just got my N9.
I also own a galaxy s 2.
the n9 is sexy...built quality and display is excellent.
under direct sunlight its superior than sgs2 due to its polarized screen.
browser...looks like safari a bit..slow but acceptable..in comparison to sgs2 of course.
apps in ovi store...very few indeed...but u do have an exellent on board apps.
swype??? there is no swype text input...gsmarena is wrong in this..however the native keyboard is indeed better than my stock nexus one..and haptic feedback feels good.
sound output is decent...comparable to the nokia E72.
regarding the memory..only 16gb was on contract...it has about 6GB allocated for the phone..out of which nearly 5GB is for apps install...the actual user memory to store files is just 8 gb...so my advice pls take 64GB.
User experience...something very fresh..i get bored with android...but the only plus point of android is the apps...if its true that we could port android to meego..then this is the deal.
hope this shed some light for those who r planning to get one.
I heard from the guys on YouTube everywhere that there won't be many applications and games on the Nokia N9 as MeeGo is just on its way up...
Is that true ? :/ or just a rumor ? :/
Thank you for your care :)
AnonD-397, 08 Oct 2011Just RUN 3D benchmark to N9 and see how "doesnt need to have a DUAL CORE". You must... morePlease. Go google about Dual Core. Apps need to be recoded for it to use dual core. In Android world, it's about best specs and stuff. But you are paying so much, how much do you really make use of the hardware that you are paying for? I tried a NOKIA N9 today and i was wowed by it. It's not the specs, but the UI. The UI is amazing. I believe many ppl are buying N9 because of the UI, the effort employees put in to make such a smart UI. If you are buying phone for specs, then i think you have wasted your money. It's more impt to invest your money on an UI that suits you. Wake up dude.

You must... moreOnly if you are both S2 AND N9 owner you can say that. Those who have both said they prefer N9, in terms of screen display, user interface. Thats just for starters.
Remember, it is the S2 owners who came here 1st to brag about samsung & bash nokia,long before n9 is released.
I like N9 for NOT being the big 4.3",for NOT being the same boring design, for NOT being the same cheap plastic.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2011your not credible enough. your opinions are not welcome here. NOKIA doesnt need to have a DUAL... moreJust RUN 3D benchmark to N9 and see how "doesnt need to have a DUAL CORE".
You must accept the facts, N9 is MUCH slower and LOWER phone than SGS2 or some NEW models from other brands.
Because, NEW world apps, games etc, NEED FASTER PROC-s and GPU-s...
Android UI or some lags from UI is NOT enough for speed compare!
Try CUSTOM rom to SGS2, NO LAGS!
Some bugs from UI is just BUGS, not really "lag"
I have iPad 2, UI NO have lag... but.. MANY games have lag and apps, also BROWSING is nightmare for some sites... because PROC is 900 mhz dual core, and GPU is inferior, and memory is small VS SGS2
Sithembiso, 07 Oct 2011When buying a phone, people have different needs to satisfy.. for example, I am a traveller.. ... moreyou're right Sithembiso we buy phone depending on our used,dont buy a phone becoz someone from this site told you that a samsung or an iphone is better than a nokia or nokia is better than a samsung or iphone....or which ever it is,and the thing about the comments here they dont even really own those great phones....lol
jack Sparo, 08 Oct 2011Ill be honest, i dont know why nokia fans hype about nokia phones when all the competition is ... moreyour not credible enough. your opinions are not welcome here. NOKIA doesnt need to have a DUAL CORE, a single core will do to run apps smoothly, seriously, i've tried to use sgs2 i find it so laggy and so cocky, it cannot be compared to am iphone 4. iphone 4 only got single core and it run so smoooooth. im now waiting for the n9 it will blow you away!!
jack Sparo, 08 Oct 2011Ill be honest, i dont know why nokia fans hype about nokia phones when all the competition is ... moreSo? So do fans of other brands, in instances even worse than Nokia fans. They comment all the time in Nokia threads that S2 is the best, you want to complain some more, lol. If you've looked at the actual phone/display set & decided it doesnt suit you, then just move on to another model.
What is most popular, most sales does not mean it's suits - have done so & regretted. Btw, I dont go hover in the threads of the brands I'm not interested, including S2 & Iphone
I am waiting the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE and this N9 to come to the market. If the prices are close, I prefer the Galaxy HD LTE.
jack Sparo, 08 Oct 2011Ill be honest, i dont know why nokia fans hype about nokia phones when all the competition is ... morei agree for all your opinion, & i have met my friend just love those colour, with all spec in Nokia N9, cant beat Samsung Note.
jack Sparo, 08 Oct 2011Ill be honest, i dont know why nokia fans hype about nokia phones when all the competition is ... moreOne reason why I by Nokia products is that I live in Finland, second I can use those. Third reason is I travel a lot so you could make phone calls with them any where in the world. I could name one product wich is allmost useless as a phone. N9 is wonderfull piece and to my opinion it has everything what I need. That's it.
Ill be honest, i dont know why nokia fans hype about nokia phones when all the competition is destroying them. Nokia just announced there brand new phone which to nokia fans is the best phone ever.
A 1 core phone, which most companies introduced a 1 core phone more than 1.5 years ago.... a 8 megapixel camera (when the n8 was 12) a very weak os, and a app world that your lucky to find the facebook app available.
So in the end, all the hype? i understand you must care about nokia since your fans, but common guys, looks at your ratings for this phone, you all rate high???? and you go and comment on other phone posts saying n9 is the best. nokia owns 1.8% of the market. Apple and samsung sell 1.8% a week.
Maybe its the colors that the phone comes with that is making you all dizzy, but its time to wake up.
Evan, 08 Oct 2011We got a demo one yesterday. Don't bother with it - it is slow, laggy and difficult to useHow many apps did you have open at the same time? Its fluid, smooth unless you're running 20 - 30 apps at the same time.
