    Front VGA camera

    On which of the following Nokia mobile phones, can the front VGA camera be operated without making a video call ?
    N 95 8GB-
    N 73-
    N 82-
    N 78-
    6500 SLIDE-
    E 90-
    E 71-
    E 66-


    Secondary VGA camera in the front of a phone can function as a mirror , if it can be operated without a video call. I have used N73 & its front cam. works without a video call. But what about the others in the above list? Only hardcore users will be able to tell!

    Yes, front vga camera can be switched on without making video calls. I have done it on N73.
    But users are not contributing about other mentioned phones, its an interesting feature & the best way to view your own image.
    Please, users of various mobiles shed more light about the feature!

    Yup, in the N-series, you can use the front camera to take pics... even make a video.

    But I aint sure about the 6500 slide and the E-series phones though.

    cheers!

    Thanks so very much, I was curious for a long time.
    Even video can be made! this is news to me.
    Does it work for all N series phones? Mainly N82/78 ?
    6500 SLIDE & E series users should contribute their views.

    e series afaik can't take pics/vids with second cam. You can see your image in video call without making a call but the network must be configured for vid calling first. Most Se phones definitely can as I always used to press icon by mistake and see my ugly face on screen. As a last resort, e71 has a reflective back cover. Less discreet though.. What's wrong with a blusher mirror? If you're a girl...

    E90's front cam. works solo, I checked it out. Video calling is available on 3g networks only!
    E71 back cover cannot be used for mirror purpose.

    I think any N-serie could take photo using the front camera. there's an option where you could switch between the main and front camera. It's part of S60 feature i guess.

    Hi. How does the E90's front cam work? On mine there's no setting to 'use secondary camera'.
    How do you get to it? And hey what's wrong with e71? Fair enough there's a few curves round the edges but polished up it just as good as using a front vga cam. Good enough to see the spinach between the teeth anyway.

    If its a part of S60 platform, then it should work on E series also as e series also has S60.
    On the E90, photo through the front VGA cam. is displayed in the left part of the big screen. It is small in size & does not spread to the whole screen.

    Yes, but the front cam on the E90 can.

    On the E66 and E71, you can only use the front cam for video calling only.

    Only nokia knows the answer to that.

    But If I were to guess. Im guessing the E90 was made as a compliment to the popular N95 - like an E version of that phone. That's why it has almost the same features in multimedia yet retains all the connectvity of an E. Both phones have FP1 too, if Im not mistaken.
    The E66 and E71 are not meant to compliment anything - theyr made, from the start, as part of the E series. And they have FP2.

    Maybe your guess is right. But why are reviewers like dogman & eldar murtazin , clearing doubts? Or even they dont know!
