iolo003, 27 Oct 2008i would say that the best Camera and Music phone is Nokia N85
Camera is Carl Ziess 5MP good... moreNOOO,
N96 has 20x zoom (N85 doesn't)
N96 has DVB-H (N85 doesn't)
N96 has Flip-out kickstand (N85 doesn't)
N96 has better 3D Stereo speakers
N96 has 16GB internal,16GB External (N85 just 8GB)
N96 has 2.8 TFT (N85 has 2.6 OLED)
NOTE: (TFT) screens is better than (OLED)
>BUT>>> N85 has 1200 mAH battery
AND the N96 has 950 mAH battery
Just this battery is better than N96,but soon there will be other battery (1200,1100 mAH) available for the N96.
ALSO the both phones has the SAME
(Wifi,3G 3.6 mbps,sensor,naviwheel,S60 3rd v9.3,A-GPS function,Dual slide design,Java MIDP 2.0,3.5 mm audio output jack,TV out,Stereo FM radio with RDS,5MP AF Carl-zeiss camera,Office document viewer ).and also same music features and same sound quality
SOOOO,why N85 better???

Anonymous, 27 Oct 2008If someone come out and say samsung music quality is the best because of their DSn blur blur t... moreU prob'ly dont have a Samsung home stereo component system thats why u have no idea about DNse 2.0. Its a sound technology developed by Samsung that gives better amplification and creates sound effects, and reproduces purer, clearer and noiseless sound with all audio elements clearly audible. Fortunately, that DNse 2.0 is now on a mobile phone which is Samsung INNOV8.
iolo003, 27 Oct 2008i would say that the best Camera and Music phone is Nokia N85 Camera is Carl Ziess 5MP good... morePls dont recommend N85 as a music phone because its sound quality is just slightly better than N95 because of some tweaks in the OS. N85 has no dedicated audio chip. It plays music but it's not a music phone. And pls stop saying that 8MP is not necessary because 8MP will be the standard for camera phones in 2009. Even Nokia is currently developing their own version of INNOV8.
i would say that the best Camera and Music phone is Nokia N85
Camera is Carl Ziess 5MP good enough to snap good quality images
Music feature is one of the best among N Series and has dedicated buttons
And its Nokia..
Innov8 is a good phone but its overprice and contains unecessary features like the 8MP that average people doesnt need. Its a marketing ploy.
batman, 26 Oct 2008i dont tink thers ne fone out ther dat wudnt giv u a problem at sum pointwhy would you type like that? Surely it's more time consuming and annoying that just typing properly. Come one dude!
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2008n96 is made for tv and video. it has a deskstand, 2.8 inch display, dedicated video processor ... moreTrue, but if i wanted a phone for video i would get the 5800xm. It has a massive 3.2 inch screen, desktop cradle in the retail package, loud speakers (nokia's best offering so far) and a dedicated 3d image engine. Plus it cost is much much cheaper than n96.

If someone come out and say samsung music quality is the best because of their DSn blur blur technology, I want to lol. I am not nokia fan, but I use SE, nokia and samsung ph, plus I and my friends got few mp3 players of sony, samsung, i pod etc. Samsung provide many control in their mp3 players but simply lousy in quality.
To the person who is asking if there is a Nokia phone that specializes on Music and Camera, there is no such Nokia phone currently. There is a Nokia phone that specializes on Music and Gaming and that's N81/N81 8Gb. N96 specializes on TV & Video playback. There is a phone that specializes on Music and Camera but it's not a Nokia phone. It's Samsung INNOV8. Even though INNOV8 lacks hardware music keys, it still beats any other music phones when it comes to audio quality. INNOV8 has DNse 2.0, Samsung's very own sound technology. It's the best currently. I don't know how Nokia can match this.
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2008If the n96 was made for video, then why is the 5800xm excel better in this department? It has... moren96 is made for tv and video. it has a deskstand, 2.8 inch display, dedicated video processor for great video quality playback.
I see not major functionality upgrade compared to my good old N95. Honest company would have called it N95 2.0 and would not charge $700 for a face lifted oldie. I suppose I'll use my N95 until rails fall off and it splits in two, then Nokia might have something to offer in this segment.
If the n96 was made for video, then why is the 5800xm excel better in this department? It has a much bigger and better screen, a better cpu, it comes with a desk stand and has a much juicier battery, yet it costs less than half of what n96 costs. I dont understand it. Or is it the TV receiver that makes n96 video oriented?
i have had this phone and its ok to a standed the phone is not very good for everyday use has the battery dont last long if you'r playing with it all the time has my 7yr old plays with it all the time
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2008lol u a gal,u must b a major nokia fanim a proud Nokia Supporter dude!
i havent found a mobile company yet that can surpass d quality, durability and customer support than Nokia can offer.
somehow im at ease owning Nokia devices as they have d best after sales support, the most number of software innovations that caters to uplift customers way of life. nokia service centers everywhere, nokias numerous websites for information and product enhancements, nokia maps, wellness diary, sports tracker, nokia vine, ovi and a whole lot more!
Thats my Nokia!
I find it a decent phone,but why on earth did nokia not stick to the mini usb port as on the n95?.I find my phone freezes momentarilly bt a software update should sort this out,as it cant be a shortage of memory mine has 24gig in at the moment(wrong I know)but its a memeory sick for my work tansfer
i dont tink thers ne fone out ther dat wudnt giv u a problem at sum point
the N96, looks good with its black and silver curves, finally a phone that has a good rep and now decent looks. Picked 1 up a week ago, already been replaced as the more i loaded up the 16gb int memory the slower it got, taking 10secs just to bring up typing screen on reply to a text for inst. Eventually it froze at an inconsiderable 8pm, 3 days and 1.5gb int mem use later. Network provider advised a soft reboot but lost all my uploaded phone memory(well p****d off)as phone appeared to format its own memory on swithing on, got phone replaced next day no prob, same prob with use of internal memory though! Moved all data to memory card and phone whizes thro menus like it should!
Q. Why have 16gb int mem available to use at the cost of taxing the already slow processor(installed to preserve battery life) to the point of shutdown?
I'm in the process of exchanging handsets completely through original retailer or cancel contract within my 14 day period and picking up a proper 'all in one phone' with a much smaller internal memory and a standard 8gb micro-sd external memory, the swedes may have been the forerunners with mobile phone technology in the past but now they have definitely been left to grow in the fields-LG KC910 is my desire, no sluggish windows, no labyrinth like symbian, no glithes with trying to be something its not. Lets Go digital!!!!
SP, 26 Oct 2008I totally agree with you mate. The N96, N85 and N79 are not as good as the previous N-Series i... moreTrue, but i think n79 is an exception in this case since candybar phones are never the forefront of technology.
As far as the users have reported, it doesnt have any software issues experienced on this year's n-series phones. It looks like a cuter version of n82 which is nice. Its picture quality is better than n96 and is on par with 6220c. If you arent a gaming or video fanatic, there's no reason to get n85 or n96, plus its got a few neat features that might make the n82 and n79 a little jealous.
