Nokia N96 Review
Despite the fact that the Nokia N96 is yet to be released on the third quarter of the year, some reviewers got the first dibs on the pre-production models. According to the Nokia N96 review online, the phone is lighter and slimmer than its predecessor which is the Nokia N95.
As compared to the other phones from the Nseries, the Nokia N96 has a better overall design quality. It has a 2-way slide just like the Nokia N95, but the features are much improved and sleeker-loooking.
Also, the first feature which has a great difference from the previous models is the internal memory. The Nokia N96 has 16GB of memory, twice the size of the Nokia N95 units.
The features of the Nokia N96 mobile phone includes:
- 3G and WLAN access
- GPS navigation
- Mobile television (depending on the network)
- Full HTML browser
- 5-Megapixel camera
- VGA camera in front for video calling
- Double LED flash
- 3G video calling
- Built-in motion sensor
The camera is the highlight of the Nokia N96. Aside from the improved resolution, it also uses the crystal clear Carl Zeiss optics Tessar lens. It comes complete with auto focus and auto exposure features. When you add to that the dual LED flash, this is one nifty camera and all-in-one phone to have.
If these features will all be incorporated in the actual Nokia N96 to be released on the third quarter of the year – then it is a definite improvement.
As compared to the previous designs of the Nokia Nseries phones, the Nokia N96 has a better camera resolution, more internal memory, as well as a lighter and sleeker design.
