Excerpt: The n97 is truly a gud fone. Might have it's own downsides of being underpowered and expensive nut I think it serves it up with the gamut of features that it comes with. It is truly an all in 1 fone. I would recomeend this. Being a mobile tester myself, I put this thro'the worst stress tests and I must say that the fone has fared pretty well. Can hardly feel it's underpowered. I'd recommend this.

Excerpt: touchscreen is not all that efficient on this phone especially when typing on the touch screen i must always resort to the qwerty keyboard. also it doesn't seem to have the great face detection, i mean when your face is close to the phone it sometimes leaves the touch screen running. Nokia needs to improve and that's something they just aren't doing. the spearkerphone is too quiet even at max volume i can barely hear it. and the headphone jackphone doens't deliver great.
Cons: speakerphone is quiet, headphone jackphone doesn't deliver great quality or loud sounds., touch screen is rather annoying sometimes, camera freezes a lot, one of the LED's already died on my phone, Nokia's employee's are very insulting towards their customers.
The flagship of the Nseries, but not quite the ultimate.

Excerpt: It looks to me as if there are a bunch of people here who simply want to drag the rating down on a phone that is nowhere near as bad as they claim it is. This is from someone who actually has the phone and has been using it for two weeks now. This has been the phone I've been waiting for from Nokia, although it's certainly not everything I want.
Pros: -The sound quality over headphones is by far the best I’ve ever heard from an Nseries, on par with the 5800., - The screen looks beautiful., - Widget homescreen is fantastic., - Touch screen is responsive for a resistive screen., - Call quality is very good as is signal reception., - Camera quality is very good., - Love the UI despite a few quirky things., - The web browser is fantastic even though multi-touch is missing., - This is the best built Nseries I've layed h...
Cons: - Can be sluggish at times if you really multitask a lot., - Not happy about the mic placement., - Stereo speakers have been tuned for voices and not music playback and aren't as loud as the N95's., - The double tap isn't necessary everywhere, but is useful in certain menus., - Could have used more processing power, more RAM, and more phone memory (not to be confused with the 32GB of mass memory)., - Needs kinetic scrolling everywhere, not just in certain things.
Excerpt: why bad phone make nokia? no good. screen damage easili. my phone break in one week. why, becasue phone make very bad. nokia dont put proper make in phone. they make phone like cheese. very soft can squish with hand.
Excerpt: Very well designed phone. i have had many high end nokia devices and this one is on the top of my list. everything is perfect and works great on it. the camera is amazing with two xeon bulbs! very fast responses. The only thing i didnt like about it was the keyboard, maybe cause i still like the keyboard from my Nokia E90 better. have gotten used to it now though. literally is the best phone in the world at this point.
Excerpt: i can't believe they launched this phone. what rubbish it is. who even gave them the green light on it's launch? was it a blind and deaf man. this is just cow dung for a phone. sorry nokia but other brands are making better camera phones with better GPS. and on top of that their batteries are better.
Cons: battery, camera, GPS told me to drive into a wall O.o
Excerpt: nokia is still garbage. i mean ppl only suck up to them because their phones contain so much. And much of what it contains is junk. everything is in there but they all barely work efficiently. the 5mpx cam is worthless, the auto function blows and the dual-led doesn't do much. munually having to set the camera everytime is annoying. the sharpness of the pictures is that great. Sony tops them in this department. the loudness and clarity of the receiver is just on par.
Excerpt: Waited for this phone to drop in price and for the inevitable first FW release. Paid $559 from Dell. I bought two iPhone 3Gs 32GB , sold one and used the other for a week intending to keep it until the first FW was released and I could buy an N97 for less than $600, Both came to be so I sold the iphones and really like the N97. Coming from an N95 I find the familiarity comforting and the upgrade is nice as well. Nokia has a very nice upgrade to the N95 here.
