Review: Nokia N97
The N97 uses the S60 browser, which has been optimized for S60 5th Ed and touch. The browser comes with all the same features that we've see on other S60 handsets, including the mini-map. It my opinion the browser uses way too many drop-down menus to get to a lot of the features. Perhaps the most useful change is that one of the software controls will open up a big finger-friendly grid for navigating to your bookmarks and so on. I wish all of the menus of the browser were this easy to use.
Browsing via AT&T's 3G network was nice and speedy. Mobile-optimized sites loaded in just a couple of seconds. Full HTML took a little bit longer to download, but they were still comparatively quick. Having the large screen makes for a better experience.

Most S60 phones let you customize a fair amount of the phone's features and functions. Wallpapers, ringtones, alerts, and so on are all easy-breezy. The home page can be set to have as much or little content as you want. The main menu can be re-arranged however you like it. The four homescreen contact shortcuts can be changed up at any time. You don't like something? Chances are, you can fix that.

Review: Google Clear Case for Pixel XL
Google's own Clear Case for the Pixel XL lets users focus on the phone rather than a busy design, but it falls short in covering some basics. It's an inexpensive option, to be sure, and yet you can probably find better ways to spend your money.
