Nokia's N95 8GB: stacks more memory

Unlike most upgrades, where cosmetic tweaks give a long-running model a new lease of life, there are real and significant differences with this Symbian S600-based smartphone.

The extra 4GB of storage is the obvious headline-grabber here, allowing the N95 8GB to match the capacity of the Apple iPhone and the Sony Ericsson W960i.

But the N95 8GB is a formidably-equipped smartphone in many other ways too. It sports a high-end five-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss-sourced optics, a network-assisted GPS receiver, a multi-format media player, and good connectivity with HSDPA 3G and Wi-Fi.

There are more instantly notable changes from the original N95 - reviewed here. Nokia has given the N95 8GB a black makeover, making it a sharper, tastier proposition than the silver version. Screen real estate has increased to a noticeably larger 2.8in, 240 x 320 (QVGA) display, up from the original N95’s 2.6in panel. However, the phone’s chassis itself - though still chunky and a hefty 128g - hasn’t got any bigger, so the control key array below the screen has been squashed to accommodate the bigger screen.
