This is very beautiful ph indeed. when i use my sony earpiece (bud type) , I am really suprise with the song quality. I love strong bass (like SE offer megabass), and this ph satisfied me 100%.
i hope to get this phone later next year, hopefully when the price drops down to at least 20 thousand in philippine pesos which i doubt it ever will. otherwise, i'm definitely going for n85. because it is really regretful to buy tens of thousands of pesos for a phone when its price will eventually drop down in time. i learned my lessons well. don't buy a phone in its first 6 months of release. because you will get an improved version of that same phone in much lower price after 6 months!

I love how this phone phone looks. I'm so tempted to buy it right now.
But i also want to Xperia X1, because of the keyboard.
In the end I think i'll stick with the n96, Thanks your comment helped me make up my mind.

Though the whole keypad is one flat piece (it make the ph looks cool), I dun have any problem typing. The only downside is it is slow when opening and replying messages. It take quite long to load the typing page. But while u r typing, it doesn't have a single lag.
Kal the KSP fanboy, your probably freaking out to the highest level because all the N96 enthusiast are attacking you now, i feel sorry for you. c",
When I talk about all-in-one and best value, it means that N96 has everything that a mobile phone can give, camera, etc and dvb-h receiver, your phone has no dvb-h so its not complete, and best value, your phone cost $400 more and what can we get out of $400, 8MP and some improvements. to think that Nokia already provides us with one of best camera and top of the line features for mobile, is that worth taking?
have you ask anybody yet as to what they would prefer, TV or 8MP on their phone?
I need to know something, if you fill the entire 16gb with music will the phone become Slow and stuff?
Kal, 17 Sep 2008Whatever I have said about Nokia, I can justify them. I stand by my words. I have raised some ... moreNo dude i neva praised or promoted the N96 based on mobile reviews.....i was jst quoting them 2 counter your Atack on the N96 ....seen that you wer using the same medium(specs/review) 2 support your i8510.......
Im jst waiting 4 the Phone...2 reach my country South Africa then ill purchase it....
Oh by the way DVB-H TV is free in my country hehehehe....all i hav 2 do is call my service provider and fetch my new sim card....
You see it works perfectly 4 me.N96..
2010 Soccer World Cup in my pocket..... ;o)
Wat Phones you own?....
hey, got a question about the keypad.
I text alot and i plan on using this phone for emails too.
Is the keypad on this phone good for typing text messages/emails? on a scale of 1- 10
(10 being as fast and accurate as a QWERTY keyboard, and 1 being randomly pushing buttons, hoping to produce a readible sentence)
and how is the web browser for this phone? is the screen too small?
Kal, 17 Sep 2008Someone always has to start this all over again huh.
Its already available on orange and o2... moreFirst off, it hasnt been officially confirmed by gsmarena or any other website about the unlocked versions. Also Orange did the same thing with the n78, yet they didnt have it.
Secondly, i did check the measurements. At first glance, they look similar, but the reviews of both handsets say quite a different story, and they dont make your i8510 look good. You should read why, but from what they said, operating the i8510 is difficult, especially with one hand. So it is you who should check your facts twice or maybe even thrice.
You also didnt answer any of my questions or respect the 'no reply' request. Probably because you couldnt find a suitable answer. So dont come here insulting people or saying youre allergic to bulls**t when in fact youre so full of it.
You should just give it a rest. As long as you continue to post negative remarks here about our beloved n96, you will always be met with hostility. Bye bye.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2008Kal, why are you in the n96 forum? Why dont you go 2 the samsung forum? Why are you flaunting ... moreSomeone always has to start this all over again huh.
Its already available on orange and o2 in europe for free with contract. Ref: carphonewarhouse, mobiles.co.uk
Other than the camera there are a list of things that Innov8 has and n96 dosn't. Let me not start here again.
I'm not dumb as you think that I will ask why the 3.5 mm jack is on top.Raed my post again. I have asked is it a BIG deal to have it on top? I knew what you have said and I agreed. But is that a buying factor? N95 or N95 8gb didn't have it on "top" either and I dont see anyone complaining.
Let me give the measurement. May be you didn't notice.
N96: 103 x 55 x 18 mm
INNOV8: 106.5 x 53.9 x 17.2 mm
So you are saying n96 won't fit in pocket either as its even wider that innov8. Innov8 is just tall, not fat as you claim it to be.
Try checking your facts twice before you hit the submit button please.
Could you people please stop posting crap about innov8. I'm alergatic to bulls**t.

Samsung is not Nokia and... moreKal, why are you in the n96 forum? Why dont you go 2 the samsung forum? Why are you flaunting your i8510 which isnt even out? Wasnt it supossed to come out last month? This month is almost over and i still dont see it anywhere.
Secondly, apart from the beeèd up camera, is there anything that the i8510 can do that the n96 cant?
Thirdly, an 8 megapixel is not a new feature. It is an improvement of an already existing feature (the camera). Something like an fm transmitter or a DVB-H TV receiver is a unique feature which is still new and has currently no improvements. Now you tell me which phone has more features.
By the way, let me ask you this. Does a beefed up camera constitute a difference of over 200 euros? 550 euros vs 780 euros (an example is n78 and n79 which have basically the same features except for the camera and retail package, but their price difference will not be more than 70 euros).
I saw you asking a question about why the 3.5mm audio jack is on top. Its not rocket science. Every music gadget has its audio jack at the top or the bottom. Even the ipods and iphones. In the case of the i8510, the phone is so bulky and heavy, it can barely fit into a pocket. Its even wider than nokia e90. Having the audio jack at the side will mean that the earphones will keep protruding in the pocket. Furthermore, they will always be bent when in use in the pocket and this may eventually damage them very quickly.
Finally, let me tell you about the music quality which you praise so much. Europe is where the i8510 will mainly flourish. However, due to the EU restrictions, the music quality shall be toned down. For your info, the n91 was way above these restrictions before they were implemented. Thats why no phone can pass its audio quality. Outside europe, the i8510 wont sell well due to its crazy price tag, yet in these other countries, its music quality isnt restricted.
So do us all a favor and please dont reply, just stop posting here.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Whatever I have said about Nokia, I can justify them. I stand by my words. I have raised some questions some issues some facts which mostly went unanswered. If you don't have ANYTHING to counter them with facts, lets not shout N96 is the Best or drag samsung or innov8 farther in your reply.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2008Let me ask u Mr Kal. Do u own innov8 and already using it for weeks? Based on my experience, u... moreMany of us don't own a phone and still debate about its features based on what the specs on paper along with what all website reviews are saying. Those who are reviewing it, had the phone in hand, tested it and reached a conclusion. For me I will get my hands on innov8 as soon the price drops a bit. For kenzo, he is also waiting to get n96. But it's sad that when some well known websites talks good about nokia, some people think they are unbiased and when the very same reviewer talks good about other brands they suddenly becomes fanboy.
Kenzo, 17 Sep 2008My memory serves me perfectly .....thank you Dr Kal Lol and wat makes me 2 be Blind?.....and ... moreNo issues with you Kenzo. I have already said that post was meant for iolo003 and not you. You obviously reviewed everything and came to the conclusion that N96 serves your purpose. I'm no one to convince you to change your mind. Samsung doesn't pay me for that. Lol. But the fact that you have appreciated and impressed with some other brand is fair enough. Chill.
Let me ask u Mr Kal. Do u own innov8 and already using it for weeks? Based on my experience, u only know how gd or bad the ph is after u actually use it, especially for high tier phones. I 100% agree wit u innov8 is the best in spec ON PAPER.
