Battery life: one word - IMPRESSED. I took the phone off charge at 6:30 this morning, 16.5 hours later the low battery warning has just come on, during this time:
i) Approx 1 Hour playing YouTube Videos using the S60 browser through 3.5G
ii) Approx 1 Hour general Web Surfing using both Wifi and 3.5G
iii) Approx 1 hour mucking about with settings and navigating menus, etc.
iv) Setup Profimail and synced my IMAP account, 3,200 Emails, approx 400MB using Wifi, 3.5G and GPRS!
v) Downloaded the AAS Podcast, approx 20MB directly on the N96, and played the file using a stereo Bluetooth headset
:cool:

Yap quite impressive.. but still comparing with my black beast... i will tell you about n95 8gb backup(firmware 20 going to be 30 today :D).. morning full charged... while going to office i play n-gage for half an hr to 45 mins.. in office whole day my mobile is in sync with microsoft exchange server through wifi(sync interval is 15 mins) :D(in between i listen to songs also.. i use nokia BH-501) then in evening when i return back say at 7PM i do browse and play games again for an hr..
Returned home...then install software(atleast one.. you know symbian world rocks), may be followed by some ROM MOds etc..(if you know connecting through USB also battery drains..) Till now my phone stays alive and only maybe i or 2 level of signal is down.. I do more... So am really thinking or shall i wait for something new to come...

What i dont like about n-95 8gb is slow memory access when connected to usb and the body colour gets off easily at the bottom of the device and the 4 ways key(Seems nokia dont use weather coated Asian paints)

I request anybody who buy the n96, please tell us what is the audio quality like with respect to phones like n91.

Although I haven't heard it yet, from what I read so far, N96's audio quality is better than N95 8gb (particularly the bass) but not as good as that of the N91 or the N81 (in terms of loudness, etc).

Right off the assembly line
these r intsnt apps, how's video playback quality?

I recently got my n96 saw few videos on it .picture quality is great to my expectation. One thing more I like its screen its auto-adjustment to the brightness levels depending on the environmental lighting. In one of my Samsung i8510 screen is not that good, colors are less natural and its also less resistant to sunlight light.
 
I feel spending 36K for a phoen which doesnt even have a touchscreen is kinda waste!
Better options are Samsung Omnia or HTC Touch Diamond, all Rs10,000 cheaper, with Larger (Touch) screen, Windows Mobile 6.1 (more powerfull applications) and ultimate Whizzbang features.

Moreover, n96 looks so much like n81

it's been exactly a month since i bought n96 nd i am seriously feel that there are lot of misconceptions abt the fone ..

the battery life is amazing, its fast, it's a pleasure to browse esp in landscape mode and i have tons of n-gage titles saved in it.

if u r looking for music, gaming and storage, then this is one of the best choices ..

btw.. any one played n-gage titles on n-96? its' amazing :cool::D
