A Week with The Nokia N97 from Vodafone

A few days ago and just at the moment that Vodafone It released the information we gave to learn about our readers of the N97 mini with this operator.

We have been able to use during a time the new phone that should already be coming to stores. We clarified before entering matters that the profile of this editor may be more than one user in the series and with short experience in Symbian. Do you mean this? You are likely not make a review with the depth of a specialist, but that it will have the added value of being closest to a user who chooses to approach their Vodafone shop and done with this phone, we will thus evaluate the learning curve.

General experience with the Nokia N97 mini

We have already mentioned in the introduction, we’ve set up the phone to make a revision in our daily use, we have not tried to imagine a different user.

For this purpose we have installed

  • Fring and Nimbuzz for the use of instant messaging.
  • Gravity for Twitter.
  • Google Maps.
  • Screenshot for screenshots
  • GooSync, a payment solution to synchronize contacts and calendar with Google services

In addition you have configured three accounts of IMAP mail and Exchange mail with the native Symbian application.

The phone already comes with the latest update of the operating system, it is fast, delays in the opening of applications except your Internet browser are not noticeable. The giro between horizontal and vertical position is performed without delays.

Hardware of the Nokia N97 mini

Differ from the? N97? It is the recurrent question that everyone has made us since we have in N97 mini in our hands. Nokia insists that they are two different products with different target audience but if we think in the N97 mini as the continuation of the N97 We can say that the duties have been made. The finish is very good, the phone feels solid and the smaller size for us makes it much more comfortable in the use. Even just a particular aesthetic change of the rear plastic cover by a metal is a step forward.

Instead, some considered that the disappearance of the retractable cover of the lens of the camera is a step backwards. The feeling of being before a phone in which affection has been still in accessories with the headphone WH 701.

Another detail of finish is there are no tops of rubber or plastic for the connectors which makes smarter phone. We also note the absence of any pointer either classics “ sticks ” or in the form of plectrum guitar like that included in the 5800 or the N97.

And data in regard to the N97 the differences in terms of size are: 4 mm shorter, more narrow 3 mm and 1 mm thinner. Weight 138 g from 150 of the N97. They are not big differences but having them in hand are two phones more different from which a priori might seem.

Must also highlight the difference in built-in memory, 8 GB mini front 32 GB in the N97. In any case mini memory is expandable with micro SD card (it seems are not included in the sales package)

We now show a small tour in video hardware

View the video at the original site.

As shown in the video that comes very well configured for use in Spanish with key unique to the Jan and streamline accents script, simply press the accent key and a vowel as if we write with the computer say the keyboard. And the space key to right is no coincidence as we explained in the video.

Keys are not very large but the same separation minimizes click errors and feedback of the keys seems appropriate. One of the things that tends to occur in the sliding keyboard is that the upper part of the phone annoying typing in the top row, is not the case. If the keyboard has some glue on our part it is typical of the size of the phone that still being content makes sometimes the thumbs do not reach very easily the keys Central. In regard to weight with the keyboard open, this is balanced and must not make efforts to hold the device.

New Internet services Vodafone, homescreen

The N97 mini It appears on the stage in which Vodafone bet decidedly on the Internet on the phone one of the examples is Vodafone 360. The N97 mini includes the new Home screen which already discussed.

In it and block are shortcuts, my stuff, Widgets or access to the services of Vodafone such as My Web (a customizable browser start page) or Vodafone Music.

This editor is not a big fan of the customizations of the phones by operators, but in this case ease of configuration of the same provides a utility plus telephone, hand having what we want.

Final prints

For our part any hits to hardware and finish, this is a very good phone. On the operating system we can enter into the realm of speculations on whether Symbian is obsolete or not or if Nokia abandon it in favour of Maemo.

Not to speculate, we can honestly say from the point of view of a user coming back to Symbian After a long time and coming from much simpler phones and regular user of other systems is that in the case of the N97 mini gives the size.

We have not missed less any provision that we already have in other phones though perhaps not like us that applications that better unfold on Twitter or instant messaging are paid for.

It is an off the charts at some point? As we have said since then it is in finish, is very well done and in operation experience is balanced, does it all and does it well perhaps being that the experience of web browsing using the original browser less we liked.

It is a good camera, is a good media player and of course is a good phone.

The combination of touchscreen and physical keyboard gives much game and have seen no need a pointer except for web pages, it is difficult to mark some links.

Over the duration of the battery, the Achilles heel of new smartphones includes it in the Middle, not stand out on the negative because of its low duration, in our usage, which is hard went us well.

In general we will deal with this point and others more specific such as photography or multimedia in more detail in future posts.
