Nokia N97 Mini (unlocked)

CNET
23 August 2010
  • Summary: The Nokia N97 Mini is a more stable and better designed device than the bigger N97, but its Achilles' heel remains as the confusing user interface keeps it behind today's leading touch-screen smartphones.
  • Pros: The Nokia N97 Mini improves on the design of the N97 with a smaller size and a more solid construction. Performance is also better and you now get free voice-guided navigation via Ovi Maps. The smartphone continues to offer a full range of wireless options, e-mail capabilities, and a 5-megapixel camera.
  • Cons: The user interface still has inconsistencies, making the phone frustrating and confusing to use. The phone's Web browser is a bit clunky to navigate and there's limited support for video codecs.

Nokia N97 Mini Review: In Depth

Recombu
20 July 2010
  • Conclusion: As the short among us will confirm, good things do come in small packages. And despite the issues with apps and over-thinking, the N97 Mini is a nippy little phone which is not unpleasant to use. It’s a real shame that apps-wise the handset simply isn’t a contender. In today’s post-iPhone world that might just be a deal-breaker for many.

  • Excerpt: For those of you who read my review on the Nokia N97, you’ll know that I was not too pleased with the handset. I was a bit skeptical after the introduction of the N97 Mini as to whether or not it would exceed the expectations I initially had for its bigger brother. Well here’s my opinion. Form Factor The new shape is absolutely brilliant. It’s so much easier to mange this device than it was the first.

  • Summary: T he Nokia N97 Mini with its small dimensions is an nice option when the original N97 is not wanted due to its format. All its onboard functions make it a true all-rounder to the user. OVI-mail can be set on the active home screen as email program by default, so you don't miss any incoming mails. Thanks to the full QWERTY keyboard, writing messages is no problem at all. Furthermore, you can add several Widgets to the home screen.

Nokia's N97 mini is, as its name suggests, a more compact version of the flagship N97

Good Gear Guide.au
3 September 2010
  • Summary: Nokia's N97 mini is an improvement over the highly disappointing original, but this is merely what the original N97 should have been in the first place. There are no real groundbreaking or innovative features, but the mini remains a solid, if unspectacular smartphone.
  • Pros: Smaller design is an improvement, solid keyboard, responsive UI, live widgets on home screen, Ovi Maps navigation
  • Cons: No innovative or groundbreaking improvements, no FM transmitter, poorly designed power button, resistive touch screen

  • Summary: The N97 mini is better than the original, but not so when compared with smartphones from other manufacturers. Its S60 OS helps the mini feel like an old phone even before it hits the stores.
  • Pros: Strong physical design, Excellent hardware/connectivity, First-rate battery life
  • Cons: Series 60 OS feels seriously out-dated, Business productivity tools need attention

Nokia N97 Mini

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The N97 Mini offers a lot, there is no doubt about that, with a spec sheet that contains pretty much everything you'd expect. The form of the phone - side slider - isn't one we are opposed to and the build quality and design is pretty good. But the screen really lets things down. Having grown accustomed to the sort of response you get from a capacitive display, the N97 Mini is always going to be a step behind.
  • Pros: Build quality, all the tech specs you could want
  • Cons: Poor touchscreen, keyboard not the best layout, OS feels a little clunky and outdated, little wow factor
