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.
phoney, 26 Sep 2008But why pay ridiculous price of a phone with hardly N95's specs when you can buy an 8meg from ... more8meg resolution is NOT an upgrade to a 5meg! LoL. Who the hell takes photos in 8meg resolution? LoL!
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!!
does this phone have a e-mail feature because it is so complicated I do not understand where can I find the feature if there is one?
But why pay ridiculous price of a phone with hardly N95's specs when you can buy an 8meg from other manufacturers of the lower price. Sure, 5meg is enough for now, but everyone will surely love to have an upgrade of 3meg res of a phone with lesser price or the same price as of N96.
All these people saying "oh the Nokia is not so good as it only has 5mp!" Oh for goodness sake? Are you buying a phone or a camera? 5mp is enough. If you are in to excellent photography buy a proper camera!
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2008already 5 models with 8 megapixel and many more: one s.e.,two lg,two samsung. innov8 it's alre... morewe just dont need just 8MP here, we need a total all-in-one device, tv, camera and everything else. who says 8 megapixel is important among regular and normal people when experts tell us that 3.2 is even enough for regular used? your hit by a marketing fraud..
i have been using n73 recently,then i bought n81 8gb,and i guess its more kewl then n96.because there's nothing special in it....
already 5 models with 8 megapixel and many more: one s.e.,two lg,two samsung. innov8 it's already on the market at the same price with n96. so don't waste on money on nokia
Have been using N73 for two years,and very happy. Been due an upgrade for six months but been hanging on for N96 -but now not so sure.
does the phone have loudspeaker for hands-free? Is there any point to the tv-will we be able to access any programs yet? Battery life is another issue. Gsm and Nokia seem to be at odds over battery life. Can anyone give a reasonable,honest estimate? Once you buy it you are stuck with it and it's not cheap. Can anyone answer there questions please. Someone who has actually used this phone. Thank you
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2008it packs some serious specifications but i'm quite dissapointed with nokia for downgrading fro... moreactually the processor of n96 has advantages and disadvantages over the n95 processor. the advantages are its processor gives high quality sound and video playback and consumes minimal battery power so 950mah battery is expected to last even longer than 1200mah battery of n95 8gb. the disadvantages are its slower than the n95 processor and has no 3d graphics accelerator. the reason why n96 does not have 8mp camera is because n96 is just an update of n95 8gb. the camera of n96 is actually a downgrade of the n95 camera. it has smaller lens and shorter focal length than n95 camera.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2008i don't agree with u..some specifications are better on n96 and some others on i8510.. innov8... morecorrection: the n96 does not have a 3d graphics accelerator. the i8510 innov8 has. n96 and i8510 innov8 both have dsp chip with i8510 providing much better sound quality.
