Nokia N85 Mobile Phone Review

Editors Review

The Nokia N85 is a sleek and compact slide type phone available in black or copper. With a large 2.6 inch screen featuring 16 million colours and 320×240 pixel resolution the display is bright and clear with crisp graphics and smooth transitions between modes. With 6.9 hours talk time and up to 363 hours on standby, this 103mm x 50mm x 16mm Quad-band phone packs a lot of features into a small lightweight package.

The camera function is superb, a 5 mega-pixel unit with 20x digital zoom, CMOS sensor, Carl Zeiss optics, Red-eye reduction, Tessar lens, Dual LED flash and Auto-focus. Video is good too, recording in mp4 with a 640×480 resolution and 30 frames per second, along with 8x digital zoom. Up to 90 minutes of high resolution video can be recorded and the Nokia image/video editing features are both comprehensive and intuitive. The quality of both still photographs and video taken with the N85 is excellent.

As a music player the Nokia N85 is fantastic. All popular formats such as MP3, WMA, AAC, eAAC, eAAC+  are supported. Nokia music manager allows selection by artist, genre, albums and composers.  A crystal clear FM radio with RDS support is included as standard. Both the volume and the sound quality are particularly good on this model.

Personalising the N85 is easy with MP3, AAC, AMR, WMA and polyphonic files available for ringtone selection and 64 polyphonic ring tones already preloaded into memory. In addition to the 78Mb of internal memory up to 8Gb of additional memory is available with (hot swappable) MicroSd card. A huge selection of Java games are also available to download.

In terms of internet and connectivity, the Nokia N85 is a real pleasure to use. All the main browsing technologies such as HTML, XHTML, MP, WML, WAP & CSS are supported with the Nokia web browser. GPS along with Nokia maps is included and the N85 ensures no loss of signal when travelling with automatic roaming between GSM bands to find best network. Connection to other devices is simple using Micro-USB, USB or 3.5mm jack. With SMS, MMS and Email services supported, it’s easy to stay in contact where ever you may be.

Active shutter lens protection on camera
Great camera (high quality photographs and video)
Ability to listen to text messages
Stunning music player with quality sound, plenty of volume and 30 hours of music play back

Keypad not the easiest to use for texting being slightly cramped
Slightly smaller screen than some competitors
The copper colour option looks a little “naff”

Nokia N85 – Summary
The N85 goes right to the top of the class! According to Nokia “the N85 takes the world of mobile convergence to the next level.” - bold claims indeed! However, we have to agree that the the N85 has a fantastic range of features, is simple and intuitive to use, and is definitely one of the best phones on the market.
