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.........

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

Nokia N96 103 x 55 x 18 mm
As you can see the Samsung is 3.5mm longer.
The Nokia is 1.1mm Wider and 0.8 mm thicker.
The Nokia would be harder to fit in a pocket.

The Truth, 14 Nov 2008This phone has been the most unfairly criticize phone in the web. Unfairly critisize in a way ... moreOh yeah, I forgot the optical trackpad on the Samsung Innov8 which does the job a naviwheel would have done on the N96
The Truth, 14 Nov 2008This phone has been the most unfairly criticize phone in the web. Unfairly critisize in a way ... more1. Battery Life - fanboys from other company criticize this because it only carries 950 mAh, what they didnt know about was that this battery can stand all the power needs on the phone in a day or two becasue of the hardware used that minimize battery consumption.
Samsung Innov8 1200 mAh, uses it on more powerful processor, dedicated 3D graphics acceleration, DSE sound chip and faster 3G speeds.
2. N96 has the best hardware for decoding movies, music and videos thus it gives users the best experience in watching or listening experience. This actually have an effect on power consumption thus extended power while watching videos or listening to music.
Samsung Innov8 DivX/H.263/H.264/WMV/MP4 player, MP3/eAAC+/WMA/AMR/RealAudio player
Does N96 support all these or do you have to install add-ons?
Samsung Innov8 dedicated audio and graphics processors.
Nokia N96 none.
Now how can a phone without these things be better?
It's like saying that a car with no engine is faster than one that has one.
3. Their are some features of the phone that where power hungry like the GPS and Wifi but this normally does eats up power which ever device you used. Laptop for example, internet browsing also eats up energy in those devices.
4. If you try to write every advantages or improvements of N96 over N95 or the competing brands, you can actually see that N96 produce a long list to advantages.
The Innov8 sets new standards, not carries on with old ones.
Yes, having Nokia painted on the plastic must make it faster despite all the hardware disadvantages, is that like red cars go faster?
"However, you won't get the same astonishing sound quality or camera as with the i8510, so once again, the N96 is a sensible choice only if you really fancy Nokia-branded phones - on all other fronts it falls flat when compared to the Samsung INNOV8"
Besides all this Nokia sell Australia cheap Chinese made one's and keep the better made Finnish one's for other countries.
