The first Nokia N95 review

The Nokialist has the first Nokia N95 'review', although obviously it's a pre-production model of some kind. Still, interesting reading! Via E61 Life.

Read on in the full article.

They couldn't test the wi-fi, the battery, the PC Suite connection or the GPS because none of them were ready yet... how exactly is this a review?

They openly admit that "we are testing an early beta unit". Early beta? You want to write a review based on an early beta?

This used to happen all the time in games magazines, some "reviewed" the second Elite sequel "Frontier First Encounter" and gave it a great score on the assumption that the bugs and unfinished bits of the beta would be fixed for the release, only to look like total idiots when the final production version turned out to still be full of bugs and completely unplayable.

The point of a review is to let you know whether the actual finished product is worth buying, but if they don't have the finished product (and they admit as much in the text) then they can't possibly answer this question.

Yep. This is nothing more a long feature list with fancy pictures and sceenshots. There's nothing new in there. They're talking about how great the pictures this thing takes are without any sample pics, about how fantastic the video quality is without any sample footage, about how "more effective" the phonebook is without any screenshots or description of the changes, about how the email wizard has been "enhanced" without again any screenshots or further explanations...

It looks to me like these guys have never actually used this phone.

There wouldn't be a problem it was labelled a preview, it's just annoying when they say stuff like "EXCLUSIVE! First review!" which is a lie.
