Not as bad as some of the reviews suggest!,
This review is from: Nokia N97 Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I carried out lots of inquiries from different phone shops concerning the nokia N97, unfortunately none of them has better review about this phone.All seem to be negative.I remember some guy from an orange shop refering to the N97 as'rubbish' when I mentioned N97, did'nt even finish my sentence.
Adamant not to subscribe to the Snobby Iphone niche nonesense, wanted an alternative that can challenge apple so-call 3gs. bought the Nokia n97. On trying to familiarise myself with the features, experienced virtually all the Negative reviews posted. i.e the freezing mid way through application and switching off and rebooting.
Nokia is renowned for their sophistication and craftmanship in mobile phone market. How did they get this wrong? well I suppose, in trying to stop the Iphone from market dominance, the N97 was launched too soon without proper testing.(emphasis is mine)
Nokia has dedicated a special hotline to solve the N97 glitch. ring up and get instructions on how to update the device from the present version. alternatively insert the Ovi cd, connect the device and update.
I have not experience any problem whatsoever since updating to software version v11.0.021. The N97 is a good buy.
