Anonymous, 12 Oct 2008I have had n96 for over a week now and i totally not liking it. Its got very poor performance ... morenot true. my n96 comes with n gage asphalt and it no problem in any aspect when playing. but my ph has some bugs in other areas.
I Compared this phone & G810 Samsung's Camera and G810 was so better than N96's Camera! Why Nokia always is Behind of Samsung in Camera ??!!
Glad I decided to get the i8510 5 wks ago instead of waiting for this huge disappointment of a handset to come out. Had been waiting since beginning of the year for N96 to arrive, thought yep that'll be my next upgrade from my N95, but no, they've taken so long to release the phone that it has now been overtaken as the best all round Symbian handset by the i8510.
When you get down to the specs there is hardly any improvement over the N95. That is pretty poor when you think that the original N95 was release in the UK over 18 months ago.
I am generally an admirer of Nokia handsets but I can not believe how cheap this phone feels, it's supposed to be their Flagship !
Surely there must be something more advanced than this from Nokia in the near future which hasn't been announced yet ?
Are they purposely letting the competition catch up ? Squeezing every last penny out of the N95 design ?
awsome person, 10 Oct 2008ugh i am reeaally getting sick of people who have not even got the phone, and just say it is s... moreI have had n96 for over a week now and i totally not liking it. Its got very poor performance in graphics, its benchmarikin is just 900 something(while n95 goes to 6000 something!). The Snakes game lags in it(wth!).
Gsmarena, I think you should add the Graphics stuff too in your review, because you said, that the cpu difference wouldnt be so easy to find out in the applications, but i have to say, pls try out ngage games in it, and it would be lagging for you too( try brothers in arms, snakes itself, )
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2008are u gus saying the truth about this phone cause i want to buy it buy the phone.dont believe on the negative comments on this forum.i am now using it. excellent mobile.
2pac, 11 Oct 2008How can I protect the screen?i bought plastic protector fits for screen. it is very nice.
I have had mine for a few days now and i personally like the design and the phone's features. Whilst many of you complain about the battery life i work in a phone store and let me tell you all phones with this many features all have poor battery life! Furthermore, it is very very loud, good quality audio and the build seems of a very good quality, Stop complaining, whilst it is not a huge step up from the N95i, it is still the best compromise between a smartfone and a traditional fone on the market.

I'm shocked at how much Nokia has been caught with their pants down on this model.
Having just tested Samsung's i8510 innov8 highlighted how many things the N96 is missing. The list is embarrasing. On top of that is the plastic feel of the N96 and crampt keypad.
Nokia really need to pick up their game in handsets again rather than faffing around in all the other areas.
They need to sack some people. Those who left them with their pants down.
guys , is it really really that this phone's batt cant last long ? every 1 day ? or 1 day ++ ? or how long ?
Finally..this bucky arrived Miri,Boulevard..quite light in weight when i hv a hold on it.Cheap look keypad..and the price is Rm32++..really worth?nop...it's a phone that u need to bring the charger along,OMG!imagine hw is it when u hv to make a call or surf the function of ur phone for a while and CHARGE!CHARGE!CHARGE!Bucky battery hunger monster!!!
