N96 might not feel good when you 1st hold it in your hand.Coz it's light and built in plastic which made it feel like a toy. When i 1st received my new N96, i feel regret and upset coz it gets hanged when i 1st loading it. I was angry and real disappointed, then i decided to give it another go b4 i return it and it work perfectly, now i had my N96 for nearly 3 weeks and i started to like more and more everyday, i cant say it is the best phone compare to all others phone in the market. But, to me it really is a gd piece of entertainment in my hand. It takes gd pic, play clear movie, gd music, enough internet speed for me, video talking and look quite cool. The only problem is the battery life, not last long enough. For me It did keep me happy wherever i go. Worth it or not is depend on ourself, to me i'm happy with my N96.
Sina, 13 Nov 2008Hi... I have thih phone about 10 days... Free ram is 30 MB, is this normal? Where are other 98... morefrom two n96's i have played around, free ram is around 40mb. yours is pitifully much lesser. n96 has no naviwheel. theres no way to activate that feature becos theres no hardware for that.
Kenzo, 13 Nov 2008Wich specs are u refering 2?....if u refering 2 GSMArenas specs .then u mite be miss informed.... morethe n96 prototypes had a naviwheel hardware. the n96 retail units neither have the hardware nor software for that feature. what nokia was doing between the long months of february to september before releasing this phone was pulling out the naviwheel hardware from all n96 to save some production cost. that's the main reason why n96 took more than half a year to get released since being first announced. ive read from one of the articles in womworld nokia.
I don't think this phone is worth that amount of money and besides de samsung innov8 is way better and cheaper. i have had nokias since i started buying phones. this one really disappoints me

...why does Nokia charge so much for second rate phone from China?
People say the Chinese ones are no good and the ones from Finland are better.
Nokia treat us like dirt.
I suppose it's because people trust them too much.

.i think Nokia puled out the function and the hardware...or just the function....and myt be available in a firmware update.....dose it show on your Instruction manual?....
And about the 128MB SDRAM....reviews say 93MB are avialable aftar cold start... myb the aplication ur using 2 show available ram is faulty.....wich app is that...and chek that all runing programes are closed before you check available ram....
Hi... I have thih phone about 10 days... Free ram is 30 MB, is this normal? Where are other 98 MB of Ram? Free phone memory is 50 MB, I use just 10MB, and phone have 256, is all of used memory for sistem files?
I find in specs "Touch-sensitive Navi wheel"... This function don't work on my phone... Where I can turn on this function?
BATMAN, 13 Nov 2008kenzo aint d n85 suppose 2 b cheaper dats like d same contract as d n96,u work for nokia sa ri... moreYes i am working 4 Nokia.
And yes the N96 is sapos2 be more expensive than the N85....yet MTN tested the N96 4 the passed fewmonths b4 releas ...and they came 2 the conclution that its not worth the price Nokia is asking 4, for it. And MTN will hav aloto problems, so they desided 2 reduce the N96 price on contract and increas the N85's price 2 make up 4 the N96 loss...
But the thing is that the N96 is limited and the N85 is set 4 mass production.....Thats y the N85 is more expensive than the N96
Contact Them agen Boss make them awear that tha'v made you wait so long...throw a tantrim and u will recieve a new phone that was in the same price bracket as ur 6260....read all of thire contracts/terms and conditions coz they not sappos 2 keep ur phone 4 more than a month....and if they realy need 2 keep it due 2 lack of spaire parts then they should hav given you a standbuy phone untill urs is fixed....
lol i 1ce owned a 6260 lol...turned heads while i still had it...:o)

As 4 Nokia-Chinees made models ..the currency in China is low the so is the poverty High...hence low cost labour..that also means the monitoring is also less and the testing a little effecient than Nokia-Finland made....
The distribution from Production factories is divided in regions....Australia lies in the chinees regoin.
The chinees factory is much neerer than the Finland factory...
Bought this phone and using it for already nearly 3 weeks.Previously using N82 and very stable phone.N96 really let me down.It hang and restart and poor battery life.
just buy a garmin its d best if ya realy need a gps plus bigger screen

All these people say "Made in China" is no good, what's with that, THEY ARE DIRECTLY FROM NOKIA.
Why does Nokia send us their rubbish phones?
