hey guys, i want to know which is better...the 5230 or the N81?i can't decide on what to buy since 5700 is already phased out here in the philippines....sucks!
I think this is not because of X-plore, as I tried it in Nokia E51 and it correctly showed 369MHz. But with 5320 it shows only 192MHz. Besides, I tried other softwares like ActiveFile and PhoNetInfo, the results are still the same.
Please read this before you consider to buy one (5320mx).
This is mclaude and here is my review on my 1week old 5320mx.
First the whole contruction it's pretty solid, the size is good enough to hold and the dotted design is a great addition for a good grip. It is made up of glossy plastic its a fingerprint magnet, and its very slippery when you hold it with semi wet hand. The dedicated music botton is hard to use at low light and its leved from the casing it self, same thing at the volume and camera botton. I hope nokia put some backlight on it. The 3.5mm earphone jack is a genuis addition. Screen is small (2")but very brilliant color, pixelition is not that obvious. Keypad is small also, it is somewhat hard to use maybe b'coz I used to use 6260 keypad. Hey! Its a small phone I guess its ok. The ownkey botton at the upper right corner is not that useful since a couple of shortcut is present at the active desk top,maybe when the n-gage software is release then I can put it in action. I hope its free : >. The camera location at the back is ok although I always mistaken that the camera lense is the d-pad when I'm holding the phone at night or not looking on it.You know what I meant when you hold the phone.
I will not discuss all the application, just the new one and the worst one. 2 mega pixel camera is ok for those people who's taking photo just for fun like me, but not for those who take photograghy seriously. Video is ok, but you can't use the LED flash for lighting your video. Again you can't use The LED as a handy flash light, I don't know why nokia don't add this function its a simply program. It has a quickoffice but only on view mode. Guys if someone know where I can get a software upgrade for quickoffice here in the philippines so I can edit my files. I still using my 6260 for this function Thanks. Lets continue, about the image and video gallery, files only display on grid mode with only small thumbnail, the folder you created has no name you have to wait for a few second for the name to pop up when highlighted. And here's the worst it has a different filling system from the file manager, you have to create a new folders at the gallery, if you change something in the file manager you have to re-do it on the gallery, and you can't create a folder inside a folder at the gallery. I say it's a time waster. Next is the music player. It has a good and quality sound specially by using an earphone. Only mono loudspeaker, for me its ok since you can't enjoy stereo w/ two speker close to each other. It has lots of setting to play with so you can create the sound that suit your personal taste. Here's is the downside, it has an mp3 tag editor so you can change the title, artist, genre, etc. But in reality you don't really change the mp3 tag, Its just temporary, when you try to move the mp3 file to another folder by using file manager it reset all your edited mp3 tags, imagine I have an initial 600 plus of mp3, edited one by one. Now I have to re-do it again. I hate and love nokia hmmm. The voice command is 75% ok. It can recognise command easily compare to the old nokia model. And you don't have to record your voice to recognise by the phone. But it is only usable inside a quiet room or inside a close car. It can find a song by saying the title or artist or genre but again it depend on the noise environment. It has also a voice syntesiser,it can read masseges(only english word,short cuts like "txt k d2"only spell it out) I guess I can call it the talking phone. Active note is an additional application. I think its a useful app you can add picture, sound, etc. on your note and you can organise it in folder. Glitch in the system, I notice, while music player is playing and you open file manager and play an mp3 file or other audio files the phone will re-start it self. Another thing is it always hang up at music player. An old problem on nokia symbian phone. I will continue to find any weakness of this unit. I try to ask nokia care center they disappoint me. Dictionary is a good addition but it has a limited data base even a simple "glitch" word is not available. Useless. Elovoed dictionary is more efficient. Nokia announced that 5320mx can handle 8gig of sd memory. It's running ok but eventually you will notice sluggishness as you fill your memory with files. Now only 35% of my 8gig memory I used and I can already notice slow on the system. And guys I buy this unit b'coz it's a symbian smart phone and I thought all my application (sis & jar files) on my 6260 is compatible to this phone, how ignorant of me. Only some jar files. 3G, internet, email are still on process i try ask help on me Operator.
If your are in the market for this phone and you think all you read here is just fine for you. Then but it by all means, its a nice, solid unit. I got the blue one cool color all my co-employee envy it. Good luck
