    The battery

    Hey all, this is my first post so I'll just say HI! xD

    Well, I'm planning on getting the N82 soon, but I've noticed it's battery life certainly isn't something to cheer about.... something most Symbian S60 phones have in common.

    Since I'm pretty heavy on music, I was wondering how many hours of music (average) can the N82 can handle with some average use every now and then while playing it?

    This was posted on another website when doing a review when the N82 first came. so assume this is based on the earliest firmware etc.

    GPS-navigation – 3.5-4 hours
    Video – 4 hours 20 minutes
    WEB-surfing (EDGE) – 3 hours
    Wi-Fi (non-stop data upload) – 3.5 hours
    Music (in earphones) – 11.5 hours
    Games – 4.5 hours

    when you get it

    * adjust brightness level to middle
    * timeout power saver at 10 seconds

    You should be good to go

    I've heard that having it up to the maximum on the brightness level doesn't really do that much damage to the battery.

    Thanks to the smaller, dimmer, screen it probably has the best battery life of current N-Series phones (even though some have a larger capacity like the N95 8GB). Its better than both the N95's I've had in this regard. The battery gauge also works properly, so you should always know when to stop listening and leave the phone for calls etc (the N95's tend to show full battery gauges and then drop precipitously of all a sudden).

    Speaking of the screen... how bright can it get? When I saw it in the store the screen lighting seemed really weak.
