Review: Nokia N97

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch  

The N97 has a resistive touch screen. It works about on par with resistive touch displays from competing manufacturers. Calibrating the screen is key to getting good performance out of it. I noticed an average number of misreads and had to press the same thing twice on many occasions to get the screen to react. You can adjust the amount of feedback you receive via the N97's haptics, and I was glad to be able to turn it all the way off.

For a $700 phone, though, this thing should have a capacitive screen.
