iolo003, 07 Nov 2008wrong, N96 was not overhype, its underated by haters in this page.
besides N96 is marketed ... moreIt's not by haters that you get this kind of bad comments. The N95 was a great phone, but they've tried to bring out an even better one. Well they didn't. I work in this business, and i'm not found of this phone! It is accually overated, and it's not overhyped. They tried to bring out a similiar phone like the N95 but with an other design and much more functions.
Too bad that didn't really work out.
It's not a bad phone, but you can find lots of cheaper phones that are better than the N96...
What were they thinking when they made this phone???
That's big question everyone is asking themselves. The phone is almost bigger than a PDA! And that's not a great thing. The functions are good, ok no negative points there. But the design sucks, the keys suck, and lots of other stuff that are just crap!
This phone was a big ZERO for nokia... :(
the N96is crap i have had it 2 weeks and all it does is frezze and turn its self off even the ring tones dont even work when someone calls stay away from n series .

besides N96 is marketed on a different segment, TV and Video while innov8 on 8MP.. it just so happend that N96 targeted a wider consumer, people who likes TV and Video more than camera so it gain more attention than innov8. Sorry but the battle between the two was history already and N96 won by mile.
The next battle, 5800 XpressMusic VS the rest of touch devices. Its now a revelation that 5800 made a stirr all over the mobile world. Will it transform and outsold every touch devices in the market, my prediction, YES, it can even outsold all the sales of other touch devices combined.
OMG! this phone is SO MUCH OVERHYPED. it's overhyped simply because of its name, "N96", just like why iPhone is overhyped because of its name! and it's oh so super expensive, 900 dollars for NOT the best mobile phone! i'd rather spend 1,000 dollars for the best mobile phone, INNOV8, than 900 dollars for the not-even-good N96! it's a waste of money! every site i come across is proclaiming, "Samsung INNOV8 is currently the best all-round multimedia device!" and this "N96 is the most overhyped!"
I had this phone a week ago,im so disappointed coz always freezing now and then,dont buy this crap n96
same old software problems .. freezing crashing switching off between calls dropping calls ... nokia has lost it... stay away from N series guys..
working for the carphone warehouse we handle many different phones coming in for repair... the nokia n96 has had more returns with faults than we sell ... my vote goes to the iphone ... we haven't seen one faulty iphone apart from customers cracking there screens .

That will come with the "i" model...
i will cast my vote for n96:
design: 4/10, very dull bulky and wide!
features: 2/10, it could've been a great device if it was released 2 years ago. it is just basically a n95 plus 16gb & dvb-h, nothing more!
performance: 1/10, all other recent nseries phones have large battery capacity, naviwheel & fm transmitter, and n96 doesn't have those. it's the buggiest nseries phone ever! and it's also the most expensive. is there any other nseries phone that can be worse than this?
n96 is buggiest s60 phone to date! the naviwheel which was working on the n96 prototypes was taken out of the n96's hardware! it's confirmed. n96 commercial units don't have a naviwheel. this phone is such a waste of money! nokia didn't even care to put at least a decent battery for this phone yet it costs 900 dollars! this phone is a disaster!
This would have been a phone with the lot if it only had Infrared!!

Yeah I agree with you mate. There prices are too high. I mean come off it, who is going to pay £420 odd to for a Pay as you Go??
I used to be a big spender but the only person losing the money is me and the only people laughing are the people making money!!
