i have this funny experience with this device yesterday. its my cuz's b-day, and she borrwed my n97 for taking pics. it came back to me after 3 hours. it was fully charged and still in full charge. when i woke up this next morning, i played a couple of n-gage games for 30 mins, i noticed that the battery slashed 1 bar already (86.3% power left). no problems at all, except when i open the task manager, a whopping 10 apps are running (apps include internet, music player, and a paused movie) through out from last night till early morning!!! i was amazed coz i experienced no lags or any problems unlike my past smart phones. BTW the ram left was 3MB before i closed all the apps...
The Nokia N97 is an absolutely great mobile! It gets even better after updating the latest required firmware. You can get use to it in a few hours though once you truly know your N97, you can greatly exploit it's features...
Gautam Thukral, 11 Jan 2010man! this phone sucks! its just been a couple of months in use and the colour of the side volu... morewhoa!! i believe that besides plastic, n97 is made out of chrome and stainless steel. i can tell because i live in a freezing cold location, and the chrome and steel parts of my device becomes terribly cold while the plastic stays in normal. I have sweaty hands too, and my finger print always stays on the chrome part, but after a few wipes, its looking new again...
Larry, 11 Jan 2010So what happened to the firmware 2.1 update? Some mobile sites were claiming it would be avail... morethink not, mine is still v12, no updates yet, my product code is seriously behind
How can you tell if this is an original Nokia N97 not the cheap China copy.
So what happened to the firmware 2.1 update? Some mobile sites were claiming it would be available at the turn of the new year. Anyone been able to update yet? I had to hard reset last night because my phone wouldn't reboot. I tried the memory card trick for almost an hour, all to no avail. Luckily I backed up my stuff just the other day. I just hope the new firmware fixes this reboot problem - even if it's only temporary! I don't switch the phone off in the usual way anymore (don't use power button) but when I want to reboot, I use jbak taskman. That usually works, but last night it didn't...
I LOVE THIS PHONE... guess mine is the original N97 no complain, guys make sure u have got the original phone not the cheap China copy.

yo nokia get your fingers out and do something about your flagship modle phones plz as they are the worst phone on the market. i was sitting on the bus the other day tryin to open my music player and the n97 stoped responding to the touch screen then crashed and would not restart so i hard reset it on the bus and as soon as the stupid thing turned on it crashed again so i am demanding my money back as your phone is s**t and am switching to sony ericsson as they are way way way ahead of you idiots.
I wish i have never bought this shit phone. Ovi store too expensive and i couldnt find any useful application there. I wish i bought iphone instead!
man! this phone sucks! its just been a couple of months in use and the colour of the side volume buttons and the camera key have vaporized! very poor in its functioning too! nokia disappoints me...

> heard very dificult to reset this device,
is it true ? aOnly difficult to reset without an internet connection (for getting help via google)
all the info you need is available if you search for it... and I've managed to reset my N97 twice in the last 8 months... now it's running fine (until I try to upgrade the firmware again, that is)
