Dimitrii, 14 Sep 2008This is a perfect phone! Weeell... The battery can do some better. But I love this big screen!... moresorry, but there is nothing great about a QVGA screen that has a 2.8" diagonal
you can see the individual pixels really nicely
Is anyone aware that you can now register your interest for the N96 on the T-Mobile website!
Kenzo, 14 Sep 2008Yes you can India was the 1st country 2 Lounch the N96 it comes with nyc cnannels and 2 Movies... moreYou have dvb h in uk, on the site it says oxford and cambridge. but surely you can get it elsewhere or soon you will have it elsewhere.
nice phone i saw the live demo at the mobilestore, great features, nice clarity good battery backup
I bought a Nokia N95-2 8 GB.
Unfortunately, the phone seems to be faulty out of the box.
First I noticed that the sliding screen cover was a little loose and I suggested to myself it wasn’t a major problem and that an adjustment could be done to fix it at nokia service deparment, but the worst was about to come.
After charging the device fully I turn it on. A massage “start-up failed, contact your retailer” appeared. After 3-4 attempts the phone loaded and was working. It was a little slow and with some strange menu jumps at first but, after a couple of hours the phone restarted by it self and seemed to be working much better. I tried to restore the phone, using the N-Series PC suit program which I had from my other N95-2 but, unfortunately again, this attempt failed through the progress at 81%.
My last attempt was to update the firmware as that the new v.30.0.018 was available from Nokia software’s updater program for this phone. This action was installed successfully and made the phone working much better, but again you could notice that it wasn’t perfect and it has turned off several times by its self.
I’ve had NOKIA phones all my life including the N95 and N95 8GB so I think a can be in a position to understand that something is wrong or not.
8 hours from my purchase of this phone, made me hate it and forced me to give up and repack it.Not even the screen sticker was ever removed.
With all the respect, all the above mentioned are very honest. I think I deserve a fully replacement and not a fixing service. I have decided to will wait for the new N96 or N85 to arrive. I hope NOKIA SHOP accept my decistion.
I have had constant issues over the N96....and now its all come to a end, as last night when i was sleeping i was charging my N96 and woke up to battery acid/smoke coming from the phone, it eventually went on fire...ive been into contact with Nokia and they said for me to take it to the nearest retail outlet and get it sent away for testing. Nokia another phone...... another explosion, your hopeless
This is a perfect phone! Weeell... The battery can do some better. But I love this big screen! Beautiful when taking a picture and very usable when surfing. Guys, get this phone! I had an Ericsson, but now I am a Nokia fan! :)
Hari, 14 Sep 2008Hi guys. I saw a few sites claiming that N96 has a touchscreen. Is that true by any chance?sorry, not touchscreen
wait for Nokia Tube instead if you want one, its on its final production stage, maybe introduce in a Nokia event this oct2 but its a midrange phone and not part of the Nseries.
im excited for the N98 flagship touchscreen, to be introduce next year c",

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2008n95 8 gb has far better battery life.... the specs for both phones are the same...n96 looks be... moreActually, the difference in battery life between n95 8gb and n96 isnt big. According to the reviews, the n95 8gb stays on longer for just a few hours under normal use (between 1-5 hours), but n96 outdoes the n95 8gb when playing music and videos.
