I Bought N96 a week ago. Camera is okay but not really great compared to N95. Speaker is okay but N95 has louder speaker. Naviwheel is not working. My unit restarted itself about 5 times already since I've bought it. Battery is not good. But music quality through headphones is good, a lot better than N95. I just noticed that my unit is getting slower and slower in performing operations. I just formatted the internal memory. I restore it to default factory settings. I uploaded 7Gb data on the mass memory and it got slow. I think the processor can't handle a lot of data in the mass memory. Wifi is also very weak. I think there are so many bugs in the current firmware. Right now, I'm not really happy with it. I hope Nokia will fix all the bugs soon to make this phone good.

Anonymous, 02 Nov 2008n92 was also sold on earth and so was n77. but they did not sell well. the main novelty of n96... moreYou make valid points......and all uv mentioned is wat i need great camera, Super sonic music expirience, outstanding picture/video clearity, GPS etc.....basically i want the N95 8GB....yet i dont like the memory limitation it comes with.....i had planed 2 purchase it...yet im a multimedia freak....and need all my vidoes movies and music on the gO.....and besides the DVB-H function in South Africa is free at the moment.....so i think the N96 would be the best value 4 me....coz i havnt owned an N95....
The Build Quality of the N95 8GB is superb in my Books.....the only reson i didnt get the it was the little 8GB it comes with.....oh well il just hav 2 get a hands on expirience 2 deside.....

Anonymous, 01 Nov 2008Can someone please tell me to use DVB-H if a tv sim is needed in South Africa.Yes A special sim is needed wich is called the USIM.......
What is a USIM?
In order to continue receiving the DVB-H trial signal, you will need to swap your current SIM card for a new USIM. A USIM will be provided free of charge to all trial recipients of the Sagem myMobileTV handset or you may Purchase one from MTN service stores near you.
USIM stands for Universal Subscriber Identity Module. A USIM looks exactly like a SIM and identifies a subscriber to the network in exactly the same way as a SIM does. However, a USIM has a higher data storage capacity and is better suited to more sophisticated mobile applications, such as DVB-H and 3G. In the DVB-H environment a USIM operates in much the same way as a DStv smartcard does in your decoder or PVR.
I dont knw how u get the Vodacom USIM ...im on MTN and planing 2 Get THe N96 next month
