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!

Hy Guys, i have been planning to buy N96 from quite long, finally the time has come. But after reading the comments now i'm a bit confused. Please advise what should i do?
the worst phone i ever had..the 16 gb memory is jst useless.once u used 4 gb or 2gb the fone starts stucking n sometimes all ur data is erased itself.so guys anybody wants 2 buy this fone dare u put ur important data n da fone coz ur gona regret it later on.itz an experiance of 6 people who r having the same problem.just watch t n dont waste ur money for sumthing not worth t.thanxxxxx!!!
i have this phone, i had n95 8gb, n95, 5800 xpress music and samusng innov8 and i can easily say that this phone is a piece of plastic in ur hands, it's a nokia n95 8gb with a fecelift, biger memory, some cheap theme effects and maby louder speakers. but in build quality it's 0, camera nothing new, the SLIDE is very very bad after some time, you can fel it move realy ugly for a phone this expensive... and many many more things that are just made so that nokia got out a "new" phone so that the nokia fan-geeks will go an get it quickly. in my oppinion, from all the phones that i tried, and belive me they were some, the SAMSUNG INNOV8 realy was breath taking. I'm not a samsung fan, i realy like nokia phones(or liked0 but the new generation phones, aspecialy the n96 have no "soul" their just made so that somewhone will buy them. WERY POOR PHONE in matter of price/quality ratio. trully dissapointing to see a nokia phone as lame as the n96...SONYERICSSON asd SAMUSNG are catching ground realy fast...
It has a Slower CPU than the N95 8GIG, There is no 3D Accelerator & the battery is a Lower Capacity than the Original N95, So This mobile should have been called a Nokia N94 instead of N96.
Alan, 04 Jun 2009how do you check what software version is on ur fone??ITS done by pressing:
star key,,hash key,, then 4 noughts,,then hash key..
When i take off battery cover on top right of fone is gold coloured microswitch,,whats that for..thanx.
The sound quality is excellent and using senheiser cx300 headfones cannot go above 75 volume cause it hurts so its loud..ITS lot better at version 20 and can be a little slow in some functions but where talking a few seconds not hours..I think it sounds better than 5800 but people want different sounds so its up to individual..
rocky, 30 May 2009seems n96 has battery life problems, low audio qualiy,and gets stuck.....is it so....pls comme... morei don't see anything wrong with this phone why r u guys so negative like this.i mean i heard this phone freezez but u need to update it,but if u say the audio quality is bad maybe u're ironic..cuz the sound is so loud and the battery life is just like n71 exactly it's not poor at all...get life plz :P
hey i bought dis fone 2day n dis fone is rellll slow....plz tel me wat 2 do plzzzz!!!
