Excerpt: Nokia's Nseries lineup is well known for its high-end devices, but also for its expensive prices. Regardless, the company still has its fans, who took it right on top in the handset sales charts.
Pros: The strong points of the smartphone are surely the HSDPA connectivity and excellent screen that offers a smooth multimedia experience. I will also mention here the 3.2 Megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, good GSM signal reception, FM transmitter, 3.5mm standard audio jack, as well as the 2GB microSD memory ...
Cons: The hard-to-use keypad and slow operating system don’t go too well with the Nseries logo. The resemblance with the N81 device hasn't done any good to N78; on the contrary. Perhaps a much better solution for those looking for a cheap Nseries device remains the N82 candybar smartphone.
Review: Nokia N78 Review Part 3 - Software and Conclusions
All About Symbian
23 July 2009
Summary: In the last part of our N78 review we cover N-Gage, Web, GPS applications and general software. There's also a brief look at some of the additions and improvement from S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2. See also Part 1 (hardware, design and connectivity) and Part 2 (multimedia software) .
Excerpt: Truly, the appearance of the N-series handset has never been considered attractive. It is rather associated with the aerodynamic weight of the formula 1 fireballs, which is kind of scary, but obviously achieves the maximum results.
Summary: The cell phone offers excellent features for your messaging. Basically the cell phone supports all the SMS including a huge range of MMS options. You will find emailing through the cell phone very easy as it would also ask you if you need to set up Gmail for your IMAP.
Summary: The N78 isn't a bad phone by any means but it's not as easy to use as we'd hoped for. While the range of features makes it exciting, the occasionally fiddly navigation key and 3.2-megapixel camera had us yearning for something a little more refined
Pros: HSDPA; GPS; Wi-Fi; 3.5mm headphone jack.
Cons: Navigation key isn't as easy to use as we expected; camera could be better.
Summary: Right after the introduction of its various new services on its Nokia platform, ranging from the most recent Nokia Music Store to the finalization of its Nokia Maps 2.0 and N-Gage, the time is right for Nokia to present the first of its many devices that were showcased earlier on during its annual...
Conclusion: Backlit keys “disappear” when not in use… But beware of the close proximity of keys… fat fingers will need to adapt. The major add-on it has over other devices is the FM transmitter. Your own radio station! The design is awesome & it suits perfectly to normal users.
