Is Nokia N95 with integrated GPS and a 5 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss lens a good solid phone?
From UK mobile comparison site www.top-mobile-deals.com website, I found the latest new nokia phone deal. According to the description on the site, this handset is fantastic. It has an innovative 2-way slide mechanism, integrated GPS and a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens. A numeric keypad slides out from one end of the N95 while dedicated media keys slide out from the opposite direction, converting the display into full screen landscape mode. With built-in GPS, the N95's Maps application includes maps for more than 100 countries, enabling users to explore the world, find specific routes or locate services such as restaurants and hotels and covering more than 15 million points of interest. The built-in 5 megapixel camera is capable of taking print quality photos and recording DVD-like quality video clips. The N95 also has TV out enabling users to easily view their photos and videos on a TV screen.
This phone has everything, including one major flaw. It breaks down a lot because it can't handle all the technology built into such a small gadget.
This is the opinion of many who had the phone then returned it because of that. Even when I called my mobile phone company to get an upgrade, they even said they had many returned N95s.
