Summary: Summary The Nokia N96 is an expensive phone that competes against many rival companies that have done their homework over the years to provide competitive products against this phone-dominating firm.
Some decent features, but too many issues to recommend

Summary: I was excited to try this phone out as I have been using Windows Mobile devices for awhile (currently using the AT&T Tilt) and never been completely satisfied with their performance. A 16 gig phone geared for music and video looked right up my alley.
Bad batt, super slow phone, more in other reviews!

Excerpt: Very good comments, it says all what I noticed in N96, and the proof is that I searched phrase “N96 Slow” in Google, I wished I have seen this before purchasing N96!Adding to the above; N96 is slow in photo browsing, sound is poorer than N95 but louder (which is annoying to good listener) and music...
Excerpt: i can't help but say that this is a waste of money. the battery really really blows. it doesn't last. and i tried so much to extend it. this phone guzzles all the juice in its battery pack. and plus it's slow so that makes it even more annoying.
Pros: 5 megapixel cam, dual cam (video call XD ), screen is bright and big
Cons: buttons are annoying, screen get scratched too easily, i get some strange static noises from time to time, the receiver could've been louder
A major diappointment in a phone. Definately not something I would recommend.

Excerpt: A disappointing result from Nokia. When this phone was first advertised I thought this was a new way to see a mobile what with high speed internet, iPlayer on the phone and a massive 16GB memory. However the hype was exactly that a hype.
