Dammit people, Don't you realize this is a pointless debate, you guys are taking about phones that are centuries old in tech terms. I have used Nokia (E n N series), SE(T and K series), and Samsung(Various not not expensive ones) phones, so I have good idea about phones(Not the service-providers).
Look Every phone has its ups and downs. They are built for different markets and prices are set according to features available. Most of the features available are unused by consumers, so why do they buy it then, you ask?
Now why N series you ask? Why the hell not!!!
Compare its price/features ratio with all the other phones, you will realize its a steal. I mean come on can you compare any phone to the N82 which costs Rs26000 in Pakiland, no you can't. My friend has pimped has N73 sooo much that if you saw it you would.....(Use your imagination)..Hence there is alot you can do with these phones
I own a Nokia E61 and a Samsung L700 currently. Right now I use my E61 to watch MP4 .avi divx movies. I read my emails using either some poor saps wifi or at home, I can transfer files via blutooth, IR, MMS, email, Wifi, or USB cable. I used it to read doc files during my uni days,and I installed a call recording software so that I know what my boss wants from me each time he calls me. Whats the difference between my phone and Nseries, well just the camera, better music player, better sound stereo, FM radio, better display, games play better and others.
Seriously go to gsmarena.com, and whatmobile.com.pk, go there and check the price/features ratio, and you will know that the Nseries is a STEAL.
