Nokia N97 has been the company’s complete feature loaded Smartphone. Its also Nokia’s first Smartphone to use the touch interface on a big screen. Nokia has put a lot of effort onto this phone and has been awaited quite patiently by many hardcore Nokia fans who did refuse to switchover to any other touch screen cell phone brand.

Design and Looks
The phone is designed with a slide out Qwerty factor and is completely made out of plastic. The materials on the side are neatly put across and hence give a nice look to the phone overall.

The most of the handset is covered by the 3.5” screen which is a 16M color resistive touch screen. The screen outputs a resolution of 360x640 pixels. The screen supports good contrast and brightness features.

With regards to its touch screen the phone uses the resistive touch screen compared to the capacitive touch screen used by the Apple Iphone. This means that a little more pressure is required on the screen for a tap. The phone improves itself with the screen sensitivity and therefore does not make use of a stylus. Haptic feedback is enabled and vibration intensity is adjustable with three different levels.

The phone slides with a QWERTY keyboard which is a good feature for heavy texters. The buttons on the keyboard are very thin and thus reduce the typing speed. The distance between the keys is more and can take time to move around with the keys. The noticeable feature is the backlighting on the keyboard which is a treat to the eye and at the same time makes it very easy to read in the dark.

The phone house the 5-megapixels camera with autofocus and an LED flash, but falls short of some of Nokia's more photography-centric devices. It's certainly sufficient for taking outdoor shots, though the LED flash demonstrates the usual minute sweet-spot outside of which subjects are either washed out or dark. Still, colors are generally well preserved and the autofocus is quick to lock on, and only indoor noise really shows the limits of the optics.

The phone supports a new gallery with touch friendliness by which the pictures could be flipped using a finger. The built in accelerometer helps to switch between portrait or landscape.

The phone has a good built in music player and is touch optimized with this version. Music library is automatically sorted by artist, album, genre and composer and searching tracks by gradual typing is available. All the formats are supported by the player and it also comes along with five equalizer presets. Making a custom equalizer effect is also available. The FM radio incorporates the RDS feature and has a simple interface. The software is capable of recording and storing stations in the area and also has the option of scanning for an alternative frequency.The phone also comes along with a FM transmitter which allows to stream the music on the phone to any standard FM radio receiver nearby at any frequency.

The phone offers a complete connectivity with USB and Bluetooth. Wifi with UPnP is also available. GPRS, EDGE and 3G with HSDPA are supported by the phone. The phone has a memory card slot and is expandable to 16GB.
The disappointing feature of the handset is its browser which lacks touch features. There are no options for fit to width or fit to height which makes it difficult for positioning the text on the screen.

Apart from the browser, the handset features a sound organizer and also has pre-installed Mobile Office which does great with its functionality.

Overall the phone is a great design and storage. There are inconsistencies faced on the touch screen which Nokia should look into. But for the hardcore Nokia fans who were anxiously waiting for a complete touch phone, may forgive its shortcomings. But for all other users there are quite a lot impressive phones available in the same category which might just suit many.
