Re: n95..battery life..

I think it is normal,it has 950 mAh lithium ion battery and it is slightly upgraded from N80. And if y use its multimedia operations,GPS etc it has to be charged once a day.
Y can do this things:
1.Switch wlan scanning off,
2.Set display brightness at relatively lower contrust.
3.Use bluetoth only when y need.
4.This is from my experience, I bought a spare [another same battery] and when I have to go far away from my home I keep it with myself.
Thanks.

Re: n95..battery life..

What have you upgraded from? If it was a smartphone, especially an N series, this would not be a surprise to you...

I think once the battery's up to full charge it'll last a bit longer, but the points that korngear made are good ones... another that might help would be the 3G - if you don't use video calling, or don't need it generally, switch it to GSM only... it doesn't require a reboot like other models, so it's easy to switch back quickly.

hi! thank you much for your responses!

*korngear: i did not realise other multimedia apps would affect it that much! i will be sure to change the settings and see how much battery life i can save.

*richcowell: my previous handset was the sony ericsson k750i, so i was not aware of the "n series reputation". thank you much also for your tip! i will switch it to gsm instead and see how it goes.

[n_n]/ thank you much again!!

Re: n95..battery life..

You're welcome, glad to help.
If you do a lot of internet browsing / downloading on your mobile then disabling the 3G may not be suitable, but as it's easy to switch, it's worth a try.

Rikowell,by slightly upgraded I meant N95's battery is slightly improved from N80's. And hey! Thanks for admiring my good points.
For battery consumption for multimedia use: plan for what y are goin to hear or view next hours and dont use buttons unnecessarily and best if y set the default settings for each different players[like smartmovie, dvd player etc]. The lessy use buttons the more y will get more time to enjoy.

My question about upgrading was to laisan, who said he'd recently bought the N95, I was just wondering what previous experience he was comparing it to :smileyhappy:

As for your gratitude for my 'admiring your good points', you're welcome, but I think 'agreeing with' would be a more suitable and accurate description :smileytongue:

Re: n95..battery life..

I again admire rikowel who let me to write his name instead of richowell. Thanks.
For battery consumption for phones like N80 and N95:brightness setting is a very important thing though I did not like it. For furtha battery consumption, like if I wish to play songs after midnight I switch to offline mode. Wish nokia could add a option to play soNgs without turn4ng on da phone to save more battery power.

Re: n95..battery life..

*korngear: it is hard for to me to plan what multimedia apps i will use..but i mainly i guess is the camera, as i am a bit of a photographer at heart and i find that the camera on this handset is just wonderful!! [n_n]..umm..as to the other multimedia functions, i rarely listen to music on it or watch videos..the only music i had transferred to the handset are to be used as ringtones..and i guess any videos i film on it will just be transferred to my pc once i get home etc..just to save memory space [n_n].

*richcowell: i am a she not a he! :smileytongue: har har..and my previous handset was sony ericsson as i said beore..umm..i actually quite like the nokias..i find them a lot easier to use..and before the sony ericsson i had a nokia, and i thought it would take me a while to get back into nokias but it is just so simple [n_n]..oh! but about turning off the 3g..i couldn't do it..i looked it up in the manual which said to go to: tools -> conn. mgr -> active data connections and you can switch from 3g to gsm..but it just tells me that there are no active connections? tell me, am i doing something wrong again?

*nj15: [n_n]/ hi! thank you much for the welcome!! har har..umm..a walkman phone? now i wonder where have i heard that old chestnut from?? :smileytongue:

Re: n95..battery life..

WALKMAN® is the registered trademark of the Sony Corporation.Walkman phones enables you to play your music library without turning the whole phone(the whole thing).

I'm still hoping that Nokia will also add this feature on my N5300 xpressmusic line.

Yes I think so:
Tools - Settings - Phone - Network - Network mode - GSM

Re: n95..battery life..

Whoa! Geez.You have fooled me! Where you from?


SE must not be a threat to the whole Nokia company.Nokia is proven far better than it's competitors making it the largest mobile manufacturer.

Re: n95..battery life..

laisan, y made my job easy.
If takin pictures is yr real or main objective then do it. Do take pictures with yr customized settings and one thing:if y are in a place where y need to take photos after short time interval y better open that application and close it until y finish.If y are not interested to use multimedia players heavily then battery power luck might be with y.:smileyhappy:
