Ace, 19 Sep 2008Hi Guyz,
Heard that the sunlight visibility of Nokia N96 is worse than N95 and the Samsung ... moreIndoor Innov8's displays a bit better picture that N95 8gb, reveals fewer pixels and appeared smoother overall. However under direct sunlight all of them get washed out. yet you can read text in N96. Samsung has the issue with screen geting washed out under direct light for quite sometime now. So I'm assuming it didn't improve here. They have only fixed it recently with S7330. Innov8 accommodates more text though.
Sound quality will be always better on headphone. Innvo8 currently claims to have the best sound quality. Materials used and the build quality affects speaker phone quality for sure. Innvo8 is ahead on both. I'm wating for GSMarena to do a speakerphone test to reveal the details.
Mobile tv applications will work only if you have moble tv services in your area. Being S60 it will be easy to get one, however I can't say for sure that it will work unless someone tried and tested it. Hope this helps. cheers!
20 day is there to my birtday i will get this phone
exited tomuch about n96
N96 will cost only $599 by January.
Thats a confirmation from a top Nokia Executive.
It will replace the N95 8GB since the later will be face out, call that retiring with pride.
Buy this phone by January, word of advice!

For brightness, again I can't compare with n95 since I dun used it b4. But N96 brightness at its 100% level is gd enough for me. :)

In terms of interface and hardware buttons, I have to admit that K850 is better. But ofcourse when comes to video, this n96 impress me alot. Even taking video in low light conditions is very gd. I still havent transfer my photos to pc, so I am not so sure abt the detailed quality. For sunlight legibility, I am ok with this n96 screen. No ph screen can show u so colorful under direct sun light. The important thing is to see text clearly from the overall background, especially typing sms, and N96 done that gd enough.

I will try out more and yes, I knoe that s60 is the best when comes to personalisation and tons of applications. For kenzo, what parth said is true and key pad is not so small, for me.
Heard that the sunlight visibility of Nokia N96 is worse than N95 and the Samsung INNOV8.
Also It seems the sound of N96 is good only with the Head Phones and the sound quality is pretty Blurry and disturbing on the speaker phones as the material used in N96 is cheaper than INNOV8.
Kal What do you think?
And Is it possible to have the Tv Broadcaster and receiver in the Samsung INNOV8 Also ??
dd, 19 Sep 2008nope, except setting witz which I skipped. Dear dd 4 your kind info. that s60 is the best ui freindly sys now your ans.is go to tools then settings, general, personalisation, themes, powersaver, animation file and your flash file there you go. to kenzo sliding is stable solid,screen is visible good is direct sunlite kickstand is solid keypads are small dificult to texing call quality is never a issue with n96.

My N96 hangs and self restart (so far 2 times) when I take photo (while opening view finder). Loading sms page is slow (compared to my previous s40 devices) but no hangs at all. There must be a few bugs in firmware (or software)since this is first version. Hope we can just upgrade newer and stable version very soon. Now I am happy with this beauty, BUT NOT with s60 UI. I am new to s60 and it gives me headache. How to set flash wallpapers as wallpaper? I use to set flash wallpaper (got it from mobile9.com)in my 6500slide. When I view them in n96, it shows well but in the option menu, there is NO " use as" option. =( pls help me.

Old creepy qvga screen same as n95 8gb
Speakers are loud in video and radio mode but not in music player. Via head phones sound is supperb but not good sonic experience as n91
Os is slow than n95 but if you do themes effects off than it is much faster
Web is better you can download any file via web browser like .rar .exe
Battery life is so so. I strongly advise those who want one that they wait some time for firmware update because it has lot bugs one more thing is camera is as good as n95 not good as n82
