The Samsung INNOV8 unit that has been reviewed by those sites is a pre-production unit only. That's not the final version. I don't believe that two different phone models will have same audio quality. Even N95 and N82 which have the very same hardware which controls the audio output don't have same audio quality, N82 a tad better than N95 in sound quality. Let's just wait for a proper review. I hope they will compare INNOV8's sound quality with N91. But I doubt they will, since N91 is a long-forgotten device already. So I'm gonna stick with Samsung INNOV8 which has the best image quality and best sound quality among all phones right now!

An audiophile wil know that the margin of audio quality between n85 and innov8 isnt that big. The audio quality doesnt match all the above factors and that n85 wins in these factors. Thats why n85 is a better music phone.

Read the reviews like smape.com or mobile-review. Plus, majority of people wont notice the difference between n85, n96 and i8510.
Nokia Neva said the N96 was an upgrade 2 the N95 8GB.......its an ALTERNATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted 2 purchase the N95 8GB yet i didnt coz i needed more space.....so The N96 is an ALTERNATIVE.........Nokia realised that peaople are different so in order 2 suit the needs of numerous people and meet there charector standards in wat phone they should use, they produce a number of models with similer features for u 2 choose from.....that way they meet ur perdonal needs.....!!!!So if u dnt like the N96 that means it wasnt ment 4 you......Your baby is being Made by Nokia as we speak. So leav the N96 Alone....!!!!!i woukdnt purchase the N85 coz it dosnt give me wat i need....!!!!
check the nokia N98 guys

Anonymous, 14 Sep 2008Oh, Dani boy. You sounds like a cry baby, begging attention by dissing Nokia phones in a Nokia... moreAs of what Mobile-review said about Sony Ericsson they said 'Sony Ericsson have good youth appeal and eye catchy design'
that was in the W980 review
then i read 5310's review and they said 'it has full functionality with youth appeal'
oh yeah and the DSP chip
basically they were on Nokias side and yeah i know why .
but still ...yeah truth be said they are right about SE sort off
I bought a Nokia N95-2 8 GB.
Unfortunately, the phone seems to be faulty out of the box.
First I noticed that the sliding screen cover was a little loose and I suggested to myself it wasn’t a major problem and that an adjustment could be done to fix it at nokia service deparment, but the worst was about to come.
After charging the device fully I turn it on. A massage “start-up failed, contact your retailer” appeared. After 3-4 attempts the phone loaded and was working. It was a little slow and with some strange menu jumps at first but, after a couple of hours the phone restarted by it self and seemed to be working much better. I tried to restore the phone, using the N-Series PC suit program which I had from my other N95-2 but, unfortunately again, this attempt failed through the progress at 81%.
My last attempt was to update the firmware as that the new v.30.0.018 was available from Nokia software’s updater program for this phone. This action was installed successfully and made the phone working much better, but again you could notice that it wasn’t perfect and it has turned off several times by its self.
I’ve had NOKIA phones all my life including the N95 and N95 8GB so I think a can be in a position to understand that something is wrong or not.
8 hours from my purchase of this phone, made me hate it and forced me to give up and repack it.Not even the screen sticker was ever removed.
With all the respect, all the above mentioned are very honest. I think I deserve a fully replacement and not a fixing service. I have decided to will wait for the new N96 or N85 to arrive. I hope NOKIA SHOP accept my decistion.
