I agree this is a waste of money, you should read alot of bad comments about this fone before buying. I sold mine because: 1. Lens scratch even careful sliding of lens cover, 2. Hangs when 10gig of memory is used, 3. Interface becomes more and more boring as day goes by, 4. u can't use the flash on the camera due to a wash out at the left side of the photo, 5. Tinny speaker sound, 6. No keyboard shortcuts like easy marking of items, 7.

just a heads up on those who still want one. if the 5mp camera was a selling point for you, be careful. many users and myself found out the back camera has a build flaw. in two weeks or so you will most likley get the lens scratched because of the lens protector. ironic eh? it's true so now when i take pictures using flash, a portion of the left side of the picture is washed out. if anything wait for the mini n97 as it does not have a lens cover so it might not have that issue. now im stuck just taking pictures without flash which is a hassle. especially when you cant save the setting to have flash off so before i take a picture i have to manually turn it off each time.
Garima, 25 Aug 2009I want to know if N97 supports mp4 audio files. Does anyone know?it do support mp4 usually i use 640x480 mp4 formet
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2009Don't forget the iPhone 3GS also has the same latest hardware as the Satio and Samsung HD, ARM... moreI have all the 3 major smartphones till date...From your review detail we all can easily tell that u come from a very poor family pOOR Child! and you cant and will never be able to afford good phones for the rest of your poor life.. I own the Iphone, the Omina HD and the N97 and they are all very good smartphones.
The only reason i don't like my Iphone much is the limited bluetooth usage including no file transfer, no external SD card for safe keeping of data incase my Iphone dies, its poorest camera of the 3 phones, and no flash for nite pictures as well as no radio or fm transmitter ...These are the downsides of my Iphone 3Gs
The upside of my iphone is that it is very fast and it owns the best of the three touch interface with its capacitive touchscreen. I love my 3 smartphones,,,but My Vertu Signature IS MY SHOWOFF PHONE for the ladies.
