Hi,
My old faithful friend 3220 got 'rain-washed'. Neways, I need a new phone which shud have ...(priority wise)
1. Camera -> atleast 3.2 MP
2. Price -> Rs.15000 Soft limit and Rs.20000 hard limit!
3. Wifi/Wlan, Edge
4. Style
5. Fine speakers

I searched and found N82. Looks promising. Please give your opinion and suggestions! :)


Thanx!


PS : Please do not initiate mobile wars (like Nokia Vs Sony Ericsson), FUDs or biased reviews! If you have a phone that meets the specs then please tell how satisfied you are.

Nokia N82 is a great phone...U don't need 2 think twice before buying it....Its a great Value for Money..Has a 5 MP cam with Xenon flash and Carl Zeiss Optics, A-GPS, Wifi, 3G...Its cam results r far superior than any other phone in this category presently...Its a symbian phone...U can install a lot of applications..U can store unlimitied entries in the phonebook..It has 3.5 mm output jack (u can plug in any headphones), TV Out (u can view pics on TV), Motion Sensor..It can shoot videos @30fps in VGA format...

The N82 is definitely the phone 2 buy.....Go for it...

However, if u want a 3.2 MP cam phone, u can buy SE K810i or N73 ME..Both r gud in their own ways...

^Ya sure man, go ahead! But please make it look informative.

@dreamcatcher, I can't wait for any new releases. I've been thinking, asking and irritating everyone over the issue and have to decide quick. :)

Woah, really? But I must say 'no' to N73ME and I have my reasons coz it doesn't have wifi. Wifi is a must in this hifi age. :D

Thanx guyz, keep the flow coming. :)
 
I am planning to sell off my iPhone 8GB and buy N82.How much will it cost?Does it have GPS,3G,WiFi?What is the size of the memory card?What about sound and picture quality?
How is it compared to K850i.I'm a bit confused between these two.

I know nothing about N-Gage, but will find about that too. I hope others will reply. I dunno about the showrooms in pitampura (its faroff, but reachable via metro), but AFAIK there is a showroom in Connaught Place. You may need to confirm that. There is a showroom in Vikas Marg though as my friend told me. Showroom is no problem.

You can reach connaught via the pitampura metro station or if u own a bike like the rest of the Delhi's traffic-cutters.

N82 supports N-Gage , and it has a dedicated 3D Graphics Accelerator chip so games look smooth & cool.

It also has Flash lite 3 for watching embedded videos in the browser itself.

How is it compared to K850i.I'm a bit confused between these two.

The N82 costs arnd 19400 at the present moment...It has GPS, 3G, Wifi...It is an all in one phone..A 2 GB Micro SD card comes bundled with it...However u can use a 8 GB Micro SD Card with it easily...

If price is a constraint as of now, u can wait for 1-2 months...The 3G iphone is being launched this month on contract basis by Airtel and Vodafone..So, to stay in the competition, Nokia will definitely drop the prices...Nokia has already slashed its prices by arnd 10% on selected models in UK...Hopefully, Nokia will have price cuts in India soon.

And so I checked out
1. Asus m530w -> 2 MP => not suitable!
2. Moto Q9 -> 2 MP => not suitable!

I guess I'll be checking out on E71 & N82. Thanx guyz! :)

I would suggest for Nokia N82 (Black). I am presently using this device since for quite some time. I use Wifi/Wlan at my office ... it's a great feature.. It's all in One phone... I got it for Rs. 19500 couple of months back.. its worth the value

Thanx for givin the valuable inputs. I want wifi for the same purpose. And how about the sound quality compared to N73?

Sound loudness is low compared to N73 & K850i. I use Sony Ericsson ear phones, the music is surprisingly great through it.
