Hi,
I am using a Nokia N85 and i must say that truly its a classy phone. The only problem i found is that when u select more than 20 recepients for a single text message the message format automatically changes to a multimedia message. Has anyone faced the same problem? If yes, how do u rectify it.

Initially, even I was not very happy with camera of n85. n82 seemed better. But then, I think the auto fuction of the n85 is not good at all. Try manually adjusting the settings and then take a click (for example landscape, or close up). This way I foung the n85 takes better pics than n82. The colors are natural in n85. n82 has a white tint to it.

Is the sound quality of nokia n85 comparable with that of the n91 or n81? Does it have that same dedicated sound chip?

no this one does not support 3g AT&T. an american version could be possibly out soon. I read that a 3g USA has been approved by FCC.

Wanted to buy it since a long time. Saw it yesterday and changed my mind, because it looks dull like a cheap 100$ phone. So thought of 5800 but looks like a toy, and bad camera. Probably the coming 8mp Nserie touch screen will be nice but very expensive and heavy...

That is why now my mind is on a silver N79, flashy looks, good price and top camera !

  • iolo003

im quite convince now to buy this phone when it comes out here in the Philippines

ive read a very good reviews of it in mobile websites.. il pass on the 5800 and just wait for the Nokia flagship touchscreen

Nokia should really improve on the materials used to make their N series line-up. How about using metal like stainless steal or aluminum?

They should really try to make a hybrid of an N series phone's features and the build-quality of the 8600 Luna, 8800 Arte etc. It would be a hit!

Hi I was wondering is the 3G on this phone compatible with US 3G carrier such as AT&T. And also does the N85 come with any sort of webbrowser? If so does it display the webpage in full or a compressed version?

  • Dmitry

The features of this phone are great.
The build-quality is rather poor and plastiky.

I purchased my Nokia N85 last night and this is a short review what I felt about this phone.

What I liked...
1. Design and make of the phone.
2. The dual speakers are really loud.
3. The lock key at the right side of the phone is very useful.
4. The dual slider is firm.
5. Charges through USB.
6. The display of the phone is awesome.

What could have been better...
1. The camera is poor.
2. Front panel is a finger-print magnet.
3. It is a bit hard to press the calling keys (Green/Red).
5. The light keys on the front panel i.e. menu, delete, and the two selection keys make noises when pressed.

Overall I liked the phone, my rating 8.5/10
