Samsung has durability issues not only with their mobile phones but with there televison sets, ref, dvd etc. its there practice of putting low grade parts to lessen manufacturing cost and increasing more profit that destroys them, so getting a samsung means a suicide in your mobile device or appliances.
Feature wise, N96 will still be a better option because innov8 is nothing but an extra mp and divx, not needed by regular people like the most of us. getting innovate is like a suicide also in your money, waste! nothing more..
nokia n96 and samsung i8510 innov8 are not rivals actually. they are just being put head to head against each other because they are both flagship phones of their respective companies. it just so happens that samsung takes the lead this time.
i really hope the rumours r true that the reason this is still delayed is cos nokia r concentrating on there 8mp phone which i would love to have but should release same time as sony c905
Rave_zzz, 02 Aug 2008This phone just a piece of junk..! 16Gigs-Samsung had it..! 5megapixels without lens cover-Sam... moreno matter how many megapixels samsung put in a phone it wont b as good as a 5mp nokia.. Samsung r a joke compared to nokia i have never seen a decent samsung phone they all just plastic junk

samsung i8510 innov8 which has brand new features to offer is going to be released this month! while nokia n96 whose features are already 2 years old will be released only in october! gsmarena already has a preview of samsung i8510 innov8 and the 8mp camera is seductive. will you need a 8mp camera in a phone? why not? if pre-production units of samsung innov8 suggest that 8mp has great image quality, then it's really worth the 150 euros more than nokia n96. what are you paying 600 plus euros for n96? the 5mp, vga 30fps video? wow, that's feature's price never subsides! it's better to pay 750 euros for samsung i8510 innov8 for its new features than to pay 600 euros for nokia n96 for features that have already been there 2 years ago! the 150 euros more is really worth in my opinion. bad marketing strategy from nokia this time.
Winura, 02 Aug 2008(hope someone at nokia see this) whats the hold up for this phone? samsung just announced i... moreI think Nokia already lost 1 of their beloved customer... ME..! I Won't buy N96, I'll buy the INNOV8... DEFINETLY!!!
endlessz, 02 Aug 2008@ Winura: i agree with u.. this phone was announced since february..why hasnt it come up till... moreI think Nokia want to make a phenomenal launcing like the N95, they announce it and we have to wait so long till it released, well they've made it on N95, but this time, the result is people get bored and another brand had beaten it with the better hardware and software...
Tossy, 02 Aug 2008From inside nokia, N96 is going to hit market 1st week of september with the following changes... moreOh come on where did you get that info..! Even if it's came with lens cover, the camera beneath it just had only 5Megapixels, and the design is just similar to N81, people will see that we use an N81...
This phone just a piece of junk..! 16Gigs-Samsung had it..! 5megapixels without lens cover-Samsung had better 8megapixels with lens cover..! Latest S60 "another phone" had it too (did you hear me say samsung) And the most important when this phone released someday, we already got the 10 megapixels cameraphone on our hand..! So forget about it, it doesn't worth to wait, there are better one out there..!
Tossy, 02 Aug 2008From inside nokia, N96 is going to hit market 1st week of september with the following changes... moreHaving a camera lens protector is good. but whats the point in putting N95's keypad when this phone has a keypad of its own. the current keypad looks fine to me. Hope the phone will come with more kit as standard to prevent the samsung being the king.
@ Winura: i agree with u..
this phone was announced since february..why hasnt it come up till now? i'm quite tired waiting for it..it should have come on in like july or august..
i hope this fone price will not be like laptop i hope it price would be around bout 200-300 pound wud be great start for nokia
n96 is a boring phone. knowing that it has no 3d graphics accelerator and the tiomap 2430 processor, i lost interest to this phone.
