N97 six months later - Flash causes photos to show a faded white image on the left. The phone is very slow and freeze regularly, voice dialing don't work. Terribly disapointed is all I can say Nokia !!

I am not impressed with the office setup, why does Nokia not give the package in its entirety as does Samsung, now you must purchase Quickoffice, I think Nokia should consider adding such packages
this is really amazing,mind blowing,fantastic,super,superb,excellent,better,best,good,a gift,good work and finally than q
i would go for this phone if only they made the camera lens cover like in the n900... i chose the n97 mini even without the camera lens cover coz im sure the glass is somehow scratch resistant and the n97 either way is more prone to scratches every time you open the lens cover...
GOLDEN RULES to Make Ur N97 Run without a single HANGING Episode
1. Never put a memory card more than 2 GB in the slot and use it only for backing up settings and contacts.
2. Uninstall all programs even OVI store and never install any software on ur phone except OVI maps.
3. Everyday switch ur phone off just once and turn it on.
4. Do not place any widgets on ur home screen except the shortcuts for programs.
5. Follow these steps and don’t forget to thank me. Your phone will never hang or restart. Let’s hope we can update our N97 to Symbian^3 or Symbian^4.
I don't care what the nonsense he was talking about(Nokia Admits to N97 Fail(video)).
I had upgraded my N97 firmware to v21.x,it's the best so far,no freezing,no reseting,it runs pretty smoothly,all goes well,i'm happy about it.
For goodness sake those N97 user still having ver 1.x please go and upgrade to the latest firmware and stop complaining.
Nokia is the best now comes with free navigation map for life with voice guided so more.Does any rival operators give you a free map for life?NO NO
I am thinking of buying an N97. I'm a doctor and I need a phone which can store powerpoint, word, pdf and html so i can browse through them anytime of the day without difficulty. Would this phone be good for my needs? Please post your comments... thank you!!!
does this phone has a on screen t9 keypad... i'm used to t9 keypad it would be better if it has a t9 touchscreen keypad on display
will the new symbian platform be available for the n97 ?
like the Symbian^3 and Symbian^4?

The camera is good at night or low light if it's close to you. otherwise, getting pics in a low light in a stadium-like is a no no. For example, taking pics in a dome full of crowds in a low light. that's bad.
getting pics closer to your subject is the best.
I love my N97 bcoz:
2)32 GB storage
3)Able to make free video calls-thanks to Fring
4)Free GPS and offline map( though I prefer to use my Garmin mobile GPS)
5)Cool free applications and games
7)Extremely smooth kinetic scrolling ( thanks for V21 upgrade)
What is littile disappointing
1)Low phone memory ( I had to re install all the applications except Handy Taskman, Maps, OVI store client and I now got just above 30 MB. Hopefully, next f/w will give us an option to instal the map on mass memory so that I can increase my phone memory to 42 MB+
2)Low RAM ( Had to close all unwanted application often but thanks to Handy Taskman, it takes only 5 seconds )
3)Camera at dark conditions
4)A bit heavy ( not size but weight)
1)Auto rotate is too slow..feel to turn off auto rotate feature
2)Cannot add 2 more short cut bar on the desktop (max is 2)

bt it looks good and awesome features especially 32gb memory
if only its d-pad was on right side...it would have been more comfortable for typing n using the keyboard...like in communicators n many other e series phones...
Im thinking about buying the Nokia N97. It look like a realy interesting phone 2 get but thats jus base on appearance. I need 2 know if its a good idea 2get 1.
Plez i need ur opinion, N97 users.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2010I heard the camera is poor at nightThat is so not true. Nokia N97 32GB's camera is the best in the night if you have a clear lens (meaning you have 2nd gen lens cover)
It is head to head with the Nokia N96 in terms of camera but we are talking 5th edition SYMBIAN here so there's something new while the N96's OS is a veteran.
I just wish we can have N-Series photo gallery where you can scroll the pics/vids
