Hi all,

As the title says.

Vodafone are trying to stray us away from a storm saying N96 worth more

they are both same proice plan, so which is better?

Advice welcome

i personally think the storm looks better. i think the n96 looks abit cheap to be honest. Other than that tho i wudnt know which one is actually better.

It's really strange.

We are more inclined to the storm but Vodafone seem astounded that we don't want an N96 for same tarriff.

I believe it's becuase they have limited stock of blackberry and loads of N96.

the blackberry storm looks fairly nice and admittedly better than the n96 however we have a few at work and then arent very good, the scrolling of the screen is flakey at best its not very smooth esp compared to the iphone, also its a real pain to type on as even though its touch screen you have to physically press the screen which is essentially a big button for each key stroke which is really annoying and means that you cant type as fast. hope this helps

Yeah it is thanks

Trouble is, I guess, the n96 is just a minor upgrade on the n95, and anyone with an n95 will be so frustrated with its battery life and lousy internet capabilities that they won't want an n96, especially at the hefty premium Nokia want to charge for it.

My husband has the N96 with vodafone and loves it. The gps on it is at street level too which is a great improvement on the N95

There's a lot of complaints about the Storm, check Vodafone's forum at forum.vodafone.co.uk

The N96 got off to a rough start but as firmware updates are coming it seems to be settling down and becoming a more stable phone.
