Excerpt: I just bought N79 yesterday and it seems to have some problem with the video recording at low light. The camera fluctuates in yellow and white color constantly while recording. While recording the color would suddenly change to dark yellow and the a moment after back to white tone, that keeps happening constantly. I even updates the firmware from 11.043 to 32.001 but the problem still remains... could it be a faulty set kindly suggest if someone had a similar problem.
Excerpt: Hi all, N79 is really value for money as it offers load of functions. but its performance is avg. Ill not recommend this phone to any one.
Pros: FM transmitter, 5MP cam./geo tagg, clear display, connectivity wi-fi/3.5G, user friendly, X-press covers with changing themes
Cons: pic zoom too slow(may be due to low ram), camera quality is avg., sim contacts cnt be copied, video editor is missing,, Voice is not loud, vibration not so good., obvious lacking USB charging and OLED screen., Location of memo card., No live wire included.
Excerpt: I bought this phone 3 months ago and are generally very happy with it but for the keypad. In fact, my phone was stolen last week and if it wasn't for the keypad I will have bought it again.. now I'm considering other alternatives (none found yet :( ). The camara is pretty decent (for a camera phone) as is the video function. The UI could be a little faster in some places but is generally very responsive. Sound very good too.
Pros: Very feature complete (GPS, Wifi, VGA video, 5Mp camara, FM RDS, FM transmitter,...), Dual LED flash, very balanced weight, Size
Cons: Keypad (improves with a silicon case), Slippery (can be solved with a silicon case), No easy to turn on flashlight function available, No 3D HW acceleration
An affordable smartphone that does a lot amid some minor shortcomings

Summary: I bought my Nokia n79 2 months ago, as it fit the bill (and most importantly: my wallet) for a do-it-all 5 megapixel candybar cameraphone after getting tired of my previous love-of-my-life: the bricky smudge magnet that is Sony Ericsson K850i. I must say that overall, I'm quite impressed with this nifty little gadget. Physically, it fits just snuggly into my palm, and it is neither bulky nor heavy.
Summary: Ok phone, with a good camera, at a price. Problems so far (five weeks), the click wheel only works when it wants to - so that's been turned off now, the date changes for no reason at all (suddenly it is later in 2009 - time travel!!), and the alarm doesn't sound again if you press Snooze when the phone is turned off. The OS is not THAT slow, but tends to fade in and out really slowly with the images menu...
