Pros Great set of features, I'm a tech, feature type of person, always on CNET, and when i look at phones I always say to myself that if this phone had some features it be the perfect phone, well i think i finally found a phone that is the ultimate phone.
Cons The battery doesn't last but i been using this phone to the max, camera is a bit tricky, the flash come on then it turns off and then turns back on to take the pic. I just went from the curve to n85 so texting is a lil getting use too.
Summary Overall this is a great phone, I'm really enjoying it. The navigation is better then my magellan and photos are crisp. I got the internet on this phone which just lets you go all over then place and explore beyond belief. It's an amazing phone... Oh yea, i read alot of reviews and it said that the build quality was crapy and some other things, and kept comparing it to the N95. Personally i think it's decently built, i never had the n95 so i can't really compare but if you ever wanted the n95 and thought it was to bulky then this is the phone for you.
Pros Form factor, auto accelerometer, screen size, 5mp autofocus Camera, Wifi, built in Radio transmitter, OLED screen
Cons mediocre Sound quality ( N81 by far sounds the best) battery life, just because battery is bigger doesnt mean it last longer.
Summary could have been the best phone but packing the phone with an arsenal of features possibly could have affected the phone's sound quality. too bad. that was the only thing that disappointed me. guess you just cant have everything.
Pros On device downloaded maps with free updates. Excellent WiFi and phone reception. Excellent screen. Loud, clear for size speakers. Great battery life. ATT with unlimited internet for $10.
Cons Rare restart if you have more than 5 apps running at the same time. S3 OS not covered as well with compatible software for downloads
Summary I have use my phone for about 3 years without any problems. I bought a Google android 2.2 to replace it. No deal. Reception, GPS, camera, better on N85. I use the android for a PDA only now.
Pros Similar to the N95. Sleek design, Great camera, lots of memory, easy to use interface.
Cons Speaker problems. Button problems. Slow performance. Cheap plastic case.
Summary The phone looks great. I purchased this phone because Nokia builds solid products which are easy to use and also have many great features. I have the N95,which i still love but now my right, left options and exit buttons don't work and this happened just from plain slliding and closing the phone. The N85 however is a peice of junk. This doesnt seem like a nokia product or nokia just built this phone to make big profit.
These are the following problems I am experiencing with the N85.
- the speaker gives out or goes really quiet when I'm on the phone.Like the volume just goes UP and DOWN (very annoying)
- the hangup, options and exit button are not working properly
- plastic is cheap quality. I don't know how but it cracked.(N95 much more solid built)
- the phone is very slow sometimes
If you are thinking about this phone STAY AWAY! I recommend the N95 or any other phone but don't waste your money on this one. I'm regretting it very much.
