Nokia N96 (unlocked)

CNET
10 May 2009
  • Summary: Though the Nokia N96 is a powerful all-in-one smartphone with an impressive amount of user storage, it's not a significant upgrade to the N95 and is outdone by new devices coming to market, including the Nokia N97.
  • Pros: The Nokia N96 features 16GB of storage and advanced multimedia features, including a 5-megapixel camera. The smartphone also has integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support.
  • Cons: The N96 froze on a couple of occasions and can sometimes be sluggish. Nokia's Ovi services aren't fully activated in North America, so you can't take advantage of those extra capabilities. It's also expensive.

  • Excerpt: It's very difficult to recreate the magic of an original product like the N95. The N96 reminds me heavily of Ridley Scott's Alien (1979), whose sequels couldn't successfully match the grandeur of the original story line. Nokia tried it with the N95 8GB, and although the enhanced space and battery life ensured it wasn't a failure, constant comparison with its predecessor forced a critical scrutiny from everyone.

Nokia N96 Review: In Depth

Recombu
11 April 2009
  • Excerpt: This highly anticipated successor to the Nokia N95 is packed with features but is it what we've been waiting for? Some of the improvements look great on paper but we were keen to get our hands on it to see if it delivered a better experience than the N95. What we like If you like the N95 then you'll like the N96 because it's practically the same phone. There's HSDPA (3.5G), Wi-Fi, GPS and a 5-megapixel camera that takes as good pictures as the N95's.

Nokia N96 Review

Digitaltrends
16 February 2009
  • Conclusion: The N96 is bursting at the seams with potential, and the hot hardware to make it happen. But without a full QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen, or even the feel of a nice phone, it has a hard time justifying its lofty $895 price tag. This being the case, we would recommend that all but the most diehard fans of Symbian pass on the N96 in its unlocked form, unless a major U.S. carrier picks it up in the near future and begins offering a major subsidy.
  • Pros: Fast OS; large storage capacity; wide multimedia options; respectable camera
  • Cons: Stratospheric price; no touchscreen; no QWERTY keyboard; slightly obtuse operating system; nonstandard power and data jacks; surprisingly poor build quality

Test: Nokia N96

Gamereactor
21 October 2008
  • Conclusion: N96 bygger videre på det design vi efterhånden har set på de fleste af finnernes topmodeller det seneste års tid, N81 og lignende, og har kun slidefunktionen til fælles med forgængeren N95. Hele fronten er flad, og kun firvejstasten stikker en smule op fra den sorte overflade. Der er dog knapper gemt under overfladen, og de lyser op når de skal bruges. Overfladen kan slides både op og ned, og afslører henholdsvis tastatur i bunden, og multimedieknapper i toppen.
  • Pros: Mange funktioner, GPS'en, 16GB lagerplads
  • Cons: Prisen, designet, byggekvaliteten

Nokia N96 Erfahrungsbericht

telefon-treff.de
15 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Mit dem Nokia N96 bekommt man ein relativ gut verarbeitetes Handy. Bei dieser Preisklasse sollte es aber doch etwas besser verarbeitet sein. Für mich bringt das Gerät alle Funktionen (wie beim E90) nur in einem kompakteren Gehäuse mit. Die Navigation läuft super. Der Fix bei Maps ist in ca. 10 sek. da. Das einzigste was mir das Bild trübt ist der Akku. Dieser hätte mindestens wie beim E71 1500mAH haben sollen. DVB-H ist noch nicht in allen Ländern verfügbar.
