I am gona buy a phone this week.i still don't know what phone 2 buy n85 or n96 ??is n96 slow??? which 1 is the better 1 plz help!!!!!!!
hi good day im planing on buying this phone and im reading some feed back that it is slow.... so should i buy this phone or not?? your personal opionion please!
Previous phones used- Nokia n76,Nokia n81,Nokia n95,Apple iphone,HTC touch HD
I have had this phone for a month now. I upgraded the firmware to v12.043 the first day i got it. I will give my review now.
Things i liked
1.Camera quality great outdoors in natural light.
2.Theme effect look too good after update.
3.Watching videos with the stand is great.
3.Design and finish quality is pretty good.
4.Web browser is great and the browsing experience is good too.
6.New features in the feature pack are great too.
7.Sound quality is very good.
8.GPS support for 3rd party apps.
Things i didn't liked
1.Material and build quality not 2 great feels cheap.
2.Camera quality not 2 good indoors and at night flash not 2 useful.
3.Phone can sometimes be unresponsive and slow in opening some applications but only sometimes.
4.Battery life not too good but good enough for 1 day.
5.Buttons have a space in between and can be a perfect spot for dust.
6.Plastic sucks needs a steel body.
Overall the phone is very good. The closest to iphone is guess in using the FP2 and themes do make it for a very good experience while using. With the nokia services like Ovi it makes it even more great. The phone is great and guyz no phone is perfect and its closest to perfect i have seen.
Where can i find some Application or Games for the Nokia N96..... I search all over the internet but i couldn`t find .... If some want and could help me i`m gonna leave my mail email@example.com
Used this phone for about three months now and all i have to say is that it's made pretty well and fantastic when it works, which half of the time it doesn't.
The features it packs are unreal but for some reason it's slow and clunky on even the simplest tasks such as opening the messaging and playing music.
Furthermore, it's plagued with glitches and behaves erratically when using just a few features simultaneously, constantly freezing, turning off randomly. In addition to this the included software is frankly unusable.
Conclusively, from someone who isn't a phone geek, just a normal user, this phone is brilliant in theory. In practice is simply falls short in way too many ways.
Hope that helps anyone who just wanted a simple opinion. I would buy the phone again to be honest, but it's a love/hate relationship of epic proportions.

Dani, 07 Feb 2009I got to play with the N96 in a shop, Though i know its got good features..The Keypad and mate... moreyes the N95 8gb is a better phone than the N96 in many respects.
it is more powerful + is more secure. the firmware is also mature
I got to play with the N96 in a shop, Though i know its got good features..The Keypad and materials used felt CHEAP! The Keypad was wobbling side to side like a Seasore and the back cover felt like one of those recycled coke can..
Basically N96 is good phone but its materials are cheap!
N95 8GB feels much better
should i upgrade my nokia to a N96 or an N85,what does the dual processor mean to n96,and a single 369 to n*5,what does it mean!?

I bought the N96 3 months ago.
My advice is not to buy this phone because it is not practical and it has alot of software problems.
It has been many times that this phone has let me down when I need it badly. Restart and flickering and freez are the most popular issues.
Also, the material of this phone is sooooooooo cheap and it is not heavy duty.
hey guys bought the 96 few days back.. but the only problem is the battery life ... i can live with the other disadvantages of 96... but not the battery life ...
so i was wondering can I use the battery of my n95 8gb since it's 1200 mAh it will squeeze out more juice???? ... but don't knw would it cause any harm to the 96 .. so can u guys help me ??
