this is the outstanding today i bought that one and then realize this is made for me
I am planning to buy this phone but i am scared as everybody seems to dislike it and just read that it wont last long:/ Should i go for it though??
am planing to buy n97 mini but i guess ppl dun lyk it..!! should i go fr it??
[deleted post]been using the n97 mini for 3 weeks now.
here's my initial review:
the mini is the perfect example of a high-end device. very compact and sturdy, and made by high quality materials specially the metal back cover and frame. seems like a phone that's built to last. it is also very easy to type on the three-row querty keyboard.
camera - though outdated interface, it is still one of the best 5mp camera on a phone, i compared it to my ever-reliable n95 8gb, and the mini wins by a mile.
Audio - the loudspeaker grill in front of the phone (the one you used when you call) is decent and clear.
stereo speakers - excellent stereo speaker while using the headset, however it fails to deliver properly when using the loudspeaker when listening to music.
touch sensitivity - it beats the sensitivity of my brother's samsung jet. very responsive even on a resistive touchscreen.
Battery - with an extensive usage, my mini last only a day, or even just half day (on my first full charge). on moderate usage however, it took me 2 - 2 1/2 days. not bad consider the features it packs.
The user interface of the mini is still unstable, i probably had experienced 2 or 3 lags (though i admit i overused it :-)
There are plenty of preinstalled applications, however most of them needs an internet connection to activate, or some are just a shortcut icons to the website. but hey, the icons still look pretty cool.
Connecting to the internet is really a breeze (via wifi) there are tons of applications available for free download on the ovi store. e.g. themes, apps, games etc. (be careful though that all the things you download from the ovi store goes directly to the phone memory). i suggest you guys to just download through your pc, because the ovi store requires intense patience :-)
Overall it is a very simple-looking but very powerful device..
I would focus more on the software part on my next review. Cheers! :-)
eople can't hear me very clear when I speak on this phone. Looks like the only microphone is the little hole when you slide out the keyboard below the arrow keys. If the phone is closed it covers the microphone and hence my voice is soft to other people. Someone Agree? Comment?
I have been using this phone for almost 6 months now. I loved this phone initially due to features it offered. Wifi, free maps, etc. It worked like a dream for few weeks but after a month or so, I have been facing serious problem with this.
Phone would just hang and it would become absolutely unusable. Touch screen, key pad, nothing would respond. At times things gets normal by restarting the phone while at other times even that too won't help.
Consider the situation that someone calls you and you despite of all your efforts, are neither able to pick it nor disconnect it.
I have visited nokia care center twice and have given my phone for a week each but situation is still the same.
I have this problem with my N97 mini very regularly...
The senders name of the messages received in my inbox is sometimes not displayed when i open the inbox.. Instead only the number of the sender is displayed even after saving the phone number, of the sender, by his name in the phone memory of phonebook.
When i restart my phone.. The problem is solved... and again after sometime the same problem occurs..
Please help !!

Has anyone tried recently released DivX Player v1 on their N97 mini?
If Yes, kindly let me know how is it's performance in terms of handling large files (like 600 MB or more) , video resolutions (320*240 or 640*360/480) and video bit rates (over 500) while playing videos.
Hiii alll, you can also show and hide contents in the home screen by swiping diagonally across the home screen.
