every thing about the phone is excellent.the sound system is splendid,the tilt sliding mechanism is very strong and will last for years Unless carelessly handled,the screen is scratch resistant enough while the touchscreen is very sensitive,all in all am satisfied with almost everything about the phone except in the following areas:Nokia should have used an amoled screen display instead of the old TFT,Nokia N97 should have had a built in DVB-H TV Receiver Just like its younger brother N96,the phone should have been equipped with an 8 Mega Pixel Camera& a more advanced Xenon Flash,the phone ram should have been 256mb&processing speed of the cpu upgraded to 600 mhz,Divx&Avi Playback Should have been supported instead of using 3rd Party applications Finally Nokia Deceived People by claiming that the phone was made with Metal frame While the lower part of the supposed metal was actually a shined metal&within a few months started scratching away!!!.Imagine My utter dissappointment because as a student i spent a lot of money on phones and on the nokia n97 in particular which i thougth had a lot of quality inside and outside!
Simple.... Nokia is such a big loser on this model n97.
i am using this phone for last 6 month.. have all the updated recent firmware on this phone but still its a loser.. i wasted my $600 on this from usa. i feel like breaking it every single day...
Playing video is a pain in this phone. Specially MP4 Formate.. Iphone can play much better video playback with much much more brighter screen resulation. N97 somehow blury.. slow.. and skips frame on video playback.
well anyone wana waste money like me then go buy it.
i hate my phone. My key board always stuffs up and wont let me type symbols. It randomly freezes or turns off unexpextedly. I cant set a particular ring tone. Camera at night sucks. When deleting typing it deletes words other than the word i want. I have other friends with the same problem. So angry and apparently nothing can be done about it!

It shouldn't take too long with a genuine charger. The Nokia charger copies in the Philippines are crap, they are slow and stop working pretty quickly. I also shop in that mall and tyhe Marquee mall, we got an E72 recently and have had no probs but I bought my unlocked N97 in Singapore, it's fine also although still can't get V20.

Ada, 23 Feb 2010I think the phone N97 is so-so,useful for business mans.Hello, I am Mandy. Would you mind asking you a question that is Italy language possible in the Nokia N97? Thank you very much!

Jennifer14344, 23 Feb 2010Touch screen is resistive especially when browsing songs, so irritable - yes they are right it... moreIt's because the browsing is a line-type, not really a touch-smooth play like the iphone, you are right, it's hard to get the title of the song you like.

After 1 week of use, I sell it to my co-office at the half of it's price, just like other comments here, I am really dissapointed!
Yesterday I purchased NOkia N97. I am very sad to see your all comments about N97..becoz I just purchased this device.. It cost me 2200 Saudi Riyals. I am living in Saudi Arabia..
Until now I didn't face any problem in this phone..Camera is ok.
Touch screen is resistive especially when browsing songs, so irritable - yes they are right it's hard to catch the song in browsing mode. The earphone has poor quality sound you have to buy a better earphone. Worst, Line out is poor, even if you put on the correct setting the quality is poor. Better use a basic phone and buy yourself a music player and a camera.
hi, how come it is not possible to search music via
names or characters like in the iphone? What if you
have thousands of songs.. you have to search each
of them for the song you are looking for??
I use this phone since october 2009, the only problem i found is when taking pictures in the darker place and using flash light, the pic seem lighter on the left of the pic, that was annoying me, anyone can solve my prob? And my general experience 'bout this phone is 98% satisfied. Its just a mobile phone, even hi tech pc will hang if you push it over its limit. compare to iphone 32gb or latest blackberries series n97 still on the top in price and specs.
hey guys, i want to know that "IS THERE ANY WAY TO DETECT THE ORIGINAL N97 AND FAKE N97?". If anyone know then please tell everyone so that people don't get cheated when they go to buy the N97.
N97 ENGGINEER, 21 Feb 2010Hello All, I Have Updated My Nokia N97 Device With New Latest Firmware Version 40. I Cant Ima... moreWhr r u from, dude? i am in malaysia and still waiting for the latest version. My N97 is still on v 12.x. I dnt know how long i need to wait to get the latest firmware. The old firmware sucks. I wrote to nokia cust care but they also asked me to wait. thsi is really frustrating!!!
sound quality of the stereo speakers of this phone is really poor..even my old 5700 has better sound..:-(
I'm dissapointed with this phone. Very costly-hi-ends but did not satisfy in a weeks use only, it gives me stress and headaches. Charging is sooo slowww, battery life is so short, music refreshing is so slow, the video audio's quality is poor even if the original source has HQ audio. The music list's browsing hrough touch is very poor, it's hard to catch the title of the song. If you are looking for a nice hi-end CP, avoid this one, such a dissapointment!
