then i don't see the point of making this thread IF you do say 8gb ver would still be the one you'd pick.
i would rather, (if i were u) accept the fact that it is better than the original N95, and save up more and more to be able to get it.

Backing up?

My N95 classic is stable, no RAM errors, works great.

N95 8Gig has a huge drawback that a mate pointed out to me, if you have lots of stuff on it it takes longer to open galleries and music etc..... It also takes forever to back all that stuff up if you need to format the phone or whatever, it takes just as long to copy it all back again.

My nice N95 classic with mem card means I have none of those issues.

I think those are lame reasons. Most of them doesn't make too much difference or sense. Bigger screen and memory are two reasons, that beat all others up

I agree with #9 - I was constantly dropping my Motorola v635 because of its slippery metal case, but I've not (thankfully!) dropped my N95 so far because of the rubberised back and sides. A return to slipperiness is not a good thing.

#2 is slightly inaccurate. If the 8GB was on hard disc, (rotating magnetic storage) then yes, seek times might've increased a bit (although unlikley) ...

Thus the slowdown must be due to some change in software, which means its likely to be sped up in the future!
You've overlooked the fact that the stupid OS/UI likes to index your entire storage space each time you open your gallery. That's what's causing the sluggishness when you have a lot of files for it to trawl through.

Yes, the N95 8GB I have is unusably slow at some operations. E.g. trying to do an 'Image store' via PC Suite. It's only software though and you can bet that there's a firmware update about to appear etc.

Still, yes, another reason to stick to the more stable N95 classic? 8-)

Hi all,

Well i had the original and had no problems i also had an E90 and had no problems, sold the E90 for lack of UK warranty and sold the N95 because i was bored of it. Was about to buy an E90 again but 02 are hopeless long story, so after watching the Smart Phone Show Podcast have just bought an N95 8GB which of course as soon as the new firmware becomes available will be flashed to Generic firmware. I also have a SU-8W on the way and can't wait really want to see how the extra Ram screen improvements and demand paging all work out. Not bothered about lack of camera lens protector as will get a PDAir case as soon as one s available. 8GB is also more than enough storage for my needs especially as until i compare the sound with my recently bought iPod not sure i will use it for Music or not but it will be used for Video's and Films.

Marc

heh. "When you're bored of a Nokia N95 then you're bored with life" (as a wise man once said!)

14 Stuff on the 8gb card will be 'safer' when you have to do a hardreset for whatever reason.

15 Backup friendlier then the newer version.

No, the 8GB's 'card' behaves like a real one. It won't get wiped when you hard reset.

people who say that the n95 is better than the 8gb one are all betrayed by nokia and i know how it feels it happened with me with the n73 and before n70 so i dont go for nokia cus you buy their phone when launched at a heafty price and 4 months later they have a better version of the same freaking phone. but lets face it n95 8gb is the better one thats a fact.

N95 8GB processing speed

N95 still happens to the the top phone.

I have read that N95 8gb only has a 292mhz processor. go to this link search for N95 and N95 8GB, compare the results yourself.

http://www.jbenchmark.com/phonedetails.jsp

Apparently Nokia has used a smaller processor to improve the battery life, A step in the wrong direction.

Not true. It's the same 332MHz processor as in the original N95, only faster effectively because of the demand paging of ROM applications.

Thumbs down

Wow - these might be good reasons for buying N95, there is one thing that N95 will never have - stable framework and management of the memory (RAM).
Wait for the new N-Gage platform and you'll see your applications start closing because of insufficient RAM...
