The N95 has a 5 megapixel camera that takes great pictures and records decent quality movies, a 3.5mm headphone jack, integrated GPS, WiFi,Bluetooth, a micro SD slot, and multimedia computer capabilities. Basically, this thing is a mini computer, an MP3 player, a snapshot camera, and a video camera combined in one nifty, somewhat reliable package with the Nokia logo slabbed on the top. Sure, with Nokia you’re usually guaranteed a quality phone, but in this case, the N95 may have fallen short of our expectations.
First off, the phone is a bit too big to just slide into your pocket (for all you emo kids out there wearing your tight pants you found in the girl’s section at Hot Topic, avoid this phone as you may cause severe injury to yourself trying to get it out of your pocket.) If you actually manage to keep the phone in your pocket, the sliding mechanism takes its path and now you’ve got the keypads showing.
Now, some of you may know what I’m talking about when I say that most Nokia’s have a weight and design that feels just right in your palm. This phone, however, just feels cheap. Not that big of a deal, but for the Nokia fans out there, you know where I’m coming from.
One last problem that I have with the phone is that it has so many features, but before you can get to half of them the battery will probably die out. It’s understandable, considering its a computer in your hands – but having to recharge your phone every 24 hours is a bit of a hassle.
The phone is good, but not a good deal. For the price, it’s not worth the buy just yet. Maybe if the price is slashed considerably, I can overlook the flaws. I think I’ll just wait until Nokia perfects this one.
