This phone is the ultimate multimedia companion! Iv updated two weeks ago anf boy oh boy its so smooth and handles my 4GB memory card quit well. Not to mention that im left with 600mb in my mass memory and 1.8mGB on my mem card ,the music player is quite smooth, much beter nd UI is smooth. I love this device with all my heat. Had it for 6months now and going strong. Selecting a mesage alert tone is a tedious process!!!!!!! How on earth do they expact me to scrol through 3815 files!
I just bought this phone from my previous N95 8Gb and it quite OK. The only things that let me down is:
1. The display looks less attractive than N95 8Gb
2. The performance is less than N95 8Gb (lag)

N96 Is the best mobile i ever used.i buyed it recently.my firmware version is 11.and its working fine.but soon i will update my firmware.and if you wanted to buy this phone just buy it.without any confusion.it's better than N85 and Innov8...............N96 Roxxx
Nokia phones are the best! The features are amazing. But the UI is so damn ugly. It looks so outdated. When will nokia update their UI. It's so old already.

N96owner, 01 Jun 2009Anybody knows how much Phone Memory(C)is needed to run Maps 3.0? If yes, tell me. thanksI want to answer your questions but its not with me yet my n96..I dont care what anyone else has and maybe n96 is to everyones favour like i did not get on with n85..We are however all in the nokia/symbian team so if i need help or if other apps arrive i can just go into other n-series forums cause their all the same give or take h/ware differences..I dont see a war i see us all on the same side and i know that symbian is the only gauranteed o/s that will survive until 2013..

Anybody knows how much Phone Memory(C)is needed to run Maps 3.0? If yes, tell me. thanks
i think the n96 is better than n95 8gb.if a user has a problem with the n96 they should upgrade its fimware.the n96 rocks way better than n95 8gb
n96 users, 31 May 2009In term of design definintely N95 8Gb win and in term of storage capacity can say N96(extendab... moreIt does have video accelarator chip that handles large bit rate files of 5mb/s whilst conserving battery power and handles some other video codecs..The n96 also has a DSP chip thats is supposed to enhance quality and conserve battery power,,however,,until i get n96 cannot comment on audio quality..Also n96 has video stabiliser that was used in nokias n80..
In term of design definintely N95 8Gb win and in term of storage capacity can say N96(extendable to 32Gb).Both phone has dual processors and 128Mb RAM just that N96 does not have graphics accelerators. I bought it because it's a newer version of N95 8Gb and my comments is 4.7 out of 5 since im a nokia fans.
brynn, 31 May 2009Thats 2 votes for s/e k750i,,it was a miniature marvel..
Ive held dummy omnia hd and it is ... moreI agree the K750i is just awesome
I'm the same Dani who has been arguing with nick and allan, now it seems the forums have calmed down..
and my previous K850i's touch buttons were perfect, no problems at all ..
and yes i think i'l like touchscreen phones but i will keep my N95 8GB
I personally think the iPhone is the best touchscreen phone there is as its perfect ..
Anyone who buys this phone is just a Nokia fan. Garbage phone, garbage performance, high fault rate only those who like nokia would buy it...
Dani, 31 May 2009I'v personally tested the N96 and i think still the N95 8GB is better to use mainly becuase i... moreThats 2 votes for s/e k750i,,it was a miniature marvel..
Ive held dummy omnia hd and it is big but dont get it on orange..I am going to predict that you will not like touchscreen in the end but may be wrong...
Are you the Dani thats beeing arguing with allan and nick in these forums for years ha ha..I find it good when a good topic starts and off goes everyone defending their own brand..The forums have gone a bit stale but when nokia bring out their 8mp fone all the 8mp shootouts will begin and another set of wars will start..The only real argument i have not seen yet is the buttons against touchscreen one ,,it seems people are one or the other but i did like the half touchscreen of the s/e k850i..
With the lack of money this xmas i can see it being a time when companys will give it their all as its could spell the end for some companys..Lets see how things pan out...
n96 battery timing is not good. and n95 simple also because both have same battery BL-5F. one an half hour video you can watch only from full battery. any way n95 8gb has good battery timing with good speed.
brynn, 31 May 2009Is that possible because lets take the samsung d600, it was one gorgeous soap bar fone but its... moreI'v personally tested the N96 and i think still the N95 8GB is better to use mainly becuase its firmware is mature and its build is more solid..
and yeah i agree N96 is just like the original N95-1 and thats why i'v stepped back from the N95-1 and now N96 ..
this is another reason why i'd stay with my N95 8GB
Since i'v owned most of the SE K-Series such as a K810i, K850i i would get the C905
the best phones i'v had are K750i, K800i, Nokia 6230, 6230i, SE W810i SE have made the W902 as a good upgrade from W810i and Nokia have released the 6700 as a upgrade to 6300
I want a touchscreen phone next and i really want a iPhone 3G but i'l wait for the new iPhone HD
Omnia HD i like to
