for me this phone Rocks !!!
apart from its big memory , instant access , and a far better camera quality , this phone is far more superior than all , ya its true that N96 have some issues which cant be neglected , it has a battery problem and a plastic body problem but besides all off its problem N96 got some speed , Gprs & other office docs works awesome , n people u cant compare N96 with 5800 n other phones ...
N96 is a giant full access speedy phone and its expencive price worths for this beautifull gadget ...
Dani, 03 Mar 2009N95 8GB is KING still......I agree. Bt iv cum 2 a conclusion that the N96 only has build quality and bettery life issus. I say in my the share the Kingship seat! Im on fw v12 and hav 1.3gb left in mass memory. And it runs smothly i even hav theme effects on. Cnt wait 2 c wat the next fw upd8 wil do.

My N82 died on me after less than a year of a moderate use. I didn`t even drop it once. What a waste. So no more Nokia for me. They used to be good 5 years ago, now they simply fail to keep up with technology and completely not user friendly. Val.

And i wornd u bout the back cover nt beingable 2 close nycly... How cn the bettery go 2 hell? U got a fake 1 there! The only difference between the Bl-6f and Bl-5f is that the Bl-6f is a bit thiker and has more capacity . Bt voltage and current are identical so ur the noob. U probly used a fake charger of bettery ! Il prove u wrong and post some links of reviews proving me ryt!
i have this phone.the software is good and the memory is big i have a lot of films and good quality videos.if you need videos download realplayer ,then download from youtube videos and then download coyote ipod conventer.then convert videos from mp3 to mp4 and you will have very good videos on nokia just for 20 megabytes l0l
one film good quality is 500mg and you can watch TV on your nokia n96 .this is very cool i watch my favourite program
I using N96, the latest firmware had rectifies the battery problem. And there is a lot of software run smooth on it, if u experience a little slow, kindly install your theme in the phone memory, others all using the 16GB memory, leave the phone memory as empty as possible. if you wish to set ur own pic as wallpaper put it into the phone memory as well. others all ok, i always surf net and listen song at college, so far the batt stil can last me whole day, even if i run the GARMIN gps also. Speaker are sweet. Core Player works very well on it, movie are havin great resolution. The only problem is the S60 script now still cant really support 8GB SDHC, will will be laggy, 4GB SDHC are well perform. Wish upcoming firmware will rectifies this prob. Only bad things is the camera are not very good as expected, nite scene not nice, other all are fine much better compare to N95, but lose to N82, and there is no instance button for camera, need to hold the capture button to active camera, tats the only thing i dun like, other all are great. worth to buy!! Best part is the screen, while u tile it and on GPS, goods good while driving and very clear. Again save ur pocket to invest another addition GPS.

I used BL-6F on my N96 and now the battery's gone to hell. I had to waste 40 euros to get a Bl-5F! And I've also got a cracked back panel. That's another waste of money.

Try upd8ing firmware via nsu then switch al unecesory conections of lyk bluetooth and wifi scaning.. Then switch of the navi weel breathing light. Close ur music player if u not using it . On music pres options then scrol up 2ice select exit. This is the last thing u can do 2 salvage bettery is 2 switch 2 power saving mode. Power buton then activte power saving mode.
U cn also try the BL-6F bettery from the N95 8gb. Rumor is it fits bt the back cover dosnt close properly.
I like the phone but have to say it is far too slow sometimes and i find it completely freezing sometimes. Battery life as with my last nokia (N95) is pretty poor too. I use the net a lot so this completely kills the battery then i have to run about the rest of the day with no phone. Its a good phone but I did expect a lot more. Would rather have kept my N95

[N72? That phone has been around since 2006. The N72 doesn't stand a chance against the N96 when it comes to memory, and IMHO it's no longer a head-turner.]
