Blacks are deep, colors are vivid and glare is indeed less of an issue vs. most touch screen phones.

A really nice touch is that Nokia N9 automatically generates images for those of your albums that don't already have album art (such as those you’ve ripped yourself).

Reviews Word on the street for the Nokia N9

The Nokia N9 has an excellent 8 megapixel rear main camera with a dual LED flash.

Unfortunately, the calendar wasn't so easy to sync, but sill performs well, with a split panel view and attractive UI.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The screen continues to impress outdoors in the sun too - it remains perfectly visible, while the colors keep most of their punch too.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)
We measured the maximum brightness of the N9's screen to see how it stacks up against other AMOLEDs and the LCDs.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)
Detail levels are good, dynamic range is respectable and color is for the most part accurate, though at times the exposure and white balance needs a helping hand.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2011)

Operating system

Finally, we came to the multitasking screen, where you see a neat grid of apps that are currently running on your N9.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2011)
And you can easily see why: a spanking new OS based on some pretty impressive (and novel)!
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2011)
MeeGo ordains Nokia's impeccable hardware with a form fitted OS, one that could even challenge the major players on the usability stakes and before we can celebrate, we must commemorate.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2011)


We are talking about an 8 megapixel sensor with a maximum resolution of 3264x2448pixels and a fast, f/2.2 wide angle (28mm in 35mm equivalent) lens.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)
Still, you get plenty of functionality, a Carl-Zeiss certified lens and a sensor that can capture 8 megapixel stills in 4:3 mode, or 7 megapixel snaps in 16:9 or 3:2 mode.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2011)
We complete our tour at the back of the Nokia N9, where we find the 8 megapixel camera lens and the LED flash.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2011)


Hitting that More options button lets you open a new window, share the currently open page (over SMS, email or any of the social networks, where you have registered account), add it to apps or subscribe to it RSS feed (if available).
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)
At least the interface of the store is nicely optimized, so apps are easy to browse.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)
The screen fits 9 thumbnails at a time (or four, if you pinch zoom in), but the list is scrollable if you have more apps running.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)


The rich codec support includes DivX and Xvid and we found that videos up to 720p resolution generally play good with the Nokia N9 hardware.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)
The video player also does an automatic lookup of the video on YouTube and gives you the related videos suggestions on that same details page.
by GSM Arena (Oct, 2011)
In its native WVGA resolution, video support is good for H.263, MPEG4, H.264 BP/MP, WMV9 / VC-1 and Mkv formats.
