Summary: on the first phone it didn't work properly and even though the seller replaced for free. the second one broke 3weeks after its arrival, the slide lock no longer works the mechanism broke off. so No I don't like this phone now. before it broke yes it was nice.
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.
Pros: Camera, Keyboard, WiFi, Fast GPS, Brilliant Display
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I sent three of these things back due to defects. I have been the proud owner of an e71, N95, N95 8gb and not so proud owner four N97s. The phone has giving me nothing but problems from memory loss to software bugs(that have mostly been cured by the resent firmware updates).
