the design still the same but the perfomance quite good compared to the old iphone..

Think of the cost and environmental savings of accessory manufacturers not having to change anything.
All most of you seem to do is whine about it looking the same.
Once again Apple is a leader not a follower.

It's all about the usability, the iPhone is easily the most user friendly smartphone available, a lot if smartphones that were around for years may have had all these "features" but no-one but hardcore geeks ever made use of them.

I believe that nokia gives you more freedom and options as to what you can do with the device as compared to apple and that is why I'm going back to nokia. However, you not want to do or use all the extra features nokia has to offer. If I was you I would sit back and consider what I'm going to do or shall I say use this device for. Good luck with that
My contract is due for an upgrade and I was just looking around at some of the phones on offer. Well it eventually comes down to choosing an iPhone or N97. I have been on the iPhone page as well as this page, trying to find comments/opinions by the users of the actual phones in order for myself to decide on which phone to get.
After reading some of the comments made by users of these phones, I am completely put off both these phones. I find it amazing how people react over something so trivial like a cell phone. I know many people and cell phone stores who use this site to help customers research phones before actually buying them. The iPhone comment page as well as the N97 page has become the laughing stock of the net.
The Admin of this site should seriously consider reviewing all comments before they are posted up in the forums or anywhere on this site. People shouldnt be shot down for deciding to purchase something simple as a phone.
What's so horrible about this phone is, no flash, only can upload video to you tube, lose previous video if you edit and the new software is bugy as h#%*! They are suppose to be comng out with a new software update to fix the problem on something they should have got right and the first place. iPhone sucks to the extreme like porn chicks! Going back to nokia at least I have modern features like a real bluetooth capabilities. You have the lamess Bluetooth on this phone then any phone and history. Don't let those apple fan boys fool you with, the iPhone can do this or that cause it can't and they suffer the ill fate of hopping apple will do something to make it better trust me. As far as userinterface is so much easier that statement is way overrated and if you notice that's all apple fans can say. It's garbage
Those who don't own a iPhone yet here's a important announcement! If you buy a iPhone and after the 30 days warranty from AT&T has gone away and you get a bubble in your screen which is a hardware problem instead of them replacing the phone like they use to cause it's a defected product, they are popping the glass off and replacing it with a newer glass and along with that if you have software issues with the defected product they are telling the customer to go home and do a restore on the phone, but don't put any apps on the phone for a week so the memory can be in full working order without causing crashes on the apps. The phone is a joke and way overrated. This crap is so limited it's unreal and like a fool I got caught in the hype in purchase two of them! Stick with lg, htc, samsung, nokia, se or whom ever. Trust me you won't regret it.
therock, 08 Jul 2009the n97 has lower processor than the iphone because it is more of a balance smartphone. nokia ... moreI think what Nokia needs to do first before upgrading the processing power is improving their UI, It needs a revamp!
therock, 08 Jul 2009omnia has 624 MHz which is faster than the iphone's processor.The Omnia has alot to handle though, i mean the HD Video is battery draining and then its OLED display, I mean its like a pentium 4, always processing lol
I personally prefer Mac over Windows, thats why iPhone does it for me.
Symbian is just ok, its not a totally perfect UI, Hate when it sticks and restarts, Symbian does get annoying.
no matter what this iphone 3gs has n97 beats it loads more .. n97 has everything
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970too slow? too bored?LOL are you talking about n97?LOL
i tried n97 in a store, the pics and videos takes too long to open, and the woman who tried it first before me crushed it down,it hanged up! the nokia guy restarted it!LOL thats nice isnt it?LOL!!
therock, 08 Jul 2009omnia has 624 MHz which is faster than the iphone's processor.iPhone 3GS has an 833MHz processor underclocked to 600MHz
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2009But our human brain can process about 30fps images. Anything faster than that will be "too fas... moreIf thats true then all those scenes in films filmed at 130 fps plus would be unwatchable right? 130 fps footage renders itself as smooth slow motion as the camera is recording images at a faster rate, not displaying them at a faster speed
the n97 has lower processor than the iphone because it is more of a balance smartphone. nokia could have put 600 mhz processor, but 464 mhz is fast enough.
nokia is starting the 600 mhz processor with the launch of e72.
probably the next n-series will have 600 mhz processor.
the samsung omnia already has the 600 mhz.
