In my opinion nothing much has changed for this n96. It is just a black 16GB N95. What nokia needs to work on is improving the problem with the poor battery life. Every single feature that the N96 has i already have on my N95 and i don't need 16GB of memory. What i want is a longer battery life and i higher camera if anything. Cool looking phone but for a new release i'm gonna have to give it a low ratings and i'm a nokia fan. I have a classic N95. Sorry but better luck.
it is greater than N95 in essential features as Ram 128mb compared to about 45mb in N95. I think that the cpu is better but I dont know its speed. What about its price?
The phone is ok, BUT it has a very shitty battery life. What can 1 do with just 3h talk time??? for a high end phone like this...it is rubbish.
Its the same as the nokia n95 8gb but with double the memory the shape is quite good. not a very high improvment.
The new name for it shoulbe N96-RIP. Rip off for wat u are going to pay for this device and the battery life is going to be poor.
yah... this phone has compiled all the features that a cell phone should have. it's no more a cell phone now!!! a new name should be given to these kind of devices!! guess!! Nokia-Jack off All Trade (N-JAT)
If anyone is worried about scratching the camera lens just cut a screen protector to fit the lens. I did this and is works just a good with it as with out it.
The Nokia N96 DOES have Navi Wheel!!!
See a full preview here
GUYS!!... this thing has a TV reciever in it... can only imaging what this phone can do...
hey doods.. this ph got accelerometer to detect screen rotation. I saw it on one of the n96 videos from youtube. and navi wheel looks cool and easy to browse web i think. Can't complain too much man. Its the best phone out there. But xenon is a big miss. Battery? no prob. charge every night while sleep. thats it..
one question it got both d-pad multimedia keys and slide multimedia keys?
No touch screen, same 2.8 screen as N95 8GB. What is Nokia doing here? Trying to con more $$$ from customers?
