I got to re-experience the new Nesries models yesterday along with some of their siblings. I had the N78, N79, N82, N85 and the N96 all on the table.

As you can see in the photo, N79 and N78 has almost the similar length(or height, for some people) and the N85 to the N96.

I was focusing more on the N85 yesterday. I realised in this prototype model, the key presses sometimes does not trigger the actions and I had to press a few times.

The screen, well once again i’d like to say.. that its the best screen i’ve ever seen on a Nokia. The colour is super vibrant, very realistic and very clear. I had to set the N96 screen to the brightest in order to catch up with the N85’s screen which was just set to medium brightness.

Here you can see the 3 candybar Nseries. Can you see how must smaller and thinner the N79 is compared to the N82? All these 2 models have the same 2.4″ screen.

Here’s a video to show you the clarity, brightness and the colour on the N85 screen.

I was actually schocked to see the menu icon animation… never expected Nokia could do this. haha.

Try to hear the sound effect when the slider is pushed up. Another surprise for me cos previously I didnt hear it when I played with it at the N96 launch.

Next up. More videos!

Was the animated screen part of the phone because I’ve been watching other reviews on this phone and the menu screen was not animated. Did you download anything or mod the phone in any way? And if you didn’t what country did you get this phone from like what version is this? I know the US version has a really simple, plain menu.

Very informative post. Nokia N85 looks best in terms of design and styling in its segemnt. It is a true value for money mobile in comparison to its rivals. Am planning to buy it soon.
