This phone is not good. There is only one good phone out on the market the last 10 years and that is the Sony Ericsson S500i. The Nokia N96 is nothing compared to the Sony Ericsson S500i. You can surf, you can take the best pictures ever and you never ever have any problems with the S500i.
For most parts of the world, it will take about 10 years before you can use the DVB-H feature of this phone. So don't waste your precious time and money for this phone.
nick, 08 May 2009haha, i own a samsung innov8, therefore my phone is better than yourshaha.. u wish ur phone is better.... i'm sure ur already tired taking pictures of ur face or taking videos! why not watch tv instead on your phone? haha.. u wish..!!
DVB-H is only available to few countries, supported by few operators and is currently restricted to urban areas only. I don't think there is greater than 1 percent of total N96 users who use DVB-H or who have even the slightest idea of what it is!
Pogings, 08 May 2009N86 ARM 11 434 MHz processor 8 MP, 3264x2448 pixels, wide 28mm Carl Zeiss 8 GB storage ... morejust to correct you.. dvb-h receiver is not an additional feature of nokia n96- it is its primary feature.. without it, it's nothing better than the former models..
Aaron, 09 May 2009N86 is better than N96. The single ARM 11 on N86 is better than the dual ARM 9 on N96. The 8MP... moreu dumb guy! just because u don't have dvb-h available in ur country ur already saying negative things about the phone! dvb-h is one of the best features a phone can have right now- IF U LIVE IN A COUNTRY WHICH ALLOWS IT USAGE.. i've used lots of phones before, the one's with the best cameras, music etc... but in time, u'l feel like bored listening to music or taking pictures...people never get tired of wathing tv right? what will u do to phones with 8MP? are you going to make a billboard?
i'm saying all these things because i believe n96 is fantastic... all you have to do is to research and make the most out of your phone

The single ARM 11 on N86 is better than the dual ARM 9 on N96. The 8MP, 8GB, FM transmitter combined are better than the 16GB, DVB-H combined. The 2.6" OLED is better than the 2.8" TFT. N86 is a lot better than N96. Who needs DVB-H anyway? It's not free and it's not even available.
