

Phone looks pretty strong there is no doubt, chrome parts with blue illumination looks awesome, but cover is painted and I?m really curious how it will looks like after few months, I truly hope it will not same as with 6680 :?

From the beginning? There's no data at all on MMC or maybe some error on MMC (corrupted MMC or have u tried safe mode)? 5 second is quite long IMO...

My connection really slow ATM :head: I can't see whole images...
