Verdict

An excellent piece of hardware—loads of features, stunning looks, and an amazing screen—in short performance to match the looks. It’s pricey at Rs 40,249 we’d suggest waiting for a price cut, but keep in mind, at this price point, there’s nothing close to matching the N95!

Nokia N95 detailed review



Convergence Has A New Name


All it takes is a look to conclude this is a flagship product, a high-end multimedia cell phone, with a hell of a lot of features crammed into one tiny shell. And what a shell that is—the colour combinations are classy (we received a silver-dull metallic green), as is the matte finish. Quality of plastic is top-notch.

We were surprised at the compactness of the thing, especially when you consider the functionality: the 5MP camera, and the absolutely gorgeous 2.6-inch, 24-bit screen (nearly all phones still use 18-bit screens).

The number keypad is well laid out—an achievement for a slider phone—but the hard touch keys combined with the slightly raised surface makes finger-pad touch-typing a pain. Thankfully the keys are suitably laid out for nail-touch typing.

The double slider is a first—slide down and your number pad is accessible, slide up and four (blue backlit) media player keys pop into view. Another first—a 3.5 mm jack inbuilt on a Nokia phone! While grooving to MP3s, all calls are automatically diverted to the loudspeaker.

The music player’s very functional. Sound quality is decent on the supplied earplugs, but the N95 really comes into its own on a set of good plugs—this phone is an MP3 killer!

The 5MP camera is another first—great image quality and a good flash unit. However, like with all phone cameras, the zoom is useless. A boon is the lens protector.

2 GB of MicroSD comes bundled; its hot-swap. There’s a fully-functional GPS application inbuilt. This works well in conjunction with a GPRS connection. Wi-Fi (g protocol) is inbuilt, as is the mandatory Bluetooth (version 2.0, now with A2DP), and the Jurassic IR. The N95 also incorporates FM radio.

One gripe is the battery—950 mAh just isn’t going to be enough for such a feature-rich phone.

An excellent piece of hardware—loads of features, stunning looks, and an amazing screen—in short performance to match the looks. It’s pricey at Rs 40,249 we’d suggest waiting for a price cut, but keep in mind, at this price point, there’s nothing close to matching the N95!
