Nokia N95 review: Nokia’s crown jewel

01 May 2007
This is the our detailed test of Nokia N95, the best equipped phone on today’s mobile market. Nokia N95 is among first mobiles to have a built-in camera with a 5 megapixel resolution. Among its lures are also an integrated GPS module, HSDPA support, two-way sliding construction, and a very handy 3.5 mm jack connector for earphones.

For VOIP, i used Fring for the N95 last night via a wifi connection to another skype user. It works great!!

Also, the review is incorrect when it states the GPS unit doesnt work with 3rd party apps. It actually does work with 2 apps - Navfone Pro and Wayfinder 7! Tomtom will release a patch shortly to use it. I'm not sure about the other GPS apps for S60 tho.

        Anyone use this phone for VoIP yet? I need a world phone and wifi is an absolute must as is the ability to use VoIP. I know skype doesn't put out software for anything but windows, but has anyone used wifi on this with any other software to make VoIP calls? Thanks.

          very good phone. but without long lasting battery life all of the features and functions are useless. come on Nokia...we need a phone with similar function of N95 but the battery life should at least last for 2 to 3 days.

              When i first heard of the price of the N95 sim free of £500 i could not believe a company like Nokia would produce a phone to expensive i tried an early upgrade but failed then went on Ebay an won one an its just amazed me what a superb phone it is,it looks as though its going to be heavy but its so light an a lovely size ,Nokias done a cock- up with the battery but i hope soon there will be some software to improve the battery life an its a top phone by Nokia

                The N95 is an amazing phone an its features are top class But like the review always says the Battery life is a truely great cock-up by Nokia an hope theres some software soon to try to improve the battery life,people think its heavy when you first see the N95 but its really light an just right for putting in your trouser or jeans pocket,just seen a pink on on you tube an ope the will be some changeable fascias soon on ebay as i changed my N73 to Black an would like the N95 in Black as well

                      does it worth upgrading from my n73 (or generally speaking from n93,n80 etc...)? doesn''s a tad faster thanks to the amr11 processor,has a bit bigger screen with 16 million colours (i can live without),a 5 mp camera (i can do fine with 3 mp cause i also have a 6 mp nikon slr -proffesional camera if you don't know what slr is- if i need super quality photos),it also can't edit word docs without a third party application (or as said before without additional payment for upgrading the standard app),it's heavy,expensive,and i think will be full of bugs as any smartphone shortly after being relised,until a firmware update (or more).i suggest waiting for the 5 mp camera phone from se.that will be cheaper,faster,probably better at music,lighter etc...

                        Truly a great phone! The best probably for at least two years or until Nokia will release its successor. It will earn Nokia great profits and we will probably see some of its futures implemented in future midrange phones.

                        I used to praise SE for its great phones like W800, W900 and K800, with their great futures for money. But this time Nokia is the clear winner.

                                excellent review with N95, it manages to describe in clear details the cons and pros of this phone. but i smell something again, they always mention Sony Ericsson on their review. does it mean that the competition between those two rises to the maximum even reviewers are now aware. anyway a great review performance.

                                  If you have money to afford it and battery is not a problem, go for it!
