AnonD-1082, 28 Dec 2011Even if you didn't get updates, the S60 on the N97 is still better than Android ICS. That's ho... moreThe Nokia N97 is the worst phone ever. I got it with a 3-year contract and it was so bad that after 7 months, I paid full price for an HTC Desire Z and it was worth every penny.
The phone had an annoying habit of playing the default ring tone from time to time. The FB widget errors out every few days. The weather widget errors out every few days. The phone is just so sluggish all the time. It gets sluggish if you don't reboot it after a few days. The browser can't display half the web sites that I frequent. The BlueTooth headset made by Nokia doesn't properly connect once every few days. You can't use standard headphones as the sound is distorted and you have to use the Nokia headset. The phone crashes after a phone call once every few weeks. The camera lens cover that is supposed to protect the lens actually smudges and sometimes scratches the lens. It has a resistive touch screen.
Even when it does work, there are just some very frustrating things about it. Just try moving a shortcut in the shortcut widget one space over. You cannot long tap and drag it. You have to delete it from the current spot and then select the adjacent spot, select the shortcut from the long list of apps. Finding an app is so frustrating with the nest of menus.
The phone is so bad that Nokia decided to sweep it under the rug. They dropped support for the device without mentioning a word hoping no one notices. If you think it is an awesome device, why don't you just go to the Nokia discussion forum where there are over a thousand messages of people complaining as they await for Nokia to simply fix all of the problems and tell them that they are all wrong?
The only reason I didn't bother selling or giving the N97 away to someone else is that I don't every want anyone else to go through the hell I went through for 7 months. The only really good things about the N97 is the display has great legibility day or night, indoors or outdoors so you can see clearly any time how much the phone sucks. The keyboard is really nice with a tilt screen. 32GB of storage is awesome and the FM transmitter is the coolest feature of any phone. The only good use for it is for a music player. As a phone, it's a dismal failure.
Dont bullshit your way out.....the tech specs of Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab is fully capable of adapting Android 4.0.x ICS.
There are other brands of phones with the same tech specs which will be getting the ICS.....how do U justify that?
No more nonsense from U.....just deliver the version as required by Google's terms and conditions agreed upon partnership.
Same hardware spec phone from them for google gets the update and samsung is forcing to stay on TW launcher ? how many people brought galaxy S for TWlauncher ? thier are certain features which are good but nobody will pay the galaxy price for TWlauncher features. This is the way they are trying to hold customers for their product, next time my phone will be i series rather than galaxy series.
Thanks please provide even Jellybean update to SGS next year and downgrade wave with Bada 0.0. It's better to format the phone and throw it in gutter,atleast it wont restart thrice a day on its own.
AnonD-34845, 27 Dec 2011Nokia doesn't know the word called "UPDATE"don't worry buy W7 from Nokia and then you get the update same day Microsoft release an update. This is the advantage of iOS and W7. for Android except google phone rest of the phone it takes 6-12 month to come up with an update

N97 is the worst Nokia phone ever, please ask anyone that ever used it.
I have NOkia N8 with Belle and I also have Galaxy SII(My main Phone) with Android Gingerbread.
Apart from N8's Camera, symbian Belle is like a toy compare to Galaxy SII.
samsung has made a right choice..! i'm going to have ICS soon!! wee...
people respnded well in regard of galaxy tab or s2 as they hope to get further updates. if samsung fell to do so certainly customer will look for other solution and company loose a major part of customer. samsung has to remeber galaxy p1000 is not a cheap phone and company is playing with emotion of customers. Fie!
Glad to hear sammy bod to reconsider they decision for the 1st money machine both in smartphone and tablet since this 2 galaxy was a huge contribute to delivered sammy like today
Been using nokia for what 10 years then i shifted to samsung galaxy s2 and i just cant get enough of this phone apps. Update, os update and i think android is way better than symbian.
AnonD-1082, 28 Dec 2011I agree. If only the SGS comes with Symbian then I'm pretty sure that their sales will be 5x m... moreyour full of nonsence . Samsung went the symbian road be4 and ended up in a ditch allong with omnia HD . SUpwer powerfull specs but super crappy OS .
Android saved samsung . And many other brands . I am sorry but Symbian fails , thats why nokia is trying to rid itself of it and why no other manufacturer tryed to use it.
Android gained popularity because of the adoption of major companies as its main OS not because of advertisements or anything else. It gained popularity due to a cheap alternative to iOS.
Android still has flaws but considering its short lifespan i belive it will get there eventually . Specially considering the features and freedom you get with it.
And Nokia fanboyPRO .I bet your desk is still full of peeled paint and broken nokia devices but you like to troll other brands:)
How will Sammy personally feel if left out without purchasing his products? The Galaxy S is really a smart phone and needs ICS. Without that Samsung is worthless.
Anonymous, 27 Dec 2011symbian would be better for these phones when they update, android is not good for these 2 cau... moreI agree. If only the SGS comes with Symbian then I'm pretty sure that their sales will be 5x more. Android is a power hungry pig and you'll be lucky to have enough power for 6 hours. Imagine the Galaxy Tab with Symbian Belle- it will be a top seller for sure and beat the iPad!
