...but the pic of the N95 is closer to the camera, so it's screen will show up better. (simple test, the screens are the same size in these devices, they're not the same size in the photos)

Wait... All these comments talking about no lens cover... when did the n85 lose it's lens cover? All of the previews up until now included it as a main bullet point.

@unregistered: no idea about the lens cover thing --????!! The N85 certainly has one.

@stuart: oh give over 8-) The scale of the photo does not change visibility of the screen. Trust me, there's a big difference. However, it's not a total showstopper and adjusting the angle of the device helps.

The power consumption decrease is enough for me on its own.

I am sorry I should have made my point clearer as I realise that the N85 has a lens cover. On the N85 the use of this screen does limit the use of its camera. An example of features that don't necessarily work well together but are good marketing bullet points...

I hope the N82 replacement doesn't use the same screen. Or it has an optical view finder!! That would be excellent!! haha i doubt that would happen though!

2 days with the kind of heavy usage you usually put the phone through??? That is really, really impressive...

I suddenly remember my 6610 days where I had to charge the phone once in 3 days. Have not experienced that since I switched to Symbian 5 years ago.

OLED is that cool... Imagine having a completely black background i.e. no energy is used to display the pixels and you have a clock with something like this "9:58pm" in white which is 1-2% coverage = 1-2% of energy used compared to backlight technology. Obviously this is over simplified to get the point across but that's why the N85 can have a permanent time screen saver on.

@ Unreg...

My father used to make OLED concepts 10-12 years ago. You're right, their lifespan is horrible. His company ditched their research because of that.

It's discouraging if indeed the lifespan of this oled is that short. Maybe nokia's gonna replace them after it fizzles out?

is now longer than the typical user life of the phone

Test Fairly

The reviewer could have wiped the N85 screen off at least before taking photo in direct sunlight. Its like it was left with smudges intentionally to unfairly bias buyers. Very tacky. I dont understand these reviewers with this direct sunlight test. I have no problem seeing my N76 screen in direct sunlight although according to many reviewers it fades greatly in direct sunlight. If I want to take pictures, Ill take them in \from the shade.

Talking N85 screen is awesome

1) The battery lasts forever even on full brightness
2) The screen looks better than it does in the photos above!
3) It is highly readable in sunlight on full brightness (doesn't use much energy)
4) Photos/Videos look awesome on the screen


grail, holy, n85, nokia, oled
