After having a look at a pre-release model of the Nokia N97 (you can check the review by visiting the link), I thought I might have a go at Symbian again and purchase my own N97. I mean, it's been a while since I've had a symbian phone and honestly, I miss the numbing simplicity of Symbian.
Of course, since what I've first seen is a pre-release version, I can't exactly base my next purchase on that phone I've seen so like any other good consumer, I scoured the net for N97 user reviews. At howardforums, they have an official thread of Nokia N97 bugs, issues and problems. Most common issues include the phone bricking after installing some apps...Not a good sign. There are like, 38 pages of issues, I know that most of the conversation doesn't revolve around the N97's bugs but as I browsed through them, it seems like hardware buttons and bricking are the most common problems.
Not a good sign. I'm being turned off as I read through the thread. On the other hand, I always buy my Nokia phones with a warranty so if any of these issues happen, I could always return mine. Anybody else have bugs and issues on their N97?
