Let's face it, for every one of us who pays attention to the UI there are loads of people who don't really care, just want to put a nice pic on the wallpaper and have a reliable phone. You're right...

If you like a device enough (or are "made to want it"), you'll be prepared to compromise on many things. Using rational observation it's clear that physical buttons are better than touch for the...

Nearly works on my n900 although for some reason it identifies it as an iPhone (how embarrasing!). Picture is fine, but the audio is a bit too broken up for the experience to be worth repeating. ...

"comes with bits" - nice one - better than the iComesToBits

RF transmitter would be nice, can't see it doing the battery much good though.

I loved my n95 and he's right, a lot of what's replaced it has failed to impress. I do own a n900 now and while I agree with most of the negative points, I think it just about justifies the upgrade,...

I agree, I am for one bitterly disappointed that they see the dual slide form factor disappearing. It's clear that touch is grabbing all the column inches at the moment but TBH, neither touch nor...

Why does there always have to be a "but". Why can't they release the X6 without CwM without sacrificing the internal memory! TBH though, I still wouldn't buy it as I have loads of music and my...

Firstly, great rant Steve. I've had near word-for-word rants with my peers every time they've pulled out their phones to show me the latest mind-numbing UI 'feature'. These days I just wander off...

I think the comparison is a fair one and am quite suprised that the n96 has been so maligned over the last year or so. Maybe because it always seems to be just a bit under-powered...just not quite...

I've had two of those HS-83s - both out of the box, with my N95 and my N96. Both have failed on me mainly I think because there is a battery inside (please correct me if I'm wrong), and this goes...

Touch vs Buttons

We may not have a choice! All of the latest & greatest phones seem to be heading towards screen-tapping finger-friendliness. Personally I still prefer buttons as most of the "cons" mentioned in the...

Works really well on my N96. No problems with portrait / landscape auto adjustment, T9 fine, no memory full issues (yet) and generally a reasonably nippy and well-thought-out browser.

Just Enough

It is definitely the case that mobile phone functionality has reached critical mass, but it is also the case that phone manufacturers are trying to eke out the sales by doing "just enough" to entice...

Hey Steve, I really think it's about time you added a local storage category. I for one cannot get enough Gb for media...or have you taken it into account in other categories?

Oh come on Steve, I know you're not the biggest fan of the n96 but it is very definitely their current n-series flagship. Agreed, there's quite a few things that still need to be got right and Nokia...

Video Recording

You request experiences of recording video on various smartphones so I thought I'd wade in with my experiences of n96.

I do record a reasonable amount of footage on the phone and generally it...

In total agreement - I hate touch too - nice to play with but not anywhere near as practical on a day-to-day basis. I like the idea of a touchpad for web-browsing but have yet to see a decent...

A micro-sd card, well that's an improvement at least. Now just need to get rid of the proprietary connector.

Worked fine over-the-air for me. All settings remained intact, not quite the huge speed difference I'd hoped for though.

Thanks guys, I really enjoyed this. It would be very interesting to see if the more-boutique phone manufacturers put their handsets through similar tests. (bet they don't)

I agree about the omission of the dual led vs xenon - this is one of the few areas where LED will win out over the generally more desirable big brother.

Again, the Innov8 does seem to have more...
