Got this phone for christmas and thought i'd post my initial impressions.
In regards to the design i find it quite amazing, the polycarbonate plastic feels good in the hand and seems to be tough enough to handle everyday use. The 4 corners are a little bit pointy and you do notice them dig into your hand when using it. The amoled screen is simply amazing, the deep blacks and great contrast make viewing a pleasure. The only complaint i have is the metal strip at the back gets scratched easily. I handle my phones with great care yet i have a few scratches on it already. Luckily nokia includes a nice cover so if you use that the scratching wont be a problem. Having the speaker on the bottom is great as you dont have the muffling problem that some handsets have where the speakers is on the back. The actual sound is quite nice, personally i would have liked the speaker to be a little louder but its overall volume lvl is sufficient and above average compared with the many other smartphones i've used.
Using the phone is an absolute pleasure. Not having to rely on buttons to use the phone gives a unique and satisfying experience. I love how i can navigate and use the phone with simple swipes.
Cell reception is fantastic and call quality is excellent.
While there isnt a huge amount of apps on offer from the store there is enough to cover most of the basics. The only thing i find missing at the moment is a dlna app so i can stream media to and from the phone. There maybe a current solution for it but i havent had the time to look into it yet. What i found most impressive was the built in nokia maps and nokia drive which work amazingly well. I was also happy to see sportstracker available free in the store, as a long time nokia user its a must have for me and works just as well on the N9 as it did on symbian handsets.
Lastly the camera is fantastic, snapshot times are very fast indeed and picture quality is great. 720p video is very good too, i find myself purposefully taking random pics and videos just so i can upload and show them off online lol.
Battery life is very good, its above average and better than most other handsets i've used in the past. I'm a moderate user and i get 2 days use between charges.
Overall as a mobile phone the N9 is another awesome and unique offering from Nokia. If you like to play with apps and games then it may not be to your liking but if you want a solid mobile phone thats unique, looks great and handles the basics really well then you wont go wrong with the N9.
Emily, 26 Dec 2011Which is better? Iphone 4 or Nokia N9?Depends on your own preferences really. If you love apps and games then the iphone wins hands down. If you want something thats unique and will stand out then the N9 is a good choice.
