I've been trailing the N85 for about a month now but haven't found anything good to write about it. Its an expensive feature packed phone but I would never buy it.
- The phone looks sleek , slimmer than many other phones , but its heavy.
- The much talked about OLED display looks great indoors, but in bright daylight its hardly viewable.
- The USB charging is a welcome feature, but dont forget to carry the USB cable/charger when going out somewhere. I made a mistake, not carrying the charger to my trip to Bhandardara and was left with a dead N85. I could have got any other Nokia charger from friends/hotel staff.
- Picture/Video quality not as good as the N95 or the N82. Even the videos I was able to take at Bhandardara were jerky. Upgrading to firmware 11.047 didn't make any difference either. The camera lens cover is not that easy to slide unless the phone is held in a particular position(not ergonomic I must say). The N95's cover is much better or better still don't provide a cover like the N958G.
- The numeric keypad felt OK , but the softkeys/menu key/'C' key and the navigation keys suck. They are very hard and the softkeys even make a sound when pressed. The 6210 Navigator , which I trailed just before the N85, had one of the best keypads I've used.
- The keypad sliding is smooth but the multimedia/ngage key slide is just the opposite.
- There's this small keypad lock toggle switch , but I've hardly used it.
Like I said , I've got really no nice words to say about the Nokia N85.
