This is the worst phone ever made by Nokia!!!!!
My brother was a big Nokia fan until he bought it. He is not a fan anymore. He smashed this phone to the wall, because the phones is EXTREAMLY slow, lagging and annoying. If you want yourself a heart attack from the constant nervousness this phone is coursing than buy it.
Nokia was a good manufacturer, but now it is a joke. This is their high-end device. You could buy better than this is the local Chinese shop.
the camera is not as good as sony erricson C905. the phones operating system gets slow sometimes n i dunno y.
ahhh guys for my question is actually funny for me coz this one is about the sensor of the unit ok i'll start. From the time i have my N96 i bought casing for it and i noticed that everytime i put inside my phone inside the casing my fone is being unlocked i don't know why, is it having a reaction about magnet coz the casing i bought the lock for it is magnet.
Any answer would be appreciated. Thanks

TCOMTECK, 31 Dec 2008Very POOOOOOOOOOR battery (950 mA) 2days, even only one day, I relace it with BL-6L 1200mA of ... moreYeah but if you replace it with the N95 8gig battery which is what I attempted to do, the back of the phone doesn't close properly - or has anyone managed to close the back of N96 with an N95 8 gig battery properly?
Why is this battery soooooooooo poor? I love this phone but I think I will part ways unless one of you geniuses can pull a rabbit out of hat and suggest a solution that will prevent me from getting rid of the phone.
nokia n96 is the best sound quality phone in the world created for lovers of best sound quality like cowon d2 or cowon s9
I have had this phone (unlocked) for nearly a week. I love the phone except for the poor battery. When the Nokia 5800 Tube is widely available, I'll get it. My battery is a BL 5F made is China. Is there another battery I can use for this phone that will last much longer? If so, please give the number. I've tried my N95 8 gig battery. It fits but the back wont close which is a shame. Is everybody having problems with their batteries? If not, what battery are you using. I am on the verge of changing this phone as I am completely frustrated. I had a Nokia N95 8gig before and the batter on this was tremendous so why have Nokia become losers providing us with cheap batteries that barely last a day? I don't make many calls or send out text messages but still my battery is poor?
What does it mean for a phone to hang? Does that simply mean it freezes?
wanting a new phone , nokia n96 or lg renoir or is there a better phone out there.
I love Nokia as they produce the best phones but this phone AVOID it. Why? Everything is perfect with it except for the poor battery which requires charging on a daily basis. Go for the Nokia N85 or the Nokia N79. Both have better batteries. One is a slide, the other is a candy bar. Read the reviews. I've had mine for about 5 days but will change it for a Nokia N85 or N79. This battery nonsense must stop. Nokia are well known for having an immortal battery but they fall well short. Numerous other owners of the N96 are complaining too. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!
Esse N96 é uma enganação, acabamento péssimo e frágil, alto consumo de bateria, sinceramente é um investimento perdido, o N97 também deverá ser o mesmo fracasso.a Nokia nunca terá um celular top de linha, porque.
Não comprem N96 nem seus sucessores. é um lixo.
Very POOOOOOOOOOR battery (950 mA) 2days, even only one day, I relace it with BL-6L 1200mA of Nokia N95 8GB;
