Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Neither! Wait for the SE Satio that's about to be released next month. Its CPU is 3x faster than this and it has advanced graphics for gaming. And it's the first phone to support nHD games. And it was said to support the Symbian^2. I suggest you wait for it. But if you only want to choose between both, I'd suggest this one..

Most phones uses the standard Li-ion battery whereas the Satio or the Idou uses a Li-Po battery. Pretty much an interesting phone...

The future of Nikia is bright
N900 has phone, cortex a8 256 ram so I can tell
n98, n97i would be not dissappoint us again
maemo 5 and symbian foundation with new ui are great
Microsoft office and intel chip make it even better

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Oh yes,dropped calls on the iphone3g from rogers.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970How do you enjoy your weak battery on the iphone 3gs and its poor camera with no flash and low volume and overheating while using GPS?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970So tell me Mr Sean from MIT what did your testing involve apart from apparently only looking at the camera specs?
Show us some polygon counts, run some tests and publish your results here,
The reason I say MIT standards have slipped is because they seem to have let you in, for a 4th year student you don't seem to know much about the methodology you should use when making a comparative report.
oh my god!!!! believe it or not!!! i am a chinese from the philippines. since my iphone has problems recently. therefore, i can't bear the temptation of n97.... i bought n97 last night here in alabang town center, 30 mins far away from my house.... i spent 31500 pesos cash for it... the demo was done there. but when i tried it again at night... no screen display.... very bad quality from nokia now, it is my first impression..... i don't care it is made in china or finland... the most important is the Qality control for the prodcut!!!! how come i am very unlucky to get the disqualitfied one............ will go to that store earlier to change the unit..... can't sleep well last night.... the money is hard to earn nowadays.........
why TFT,why not OLED?
12mp is too high and useless 4 general,but why not at least 8mp?
but its beter than SE IDOU,4 this reasons:
1.idou is low in battry
2.idou doesn't have a QWERTY
3.no 3.5mm holllleeeee!!!!!
this 3 reasons are very important 4 my usage,so i rather to buy n97.
i know its lowerrrrrr in cpu and camera,but they are hidden behind the advantages!
i wish it was OLED such as omnia HD.
if u wana buy , i sugges u buy ! :D
hey,I bought my N97 like 10 days ago but i found out it's turning off by itself!is there anyone who has the same problem???I don;t know if I instal the latest software version for it!Just wondering!
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2009Hey Amoggh, Just thought i'd let you know know that i have the n97 and im loving this phone ... moreyou now what I bought this phone yesterday and I also bought one iphone for my wife and i can tell you so far that there is no way that iphone or even other brands come close to the performance of this phone, it's amazing and very functional phone. I unplugged my wife's iphone and my phone at the same time this morning within 3 hours the iphone was at 75% battery life the n97 hasn't drop one bar (it has been 10 hours) so there you go u won't make a mistake by buying it
thanks i will try that because i had it on dual mode so now i will see how it works it seems to give me steady 2 bars compare to nothing.

Just thought i'd let you know know that i have the n97 and im loving this phone for everyday use. I had the n82 and i do find the signal strength to be weaker (ie. 2 to 3 out of 7 bars rather than 5-6 out of 7 bars)... i've never had it hang up a call even when signal strength goes to one or 0 bars although im sure it may have happened. The speaker volume and earpiece volume is amazing and VERY clear --unlike any phone i've ever come accross. If you're looking for a phone that does the everyday job, and you want attention.. this phone will do it for you.
p.s. Battery life is AMAZINGGGG.... 3 hours of continuous talk and the battery meter didn't even drop 1 out of 7 bars!!!
i'm planning to buy Nokia N 97 but i heard it hangs a lot is it true? how is its performance? how is its ear piece volume, i'll be happy if some one guides me

the debate over capacitive and resistive is subjected to different opinions. Nokia feels resistive is better suited so they go for it, each has its pros and cons.
