I have been using the N97 for a while now. Here is what I thought. the camera is great, music experience is also wonderful. people often complain about browsing experience but i love it. You just have to know your way in and way out pf that. The phone was slow when i first got it but i moved all the apps from the phone memory to the mass memory. Now it's faster than ever. And what surprised me was that I used to think the Iphone was way faster before i used this phonne and when i went back to my friend's iphone to play with it, it was slower. I am not making this up. If anyone wants to buy this, i strongly recommend it. The update that's coming up this october will once again make the N97 one of the best smartphones.
i got N97 and mixed reaction. both loving it and hating it. Its slow, freezing sometimes. and Nokia support on this phone is bad. I think they r working hard on N900. shame. This is a Flagship for Nokia but as we all see they already forgot this phone. shame.

Mine is made in Finland, but I really dont think it matters where the phone is made seeing that there should be supervision to ensure quality. Enjoy ur phone(s).

Raja Khalil , 12 Sep 2009I want to know the Nokia N97 screen is as big as Apple iPhone 3GS or the Samsung Omnia HD i8910I bought N97 so did a few friend of mine a month back in India. Out of the box and it hangs on its first boot up. There after always hanging. 3 patches updated but no use. My friends with similar issue. Its a very hurriedly put up phone that was long overdue in 2008 so features are out dated compared to smarter phones announced in past 3 months.
Nothing is impressive. You better have a 20/20 vision bcos this phone has very small (micro) icons and name tags on icons are not readable with magnifying glass. I am kicking myself for buying this phone at Indian Rupees 33K. ( approx US$690/-)
I BEG YOU TO STAY AWAY FROM NOKIA N97. Unless someone lets you have a test drive for free on N97 you dont even touch it.
If you want this phone, well you better think again!
Take a look at this complaints:
Nokia adda flick scroll to firmware 2 for n97
now the only thing nokia needs to do to n97 is to redesign the official icons to make it more stylish and elegant!!!! It is important! Isn't it can attract some people to buy it ????
yup, 13 Sep 2009Yeah... All the Iphone is, is a damn fashion trend. I can't believe you fell victim to it. Jus... moreRockstar games seem to like the iPhone because they are releasing GTA Chinatown Wars for it.
Don't worry someone will probably put a Zippo application in OVI, it about all this POS is capable of running with it's absence of graphics, lack of RAM and slow, old last generation ARM 11 processor.
Have they got native Skype support for this thing yet or do you still have to go through 3rd parties like Nimbuzz or Fring?
