Pros great functioning, smooth and fast.
Cons look, battery life is poor if you get to use all the features.
Summary great phone over-all.. switched over from an n95 and an n70. great phone. fast, slick, great menus and very responsive. like a lot of reviews on the web i didn't find it difficult to use the slim buttons at the bottom. they are quite spaced out for better functionality. I was a bit dissapointed at the way it looks.. hope they come out with a black model. I'd love this in black. lots of functions.. great gaming.. (though primitive) love the speakerphone volume. battery life sucks if you go to use all the applications. i had to charge it atleast once a day. great camera, love the resolution of the picures. and am surprised it focusses just fine in the dark . xenon flash is brilliant. illuminates a small room very well.
overall a good improvement over the n95.. (though you don't realise the screen size difference after a day or so).
I'd surely recommend.Updated
reducing the rating a bit now.. because just after 2 weeks of useage. the phone has hung a couple of times while accessing the camera. i had to restart the phone (removing the battery is the only option.. all the buttons freeze). .hopefully htis isn't a major problem.. or i'll have to seek replacement.
Pros Music player with DRM support; Wi-Fi; GPS; 5 MP camera
Cons It's not very sexy; keys are a bit tiny
Summary I LOVE this phone! I recently got another phone so I could listen to my music...unfortunately I found out it would not play DRM-encrypted music. Since almost all of my music comes from Napster To Go and the local public library, this made the phone pretty useless for me. Then I found this phone. Not only does it let me use these subscription services, it also allows me to surf the web for free with WiFi! There are so many great things about this phone!
The only problem, and it's a minor one, is the keypad. It's not conducive to quick or accurate typing, but the rest of the phone is so great, who cares!Updated
While it's not the perfect phone, it comes awfully close. I wanted a phone that would allow me to surf the net and listen to my DRM-protected audiobooks, and, after a lot of frustration with other phones, I finally found this one. I LOVE this phone. It's not very sexy, true, and the keys take a bit of getting used to, but this phone does everything I need it to do (and more). No buyer's remorse here!
Pros Real Dig.Cam.
Cons Batt. if you leave things on
Summary No need for picket cam with this in your pocket!
All i can say is I'm loving it!
$479.00 well spent!Updated
My only downside is i'm using it on Tmobile which does not have 3G yet and makes the great web apps and GPS useless away from WiFi!

"VERY HAPPY"on by skinnyflip
Pros 5mp camera with xenon flash, playlist, real player
Cons Phone can't stand on it's side
Summary At first, I had planned to get the Nokia n95, till I saw threads of N95 vs N82. The advantages of the N95 was that it had a bigger screen and a nice design. Advantages for the N82 was that it takes nicer pictures, cheaper then the N95, and does about everything the N95 does.
I purchased the N82 from http://smart-mobile-gadgets.com with a 4 year warranty. The thing that almost prevented me from purchasing the n82 was the keypad, but after a day of using it I'm able to drive and text with one hand. Also the pictures it takes are awesome, especially at night with bad lighting conditions. The N82 came bundled with Adobe PDF reader, office viewer, and real player.
The only bad thing I didn't like with this phone was that it is unable to stand on it's side. The camera has a self timer, you'd have to purchase a tripod from ebay or something to use that feature.
This phone isn't for everyone. It depends on what your looking for in a phone. If your looking for a phone to browse online at ease, the N82 is capable of doing so, but may not be as good as the Iphone. If your looking for something made out of metal, then you should check out the Nokia 8800 Arte which is made out of stainless steel and has a scratch resistant screen. If your looking for something cheap, then obviously this isn't the phone for you.
If you do purchase the n82, make sure you purchase some sort of cover or case for your N82. I suggest buying the invisible shield from www.zagg.com, you'll be glad you did. Also join the club at www.everythingn82.com for questions or talk with other N82 users. Overall I think the N82 was well worth my money.
On the side note, cnet stated that this unit doesn't support US 3G. We shouldn't put the this phone for not supporting US 3G, instead we should look down on US 3G for not keeping up with modern times. Europe and some other countries such as the Philippines has the ability to do video calls, while US is falling behind because we're too busy calling ourselves number 1.
