I absolutely agree, the battery life is too weak. A 950mAh battery is only supposed to be with phones with small draining power like the 1 series or the 2 series.
Camera 5 MP, Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus,
video(VGA 30fps), flash; secondary VGA videocall camera,
Built-in GPS receiver
Symbian OS 9.3
microSD (TransFlash), up to 8GB
16 GB internal memory
128MB RAM, 256MB storage memory.
Are you want more????
I have a Nokia N95 and bought it shortly after it was released..true it had OS issues like freezing often, however was resolved when firmware was upgraded. I am pleased with the phone and look forwrd for the N96 to be released in time of my upgrade of my contract with Orange...sad to see that Nokia has not added anything much interesting after one year to the N96 than the Memory capacity and slight variant to the looks as well. I am used to the routine of charging my phone everyday and it is ok as I am used to it and also I have bought a spare BL-5F battery and dual charger and carry it with me if I am going to be away from power supply for a while. So it is convenient. so the features out-do the power consumption of the phone.If Nokia improved on power anyway would be much appreciated!
Smooth move Nokia. Did we not learn from the N95 that a 950mA battery would be useless in this phone?
How long before we have a new and improved version (a la N95 8GB) version with a new battery then? Not exactly subtle marketting technique...but it seems to work for them :-s
I HAD THE N80 3H BATTERY LIFE TIME BAD BAD
symbian runns more then one appp at the same time , uses more battery it s logic
activate msn mp3 player , make a video call in , you will have the phone on for 1.5 h
n82 has better battery and !!!1 16 gb lol it s all about memory cards not built in.
The hand set looks v. Nice. I use the standard n95 to it max at the mo manily cos t-mobile give me free data.
The specs seem 2 cover most of the short falls on the n95 ie better web radio support and most importantly it has a large internal memory WITH a sd card reader. This i feel was the main short fall with the 8gb n95 and the n91. How many times did u want 2 transfer files 2 other devices but cudnt with out using a computer. Or incressingly view movies shiped on micro sd cards.
Its just a shame that there is no ir support, a lower spec secondery camera and a low battery life although i wud hope it uses the better power managment software as the 8gb n95. Plus i wonder how gud the reception will be 4 the digital tv?
the nokia n95 is very very best and i like it bcoz i am a wrestler
@ ricky: lol!

guys do comments on my reply
i m right or wrong?
almost bought this phone in feb when it camed out, but thank god i didn't! just picked up my N96 64GB (N96-64) yesterday!!! its amazing. the pearl white colour is brilliant! 64GB memory, 256MB RAM, 480x640 resolution; and ARM 22664 MHz processor!!! luv it!
yeah great features low on battery life, nokia should concentrate on making a more durable battery... it should catch up with the features in it.
N96 and better than N95 that 16GB Phone memory.
i think it will be good for persons want video hight quality. because Nokia N96 can update to 32GB by 16GB(PM) plus 16GB(MC).
Hello Nokia N96, It is very good but very bad is battery. Battery should increase upto 12h talk time and +400h standby. Example phone Sonyericsson G900
We all request to Nokia. Please Increase the talk time of all Nokia Mobile
With all those superb phone features, how do you think its weak battery will last? Most of Nokia's highs end phones have weak battery capacity.
I have made up my mind to buy this phone N96 but its does not have a touch screen,so I desided not to, nokia company! if you can come up with the same fixtures on this Nokia phone with a touch screen, it will sell out quick try your best.
so large screen and resolution just 320*240 it's a joke!and every day freezing fone with no battery life.plus is vga video and gps but it is just stealing ideas from asian mobile market,do not say about cheap plastic material and foggy pictures taken from carl zeiss,no,nokia never again,better any pc phone such as asus and so on or some good phone from panasonic,sharp,SE japanese version ...
@ Lance H: Do U have This Cell Phone?
From Where U Bought ? and how much u paid for it?
this phone really sucks. keeps freezing and the camera isn't all that. screen goes white sometimes and battery life is poor. really regret buying this n96.
yes this look gud i sure buy in in july or in september as it expected so it look like a good phone to me
Dear friends, despite having a 950 mAh battery, N96 is more capable than N95 8GB. Referring to mobile-review.com's hands on review, here's the battery comparison:
* GPS-navigation – 3 hours
* Video – 4.5 hours (rated at 5 hours, the Nokia N95 8Gb lasted 3.5 hours).
* WEB surfing (over EDGE) – 3 hours (same 3 hours on the N95 8Gb).
* Wi-Fi (non-stop data upload) – 3.5 hours (N95 8Gb – 3 hours).
* Music (in headphones) – 13.5 hours (rated at 14 hours, the Nokia N95 8Gb – at 10 hours)
* TV (only for the N96) – up to 5 hours.
They also wrote, "We are confident the phone will easily last 2 days even in the most extreme usage mode (except for non-stop web-browsing), and if you are planning to use nothing but its voice calls, then expect 3-4 days of operation, depending on how much time you spend on the phone." -- http://www.mobile-review.com/review/nokia-n96-en.shtml
