You're just going to make nokia rich by buying this phone. Buy phone as needed.
thanks to Farhan for fixing things up =)
u taught him a good lesson =P
ahh yes, i agree with lee..
i also would like to know whether N96 has a better build, solid slider and all..
since i owned N95 8gb, and the slider does not please me at all..
i have tried my friend's N81's slider, since i thought that N96 was built under the design of N81..but i hope they improve it on N96, since this phone is the next flagship for Nokia?
wow, this phone nearly has all the techie stuffs known to mobile phone world, the result, very expensive again, i like this phone though, cause its much more slimmer than the N95.....
can anyone tell me if the n96 has a solid none slack slider as with all n95 even the 8gb the slider build quality is very poor and even the n81 which this phoen looks like has a porr slider to
have nokia fixed or broguht out a solid slider on the n96 ???
LOL, glad to know the N95 succesor is about to be announced
and il agree N96 is the best Multimedia Phone uptil now
and SE is a Great Brand once people own their phones!
the maximum memory is 16GB..
The Hype is eazing thanks to the Weak Battery!
why dont you people think about SE Phones!
youl just be soo much Happier
I have owned n95 for almost a year now, im happy.... i cant see many difrences between n95 & n96.. n96 has 16 GB ( But when n96 is in stores, u allmost can buy 16 gb microSD (8GB is avaible now) BIG minus in n96 is poor battery life.. i had this problen with many other N-series phones. I listen to music all day and play with it, snap pictures, use WLAN, omg... all those drain energy like hell.. SO IM HAPPY WITH N95.. there is not too much improvements to pay about ~ 300 € extra..But if u wipe ur ass with money... GO FOR IT :D
I posted before about trying to buy N96 now. Several people claim to have this phone for sale now but none of them are willing to give the information needed to check the originality of the phone. If you get the IMEA number Nokia will tell you if it is authentic or not. Secondly they have told me there is no such thing as an international warranty in the states. If you buy the phone here it is warrantied here but if you buy it from some place else they will not warranty it. And last of all non of these sellers are willing to let you pay with a credit card but only Western Union which leaves you with no recourse if you never see your phone or it is a Chinese rip off. BUYER BEWARE
I absolutely agree, the battery life is too weak. A 950mAh battery is only supposed to be with phones with small draining power like the 1 series or the 2 series.
Camera 5 MP, Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus,
video(VGA 30fps), flash; secondary VGA videocall camera,
Built-in GPS receiver
Symbian OS 9.3
microSD (TransFlash), up to 8GB
16 GB internal memory
128MB RAM, 256MB storage memory.
Are you want more????
I have a Nokia N95 and bought it shortly after it was released..true it had OS issues like freezing often, however was resolved when firmware was upgraded. I am pleased with the phone and look forwrd for the N96 to be released in time of my upgrade of my contract with Orange...sad to see that Nokia has not added anything much interesting after one year to the N96 than the Memory capacity and slight variant to the looks as well. I am used to the routine of charging my phone everyday and it is ok as I am used to it and also I have bought a spare BL-5F battery and dual charger and carry it with me if I am going to be away from power supply for a while. So it is convenient. so the features out-do the power consumption of the phone.If Nokia improved on power anyway would be much appreciated!
Smooth move Nokia. Did we not learn from the N95 that a 950mA battery would be useless in this phone?
How long before we have a new and improved version (a la N95 8GB) version with a new battery then? Not exactly subtle marketting technique...but it seems to work for them :-s
I HAD THE N80 3H BATTERY LIFE TIME BAD BAD
symbian runns more then one appp at the same time , uses more battery it s logic
activate msn mp3 player , make a video call in , you will have the phone on for 1.5 h
n82 has better battery and !!!1 16 gb lol it s all about memory cards not built in.
The hand set looks v. Nice. I use the standard n95 to it max at the mo manily cos t-mobile give me free data.
The specs seem 2 cover most of the short falls on the n95 ie better web radio support and most importantly it has a large internal memory WITH a sd card reader. This i feel was the main short fall with the 8gb n95 and the n91. How many times did u want 2 transfer files 2 other devices but cudnt with out using a computer. Or incressingly view movies shiped on micro sd cards.
Its just a shame that there is no ir support, a lower spec secondery camera and a low battery life although i wud hope it uses the better power managment software as the 8gb n95. Plus i wonder how gud the reception will be 4 the digital tv?
