How is the N95 the best when during the day the N95 and N82 are equal, and at night, the N82 thumps the N95, Hmmm?

the K850i (in this test) have the old driver 2.9 but the latest is 3.4 i don't if this is important saving time depends on the memory card( my k850i takes 3-4 sec) in my k850i the foucsing takes 1 sec in good light but in poor light the same time as in the table

u can use the 100% crop to c which camera phone is better in each situation, then u'll find that the site's opinion is not honest. compare it to the cannon camera and u'll c thet the n82 is not the best after all

There is no question about thequality of the images from N82 to all these other phones. Not to mention the Assist GPS, literally takes only 5 secs to lock. Duno why those SE Fans still argue when the winner is so clear...

I got the N82 one week after it was released and the N95 is not better than the N82.There is not one spec that is better on the N95, except 8GB memory, although it is internal, the N82 has no limit of expandable memory. It also has a xenon flas and N82 is much smaller, N95 too bulky.

I agree with the convenience of meshing camera w/ phone. but I have radiation concerns and it be better if I could i use the camera half and power off the phone half to stop it from emitting when I just using the camera. But none of these models have separate power buttons for camera and phone, so i will have to look at a simpler solution: buy a camera-less phone and a decent point-and-shoot. Not only will this alleviate my radiation concerns but alos give me much better camera in terms of picture quality and workflow.

but radiation is everywhere, turn on the tv its there, the microwave, the radiowaves, the satelites pounding down their "radiation" so we can have satelite tv, being in front of the monitor, just living in the 21st century. only way to avoid it is to live int he countryside in a concrete bunker lined with lead.

A shame there was no test for video, the Viewty probably wouldve won that for sure. As well as features.

N82 is the sole ultimate leader

To the unnamed person who posted on January 13: That is not quite accurate; the N82 has a smaller screen than the N95, no infrared transceiver, and no dedicated music keys. Also, there is no version of the N82 available for U.S. 3G bands (either 850/1900 or 1700 MHz). It does have a better camera through (mostly because of the Xenon), and the GPS receiver is placed in a better place (at the top of the phone, instead of under the "0" key) for a quicker fix. Yep, the N95 has slightly more girth, but the N82 is significantly taller (2.4" vs. 1.9"). To each their own. To argue about which phone is "better" is kindof pointless - we all have different priorities. Heck, for some, even the iPhone may be the "best" there is: Despite dismal bluetooth, no cut/paste/search, no 3rd party app platform yet (not even J2ME), no official unlocking mechanism, dismal camera w/o video, no 3G, no GPS (even ability to use external Bluetooth GPS), etc - it does have perhaps the nicest user interface available, a very good form factor, and some software things not even found in Symbian S60 - such as a built-in stopwatch. Personally, I cannot wait to see if the rumored Sony Ericsson P5i is real or not...

This test seems to be incomplete: no human face tests, no nature landscapes, sun and sunless weather, etc

I have a n82, is the best, the video quality is great, much beter than the others, and the xenon flash is very very good, absolutely is the winner

I agree G600 is the one of the best and has good price for your pocket I got one. there is no doubt, the winner is n82, it is most complete, but LG Viewty, has the best video by far.

26. kai (unregistered)

just as the editor said, during daylight, the g600 is the best , pretty close to sd630. n95 and n82 have more noise reduction compare to g600, which not so perfect. but duting night, the n82 definetly is the best
