design - 4/10 nokia is running out of concept. this is a hybrid of n81 and n95. i'll rate n81 9/10 for being one of the most good looking phones. i'll rate n96 4/10 for being one of the fugliest!
features - 5/10 nothing new here, except the 16gb. still 5/10 for being an n95 wannabe.
performance - 2/10 i'm sure a lot will be complaining when they buy this phone. nokia never learns from previous mistakes. battery alone is a total disaster. no 3d graphics chip and slow processor for very poor performance!
Guys ! please write your name ! ( You can write it at top of your opinion , if you don't know its place !!!)
Guys ! Don't be worry about the battery life . I knew it ! Nokia always has sth for fans ! ( just check the equipments in website that sell it .)
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2008nokia n96 design - 4/10 features - 5/10 performance - 2/10How can you rate a phone thats not even out!!!
Well, I'm gonna do this... Since I've been waiting for so looooong for this N96, I don't mind to wait a bit longer to compare...
If i8510 come out first and gets better review of its performance than nokia, I'll get it and give nokia a lesson as punishment for being so slow, ignore, proud, price is getting higher and higher on their latest nseries release, just hard to stand with their kinda arrogance

Theirs a big world outside than your pc
it is in the real world where you can find the real importance to practicality and value than your MP..
I can afford expensive phones but I'm not going to be fooled by Innov8, better share your money to the less unfortunate rather than pay for a feature that you don't need
I tell you, you will leave a happy life c", than being envious
this model is the best in nokia but it will not launch here in UAE. Feel sad for those who really want this mobile.
I Bet Nokias kicking themselves now taking so long to get the N96 on the market as Samsung an Sony Ericsson are going to make the N96 sales not that good as expected,they announced the N96 in Febuary but why? is it taking that long to get the N96 released,i was really looking at getting the N96 but either the i8500 or C905 might become available before the N96 an as my contract is over i didn"t upgrade until something on par or even a little better than the Black 8gb N95 i have was avilable an they say the i8500 will be available in August i think i will be getting that mobile instead of waiting for the N96 an i bet a few people will do the same thing as the N96 might become out in September or October
how come the i8510 INNOV8 slimmer than the N96 and its with 8MP camera?!!
n81 is one of the most good looking phones! but when it becomes wide, it looks fugly like n96!
i should say, you cant afford to buy a new and expensive phone model (n96) that is worse and more outdated than its cheaper predecessor (n95 8gb).
n96 will hardly sell a lot because the cheaper n95 has everything this n96 has. when this phone gets launched, price of n95 8gb will go down and more people n95 8gb than this n96. you cant afford to buy a cell for premium amount that cant even last 4 hours of talktime and that is just a copy of the previous model. it's either people will pass and wait for the new nokia nseries model or buy instead samsung i8510 innov8 that has more to offer and has new features in it! i said and i will say it again, n96 is just a mere copy of n95, added the dvb-h & 16gb, but crippled the processor and 3d graphics accelerator. like dvb-h phones n92 & n77, n96 will go the same path, it will be a market flop. samsung i8510 innov8 is better a lot better than this n96!
N96 for smart and practical users
Samsung Innov8 dumb and impractical people, paying more for feature they don't need. 8MP? 5MP is enough unless your into photography business. Paying more for DIVX when they can enjoy total media entertainment with N96. Samsung will be sold for $1,200 against $699 of Nokia..
To people who say Samsung Innov8 is the king of mobile phone. A king cannot be called a king without followers, in mobile world, sales..
And for sure, Innov8 wont sell much, and the rightful King, now Nokia N95 8gb soon Nokia N96
n95 8gb is better than n96. n96 is a downgrade from n95 8gb. samsung i8510 innov8 is certainly a lot better than n96. just have a close inspection of what they are equip of and you'll know what i mean. n96 in some ways is a crippled n95. nokia didn't even put a good battery in it, knowing that battery is the main problem of n95. there's no excuse for that. anybody can see that samsung i8510 beats nokia n96 this time, unless you're blind.
