Advantages: great phone overall
Disadvantages: camera is a bit sucky
This phone has excellent functionality and is much more stable than earlier n-series phones I've owned...in fact; it hasn't stalled on me yet. E-mail was really easy to set up with my existing account and the Ovi site and general internet work very well. I would reccomend a stylus, because you'll be fumbling for ages with tiny link tabs or constantly zooming in to hit them if you don't. The dialler is familiar to all Nokia owners and the text functions work the same way, with a few subtle differences that can be baffling at first, but the excellent tutorials soon fill in the gaps. The touch screen works brilliantly and is easily as good as iPhones I've tried, with similar swipe/pinch/spread features to move and zoom in/out and the 16Gb internal memory with up to 32Gb on a microSD card gives ample storage for an entire music collection and masses of huge 12.1 Megapixel photographs. The music player looks and works well with the supplied earphones, though it could do with a user-programmable feature on the graphic equalizer. The camera is excellent for general use, but make sure you keep your fingers well away from the front left when using the flash as you tend to get a dark image with a bounce-back of the flash from your finger ends in the top left. The lens is good and the 720p HD video records excellent video.
the bad things are you will have to force yourself not to move your grip at all when recording- otherwise, you get fumbled rustling and popping sounds in Dolby Digital 5.1! Is an external mic going too far on a mobile phone? Another shortfall here is the 3x zoom. Surely, if you're going to fit an excellent camera with the ability to capture high detail; it would have been better to be able to zoom in far enough to take advantage of it.
Summary: oerall a really good n-type phone
