Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The Nokia N97 looks really good, and has many useful features. Camera, is clear and excelent.
Bad points:
Battery life is really poor. I charge my phone over night, and without a doubt the same time the next night my battery is flat and needs charging again. This phone goes really slow, and sticks alot. The background on the phone has burnt into the screen so you always see the home page in the background.

Kerry, Cork Basic text and chat user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Phone is easy to use and easy enough to figure out even before reading the instructions. Fantastic for all the things i've needed it for; email, internet, facebook (tho havent figured out how to check my groups yet).
Bad points:
The battery life is fairly short, but once you get used to using it you get to know the 'habits' of the phone and how long you have till it needs to be charged again, but this is the onle problem i can report on! :)
