N96 Downsides:

1. Nokia have removed the VOIP client, so Truphone and some other popular internet telephone services don't work.
2. Nokia have removed the graphics co-processor, so 3D games (Quake etc) either don't work or screen updates are very slow.
3. Symbian 9.1 5th Edition - lots of 3rd edition apps are not compatible.
4. Battery life is terrible
5. With the latest V12 firmward, you need to reboot every few days as the GUI slows to a crawl.

I sold my N96 on eBay and bought an N82 as it's miles better than the N96.
i actually had a 8gb card in my n95 for over 6months, but honestly i never ever had more than 5gb worth of data on it. what i am trying to say is that i didnt upgrade because of the n96s 16gb memory. the reason why i moved to n96 is because i got it for free from my employer

i would have never bought it if it were my money. only thing that i like about it is the bigger display and the fact that it "feels and looks" more expensive than the n95
