love it but battery is pants[ok cos i got my n95 battery as well] u will need a spare!! all in good phone tho,the internet radio is brilliant.
I have had many nokias over the years this 1 is the BEST EVER!!!!!!!
mo, 16 Jan 2009what phone do u think i should get? the n96 has the best specs on a phone and the new fp2 ... moreNt al ur info is correct. Just go get the N85! The N95 8gb is perfect it dose instaul apps has the best 3d graphics 4 gaming and is also hackable. The N85 has a gud cam dnt believe evry thing ppl say especialy here in GSM ARENA! coz most hav neva even seen the real device. I mean realy how cn nokia's gaming phone hav bad graphics? Jst go 4 it n85. Dnt let any 1 mis lead u!
what phone do u think i should get?
the n96 has the best specs on a phone and the new fp2 and simbian 9.3 os, but it has a crap battery and slow cpu, lags and divx does not work, ngage is also crap.but i heard it has the best stereo speakers and gps functionality is the best on it.i like the design though.
the n85 has a slightly smaller screen but better battery. it lags and no 3d graphics card 4 ngage. its camera quality is not very good and its speaker sound is crap. its gps functionality is average and the phone looks slightly feminin. it also does not have any memory and requires a memory stick which is quite dumb.
the n95(8g)is an all around phone but is gone quite old now and ppl are upgrading (2 what??). it has a faster cpu than n96 with 3d accelerator. its gps does not work well and no 3rd party apps can be installed which sucks! its has an older fp and simbian software. the phones graphics are not as great as n96. it has no memory card port but 8g isnt 2 bad. it has a single led flash and the camera does not work that well at night.
i am really confused and i really need 2 get a phone this month.what is your opinion? which phone is better 2 get?
i just phoned dstv mobile and they said it is in durban but trial dvbh is only for those that have the samsung p910 and does not work on the n96 anywhere in south africa. they said it will be out during this year but then u have 2 pay 4 it with airtime which will probably be very expensive therefore its not worth buying the phone.
Really crap phone, very very slow, the software is not running well, stopping all the time and the battery life is so short. That's definitly not a buy!
Keep your money. Don't buy this crap if you are a N95 8GB and looking for upgrade. This phone has about 20% suckier battery life than the N95 8GB. It's not faster either. Just bigger screen, more memory. If you own the n95 8gb, you should know that the N96 is a concept of the handsfree square. If your looking for change, wait for the N97 or get the X1.

Where do I find great free apps for n96? My brother gave this phone to me in exchange for my Xperia. For a mean time. Thank you guys!
im i the UK and I have the device for 2 months now, its locked on 3 network, no major problems so far. Comparably, its slower than n85 and n95. I recently updated the firmware, it sped up a bit and I can turn on the theme effects on now without compromising the speed, i also noticed higher 3g signal quality and gps signal quality. anyways, i updated the firmware, but now, the mobile tv(dvb-h) application is gone and when i turn the device on and off, it has a 3 splash screen that wasnt there before. what happened? does any1 have an answer? i dont like the 3 splash screen its rubbish...

Phone User, 14 Jan 2009The only bad things on N96 is the battery cant stand long and Nokia still release 5MP and not ... morethe battery lifetime is the same with N95 if u were using n95 u will discover that there is no diffrence between both in battery lifetime if u want ur battery live longer than the usual stop playing with GPS and the Camera flash then it will survive few more hours
