I'm currently using the nokia E51. . Its a brilliant phone, perfect size for its capabilities and excellent performance. . I want to switch to the N78 and judging from its looks, there is no difference with the N82, a phone I only used for a month and got rid of because of its bulkiness. Am i making the right decision.?? Help.

ive used it for 2 months.some disadvantages of n78, only a user can tell.

1- battery cover is gives crackling sounds.
2- battery cover is prone to scratches.
3- sometimes the right selection key and the cancel key(red key)functions alternatively i.e if u press right key to operate the loudspeaker during a call it will infact cancel the call.and sometimes wen u press the cancel key it will open the application u have selected for the right key eg go to.
4- sometimes zoom do not work while using camera.
5- it cannot be hacked for n-gage (v 12.07).
6- the color of navi wheel peels off.
7- there is no shortcut for flash plays flv format but each time ull have to go to file manager and then open it from there.opening it from real player wont play it.

important:- there is no issue of numeric keys as it is said here in gsmarena n78's review that it is not user friendly and not easy to use for messaging.
believe me it is not the can write msgs in a very good speed.there is nothing wrong with the numeric keys.
it is the most cheapest n-series mobile phone with wi-fi here in pakistan.
in pakistan it is a flop mobile phone in terms of resale.its price has fallen from rs 33ooo to rs 21000 in just 2 months.n series mobile phones with good resale in pakistan are n70, n72, n73,n95,n95 8gb,n81,n82 and n79 to some extent.

overall phone is very good in this price.if u want wi-fi and n-series application go for it.but if want to resale it then do not buy will give u massive loss.

one big drawback of n95 and n95 8gb.

they cant play wmv format. while n78 can play. i think all n-series phones with navi wheel can play this format but iam not sure.

  • Ackom

Does anybody know how I can set the n78 so that when it is in power saver time-out mode (screen goes dark after few seconds of inactivity), the backlit will still remain on for few more seconds to show the Now playing screen (shows date and time)? or it cannot do this?

Note: I'm using firmware 20.149.
