I upgraded from n85 1 month ago. I didn't quite have a good reason, n85 is a good phone, however I guess it was the hype that drove me to change it and the touch experience. I was doubtful for a while, considering the rather bad reviews of the predecessor n97, so I couldn't make my mind between...

Not for me

ProMakes calls and sends texts

ConsEven that can be hard sometimes

My problem is that I need a phone that makes calls and sends texts, but when I look on my providers website for a suitable handset, I'm enticed by fancy phones which promise to do everything for you. These handsets inevitably fail me and are never strong enough to withstand a lifetime in my...

My personal experience to this phone is framed in the context that I'm a Mac user coming from the iPhone 3G. I've own both the original iPhone and the 3G models, however I've become a bit bored with the iPhone interface over the past 2 years. My contract was coming up for renewal and the 3GS's...

I have this phone on contract for £25 a month with inclusive minutes and messages - if I wanted to add things like the internet then I would have to pay more per month, however as it has WIFI I can use the internet in my own home for free by using my own connection. When I first got it I paid £10...

Consa fair lot of problems

This was my previous phone and I must say that in many ways I miss it dearly, however I can also say there are some aspects of the Nokia N97 mini that I certainly do not miss one bit. The reason I chose to purchase this model at the time was purely because of the qwerty keypad and the fact that...

I have recently bought the Nokia N97 mini on contract and I have rather mixed feelings about the phone. It is the first N-series phone to use touch-screen which works absolutely brilliantly as this was one of my concerns. It is fairly easy to navigate your way around the phone and the symbols are...

It is simply a great phone!!!! For some people it might take a little getting used, but given the range of features that is hardly surprising!! It's jam packed!! The QWERTY keyboard is allowing me to type text in a fraction of the time it used to take me , this also makes internet usage so much...
