pappy is that you, the n91 guru? i know that code belongs to pappy. have you switched to n96 already?
i'm using a pair of good shure earphones. n96 has 8-band equalizer. sound quality is the same as n91. i just can't fault the n96 when it comes to sound quality. volume is a little bit softer than n91 but i like it that way since i don't really listen to music in full blast volume. multitasking is okay. i can open 8 in-device applications all at the same time with no problems. i haven't installed any heavy running applications yet to test how it can handle multitasking. if you're into music, you'll love this phone.
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2008Too bad it doesn't have a dedicated sound chip like the Samsung Innov8.
Now that's what I c... moreWat you talking about inno inno?.....i didnt even ask you ...if i was interested in the so called "innov8" i would be in there blog....but No...im not coz it lacks a lota necessary things 4 it 2 be a multimedia device...
1. No Dedicated Music Keys
(N96's got 2 sets of them...mayb it should share 1 set 2 the i8510 hehehehehehehehe).
2. the 3.5mm audio jack on the top of the Media device 4 Beta landscape viewing
3.Stereo saround speakers on the Right side 4 beta 3D saround sound effect in landscape mode.
4.The video kick stand.....4 beta free hand viewming.
5.The keypad lock switch.
6.The New Dedicated Sound Processor(You carrort dont you knw the N96 has 1 to, next tym get ur facts straight be4 posting irelevent comments about other product on a post!)
The i8510 my theoreticaly produce great sound but ass u can see it lacks all the necessary features 2 make it a Multimedia device....
As the veterans say "its the little things that count"....
So pleas go 2 Samsung post and stay there 4 gOoooD!
Hi. Cud anyone tell me if n96 is louder than 6210navigator? I read at smape.com that the navigator has the same sound quality as n81. Plus i hear n96 is as loud as n81, but distorts a bit at the highest volume.

n96 doesnt need a dedicated audio cheap because it already had a powerful audio cheap from nokia
and besides n96 only have the best video cheap in the mobile world.
audio + video + dvb-h = best entertainment package in the mobile world

So which pair of headphones preferably OVer ear style would you use with your N96
Im thinking of geting 2 pairs 1:Nokia BH 604
and 2: The Sennheiser HD 595 or HD 555 will the N96 be able 2 handle thes 2 coz they both hav an impidence of 50 ohms?
Sound quality of N96 is better then N91, however it is not as loud b/c of those stupid limitations :(

The Nokia N96 is a great phone, no doubting that. It can give the iPhone a run for its money any day. Some people will prefer the touch screen on the iPhone, but the N96 performs better all round. Only downside is it weighs a bit more, but that's a same price to pay for a superior phone. What's more, the phone isn't tied to one network!

from first day i'm using it, here's my take about the battery:
after initially charging it for 10 hours, the first thing i did was i browsed the menu, configured all the settings, familiarized the ui for about 30 minutes, i took some pictures and shot some vids for around 30 minutes, watched some videos i shot and some preloaded videos for around 20 minutes, , i played some music for about 2 hours (alternately in earphones and speakers), tested gps (not working in my current location), browsed and chatted on wap (gsm mode) for about 1 hour, and the battery is finally empty.
the battery life, considering its not so gracious capacity, isn't bad at all. i was heavy on its features and it lasted me almost a day from initial charge. from what i know, the battery life will increase after some complete charging and discharging cycles. so battery is pretty good with this phone.
here's the rest of my review:
it's fingerprint magnet. very easy to type on its keypad. there's no getting used to as i got easily comfortable with it. design is very nice. it's a little bit wide but it's an eye candy. screen is big and bright. the ui is fast, no lagging problems. but i encountered some problems when my phone froze during web browsing. i had to take the battery off and turn it on again. i haven't used gps yet as i can't make it work. there must be a problem with my location. dvb-h is not supported by my network operator. pics are very good in normal lighting. video is a little blurry. sound quality via 3.5 mm jack is excellent. it's on the same level as n91. this phone is really amazing! it's the best phone i've ever had.
