Summary: This is my 4th Nokia phone (6630, N70, N95, N97), and it's true. it's pretty underwhelming for a "flagship" phone, but it's not bad. To make best use of the phone, upgrade firmware to deal with serious bugs and remove web widgets from home screen to maximize RAM.
Pros: Hi-res screen, keyboard, hi res camera sensor, good browser, useful homescreen, fm transmitter, FM radio, huge storage, expandable storage, proximity sensor, GPS, magnetic compass, dual band US 3G support, mature OS
Cons: low free RAM, slow CPU, ancient UI, buggy pre-installed firmware (update before using), flash too close to camera sensor
Excerpt: It is not doubt about Nokia N97 is a good phone with having good features and many more but the battery backep of this phone is very poor. This is true that multimedia always having less battery backeup so I am suggesting that the Nokia has to make the quality battery backeup of Multimedia phone if...
Pros: Phone is good, but network connections is not. Problem to switch between Fifi and 3G. Never switch automatically like in Iphone. Store is terrible. Always asking your password and reconnect all the time to download application. Some futures are good , but in average if you work with stock market ...
Summary: I don't really see any reason other than price to not buy a Samsung i8910. It uses S60, with a few front end add ons, it has a larger screen and is AMOLED, which means better colors. It has twice the RAM, a dedicated GPU (same as the Iphone 3GS one) and a better processor (similar to palm pre/3gs).
Pros: The hardware keyboard is nice since many smartphones are moving to touch only. The screen is a good size, a bit narrower and longer than the iphone. Tons of storage, decent battery life.
Cons: There is a huge list of usability problems with this phone, but I won't bore you with several paragraphs and just summarise by saying Nokia really needs to do a significant overhaul of S60. I think they are planning that but I don't know where it places this phone, considering the phone has a slo...
Summary: Most of the software on the phone requires you to have a data plan(hopefully unlimited). Wish they added a function where I can use the camera flash as a flashlight.
Pros: 32 GB of space Light and compact good phone camera (2 camera on phone)
Cons: The cons in my opinion is price and the OS on the phone. The OS seems to be more outdated when I was using this phone. There also seems to be a lack of certain helpful software that should come with the phone like a calculator or timer. The phone also lags a bit when I open and close it
Summary: I absolutely hate touch screens, yet I bought this phone. Why? This is a question for Nokia: if other people hate touch screens like I do--and they do--why do you think they'd buy the N97 with its inferior resistive touch screen over the iPhone's superior capacitive screen?
Summary: When I first learned of the n97's release, I was excited. I had been waiting for Nokia to release another ground-breaking phone, like the n95 of years ago. The n96 wasn't it, nor was the n85. Then the n97 came - with a touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard to boot!
