Phone was good. But i got a defective battery from the seller so i have to return it

Shun, Amazon

  • Summary: The phone was very good. All the features were working very good. The only reason i returned back the mobile is because of the defective battery. I got a battery with outer cover not wrapped up properly and the small plastic piece at the end of the battery is very loose.

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

Joe Scope, Phone Arena
12 September 2010
  • 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.
  • 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
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

Nokia N97

  • 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.

It just isn't good.

Kevin Nicholls "jaded, aging hipster", Amazon
19 February 2010
  • Summary: I've got a BlackBerry Bold , as well as an iPhone 3G. I'm not writing this review exclusively for comparing the N97 side-by-side, but given the price of this phone, the bar is set reasonably high.

I would not buy this phone again

hal96a "hal96a", Amazon
5 February 2010
  • Summary: I wanted an unlocked Smart phone, and didn't want Windows Mobile, and of course iPhone was out. That left Symbian or first release of Android. N97 ended up in my pocket. First, the good. Except for the minimal memory this hardware is tremendous.

Nokia N97 - Is it the right Qwerty plus Touch screen phone

S. Pandya, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: I ordered this phone from Amazon assuming that I am getting the right phone as I am used to Palm lines of phone with both Qwerty and touch screen phones and I wanted an unlocked one with the same function. There were issues with Nokia.
