For example, I have no problem with the touchscreen being resistive because it might be the best resistive touchscreen I've ever used. I'm also a little bit surprised with his complaints about the body. It's disappointing that the N-Series development team has not found a way to equal the products created by its E-Series counterparts but I can't go as far as to say that I think the N97 feels cheap (other than maybe the battery cover).
