List of advantages and disadvantages of NOkia N95i.

Hello
I have been offered the Nokia N95i, and am interested in it, but was wondering what the key advantages and disadvantages/ issues with the phone is?
I have read some of the posts on here, and there seems to many to read, so if you could create a list, that would be a great help to me making my mind up on whether I want it or not.

Thank you in advance.

Hello,
Thank you for your replies.
As there seems to be no Nokia N95i, is there a Nokia N95 with 1GB of memory?
Thank you in advance.

No.

Please understand that someone is trying to con you. If they've already tried to sell you a phone that doesn't exist, there's no reason why they wouldn't try the same thing again. You have every reason not to believe anything this person says.

I seriously doubt you will ever get a genuine Nokia phone out of them.

Here's a page where you can see most Nokia models and a round-up of their specs:

Re: List of advantages and disadvantages of NOkia N95i.

Hi
Thank you for the information.
After looking on the website, I can see some differences between the three Nokia N95 versions.

The Nokia N95 (first one) is Silver.
The Nokia N95 8GB is Black.
The Nokia N95 3-NAM is Silver and Black.

The seller is asking £100.00 for it and it comes with box and accessories, as if it was new.

Is there anything else that will determine that is a fake?

The fact that there's no such model as the one he's trying to sell you should be a pretty big indication!

Also, you don't want the N95-3. NAM stands for North America Model. It won't work here in the UK.

Re: List of advantages and disadvantages of NOkia N95i.

The price is the biggest clue. A second hand N95 would still sell for a lot more than that, probably at least £150.

Do not buy from this person if you have the slightest doubt. It won't be a bargain if it's not a real N95.

If you are not familiar with the N95 then it is hard to tell a real one from some of the fakes. Features to look out for on fakes are touchscreens and dual sim holders. The real thing doesn't have those. The fakes also don't have a nokia operating system but that's harder to spot. The text on the back of the phone where it says "nokia Nseries" is usually in a different typestyle on fakes.

Re: List of advantages and disadvantages of NOkia N95i.

Sure sounds like a fake to me. If it sounds to good to be true then it probably is. The market has been flooded with very good fakes recently. It is almost impossible to tell them from the real thing until you actually start using it.

We get people coming here everyday wondering why their new N95 isn't working as it should.

there is no such phone as the n95i
should you buy this device it will be your loss
and it will make no sense asking on these forums why it isnt working as there is no such nokia device thus no one will be able to help you.....
you are on your own should you buy this
if you have doubts please check the nokia products page and you will see no n95i is listed

Re: List of advantages and disadvantages of NOkia N95i.

The biggest issue is that if your buy it you will have no warranty. It is not a Nokia, so Nokia will not support you. The company that did make it is fraudulently advertising it as a Nokia, so you'll probably never trace them.

On your own head be it. You have been warned by several people that you're making a mistake.

When something goes wrong, YOU WILL NOT GET HELP FROM NOKIA.

When you have a problem related to using the phone because it doesn't do what you expect it to do, YOU WILL NOT GET HELP FROM HERE.

Above all, the vendor, who may well be a criminal, WILL BE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND and you will have NO WARRANTY.

You're on your own missy. Good luck.

Yep. Odds on she'll be back here shortly asking why the touch-screen has stopped working...

The easiest way to spot a fake is the GPS feut. Originals have it, fakes don`t.

Good luck!

The only advice I have to give on fake phones is not to buy one.
