when I got the n96 it was vodafone branded and it droce me nuts, they should not do this as it limits the uses abilty to use the full applications in the handset, I unbranded my n96 and it is so much better way better than vodafones sofware crape.
anyways this is a really good phone I whouldnt give it up.

The nokia N73 is the best selling smartphone of all time with over 50 million units sold (as of january 2008). The best selling phone of all time is the nokia 1100 which has sold over 200 million units.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2008Has N96 caught up to iPhone sales?nope, iphone is the fastest selling device of all time, n96 would have to be free on £20 per month tarriffs to even get close.
It's god phon but what about procesor is it lower than n95?plz tel me za difrant.
i'm now using my n96. i've just loaded some 800 songs on it. the sound quality of this phone is awesome. i have my n91 to compare with n96 and i can honestly say n96 is on par with n91 when it comes to sound quality via headphones. this is probably the best music phone so far! i'm more of a music person than a camera person. the quality of pics is very good at least for me. i haven't tested gps yet as i can't get a fix in my current location. dvb-h is not supported by my operator. video playback is very clear. it seems like you're watching dvd on a mini screen. but i've noticed something. i've just installed handy taskman and i checked the free ram and it's 39mb only. is that normal? i haven't encountered any hanging or restarting problems so far. i'll be exploring more of its features later. all i can say for now is that it's really an amazing phone. i don't regret buying it.
Sergio, 18 Nov 2008Hey guys !
I dunno what you talking about i had N95 and upgraded to N96 .
There way more use... moreahh..sounds nice, finally a positive comment once in a while, lol!
how do u know the arm9 is better than arm11? isn't 11 higher?
n96's processor is a dual arm9 264mhz
while n95's a dual arm? or single arm11 333mhz was it? i forgot the number, around there..
anyway, hopefully what you're saying is true in terms of how smooth it is when running the system..
yes, true, some little nice features such as, the kick stand, then the dual led..
ahh also the transfer rate is around 6-8mb/sec now via usb cable data..compare to the old n95 8gb that's only friggin' 800kb/sec =( it's killing me, takes ages!
Hey guys !
I dunno what you talking about i had N95 and upgraded to N96 .
There way more useful option in N96 + performance is better because it uses ARM9 and not ARM 11 like N95 .
So even it has not that hi frequency but performance still higher because of the platform .
There no any issues with memory also i have 13GB used now and all works fast and perfect .
There still some issues with software that you can fix with firmware updates .
Camera in N95 and N96 is the same module plus here they got DSP that gives you better video decoding and encoding performance and adds extra bat. life .
From my point of view N96 is really good upgrade option better then N95 8G because you've got 16GB of memory plus microSD slot that support sdHC .
Plus better sound quality and many other features .
hello! i'm a former nokia n82 user and i've just got myself a new nokia n96. i've got it for aed 3,050 or roughly around php 37,000. i was supposed to get the nokia n85 but i ended up getting the n96 instead. i haven't explored all its features yet as i'm currently charging it right now. i'll be posting my review when i get done.

BATMAN, 18 Nov 2008hell bra i use voda plz temme abt your fone and ur views on nokia n96 and n85..........which 1 wud u prefer???and y?
hey guys....what do u feel abt d nokia n85???isn't it a good competitor 4r this one???well....if ya consider all the features....u wud find that the n85 is dominant ovr n96....like the battery standby time....surplus features like OLED display....NGAGE gaming option...and camera protection...so wich 1 to go with???plz comment....
this is all i can say about nokia n96.the processor really is bad!!!the battery i dont have problems with it coz i have this energizer battery pack power supply which i can use anytime the battery gets low and i got an extra bl5f battery i got when i used to have N95.they shouldnt have supplied the n96 with a massive memory and some features like the accelarator sensor for auto rotate and some graphics which is an supposedly and improvement.but with that slow processor?tsk tsk tsk!
they shouldve stucked to that 330mgz speed like my E90 and my former N95 which has faster cpu even if it compromises the battery life coz you still have an option to buy an extended one or a power supply.what where they thinking when they made this unit?i know why they wanted to lower the cpu but they shouldve thought about the load it will take when they put it with a mssive memory.but one thing i like about this is the dvb-h tv reciever.i really loved it!coz it has better reception now than the N92 or the N77 and it doesnt hang when you watch longer...i hope...
i have this unit for two days now and ive upgraded the version to 11.101 hoping that it will do some good with the speed even to the point of defragmenting the mass memory and formatting it,which i regretted coz it deleted some pre loaded applications but who knows i thought that maybe one of those might have a bug thats why it is slow,but still it was still in vain!anyways ill stick to this until they come up with a better upgrade on the os which i did with my other units which gave some good performances as ive observed.anyways goodluck to those who buy this.its not a negative comment just spend your money wisely.and to nokia...pls your supporters for N96 needs your help on this problem.hope you could fix it coz it really is an expensive unit.thats all for now.thank you much!
1-The DVB-H TV of N96 work free and properly in some world city like Tehran(Iran)all over Italy,3cities of France &...
2-Battery life working isn't much enough!!
3-The GPS reciver working very good(more than better than car or portable GPS-reciver)it can find satelite from of hollow concerete floor.
