I'm using this cell since 3 months, having no problems yet. I've both 97 & mini. Both works nice, but the only problem for me in 97MINI is its battery as compared to 97, as I'm a heavy user of mobiles, cant live without them. E7 is a better alternate for 97 freaks. So dont think too much if u wanna buy any of them. All r better options, in case of symbians. (I wrote this post through my Mini)
My teacher in English - Atanaska Rashkova or Putko Mafani has this phone. This is so stupid she should not have it, this is very good phone but not for my teacher Putko Mafani ,bye P.S.(She loves to drink coffee and her mouth smells like she ate shits from cow [doh] okey you're right)
Please dont buy this phone, its really horrible compared to the user experience of galaxy or iphone or desire.
If you still want to buy nokia better wait for N8.
Lynne, 30 Sep 2010Does anyone have anything good to say about the Nokia N97 mini? I was going buy one this week ... moreDont be disappointed by disillusioned people, who comment negatively about phones they dont own because they cant afford. Its a beautiful device, and you would not regret buying it. As far as hanging and freezing is concerned, it may happen with sets issued by service providers who tweak with the software and do not allow you to upgrade to newer softwares. Get a factory unlocked set sim free, update the software and viola!!! Enjoy N97 mini.....do tell me about your experience !!!
Lynne, 30 Sep 2010Does anyone have anything good to say about the Nokia N97 mini? I was going buy one this week ... morei'm using it for 1 month, had no problems with it so far, except for the battery, which could have been heavier. i'm having no other problems described here, but that may be due to the fact that i unpacked my mini, charged it full and first updated the firmware, formatted the mass memory and gave it a hard reset before starting to use it.
Does anyone have anything good to say about the Nokia N97 mini? I was going buy one this week but am very hesitant after reading so many negative comments. Please enlighten me!
Jacob Zuma, 29 Sep 2010Which 3 fones do u think rival the n97 mini, i need options.samsung omnia hd, sony ericsson satio and last but not the least, moto droid. All three are better. but if you look year 2011 in prospect, N8 and samsung galaxy S holds the key.
I have a Simple question (which might help few people to take decision whether to go for this phone or not)...How do you call 800 NISSAN or 800 LG on this expensive N97 Mini Phone? Can anyone suggest me?
Kim, 27 Sep 2010Guys does anyone know of the mini giving earphone problems. . . ? I have just returned my and ... moreWell, I m using N97 Mini from past 6 months. Earphones supplied with the COSTLY N97 Mini are pair of CRAP! SHAME NOKIA! The sound quality is poorer than the cheapest of the Chinese headphones. I m an avid Music Lover and earlier had an xpressmusic phone (I think 5310). I still use the earphones supplied with that phone. They are working excellent. But let me comment, the clarity of Music is much better in a CHEAPER xpressmusic phone than N97 Mini. 5 MP Camera gives good videos but not-up-to-mark Images result. Overall N97 Mini is NOT a Value for Money.
how do i turn OFF the dictionary (word options) when writing a text message. It annoys me greatly.
Khijir Ahmad, 28 Sep 2010This set is good for working with QWERTY Keyboard with sliding angle. Camera is good. Fetchers... moreI don't think it is an issue with your phone. Bcoz many of my frnds including me facing the same problem in different phones. So I think that it is an error with opera.. Just try re-installing it..
this fone is really jhantoo, piece of junk. Symbian s60v5 has failed to deliver... slow and boring.
the phone is good but littile bit slow, and the wifi net also slow then e series
This set is good for working with QWERTY Keyboard with sliding angle. Camera is good. Fetchers are good too.
But I am facing problem with data connection. When I am browsing on Opera mobile/mini some times the application closes without any reason. Sometime it happens it I fold or unfold the slide.
And the other major problem is with it's microUSB port. Sometimes it connects and sometimes it doesn't. Same for USB charging or charging by original charger. For last few days Original charger is not working with it. But this charger is fine with other sets.
N97 mini's battery sucks a big time. Set also hangs frequently and screen is scratch prone.
Even E72's battery stays longer than n97mini's.
When you manufacture a set with big screen and with multitasking abilities, u also need to complement it with big battery (like original 97's battery) and more RAM and processor (like omnia HD last year).
Looking forward to N8 and E7 really. Expectations are high.
