For those who followed my personal blog, You might have know I've recently bought a Nokia N97 mini. Have been using it for about 2 weeks, here the list of 5 things I hate Nokia N97 mini.

Uncommon Charger USB Port

  • Nokia N97 mini used mini USB port for data communication and power charging but the it's an uncommon one among it's family.
Not Lasting Battery
  • The battery it used was 1200 mAH but would need to charge the phone daily with only some basic usage.
Low Random Access Memory (RAM)
  • Nokia N97 mini and it's elder brother N97 has only 128mb of RAM. It was always a hunger for it to run/execute apps.
Naked Camera Lens

  • Dust and scratches always are the main enemy for the unprotected surface.
No TV-Out  
  • TV-out cable were removed in the packages.

What do you guys think? Feel free to drop me you comments here.

A charger exchange program started for a limited number of Nokia-branded chargers. If you have a charger type AC-3E, AC-3U or AC-4U you should visit the Nokia charger exchange website to find out how you can check whether yours needs to be replaced. The exchange program only applies to a restricted number of chargers manufactured over a short period, available in a select number of countries.

During a routine quality control process, Nokia identified a potential product quality issue with certain chargers manufactured by one of its third-party suppliers. The plastic covers of the affected chargers could come loose and separate, exposing the charger’s internal components and potentially posing an electrical shock hazard if certain internal components are touched while the charger is plugged into a live socket. Nokia is not aware of any incidents or injuries related to these chargers.

Only a limited number of chargers of certain model types manufactured by a single third-party supplier during a specific time period are within the scope of the exchange program. They are the AC-3E and AC-3U models, manufactured between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009; and the AC-4U model, manufactured between April 13, 2009 and October 25, 2009.
If you have one of the affected chargers, we suggest you stop using it and exchange it for a free replacement. You can find out if yours is eligible for replacement from the Nokia charger exchange website or your local Nokia website.

I believe most of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic user out there would have not satisfy with the quality images output from the 3.2mp Carl Zeiss camera.

Here's a tweak that would improve a little of the photos quality.

Below is a comparison that I've done before and after the tweak. No editing applied beside the watermarks.

exif details and the size of the photos before and after.

What I can see here is the size of the photo has been increased, the ISO speed has been reduced to kill the unwanted noise. The details and shadows has slightly improved. The contrast increased as well.
