As soon as I saw that DHL guy heading towards my house I knew it was the N95 coming my way. I've seen a lot of unboxing on other sites, so this was my chance to do it as well. I dont have a Digicam so I grabbed my 6630 while my wife took the parcel. She was equally happy because she knew I always wanted the N95. Took some unboxing snaps, but they were not good enough so posted only one. Its a sand colored beauty. First thing to notice was that the phone vibrates a bit on power up just as the Sony Ericsson's do, never experienced it on any other Nokia.
The firmware version is 11.0.026.
Most of the icons/shortcuts on the Menu were now either under the Tools or Applications folder. Made some new folders and organized the icons. Tested the camera, transferred a song and blasted the speakers, tried out the TVout thing, tested the radio. There were two bars when I powered up the phone which now came to one. So charged it for some time and then spent the rest of the day fiddling with the camera and listening to radio.
My phone didn't come with an external memory, so I spent the second day hunting for a 2GB MicroSD card. Where ever I went there was no 2GB in stock, everyone was ready to order it. But I could not wait, went to every mobile store I could recall. We walked so much that day that my wife lost some weight , just kidding ;) . Finally at the end of the day I got a 2GB MicrsSd card at a shop which is quiet close to my house. Wanted a Sandisk or Transcend but could get only Kingston. I transferred all my favorite tracks on the card and spent rest of the day listening songs and radio. By night the battery was almost drained.
With the full charged phone I started the day by plugging my computer speaker to the phones headset and listened to the radio while I got ready to go to work. That was about 1/2 hour of radio. Browsed a bit while traveling. Installed Gmail app and removed snakes. Didn't spend much time with the phone in office just listened to radio for about an hour after lunch. By dinner I started getting battery low tones. I believe its all because of the radio so I decided not to use the radio the next day.
Fully charged pone, went to office , saw a lot of sites with not so good reviews about v12 firmware. Spent a lot of time searching for any new N95 app's apart from the regular ones like Antonys screenshot, Y-Browser, etc.. . Found this cool race game , I've posted about it. Surfed for some time on the phone, tried out GPS for the first time , got it working in 5 mins. But no radio for the day. Just ending Day4 with this post and the battery is 2 bars down. So pretty much battery left, will see how long it lasts, will not charge it tonight.
Cool phone,gr8 screen, faster than any other S60 3rd Ed I've seen by now. Good camera, the pics are really nice. TV out is another good feature. Loud and clear stereo sound. Everything on the phone is good but I would have been happier if the battery life was better.
I am really confused at the moment about the firmware upgrade thing , dont know if I should upgrade to v12 or should wait for v12+.
