One of the features the Nokia N85 has over the Nokia N95 8GB and the Nokia N96 is its OLED display. It reproduces sharper and brighter colors with better battery consumption. I want to show you how much better the Nokia N85 is at light time-out and power saver time-out.
Nokia N96, N85, N95 8GB at full brightness
Usually when you don’t touch any buttons after 15 seconds, the screen brightness dims. After 30 seconds, the phones go into power saver. Take a look at the differences at how these 3 phones handle these time-outs.
After 15 seconds of inactivity the screen dims and the image above shows how the three phones appear. You see a hint of some image on the Nokia N95 8GB and Nokia N96. Tilting the phones gives you more visibility. Those who already own these phones know what I’m talking about. Now take a look at the Nokia N85. Even at lower brightness, you still see whatever is displayed on-screen.
After 30 seconds of inactivity, the phones go into power saver. You see a hint of the date and time on the Nokia N95 8GB, while the screen on the Nokia N96 does not have an option to display date or time defaulting to just turning off the display. You can tilt the Nokia N95 8GB to see the time better, but it is permanently illuminated on the Nokia N85.
This is just a minor detail, but it’s one of many details of improvements the Nokia N85 has over the Nokia N96 and Nokia N95 8GB.
One more thing. Take a look at the pictures again. The phones all hold the same calendar appointments and To-do list, but did you notice that the FP2 devices (N96 + N85) actually display the to-do notes instead of displaying “2 to-do notes not done.”
