Nokia N95 8gb - slowest phone ever

Before anyone suggest a software update etc etc, I've done it, tried it, got the t-shirt etc etc.

The phone is just bad. The way it sends an sms is just poor. Instead of whacking it into the outbox and letting you get on with other stuff it sits there saying sending and you have to wait until its done.

I "upgraded" from an N80 and ok so the N95 has a bigger screen and better camera,but thats where good points end. There are so many things I hate about it, but mainly its just very very slow!!

Please Nokia, next time you make something that looks like a porsche, make sure you put the porsche engine in it too!!

My N95 8GB doesn't behave like that at all. There's no waiting for sending messages.

Something's amiss with your unit, I'd say.

How many messages do you have stored in the phone?

Have you considered that you may have a faulty one or one that is bogged down by network branding/features?

The last N95 8GB I used was much faster than an N80.

And just as a benchmarking exercise ( nothing to do with sending SMS, but everything to do against a claim that it is the "slowest phone ever" ):

The N85 8GB is on the first page. I'll leave it to you to find the N80 on the list.

It has format, then a sw update. Then I restored text messages, around 700 and about 40 pictures etc. Its the amount of data.

Would hate to see how slow it is when its full 8gb+

That amount of messages would not slow it down.

It is either faulty or has network crippled firmware.

Networks like orange (for example) are well known for slowing phones down with their firmware variants.

Then it is obviously faulty and you should either return it or take it to a nokia care point.

It is certainly not normal for it to be slower than an N80.
