I have only used the new N97 for a week and overall, it has exceeded my expectation. In terms of the functionalities, usability, and the new features that I have shared with you in the previous pages. Many people ask what the battery life is like. For normal usage – that means a few phone calls a day, text messages, some instant web messaging, occasional web browsing – it can easily last more than 2 days without recharge. But for heavy usage (like me), probably half a day. That is to include music playing, video watching, and heavy web browsing.
N97 does not come with a car charger like N96 does. But it comes with a tiny adapter that convert the N96 chargers into USB as well as a standard N97 USB charger. You can charge the N97 via USB cable that connects to your computer too. That is neat.
N97 has a weight of 150g. It may seem heavy to some but to benefit from the fact that it functions as a mobile computer, I personally don’t mind the weight. In fact, I think Nokia should deliver an external battery pack for the phone. I will certainly get one, for sure.
As of today, there are still some minor glitches with the software and missing applications. I hope in time to come, Nokia will patch it up. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. And I think the white N97 is the prettiest phone on earth.
I hope this article is useful to you. As always, feedback on my article is welcome.
