The proof that n96 was not a worthy succesor of n95 is in the number of units sold,where n96 is far below the n95! And also in popularity! The n95 was considered by the majority of profile reviews as the best phone at that time! I never saw a review that placed the n96 in the first place! Anticipated? It might have been,but it failed to meet the expectations of costumers!
my nokia n96 is not showing dstv in a 3g city in nigeria. I was told its not all shows dstv but i read online dat all has dvb for life tv. What do i do

At 200$ for a new phone I think it's worth it. If you're looking for a non-touch multimedia phone you should have also checked for other phones in the Nseries like n85,n95,n82,n79,n82 or Samsung Innov 8. Those are good alternatives to the n96.
wonderful and i love it...its complete and easy to use everywhere...

Nokia has not been able to create another true best seller ever since. Today the opinions are devided about what is the best phone. Back then it was no contest n95 was the best! Judging after the most important criterea,selles numbers the n96 did not manage to fill the shoes of n95. A pretty slow phone,with a bulky aspect suffering from the symbian disease-restarts and freezes! It has also good parts and It would be a lie to say it's a bad phone but overall the n96 won't be remembered as one of Nokia's best phones!
Yes the n95 8GB 1200 MAH battery can fit inside the n96 but it has to be trimmed a bit. I saw a video on youtube with a guy who explains the way...

Anonymous, 04 Dec 2010N97 is epic fail! nokia confimed that!Nokia said the N97 software was not ready when released but had a successful sales. Nokia are updating frequently and will be adding more features on most of their smartphones like ovi browser etc on 2011
The only real problem with N-Series is the battery gauge stays at level 7 bars for ages then drops quickly as is 60-70% of the power is in bar 7.The gauge needs adjusting but thats hard..The n-series are the best smartfones in the world..I have nearly all of them in my life and love em..

Nokia n96 and n97 have all sold more than 5 million each. Nokia new strategy is discontinue the predecessor and focus on the sucessor. Nokia phones always sell well and i know Nokia N8 is going to set a new record in the smartphone world.

The 1100 is the world best selling phone because it solded extremelly well in third world countryes. The arte series has targeted a special niche of costumers!Nokia lost the top-spot in the smartphone segment with n96 and n97! The n96 was not a proper replacement for the n95! The n95 sold 7 million units! The n96 and n97 sold each around half! The dvb-tunner was not on the top of the costumers top requairements! That's why it was taken out of production! Because it wasn't a best seller! Don't you know the golden rule? The winning team is never changed! The n96 was not a winning phone!

Probably the stores you went to have finished their stocks! Try buying one online from the sites given by Gsmarena,I'm sure they are trustworthy ,or try Ebay or if you know someone get one from the black market.Good luck!
