With instant access to the Internet, sharing life experiences with the world by uploading pictures and videos directly to popular picture sharing and blogging sites is quick and easy.

- Poor quality for the price
I was excited about the N95 at first, but within minutes of charging it and trying to get my sim cad in I was absolutely disappointed. The battery cover is way flimsy...it broke almost immediately. The software probably needs to be updated out of the box as it was slow and clunky. Overall this phone had avery cheap flimsy feel. I returned the defective one I received. I believe that for $400 I shoud get a battery cover that does not break in 5 minutes....more info
- Almost 100% satisfied by the Nokia N95-3
If you're looking for a true alternative of the iPhone or a blackberry, this is it. It even tops it's competitiors in several aspects: 5 MP camera with flash, microSD card slot (supports microsSDHC, 8GB card works like a charm!), battery is easy accessible and much more. Movies look great, sound is fairly good for it's small speakers and the WLAN access is just awesome.
cons: The phone's software is slow compared to other mobile OS....more info
- Best phone ever.
Like others have posted. The iPhone are form factor and trend appeal...and teeny boppers. If you want a real device with function and sustenance, look no further than the N95. And this version (N95-3) is made with North America 3G to use with AT&T's 3G data plan. This may not be the best looking or smallest phone, but it's best phone ever....more info
- Bought a Lemon, got no service from Nokia
I researched the capabilities of smart phones in the market and those about to be launched and decided to buy this one over the 3G iPhone. Unfortunately my phone shuts off by itself every few days even with a full battery. I sent it to Nokia for repair and it died again 48 hrs after getting it back from them. I then found several forums on-line where people are having similar issues with N95s, and others where people complain about the hapless service from Nokia repair. That iPhone is looking really good right now....more info
- Ultimate Multimedia Phone
The Nokia N95-3 is definitely worth buying. There are so many features in this phone that will satisfy the most hard to please buyers. Despite the many features, I find it so easy to use. The 8 GB micro SD card that I installed worked flawlessly giving me enough memory for music, video and data. I am very satisfied with this purchase....more info
- Great Phone, much better then the iPhone....
So I used an iPhone for about 8 months and was pretty happy wikth it, but when I decided the try a new device, I was much happier after I found the Nokia N95. It has a better camera that takes amazing pictures, it has 3G, it has voicde guided navigation that works better then my Garmin Nuvi 650, it has a nice file system, MP3 player, A2DP, Speakers, Nice Layout, and its Unlocked. Its an all-around great device for people that don't want to carry around a camera, phone, pda, and nav system. The only things I would prefer this device had would be a touch screen and a better included word processing program....more info
- Great Phone
Great phone it is as advertised a n95-3 black. I have had the phone for about a month now and I love it! The camera is great and so is the video. the are tons of third party apps for this phone so you customize it with everything from motion sensing programs to a infared tv remote this phone has it all. The only things you might want to consider before buying this phone is battery life, the slide becomes loose after awhile and I'm not sure what causes this but after I updated the firmare (thru nokia) my phone stops and reboots itself without warning which is aggravating after spending $520...more info

- The perfect phone?
This phone packs everything you would ever need in a smart-phone and then some. You will be able to watch video,movies and listen to your favorite music with the built in media support. You can find your way with the built in GPS. Surf the web with the full HTML browsesr and stay up to date with your inbox on the go.
When initially looking into purchasing the N95 I was planning on replacing a blackberry that I have been carrying around for years. I have been a blackberry user for some time and thought I would never find a better solution. I was wrong. This device does everything my blackberry did and then some. Granted the push email is a plus and the N95 does not support push out of the box (Checks at intervals) but there are some third party applications that add this. The beauty of the S60 platform is that you have the freedom to do what you want with pretty much anything on the device.
The N95 seems thick at first but its actually very small and extremely easy to carry in your pocket. I have actually learned to like the fill of the thickness more because it fits my hands perfectly. I have been using the qwerty keyboard on my blackberry for some time and can type very well on it so I was skeptical about going back to a phone keypad. While I am not as fast as I was on a blackberry the prediction is very good on this device and allows you to easily type short emails and text messages with no trouble.
Nokia states that this device is a multimedia computer and I have to agree its very powerful once you learn how to use it. Will it replace my iPod? Possibly but its not quit as a good as a standalone audio device. The music player is very easy to use and with the media transfer plugin (available for mac) you can use iTunes to sync your music just like you would an iPod. I was able to sync my address-books, contacts and music and videos in no time with the software available for download on Nokia's USA website.
My favorite feature of the N95 is the fact that I can take pictures/video (5MP camera) and post them to the web (flickr, OVI) all from the device. Being a family man this is a wonderful thing to have because I have have a great moment in our life up on the web with comments in a matter of minutes without ever needing a computer. The camera is very impressive for a phone. It takes a while to get used to getting good pictures with it but with a little practice you can take great shots with ease. I can't wait to see what Nokia comes up with next. The N series devices are the best hands done....more info
- BE CAREFUL - many N95 have DEFECTIVE GPS chip
I have the N95-3 (RM-160), which is this version that is sold by Amazon for the North America market and I am having serious issues getting GPS lock. I opened the phone slider, point the phone upward to clear sky from 20th floor rooftop and I get GPS lock AFTER 20 minutes. I tried this on different location and the same thing.
