bought the n97, i waited forever til it finally came out, but once i got the hands on experience it wasn't everything that i hoped for. it's not bad but can be better.. what i really dislike bout the phone is the keyboard.. the keys don't feel right when you press them.. the space bar doesn't bother me but you have to press the sym button to have some keys inputted.. for ex: the (')
this phone really sucks!!! keypad really hard to use plus the camera was so dusty; old school type N series...
I just bought this N97. Could anyone tell me how come my phone has only 3 themes Nseries 1,2,3? According to this description there are 8 preloed themes?
NOKIA N97 is the best one?
I DON'T THINK SO..
im really dissapointed with this new N97. the reason is :
1. the TOUCHSCREEN is using old technology, N97 is using resistive touch screen which makes it hard to touch, not as good as iphone which use capacitive touch screen. if you have an iphone, you could feel the difference. iphone touch screen is much better.
2. the qwerty keyboard position is not convenient. the space button is located on the right side, not in the middle. its very irritating.
3. many bug on this new symbian OS.
actually i was going to buy this phone, but after i heard this news, i think iphone is better.
i hope nokia can do better for the next model.
This phone is far from being a flagship. First of all lack of RAM then faulty hardware (camera gets scratched because of shutter cover and affects photos badly). I sold my N97 cos of this. I believe the N86 suffers the same lens problem.
I've now had this phone for a few days. Up until then i was using the E71. My first initial thoughts are the phone is very good & even though i've never had a touch screen phone i've become very used to using the N97. For those going from the E71 to this phone you will have to get used to the slightly different user interface. The size of the phone doesn't bother me & I do like the keyboard very much indeed. Overall a very good phone even though i've used it for just a few days. I'll keep you guys posted on my experiences as time goes by.
one more month, we will hear big announcement from nokia world 09
n97 is 2008 flagship
nokia must annouce a new much better phone than this

MEDHAT ISMAIL , EGYP, 24 Jul 2009hi every 1,i bought n97 twice & i found a big deffect in backlight in both.sometimes i push th... morePakistani but mine for East Africa Region Black, britness and sharpness worse than 5800 looks blurred, made n China annoys me could not resist waited for 3 weels but finish never available.
why you get both in batches something fishy might be stickers pasted. Even ver 11 updated but screen same blank even releasing unlock button.
must be having same fate of 5800 knocked out half price within 3 months, should be settling at 400$
I have just got N97 on Contract with Vodafone, could anyone tell me please if the GPS is free/built in.
Beware, ALL N86 and N97 Nokia phones have faulty camera shutter. Dust particles get trapped between the lens and the camera cover. When you slide it, the lens gets scratched and it affects pictures. Just google "N86 lens scratch" or "N97 lens scratch".. Very big hardware fault and Nokia has to fix it. DO NOT BUY do your research first!
