I sent my N97 back its a load of rubbish I am now using my N95 again and had forgotten how good it was.
Does not work on speakerphone (unfixable they tell me)
Voice control is useless (unfixable they tell me)
The flare you see using the flash means the lens cover has scratched the lens (poor design but fixable if you send your phone away for 4 weeks)
The GPS recons I am in Afganistan not Australia but it does not work there either (poor design but fixable if you send your phone away for 4 weeks)
Its slow, its difficult to use, its a stupid design the way it pops open unless you use it as a bedside clock, it locks up for no reason, the software is barbaric and the apps are as useless as tits on a bull.
Otherwise its fine.
But the camera is very bad in the dark.
The 2 flashed make some sort of wellow fade on the left to the middle.
Without de flashes the camera is good, just as good as the n95.
Good phone, combination keyboard and touch is great, but for the flash, that a design misstake.
The samsung yet has this problem also! same dubble flashes.
I think they fixed it in the n97 mini..
Greats from holland. (where this update isn't rolled out by vodafone yet..)
N97 Camera is the worst camera in a handset i have ever seen, every shot it takes has a yellowish tint in it, i think it happens because of the dual flash located very near to the lens. The yellowish tint in the shots usually comes at the border that ultimately spoils the whole shot.
N97 's camera is just pathetic.. :O
Ravi, 13 Sep 2009The phone in the video with the Nokia dude is not a N97. The keys are different. Hmm...Thats the N97 Mini
Ravi, 13 Sep 2009The phone in the video with the Nokia dude is not a N97. The keys are different. Hmm...There has been a new mini N97 floating around for a while. I don't know if that will be released or not but have seen photos about on blogs and that for a couple of months. Could just be developer ones
These upgrades will make a big difference. But when will they fix voice control, does ROBERT sound anything like CAROL or POLICE. I think it picks something at random when it hears noise.
The keys are different because its the new mini N97

Sale, 10 Sep 2009I use MAC too and Samsung Omnia HD and have same issue. As it seems neither Nokia nor Samsung ... more"Big mistake".. Majority of the world uses Microsoft's OS.. Certainly giants like Samsung and Nokia would not defer to you Mr. Mac. Get out of your shell and smell the air, there is much more to see than your back yard.. ;) :)
How come the phone the guy demos in the video has a different keyboard then mine.
Hes one looks much more ergo then mine and hasnt got the big curser navigator thingi that takes up about 9 key spaces.
Leonardo, 11 Sep 2009Firmware upgrade on 5800XM ? Make me laughhhhh ... Nokia has already proven they don't care ab... more i'm still waiting for 3.0 im in canada :'( but they might skip it just like what they did from before cause we had 2.0 stock instead of 1.0 like everyone else so 3.1 might be are next for the NAM version
Firmware upgrade on 5800XM ? Make me laughhhhh ... Nokia has already proven they don't care about us, we got an update few weeks ago with nothing interesting on it .. not even the flash and java updates were on the latest firmware upgrade.
I regret soooooooooooooo much about the weakeness of buying this Nokia 5800XM as soon as it was released that I'll never do this again. Shame on Nokia !!!
Does anyone know when the knew firmware will be avaiable in Australia via PC suite, i know u can get the firmware as a download but i want to update it properly through the updater. any news on when it might go live in AUSTRALIA?????? please @@!!!
I bought n97 after 1mmonth of observation. And iam typing from it lol. Omnia vs n97? No. Nokia vs samsung..and nookia wins . End of story
