Anant, 10 Jun 2010I m using N97 since 8 months..i think it is the best phone one can get in this price..accordin... moreLook and learn everyone...
GSM Arena should provide a seperate tab named "Complaints". Most of the comments made here, for whatever phone model, are complaints.
I enjoy learning about constuctive user opinions, such as this one, which lists the good and bad from an actual specific phone model user.
Most people do not have the convenience of first using a phone they intend on purchasing, so constructive feedback, good or bad, helps us who are considering to purchase the phone model for ourselves.
With regards to what's been said in this specific user experience, as a fellow N97 owner, I will agree with all mentioned.
I purchased the N97 because I started a business. I have a 5800, but was unable to view my document attachments via my e-mail. Under this pretense, I went ahead and purchased the Blackberry Bold 9700. But the biggest problem I had was the missing touch screen. So, after less than a month, I opted for the N97.
The buggy software I sorted (mostly) by updating the software. But I will admit, the phone still has its flaws. So, here, I'll try my hand at a user review in the form of 'The Good & Bad' side to the Nokia N97:
1. The easy to use 'copy/paste' feature Nokia's kept since the days of the 6600 and NGage. It allows users to copy text from notes or sms and paste them things like Facebook or calender or basically anywhere you need to type. If you need to send a call me back to anyone but can't remember their number, copy the number to clipboard easily, and paste them in your dialler and send, etc.
2. This QWERTY keyboard is awesome. Well spread out keys minimalises errors. After less than a month, I type by only looking at the screen, as I've done while posting this opinion.
3. When the N97 is running well, it runs very well. I have avoided loading too many after market software, for fear of slowing the phone down. I've seen this happen an many handsets I own or have owned.
4. The user interface is still a dream. Never do I find myself having to search around effortlessly looking for what I need. The 'Search' feature is not limited to what it searches.
5. The 'Switch' is very good. To be able to select what you would like to send to your new device is good.
6. The Tilt screen. It's by no means a Nokia feature, but it is top notch.
7. Build quality. Put any Nokia in your hand, compare it to any other, and you will feel the difference. Not just the actual phone, but also the accessories, down to the rubber coated cable on the charger.
1. The Software. Where to begin? ;-) Run too many programs at once, the phone WILL freeze. Nokia did fail when allocating a 434Mhz processor with only 128Mb RAM. What this means is that, perhaps the processor might've handled the software, it lacks enough RAM to be allocated to each open program. How I wish I could upgrade the hardware on this device.
2. The battery is not that good. I use this device like I've never used another. Modem, sms, mms, WAP, news feeds, Facebooking, Twitter, e-mail (all of which runs in my device's background) but I find myself having to charge it atleast twice a day!!!
3. The camera is not as good as my 5MP N82. Shading from the flash and automatic light changing during video clips.
Anyway, this could go on forever, Good and Bad, well, not so much the bad :-) but I will leave it there. I really do hope this will help any future purchasers. Weigh up the options, the N900 is already becoming old news, even though within the next month I should have one in my pocket.
I will still be looking forward to whatever the good folks at Nokia throws my way next.
i hv the one n97(32GB) it too slow, dmn it im gonna buy X6(32GB) plz anyone reply me.......?
This is the worst mobile I've ever had. The Nokia N95 was/is far better, despite the aging software and hardware.
calabradorm, 15 Jun 2010i heard this phone has a bad response touch screen.....whats your experience guys?I find the touch screen to be pretty responsive. It is a resistive touch screen, so I find it is better suited for a stylus than your finger tip. Still, it is very accurate when using your finger tip to select items. Dragging items is more difficult with your finger tip. When I have to drag across the screen, I just use my finger nail. You will notice this when playing solitaire. It is much easier to use a stylus or finger nail to move the cards around than with your finger tip.
this is not a good phone. it always crashes. and the hardware is to much for the software. i should have gotten an iphone.
i heard this phone has a bad response touch screen.....whats your experience guys?
Can you play music on this ipod

You can download many games from Ovi Store for free. You'll find Ovi Store in Application menu. About music video I can't recommend any site but you can convert your music videos and put them in your phone. Videora N97 Converter is a good converter. It can be downloaded from
