I found out the most of the info on this phone from a friend of mine. He had got it from his girlfriend as a birthday present. And from the very second that I heard about his reactions on the phone I had been itching to write about it.
The name "Quartz" comes from the exterior casing of the phone.The previous model of the N96 used to have a black exterior casing too, which it has swapped for a slivery finished case.Its another feather in the N-series, but has a lot common with the other N-series phones, for example N95 and N95 8GB. The screen is a big one of 2.8 inches and a very high resolution. The phones screen as I perceived is a delight to work with. The high screen resolution and quality graphics makes viewing multimedia content, from videos, photos till the mini T.V a very pleasurable experience.
The operating system of the Nokia N96 Quartz is of the Symbian 9.3. Sometimes though the phone is getting hanged up. The Carl Zeiss lenses and 5MP camera are continued from the N95.Its is studded with the normal SMS and MMS functions along with GPS reciever. The large screen makes it really a treat when operating the phone for GPS or using it for multimedia viewing.
It has an on-board 128 MB RAM, hence making multi-tasking possible. The phone is also gifted with Wi-fi and Blutooth A2DP. As a result helping in data transfers and the obvious use of the large 16 GB space. As such no other disdvantages have been experienced, let see what comes up next!
Another advantage of the N96 Quartz is the 16 GB expandible memory with the Micro-SD card.The phone all in all, is quite a hot phone, but with a little firmware issues. However, it still carries the N-series goodwill and all its features, so should do well.
