Sad to say this has to be one of the most frustrating Nokia handsets I have ever had. The most frustrating thing is the battery life - it sucks. It can only last one day if you do ABSOLUTELY nothing with the phone apart from leave it on of course. I want to have email update on all the time and am a heavy internet user (travel to and fro work by train) this just isn't up to the job battery wise which is a shame as many other features are great! Prior to this I had the Samsung Jet have to say the screen on the N97 mini is far more resposive than the AMOLED jet. The camera quiality on the N97 is par excellence! Blue tooth is temperamental to connect and on the 3 different bluetooth devices I use it often has to be re-paired. Overall not bad but someone PLEASE do do something about the battery life!
hii, i recently brought N 97 mini, n its hands off to the product.
touchscreen is better than N97. plus its size is handy
comparin it to xperia x2 its better than it, also N97 is cost effective. also da windows platform of X2 is not user friendly... believe me as i have used a windows phone ( HTC Touch)....
lastly to end i am happy with nokia for its new launch... just a complete phone till date
A very nice phone and even better with the dec 09 update as it has transformed the phone.
Nice to handle just like my partner but not as smooth.
the battery lasts a long time and you can play with if for hours unlike my partner.
The main pain in the backside for me is my partner but he now uses super Lube 3000 but back to the Nokia N97 Mini though and the main problem is i have fat fingers (a bit like a sausage ) and the phones qwerty is a bit small for me as i am all fingers and thumbs when it comes to handling small things (partner :) .
Overall though it works for ages unlike my latest boyfriend who sits around all day and plays with baby oil .
I do hope this has helped you decide what to get next..it has for me...i will be in the blue oyster club looking for a replacment.....
ive used alot of mobile phone, nokia is 1 of my fav until the last 6 years, ive always do research on the net be4 i buy anything including phones, always trust the angry user since they will speak the truth, disregard ur fav brand, always choose worth for ur money, the power of buying is in ur hand, choose wisely.
If the company doesnt care about us users, why should we support them? Ask urself that..

i m very much confused which mobile to purchase. please recomend me the phone between 20-25k nd how is the n97 mini...
AGREED SO MUCH at "Disappointed Nokia U". Nokia should have 1-to-1 warranty atleast few days time period, maybe a week or a month, they should replace the set with new one or other model we want or maybe our money back. u guys should already know how expensive NOKIA handphone price is. but the warranty like shit, customer service like hell. W.T.F dude? this Finland product getting suckier than it should be. Think before u buy any of nokia's symbian product. they are really really bad. not worth your money.
p/s : i had the same situation as i posted earlier. but not exactly same like u. my sympathy.
hey check out this guys......
Disappointed Nokia U, 15 Jan 2010I bought this phone last sunday straight from Nokia (Original Raoul Version). Did the initial ... morei bouight this phone for singapore 699
i cant reboot after three days of use, i had no other choiice to hard reset the phone. Now the problem seems gone forever,
i admit that the firmwre is not stable need a major upfate from nokia, these all these problems are not supposed to happpen in nokia flagship
I bought this phone last sunday straight from Nokia (Original Raoul Version). Did the initial charging and used it for 1 day and then the phone got hang. I tried to reset it but still the same. The screen was not functioning at all.
Sent it to te Nokia care centre. At 1st they said it was a software problem so they reinstall everything back. After 2 hours i collected the phone and switched in on in front of them and the problem was not rectified. The screen was still not functioning and there was an system error message.
N then they said i had to leave my phone for 2 or 3 days. Called them after 2 days to ask what was the problem. They said it was a hardware problem and that they have to replace the motherboard. This is totally a manufacturing default. They should be replacing a brand bew phone for me. But instead they told me i had to wait for another 4 days for it to be done.
What the F**K!! I spend a lot on this phone and used it for ONE DAY!! There is no way i drown the phone, let alone dropped it!
So in my opinion, DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE or you'll end up being disappointed like me.
Oh by the way, i lodged a complaint to NOKIA. And i do hope they will do something about this or i will do more than just complaint.
if there is an n97i mini upgraded version runnoing symbian -4 os and multitouch i will take that model again
otherwise maemo6 phone
