The Nokia N97 is a spectacular handset, one of the most modern Nokia launched. As a Nokia N97owner , buying this handset was one of the best purchases I made! The phone has almost everything you would expect from handsets in this category.
Carl Zeiss Lens with Nokia
The N97 camera has a Carl Zeiss 5 Mega Pixel lens with auto focus. The photos taken with the N97 are really sharp. In addition there is also a powerful flash that ensures good quality photos even at night. No doubt I can say that the N97 ties with some models of CyberShot cameras sold by Sony.
The videos recorded by the N97 also do not leave to be desired, being of a very good quality, unquestionable when it comes to a cell phone. Videos recorded by the N97 do not look like “mobile videos”. It just does not have optical zoom, which usually does not exist on cell phones yet. It also has 2 cameras, one of them frontal for use in video conferences.
Another important issue of the N97 camera is that it starts very quickly. Just open the lens cap so in less than 2 seconds you can take a picture or shoot! Very fast indeed! Do you know those times when you need to shoot at the time? In some cheaper cameras, the time to connect is so great that it makes these photos unfeasible. With the N97 you can shoot almost instantly!
Big, touch-sensitive screen is another cool feature of the N97. The screen has good resolution and brightness. Good contrast even in the open, as it is automatically adjusted by the light sensor of the device. The clearer the environment, the clearer the screen. In dark environments, the brightness of the screen is decreased to save battery power and do not overshadow the eyes! The N97 has a full keyboard, but with the touch screen the use of this keyboard is often optional. All buttons and menus can be accessed directly on the screen and at the time of typing a full keyboard is displayed! Simple, efficient and easy to use!
Keyboard under the device, slider, QWERTY! The N97 gives an ergonomic show on this built-in keyboard! When you slide the screen to display the keyboard, the screen sits at a 45-degree angle , making viewing easier as you type. In addition, this position is very good for letting the device stand on a surface to watch videos. The keys are well spaced with relief and excellent tactile feel. They are also illuminated. Typing numbers and special characters and uppercase characters is made easier by the shift key as on any computer keyboard. There is also a directional with central button, very useful for control in games and navigation in general.
Stereo speakers with volume and fidelity. Unlike the Chinese phones that extrapolate in the decibels but lose in fidelity, the speakers of the Nokia N97 provides excellent sound quality. All the audio part of N97 is good. Even using the headphones it is realized that the audio quality is superior to other models in the market. Combined with the FM radio and the ability to keep 32GB of movies and music inside the handset, this phone’s sound system makes it perfect for multimedia use!
Nokia FM Transmitter
FM Transmitter! I kept wondering what the use of it would be, but in the car it’s great. You can have audio from your phone sent to your car radio. This allows you to watch movies and listen to songs that are on your phone with the power and sound quality of your car! It may not seem like it, but it’s really cool! Just using it to see!
Other qualities of the Nokia N97
Standard connections for headphones and charger make the N97 even easier to use and compatible with existing peripherals. It can be loaded while connected to your computer, something you will often do to download your photos and footage and organize your library of music and movies.
Communication Wi-fi, 3G, Bluetooth and several others! Whether you are on a wireless network or through your carrier’s 3G or GPRS connection, you are always connected to the internet! The connection speed is excellent and it is very easy to manage which connection to use! The microphone of the Nokia N97 phone, with good noise cancellation, can even be used as a computer microphone without losing anything compared to the best microphones on the market.
Maps and GPS released, even with voice navigation! The N97 GPS allied to Nokia Maps software guides you with voice commands through the streets of the city! Just look up the address and turn on the navigation system. No internet connection required for this, all maps and addresses are stored inside the device itself!
Thousands of free apps are available for the N97 and Symbian in general. With the 32GB of memory of the N97 , space for applications is what you will not miss!
