I loved my N95 though it wasn't perfect and in fact its screen stopped working after about 17 months of owning it. I hated Nokia Maps but loved using Tom Tom mobile with external GPS receiver when driving as that was so much faster and better than Nokia Maps. I upgraded to the N96 2 weeks ago and after having it for a week I was absolutely disgusted with it. The minute you open it to stick the SIM and battery in, you're faced with that horrible little, flimsy piece of sh*t plastic cover, and it immediately feels cheap. It didn't seem to do anything better than the N95 while the downgraded CPU is useless for Tom Tom. When installed on the N96, Tom Tom is a million times slower than it ever was on the N95 to the point of being unworkable, and won't ever work for more than a couple of minutes on the N96 before it crashes. All that with the latest FW. After that week I took the N96 back to the Carphone Warehouse in London and got an Iphone instead. Sure, the camera on that is no match for that of the N95 or N96 but even so, the Iphone completely rapes the N96. After owning most of Nokia's flagship phones over the years, I take the N96 as a complete insult. This is something that could and should have been so much better and advanced than the N95, and instead it's a sorry excuse for a septic tank of a smart phone. Don't bother with it. If you're expecting it to be better than the N95, you'll be as greatly disappointed as I am. Two questions to Nokia: 1)What the f*ck?
2)Where did it all go so horribly wrong?
As far as I'm concerned Nokia have a stupidly long way to go to redeem themselves after making me wait for this piece of sh*t since last winter! What an absolute shocker!

Why do you have to turn functions off to make the phone work properly?
What's the point of having them in the first place?

Cute Guy, 30 Oct 2008Again, let us make this as simple as possible because samsung fanboys cannot get my point. ... more16GB and DVB-H did not make N96 any better than N95 8Gb. N95 8Gb has larger camera lens, 3D graphics engine, dual TIOMAP 2420 CPU, 1200mah battery which N96 doesn't have. And INNOV8 has everything that N96 and N95 8Gb have except the fancy DVB-H chip. There is no such thing as Samsung fanboys. If there are INNOV8 fans, it is because INNOV8 is just too impressive device that even a Nokia fanatic like me is loving it. It takes so much Nokia fanboyism to appreciate N96 because even mobile phone review sites have already been disappointed with this phone. Do you know the story why N96 in this age and time was equipped with an old aged battery of N95 whereas all other latest Nokia phones are equipped with a whopping 1200mah battery? Even N82 and N81 have newer battery than N96. It is because when the time the hardware of N96 was being made by designers and engineers, there was no 1200mah battery available yet. What does that mean? N96 was created prior to N95 8Gb. It took 2 years for N96's development to be finished. This story is in one of mobile-review.com articles. That's why I just laugh at people who buy this phone. These people are so shallow. Haha! Good luck with your ageing N96. Hope you won't regret buying it when the next best thing arrives soon. Haha!

I can do anything on all the Nokia mentioned that you can do with your innov8 and I have enjoyed several bonus together with it.
Such a sweet deal for smart consumer like me! Happy and Satisfied with the most intelligent choice..

All that Nokia stuff you babble on about is freely available from plenty of other places on the web, there's nothing new or innovative there.

You better check that the message centre number is right, for some reason the latest Nokia's are messing it up.

N96, N85, N82, N79 among others can do everything innov8 can do. camera, nokia phones can produce quality and decent pictures enough for a normal sonsumer to show to the world, this people doesnt join photography contest or print a life size picture of themselves so they dont need the camera specs of innov8. they only need a decent camera to help them remember events of their lives.
the additional specs added by innov8 to increase the camera capability just adds up to the price so it didnt sell, simple and precise.
Nokia Phones have GPS, Wifi, QuickOffice and eveything that innov8 have, so nothing is significant in this departments.
Whats Nokia has that innov8 dont, Nokia Maps, Navfon, Ovi, Nokia Vine, Nokia Sports Tracker, Nokia Step Counter, Nokia Audiobooks, Nokia Wellness Diary, Nokia Email, Nokia Photos with Geotagging, Nokia Conversations etc etc etc... All very improtant softwares that well enhance the life of its users.
Nokia has the most number of support websites in the web.
Nokia has the best contumer support having Nokia Service Centers in almost every city in the entire world.
Nokia N96 is chaper by 50Euro over innov8, Nokia N85 and N79 is 150Euro cheaper than innov8, Nokia N82 is 200Euro cheaper.
And all this phones mentioned have unique features not seen in innov8 yet equally important, DVB-H for N96, OLED and FM transmitter for N85, Xpress on cover for N79 and Xenon for N82.
So why do people buy innov8? I dont think they will.
Kenzo, 30 Oct 2008I still dont see your point...?????
yes there 3 different adds 4 the N96 here in South Africa... moreU really have a bad choice of cell. U prefer an N96 over an N95 8Gb which is still better than N96. And u like G810 which is so much lesser than INNOV8. G810 can't even record videos in 30fps while INNOV8 records videos at up to 120fps. U don't like INNOV8 because it has no media keys but u like G810 which has neither media keys nor a dedicated audio chip. G810 is just a camera phone. While INNOV8 is every gadget put into one!
Compare N96 and INNOV8's technical specifications side by side and you'll realize how N96 lacks so many things when compared to INNOV8. The gap between them is like heaven and earth.
