Bought this phone recently, and found it to be overpriced and tacky. The touch screen is unpredictable, and you'll find yourself preferring the qwerty keyboard. This can be a bit awkward because it is not quick access.
The applications are best installed on the E:\ drive or other external memory, because the phone's internal memory (C:\) is extremely limited. The phone hangs often if you so much as install one extra application onto C:\
The GPS works quite nicely even though it is slow.
Music doesn't sound great on the inbuilt speakers, and there are not many equalizer options.
Video tends to freeze and the free movies on this phone have license issues and you'll not be able to use them after 2 months.
Managing contacts is a bit difficult and you'll find yourself struggling to synchronize across applications. The ovi suite doesn't help in a big way.
The camera pictures are grainy. The flash works quite nicely.
The internet browsing is difficult on this phone, and jumping to hyperlinks on a particular page is like playing a video game.
The help file is written for Nokia N97 and most of the help topics are not applicable to the mini. Ex: Music transmitter via FM.
Support: Please think carefully before buying a Nokia product. There is NO SUPPORT. It is Nokia's way or the highway. This is what I meant by saying be prepared. Buy the phone knowing that Nokia will not support in any way. They'll tell you what's under warranty/what's
can anyone tel me how to play mp4 files in n97 mini..its not been supported..
i downloaded smart movie player for my nokia n97mini..but after opening the application no vedios r displayed..can anyone pls tel me where to download smart movie player.
Oh yes- its too cold here and i cannot take my gloves off. Thanx god its resistive touchscreen- i can use anything- my hair clips, toothpicks, matchsticks, gloves and it will work.
why would i limit myself to just finger touch by going for capacitive. It may be better but i need more touch options no matter if i hav to put some extra pressure on it (resistive) to perform. Its my way of thinking. Everybody have their own.
50, 21 Jun 2010in this the touch iz not gud
People keep complaining about the drawbacks of resistive touchscreen but do they at least once ponder over why Nokia is still using them? If this is still in use then there must be some positives to it.
You can use this screen with a stylus or a gloved finger. All you capacitive touchsreen fans, give me one good way to input your own handwriting (Eg: Signature) into your phone. Next time before you make any biased comments first try to input your signature into your phone with your finger. if you succeed in doing so you are free to criticize the resistive technology and i'll keep quiet.

faryha, 18 Jun 2010can anyone tell me which phone should i buy? nokia n97 mini or sony ericsson vivaz pro? please... moreu should go with the n97 mini rather than the se vivaz.
n97 mini's design is more elegent than the se vivaz.
& its speed too. i have tested both. n97 mini is better...
vinay, 19 Jun 2010its an complete good looking cell but only a problem is tjeir we have to slide it with very ve... moreactually its not a simple straight sliding phone. its sliding makes some angle with the qwerty keyboard. i found it quite easy than the straight sliding phones like the se xperia x1.
i was looking for a mobile having a better camera than the old 3.2MP, motion gamming, touch screen, qwerty keyboard, stereo speakers & much more. the nokia n97 mini has all of it. its price is quite surprising. i bought it for 34900. but its greatttttt.............
Ovi store take too many steps to download. clumsy and difficult. hardware not a problem. iphone much easier ................
Have been Owning this phone for 7 months
this phone is a all round phone, but not weak at some field like the game playing
recently i played with nokia n900; i fell in love with its smoothness, powerful internet browser, os openess, games emulator like drnoksnes,
my next phone will be powered by
its one of the best phone ever( good design , good sms, good everything) compare to iphone iphone is rubbish.
spj, 20 Jun 2010for those of u contemplating on either getting n97 mini or something else, i would say go for ... moreNooo..., vivaz is not better than this phone for sure, vivaz is very feminine ugly mono speaker phone.
The N900 is for guys who dedicate their life computing and shell junks...,, if you newer used linux on your desktop, than forget about it, but is better than android for some reason, but there is no much software for it either.
