Anonymous, 29 Nov 2008That's coz you have time to charge it all the time , the battery sucks and that is a facti think you need to be sensible in your comment. N96's battery is not as bad as you think, it might be smaller than other NSeries phone but its justifiable enough to last a day or two depending on ur usage
if u are to use it on a normal basis, call or tex, listen to music or watch video, u wil notice that the battery last longer than any other phone, n96 has a special chip use for decoding music and video thus making it less power consuming
if you are to use n96 for internet via wifi or 3G expect a shorter battery life just like any other device like laptop that last only for 2 hours if used, etc.
Now the question is: are they gonna make a new battery to keep up with the functions , or is another battery available to replace??
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2008Very bad battery i've charged 3x a day in heavy usedsame here , charge it every two days , even if is just standby
N96 SQ is comparable with n81/n85..i mean bass will start n deep sharp at 70% volume without distortion n crack noise..different with walkman megabas which bass start at low volume..but megabass will have great distortion,crackling,noisy which makes sq fall down at max volume n nokia bass still sharp n deeper,,different case,samsung i8510 doesn't have great n deeper bass coz low output power amp but i8510 offer crystal clear sq even u can hear every instruments in your song clearly with wide impedance specs headphon like senn cx300,its not boombass but crystal clear experience sq,,but volume too low compared with n96 n walkman
ionutdrg, 28 Nov 2008Please can anyone suggest me whisc one to buy....is it N95-8GB or N96???I don't know about the N95 but I have the 96 and the only thing I hate about it is that you have to charge it every two days , and that is if you don't use the functions , I would suggest to go for a phone that has a lot of talk time ( Samsung Omnia)i think is grate

ionutdrg, 28 Nov 2008Please can anyone suggest me whisc one to buy....is it N95-8GB or N96???for sure N96, difficult to understand you still consider the old N95. N96 is already a very good mobile, and just wait a few firmware updates to have a fantastic mobile.
I ordered mine and cant wait to get my hands on it! Awesome looking phone and features! Just damn too expensive pre-paid so im taking out on contract!

Please can anyone suggest me whisc one to buy....is it N95-8GB or N96???
Nokia's phone which use BL-5F usually not too reliable and mainly face battery usage shortage problem.
sandeep, 28 Nov 2008Please can anyone suggest me whisc one to buy....is it N85 or N96???Brother, I Think N85 and N96 is not good. If you want to buy a good phone so you can buy N95 8GB, it is good phone. Thank you.
My opinion is N96 is not good phone, because its bettery talk time is only 3.5 hours. If the talk time is less at least 8 hours of any phone I think that phone is not good.
sandeep, 28 Nov 2008Please can anyone suggest me whisc one to buy....is it N85 or N96???depends, if you want to use it for business, buy 96
if only for common use, 85 will be fine as well
I Have had the N96 for 2 weeks now.
I love the look of the phone & everything it does.
Am quite happy for it execpt for the following:
The battery doesnt last long at all.
Am charging it every night.
Secondly & most importantly, the PHONE FREEZES.
It happens every second day. It even happens when someone is calling me & therefore I cannot answer the phone.
The only way to fix it is to turn it off & then switch it back on again. Very annoying!
Also, its quite slow to scroll through the menu.
If anyone knows how to fix any of the above, please let me know!!
Hope this review helps.
