I hope this comment helps many ppl. I used this ph for a month right after its launch. The ph was very slow with hangs and white screen(self restart). So, I repaired at nokia center. Its not slow anymore, but when I put 9gb songs, music player cant see the songs, and then 3D media menu become very slow. When I make video call, it hangs. So, I went to service center for 2nd time. It took a week for them. dunno why so long. When I got back the phone, other things are fine and fast too, BUT video call still hangs. Somemore, my Ngage game gone due to flushing software. And I believe when I use its mouth watering 16GB storage to near full, it will become slow again. So, I sold my N96 yesterday. I can go to service center again, but it is VERY troublesome , like lose all data, reinstalling everything etc.
And regarding design and build quality of N96, it use plastic, but I really like the design. When u look at N81, N85, N78 and N96, they are very similar BUT Nokia never use the same mold to save money. They are similar because it has to be as 2nd generation Nseries. Ppl saying innov8 is hell lot better etc, but personally, I feel nokia N96 design will last longer.
I know many ppl suffer software issues like me. But I think not all units has issues. And I wish nokia will come out new firmware (with naviwheel activited).
I hate my N96, but I dun hate N96. This is excellent ph if all the software problem gone.

Why? They are like the mercedes benz of phones, they are inoovators, the quality of the components is awsome."
First camera phone;- Sharp
First phone with expandable memory:- Siemens
First triband phone Ericsson
First Bluetooth phone:- Ericsson
First GPRS phone:- Ericsson
First colour screen Ericsson
There are a lot more.
Although the first phone without an external aerial was a Nokia (8810) one of the worst phones EVER!
So tell me which other innovation did they introduce?
willee, 20 Oct 2008how long can the batt lasts ? for normal use ( etc sms n calls ) not using wifi n etc..1 day (from 6:00am to 7:00pm)in a 3.5G BAND...but i usually play gamez a Little and 1 video call and also using the bluetooth and listening to some music.
I Sold phones and made my own company selling phones all over the world. I had all the brands in my hand, Samsung included.
Im saying this honestly:
The Best overal Brand is : NOKIA.
Why? They are like the mercedes benz of phones, they are inoovators, the quality of the components is awsome.
Samsung: great tech specs is catching up very fast the Innov 8 is great, even amazing camera but its just an asian product with no personality, sorry!
I had also alot of returns on Samsung, they go crazy after a while.
Very few returns on Nokia.
By the way I buy Nokia from Nokia, not Nokia from Ebay or China (Fake).
So Nokia just rule look at the 8800!.
The greatest phone in the USA: Apple Iphone.
Sorry guys in the USA people can only get horrible phones so only the Iphone is great and its a great product also.
how long can the batt lasts ? for normal use ( etc sms n calls ) not using wifi n etc..
as expensive as innov8 even more so no reason for buying this,i go for samy and i'll save couple coins and have a class better phone,samy is still better built then noki

They are of high quality and very high-tech. Koreans (specifically South Koreans) are a lot better and more advanced than Finnish when it comes to technology! Koreans just like Japanese make not only phones but all electronic appliances and gadgets and automobiles. Little Korean grade school children can already make toy robots as school projects. So,Samsung is a lot better than Nokia because South Korea is better and more advanced and more high tech than Finland. If you are watching Korean TV shows you'll be amazed by their high tech gadgets! South Korea is the most high tech country in the world, second to their cousin, Japan! Don't ever ridicule Korea or Taiwan or any of East Asian countries because I'm sure even your country can't even produce toy robots while little Korean kids already know how to.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I agree with you on this mate, because my mate got a samsung g800 and a few months down the track the phones is screen is gone all funny and he has to take it back, he should have got the nokia n96 as it is an AWESOME PHONE.

For a while the Samsung Innovate was number 1, in one day 2000 votes appeared and it dropped to number 3, I'll bet it was Nokia "fans" giving the phone 1 votes who caused this, for no reason other than to put a Nokia back to 1st spot.
Any threat to Nokia's position will be met with 1 voters which skews the results making them worthless.
I was pointing out in an oblique way the uselessness of the rankings here as a measure of anything.
its a great phone.Major negative is the battery..,back up is very bad...wish Nokia puts in a better battery.
samsung products are very poor not like nokia products.
If u need to make Comparison it will be with lg or some like this.
The teams between NOKIA N96 and samsung innov8 like teams between sky and earth.
Korean products like Chinese products and Taiwan products.
Shadow, 19 Oct 2008Anonymous, bro or sis??? Whatever...don't go around asking people who kimi raikkonen is. Espec... moreyou are right this is my opinion too, I think he have a useless rubbish PHONE and he cant buy the N96 so....you NOW....He wants to make it a piece of junk but N96 is a very very good phone in all (camera,music,memory,screen,performance,Flexibility and easy to use)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Anonymous, bro or sis??? Whatever...don't go around asking people who kimi raikkonen is. Especially if that someone watches F1 or is a fan of F1, They'll be laughing their heads off, like I'm doing now. And stop rambling about N96 being bad. If you hate it that much than just leave it alone, people usually don't go poking their fingers around at things they don't like.
