I'm sorry, I can't quite answer that. Reason being, the scenario you gave of 950 mAh battery not lasting for more than two days if you take a couple of shots and listen to an album is too broad. Are you questioning stand-by time after stated usage? Are you including daily calls? What are the durations of the calls? Furthermore, are the calls being based on a 2G or 3G frequency? There's many factors that goes into the longevity of a battery.
Realistically, no mobile handset's battery, under constant heavy use, will last more than two days, or 48 hours regardless of capacity. This is law. Many misinterpret the quoted stand-by/talk times in mobile handsets' descriptions. All resulted times are formulated, which is basically theoretic. This theory does not incorporate other power draining factors. Basic stuff like powering up of the device or keeping the LCD screen lit for example.
I guess the only reasonable answer to your question is that it depends on how you use the device. Overall, a more moderate user will ultimately have longer usage of the device compared to a heavy user.
About the BL-5F 950 mAh battery of the N96
Aw, gimme a break. The N95 and N96 both use the same battery, that's true. And the N96 lasts longer, that may also be true. BUT you can't tell me that the battery can last for more than two days if you take a couple of shots and listen to an album.
GSMArena has also shown the discovery of these new Li-Ion batteries, BUT the N96 WON'T have that type of batteries. So the battery is still its major drawback.
Waiting for a response...
im planning to buy a new phone. is this phone a good one? and how much is this?
the phone features impressed me but i hope that they try mastering one thing and not fool the eyes of people with all the features they would want i`d love to get a hand on one ofthey new phones but the more userfriendly phones nokia goood work
S60 Touch was cancelled due to DRM issues...
And N96 is equipped with n-gage v2 (v1 is a hardware)
Lot of people wished its a touch screen phone.Does anybody know when Nokia is planning to launch touch screen series and why they are behind other manufacturers in this regards.
Motorola is bringing out a touch screen phone later this year with roughly the same specs as this but with a 8mp camera and a better battery.
It offers TV also... cool. too bad it's not like real tv. after all it is just a phone
Surely this ll become hit. 18gb flash memory means nt an ordinary thing.
Response to PDPg.
The overall concept of the tactical feedback is to provide the user with an unique experience. More specifically, when you press a key on the screen, it clicks under your finger with exactly the same sort of fingertip feedback as if you had pressed a conventional keyboard key.
Regards to it being "barely needed", that's an overstatement. Personally, tactile feedback is equivalent to devices' voice speech/recognition function in my opinion. I'll elaborate on that if needed (I'm sure I will be).
I'm pretty sure sufficient battery sources will not be an issue, especially with technological advances like this...
ever wonder why nokia cancelled its production?
that "physical pulse "you were saying
is barely needed because you're eyes are open when you use the phone right?
so that means with your eyes alone you can recognize if the device is responding properly.
that "physical pulse " will surely drain its battery much faster.
"some seriously research." seriously research???? lol
After reviewing many recent posts regarding Nokia's touchscreen, I can clearly say you all need to do some seriously research.
First of all, Nokia HAS BEEN introduced a mobile touchscreen handset. Year 2004 if I'm not mistaken.
How about you all google the Nokia 7700. This phone incorporated many features which you all are so amazingly impressed with in upcoming devices.
Unlike current and past touchscreen devices, Nokia confirmed the S60 touch user interface will support tactile feedback, which means that there is a physical pulse and feedback when the user taps on the screen. This will provide a better awareness of the device's response improving the user experience.
i'm a nokia fan as well as sony ericsson. i have used almost all nokia models. quite disappointing this time that nokia has still not introduced touch screen (atleast for this model). that is why nokia is loosing its market in few countries due to the absence of a touch screen. nokia please wake up???. to use gps touch screen is very convenient
