Pros Good camera, good music player, fm transmitter was decent, wifi, gps, geotagging, and more
Cons key space, needs more apps
Summary I just got the N79 the first one I got the screen just stopped working so Nokia did replace the phone. The second does have one pixel out on the screen other then that no issues right now. The screen is great really bright easy to see. Music is easy to play and is organized. There is the Navi whele, scroll wheel similar to an iPod. It is great so scroll through lots of media but got annoying in menus. The camera takes great pictures without the flash for a phone. The colors look great. Fast motion is not the greatest, if you are looking to replace your camera with this do not. The flash had to be one of the biggest complaints I have with the N79. Every close up I take with the flash has a green tint to it. If you step away from the subject it seems to go away. Also I have noticed on some of the pictures I have taken with the flash the top of the pictures seemed to be discolored from the flash. It is kind of lighter, sometimes even white. It is way better then the N97 though, some pictures I have seen have been horrible when the flash is being used. Another great thing about the camera is that you can Geotag the pictues, record GPS location of wher you took the picture. A great feature with that is you can see the location right on the phone instead of uploading it to the web. The keys are cramped on the phone, that is the price you pay for a small phone though. I have decent size fingers and do not have much of an issue, mainly just with the 1, 2, and 3 keys. Gps is pretty good I have not really used it that much. I do like that it goes on the web to find stuff so it is up to date unlike most GPS units. The N79 does not seem to be a very popular phone compared to some of Nokia's other N series. I have not been able to find a lot of apps on Ovi for the phone. One app that works very well with the phone is Nokia Vine, the reason I bought the phone. If anyone has a nokia phone with GPS this is a must have. Call quality has been fine for me no issues here. Reception is good where I live no one gets great reception and I am constantly jumping from 3g and Edge. Thought compared to other phones I have had it is a lot more stable.
Pros Technology and Look
Cons Keypad is hard to type message quickly
Pros Great Camera, similar pros to other user reviews, music quality is really good, and FM transmitter?s been reliable.
Cons Feel is cheap, should be sold in different colors on offer, battery life dismal have to charge daily, crashes over and over!! Not durable.
Summary Camera?s excellent, use it to even send ?scanned? documents. Transmitter?s great, no need for extra connectivity to play music in the car, or through other radios when I need to hear some good tunes ; )
Not durable, it fell off my desk and when it hit the floor (plastic) 2 feet below the faceplate cracked?and just try getting a new one! And if you find it, the cost cause they sell the whole covering as one.
had the phone for only 5 months and now it?s freezing, battery life is terrible one day of use only after fully charging.Crashing a lot. Restart the phone and within max 1 minute of use it freezes, so I have to restart and then hope that I have enough time to pull out a tel number to call from another device. I went back to Nokia after an unimpressive time with Samsung (two devices) and got this type of reliability as a welcome back.
Gets only 1 star for me because I bought it recently for $270 and its now got to be sent back.
Pros GPS System is good to use, and the multimedia support is awesome, if used properly the phone is one of the best of Nokia phones, Camera quality is very good
Cons the keypad is little unfamiliar compared to other phones
Summary The phone supports maximum formats of audio and images and is a rough tough model, with a user friendly view which gives a user a perfect phone
