Excerpt: When we first handled the N82 in March, it was the best phonecam on the market. Guess what? It still is. With exceptional optics, xenon flash and a competent image-editing suite, it would be a decent stand-alone 5-megapixel camera.
Pros: 3.5-mm headphone jack. Side-mounted hard buttons enable rapid phone/camera switching. Integrated Flickr/Vox photo sharing. Quality 640 x 480-pixel video (at 30 fps!). Sliding lens cover protects the goods.
Cons: TXenon flash can yield spotted snaps. No USB charging. Tiny keypad buttons. Accelerometer is a bit sensitive.
Summary: We weren't blown away by the silver N82's looks, but the black paint job brings the phone together in a much more attractive way. Combine this makeover with the N82's 5-megapixel camera, GPS, HSDPA and Wi-Fi, and you've got one of the hottest phones to come out of Finland
Pros: The black casing makes this N82 look much better than its silver sibling; 5-megapixel camera with xenon flash; GPS.
Summary: The Nokia N82 isn't for everyone. Not only does it cost a bundle, but it doesn't yet offer 3G data support in the U.S. Nevertheless, we highly recommend this premium camera phone for its stellar picture quality, GPS capability, fast surfing over Wi-Fi, and excellent media playback.
Summary: T he Nokia N82 is a well thought-out camera phone. A true multimedia device despite the fact it drops a stitch here and there. The camera settings could have been more enhanced. For example, the possibility of adjusting the compression is lacking.
