ok to start with this phone isnt perfect. there are some slight bugs in it and the processor isnt always the fastest but the odd glitch is to be expected with a new phone like this.
now to the good stuff. it looks beautiful. with or without the keypad out it still looks great. the touch screen works well and is very responsive and the qwerty keypad (the main reason i bought this phone over the iphone) works brilliantly in txts or email or anything.
the ovi app store is still not that full but its getting more and more and time will add to it.
all you could want in a phone here and all works well.
brilliant phone

Had this phone for a while now and since many peoples seem to b going wrong thought id give my experience. phone is still going strong. had small issues like trying to free up phone memory and transfer everything onto mass memory but thats just me not knowing how to do things.
still love the phone and still think i made the best choice. only phone out there i would even consider trading it in for is the nokia N900. hard to reccommend this phone as i know they have problems and dont want to help people to get annoyed but if ur willing to accept the chance of faults ur in for a great phone. flawed but very lovable

  Great Phone

I love Nokia anyway and love the N series but this phone is great. It has everything you would need and more. Not had any problems with it.

  Do NOT Buy This Phone

| | See all Larko82's reviews (1)

I am now on my 2nd N97, which is now broken as when I i turn the phone on it just shows Nokia on the screen and nothing else happens. With my 1st N97 the touch screen stopped working completely. A few of my friends have had this phone and have had problems with theirs. Do not buy this phone, there are too many faults with it.

I would rate this phone with "0" stars if that was an option.

Full of bugs, even now after firmware 21. Sending my second one back after the keypad locked up. Have 2 in my house and they've both been back several times. Avoid!!

iv had this phone bout a month and felt i had to share my opinion wiv future buyers. i was fiending for this phone for 4 months before its release. countin down the weeks. iv gotta say that its not worth the money. it shud be perfect in every way. but i find that the only thing you are paying for is the touchsceen and the qwerty flipout keyboard. its usually a pain browsin tha net even hooked into my landline hub. i cud do pretty much everything else on my SE W 910i. ha ha

I dont have a lot to say about this phone, so i will keep it brief.

For those of you who want a phone with no problems, this isn't for you. Here are the problems i experienced while ihaving the n97 for 3 weeks brand new...

-Constant freezing, and having to take the battery out for the phone to restart...

-Assigning a ringtone, to then be embarresed by the default nokia ringtone overriding your selection...

-Email not configuring properly and constantly having to delete and set up your account...

-The nokia music manager is terrible, and i found it confusing with what data i had put on the phone...

To counter all of these problems you will have to take your phone to a mobile repair centre and get it updated, which i personally didnt have the time or patience for.

Hope you take all of this into account before purchasing. Thanks for reading.

  nokia n97

| | See all happymon's reviews (3)

now on my second N97. very buggy, even after firmware updates. also known issue scratched lens. Cause by lens cover. also outdated hardware cpu 434 MHz 128mb is the same as 5800 nokia. 32GB of storage just seems wasted on this phone.The Resistive touchscreen is inaccurate. and sound quality on head phone is poor. its such a shame as i am (was) a big nokia fan.

  Really great handset!

Having gone from N70 - N95, N95-8GB & N96 to this I have had a fair few N Series devices, trouble is they all seemed to have a rubbish battery life.

I am very impressed with the battery life on this model, even after moderate usage I am seeing a good couple of days use, which is very handy!

Overall the combination of the qwerty keybard along with the touchscreen I find really easy to use, you also haev the ability to text just via the touchscreen with a T9 dictionary interface which is very nice :)

Small vibrations as your touching the device let you know your input was fine.

Watching programs on it or films is great given the good sized screen, also with the 32GB of internal storage it swallows up any type of media you throw at it.

A great phone and can recommend.

  better than i thought

better than i thought it would be after alot of bad reviews, people saying it crashes etc, my one has been fine i updated the firmware and runs smooth as a whistle, miss my iphone a bit but you could not send picture messages on the 1st gen one an the cam was pony, but the cam on this is wicked as just got rid of my htc hero as you seem to need real stedy hands to take pics with it an was missing a flash. pic come out blurred. this is like another phone i had the nokia 5800 music express its like its big brother with a keyboard, all in very happy, had a good few different makes of phones but come back to nokia and will stick with nokia. ps love the slide out keyboard get on with it eaisier than i thought i would.
