The phone is just great!!! Especially for those who like nokia... you're gona love this phone. I replaced my N82 and didn't regret it at all. Besides some minor glitches that I guess will be fixed in the next update the N97mini does everything and has everything. Music, emails, apps and all the everyday uses. If you can afford it buy it. Just do it!!!!
its gr8 and forget bout those sayin it isnt bcos they are thur ones hu are neva satisfied wif wat theyve got
OMG, the processor's so jurassic, the RAM's too small, certainly a no buy!!! better wait for symbian 3 fones if you're bent on a nokia. let us not support their lousy products so that their engineers will think...think...and think!!!

It's very similar to n95. Nothing fancy. A nice gimic is that it will read your messages to you. If you like eye candy the iphone probably looks more pretty.

I upgraded to a N97 Mini from a N95 8gb and am happy with my upgrade. I think it is worth the upgrade. Below are my impressions.
N97 Mini advantages over the N95 8gb:
Larger screen. Music player is vastly improved and headphone volume much better. GPS gets lock really fast. Free voice navigation. Charges off usb. Battery life is better. No more wobbly slider! Camera just as good with a added functions.
Why I picked the n97 mini over the N97:
Better keyboard and much better size and weight. No lens cover - ironically the lens is more likely to be damaged with the sliding cover. My N95 8gb lasted 2 years without one mark on the lens.
What I don't like:
Poor visibility in full sun light. The inability to change the keygaurd lock timeout period. It can be a bit laggy at times but coming from an N95 you'll be used to that - it's not that bad. The memory management isn't as good as the N95 but it is adequate. You'll only hit trouble if you go stupid and try to see how many apps you can open. I've been able to run several apps at once and it did ok - not as good as n95 8gb though.
Would I recommend it to someone else - yes.
Would I recommend it to a super user? My advise to the real super user is test it in a store first. Real hard core users very hard to please and won't be happy no matter what you buy. You could do worse and get an iphone.

pH1, 21 Mar 2010You are wrong! Samsung Corby has resistvie touch screen.Samsung S3650 Corby, Samsung M3710 Corby Beat has a capacitive touch screen.
useless phone . it is acopy of the samsung fv700 and this phoone is streets ahead. I cannot read my mail it is so small and for two weeks i am trying to enlarge font or zoom in. It hangs continuously turns it self off and the battery life is a max of one working day and that was with almost no calls. the wireless is on and off all the time and this was one of the main reasons i bought it. cant read my facebook in fact i keep getting error messages useless im going back to my blackberry storm
can i ask u all a question? can n97 mini play poker game in facebook?
It has hanging problems...sometimes...its restarts itself...or some of the features don't work. You have to restart it again to fix it..but...features are awsome...gr8 keypad and other options... u can take it if its a gift...want to buy it think twice....:)
i have had this phone for a week now and golly!!
this phone is so awesome. people should really get away from apple and go with something like this.
This. Rocks. Mini style!
