Btw there is NO STYLUS OR PEN WITH THIS PHONE so ppl who dont have this phone dont spread wrong info
I have this phone since a week now, and its a very good phone if not the best.
Ppl who think the resistive touch is not good let me tell u a secret, when you tap the screen USE YOUR THUMB NAIL INSTEAD OF THE FLAT OF YOUR THUMB AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE. EVEN SLIGHTEST PRESS WILL NOW REGISTER AND SCROLLING UP DOWN IS VERY EASY SO TRY YOUR NAIL AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE!
Having said that, the slow processor is evident in places which are intensive in processing. RAM is the other thing which nokia screwed up, most of the times its fine but 10% of the time you may run out of memory.
overall its a very good phone with perfect form factor, very good finish, excellent screen, very stable software now, good widgets like facebook, cnbc n bloomberg, and after using the trick mentioned above VERY VERY GOOD TOUCHSCREEN SENSITIVITY. The only areas which are a let down is processor, memory and to some extent the symbian software which is not new anymore. Btw the physical keyboard is very good as well, and ya i am writing this opinion on it, its like a mini pc now! the best phone frm nokia at the moment
How is it possible that the regular N97 is ranked so much higher than the N97 Mini?
The N97 Mini beats the N97 is every way, except for the slightly smaller screen size.
It is much better built, the OS flows better on the mini, the camera is slightly better, it definitely looks better, & the keypad is better with more tactile feedback & key travel.
Why is everybody rating the Mini so bad?.....I suspect it's disgruntled N97 owners who are angry that only after a couple months of the release of the N97, Nokia releases a better, albeit smaller version, of the N97......OR it's SE & Apple fanboys that always hate Nokia, no matter what they release.
Please stop asking is there any style or touch pen=.= there is so no worry
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2010thinking of getting this phone,but it seems it has no stylus/touch pen. pls can some1 verify this?Definitely Nokia N97 mini has a stylus. Its stylus is smaller than original (N97).
Resistive screen is not well sensitive with your finger. However, you can work with your finger/Neil by pressing on the screen rather than gentle touch.
If you want to operate your phone by your finger touch (not press) then you have to buy a Capacitive touch screen phone. Becoz Capacitive screen can detect gentle human touch, otherhand resistive can't.

my friends told me that sony ericson has many problem too.
no one thing is perfect if you love one then buy it.
The battery of a nowaday phone definetely lasts shorter than those released 3 years ago. One can argue that this is mainly because of the much larger screen and the fact of being touchscreen. Since the rest of the features haven't changed a lot (OK, there is a GPS receiver now but who uses it regularly?) and by assuming that the use of the phone is more or less the same(OK may be there is some more internet use now), I can't see any other reason. Besides these, however,the battery life depends strongly on the brand of the phone. Nokia is definetely not good in the battery life area and therefore any product they release (like N97mini) has a weak battery.
If you think the camera quality is not good, dont use the camera button to click pictures,tap the screen to click pictures,when you click the camera button the phone shakes a bit and the picture becomes hassy...Thus TAP THE SCREEN TO CLICK PICTURES
Nwando, 19 Feb 2010the camera quality is soooooo horrible...........so much money poor cameraN97 Mini Camera is not clear like Nokia n95 I mean the clarity .why why why?

i have one question
does the n97 min can handle the multitasking very well
like opening 3 apps or surfing on the internet by 4 pages including video viewing without lag ??? it has only 128 mb of ram and weak cpu 434 only so in daily and business usage would n97 mini lag or it works seemlessly
i got the phone today only nd i think this the best phone nokia has ever made i have use n72 it is not good phone e71 is better than e72 nd e72 hangs lots of time
