Nokia N95 8GB review

I t has been quite some time since the Nokia N95 was put on the market. During the Mobile World Congress 2008 the successor was already announced: the Nokia N96. In the meantime Nokia have put an 8GB version of the Nokia N95 on the market. After its appearance it turned out that the N95 had some minus points. The battery ran out too quickly, the RAM memory was full in no-time and the GPS navigation wasn't always too precise. The Nokia N95 8GB, also known as the Nokia N95-2 is supposed to have overcome all these issues. The monitor has been enhanced from 2.6-inch to 2.8-inch, RAM memory has been enhanced from 64MB to 128MB and a 1200mAh battery has to enable longer talk-times and standby times. The cover of the lens had to disappear though. There is no memory card slot available on the Nokia N95 8GB and with the availability of an 8GB memory you won't need an extra card anyway.

Nokia N95-2 Slider phone design

The design of the Nokia N95 8GB hasn't been altered that much compared to the N95. The Nokia N95-2 is available in an elegant black colour. Compared to the silver-coloured Nokia N95, the N95-2 feels a lot more solid. The lens cover has disappeared. Nokia had better kept it because chances you get your fingers on the lens when reaching for the phone to make a call, are huge. Thankfully the double slider system remained the same so operating the multimedia functions is carried out separately from operating the phone.

Nokia N95 8GB Color monitor

The monitor of the Nokia N95 8GB is a sixteen million color monitor with a maximum resolution of 240x320 pixels. The monitor is very clear thanks to its enlarged size of 2.8-inch. Watching a movie on the Nokia N95 8GB is a true joy. Even at fast action moments the movie is not jerky nor does it freeze. Reproduction of captured pictures is excellent; everything is clearly recognizable even when high contrast differences occur. The color reproduction is true to nature.
