The N97 also shakes off the legacy of the N-series as sluggish photo viewer. Browsing dozens of photos was almost instantaneous, although zooming in on detail is disappointing.

I found the colour less than brilliant, but not the biggest gotcha.

The third photo would challenge most camera sensors. Yet a good camera should be able to distinguish the house about a hundred yards behind the trees that, to the naked eye, is in sharp contrast, but is lost in the exposure here. And contrary to appearances, it was cloudy at the time this picture was taken.
