Hi guys. I bought this for my wife. use to work with telco co doing testing all new phone models. I really think it is not worth of money. Nokia is trying to put everything in a very low tech spec phone. look and feels good, size good. However, for such a 'looks great' phone with huge space, it can't handle extra apps. processor very low, battery life short, navigation button not good, antenna not very good (very low coverage compare to other phone). Overall, I'll say Nokia shouldn't release this phone at all.
Hi folks if your phone is slow just do a firmware update. Hope this hellps.
N96 is a very good phone. If you have a negative feedback about it.try to read the specs before you post.Others don't know how to use cellphone.And do not compare this phone to the other model that have different specs.
The N96 is a great phone with fast boot time and absolutely no lag. The huge storage is great and so is the huge screen. The only gripe I have against it is the camera, which pales in comparison to the N82's, especially in night shots.
Its one of the best converged devices in the market today.my n85 doesn't freeze or hang. Its even more better thn my n96 w/c i sold last week and far better thn my n95.it is the best unit i had so far. I also ownd touchscreen phnes like 5800 nd omnia.but i guess thts nt the thng for me.i still choose to use n85.its the best.i highly recommend ths phone.
i feel this hp is good i don't have any problem with it lah is so good that perfect i feel is worth.they said battery iss terrible of it weak if u use often my without using last 3 to 4 days.hang is not a problem because if u overload it than only it begin to hang actually.my does not hang because i use only 4gb.i think is worth buying but i can tell u is better than n95 8gb even the sound.

first of all i want to talk about the camera.in this 5Mp camera is thre.from this we get good photogaphs.
I don't think it's a really good phone.I heard bad things about it : poor battery,lagging problems and lack of a 3d accelerator chip.I had to choose between a N96 and N85 and I tell you,N85 is way better!
