The style of the phone :P it looks dif is the obvo, but im sure theres more as well
Hello GSMArena.com readers.
Seems like the majority of opinions regarding the Nokia N96 turned positive since my last visit to this forum. I'm very glad to see this.
Unfortunately, there are still many critics, iGsm for example, who steadily post incorrect information and preaches on about topics whom he/she clearly have no education in.
First and foremost, the Nokia N96 and the Nokia N95 uses two different processing chips. The Nokia N95 features the Texas Instruments OMAP 2420, while the Nokia N96 will be incorporating a CPU from STMicroelectronics. I won't quote the exact model cause there are a number of sources detailing the device with different models.
Secondly, your comment "...will be unable to manage the music and videos fast" is both wrong technically and in the sense you are trying to state.
A device's "slowdown" is not from the amount of data storage you have, but from the amount of data the processor is trying to access and process.
When discussing how music and/or videos are going to be "managed" regarding mobile handsets, the common reference is data transferring.
The Nokia N95 supports USB 2.0 Full Speed via mini USB port. The Nokia N96 supports USB 2.0 Hi Speed via micro USB port.
Read the difference.
Lastly, you and others alike comments on the battery life and how the device's longevity doesn't meet your standards are quite trivial. What does matter is how the Nokia N96 compare to its predecessors, and to be frank, the Nokia N96 does an excellent job.
Yup it's a good cellphone but it still cannot play mpeg, vob, dat & wmv video
It's not worth replacing my N95 8GB with this one since 99% the same functionality. I'll just wait for their touchscreen unit. Come on NOKIA, it's been a long time but until now you don't have touchscreen unit even your most high-end doesn't have this feature. Unlike SE, they produce decent mobile phones while NOKIA produce cheap "plasticky" phones.
I love this phone!!! can some1 please let me know when it comes out..... i really want to buy it
we in nigeria will be eager to have this phone. but I'm afraid, 'cos of the features e.g. the TV capabilities, it will be affordable only to the rich.
N96 has a nice look, great features but it will luck in performance and functionality.First of all the battery life will be realy poor.As a result of this, dvbh receiver,gps,mp3s and much more will be almost useless.Just think of it..if you talk for about an hour a day and listen to music for two hours there wont be any battery left for videos, gps,(of course you should forget about watching tv or surf the web!!!).Plus the processor of n96(simillar to n95) will be unable to manage the music and videos fast.It will be ok for 3 0r 4 gigs but when you use more memory the performance will slow down at the half or more..this is a fact(just talk to n95 users to ensure you that this is absolutely true!!)
Sorry, it is too late.
The battery is already decided and it is horrible.
The performance will be worst than N95!!!!
Nokia really screwed this up - Sorry Nokia!
This phone is not just thick like a brick but also has a lousy battery!
What the heck they were thinking!
I hope somebody got the pink slip for this!
we need this phone with good battery lifetime!!! please make this phone a perfection with the battery life!!! that's all we askkk more to buy this jewel!!!! we plead so you got to make it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know it's a good fone but can any1 tell me what's the differences between n96 n n95 8g? or it's just 8gb versus 16gb? oh isn't n96 is just the same feature as n95 8gb and take the n81 style combined? any1 think so huh?
i think it is the top of the line in the cellphone products.

Hi guys,ther is a much much much interested news on symbian-freak.oh God it will be a dream phone
Come on Nokia wat r u doing ???? the same cheap battery of the N95 that battery lasts for 10 hours for God's sake !!!!!
All the people buying the N96 on the internet better watch out an check if it its the original one from Nokia as the Chinese Version or Copy is already available so keep a close eye on what you are buying as loads of people got caught out buying the Black 8gb N95 copy as it looked identical an hard to see the difference with looks but the camera was only 2mega-pixel an it no gprs or wi-fi so keep a close eye in what you are buying,hope this helps you thanks
Quick question to any one w/ some insight on this device, if you open the web browser can it be viewed on landscape mode? (Horizontal wise). Besisdes that I think this will be a cool phone/PDA to own, it's just the price that kinda makes me think twice about it. Cheers.
