By the way, I own the N82, and that by far is one of Nokia's best!!! Had to add that in :-) The N85 may be my next target because its just like the N82 but a little more advanced & a dual slide design!! awesome!!
"while our totally biased review is over here."
I love it that gsmarena.com have a good sense of humour =)
To the anonymous person, the N96 does not suck!!! The only problem with the N96 is that Nokia took toooo long to release the device but still wants to put a pretty heavy price on it compared to the N82, N85, 5800 TUBE and so on. In this type of market, you cant wait forever to release the latest and greatest, and then throw that kind of price tag on it because customers will have already chosen other alternatives due to poor timing; not to mention, the price will turn them off as well. Most would look at that price and say they might as well go with something like the N85 or something; At least the N85 has an Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate & Touch-sensitive Navi wheel (unlike the N96).
I hate this SET!!! And my Reason is NOT Price, but performance!!
It has been 5 iterations of N-Series and you Nokia R&D still can't give us "The N91 Music" w/ better Camera ...
Now, even N96 is inferior to N91 in music terms as review says ...
Please Nokia, Stop Misguiding people ... You are Cheats!!!
Anyone purchases a $900 Set to find Inferior Audio Quality, with Bass abnormally increased, as if it's SOME CHINESE STUFF ... Why Nokia?? Why???
Please GSMArena staff, let me Vent out my frustration ... like you did your way...
I bought the nokia n96 and hated it I sold it back on eBay the video camera future freezes and it wasn't I expected too pricey...so I bought an iPhone and I couldn't be any happier
I DONT LIKE the way GSMarena acknowledging that N96's review was "BIASED". what's wrong with you guys. Keep it within you and let readers wonder.
Horribly over-priced if you compare with a N95/N85/N82
wonder y will any1 buy this at such a cost when even nokia is going touch screen at much much cheaper prices!!
