“Nokia N97 goes to heaven”

published 19/02/2012

Easy to use, robust

It crashes and loses everything!

Firstly I should make it clear that this was not my choice of phone and so as I think that a phone is a very personal thing to choose I suppose I have a negative view of it to begin with but will be honest with you and hopefully point out its good points too. The Look The N97 is now a couple of...

“To many facepalm moments”

published 09/02/2011

Applications

Short battery life, riddled with bugs.

Where to begin with this phone! So many problems and bugs it's unreal but yet I still love it. I have had many Nokia phones over my time right back to the classics of the 3210. I had slightly gone of Nokia with the lack of touch screen capabilities so as soon as I saw the N97 hit the market I was...

Intro Being the previous owner of a Sony Ericsson w850 for over 2 years, I decided that it was time for a mobile phone upgrade. I had a few different phones in mind, the Apple iPhone, Nokia N97, Nokia 5800 Xpress Music and the HTC Touch Pro, in the end I chose to buy the new Nokia N-Series phone...

I have always been a bit of a Nokia girl where phones are concerned, but for a while they had lagged behind a bit in the touch screen mobile market, continuing to release hard button devices. It is no bad thing to continue to release non touch screen phones but I believe it's good to have the...

The flagship of Nokia since June 2009, although now replaced by N900 and N8, I must say N97 is the most beautiful phone I've ever owned. Well, very narrowly followed by Nokia 8800 Sirocco. So I sold my Nokia N82 and LG Viewty Smart to purchase this, Nokia N97, White version. At the time of...

Quite bulky and heavy and can be slow at times

It was about that time for an upgrade and as much as I wanted an iphone, it meant that I would have had to change networks and therefore my number. So when in the phone shop I browsed the various different smart phones available and eventually settled on the Nokia N97. It was available in two...

as a owner and user of the nokia n97 i can say i am overall very happy with the improvements that nokia have made on previous models i.e N96 and N95. Lets face it all of us who went from owning an N95 to what nokia seem to believe was a better model (N96) were extremely dissapointed as although...

The Nokia N97 is targeted towards the techies out there. Just the design and qwerty keyboard make it look more like a micro laptop than a phone. The unit itself has a very good feel in the hand almost like a comfortable brick! That however it does feel like it will last. I owned an n97 for 3...

“Big phone”

published 24/08/2009

Easy to ajust to. Life saver for busy lives.

expensive.

Ok i am a very busy mum so i decided to buy this phone. It is a bit pricey, but worth it. The keys are a bit small if you have big fingers like moi, but you get used to them. I Got mine on ebay so it was cheaper than the retail price, of which i am not sure of, but i got mine for about £130. It...
