hi nokia n-91,n91-1,n91-5 user. three edition of n91,great,there is no difference between n91 and n91-5,everything is same,but there is a so much difference in n-91-5. r u observing that first two edition has much slower and they have a software problem instead of that n91-5 is much better than of those,becauze it doesent support wifi-wlan,thats why it is more faster than first two and having a miner problem with sofrware. i think nokia has decided to go with n91-5 edition,becauze they doesent got a good reply from those edition. nokia u have to improve ue self by day by day,thanks

Im posting this using my n91 using the browser over wlan in a pub:) the video problem may be due to videos that are sampled too high and are choking the real player. Check the faq link i posted a while back. As for the record time- 1 hour is the limit in software it seems. Then you need to start another video recording file if you want longer than that. I have taken a 50 min video no problem and plenty of battery left. Pappy

hi i just wanna know if how many mins u could record a video in this n91 ?thanks!!!

  • J

What is the max. video play time?
I have transferred mp4 movies to my n91, but it only plays for a little over 14 mins.
Actually, the problem is not from the phone itself, but from the installed Nokia software.

Anyone else have this problem?

Any suggestions? Thanks,...

Othe then that, this is an awesome phone.

Latest Firmware should be available at your Nokia service centres - example for UK use this link (I used this),,94212,00.html

You know I did not have alot of problems with 1.00.28 however some people who installed some files (which ofcourse you are SUPPOSED to be able to do with an open O/S like Symbian) had some issues like 'freezing" etc.

I suggest people back up their HardDrives, reformat them, restore factory settings (or they can do it) - start claen and get the latest software 1.10.30 (the guy told me about a 1.11 for france - I assured him I am NOT French).

So far no crashes!

I bought this phone 2 weeks ago, and ever since I've experienced problems. Problems such as while i am trying to make a call suddenly the phone just freezes and then i have to turn it on an off again. I have to do like this atleast twice a day. It may look nice but I really think there are other phones out there better than this one.

N91-5 and N91-1, N91

There are three models.

N91-1: WCDMA and WLAN
N91-5: GSM no WLAN
N91: GSM no WLAN

Talk of N91-1 being unstable, stopped production is BS. I have the n91-1 (with the new firmware I just got upgraded 1.10.30 :)
its WLAN and 3G

N91-5 Has no WLAN and no GSM. Its because its CHEAPER. No WLAN or WCDMA chaips,less royalties etc. Its for people who do not care about WLAN and WCDMA.

N91. This one is a bit odd it is in China only. It may be that 3G and WLAN are not allowed in China in hand held devices yet - and its cheaper

So there ya go. Pick the one that suits yoru budget (if its avail where you live, thee are no GSM versions in the UK)


PS: About FM radio - yes it directly to the device as long as you have heaphones attached (antenna)

Battery Life

Hi I can only say what my own experience has been. (all starting with "battery full" batteries)

Music playback 9-101/2 Hrs it Depends on how often you navigate in th eMusic player (turn backlight on). Cant have Bluetooth or WLAn on, volme at about 50-60% (shich is loud enough thrus me:)

Video Playback: I watched aboyt 4 hours (two full length movies - see the FAQ link aI gave before on how tp rip these - of course whether its legal or not is not up to me :))

WLAN surfing: 5 Hrs opening web pages,, some streaming of sports etc

Talk, Stby: Id say aboyt 3-4Hrs and stby 4+ days.

Note however these are one thing at a time. Its when you start mixing things that you will end up recharging every 2 days or so. Its really a computer, IPOD and phone all rolled into one so "normal use" for an N91, N80, SE900 is "abnormal use" for a phone. I dont see it as an issue

Note: I have seen a situation where the WCDMA network is not optmised and the device seems to keep trying to say "wcdma are you there?" especially when I use my GSM SIM. I say get a newer SIM or set the devices to GSM only if you do not want the 3G.
