Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The reason I would choose the nokia over the iPhone is: the iPhone freezes and requires a restore which takes forever to do. It doesn't support flash and it's browser, the apps crashes and at times you can't get your mail and it dropes calls qite alot. It can't do a podcast update without synching it to a computer, nor can it do a over the air update as well, it has the lamess Bluetooth on planet earth and no flash for taking pics or vids. Need I go on
I was considering the new XpressMusic but N97 really dose have pretty cool stuff and fine camera.. I think I'll buy it soon.
loving this phone
have it for 3weeks now
though still awaits fota update here in oman-so nokia please send it here?
is there a Nokia phone that actually works???? i hear they are the most unreliable phone on the market..
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2009My contract is due for an upgrade and I was just looking around at some of the phones on offer... moreDude, why do you have to read all the blogs/posts to deside which phone to get? All the trolling is about who's balls are bigger. Personally I wouldn't buy any of these devices - too much money/not worth it. But if you are willing to spend 6-700$ go with your personal choice. If money is not an issue choosing between two I'd go for n97, only because here in the States everyone has an iPhone. So getting one now would be like carrying a RAZR two years after release... However it may not be your situation. Ignore the trolling comments and check both phones in a store - it is much more usefull then reading the blogs...
vivi, 09 Jul 2009nokia's OS is sooo miserably poor. The problem of hanging mobiles is so so common. its nothing... moreYou, as a customer is one of the worst out there. If other people using Nokia phones have no problem with their phones, or even they do. They will solve the problem by either going down to the service center or update their firmware to solve the problem. You, a moaner can go back to SE and never touch another phone brand again.
huzefa, 08 Jul 2009Just bought the phone 3 days ago already hang 20 times ……any one wants to buy iti think is really good i bought from u how much u want
Ach mein gott! idiots agonizing over phones having too low on MPs? i mean if you're looking fer something really good with 12MPs then why not just buy yerself an SLR? way better images and way better lens. why settle fer less? having higher MPs on phones doesnt really matter coz there aint no professional photographer who'll rely on a silly camphone to do his shots.
camphones are just fer people who need to do quick pics and take standard shots. a 3.2MP camphone is decent enuff fer most people, if you need better quality then i suggest you get yerself an SLR.
ach it pains me to see how foolish people are today who'll burn money fer something so trivial... @_@
malum obviam malum @_@
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970well im considering buying one because i already have an ipod touch so tbh im over the whole app thing, and i refuse to give apple more of my cash, cos ive bought about 6 ipods. and this phone looks good to me, ill try it out in store and find out for myself i guess
mickey, 08 Jul 2009check your software if your phone is hanging, software problems, no need to sell. check your ... morenokia's OS is sooo miserably poor. The problem of hanging mobiles is so so common. its nothing new.

There are also people who get paid to promote products, including phones on sites like this.
Also be aware that the ranking sytem is rigged, there are fanatics who constantly vote 10, 10, 10 for phones they like and 1, 1, 1, for those they don't like.
The best thing is to read the gsmarena reviews and go try the phones out in a store.
My contract is due for an upgrade and I was just looking around at some of the phones on offer. Well it eventually comes down to choosing an iPhone or N97. I have been on the iPhone page as well as this page, trying to find comments/opinions by the users of the actual phones in order for myself to decide on which phone to get.
After reading some of the comments made by users of these phones, I am completely put off both these phones. I find it amazing how people react over something like so trivial like a cell phone. I know many people and cell phone stores who use this site to help customers research phones before actually buying them. The iPhone comment page as well as the N97 page has become the laughing stock of the net.
The Admin of this site should seriously consider reviewing all comments before they are posted up in the forums or anywhere on this site. People shouldnt be shot down for deciding to purchase something simple as a phone.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2009too slow? too bored?LOL are you talking about n97?LOL i tried n97 in a nokia store, the pics ... moreSo every review on the internet gives it a 9/10 and you expect us to believe you. YEAH RIGHT
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970too slow? too bored?LOL are you talking about n97?LOL
i tried n97 in a nokia store, the pics and videos takes too long to open, and the woman who tried it first before me crushed it down,it hanged up! the nokia guy restarted it!LOL thats nice isnt it?LOL!!
the phone looks cheap, specially when you close the keyboard, its loud! it has an annoying sound!LOL
Nokia and Carl Zeiss planing to introduce a 12 mpx camera in celular phones until 2010, because are developing a better image systems than the others, so we must be patient, maybe Nokia go to the top again with the N98
huzefa, 08 Jul 2009Just bought the phone 3 days ago already hang 20 times ……any one wants to buy itHow much you want for this phone, been trying to get one on o2 contract, phone shops keep trying to get me to leave o2 and then they will let me have on on either Orange or Vodaphone, don't want to change providers, just want to get the N97 on upgrade?
