The Nokia N95 and the Loose Slider

July 27, 2007 in Nokia Phone News

One of the problems currently plaguing an unconfirmed number of Nokia N95 phones is known as the “loose slider”.

Nokia N95

Due to a slightly raised metallic piece the holds the slider in place, there’s a gap of about 1/48th of an inch that allows some (vertical) slider movement.

It’s only really noticeable when the slide is open. When you push a button, it feels more like you’re pressing two buttons.

According to some forums, the loose sliders are more prevalent with the APAC models than anything else. Looks like the Asian QC guys were sleeping or something.

So what do you do if you’ve got one of these flawed devices? That’s an easy one. Take it to your nearest Nokia Customer Care center. Or if you’re in the USA, you can fill out an online form, send the phone back, and wait a week or two for the fix.
