The Nokia 5610 is a awesome phone. After using it for 5 months now i m writing this review. I had a option to buy from 5610, N73 & Sony K810i. After doing a lot of research i decided to go for 5610 because its OS is way faster than N73 & its video quality is better than Sony K810i. I sold my 6270 to buy this one. I am really impressed by its 16M colors screen. The phone's camera quality is amazing & sound quality is top notch. The only thing which annoys me is that the phone is very slippery to hold & is sensitive to fingerprints. I bought it for 12000 Indian rupees with 2GB memory card. The phone really impressed my buddies in college, because most of them use N series handsets they think my phone is faster & more reliable. Now i think i made the right decision by choosing a java phone. But if u want a symbian phone in this price range just go for N73.
Dani, 04 Nov 2008Does it have 3.5mm jack ?Not directly from phone
But u can connect 3.5mm jacks using the head phone cable provided with the phone
The phone is very good, sound quality no doubt... but some problems are
1. the scrollable bar comes out
2. the display is not reliable. at times it shows a complete black screen, or shows an upside down screen. at first i thought i had an infected memory card , but even after multiple formats and complete software update, the display still troubles. :(
Really painful...after paying so much :( and the worst part is it started troubling within 5 months of purchase.The nokia care centre would not take it in the warranty period, they claiming it happened because of physical damage...they want money to repair it...can you imagine as if 13K wasnt enough... duh spare me from those craps..!!! really one dissatisfied customer i am now!
i buy the phone 5 month...in the first day the phone hang when i open music player...i think not problem, but after that...the phone hang again every i listen music when be sms or phone coming, and screen blank, i change the phone the new one and all the same with same trouble i very dissapointed with the phone coz just look beautifull outside but not good inside
i rili wanted 2 buy this phone....bt after reading ol dis comment i dnt think i will spend my money buying dis phone now....wat a bad luck....m rili dissapointed...:-( :-( :-( :-( do something about it NOKIA
i purchased it in month of april at the start it had problems of restart bt i send it to the care centre and now it is working extremely fine.The music quality is extremely good though its output sound is not good but headset sound is grt.Also the battery is good.The camera picture quality is also good.the looks are awesome especially in red colour.
To all who plan to buy 5610(firmware version v8.30)...........
I have been using this phone for the past 1 yr.
*Music quality is good(cant say great)
*Picture/video quality are outstanding when all options set to its maximum.+ autofocus
*Battery life also good, mine stays upto 2 days easily(playing music upto 5 hrs,calls upto 1 hr )
*The phone restarts/stucks while hearing music or during menu operations(May be due to refreshing of the playlist while the phone starts up, and we cant disable this.)
*The slider scratches the keypad.
*The front body plastic is absolutely a finger print magnet
*The music slider key is absolutely a waste, and is very fragile too.If broken ruins the look of the phone
*No cover to the camera lens.
If u want to use the phone for long time, better not to buy this one, or if u are a regular phone changer u can just try this.
I have updated my software to v6.60..it works good.flash got perfect and hanging is totally removed.its a nice phone.everything is awesome.navislide fell off.and the steel thats beside the screen,fell off..so the body is poor and weak
this is a fkin sad phone... its been only 4 months and its display aint workin.. the service ppl changed its display and still it dint work.. then they blame it on us saying it was soaked in water..?!? i don't carry the mobile outta my house!!! i dint know nokia produced such kind of phones and scam ppl.. my faith and trust of nokia is lost.. i ll never purchase another nokia phone in my life
Hello all, just bought this cool phone yesterday and already I have been experiencing problems. First, the phone only shows that the total memory of my (512 MB) m-card is 470 MB. Where is the remaining 42 MB memory gone then? And when I charge my phone for about 5 minutes, its battery gets soooo hot that you can't even touch the phone. Is this normal? And has anyone else been experiencing problems just like mine? And have the BP-5M official Nokia batteries started being recalled worldwide because of this problem? Someone please answer.
