I do not agree with users saying not to buy this phone! The slow processor is to save battery life and I am a consultant always on the road and the claimed battery life is what it measures up to and all the other bells and whistles with it! Slow processor = longer battery life!!! Try the HTC range if you need a faster phone with crappy battery life! I opt for the nokia, all the features and great battery life!! Do you really need a fast phone!! You surely only use the damn messaging options etc.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970what about the sound quality its very poor... i dont know if they fixed that? but when i tryed the i-phone the sound quality was very low ( i returned it after 2 hours) lol
Jesse, 14 Jul 2009Does this phone supports good internet, is it good in use? Can you use MSN Messenger on this p... moreyes, fast enough, but still wait for skyfire to support n97 and fennec as well
IM messaging on n97 is auwsome because of the slideout keyboard(unlike iphone on screen keyboard which hide 2/3 of the screen size.my god)
and n97 can do video calling voip over wifi/3g by installing the octrotalk(in beta now)
in short, n97 is made for people who like social networking prgram, voice voip video voip, and offcourdse IM
Does this phone supports good internet, is it good in use? Can you use MSN Messenger on this phone? Anyone please answer my questions, really thinking on buying this phone
it's the worst mobile u can ever have , i brought it 3 days ago and it's too slow , restart by it's own specially when ur using the maps application .

Shafi, 14 Jul 2009I am not so sure about what u are trying to say. Probably u got the made by Nokia one. I got a... moreIts the same wether made in finland or china.. and you will find it made in finland or made in china or made by Nokia only. and they are all the same...
and for the ones who are saying the device is slow, IT is NOT SLOW, N97 is working very well and the speed is excellent.
I'm still waiting for vodafone to come and collect my N97 i'm a long timer with nokias but sadly i was very disappointed with this mob. its slow the zoom facilty is poor then takes time to focus and if you like using mobiles with one hand only this is not for you. I'm going back to my trusted N95 until they come out with a better touch screen Nokia
N97,,Unfortuantely this phone is not up to the standard as its was hiked by nokia...no way its not a FLAGSHIP" phone, i really disssoptined after using it ,touch is so so.Phone works very slow...please i recommend not to buy this phone with such high price.
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2009not a head turner like iphones and other smartphones!! You are right, is not as good like Apple Iphone, or Samsung Omnia HD, because the slow CPU, the design is COOL! Satio is also very good, guys choose that model, coz is Japanese!!!
-Buggy phone, considering the amount of time before it was released.
-Videos and photos takes too long to open.
-lack of smart dialing.
-not capacitive touchscreen.
-nothing great in its camera.
-The rear panel had a problem sitting back into the grooves.
-Closing the keyboard has an annoying loud sound.
-dont have that elegant look, not a head turner like other phones specially iphone.
-The History for contacts option is not available.
-Lack of a Visual Radio application.
-No relevant codecs like DivX and XviD for video playback.
-It all supports AV out but no cables have been included.
-The games are not impressive.
-Its business features are limited to a limited edition of QuickOffice wherein you can’t create documents of your own.
NOTHING SPECTACULAR BUT THE MEMORY. N97 IS JUST A PRETTY GOOD 5800 UPGRADE, BUT NOT AS GOOD AND LIKE THOSE OTHER IPHONE COMPETITORS, NOT LIKE THAT.
Hi all, I would love to get this handphone asap but i need to know some of the facts like what is the battery lifespan. Because I don't realli like to charge it after using jus for 1 day.
I`ve bought a black one last Sunday and ny first opinion is that the phone is quite slow, but everything works till now...i think it won`t be necessary to update firmware like others do...
Nokia N97 looks fantastic but should I really border when I'm using my N95?
confirmed by developers, the upcoming applications for this device N97
Coreplayer for S60 5th(late this summer)- Mobile version VLC
Octrotalk for S60 5th(Now in Beta)- video voip
