Nokia N95 8GB smartphone

Hardcore handset that has the whole package

Intelligent flash storage arrays

The two-step capture button and autofocus system work pretty well, and image processing speed appears to have been improved in side-by-side tests with the original N95.

Imaging results are top class for a cameraphone. Colours are bright and clean, with plenty of detail and sharpness - very pleasing. And you can upload snaps straight to Flickr and Vox accounts as one of the sending options once you’ve taken a shot.

Video recording quality on the N95 8GB is also exceptionally good for a cameraphone – among the very best we’ve seen, in fact. It can capture MPEG 4 video at 640 x 480 (VGA) resolution at 30 frames per second, delivering smooth, clear images that can pass muster played back on a TV screen.

Nokia N95 8GB smartphone

Wi-Fi's handy for IM-ing

Nokia boxes the N95 8GB with a TV cable, so you can view video and all sorts of other content from the phone on your telly. You can also share video calls in this way too, if that takes your fancy, using the secondary video call camera in the front of the phone, above the display.

The impressive video capability extends to playback of downloaded video. Few would argue that a 2.8in display is ideal for viewing video, but as a platform for on-the-go entertainment, the N95 8GB really delivers. To demonstrate this, Nokia is shipping the N95 8GB pre-loaded with the full movie version of Spider-man 3, which played back perfectly smoothly on our review sample.
