To Help "Secoh"

ARDA A., Newegg
27 June 2010
  • Pros: Although Nokia does not support a lot of languages officially and they the phones you buy within US are locked for mostly English, you can use Nemesis Suite to manipulate your phone and change it so that next time you update your phone (or just reinstall firmware) through Ovi suite, it will chang...

Rubbish - I Agree

Jaco Laubscher, Phone Arena
23 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Freezing constantly. Key lock broke off. Can't end a call because the screen is blank for at least 15 sec after the call. You are constantly waitng for the phone to wake-up, maybe it is made for people that think slowly, but for anybody with a bit of motivation in life, this is a frustration.
  • Pros: Keyboard, Big screen
  • Cons: Everything else

Surprisingly impressed

Randalyn A., Newegg
21 May 2010
  • Summary: I wanted a quad band phone that I could use outside the US. I travel a lot and spend most my time in other countries. I'm also partial to sliders. The problem with my iPhone and a lot of other phones out there is that they do not have sliders, and if they do, they're very uncomfortable (I'm looking...
  • Pros: Stylish design, comfortable QWERTY, IMPRESSIVE camera, front facing camera, easy to learn OS, lots of free apps, workable MS Office, quad band
  • Cons: Only comes with one game (and a horrible one at that), Ovi Store has not been working for me AT ALL, no cover for the camera lens, horrible front facing camera quality, GPS takes forever and a day to get a lock, no multi-touch

great phone, best touch screen yet

arden b., Newegg
7 May 2010
  • Summary: Best smart phones ever. Lousy phone tech support, almost worthless. 32gb! and sdhc! Wow. Have I mentioned super multitasking??? Wow. I am on my phone nearly 8 hours at a min a day and this phone keeps up.
  • Pros: multitasking MONSTER. Best I've ever used. Rarely crashes; if it does it boots faster than any smart phone touch screen I've ever seen. way faster than any blackberry! Faster than the E72! almost as fast as the e63. Many programs avail. Mostly logical layout.
  • Cons: Some illogical software layout specifically in the calendar (wont auto find phone numbers, web pages etc) sometimes combersome multitasking tho for the most part it remembers right where you left off. GPS needs improvements, not always 100% accurate, also once you enter an address to get to it is...

Big money out - Big problems in: No foreign languages in input

Oleg A., Newegg
23 April 2010
  • Summary: (cont'd from cons) Yes, you read correctly: express statement that Nokia is not going to, and will not do anything to fulfill a post-sale service in this case. 4) As far as I am unable to return this piece of poorly designed device for money refund, I consider the above as an example of unfair...
  • Pros: A phone with 3G.
  • Cons: Although the phone supports multilingual characters in screen output, there is no way to perform true multilingual INPUT from keyboard. Unless you are using only English (Netherlands, Portugal, French and Hispanic) language - and NEVER use anything else - you are in trouble. You would expect that...

Excellent Navigation Phone

Joseph C., Newegg
17 April 2010
  • Summary: My only nag is that N97 mini is a little slow with satellite locking when only using its built in GPS. I have a Bluetooth GPS receiver from my old TomTom application that I used with my old Palm Treo, and I use this in conjunction with the built in GPS receiver and have no problems now.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, feels that you got what you paid for. OVI Maps Turn by Turn Navigation for FREE!!! Text messages spoken back, and a better speech application than my Blackberry Curve. I had been reading a lot of reviews about the N97 mini since Nokia decided to give OVI Maps Turn by Turn...
  • Cons: Have to wait a while for the GPS to lock onto Satellites before you can start the Navigation Program, and it has a hard time doing this inside.

Good product with some shortcomings

Anil Lewis, Amazon
17 April 2010
  • Summary: I was always impressed with Nokia phones because first they are known to make very good "cell phones", however, when I bought the N97, I was depressed as I had put in [...] and the phone would freeze on me and had issues with the camera also (all software problems)When Nokia announced the major...

Best Nseries phone!

Kazi Shantonu, Phone Arena
13 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Well, this phone is good for playing music. The best is that it has 32 GB of mass memory. It has also got a 5 Mega Pixels Camera with Carl Zeiss optics with Dual LED flash. One more thing i liked about this is that it has got a FM Transmitter buit-in.
  • Pros: 5 Mega Pixels Camera with Carl Zeiss Optics, Full QWERTY keyboard, easy to use, 32 GB of mass memory, Web browsing and watching videos on the large screen is delight
  • Cons: Limited video codecs supported, Automatically connects to WiFi nearby, can't disconnected, Unwanted screen orientation rotation automatically
