Nokia N95

The Nokia N95 is a smartphone that features a two-way slider allowing its users access to either a numeric keypad or a separate set of media playback buttons. Nokia introduced it to the market in September 2006 under the brand’s NSeries. Because it combines the features of a media player and a camera phone with messaging and connectivity tools like SMS and email as well as Wi-Fi connectivity and web browsing, the N95 was advertised and marketed using the tagline “It’s what computers have become.”

The Nokia N95 was released with the maximum internal dynamic memory of 160 MB. A slot for memory cards up to 4 GB microSD is also made available.

The phone weighs 4.23oz. and measures 3.9 x 2.09 x .83 inches. The standard package includes a Nokia BL-5F battery that can last up to 225 hours on stand-by. The 950mAH battery also has a talk time of up to 4 hours. The Nokia N95’s screen measures 2.6 inches with a QVGA Matrix resolution (320 x 240 pixels). Its TFT color display supports up to 16 million colors and features an ambient light detector.

Camera

The Nokia N95 features a 5 megapixels camera that can take images up to a 2592 x 1944-pixel resolution and can zoom digital images up to 20x. It can also shoot videos up to VGA (640x480 pixels) at 30 frames per second. Videos can be zoomed up to 10x. Also, the N95 comes with a CIF (352 x 288 pixels) front camera sensor.

Portable Media Player

Apart from a stereo FM radio, the N95 comes with an integrated handsfree speaker as well as the NSeries digital music player with playlists and equalizers. This digital music player supports MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA, and M4A formats.

Messaging and Connectivity

Apart from the standard SMS messaging, the N95 features an email client that allows its users to attach documents, photos, video clips, and music. It also allows for web browsing through Nokia’s Mini Map browser. The phone connects to the internet through a built-in wireless LAN and Universal Plug and Play.

Review Summary

The Nokia N95 is an innovative slider phone with a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, a GPS receiver, and HSDPA 3G data support, and dedicated music buttons. The only thing missing is a QWERTY keyboard. All of these features are packed into a relatively small phone. The N95 enlists a triple slide function - up for the numerical keypad, down for the dedicated music keys, which are, in the model we looked at, slightly hidden and rubbery to touch. The main keypad itself is easy to use, and the large 2.6“ QVGA display is vibrant and easy to see. With 3D graphics, the phone has a user interface that makes it intuitive to find the features and services users want. Designed for High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) networks and with support for WLAN, EDGE and WCDMA networks, the Nokia N95 provides coverage and speeds wherever users may be. In HSDPA networks, browsing the internet, reading email, streaming video and downloading large files can be carried out up to 10 times faster than with 3G. With its integrated GPS, the N95 includes maps for more than 100 countries, enabling users to explore the world, find specific routes or locate services such as restaurants and hotels and covering more than 15 million points of interest. Users can also purchase additional features, such as city guides and voice guided navigation.

With the Carl Zeiss optics on the 5-megapixel camera, users can capture print quality photos and DVD-like quality video clips. Photos and video clips can be enjoyed on a compatible television thanks to the device's TV out feature and support for Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) technology. Images and videos can also be uploaded to a number of different photo gallery and blogging systems. The N95 also supports MP3, AAC, M4A, and WMA music playback through its built-in stereo speakers or headphones attached to its 3.5mm headset jack. An FM radio is also included in the N95. Music, photos and video can be transferred through compatible microSD cards or a mini-USB. This phone has it all, and is a great buy for a traveler who enjoys a full multimedia experience.
