Poor picture quality can be caused by one of these things: dirty lens, shaky hands while shooting,and or shooting distant subjects in dark surroundings.
Check this photo I took with my N97 mini camera:

I'd just like to comment on the calendar - it's not that bad. I know what you mean about been hard to select dates. But if you get a stylus it really isn't an issue. I have found a stylus can really compliment the n97 and is really handy when small links appear in web pages. The ability to use a stylus is a true advantage over oversensitve capacitive displays.
bhavesh, 07 May 2010hey plz tell me how much apps i can put in n97 mini that it should not start hanging?????? thanks!!i've installed at least 20 additional apps including opera, sports tracker and google maps. I still have over 190 mb free on my c: drive. Nokia have given you plenty of room on c: drive in the n97 mini. You have to remember most apps are under 1mb in size. So if you can fill up the c: drive i think you are just downloading every app under the sun for bragging rights. Really, how many apps do you need when so many are gimics you soon tire of and delete. Also remember you have the mass storage for storing your data.
The Bolt mobile browser from Bitstream is a lot way faster than Opera Mobile 10. Very ideal for low bandwidth/data transmission.
I have spent about a day with my new N97 Mini and I have to say that while it does have a fairly steep learning curve as a well as some major flaws (read: calendar), once mastered it is a pleasure to use.
The hardware feels solid, robust: a high quality phone no doubts whatsoever. The slide out keyboard is one of the best I have handled ever. Kudos to Nokia there.
The touchscreen is remarkably good ( for a resistive type touchscreen ) and responds to light presses, unlike its elder sibling, the N97. Images, videos and text on the screen look quite crisp. I would have liked a faster processor though. Oh and the speakers are fantastic.
The software is however a bit of a disappointment. While being alright for basic functions like dialing a number or selecting a contact, the calendar is horrendous! Its amazing how a company like Nokia could mess up so badly here. It just has not been optimized enough for touch based inputs. Selecting individual dates is virtually impossible, they are too closely set.
The media player is not exceptional either. It works, but does not provide for a very engaging experience.
The same applies to the video player.
Ovi maps and the free turn by turn navigation was impressive. As an Indian user, I found the maps of Indian cities to be quite good. Overall, a satisfactory experience.
The browser in my testing was unspeakable. If you use the web on your phone frequently, download Opera Mobile or Skyfire immediately.
The camera works as advertised. I am not a photographer, and for my modest expectations it seemed just fine.
Wrapping up, while I was certainly not 'WOWed' by the device, it provides an amazing no. of features, well implemented for the most part in a great, high quality package.
3.5 / 5

I still can't get over how many people complain about the battery. I've had my N97 mini for nearly 2 months and not once had a problem with the battery. I am still finding the battery to be much better than N95 8gb. I actually find this phone to better than n95 in every aspect apart from multitasking. But n97 multitasks quite well for real life. So what if you can't load 10 or 20 apps to show off.
I did get some slowness after installing and uninstalling many apps. After a rebuild I have found it is far better to install your applications to the C: drive. It results in faster start up and far less lag. Also, don't install handy taskman - I have found it causes lags and probably leaks memory itself. My phone is flawless without it.
Lastly, to everyone who keeps asking the same question about what to buy, which is better or if this is a good phone - please use your brain and read through the comments that have already been posted and form your own opinion. By doing this you can get an answer to you 'urgent' questions. And, read the manual before you ask basic questions - it will save cluttering the comments with junk
