After the success of the N73 in the N series category of Nokia cell phones, now its time to pass the throne to N79. First of all its a Symbian S60 FP2 powered smartphone.It has got plenty of Style statement with changeable Xpress on covers. It comes with 3 such covers colours of which depends on the colour of the base model. Base colours are black, grey, white. I personally like the white colour. Build Quality is excellent, till now i must have dropped it about 8-10 times and no scratch. Camera quality is excellent, a little below than the N95. FM transmitter function is great specially when you are in your Car and want to listen to your songs stored in the N79 just transmit over the waves, no bluetooth is required. . My general use is 3 hour of music, 3 hour GPRS, 2 Hour WiFi daily and with this usage battery goes on for 2 days. My advice when you have got it do not remove the front screen guard cut the silver portion on the right corner of the screen and it will go on for months together. Its still on after 9 months of my purchase. The best thing compared to similar ranged phone is ample RAM, 120 MB of RAM ensures that you can run Many apps in the background without slowing down the system. It does not Hang very frequently, till now after 9 months of usage it got stuck for 3-4 times. Camera quality in the dark is very acceptable, Video recording at DVD quality with 30 fps is crisp. Two of my friends also own N79 and no problems till now. Overall I'm satisfied.
