this is just so bad, i dont know why nokia released this phone at the 1st place.. with a dieing OS and a brilliant hardware and looks,,.
I got this phone today and I have to say i'm very disappointed
Firstly, the voice in the drive app does not say the street names. Secondly the speaker is trash, the sound quality is poor and you have to turn the volume to the max to hear it clearly.
Then there's the display. It looks amazing from the distance but when you bring it closer to your eyes ( and if you have good eyes) you can see the led dots and the pixel. its just like staring really close at a CRT monitor.
Also the camera is trash. Its so blurry and so much noise, especially when you take a photo thats zoomed in.
Lastly, in addition to the poor display. There's dust or smudges, spots or whatever you call it behind the display. You can't see it when its bright, but when its in a black background and your in a really dark place, the spots show up! Why this has to happen.
And one more thing is might add. The headset is a bit dodgy as well. I believe is a problem with the plug.
I'm not really happy. I'm taking the device back to the store tomorrow to get the display problem solved.
Is this happening to anyone. Please help
Nokia needs more than an entry level platform (MeeGo) to match against Android and iOS. Not only do they need to take a huge leap, they would have to put a man on the moon and back.

Brilliant photos taken by this phone. They are almost better than my Canon A620. It's gonna be my primary camera from now on. And the battery is brilliant, still 63% after 20 hours. I did surf the web, takes a few photos, play games and etc. More than happy.

The first Nokia device really competing with iphone first generation. Good Start.
ian, 15 Oct 2011Features are perfect BUT hardware design and style is like in STONE AGE...improve yourself nokiau call the design of N9 as STONE AGE design??? wow....u really do have design sense....keep it up
AnonD-7491, 15 Oct 2011Iphone copycat! hahahaha......my god... from which angle is N9 a copy cat of iphone?
AnonD-26017, 15 Oct 2011there is a front camera -- but one can't make video calls.
there's scype preinstalled -- bu... moreMr elop's fault for dumping Meego. So, those buying N9 must be ready to explore in the community forums.
-Audio recorder- i think i saw an app for it in ovi store.
- FM radio app- i saw an unofficial version, the developer testing it.
-Video call on skype, take note of the app 'peregrine' in ovi store. They hv the video call function ready in sept, dunno if it's released now.
- Video out is using the same usb for charging. It can work for some, couldnt work for others- compatability with TV i guess.
Does anyone know how to install Firefox or Opera Mobile on the N9? I have tried trying to install both, but the phone gave me error messages in both instances, saying that it couldn't install either. Has anyone been able to do it?

I understand this will be introduced sooner or later -- but why would Nokia release a phone which is not complete???
HD video recording, but no HD video out
No audio recording (well, one can possibly download it from ovi)
Not possible to create folders/ pages on home screen (I mean Nokia knew this was an issue with first iOS -- why would they follow the same route?) -- if you have a lot of apps you have to scroll through a very long screen, moreover you have to memorize location of apps. Thanks that there's a search app (I have initially moved it to the bottom of screen, but now consider have to move it on top:)
Number of functions are not customizable -- like you can not set intervals for checking new emails.
I haven't yet tried all functions (like calendar which is messed up now), but the above shows that the phone is not complete
Yogesh, 14 Oct 2011Name one phone which have all the functionalities of a smartphone... Plzzzzzzzzzzz I want to k... moremy previous phone samsung innov8.
it has 8gb / 16 gb memory + microSD slot; cameras front and rear (8mp); internet/ flash; emails (several accounts); document editing; office/ organizer functions; multitasking; video calls; fm radio; BT; wifi; TV-OUt; easy sync options (BT & USB)
What else do you expect to have in smartphone? read it out here http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i8510_innov8-2471.php
I bought it back in Jan 2009 (it was an improved copy of Nokia N95, which I used before and which also was at its time an excellent smartphone).
In general, I know only 2 additional truly novel functions that were introduced in phones since then -- NFC and social networks integration and N9 has both, but apparently some of the previous functions are either not there or not usable
for me this phone is one of the best.. unlike iphone or samsung; NOKIA phones have NO LIMITS. the iphone cannot send mp3 or images via bluetooth, they need some appCRAP that doesn't even work well. samsung should be jailbroken to be optimized to its full performance and jailbreaking always has the risks.
if you got the money, make your choice...
samsung GALAXY NOTE:
by the time I get my salary, I will surely decide and get one. :D
