Ah, the irony. Let's go over this again for the hard of thinking: both these phones are terrible. Touch is pointless. S60 5th edition is appalling.

Buy an N86 8MP.

It sucks.

It is running S60 5th Edition ergo it sucks.

I'm still waiting for this ridiculous touch fad to pass.

Yet another person who clearly hasn't used Nokia's best handset.

My biggest gripe with the N8 is the fact that it's a touch UI. I still cannot believe people prefer touch screens...

Size doesn't matter (within reason)

If you can read what you want to read - where's the problem? :con? It's all well and good boasting lovely big screens but when the interface is so unintuitive (S60 5th Edition for example) it's...

Can anyone verify that there will even be a v.31 firmware update? I'd hate to think that people are being palmed-off by Nokia Care staff who actually have no idea what's going to happen.

I don't see how giving advice is selfish. Far from it. I wouldn't want anyone else to be lumbered with such a hopeless device as the N97mini.

An update in the most minor way possible. Trust me, you'll regret it. The widgets are pointless system hogs and with the latest updates the 5800 is closer than ever to its N series brothers.

N97mini predictive text nightmare

So, what's the deal?

When using the predictive text for messaging why on earth does the stupid software pick the last punctuation mark you used?

It's really, really, really annoying.
