Hi to all. For ALL those of you out there in someway interested to the Nokia N97, here's my review and believe me, i'm not going to bluff or hide any mishaps, so here it is....
N97 is simply awesome. Have been using the N97 like a freak: wireless, downloads, new software & games installations, playing the games i downloaded, playing music, touchscreen functions, cameras...The battery kept on going for a good number of days so i'm very happy with its usage.
Even if it is 'still' a 5MP camera, it does the job perfectly, who needs to print pics larger than A4??
I think the mobile works at average speed, ie it isn't slow as some are saying and obviously it cant be fast like a pc, its a mobile after all!!!
The only instances where i had some problems (but nothing permanent) was when i had a number of apps running and it gave me out of memory when i received an SMS, had to close all of them, problem still persisted and then i had to turn it off and on again. And when i tried to save a video over 1 minute, but maybe i didn't give it enough time to process it, i have to try that again.
Final thing is that i like it and will keep it until it goes. btw great toughscreen comodity! :)
Don't buy this!! GO for Apple 3GS or Sony. It's slow and a big waste of money!
NOKIA die hard fan, 30 Sep 2009IB..... Just update your firmware to version 11 or 12 tHIS ur phone problems was only in firmw... moreIt is definitely not the best phone. The hardware is a joke. It's only a mediocre phone trying to market in the field of high end phones, and you're paying extra for that. The hardware is a joke. Even the camera is behind. Samsung and Sony Erickson are at 8MP already and going to release 12MP soon. N97 is still at 5MP. Don't waste your money on this phone!!
Don't fforget n97 ha the best form factor and best design device when it comes to the physical looks
n97 wins in this area
n97 packed with many and decent features
the speed is not too bad after all! Don't play 3d game, it is perfect phone just wait fr the price to go down to the euro350
I have a question! Can we close all Open Programs without third party software????

Anyone wanna help me out on how o play videos on your TV?
What cables are required cos theres nothing in the box
I work with an undisclosed phone shop. I've been recommending the N97 to customers only for the sheer fact that I've not heard any bad comments. Nokia I believe haven't gone downhill, but are producing good service mobile phones. Nokia has always been a good phone producer. The camera is stable. I've had 2 Nokia n97 come thru for repairs, in the last 2 months. In comparison to the say, Ultra touch. The touch screen seems to loose its life within the Early Life Period. Remember, a mobile needs care and attention, cleaning, and looking after.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2009Don't buy N97. Nokia is shifting their focus. If you look at hardware, Sony Ericson and Samsu... moreSony Erickson is not the 1st mobile phone which stepped on to 10MP+ camera. Samsung people did it long time ago.
Janis, 30 Sep 2009I bought a Nokia N97 and after two months I was so disappointed...and after I bought Iphone 3G... moreI agree. Nokia has gone downhill. It has the potential to produce great phones but some unintelligent executive there thinks they can make more money on releasing disappointing phones. There are too many choices now and nokia will find it tough staying in business unless they revaluate their approach and start releasing phones with better spec, as so far this year they seemed to have taken steps back rather than forward. To conclude I returned all nokias I got this year due to hardware or software issues. I would like to talk to nokia design team about their phones. Does anyone have any contacts?
I bought a Nokia N97 and after two months I was so disappointed...and after I bought Iphone 3GS and N97 use with sim2.Rekomend for all not buy yet because it is not Nokia's flagship model, but the company's shame. N97 is big, big s.....
Don't buy N97. Nokia is shifting their focus. If you look at hardware, Sony Ericson and Samsung have much better hardware than this. The price is only a little bit more, but it's well worth it. N97 is nothing more than a nokia 5800 with QWERTY and better camera (but still not as good as Sony Erickson).
Heyyy, the phone is not an iphone killer, but its a new collection to the n-series. So keep that in mind when purchasing the phone. Obviously over usage of the screen would cause wear and tear, so use the stylus...(reason it was supplied with the fone), Furthermore, the fone is functional for internet browsing, and merely misc uses. It had good storage space, and the 3.5mm headset jack so u can play ur music collection. The sound of the fone speakers itself wont be that great coz obviously its a FONE!!! Nevertheless is a gud fone for the collection of Nokia N-Series.
As for the i-phone fans, well go purchase the iphone, obviously, the expense to maintain the iphone in counties like PAkistan and Middle east, Costs get higher. So its a good alternative, if we want to sacrifice on the visual effects and all that jazz.
IB, 29 Sep 2009... and one more: my phone has a strange problem - when I try to unlock it the display does no... moreIB..... Just update your firmware to version 11 or 12 tHIS ur phone problems was only in firmware version 10... Not at all in any other version.... N97 is the best phone yet from NOKIA
