High five: Nokia N95
A year later, the N95 dropped a heavy 5 megapixels into our laps. As we said at the time, such a resolution was "unheard of in the cell phone and smartphone world." This time we got a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, a red-eye reduction feature, and an "astounding" range of features. In 2008, Nokia brought the N95 back for another run with an 8-megapixel model.

The good: The Nokia N95 cell phone boasts a 5-megapixel camera that produces good-quality photos and videos. It comes with advanced multimedia capabilities and has a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Symbian smart phone also features integrated GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, and an innovative two-way slider design.
The bad: The N95 lacks support for U.S. 3G networks; standby battery life is poor; and performance is somewhat sluggish. The hardware feels a bit cheap, and the sliding mechanism could be more secure. It's also very expensive.
The bottom line: With a 5-megapixel camera, advanced multimedia capabilities, and GPS, there's no doubt that the Nokia N95 is one of the most feature-packed smart phones to date, but poor battery life and sluggish performance make it hard to justify the high price tag.
