  • Nokia N82 is considered the next N-series bestseller and, guess what, it has already hit the shelves. Following the sweeping success of Nokia N73, it was a pretty sure bet that a worthy successor wouldn’t take long to appear. As we see it, Nokia N82 fits that description perfectly and our eagerness to test it for you should come as no surprise.
  • Key features:-
    5 megapixel camera with auto focus and Carl Zeiss optics
    Xenon flash and active lens cover
    2.4″ 16M color QVGA display
    128 MB RAM
    Wi-Fi with UPnP
    Built-in GPS receiver and A-GPS functionality
    Nokia maps application covering over 100 countries worldwide
    Convenient standard 3.5 mm audio jack on the top
    3G (with HSDPA), EDGE and GPRS support
    Symbian OS 9.2 Series 60 3rd edition Feature Pack 1 UI
    TV-out functionality
    Automatic UI rotation
    Stereo speakers
    Large capacity battery.
  • Main disadvantages:-
    Controversial design and questionable ergonomics
    No RDS for the FM radio
    Below average GPS performance
    Extra charges apply for voice assisted navigation
    No office documents editing application
    Doesn’t charge off USB .
  • Controversial keypad:-
    The alphanumeric keypad of Nokia N82 is surely its most controversial component. The tons of negative feedback the Nokia N91 received for its similar layout does make one wonder why Nokia decided to have another go at it in such a landmark product as the N82.
  • Music player
    The music player is another good Nokia N82 application. There are no dedicated music keys but controlling it with the D-pad is just as easy and you won’t miss them much. A huge number of audio formats including MP3, AAC, eAAC+ and WMA, are supported. The M3U playlists are also managed flawlessly and files are added to the music library by simply choosing the refresh option.
    Sorting your songs by artist, album, genre and composer is automatic and searching tracks by gradual typing is also available. Transferring tracks to Nokia N82 can be achieved via Bluetooth, USB or by simply downloading them from the internet. You can also use a card reader for that purpose and transfer them directly to your memory card.
  • Audio quality
    We hoped that the audio quality of Nokia N82 would be closer to that of its N81 sibling rath

    er than the Nokia N95 but, unfortunately, this was not the case. Our audio quality test showed that N82 is virtually the same as Nokia N95 8GB in terms of audio hardware and produces the exact same sound quality. So, even though the 3.5mm standard audio jack provides compatibility with a huge variety of headphones, do not set your hopes too high in terms of audio quality.

  • Video player
    Nokia N82 features a Real player for playing your video clips. The video player can be displayed in both portrait and landscape mode and can be switched to fullscreen. As you might have guessed, watching a video clip on a screen this large is a really enjoyable experience.
    When in full screen, the softkey functions are hidden so that they don’t spoil the viewing experience and only pop up when a key is pressed. So, topped with the 2.4″ display, it adds up to a decent performance though still behind Nokia N95 8GB standards.
  • 3D Gallery
    The gallery of all Nokia N-series devices is simply great, so Nokia N82 just comes to confirm that. The 3D rotating view looks really nice, but we have to admit that the Navi wheel functionality of Nokia N81 would have been a nice addition to the Nokia N82. Not that it has any superior functionality, but its real fun to use.
  • A camera above all expectations:-
    The camera is surely Nokia N82′s element. Nokia have thrown in a lot of efforts on the matter and have come up with a truly wonderful camera. Not that it is any different in terms of lens, sensor or picture processing from Nokia N95 but the included Xenon flash really makes a difference.
    The convenient cap keeps that precious camera lens safe from scratches.
    The camera set up time is really short. It is about the same as in Nokia N95 8GB, totaling a bit less than three seconds. With Nokia N82 the shot-to-shot time can also be reduced to about 2.5-3 seconds, which, again, is about the same as Nokia N95 8GB. Of course these times are only achievable with the automatic preview turned off. A solid result by all means, loosing to Sony Ericsson K850 by only tenths of a second.
  • N-gage reloaded
    Nokia N82 comes with three preinstalled games. Two of them are based on the new N-gage platform and even though they are demo versions, playing them is a nice experience. The included titles are the same as the ones found on Nokia N95 8GB – Fifa 2007 and Asphalt 3 Street rules. In all fairness, we faced some difficulties with the controls of FIFA 2007, which didn’t seem properly chosen. In fact the only mobile phone where this game was easily handled was the Nokia N81, thanks to the two dedicated gaming keys which did a great job.The third game to be found on Nokia N82 is Snake.
  • Conclusion:-
    Nokia N82 is the kind of gadget to make high hopes inescapable and it is important to know whether it lives up to the responsible job of being the N73 successor. And here it is: in our view, it carries the burden lightly. N82 has all the premises to become a true bestseller, combining full smartphone functionality with the best camera on the mobile phone market.As for the rest, who are considering Nokia N82, we say it’s a buy you will hardly ever regret. Looking at your options first won’t hurt though. The simple math tells that Nokia N82 with an 8GB microSD memory card costs about the same as Nokia N95 8GB, so the choice between the two is purely a matter of priorities.
  • As for the cameraphone lovers, the decision is as simple as that – if you want the best camera on a phone and you’re willing to pay for it, Nokia N82 is the way to go.
