N97 Top-end Trashcan

Ervin, Phone Arena
15 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Was very happy when i bought it. Later was extremely disappointed with its performance. Never buy this phone even at a steal price. Its such a headache to charge it. The phone has hardware charging issues which wont resolve even with the latest firmware. Even if u repair it, the problems show up again just because it charges off its micro usb port. An individual charging jack is missed & its the biggest design flaw.
  • Pros: Camera, Keyboard, WiFi, Fast GPS, Brilliant Display
  • Cons: Micro USB charging, improper flash design, Battery backup, Mermory issues

Good CV doesn't mean it'll do the job

Joe Scope, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: The phone has a brilliant feature list, and will look very appealing on paper, but when it comes to using it, it can be one of the most frustrating phones made in a long long time. Even after two major firmware overhauls, the operating system is unstable at best and will reset at least once every ten minutes you spend on an internet application.
  • Pros: Camera, sometimes., Sharp screen, when it wakes up., 32gigs, not that it's capable of doing much with it.
  • Cons: Doesn't, in all honesty, work

Rubbish - I Agree

Jaco Laubscher, Phone Arena

  • 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. Don't go near this phone. !!!!
  • Pros: Keyboard, Big screen
  • Cons: Everything else

"Would not recommend this over priced mobile phone."

  • Pros: It is not all bad some features I did like is its key board. Furthermore, the online Apps are going live on the front page. One does not have to touch an icon. an icon.
  • Cons: Bad coverage, bad and outdated OS, software that do not work or unreliable. Slow or what you call lag and the poor slow touch screen. Service is so bad I went and bought an IPhone.

  • Summary: "Coming from an N95 8GB, I was very excited by the N97 and found the wait untill I could upgrade to be very tedious. However it very quickly became apparant that the N97 was a dog. First as supplied it was very buggy, running out of RAM, dropping calls, freezing the works. I upgraded to the 2nd generation OS as soon as it was released. Some of the issues improved but not enough.

"Great multimedia phone..."

Vincenzo_23, CNET
2 March 2010
  • Pros: The phone has great multimedia features, call quality is good, speaker phone is good, full qwerty keyboard was nice to have.
  • Cons: The user experience is just awful. The phone crashes, freezes, and forget about web browsing; the browser will crash constantly! The interface is not intuitive, and its response to tapping is not very good.
