Do you know if and when they will come up with a better battery for N96 ???? It is the worst , if you strat to use GPS or play music or games it doesn't last more than two hours max
For a phone with so many functions ( music , video, gps , games ) the battery should last longer

I have recently purchased the N96 on contract and overall i find this is a good phone, it does have its bad points tho i have found the auto rotate function a bit slow an sometimes freezes and can get quite anoying, also when replying to a message the message box will also take a while to open. Good points are the screen and sound quality. I mean all together im not quite satisfied with this phone but like to stick with nokia. and currently waiting for the 5800 xpress music

Guys i do have an N95 8G i bought it since September 2007, I use it for almost a year when I heard of N96 and it is released this in the market I bought on the first day, i thought it was a great phone but!!!!!!!!!!!!!i was not happy with the performance and the feature of this phone.....
some defect was on the : battery
: Navigation is not perfect
I was so disappointed so I went back to the store ask them to change the unit, luckily they granted my request, but the problem still occur so Guys it's better to buy N95 8G. To much disappointment I sold my N96 at only 100$.
Standard battery, Li-Ion 950 mAh (BL-5F) :(
Why not 1500 or 1200 mAh. Watching TV 1-2 hour --> battery low ? :(
Had it 2 days, already had a replacement but got same problem, The backlight stays on for around 30 seconds then goes off and the only way to get in back on is to go into settings and set the brightness again. Then garanteed when are sending a text or on the menu and stop to talk and when using bluetooth the light goes off.
Any ideas why this is??
nokia is from finland. samsung is from south korea. sony ericsson is from sweden and japan. motorola is from the united states of america. lg is also from south korea. apple is from the united states of america as well. among all the countries listed above, south korea is the best when it comes to electronics. samsung and lg are not just focused only in mobile phones but in other electrinic gadgets and appliances as well. and samsung goes to the extremes. they make their own hardware also. nokia is just good in mobile phone assembly. they don't make their hardware. they buy it from other companies. but they make their own software.
My n96 freezes once it goes into screen saver mode and starts working only when I remove the battery and put it back.Could there be a seroius problem?
