Nokia N97 mini review

 

Nokia has lasered the N97 (and its internal storage) with its shrinking gun. But does the N97 mini have more charm than its battleship-sized brother?

Preferable to its bigger brother, the mini is a great all-rounder for those who like their smartphones to strike a balance between features and size

Nokia N97 Mini

 

The Nokia N97 wasn't widely lauded when it launched, not really delivering a flagship experience in this modern world of app-based smartphones. Instead it looked rather tired, offering up a re-spun S60 interface that we've seen plenty of times before....

Build quality, all the tech specs you could want

Poor touchscreen, keyboard not the best layout, OS feels a little clunky and outdated, little wow factor

The N97 Mini offers a lot, there is no doubt about that, with a spec sheet that contains pretty much everything you'd expect. The form of the phone - side slider - isn't one we are opposed to and the build quality and design is pretty good.

Nokia N97 Mini - First Look

 

Nokia has finally unveiled its Nokia N97 Mini - first leaked by a Vodafone Ireland forum moderator back in June - but does it look any good? The N97 Mini is essentially (and the name might have already given this away) the mini-me version of the...

Smooth, shiny and slick

Slick version of Nokia flagship phone arrives to upstage its big brother

Decent QWERTY keyboard ; Large 3.2-inch display ; Wi-Fi and HSDPA ; A-GPS built in ; Good music player ; 8GB storage ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; Excellent build quality ; Homescreen widgets set-up

Resistive display ; S60 5th Edition Relatively bulky ; Wi-Fi could be easier to set up ; Camera flash has limited effect

Nokia N97 Mini (unlocked) review

 

We had high hopes for the Nokia N97 when we checked it out in June 2009. Armed with a touch screen and a long list of features, it looked like the flagship model of the Nokia N series would be a hit. Unfortunately, it turned out to be quite the...

The Nokia N97 Mini improves on the design of the N97 with a smaller size and a more solid construction. Performance is also better and you now get free voice-guided navigation via Ovi Maps. The smartphone continues to offer a full range of wireless...

The user interface still has inconsistencies, making the phone frustrating and confusing to use. The phone's Web browser is a bit clunky to navigate and there's limited support for video codecs.

The Nokia N97 Mini is a more stable and better designed device than the bigger N97, but its Achilles' heel remains as the confusing user interface keeps it behind today's leading touch-screen smartphones.

Nokia N97 Mini review

 

As the name suggests, the Nokia N97 Mini is a more compact version of Nokia's flagship smartphone, the N97. The Mini also gets the bonus of kinetic "flick" scrolling, which greatly improves wb and menu navigation.

The Nokia N97 Mini has a strong set of specs, a variety of multimedia features that work well, and a solid design. And the addition of flick scrolling is definitely a big improvement to navigation. Unfortunately, the Mini is hindered by the Symbian S60...
