I played with an N97 for 3 days, also played with iPhone 3GS and trust me nothing beats iPhone. I used to be so against the iPhone, even whent out and bought an LG Arena beleiving what they said about that phone at release. i wish I had purchased the iPhone then although I would have missed the 3GS so pleased I waited.

The main let down on the N97 is the resistive touch screen instead of Apples Capacitive screen. (No multitouch on N97). Another big problem with the N97 is its out of date opperating system and front end.
There is many other problems with the N97 but won't go into them now as pointless really.

5mp compared to 3.2mp makes no real difference as most photo's taken on a phone stay on the phone. The iPhone has a really good quality image anyway and response times are really good. On my LG Arena it has 5mp but the time it takes to take a picture the subject has already moved. I don't get that problem on the iPhone.

You see at the end of the day whenever anyone buys a phone even if they have problems with it they are always going to say its the best phone ever, it beats iPhone hands down, etc, etc. But the tuth is we are still a very long way off of beating the iphone. You might get better at some areas but not as a total package.

Hope this clears some stuff up for my first ever post. Oh and Hello everyone. Look forward to sticking around for a while.

Oh yes and sorry Zeel if It looks like I am putting you down in any way but felt this should be said in an unbiosed way. I have spent lots of time on both phones and are both very current and these were my findings. At the end of the day the screen alone is enough to turn me off. Sorry again and didn't mean to upset you in any way.

iPhone’s touch screen is better, although some of the times I also feel it doesn’t register my touch and swipe as I expect it to be.
There’s still some quirks in the Symbian’s interface that annoys me, especially the single-tap/double-tap inconsistency.
Both are not mine though, so there’s chance I just hasn’t get used to it enough.

Personally I prefer real keyboard (score for N97) and still doesn’t catch the greatness of touch screen (minus for both), so I’d rather look for other cheaper Symbian device instead. But that’s out of context isn’t it.
