Some people like the iphone and some like the n97.
I got myself the n97 I also have the ipod touch 32gb so I do know a bit about apple products.
The screen touch is completely different compared to the iphone.
U should test out the phone before buying it because there are a lot of people who keep on complainting abt it after buying it, I myself did complaint a bit about the battery and my head hurts whenever I use it other than that I am happy with it. I dont think there is any other phone I'd buy over the n97 at the moment.

Confused man, 06 Oct 2009Wat is the difference with the capacitive touch screen, resistitive touch screen, android powe... moreRegarding the screens, here are some pros and cons of both resistive (eg N97) and capacitive (eg iphone) touchscreens:
- Resistive pros: can be affected by fingernail or stylus, better for handwriting recognition (with stylus), more accurate than capacitive, less likely to be damaged by a fall than capacitive, can be used with gloves on
- Cons: no multi-touch, needs more pressure to affect the screen, the softer screen makes it more prone to scratches and fingerprints.
- Capacitive pros: High touch resolution, better visibility in sunlight, can multi-touch, more sensitive and slight touches on the screen are registered, less susceptible to scratches, moisture, grease
- Cons: more likely to shatter in a fall, can only be used with finger
As for android and symbian, they are operating systems (eg Windows and Mac). The N97 uses the Symbian OS (like just about all Nokia phones).
orient, 06 Oct 2009as you recomended this phone over the IPHONE 3GS i will say this i have taken your advise BUT ... moreIf user friendliness is the most important thing to you, then no smartphone out today will beat the iphone. A big part of the iphone's success IMO is that it's straightforward, simple and very user friendly, as well as being attractive.

only the camera is good on the N97
the N97 Is more like the SonyEricsson X1
Confused man, 06 Oct 2009Wat is the difference with the capacitive touch screen, resistitive touch screen, android powe... moreAccording to my general knowledge, capacitive touch screens are more sensitive than resistive screens and they have nice colours (e.g. Samsung Jet). I'm not so sure about sunlight legibility but that's where most brands seem to fail like Samsung. These type of screens can only be used with nothing but your fingers, no stylus, finger nails or any other thing.
Resistive screens require more pressure for a command to be registered but they have the advantage of being able to be used with a stylus, finger nails, etc.
What I've found in the N97 is that although it has a resistive screen it is actually quite sensitive, although not like a resistive screen.
I can't provide you with any info about the difference between the Android OS and Symbian OS, but its like windows mobile and iPhone OS. They have different features and stuff with their own tricks and the works...
Confused man, 06 Oct 2009Wat is the difference with the capacitive touch screen, resistitive touch screen, android powe... moreresistive, can work with stylus and finger, wotrk in cold weather zone and very precise
capacitive not, but more sensitive than resistive,
i highly recommend this phone over iphone3gs
1.iphone 3gs headset is easy to break! easy to get dirty
2. typing long message on the qwerty on N97 is exce3llent
3. the freedom of N97, like 3rd paRTY APPS
4. the Nokia service !!!!
and amny more, resistive is smarter than capacitive , the plastic screen onn n97 is of high quality
Wat is the difference with the capacitive touch screen, resistitive touch screen, android powered and symbian mean?
(sorry for spelling mistakes)
I have no idea wat any of these mean, i want the nokia n97 but i need to know!
All this crap from iphone users is only because there finally something other than the iphone on the market. Sure there are a few problems with the N97 but its still a great phone.
