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!

hi i from singapore i hear about n96 i wanted to buy one but in singapore they say they don have the phone where can i buy it hmmm is hard to find the phone in singapore
Nokia sell 270,000 symbian smartfones worldwide every day.Obviuously short of 2 million a week but thats worldwide and ONLY symbian smartfones, figures on all their other range seem to vary from 400,000 to 625.000 but these been mainly second fones and bought in emerging markets sales fluctuste massivly..So in other words people get paid at odd times and buyung of bulk fones can boost figures one montha nd see the cut down the next.
Out of ALL the mobile fones since 1998 ive had htc make the worst quality. I would put many alcatel tranducers (ie speakers,microphones) quality higher than whay htc use.Yet htc are the most expensive??
Sun, 01 Dec 2010What world are you living in,James? No manufacturer takes a phone out of the production line i... moreSun for your information Nokia N96, N97 and N8 are all successful. Nokia normally sells it's phones unlocked or sim - free while Apple and Android phones are sold through service providers. Since, the service providers subsidies the prices, sales are high. Any phone sold unlock is not a success apart from Nokia. All successful Apple and Android phones are sold mostly by carriers. Phones that have more features have higher cost which implies lower profit margin viceversa.
As yourself why Nokia 5800 is among the most sold touch screen phone and Nokia 1100 is the most sold phone and gadget. Nokia 8800 arte is expensive so can't be afforded by many people. The average living dominate the market so devices made for such people will rule.
guys where can i get full n gage games to download freely?some1 have deleted all my games. anyway i luv n96 then anybody esle lol.

No manufacturer takes a phone out of the production line if it's still able to generate profit! The n96 was takes out of production mainly because of it's low selles rates! What part don't you understand? Nokia lost the smartphone segment in the n96,n97 period because n96 was not considered a worthy succesor of n95! The only improvement over the n95 was the extended memory storage and your "cherished" dvb-tunner! It's clear that your knoledge about phones is very limited since you don't know these facts!

Samsung Galaxy S is a nice phone but comparing a touch screen to a non-touch screen Nokia N96 is absurd.
I will just list some facts:
1. Nokia N96 is popular than Samsung Galaxy S
2. Nokia N96 price history was dropping at a slower pace than Samsung Galaxy S
3. Nokia N96( 2 years old) is in the same price group of Samsung Galaxy S(half a year old)
4. Nokia N96 has excellent call quality and 3d stereo sound than Samsung Galaxy S
5. Nokia N96 has inbuilt video and sound chip that converts video and sound straight away but Samsung Galaxy S lack this hardware.
Nokia N96 will always be remembered
you guys talk about phones and end up buying new ones, can get no satisfaction, you have a point, but its pointless

Try buying it online,there are sites who still sell it.
