I do not understand if the IPHONE 3GS is so much better than the NOKIA N97 then why the average rating for the iphone3gs is so much more lower than that of the n97 here on gsmarena ??????????????

I also use Skype on my iPhone, is that working with the N97 or are you stuck with third parties like Fring?
What's with the stupid charger, half the micro USB chargers available for phone's don't work with the N97, is Nokia using a non standard voltage or what?
Overall I've found the N97 to be exceedingly annoying to use, the menu's are all over the place, the screen is not that responsive, it often freezes, sometimes in the middle of a call, the reception isn't that great, the keyboard is annoying with the way it's laid out, the E75 one is better.

I have a nokia n97 and use my old iphone 3g as a secondary phone. The n97 is the more complete phone, however in terms of touchscreen and overall 'feel' the iphone is better. The general user experience is smoother, while the n97's is sometimes blotchy and a bit slower. I do like the resistive screen, it is responsive and it's handy to be able to use my fingernail or stylus, but the screen on the iphone is faster and gives a better overall experience. Nokia are playing catch-up in the smartphone touch screen market - iirc the 5800 released only this year was their first touch screen phone. Im sure they'll get it right eventually...they're not the biggest cell phone company in the world for nothing.

What's your point, the world has changed a lot in two years.
iphone is a good device but not the best. However,

As for iPhone, the satisfaction isn't so great as the hype made around the device.
It's the strong fan-base:
And some site that are well paid by apple to give positive reviews. By some, I mean a ton. You can easily find missing features say N900, the phone with the least no-no's, but try the same for apple...
There are a lot of unobjective reviews.
And me as a person... If I like something, I rarely return back or give feedback of how "cool" it is...
I might not be the only one.

So yes, Nokia is much better than Motorola or SE or Samsung for me :)

Symbia... moreNokia's 4 OSes:
1) Series 30
2) Series 40
3) Symbian OS
4) Linux (for Nokia N810, for example).
If you consider 30 and 40 as one, then now Nokia internally tests Windows Mobile for a release with a new phone model. But all this discussion is useless, unless we see what people who are stupid enough to buy iPhone think compared with people who are just as stupid (if we maintain objective look) to buy other phones. Because phones are for people, and people vote with their money. And this "glued together" phone wins hands down in almost all surveys. Just one:
So, if you want to count features, leave iPhone area and save your money ;) If you want to be satisfied, think before you do.
I look from human's perspective, not geek's, so we will never find common language anyway.

You sa... moreI'm sorry to dissapoint you but nokia has two OSes of wich the first one is symbian.
Symbian't more stupid brother, UIQ had touch since p800.
UIQ went broke, symbian went open source, UIQ (sony & motorolla) joined the symbian foundation - nokia does have the touch patents before the foundation.
As for multitouch, nokia has it both on capacitative and resistive, thing that apple can only dream (steal) of.
You'll have to be more precise for me to answer futher.
As for 3GS, it might have the engine under the hood but it doesn't have the OS to run it, hence in terms of functionality 5800 is wayy above - really depends on what your needs are, if not to high any mght do.
Nokia has the S40 range because there still are people who use phones to talk, nothing sophisticated. Why make them pay so much for what they don't need.
As for the mobile computer... symbian was designed and created for that and that's why it peats iphone i every aspect of fuctionality and pattery time.
N900 is for the enthusiasts only and it's rather a UMPC with a phone.
iPhone on the other hand... it's the iPod, combined with a phone... preeety low-end.
Noone's bothered for what iphone is, it's bothersome how it's advertised.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970> Nokia is not using ANY apple patents because apple doesn't have telephony patents.
You said it all. Nokia uses Apple's interface patents, not telephony patents, because iPhone is more like a handheld computer with phone feature, and Nokia tries hard to be a mobile computer platform too. Nokia is struggling with its 4 different OSes instead, fragmented model range and wannabe media and app stores. No need to go into detail about technical differences that most people are not noticing at all.
Don't buy iPhone if you don't want to.
Dear iPhone haters! If iPhone is so limited, expensive and so last century, don't buy it. That's all. Buy your wonderful Nokias and WinMos and SEs and Androids and BlackBerries. It's strange to be so emotional about it. iPhone is just a phone with best interface and app selection in the world. If you don't need it, ignore it. It's like me going out on all car forums crying that Porsche is a crap, and all who buy it get ripped off, because Ford is cheaper.

a lot of users talk about nokia vs apple. Ive been a nokia user for a long time and still feel that nokia makes the most reliable phones . No call quality issues . But as far as touchscreen phones are concerned no phone can match the fluidity of the iphone. The iphone is not a complete phone but the touch responsiveness is the best and fast. Speed is the most imp thing in a touchscreen phone. The 5800 and n97 r good but not fast enough and double tap is the most irritating issue.the n900 looks promising feature wise but lets see how responsive its touchscreen ,which is what nokia needs to work on .
