OK....I got rid of my N97 mini
I had several problems with it, but I dont know if the problems were unique to my phone only or others have the same problem.The device has some good points too, but the Cons really stick out. This is the List:
1- Not satisfied with the Reception. I lost a few antenna bars in a place where other nokias had full antenna.
2- The phone was super slow, lags behind.
3- Touch screen had a mind of its own, sometimes when it was in a good mood it would respond, sometimes it just wont and I had to wait a few seconds for it to realize I am addressing it. To top it off the vibra effect just didnt work sometimes , and that along with the system lag created the impression that the phone is not responding.So I had to press multiple times , but that started other applications. Imagine this when it happened to u when u are driving.
4- I had wifi issues. It lost connection with me sitting 3 meters away from the modem. That happened when I was upgrading the phone to the new version( 11.0.045). Imagine the frustration when realized I have to start downloading all over again.
5-There was a bulge on the earpiece above the display. When I first bought the device my first impression was its the design, but then I pressed it, it stuck in place a few minutes and the bulge was gone, but then again it stuck out . Faulty manufacture.
5- Its very difficult to say which side is up and which side is down when the display and key light are out.
6- Very slippery.
7- Sound quality not as expected.
8- No Facebook or AccuWeather application , so I dont know whats the meaning of lifecasting.
9- I payed a good sum for it, but when I try to connect to OVI store I get the message "This Service is not available in your area."
I am telling u folks , maybe these were the problems unique to this very phone I had. Lets see what others got to say

im using my nokia n97 mini to write this...... It is an amazing and spectacular phone... Perfect... Better than i phone....... Tons of things to do......i recomend it to anyone
After making so many questions I just brought HTC hero rather than Nokia N97 mini. Hero has capacitive touch rather than resistive touch screen. That's why which is much faster than N97 mini. Hero also has greater processor, cooler music, and more features. So go for. HTC.
kijoo, 13 Feb 2010Hi guys,
I just bought n97 mini yesterday. Overall, the phone is great but I am not quite ... moreIve had n97 a week and so impressed i sold it to buy the mini...I have shook violently my fone and theres no sound at all and no bulges its pure flat from top to bottom..Mine is second hand and is white on vodafone and gorgeous with stainless steel battery cover like my e72..I dont think audio is as good as n97 or battery life which is understandable..
I really want to buy the samsung omnia hd its getting good reviews but its so expensive and my trusted second hand sites have STILL never had one in..That means people are satisfied and no one is selling them or theres not many being sold and the second hand value is too poor to sell due to big loss in cash ..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I bought mine through ebay at PhP 20,400 only with official 1 year nokia warranty. If you buy it at Nokia, it is around PhP 26,000.00.
its a goood phone i reallly liked it and the touch screen his just good not so gooood as APPLE IPONE....
I just bought n97 mini yesterday. Overall, the phone is great but I am not quite satisfied with its build quality.
The first thing I noticed is the bulge at the top left of the phone (near the ear piece).
Second, there are visible distracting LED backlight peeking at keys 3,4, 8 and 9 of the qwerty keypad.
I looked for photos of n97 mini in the net to confirm my observations and it seems that these things are common.
Can somebody tell me if their n97 mini also has these design flaws?
Call me meticulous but I think with the cost of this phone, the build quality should be near-perfect, right?
have just updated my fone with the latest firmaware 11.0.045, and all problem like white screen of death, etc. have been resolved... now once again i'm lovin' my fone : )
The phone doesnt come with conversation recorder , but you can always download the recorder application and use as what you want' Its simple.
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2010hi, my mini is 4 days old i just love it . The only problem is my battery . It 'nt big enough ... moreIt will get stronger after its 10th charge,When i got mine i flattened it in about 14 hrs but now i get 2 days with it..I dont mean its shot to 48 hrs but with quite a lot of usage i can get 2 days with it..so it will last a day with heavy usage which is typical of all smartphones today..
