Summary: Well i have been using Nokia for as long as i can remember. I had the N 95 ,N 95 8GB ,N96(useless) and now this great N97. At first i thought that Nokia trying touch screen might suck,but i have to say the phone is very impressive and the OS is new version with beautifull colors and easy to operate,look and work with. I dont want to do a review here as a lot of people have done it. Its a great phone if you can afford it ,prolly the best atm.
Summary: My colleagues got their iPhone 3GS on June 19. I had the pleasure to play with them. After one week with iPhone 3GS, I am glad to have my N97. There are no so-called perfect phone. but this is what I can do with my N97, very basic, I can change the battery any time I want. I can pop in or take out my SIM card for or from another phone. I can expand my memory capacity by switching my memort card.
Excerpt: N97=N95 not much more to. they took an N95 and slapped a touchscreen on it. that's such an apple thing to do. disappointed in this phone. it's not worth buying. might as well get an N95 and save a load of cash. the phone locks up a lot and the receiver is super quiet. it's like it can only whisper. what gives. the screen is sensitive and so are the answer and decline keys.
Summary: Okay i'm not going to be like the other who is going to write about so much details that it will not affect us, i will try to talk from user point of view: Good: 1- FM radio, transmit MP3 songs to your car radio ( i love it) 2- 48 GB memory capacity so good 3- Video Streaming from Device to TV and the other way around (Excellent feature) 4- Camera quality is good (Not the best but better then many mobile cameras) 5- Front screen template you can organize it the way you...
Excerpt: Had my N97 for 3 days and at this point I'm ready to call it my 2nd favorite S60 phone ever (E71 is #1). It's the best constructed N-series phone I've ever seen. The problem is that newer E-series phones run circles around the N-series in this department. It's nice but not as solid as the E71 or E75. But that might be asking for too much.
After playing with it for a week and having come from a HTC FUZE

Excerpt: Pros Great Battery Life Great screen response and color Awesome capabilities Amazing keyboard Best signal reception on phone I have ever had Cons Not as adaptable for programs as I would like Not enough contol over personalizing phone First off, I am sorry that the other guys had issues but that is not the Nokia N97. Mine is not buggy, just the opposite, it is dependable and smooth.
Excerpt: high-end phone my rear-end. this phone has nothing to offer. it's basically what you can find in the N95 & N96. nothing has changed it's all the same and Nokia thinks that the human population is bunch of dumba***s that'll by the samething in a different looking package. way to go Nokia, you're the next Apple. 5Mpx cam and it's more grainy than a sandy beach. dual-led can't flash for the life of the phone yeesh!
Pros: large screen
Cons: it's a N95/N96 repackaged with a touch screen, Nokia is runner up Apple selling people the same thing in a different design., Sony or Motorola is number one and i regret leaving those two companies
Excerpt: i buy phone, no like it. it very bad. too much slow. no good slide. battery over heat and cause phone crash. why nokia make only garbage? screen is bad, it need have more pixel and be more bright. touch screen is no good. dual led no make good flash. camera picture quality bad and grainy. my old phone do the better job. why nokia no improve? Nokia make apple shItPHONE look good. that very bad.
Excerpt: wow i can't believe all the hype over this phone. it's garbage. i regret buying it. wow i can't believe how much it sucks. it's not fast it's slow. it lacks power. the battery isn't great, it runs down fast. the slider is weak, it's just a small piece of plastic. the keyboard is annoyingly small and your fingers end up hitting multiple buttons at the same time.
