So what's all the fuss about this phone? Well, it boasts a 5-megapixel camera that can also record VGA-quality video, a robust media player with a 3.5mm headphone jack, a dual-slider design, and integrated GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Not to mention, it's a Symbian smart phone as well.
The right side of the Nokia N95 houses the volume rocker, a shortcut to your photo gallery, and the camera activation button. The latter is in a position so that you're holding the phone horizontally, it actually mimics the look and feel of a digital camera.
The power connector and mini USB ports are located on the bottom of the device. In addition to a travel charger and a USB cable, the U.S. version of the Nokia N95 also comes packaged with a TV-out cable, a 1GB microSD card with adapter for SD drives, a pair of earbud headphones, and more.
Considering all the features that are packed into the Nokia N95, you'd think it would be a pretty hefty phone, but the phone measures a compact 3.8 inches long by 2.1 inches wide by 0.8 inch thick and weighs only 4.2 ounces.
While the dual-slider design is nice, we had a couple of concerns. First, the cover, which houses the screen and navigation buttons, felt loose and rattled around a bit. It just didn't feel like it was securely locked into place, and when putting the phone into a pants pocket or even when thrown into a bag, it was too easy to slide open the phone.
