nokia has always had a good reputation when it came to battery life but as of lately the quality the use to offer has dropped. i like the look of the new n95 though or n96 whichever they decide to call it. It kinda look like they where going for an iphone look but maybe they should have added some additional features like touch screen or QWERTY keyboard. Again love the look of the new n95.
n96 is great but the battery capacity suckz big time . nokia should make a new n96 version with bigger battery capacity and much lager screen maybe about 3inchs
duel led allows users to take videos in low light conditions, but for photo capturing the N82 will still be the better solution with a Xenon light.
Nokia will always give something and take something away in every phone model...
i think nokia just innovate thier phone they just renew the features of cellphone or just the same features but diff. unit cause if you can notice their phones is just the same just "INNOVATING"
Does anyone know if the n96 has an ambient light sensor? Because it is one of my favorite features on the n95. I thought the small sensor near the earpiece was the sensor but it is actually the secondary camera. There is no mention of such a feature in the official specification.
Also, the phone has a built in tv tuner but as far as i'm aware lots of countries do not broadcast dvb-h signals yet (uk gets them in 2012) so this will be a wasted function. Is this correct?
The fact the n96 has a dual led instead of a xenon flash is a positive thing as it will give a near xenon camera flash but can also be used for video. But a torch/flash light feature would be handy and easy to implement but there is no mention of it in the specs. Maybe the LEDs will be accessible for symbian software this time. Then we can download a torch app.
give me this phone spec in an n810 form factor (touch screen, qwerty, and dual card slot)
another dreamy feature would be full microsoft office, onenote and outlook mobile applications.
either way, i'm gettin' it.
Did you notice:
DVB-H TV broadcast receiver.
128MB RAM, 256MB storage.
That's a hell of improvement if you know!
This phone is amazing, although it seems to be a "upgraded n95 8gb", it is still top of the line and is a piece of art. This phone, is just a hint of things to come from nokia(i.e: the nokia n98). One great piece of technological achievement from nokia again, keep up the great work. Expecting to purchase this summer from wherever i can get it from.
I have a nokia n95 8 gb and i change it when i found :
- battery minimum 1500
- a 3,0 touch screen
- windows mobile xx the future,
the next nokia smartphone i think is this!!
1. N95, 2. N95 8GB, 3. N95 16GB hahaha lolz this is not a creativity this called enhancement only in space/capacity.
i have an n95 8gb and honestly i wouldn't upgrade even if someone swapped my used one with a new n96. The talk time is nearly half that of the n95 8gb to top things off.
Though i gotta say, the tv tuner does seem tempting.
Maybe wait until they release yet another reiteration which improves battery life(bigger battery?).
It would have been the perfect phone if it had a better them lousy 240x320 screen. At least 352x416 like my N80.
that won't help. coz ppl will use internet, watch video, make 3g calls, play 3d games.. all consume lots of power. and this ph dun have light sensor(it is not necessary indeed). But I wont complain abt battery. coz I will charge every night b4 sleep. yeah.. thats all u need to do.
People People people!!!! maybe some of you do this but for yal who complain about battery life.... Dim your light sensor, set your power saver time-out to about 10 or 15 seconds, and set your light time-out to 10 or 15 seconds and you will be amazed at how long your Nseries device will last. Most Nokia fanatics like myself know that Nokia's default settings for the lights are high, not low. lower it, save battery time... simple
It's the best phone ever!!! any body that thinks it is bad must be blind or retarded!
