n96 really is very power efficient. even though it's only eqquipped with 950mah battery, its processor and software is very much optimised in power efficiency so you can enjoy up to 18 hours of nonstop music playback, up to 6 hours of video playback, up to 6 hours of gaming on n96. however, in performing telephony functions, those that involve data transfer such as calling & texting, web browsing, downloading, gps navigation, and dvb-h broadcast, battery life is greatly reduced. battery is enough in audio and video playback, as well as gaming, but insufficient in anything that involves radio waves transmission.
Dani, 05 Nov 2008Why is everyone so negative about it ? N96 - Best all-round-device just 'All-Round'very easy to answer, they never used this phone
umair, 05 Nov 2008veryyyy veryyyyyyy veryyyyyyyyyyyyy ppoooooooor battery life i think n95 8gb wayyyyyyy better u have a television in ur hand man, and with all the monster features? wat can u expect?
i owned an n92 and n77 b4 en the battery life is poor as well...watching tv on ur fone would really eat up the battery life...based on my expirience.

Anonymous, 05 Nov 2008yes , it canBecause i was curious that gsmarena spec. was listed supported upto 8GB... Does the sdhc count on classes like 2 /or/ 4?
Have you tried putting an 16GB SDHC Class#? in the N96? it works perfectly correct me in mind.
Just want to make the N96 like an ipod haha 32GB's total. (mass media + sd cards)
love it but battery is not good and it freezes probably 2 times per day,,,,,,,,,,,but i love it mint phone.i had the n95 8g and the old battery fits just about........sound phone v nice
Why is everyone so negative about it ?
N96 - Best all-round-device
curious that if this N96 can suppose 16GB SDHC? b/c i seen forums that it can suppose total of 32GB's Incld the mass hd and sdhc.. help??!
Its an N95 with an N81 case. Same crap screen, same crap OS, same crap user interface, same crap battery life, same crap camera. Double the price. Might as well get the N85 which has the same spec but double the battery life and an OLED screen. Nokia make no sense whatsoever, idiots.
Ashik, 05 Nov 2008It's a great sell phone!!!!!!!!!! All it really needs is an 8 megapixel camera and it'd be up with the best.
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2008Ericsson released the first Symbian phone, so they must be better than Nokia then.It's a great sell phone!!!!!!!!!!
Superb phone....I have read allot of the comments on here which have been negative, but i must say even tho the processor has been downgraded...it still runs as smooth as the n95, i have had both the N95 and N95 8gb and now going to the N96 seeing that it has 16gb of memory, all i can say is that its is handling much better than i expected. Camera is great so many features that i havent had a chance to try yet. I have had been testing it for a week now, and i have not experienced any freezing, or restarts. Plastic does seem cheap, but looks awesome once you see it in person. Battery lasted me 2 days with moderate usage. What can i say if you dont like it dont buy it,if you want it its your choice to go for it. I got it for $850 AUS. Overall id rate it a 9 out of 10. I really had doubts about this phone but now i can honestly say i love it.
Dj Kur (London), 05 Nov 2008Dude, honestly, it's a piece of sh*t. Obviously it depends what you wanna use it for. I reckon... moreI feel u dude.....if the N96's build quality.....is any like or better than the N81 then i myt buy it......but if its less i doubt il purchase it....
eish i wish i could get a N95-2 8GB with memory card slot......or mayb even expand the internal memory by puting a 16 GB...chip.....i dnt knw if thats possable....
i realy love the N95 8GB.....yet 8GB...is 2 little 4 me......
besides DVB-H TV is free here in South Africa....so its 1 + 4 the N96...
im just waiting 4 a hands on expirience....
