I personally own both the Nokia N95 8i and the N96 16g and have found that the major differences are styling differences. The N95 is more reliable though. The 96 is constantly freezing regardless of how often the software gets upgraded. Its head set they offer is horrid, do yourself a favour and throw it away immediately if you buy an N96. The picture quality on the N96 is relatively good during the day but horrid under terrible light. The flash light is relatively useless, unless you're less than a metre away from whatever you're taking a picture of.
All in all i'd say buying the N96 is a waste of money as its not that different to the 95 and isn't as reliable.
Best phone from NOKIA i like it especially with HSDPA and WIFI support.
Aram, 21 May 2009Get your self N95 8GB much better, Strong Case, Long last battery. and same functions. Trust me!Same functions????
Compare:N96 16Gb, N95 8Gb, N96 expandable up to 32Gb While N95 not, N96 DVB-H ready N95 nothing. N96 has decent audio quality N95 suffers from too much noise and lack of bass
N95 8G the only pros are: a bit better battery and a tad better camera
natasha, 21 May 2009please tell me some Head phone names... because i am very tensed because of sound.. and here i... moreI using the sony MDR-E808 which came with my old sony cd player. They sounds great, very loud and deep bass.
But I dont think you could find them at the market. Another solution is to buy a W series of SE phones like w-850 headset and use its headphones singly. They are so comfortable closed air design which deliver great dynamics deep bass and clear vocals. They also reduce the environment noise because of their closed air design.
Or go to sony website and choose a closed air headphones. I do belive all of them are better than the crap N-96 stock headphones.
AND REMEMBER the shorter the cable the better you are cause you wanna connect them to the remote.
I hope I could help you
have fun with your N96:)

With nokia you get a pair of shit phones (included in the box). When you've got the new phones you will get the best audio experience there is in a phone today. I've compared it to iphone, w902 etc. They haven't the same audio quality as nokias top models, but only with good phones..

The sound hardwares has improved definitely. Much better than the N95s. Less noise and much better bass then 95 8g. The problem is stock headphones are POS. threw them away and buy something better then you will notice how good it sounds
i heard that n96 that good as far as i know..,hez compare to n95...its graphics and stuff..and so it very slow + the LED flash light is no use..can any one tell me the whats the actual difference?? or perhaps the old firmware has some problems?? PM me at firstname.lastname@example.org
this phone though is for music, but ironically audio quality sucks balls!
Audio(handsfree) Sound of this handset is just normal (poor) i turned loudness on and set equalizer of Bass... but sound was still just a ******* :(
why? ( infact handsfree is orignal and i got that from sealed Packet of N 96 and same Audio handsfree sound of N95 8Gb.)
Are all users facing same problem? Reply plz
I upgraded mine from 12.043 to 20.050 version. not too much improvment except: Audio setting in the music player is gone which means you wont be able to set the loudness, balance and stereo widening! And the WLAN has got some issues(sometimes doesnt connect or find the access point.
I didnt find much improvment except the audio themes and some internet apps.
Please let us know if anybody has theese issues

China has been making Nokia phones a lot longer than Korea. China also makes many other manufacturer's phones. The remark about it being Chinese is just plain ignorance on your part. Grow up!
