N96 is so popular for 2 reasons:

  • it’s a Nokia, which means a good reliability
  • it has a great features list.

Nokia N96 features

  • it is a sophiscated dual slide camera phone. It has a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a Tessar lens. The camera has auto focus with a range from 10 cm to infinity and auto-exposure.
  • built-in GPS receiver. The Nokia N96 has a built-in GPS receiver, with support for assisted GPS (A-GPS), and free downloadable maps of over 150 countries.

The N96 is quite large at 103 x 55 x 18mm, but this is mainly due to the fact it has to house the large 2.8 inch QVGA display.

A notable improvement is the capacity of the N96. The N96 has 16GB of internal memory as well as a microSDHC slot and with card currently available up to 8GB this means you can increase capacity to 24GB.

Nokia N96 is enriched with a good collection of downloadable music from Nokia Music Store and other online music sites. Users can sync their PCs and mobile libraries via high-speed USB connectivity.

Video playback is up to 5 hours and music playback is up to 14 hours on a single charge. The TV playback on a single charge is a bit less at 4 hours.

  6. Sim Only Contract Deals

    After waiting so eagerly for UK release, I have finally got my hands on one. I don’t think its all that brilliant and it has been a bit overrated. Its just a cross between the N81 and the N95. The one thing I really like is the screen adopts and changes according to how you hold the phone. It sense when the phone is held upright or sideways. I think the N97 will be a lot better… I hope.

  7. Impressive but i feel i am happy with my I-phone.
    It has my interesting features and the look itself it so cool, comes very handy 🙂
