purple, 13 Sep 2009need opinion... i don't know... which to decide?? either nokia n97 or sony xperia x1... please... moreIt's mainly a choice between whether you prefer Windows mobile and Symbian OS. Personally, I think I like better Symbian because screens are nicer, plus phones are more resposive, yet Windows has a vaster array of pps available than s60v5.
SO although N97 has better specs, it's merely choosing which OS has apps available you like best.
Although currently few apps are available for s60v5, expect it to grow soon.

Does anyone know how to turn the volume higher. I turn it to maximum but still too little... Any code to change??? Thanks
WinMo & Symbian? Depends what you want. For example, if we're comparing X1 & N97 (which I have used both extensively), X1 has smaller screen but the resolution is noticeably better! N97 falls terribly in its screen resolution (for its price, it's quite appauling).
WinMo has its ups & downs, though I would say more downs. The UI is still difficult, fiddly & definitely not user friendly compared to Symbian, a quicker, more responsive & somewhat simpler smartphone OS. There are of course more applications & (fUN) available to WinMo phones, but if you're someone who's looking for simple, quick way to manage your hectic lifestyle & not worry about, pressing wrong buttons or having to wait for unnecessary lags, then Symbian is indeed the one to go for. To be honest, you should try both out before you decide which to buy or to keep for long, but generally, WinMo has a long way to go before it can stand up to the efficiency of a Symbian mobile.
What?? r u on a dillema? between WinMo and Symbian? of course Symbian dude! Dont even mention it

N97 sucks. A phone with lots of software bugs. Even Nokia Care center owner agreed. If you have more then 3 regulars apps open in back ground. like contact finder, speed dial etc, it will hang or will be very sluggish. Look for better optin with higher precessing speeds.
Guys, i had such a very very bad experience with this N97 phone i just bought last August 19th 2009 when I traded it with my Nokia 6500 slide. I found this phone to have a very stupid software in it when i tried to take pictures and deleted them, icons of broken pic appear beforehand. Having tried to get rid of them, a "General System Error" appears. I tried resetting the phone to factory settings, still the problem recurs. I decided to return the phone to the store and took back my 6500 slide, I was charged more than 10% of the retail price of N97!!! There are more other shortcomings Nokia N97 have, just like very poor phonebook features, a very poor calculator, poor text messaging indicator that do not display the number of the source,& a very stupid music player that cannot normally play AAC at 96kbps, plus very poor speakers sounding like music playback inside a tin can! Also, the phone is somewhat slow. Truly unreliable, only with a nice eye-candy design but worthless! I will never recommend this to anyone before they lose some money out of this crap.
hahaha what a phone even 5530 has kinetic scrol which this doesnt have......
Abel, 13 Sep 2009I have been using the N97 for a while now. Here is what I thought. the camera is great, music ... moreHi Apel.
i liked ur review. But the thing is, from a DECENT phone (not perfect) u expect it working a bit fast and no freezings etc when u put it out of the box.yes? but N97 cant give this, why should i CLOSE DOWN APPLICATIONS OR REMOVE THEM FROM THE PHONE TO MAKE THE PHONE WORKING not even DECENT hu?
