The Nokia N95 cell phone features a 5-mega pixel 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.
Nokia N95, the 3G smart phone, is built on the Series 60 Symbian interface version 3.1. The common drawbacks with these version are these types of phone are slow, have a tendency to freeze or shut down, and have unstable firmware. They are also large and heavy. At 120g the N95 is of average weight for a smart phone, but is pretty bulky, despite its slide design. When closed, you can access menu functions using the 5-way navigation key and the associated control keys. The N95 also has several other dedicated media keys that can be used as shortcuts to media functions. When you slide the phone open you have access to a full keypad.
The first multimedia feature that you encounter is the screen, and it's a massive one: 2.6 inches across, 240 x 320 pixels, and an incredible 16 million colours. An ambient light detector is used to control the brightness of the screen, making it usable under most lighting conditions. It's one of the best screens ever, and does full justice to the camera and navigation systems.
The camera is a first to hit the 5 mega pixel mark in a mobile phone. At this number of pixels, you can match anything that a dedicated digital camera is capable of. The N95 lacks the optical zoom of the N93, but retains the auto focus, flash and lens. The video camera is also outstanding, recording in VGA resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, at up to 30 frames per second with stereo audio. There's a second front-facing camera for making video calls too.
The other most interesting feature of the N95 is the built-in GPS navigation system, that communicates directly with the satellite. This enables you to use the phone to track your position either on foot or in-car. These are the most ground-breaking features, but the N95 has almost everything else you could think of including in a phone too: a music player with support for all common music formats, a stereo FM radio, integrated hands-free speaker, speaker independent voice dialing, talking ring tones, HSDPA and lots more. When it comes to connectivity, the N95 is the best-connected device one can avail, with support for Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, Infrared, Wireless LAN, TV-Out and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Its memory is also more than adequate with up to 160 MB of on-board memory and support for microSD memory cards, up to 8 GB.
