New N97 reviews I agree with and disagree withWhile lying in bed in the trailer this morning I was browsing my RSS feeds and found a couple of Nokia N97 reviews from sites I enjoy reading. Eric Zeman posted his N97 review over on Phone Scoop while ZOMG its Cj posted their first impressions. As I explained earlier in my first week with the N97, I have most all of the same thoughts as the ZOMG its Cj article.

I have to say I was a bit surprised by Eric’s feelings regarding the hardware, in particular this paragraph:

The fit, finish and materials of the N97 don’t live up to the $700 price tag. Truth be told, I’d be ticked off if I paid $700 for this phone, at least as far as the hardware is concerned. The plastics are thin and feel cheap. The battery cover feels downright flimsy. There are odd gaps where the two halves of the phone meet. Frankly, I am stunned at the poor craftsmanship. Nokia can do better.
I actually think the plastic is very high quality and while the back battery cover may be flexible it feels like plastic that can take a beating and never break. I like the matte finish of the plastic used on the N97 and to me it feels like high quality plastic. I also have no odd gaps where the two halves meet and it is consistent and perfect all around (even after my big 4 feet drop). I honestly think this is one Nseries device that has an outstanding build quality similar to an Eseries device and find it to be well worth the price, in terms of hardware quality.

The recent firmware update fixed my issue with the keylock and at this time the only real issue I have with the N97 is the low amount of RAM.
