  • Conclusion: Nokia has shovelled in functions at the expense of usability so much that we're surprised Apple doesn’t run, “I’m an N96, I’m an iPhone” ads. It’s the cutting-edge of mobile tech, for sure, but does it have to feel like quite such hard work?
  • Pros: Forget listing what the N96 has, it’s easier to say what it hasn’t got: a touchscreen and a kitchen sink. There isn’t another handset on the market that can match it for sheer power and specification. Highlights are the built-in iPlayer app for streaming and downloading shows (plus a DVB-H tuner for watching mobile telly abroad), and a first-class N-gage mode that boasts increasingly awesome games. The GPS comes with free Nokia Maps worldwide, the camera is decent (th...
  • Cons: With great power comes great awkwardness. The N96 blunders sluggishly between modes and suffers from a build quality that doesn’t even suggest Nokia’s pickiness, let alone N-series swank. HSDPA browsing is fast but not entirely seamless, despite the neat zooming features.

  • Excerpt: The latest round of Nokia Nseries smartphones have hit the US. Fondly termed the -3 models, these are the Nokia N96-3, N85-3 and N79-3. The -3 means that these are US models with US 3G on AT&T's 850/1900MHz bands and they're sold by Nokia stores here in the US and by US retailers like Dell, Best Buy and Buy.com. They carry US warranties but are sold unlocked without a contract.

  • Summary: Nokia has created a great phone � but they haven�t exceeded the standards they set in 2007 with the N95 8 GB � a fact which irritates us as reviewers. As history proves succession isn�t a guarantee of superiority. Check out both phones before you buy this � either way you cannot go wrong in terms of getting a superb phone.

Flagship N-Series handset.

  • Summary: Unlike its predecessor, the N96 isn't revolutionary but it remains a reasonable upgrade to the N95. It’s expensive and the DVB-H feature is useless in Australia, but as a multimedia device it is one of the better mobile phones on the market.
  • Pros: 2.8in display, 5-megapixel camera, HSDPA capable, built-in GPS, two-way slider, 16GB internal memory with microSD card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Cons: Sluggish user interface, plastic build, DVB-H capabilities currently useless in Australia, overpriced
