  2. The red and blue phones in the middle of the post are nokia X6. I still don’t understand why Nokia wanted a mini version of N97

  3. Since the start of the recession, pay as you go mobile phones have been very popular. I am hoping Nokia gets wise and start asking it partners to offer the Nokia N97 on the pre-pay plans.

  4. well, the n97 mini is actually a great phone.

    On a different review that i’ve read, the writer had mentioned how Nokia actually had made a mistake in naming this phone the n97 mini in which actually killed the n97 mini’s rep the moment it was released.

    If nokia had named in the N98 or N99 then maybe it’ll be easier for ppl to accept the phone.

    anyways, n97 mini is what the n97 was suppose to be. Great phone.

  5. Hmmm, I don’t know people, but I am very dissapointed with Nokia N97 mini. I am lucky that I am able to return this phone in shop and take some other phone, but after N97 mini adventure, I am sure it will not be Nokia. Also now I understand why Nokia lose so rapid market share. Software on DVD, so slow, updates for PC so slow, opening internet site on N97 mini so slow, phone is not something what you need to buy at all. So from 1-10 (ten biggest and best), I will give Nokia “big” 2.

  6. I hear about many ppl that n97 mini is not so good. I ordered it but will now cancel the order and go for the e72. Im still fan of nokia, but not every phone is good, same goes for every brand. All have good and shitty phones.

  7. The n97 mini is a great phone if you don’t need to turn it off. I have had two in 3 weeks. Both had the same fault. When you turn it off it will not turn back on. Other than this it is a great phone and maybe even up with the Iphone. The App store is cheaper than the Apple one and with new apps every day its catching up with the Apple app store.
    But I have now sent my second n97 mini back and have bought an iphone. I recommend that you DO NOT buy this phone if you want to turn it off, lol.

  8. Hi guys, i have reviewed Nokia N97 Mini. the phone is worth to try. The phone does meets my works. may be my review could help you guys also.

  9. Have had this rnd 3-4 months and i think its good. All i wish for is for the ovi store to improve…thats what really lacks this phone to be great.

  10. wouldnt recommend this phone. It does not get the reception for the network well! (its not my network’s fault)

  11. had this phone for 3 month now and had nothing but trouble cutting people off on phone mid convo freezing all time and picks what ever ringtone it decides to play i really like the style off it but just doesnt work well girlfriend had it two but after taking it back twice she has now got the i phone

  12. i have a n71 with me .it a superb one with no cmplints…but i want 2 use a touchscreen phone…..whts u guy’s opinion…am opting a N97 mini….will it substitute my E71!!!

  13. n97 mini battery is not very good but its qwerty keypad is very easy to use. Touch screen is very responsive and i would say it is a buy.

  14. No, you cannot connect this device to your wlan/ wifi. You can only use the greedy 3g.
    Also you cannot drag and drop 99% of the apps, yep unless you download em thru the 3g
    Big Problem
    The rest is all good.

  15. the mini is a piece of plastic filled with doom and gloom…nuthin but trouble for me…swaps and changes ringtones..battery has the life expectency of a unwanted fetus..and continually just turns off…then has a bipolar episode..deciding when it likes2 turn on….nokia congrates on makin a phone that suks people in 2 buy and then sends the buyer bonkers…500 dollars wasted and nuthin short of a peasant pice of equipment

  16. This is the worst phone I have ever had.
    The hardware is pretty nice but the software is terrible. Battery life is about 5 hours on standby. I have to carry an extra battery and charger with me everywhere I go. What a waste of money.

  17. A formidable share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing somewhat analysis on this. And he actually bought me breakfast as a result of I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the deal with! However yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I really feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If doable, as you become experience, would you thoughts updating your blog with more details? It’s extremely useful for me. Large thumb up for this blog put up!

  18. My brother suggested I would possibly like this website.
    He was totally right. This publish truly made my day.
    You cann’t believe just how a lot time I had spent for this information!

  19. Someone essentially help to make significantly articles I might
    state. That is the very first time I frequented
    your web page and up to now? I surprised with the research you made to make this actual submit incredible.
    Magnificent job!

  20. great publish, very informative. I wonder why the opposite experts of this
    sector do not understand this. You should continue
    your writing. I am sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  21. I am regular reader, how are you everybody? This piece of writing posted at this
    website is truly good.
