Nokia N78

Model Nokia N78 replaced Nokia N73, but at the same time the phone is actually the same as the hardware N82, the most significant difference is the camera module.

The N78 inherited a 3.2-megapixel module from the younger model, the N82 with a 5-megapixel matrix on board is considered one of the photographic flagships of the manufacturer.

Differences from the N73 are more significant - NokiaN78 received a GPS, Wi-Fi module, a better display. An important difference from both close relatives is hidden in the program part - the device, of course, is running OS Symbian 9.2, but with a package of add-ons Feature Pack 2.


Appearance Nokia N78 in many ways resembles Nokia N82, with a superficial examination of the devices can be confused, if you do not know about the color solutions of models.

The front part of the Nokia N78 is black (the back panelcan be brown, blue or white), which in combination with the glossy coating of the case leads to an endless appearance of well-marked fingerprints. The build quality of the case is lame - even with a slight compression of the phone there are squeaks.

Similarities with the N82 model adds a digital unitkeys - they are just as thin, only in N78 they are not separated, but assembled into three horizontal rows. It can not be said that this decision is dictated by the care of users - in terms of convenience, the keyboard N82 is clearly in the lead, it's very difficult to get used to the N78 keys, erroneous pressings are with annoying constancy. The backlight of the keyboard copes with its task - letters and numbers can be seen in any light.

The block of control buttons as such is not present - theylocated on the perimeter of the numeric keypad - on the sides of the central button are two soft-keys, two more function keys are placed on the sides of the numeric keypad closer to the bottom of the device.

Again not the most convenient solution - to, toFor example, to erase an incorrectly typed character with the "C" button, you either have to strongly bend your thumb, or shift the phone in your hand. But from the point of view of design, there are no complaints - the keys successfully pretend to be sensory (although they are not), it looks quite organic.

Separately, we should talk about the 4-way navigation key, in which a sensor is built in (this time it's real) NavyWheel. It allows you to navigate through menus or lists in a circular motion around the navigation key.

A good idea, seriously hampered by the worksensor - maybe it's a matter of excessive sensitivity, but often it works in completely unexpected moments. In principle, this can be tolerated, or you can simply turn off this function.

Also on the front of the phone there is an opening of the telephone speaker, the camera's eye for video calls and the window of the light sensor, which is responsible for the level of illumination.
