Nokia N96 Physical Specifications Review Video
The design of the N96 is indisputable inspired by the duel sliding N95, however the N96 is a curvier, sleek and smaller phone than its predecessor. All the keys with the exception of the navigational direction pad and the multimedia key have now been made to sit flush with the body, the overall result from these minor design alteration is that N96 looks a whole heap more modern and sleeker then any N-Series phone to date. The phone now weighs only 125 grams and measures 103 x 55 x 18 mm.
The N96’s front panel is dominated by a 2.8 display which produces extremely vivid and colourful images and stays readable regardless of the light conditions which is a quality that is surprisingly hard to find.
The build quality of the phone is something left to be desired, the phones casing is constructed out of a glossy black and grey plastic and incorporates a few metal components , unfortunately the plastic components look and feel cheap and is a magnet for fingerprints. For a phone of such calibre and price it’s really disappointing that Nokia had decided to go with the plastic finish, it really takes a something away from the phone.
Finally while we are still on looks the back of the phone houses the 5 megapixel camera and a trippy kickstand that can be used to stand the phone on its own, it is a novelty but hey we like it .
