Nokia N95 review

D uring the Photokina 2006 Nokia presented the N95. This caused a lot of commotion in the mobile phone camera world. Now the multimedia giant is also available for testing, and we have made the first test shots. Judging by its specifications, the Nokia N95 does not currently have an equivalent. The Nokia N95 is everything that the N-series stands for, which is a real multimedia telephone. It has all you could imagine, such as GPS, an MP3 player, a video player or WLAN, you name it. In the next Nokia N95 test you can read if these functions all perform well, if they have any use, and if the built-in 5 Megapixel camera really is as good as Nokia wants us to believe.

Nokia N95 multimedia cell phone

The innovative 2-way slide concept makes it easy to switch between different modes, going from reading maps to watching a video with a simple slide. A numeric keypad slides out from one end of the device while dedicated media keys slide out from the opposite direction, converting the display into full screen landscape mode. With powerful 3D graphics, the Nokia N95 has a stunning user interface that makes it intuitive to find the features and services you want.

 

Nokia N95 - 5 Megapixel camera

A much talked about feature of the Nokia N95's 5 Megapixel camera is the Carl Zeiss lens. The photo quality of our Nokia N95 test photos seems fine. And the newly released firmware has improved the quality and precision of the lighting as well as the speed. The results are the best that I have seen up to now from a mobile phone. The colors are clear and the photos have good contrast. You turn on the camera by sliding open the lens cap. Then you hold the phone just as you would a normal digital camera. The Nokia N95 is a bit slower to focus than a compact camera, but the shutter release is not as slow as it used to be. Focusing woks fine and it is quite accurate in combination with the AF light.


 

Nokia N95 - GPS system

The Nokia N95 has a built-in GPS antennae, which is very convenient if you do not want to carry a navigation system along as well. The reception is not always very good, but that is not because of the phone itself, but because the satellites for the Netherlands (where we have tested the N95 cell phone) are not exactly at optimum level yet. This is evident because even in a city such as Amsterdam, you cannot even determine a balanced GPS position very often. You only notice this while walking; as soon as you are moving faster you will not notice the inaccuracy. When you wish to use all the functions and possibilities offered, you will have to subscribe to the software. Nokia offers several options and installment possibilities. Other available features of this multimedia machine can be read in the following Nokia N95 cell phone review.
