animegic, 28 Apr 2010okay this N96 is very strong with multimedia, perhaps the last multimedia phone made by nokia ... moreAre you new with symbian? All latest ph0ne.latest fr0m n95 8gb even n81 d0nt have pencil key. BuT still you can do a copy paste usng hash key '#'
at last, nokia n8 reveald! Iam dying to get this awesome phone. Iam using n96 and hope maybe i will upgrade to n8 soon! =D
haha, people. stop comparing the n95 8gb with the n96. MY N900 IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!! and i used to have a n95 8gb. but i never used a n96 before, so i can't really tell whether the n95 8gb is better or the n96. but one thing for sure, n900 is much better than these two phones put together.
n96=n958gb but n96 is more durable. and price 300 euro is ok. good job nokia
okay this N96 is very strong with multimedia, perhaps the last multimedia phone made by nokia which not have touchscreen/qwerty, because it appear that nokia will continously using touchscreen/qwerty for the next phone they released.did it worthy to buy it? for me it YES
even im prefer this phone than iphone 3GS
great, can play mp4,16 gb memory awesome!,even this N96 has a same level with nokia xpressmusic version, awesome sound, great camera,and so many more
BUT it have 3 fatal weakness, based in my experience using it
- arm quite slow, slower than 5800,n95 8 gb,etc
- lack battery, if you using continously watching mp4,wifi,dvtb you will ended up charge the battery 2x/day
-THE MOST LACK POINT OF tHIS PHONE= no edit button, button which "pen" image in N95/7610/ other symbian phone
it a bigger loser for N96, you cannot copy and paste some document
Aline Swtichboards , 20 Apr 2010this phone is hopeless i've taken the phone to nokia care centre for a couple times due to t... moretry to change the battery, first i have same problem with you but after i change the battery it work normal again
zac, 23 Apr 2010N95 8gb is better"N95 8gb is better"
But why is it better? =)
I have both, and i like them both. N95 8GB is truly a masterpiece, but its not that much faster, and not really better.
I prefer N96 because its slimmer and design is more up-to-date, and it has 16GB memory AND a memory card slot. Keypad is ok on both, N95 8GB feels more solid and doesnt easily get a slack, sliding mechanism is excellent and solid. Now thats a problem with N96 but its not a big deal, its not like its falling off.
For some maybe the infrared on N95 8GB is important, but noone would ever use it instead of bluetooth so whats the chance of you ever using it?
A weird thing with N95 8GB is the 3.5mm Audio/TV jack, what is it doing there on the left side??? N96 has the jack on top where all mp3 phones should have it.
The gallery button of N95 8GB is nice! But the keylock switch of N96 is also nice.. (even if it has a very bad location)
And this is important... Video light! N96 is much better for video recording, both because of more memory and the dual LED flash/videolight. Imagine if your girlfriend agree to some private video session and there is not enough light, or shes shy to turn on the light, or you ran out of storage space? Heheh, bad example? But it could happen, and that day N96 would be your savior! =D
I had a N95 8GB last year. Sold it a few months back. Just bought N96 last week. Got to say that the N95 8GB is still abit faster. Battery life in both of them is the same. I like the N96's Design it's more modern and stylish and also the 16GB and the Camera is just as good.
It's just as good as the N95 8GB but with a newer design and more memory. I've also got a 8GB SD in mine so it has a wopping 24GB.
The speed is still quite fast. I am satisfied. I just don't want a N97
I will watch Barcelona versus Inter millan live at Camp Nou on my Nokia N96. Hope GOD help Barcelona to win and qualify to the UEFA Champions League final to be held at Madrid.
Sunday, 23 Apr 2010Please everybody i want buy the phone N96 and i don't know wether is good or not good. So i wa... moreit s a good phone with amazing facilities...i fully satisfied with it expect screen clarity...bt that s a minor thing..any way supr dupr phone
I also have Nokia N96 and I can tell that I am satisfied.The phone works perfect but still N95 8GB is a little bit faster but N96 is also pretty fast.Nokia N96 is great :D
its undescribeable..........wow wat a cell.....if u hav dis den no need of a computer..its gr8 really......i hav used it.....it;s superb!!!!!!
That depends, if you are familiar with the n95 model you have to know that n96 is not a great step forward. If you want a phone that is good on the multimedia segment , on entertainment then n96 might be a choise. It depends also on the price that you are going to pay, if you can buy it for 250-300 euro then it's worth it. More then that it's not. On the multimedia segment there are also many phones ( satio,omnia hd ) better then n96 and more expensive too. Check out the features of every phone before deciding which one you are going to buy.
Please everybody i want buy the phone N96 and i don't know wether is good or not good. So i want reply from any body please
And at nokia centre they could not solve this problem? That means they are not to good at their job..... When i had this problem i took the phone to a service and they repaired it in half an hour for around 10 euros. That was about a year ago and i don't remember what problem they told me the phone had . If i find out more i am goind to let you know.
