Summary: Why did I buy this phone? I had a Nokia N81, I really liked it. I wanted something similar, but a little bit better and a little money. It was the best option. I like Symbian, although it is a little brake. Specifically, my phone build quality is poor and I was expecting a better quality of LCD. Of course the phone does not compare to the new models, but I'm used to my old Nokia N81 and didn't want to change something. Overall, I like this phone.
Summary: I bought the phone for a gift so I can not know any information about Nokia n96. For me is a little bit uncomfortable because i liked much more touch screen. I hear a lot of good news about this phone.
Excerpt: This is the best nokia phone ever released on Symbian S60v3. SPEED: GOOD! CAMERA: Great! DESIGN: Not so much because its slider type and slider type phones always suffer from Flex problems. the battery life is not so much pleasing(or maybe my problem) But this is the BEST nokia phone i ever used!
Pros: Camera, Call quality, Best S60v3 phone, Best phone for music playing!, Even supports DIVX movies!
Cons: Battery, Slider type design, not so much good housing
Summary: Honestly what is they really left to say about a nokia phone expecially the nseries phones they have proven they cant handle be thrown(lol) and have thing thrown at them excellent phones totally excellent
Summary: Very good phone, waaaaayy better than any black berry I ever tried, better than androind because you don't need to have a data plan in order to use all the apps. I mean the wifi IS REAL is not just and ornament. A lot of apps from europe and asia (remember the US is not the only country in the world), java compatible so a lot of games too. Only thing N95 (I have this too) is faster than this model I don't know why.
Maybe the best N-Series phone, and that's saying a lot

Summary: I really like the Nokia N96. Having owned and inspected several other members of the Nokia N-Series family, the N96 is definitely my favorite so far. The quality of the construction of the phone is excellent. It's sturdy, the slide and buttons are smooth, and the screen is bright and solid. The functionality of the phone is also impressive as is the ease of use. This is exactly what I've come to expect fron Nokia and why I consider myself a loyal Nokia user.