I reset the phone, upgraded to the latest firmware, uses Assisted GPS and still the problem persist.
Google "N95 GPS lock" and you will see hundreds of people having the same problem. Many send it back to Nokia and got it work, some are not so lucky and Nokia just send them a refurbished phone that have the same problem. It seems that some phones have DEFECTIVE GPS chip.
Please be warned of these....more info
- AMAZING ORDER
Great phone!!!!, great dealer!!!!, seriously!!!!!, responsible!!!!!, I'm pleased with my N95 and I don't ruled out make them a new order!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!!!...more info
- Two features short of perfect
The choice was between this and the iphone. I'm glad i went with the N95. Great quality screen, sounds great, good volume. The menu system takes a couple days to get accustomed to but once you get into it the configurability is good.
GPS works fine for me. (Trinidad & Tobago W.Indies)
Battery life two full days from new.
I use 8Gig cards. My ipods packed away now.
movies run smoooothly.
Great pictures. A bit slow but bearable for me.
Fits comfortably in jeans pocket.
Lots of third party apps availabe.
The two cons that make the rating a 4 are :
-lack of touch screen. This phone surfs well, but navigation can be a bit slow when entering forms.
-A larger screen ( the ipod wins on this). because of the smaller screen you'll be scrolling around quite a bit when zoomed in to read pages or data files. This coupled with lack of touch screen makes use of the office package tedious.
Have'nt found a sliding case i like yet.
Does'nt charge from usb port. Have seen a usb adaptor that would fit the charging port will get one and try.
This phone has lots of usefull features,in a sophisticated style.
- Nokia N95 is a keeper !!!!!
I bought this last Dec as a gift for my wife. She is not into high tech phones but when she saw my gift, she was so happy. The camera itself is fine, quality with the calls and even using the bluetooth. I have added an 8gb micro sd, im assuming it will not work but it did work. Now it becomes a Nokia N95 8GB........more info
- Nice Phone, Pricey Phone, that keeps going down
I had to return this phone after 2 days, It would reboot itself and or just lockup. I read about this before. It did have the latest firmware. The price was $517 when I ordered, it dropped to $488 now. The nokia n95 8g was 639 and that day I returned Nokia has it for $579 for like a day. However, the drawback with the phone. I use a treo and a blackberry. The lack of a keyboard is hard to deal with. I really wanted to like the device it does allot. The camera features are nice, the 8g version seems to be the better way to go in terms of os since I think it has more operating memory. Nokia is releasing the N96 soon, then the Nokia Tube, hence the price drops. But it did work ok on att 3g, wifi worked, the lock ups and freezing was not acceptable for a phone that cost $500....more info
I upgraded from a Nokia N75 and there is no comparison. Battery life is much better, it's smoother to operate and have had zero complaints. The music player is excellent it's easy to download music to. Great Nokia product....more info
- Great phone; iffy email
I purchased this phone as it really seems to be a phone first (actual numeric key pad and good call quality), with a really good data feature set too. The phone is great! Call quality is good and it is nice to just be able to start hitting numbers and that is what you are getting. Everyone raves about the features on this phone and for good reason. There is far more here on the phone than I will ever use. Free GPS is a great perk of this phone. And if you use it frequently, it negates some of the cost as you save yourself the monthly fee from AT&T. The camera takes good pictures, but is far too slow to effectively replace your point and shooter.
Everyone complains about the battery life, and not without reason. If you are using 3G, it will not make it through the day, even with minimal usage. Running on Edge, and only using 3G when connecting to the internet allows you to make it through the day in most cases though.
My biggest complaint with the phone is that it does not maintain a connection with my mailboxes as consistently as I would expect. I use Mail for Exchange (a Nokia app) for my business account and use what came on the phone for two other accounts. Almost daily, at least one of my accounts will lose connection and I will have to restart the phone, sometime multiple times, and then go to the settings to reset the retrieval settings. I have not seen that this is a widespread problem, but it is very frustrating and not something I ever experienced with BlackBerry or HTC.
When all is said and done, this is still one of the best phones on the market today. If you have the money to spend and want a lot of features, you won't be disappointed. But if you are a serious email user I think I would look around a little bit. (Any tips on the email issues mentioned above would be welcomed.)...more info
- Excellent product for its kind.
I was well satisfied with everything about this cellphone. Its been my first real expensive personal gadget and overall its please me. It's worth to buy this expensive unit as it give you everything from cellphone, music player and tiny PC on the moved. Very impressive the way OS of this tiny PC to respond on any of your command. With the multiple availability to connect, its all you need for person on the go. It's not perfect but well satisfied you with all its capabilities. ...more info
