Excerpt: Freezes, crashes, doesn't receive calls! Yes! it sometimes diverts calls to voicemail even when on. This cell may look beautiful, slick and sexy but is completely useless for a power user the hardware cant handle the software demands even the kinetic scrolling is jumpy when the cell has been idle for a few minutes. The battery is appauling and navigation causes the device to overheat excessively (Really! To above 50deg C on the cover!
Pros: Lots of apps
Cons: Extremely buggy, Freezes often, Crashes often
Nice but not the best cell you can get for your money
10 December 2010
Summary: When I receive it I was happy because looks as nice and shinny as expected, the idea of one Smartphone with full touch screen plus full keyword in one cell was very exiting for me... the setup process was easy and fast (I already use Nokia phones for some time so the phone main layout was familiar and easy to learn)... now after few weeks of use I learn that you can't use the office application without buying the license...
Summary: Just so you know before buying this item. I'm not gonna bash about it or say it's the best phone either. Just wanna let you know what happened with some units I bought. When you turn off your device, and then you turn it on again, the screen hangs up at the Nokia Logo and doesn't do more. You have to turn it off again and try to turn it on yet again, same thing happens. Do the same, and one of those times your trying you'll get lucky and your phone will finally turn on.
Summary: I purchased this phone because my N95 8 Gb (4 years of intense use) is now falling apart. Primary reasons on buying the N97 mini: 1) I use navigation all over the world, Nokia is the only phone (nokia maps) that will give you that service, now on the newer models even for free, but downgraded and it's gone to OVI maps, (My N95 did that, but had to pay, but it worked 100%) 2) emailing, so wifi needs to work flawless.
Summary: My first Unlocked Nokia was the E71. I thought that was a solid phone, but felt jealous of all the people with their big screen phones, therefore decided to get the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition...worst mistake I've ever made. That phone is probably Nokia's worst phone in my opinion. The best thing about it was the lifetime navigation license, but what good is that if the User Interface sucked, and was difficult to use. I returned that as soon as I could...sigh.
Summary: Good phone, looks cool, great screen, touch pad works good. The backing keeps slipping, (it won't lock closed very well). The car charger adapter doesn't work (think because of the phone not closing well). The connection to my computer isn't good. I have to hold the phone closed tight with one hand or the computer loses connection.
