This all-round device could be an attractive alternative to the N79 and N85 along with the Samsung i8515 but only if its price drops. There is no denying the sheer level of technology under the bonnet.
this phone is really intended to be sold at around $599 as it will replace N95 8GB's price bracket since the latter have been set for retirement.
price is dropping.
last week i found it for 950 canadian, I'm glad i waited a week now it's 780 Canadian, I bought it, lol.
yeah because the processor is slower and the phone really isnt any better than the n95 8 gig, infact the n95 8 gig is probably better, it actually has a higher capacity battery if you look it up.

But at least u have the choice to do so. That's the greatness of today's technology, everyday it gets even better and bring us to other greater choices. Its an upgrade definitely.
i just got this phone today, i'm in love with it, ive spent the past year with an n93i..i couldnt hav replaced it with a better a phone...excellenct camera nd video quality is superb
oh my good this fone is the best ever i almost shot my load when i first used it!!
it's a good but some fuathar is not working well because of some technical fault in short it is a rediculas phone
I had a chance to play around n96 for some time,not impressive.feature wise its very much identical to n95 8gb.except DVB-H.lookwise its same as n81 except big size.now tell me why anybody spend a lot of money for n96?,when you get every feature in n95.n96 dosen't deserve this price tag.better you get n95 or n81
I am waiting for this phone for 9 month why in the hell it takes so long to come to vodafone greece!!!
I don't understand the point of this phone, surely there's no need for it when it's practically identical to the N95 8GB - working as part upgrade agent for a network provider the amount of people I've had hold off for this more expensive phone when the can already have a phone of near idnetical features at a much better price - Apart fro mit looks slightly nicer (tough I prefer the chunky style of the 95s). My point :) Don't hold out for it when you can get much better for cheaper!

Pre ordered on Nokia UK website couple days ago and finally delivered today. Overall this is an improvement of Nokia N95 8GB. The dual LED flash is not very powerful.

It's hilarious how all these phone companies keep coming up with all these fancy add-ons and keep making ever more powerful phones, when they can't even solve the most basic problem that hinders them - BATTERY LIFE.
According to the specs, the N96 has even worse batter life than the N95. Jeez, and the N95's batter life SUCKED!!! LoL!!
