i don't thinck that the battery life time will be great, it has a lot of functions, and such a small battery.......onley 950mAh, hope they put a bigger one
gud design , one of the handset who xpress nokia on the top of the bottom.........keep it upppppppppp
That's not true that the battery is poor and this phone is not yet out at the market places so don't invent words and this phone is the best!!! complete features and the design is cool... well done Nokia

I am a verizon wireless customer. can you put the nokia phone and n96 verizon wireless. thank you. can you put price low down. thank you.
Wow this phone has everything ... looks awesome. Im thinking it even comes with free software issues as well. Thats great - nice and unreliable
Responding to The_nootz.
I'm sorry, I can't quite answer that. Reason being, the scenario you gave of 950 mAh battery not lasting for more than two days if you take a couple of shots and listen to an album is too broad. Are you questioning stand-by time after stated usage? Are you including daily calls? What are the durations of the calls? Furthermore, are the calls being based on a 2G or 3G frequency? There's many factors that goes into the longevity of a battery.
Realistically, no mobile handset's battery, under constant heavy use, will last more than two days, or 48 hours regardless of capacity. This is law. Many misinterpret the quoted stand-by/talk times in mobile handsets' descriptions. All resulted times are formulated, which is basically theoretic. This theory does not incorporate other power draining factors. Basic stuff like powering up of the device or keeping the LCD screen lit for example.
I guess the only reasonable answer to your question is that it depends on how you use the device. Overall, a more moderate user will ultimately have longer usage of the device compared to a heavy user.
About the BL-5F 950 mAh battery of the N96
Aw, gimme a break. The N95 and N96 both use the same battery, that's true. And the N96 lasts longer, that may also be true. BUT you can't tell me that the battery can last for more than two days if you take a couple of shots and listen to an album.
GSMArena has also shown the discovery of these new Li-Ion batteries, BUT the N96 WON'T have that type of batteries. So the battery is still its major drawback.
Waiting for a response...
im planning to buy a new phone. is this phone a good one? and how much is this?
the phone features impressed me but i hope that they try mastering one thing and not fool the eyes of people with all the features they would want i`d love to get a hand on one ofthey new phones but the more userfriendly phones nokia goood work
S60 Touch was cancelled due to DRM issues...
And N96 is equipped with n-gage v2 (v1 is a hardware)
Lot of people wished its a touch screen phone.Does anybody know when Nokia is planning to launch touch screen series and why they are behind other manufacturers in this regards.
Motorola is bringing out a touch screen phone later this year with roughly the same specs as this but with a 8mp camera and a better battery.
It offers TV also... cool. too bad it's not like real tv. after all it is just a phone
Surely this ll become hit. 18gb flash memory means nt an ordinary thing.
