So many negative reviews about this phone. Nothing good?
Are u guys sure u bought the real nokia n96 and not an immitation from china?
Is the phone that bad?
Well am done with phones, getting a new laptop.
i bought this phone when immediately it was available expecting to be a better n95 8gb
immediately i was surprised by the catastrophic design and software bugs
after one week i bring to nokia service
they kept the phone 5 - 6 weeks !
they did absolutely nothing
so i destroyed and trashed this n96
i am using now a LG viewty and it is good to jump from prehistoric nokia phones to actual phones !
never more nokia
i've never known Such a failure before with mobile phones that Cost a fortune, it's a disgrace welcome to the crazy generation of stupidass mobile phones, that are meant to be the best phones around but they fail more then ever Greed
I saw a N96 yesterday! next to a C905 and Samsung INNOV8(8GB)
N96 is the WIDEST out of them, and seems the biggest!
But it has a 16GB memory! Wow...thats the best bit!!!!!

Anonymous, 01 Dec 2008Are you actually naive enough to think that Nokia manufacture their own components? Here's ... morehey im not here to argue or to show that i have better knowledge in this techno gizmo world we live in.this is not about who is higher in learning when it comes to this issue.i was just giving out tips to those who could have bought imitations whether its nokia or whatever unit they might have bought.coz where i am there are lots of imitations that are coming from china and you can see them being sold on the streets and theyre really an exact replica of what theyre trying to copy.if consumers really are not keen enough to what they are buying they might be victimized by this fraudulent people who makes this exact copy or imitation.i have just given an insight and a warning to this people who are not aware by this that there really are copies out there and they exist.this is not concerning whether i am naive or im ignorant or im good at this coz i have lots to say and knows about the ins and outs of the mobile technology this concerns about consumers who should be wary about what they buy.i know you are sure about what you are saying and that website that you have just given and i respect that but maybe what we really should do is to help this people or supposedly consumers and lead them to the right way on what to buy with their hard earned money.in this crisis we are experiencing right now im sure a php 30,000(i just dont know how much is that in other currencies but im sure it really is expensive!!!)is not an easy thing to let go.mind you this is a forum and not a court where you can just hand out evidences to back your arguements.im just here to help consumers out with what they should do and buy.and for that i thank you!
tranny, 01 Dec 2008hey guys the only thing you could do to check that if your unit is genuine and not a grey unit... moreAre you actually naive enough to think that Nokia manufacture their own components?
Here's an example:-
hey guys the only thing you could do to check that if your unit is genuine and not a grey unit is to check the battery compartment and see if theres a nokia seal and you could also check the box if it has a seal of warranty for 12 months for nokia careline.there are china made nokia fones meaning it was assembled in china but the the pieces and chips they used are from finland meaning the ones thats been assembled in china are meant for asian countries.they have the same quality and performance.and you can see that if your got a nokia fone thats made in china if it has like two simcard readers it means thats an imitation and you can also type *#0000# and if it doesnt appear that firmware version or any indications about your unit that means its also a fake.be wary of imitations coz it only doesnt imatate nokia they also imitate other brands.like samsung sonyericsson lg and some other brands.
brynn, 01 Dec 2008You cannot go wrong with n85 and as said below n958gb but i got rid of n958gb for a few good r... morethank you brynn for the replay.i had the n 958g music but it's camera was not that good the flash was really bad so the pics would be dark, and it weight is heavy so i change it. now i saw the n96 is really lighter then n958gb. but i think the flash is better, now i really dont know which to buy????????
Kristijan Mrkic, 01 Dec 2008On n96 you can put folders with music and pictures and organize it on albums and playlists in ... moreis it good to have n96??what is it weakness??please tell me...coz I having problem to choose between n85 or n96...please tell me...
Raj, 01 Dec 2008All I can say is that My friends and I got N96 and these phones are "Made In Finland" and they... moreThe one's Made in China are also Nokia originals, the retail price is $1149, it depends which zone your country is in.
So are you saying Nokia gives customers in different countries different quality phones?
No wonder so many of them come back.
Everyone of these I've dealt with has come back... Even one of the replacement ones came back...
my uncle is gonna buy me a phone for christmas....should i ask for a n85 or n96...im not paying for it so price is not a issue.....so n96 or 85??...thanks
All I can say is that My friends and I got N96 and these phones are "Made In Finland" and they dont have any problems at all!!! If you guys check this site (www.dhgate.com) and look up for N96, this phone is less than $100 and that is a fake phone. However, you will get all the apps, exact same shape,everything same but U'll have problems with them. But the phones that are made in finland are originals.
samsung innov8 is crap! it looks like a pentium 1 with a 2 colour menu. atleast the n96 has colour and style, something samsung will never have!!
I just got my N96 today and I havent had a new mobile for a while...how long should I do my first battery charge for?
sandeep, 28 Nov 2008Please can anyone suggest me whisc one to buy....is it N85 or N96???On n96 you can put folders with music and pictures and organize it on albums and playlists in a second. On n95 both models, you must put files one by one and then organize it. I spend 2 hours to organize 150 songs on n95 8 gb and only 1 hour for 1000 mp3 on n96...
If you will put picures, movies and music on then THE ANSWER IS N96 I have n95 8gb 1 year and n96 3 months. for any question my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
farah, 30 Nov 2008hi guys.... I would like to buy N96 but am confeused should i buy N96 or N85???? can anyone he... moreYou cannot go wrong with n85 and as said below n958gb but i got rid of n958gb for a few good reasons but to buy this n96 will not bring you happiness..In all my mags and reviews this is worse than original n95 with poor battery and that is really depressing from my own personnel use and quick sale of n95 original..Most quotes are 2.hrs tops of talktime and to me thats the figure that counts,,even if its got this super duper low voltage use in music/videos if you start calling/txting and heaven forbid wi-fi and hsdpa that battery is going to deplete in 2.hrs period.I never would buy a fone under 4hs talktime minimum cause if you half use the the fone it will last 8hrs just enuf for the day but thats nokia only and cannot comment on other makes talktimes cause have no real life experiance
you're better off with a cheap phone instead at least the battery lasts longer this phones a nightmare
