I waited 6 months for this set, good one replaced with N-95 8GB, functions are almost same, but this is little cheap model where you compare this to N-95 craftmanship and every part fixed in it shounds cheap, so 1st time leaving Nokia and will go to Sony 905 or ?.

i think our pricing on contract is resonable...coz the N85 is a little more expensive than the N96....and the N96 costs R8616 on a 24month contract....(R209+R359x24+R8)
they rediced the price as compaired 2 wat nokia was asking 4...4 the N96
Yes the N96 myt crash when loading it with 10GB or more of data but so did The N95-1 when it had 2GB-4GB in it.....
As 4 the i8510 hehehehe people are complaining about its battery life it draines in less than a day and countless other problems...
The N96 just needs a firmware up date thats all then all then most if not all the buggs will be fixed.........
N85 is (R209+R459x24+R8)
ass u can see the N85 is more expensive than N96
BATMAN , 15 Nov 2008almost every fone dat cums out nowdays people r complainin abt itthe complaints of pipol regarding this so called N96 are just reasonable.
1.battery life - all recent nokia phones are equipped with large batteries. why is not n96?
2.super buggy software - n96 took at least 7 months from official announcement to official release and the firmware that comes with this phone is so buggy. what was nokia doing during that long period of time?
3.no naviwheel - this may not be a deal breaker for some but the n96 prototypes had naviwheel. so why on earth do n96 commercial units not have a naviwheel?
4.overpriced - this phone is overpriced considering its low quality materials and low build quality, and the very few improvements it has over its predecessor.
nokia has a great job of n96
i only like nokia in all of brands
24 gb of memory its great job
sumsong i8510 is havey and trying to copy nokia
BATMAN, 14 Nov 2008cn d n96 take dat 16gig cardthe is already slow, but it starts to get much slower once you fill its flash drive with 7gb data. if you continue on filling it with more data, it will crash. so even if n96 has 16gb internal memory, you won't be able to fill it with 16gb data because it will crash.
Kenzo, 14 Nov 2008No its not!

So people are paying a premium price for an experimental phone which Nokia push as a "flagship".
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2008So the N96 is made from recycled junk, yet you pay full new phone price???
Flagship?No its not!
The N96 was set 2 be the N95 in the 1st place but they ran in2 some issuse with the production so they made the N95 as wee knw it....go2 symbianfreeks.com and u will fynd this article....hence i say the N96 is three years old.....'in concept'
i8510 has some problems of its own....
So did the N95 in its tym....wat Nokia is trying 2 do is maximize on hardware effeciency with minimal power usages....at the same tym having many features as possable....then they would hav mastard the art....
Coz wat the i8510 is now...is wat the N95 was in its tym....yet the N95 was more of an innovation than the i8510.....the i8510 is just pasing the same road the N95 did yet with a beater engine.

SYmbian is a good operating system..... thats what makes the Innov8 stand out among the rest. .. Imagine.... The best mobile phone software (symbian) combined with the best mobile hardware known for its superior quality... = samsung Innov8.........
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Pants with short, fat, wide pockets?
For a short, fat, wide N96.
N85 103 x 50 x 16 mm.
Hey it has a navi wheel, similar to the Samsung's Optical trackpad, only got 5 Megapixel camera, smaller screen and slower processor.
Humza, 14 Nov 2008Fat Phone, Buy N85 instead. It the same thing but skinner. yeah n85 is lukin d best option at d moment wud d battery life mainly
BATMAN, 14 Nov 20083.5mm longer hmm gota hav deep pockets thenNokia is fatter and wider, what are you still wearing cargo pants?
