brad, 29 Sep 2009it is up to you but i will say wait for the n900 i heard that its going to be a great phone or... moreHi brad, i see your replying many questions.
I just read a lot of posts, now I don't know if its true what people are saying abt the n97 or not, because there are just to many complaint, I personally think that 80% and true and the rest are from different brands to make nokia n97 fail.
Now to tell about my expereince, 3 days back I got a nokia N95 8 gb as well as a N97, Im quite happy with both,
I can feel that the n97 is a little slower but it feels nicer than the n95, n95 is old same old menu and well it can do pretty much everything that the n97 can do, or maybe n97 can do more things im not so sure haven't playe3d very much with it yet.
I'd say n97 is a refresh model the menus are a little complicated but it looks nicer than the same old nokia menus and I encountered no problems until now.
The keyboard could take a couple of days to get use to but its fine with me.
Some are saying that the omnio HD is better and faster could be, I didn't look into that but after using nokia for abt 6 years now, I don't think anything else suits be better.
I am a Happy Owner of n958gb and N97 white,
Competing over megapixels is worthless, since 5MP is the most - the most you will ever be able to see on a screen even in next 10 years.
1) Samsung Omnia takes very crappy and grainy pictures when compared to N97.
2) N97 has a full physical qwerty keyboard. Samsung Omnia has a crammed-in keyboard which frankly doesn't work on a capacitive screen (you touch unnecessary buttons by accident all the time)
3) Nokia phones are known for software prowess, while Samsung has customized the hell out of it, decreasing community support.

This is the worst phone I've ever had in my life! I always was a Nokia fan but this phone is such a failure that I seriously consider switching to a different brand. I will not be able to describe all the problems I've encountered with this phone in this message but I can certainly give interested people some idea what they will be buying: first of all, the phone has an usual problem of the smart phones: it freezes out of blue and restarts itself. In some cases after such a restart I had to reload mail for exchange credentials to be able to continue syncing my outlook mail box with the phone.
Another serious problem I face is that, ourcorporate policy on symbian based phones is that when receiving e-mail on the mobile the phone should be lockable. In case if I fail to answer the incoming call and unlock the phone, it freezes so that even restart is not possible. I just have to take the battery out and reload it again.
During synchronization it duplicates the contacts from time to time. I was unable to find out the reason for that.
N97 was meant to compete with iPhone but N97 is such a failure that it is seriously damaging Nokia as a brand and is far behind iPahone.

Vajee555, 29 Sep 2009Omnia HD is clearly better than n97. compare and see by yourself,
Omnia HD over n97
* 3.7 in... morecorrect!
I have been a trick that is better n97 from Omnia HD.
That is a lie!!!
Omnia is BETTER for 2x, maybe 3x ...
For lower price, better performance hardware and BETTER phone,
buy Samsung OMNIA HD!
N97 work for me 2x slower vs my friend phone :(
(He have Omnia HD and play 3D games with opengl etc.)
I spent the money, because i read here that it is n97 better from Omnia HD!?!?
IT WAS A LIE!
Im deceived :(((
Im glad that the opinions were cleared from this part. It was becoming a big joke to the site.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Omnia HD is clearly better than n97. compare and see by yourself,
Omnia HD over n97
* 3.7 inches display (n97 - 3.5 inches)
* sounds effects DNSe 2.0 (Digital Natural Sound Engine)
- Virtual 5.1 channel Dolby surround (n97 has nothing)
* 256MB Ram (n97 128MB)
* HSDPA 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA 5.76 Mbps (n97 HSDPA 3.6 Mbps and no HSUPA
* 8 MP camera with lots of features (n97 5 MP with only Geo-tagging)
* HD 720p@24fps video recording (n97 has VGA@30fps)
* ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz, PowerVR SGX graphics processor (n97 has ARM 11 434 MHz processor)
n97 has 32GB memory. but its not a big deal. you can expand your Omnia HD with microSD up to 32GB.
see yourself, Omnia HD is greater than n97. no matching.
With ION battery? (the one that this phone uses) you still have to charge it for 24hrs once you buy it?? or it is a myth?
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2009Yes that's what 'Flash Lite 3' means. You can view flash content from webpages just like from ... moreCAN YOU USE - BEATPORT.COM - WITH THIS PHONE?
