Nokia N82

 

A powerful camera phone with built-in GPS that's good enough to replace your digicam. Just bring money.

5-MP camera with impressive flash ; Real GPS receiver ; Solid call quality ; Long battery life

Very expensive ; No 3G support in the U.S. yet ; Only 100MB of on-board memory ; Video-calling not supported in U.S

The Nokia N82 isn’t for everyone. Not only does it cost a bundle, but it doesn't yet offer 3G data support in the U.S. Nevertheless, we highly recommend this premium camera phone for its stellar picture quality, GPS capability, fast surfing over Wi-Fi,...

Nokia N82 review: Comes with xenon

 

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...

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...

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

Nokia N73 is said to be the most successful Nseries handset to date, with monstrous sales figures compared to the rest of the N-series lot. N82 comes to succeed it and become the most affordable of feature-loaded Nokia cameraphones. The Finns quote its...

Nokia N82

 

The N82's top-line features are offset by less-than-ideal design and poor battery life. We hate to sound like an Australian Idol judge, but while the N82 has all the bells and whistles of other class leading smartphones, it the lacks the...

Best camera phone to date, Excellent connectivity includes HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS, 3.5mm headphone port, Side-loaded MicroSD card reader and bundled 2GB card

Ridiculously tiny keypad, Chunky candy-bar form factor, Poor battery life

Nokia N82

 

Finally, a camera phone that gets the camera part right! Thanks to the Nokia N82's excellent xenon flash, I'm genuinely comfortable using it to replace my digital camera, and even my camcorder in a pinch. I know, it's crazy, since cell-phone cameras...

Best camera and video phone we've seen. Loaded with useful applications. Fast

No 3G. Text entry is a bit awkward given its numeric-only keyboard ; Watch the Nokia N82 Video Review

You can finally ditch your digicam: This talented smartphone is also the best camera phone we've ever seen.

Nokia N82 Review

 

Nokia finally produced a cameraphone with real flash - Xenon. The N82 takes what the N95 offers, adds powerful flash and now is usable in every lightning condition, pretending to be the best 5-megapixel cameraphone on the market. It also is a...

Nokia N82 Review

 

Take a look at the what the Nokia N82 has to offer in terms of design with its sturdy and machine look. We also examine the user interface of the Nokia N82 with its Symbian S60 and how they tie in together to make this a great N-gage gaming phone

The Nokia N82 is a great phone for serious communication and play alike. With this Nokia phone you get the benefit of the N-gage gaming platform features as well as the benefits of free navigation assistance from Nokia, all on a device packed with a...

Nokia N82 Vs N86 8MP Camera Comparison

 

The first difference you should notice is how the wide-angle lens on the N86 makes you feel as if the pictures were taken further away from the point where the N82′s pictures were snapped. This isn't the case in reality. I was holding the 2 phones next...

All in all, I believe the N86 is a true successor to the N82, and the wide-lens, large aperture, bigger sensor, and video light advantages should be taken very seriously. You shouldn’t forget that it also has a Panorama mode built-in, and now with the...

The Nokia N82 is the latest member, however, in addition to its bumper resolution, it also comes with some bumper dimensions to boot. While it's relatively lightweight, when measured against the five megapixel competition, the N82's footprint (length x...
