Nokia N85 review

If there is one thing Nokia has gotten right with the Nokia N85, it would be the look and feel of this Nseries mobile phone. As you’d expect, N85 is the latest in the Nseries, and it is a high-end multimedia-rich phone. In many ways it’s similar to the N95, last year’s hit phone which set the benchmark for features. The N85 comes with many of the same features as the N95 but in a much thinner form factor. Yes, we simply love the slimmer design! Those of you who prefer your phones thin and feature-rich will agree with us!Design wise, the curved edges of N85 help to accentuate the impression of the phone’s smaller footprint in the hand. There’s a 2.6-inch QVGA screen, with the key difference being an OLED panel. OLED displays, which have better screen legibility while consuming less power, have been used before on Nokia’s S40 models. So it’s good that Nokia is now implementing this in the higher-end Nseries too!Like every other phones available today, N85 offers an MP3 player and a video player. However, what’s different is it also offers access to Nokia’s own Music Store, with direct access to the store’s features provided by its dedicated media buttons. The music store enables you to download music over the air, meaning you can download your music wherever and whenever you want! So convenient I can die!There is a 3.5″ headphone jack that supports virtually all headphones on the market, while the phone’s speakers produce surprisingly good quality sound. N85 supports full 30fps recording and not surprisingly, the video quality is excellent.

In addition to music and video, the N85 also comes with Nokia’s N-Gage capability. This simply means you can download and play stunning 3D games. Truly, the Nokia N85 was built with gaming in mind, with dedicated gaming keys and superb crystal-clear display screen. N-Gage games are popular these days, and the platform has recently attracted some major publishers to jump on board. You can now choose from award-winning games such as The Sims and Worms, with more games becoming available soon.

In conclusion, the N85 is not a major upgrade from the previous N95 models, at least not in terms of features. But if you are looking to replace them with a more stylish handset, the N85 is the one. The good things with N85 is its excellent QVGA OLED display, full set of connectivity features, the bundled 8GB microSD card, and the stylish design.
