Nokia N9 Review

Nokia N9 was one of the most anticipated phones after the widely popular Nokia N8. However, the sad thing is that the Nokia N9 that released silently recently is powered MeeGo, the obsolete OS which Nokia developed after several years of research. MeeGo has been officially cancelled. Hence, Nokia N9 has failed attract much crowd. The phone measures 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1mm and weighs 135g.

As far as hardware is concerned, the Nokia N9 has got the best specs you can find on any other phone from them. Nokia N9 is blessed with AMOLED display that measures 3.9 inches. The capacitive touchscreen is well protected thanks to the Gorilla Glass technology. It has a display resolution of 480 x 854 pixels.

Below the screen, you can find the front facing camera present hidden below the bezel. On the right side of Nokia N9, you can find volume controller and display lock/power button is located. At the base, you can find the loudspeaker. At the top, you can find the microSIM card slot, USB slot and audio jack. At the rear, you can find the 8 megapixel camera. A unique thing about Nokia N9 is that it does not have a removable battery or external memory.

MeeGo is supposed to be known for its simplicity. It gives you 3 screens with a notification bar at the top. When you use it, you will feel that the OS is very promising but sadly its fate has already been decided. There aren’t many apps you can install on this phone and it does not have Ovi Store for downloading apps. There are many apps that are pre-installed on the phone. The phone runs on 1GHz CPU, PowerVR SGX530 GPU and 1GB RAM. The internal memory of the phone is 16 to 64GB.

The 8 megapixel camera functions with a wider focal length of 26mm and is capable of taking good quality photos. The dual LED flash does well in lighting up the environment while taking shots in dim lighting. Even macro shots appeared very detailed. However, the video recording capability of the phone is of average quality. The music player is decent and the sound output is very clear and impressive. Viewing videos on the phone is a good experience. However, video rips form YouTube do not play smoothly.

Nokia Maps is preinstalled on the phone for GPS navigation. As far as connectivity is concerned, the phone has got 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. The web browser is very quick and easy to use. It does not support Flash. The 1450 mAh Li-Ion battery gives a standby time of nearly 450 hours on 3G and talk time of nearly 7 hours on 3G.
