Summary: I bought 2 N96 for my Dad and Uncle. I have never seen a worst product like this. 1. First of all its used phone and not properly packed. 2. Dint find any earpiece in the box. 3. Both Phone worked only for one month and not detecting any sim and totally waste. 4. The product is from hongkong and i dunno whether its original Nokia or china made. 5. Last but not least, i lost 250 bugs, my patience and lot... Stay away from EBay electronic products and save your money.
Excerpt: this phone is junk. it's not better than the N95 and it's slow. it lacks video acceleration. video recording is slow and choppy sometimes. the speakers aren't that loud. the reception the phones gets is poor. the battery dies really fast.
Nokia N96 Slowest and Most Expensive Nokia in the world
26 February 2009
Summary: I purchased this phone and used it extensively. The new Symbian OS does not give you any permission to install the software that you want, so unless you have weeks to spend searching the net for a solution or an advanced computer engineering degree you will pay big bucks for the applications. Free is not something applying to this phone. GPS the offline navigation is only awailable from Nokia Maps and that for a very limited region and for a lot of money.

Excerpt: i can easily understand why people here hate this phone. it's a load of junk. nokia isn't all that great to begin with. first of the wifi in this unit is very slow and short ranged, not only that under heavy data transfer load it fails miserably and restarts. the phone itself can't even handle itself. it's not worth the money and not worth having.
Excerpt: this phone lacks power. it's slow and that's annoying. when taking a picture the processing time is forever. and when starting up the vid cam that also takes forever. this phone is no gem. it's not even worth money you pay for it.
