Summary: This one star goes to Nokia as a company, not to the phone because I did not have the chance to use it. It came unusable from factory!. Also, five stars to Amazon because they have a really great return policy and easy to follow procedures. I still cannot believe that a big company like Nokia does not have a quality test on its production line to avoid things like this from happening. The phone was delivered by Amazon but the seller was Nokia itself.
Summary: Do not even consider purchasing this phone. As a Nokia fan and owner of a N95-3 (a great device), everything about this phone looked & sounded great. It has all the same featues packed into a sleeker, more attractive body, with a higher end screen and equivalent battery life, for a lower price. Sounds perfect, in theory. But... spend some time reading comments around Amazon and other review sites, and you'll notice a common theme: horrible build quality.
Summary: Pros: N85 packs a lot of features in a small body - see other reviews. Some say it's flimsy - I disagree. I dropped it twice on the floor at home and once on asphalt in the street. It works as if nothing happened. Cons: People mention minor things. I'll talk about the most important. (1) When I was travelling outside the US, my N85 stopped functioning.
Summary: At first glance the Nokia N85 seems to have it all: GPS, good camera, 3G features, etc etc etc. After owning one of these for over 2 months now I believe it's safe to say it's one of the best disguised useless gadgets I've ever seen, and here's why: 1. After buying it, I spent countless hours searching, installing and configuring stuff that should be in the phone already, like a simple chronometer/timer; 2.
Pagué por calidad Nokia y me dieron un artículo "MAL HECHO EN CHINA"

Summary: La maravilla tecnológica me duró sólo 30 días antes de que el "speaker" fallara y luego la pantalla de video SIMPLEMENTE DEJÓ DE FUNCIONAR... buscado razones terminé por entender el porque... NOKIA utilizó partes baratas hechas en china... después de que mis anteriores teléfonos Nokia fuesen "eternos" ... ahora son me doy cuenta que los nuevos modelos son desechables a precios de "estafa"... los peores $450 gastados de todo mi vida...
Summary: This is my 5th Nokia. I love these phones for their good quality. BUT this is the 1st one I see they made in china. If I had seen it physically, I would never had bought it, trust me. Ufortunately I never did, I trusted it was a good phone, now I'm in Mexico stuck with a trashy phone I cannot send to be fixed until I go back to the US.
Summary: All the great things about this phone including size are erased by a faulty headset speaker, which according to a couple of people at Nokia Discussion's forum even if I sent the phone to Nokia Service, after a couple of weeks the speaker will probably break down again. Apparently this happens with phones whose IMEI digits 7th and 8th are "02". Can I check with Amazon before buying about the IMEI digits?......
Summary: Frankly, this phone has lot of positives but unfortunately they got one of the most basic feature all messed up. To me, that happened to be very very important and hence my low rating. [...]. First some good things: 1. Very very cute little phone. 2. I love the styling and build quality (assuring those who are on sidelines about all the build quality complaints this phone is getting). No slider rattling. 3. Keys have a good feel to it and you know you pressed it. 4.
