Apple Iphone vs Nokia N96

Now that each and every one is familiar with Apple Iphone, lets take closer look at its competitor Nokia N96. Since the launch of Iphone there has been many discrepancies and negative reviews from its users but i must say its is a very stylish and vibrant cell phone one can ever find till date. But as far as features and its comparison with its rival N96 is concerned I guess N96 leads its fanclub.

Lets Compare them:

Apple Iphone positive points vs N96 :

  • Operating System (Mac OS X) is better then Symbian.

  • Browser (safari).

  • Email (displays HTML-Rich, Push IMAP Yahoo, IMAP/POP3).

  • Music Player (iTunes).

  • Touchscreen with multitouch sensors.

  • Processor Speed of 620 MHz better then N96 ( 264 MHz ).

  • Large Screen Size.

  • Battery Talktime of 8hrs and Playback of 24hrs.

  • Spell Checker present which N96 does not have.

  • Proximity Sensor (Turns screen off when put up to your ear) again which N96 lacks.

  • Threaded SMS which N96 lacks.

Nokia N96 positive points vs Apple Iphone:

  • 5 Mega Pixels Camera

  • Dual Led Flash

  • Mobile TV i.e. DVB-H

  • Memory expansion slot ,MICRO SD

  • Replaceable battery which Iphone lacks

  • MMS, IM, Video calling, Video Capture, Voip are features which iPhone doesn't have

  • User can install 3rd Party softwares whereas in Iphone you can not.

  • Video Output to TV

  • Supports Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP)

  • Comes unlocked that is not locked to carrier.

Common Points:

  • Both Comes with 8/16 GB variant

  • Both have Youtube application in common

  • Both have ambient light sensor

If reviews, user-friendly and smooth operation are to be considered , Votes are in lead for N96 but this does not mean iPhone sucks.!
Apple Iphone has its different fan support.

Again I would rate Apple iPhone 4.3 / 5 and Nokia N96 4.6 / 5.
