Nokia N97 – Mobile Phone

Tech2
12 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This review maybe a little late but I had to wait for Nokia to officially launch the N97. I like doing things by the book. But for this particular review, I decided to be a wee bit unconventional, so I'm writing it from the handset itself. These notes will be emailed to my editor from the phone. Form Factor Let me just get those off my chest – I was a little skeptical of the N97's 3.5-inch resistive touchscreen working out too well. For the record, it's brilliant.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The N97 is a fine device for Nokia fans, but it needs more work to become a true competitor to the Apple iPhone or Palm Pre.
  • Pros: Excellent QWERTY keyboard. Preloaded apps work well. 5-megapixel camera. 3.5mm headphone jack.
  • Cons: Processer is too slow. Symbian S60 doesn't translate to a touch screen well enough. Software can be buggy at times.

Nokia N97 Review: In Depth

Recombu
22 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The long-awaited Nokia touchscreen smart phone has arrived, providing a new take on the Communicator series with a Qwerty keyboard hidden under the screen for easier messaging. Add a highly configurable home screen, decent music playback, GPS and – above all – Nokia's intuitive ease of use and the Finnish phone-co could be on to a winner. What We Like Although it's good to look at, most of the N97's strengths lie under the surface.

Nokia N97

CNET
20 February 2010
  • Summary: While the Nokia N97 is packed with features and offers the freedom of an unlocked phone, its clunky touch interface, sky-high price tag, and outdated operating system make it hard to recommend when there are better touch-screen smartphones on the market.
  • Pros: The Nokia N97 features a touch screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, and 32GB of internal flash memory. The smartphone also offers 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS and comes equipped with a 5-megapixel camera.
  • Cons: The N97's touch user interface isn't well integrated and can be inconsistent and confusing, especially compared with the competition. We would have preferred a capacitive touch screen instead of resistive.

  • Conclusion: Touchscreens are all well and good, (and the N97's is good) but this handset makes QEWRTY keyboards fashionable again. A superb multimedia phone from the Finnish phone giant with but a few minor imperfections. Here's one in the pips for you, Apple.
  • Pros: Nokia's been at the forefront of mobile phone innovation for years. Or at least it was before the iPhone sauntered in. It's taken a while, but the Finnish phone company's now thrown in its own iPhone equivalent - the all-powerful N97. First up, that delicious 3.5-inch touchscreen may not be AMOLED, but it is highly responsive and images taken by that five-megapixel snapper look super-sharp, while video is more than impressive, shot at widescreen 16:9 as well as standa...
  • Cons: Not too much here, to be honest. If we're being really picky, the secondary function key is hidden away on the right-hand side of the phone. Surely a more natural fit would have been to position it on the left-hand side? Hmm? Also, while this does come with a slew of apps, the Ovi Store is still no match for the iPhone's App Store. That said, give it a few months and hopefully it'll be bursting!
