This is one of the worst phones manufactured by NOKIA. It's really really slow and the battery life is really poor.. I like my N95 better than this.
N96 - Dual ARM 9 264 MHz CPU :p
N95 - Dual ARM 11 332 MHz CPU
Thats why its slow :D
djcrickylyttle, 27 Feb 2009I like the phone but have to say it is far too slow sometimes and i find it completely freezin... moreOk after using the phone in power saving mode basically all the time, the battery's lasting quite a bit longer. I also upgraded the firmware yesterday via device manager. Hopefully that's sorted the freezing etc. I'll use it for a while and report back but i think its already running more smoothly!
Also discovered MSN Messenger for it yesterday, SCORE! :D
Can anyone tell me how to work the DVB-H TV function?? I've never used it before and wouldn't mind checking it out.
This is a great phone and I have had it since Boxing Day. For those complaining about the battery, I changed mine after about a week and it operates a lot better. You can use the N95 8 gig battery if you squad it in. The Nokia N95 8 gig battery is twice as good. Regarding it freezing, once you have bought it, go to the Nokia website and update the software immediately. Thereafter you can use it. I am only getting rid of mine as I am getting the Nokia 5800 in April and am giving my N96 to my brother as I amde a pact with him. LOL - April 1st is the day I hand over power. My only complaint is that is very expensive off line.
i love this fone co'z its very cheap, even if i'll buy 100pcs a day, i can, co'z i'm rich dude... its friedly user also, co'z even i'm flying as fast and as high as i can with my F117A Nighthawk Stealth-Bomber going to matnug, i can easily use my fone to txt or call my friends in the Moon, co'z they are doing some experiments there... thats all... thanks

pls i will like 2 get dis product but sm of the comments are discouraging, pls i dnt want 2 have a break of heart after requesting for this product only 2 discover that it doesnt function well. i stay in nigeria and noticed that most of this phone produced dnt function with the nigerian settings, hv got dis imate smart flip and i am so disapointed with that product, though looks very lovely 2 the site, but hv a very low battery storage and most of the applications can not be used in nigeria, hope dis is a different one. i wished to enjoy dis product when bought, pls can some one adviced me if to get dis.
y r ppl here comparing n96 to n95 8gb? they all nokias, no point 2 compare!
Nokia 96 is nice phone though slow and battery life is poor too. If anyone is thinking of buying any phone on the 3 network in da uk- do not bother- bought n96 on 3 and reception even in central london is terrible (can have no reception on oxford street!), 3 also promised i would have internet max but gave me some rubbish internet package i had not heard of- taking months of complaints-the 1st line support is nice but slow and when you finally get to the decision makers they can not be bothered! You have been warned!
