well, both handsets are 3g and outstanding in terms of music. to my regret i don't know much about w850i. but some things i do know, if I were to compare;
1. w850i's inbox in-ear headset is greater than that of 5700. but if you will use let's say, sennheiser, bose or altec lansing or whichever 'classy' speaker or headset, sound output from these two will be fulfilling. there's somehow no or minor difference.
2. both handsets' cameras have no auto-focus. i have a friend who uses w850i, too bad i wasn't able to use its' camera. 5700's video recording stands out better since it is QVGA. w850i only has QCIF (ancient, as described in gsm arena's review).
3. 5700 has more phone memory and has a fast cpu. 5700 supports up to 2gb of microSD i don't know about w850i, some say it can support up to 4gb.
now about sdhc (if you heard of it), some think that if a firmware upgrade is done, 5700 can handle more than 2gb. but it remains to be seen and it is yet to be proved.
4. about browsing, 5700 has class 32 gprs while w850i is class 10.
5. both phones support a2dp stereo bluetooth profile (which is good).
6. as for battery, w850i's the winner. stand-by is up to 350h. 5700 lasts up to 290h.
7. about hardware, 5700 is suitable for the rough and rugged. its' twisting mechanism works fine as proved by an earlier nokia release - 3250. my friends'(and i've even heard from some w850i users) w850i has its keypad cracked for some time. but the slider works okay. i've had 6270 (a slider) before i switched to 5700.
so far those are the things i've observed concerning these two. but of course, it will be your choice. mabuhay ka!
hey ash!!!( mi kababayan)
wat's d diff between n5700 and w850i??? i'm planning to buy either 1 of diz but until now i'm still confused...
pls help!! tanx.
to no name,
i agree that n73 is better than 5700. its' edge is just the 3.2mp camera but 5700 has the latest symbian. both phones are great for music, i even considered getting n73ME until 5700 came out. and i made the right choice, i should say.
i bought my 5700 for P18,700 (nokia store robinson's galleria). yes, it has an inbox 512mb. if you're serious in using this for music, i suggest you should have your preferred headset. but the loudspeaker's sound is just loud and fine. in your pocket, you can even feel it's strength without activating the vibration.
i wasn't able to go to youtube.com. but you can go to youtube for mobile. i just can't recall the path.
to andy burgin,
thanks for your suggestion. i'll check that out.
thanks for the suggestions. as for the animated icons, i'm not so sure.
and yeah, with the headset i'm using, you can really call it music! kaka-addik!

Can you install jar and sis application and games downloaded from forums in Nokia 5700 ? if anyone has done pls tell.

btw, ur usin an excellent headset!
ash, can we make menu icons (in grid mode) to be animated like N95? (wyl on menu grid, options > animate icons..) tnx!
Hello ash. I'm from ph too. how much did it cost you on 5700? does it include 512MB memory card in the package?
Hi the person who wants themes an software try www.mobileforums.net there free an look good try the 3rd Edition Software an Nokia series 60 themes there easy to download,but do not download to many onto your mobile because you can not delete them from your mobile
hi people, good day.
is there a software or maybe a website where i can create themes for my 5700?
to kris, the w810i's headset included sounds better than that of 5700's. but talking about these two, 5700 is much better. i'm using a sennheiser hd-555 headset with my 5700 and the sound is undoubtedly terrific. it has good bass response. as for w810i's megabass, it's good but it tends to swamp the overall output of the sound. and between the two, 5700 is the better choice.
take note, no arguing about who's the better one - nokia or se. that's the good thing called variety. take your pick. peace!
mabuhay to all!
it's been five days since i bought this 5700. and with that 5 days, i was fast to learn its' interface and became well-versed in handling it. i tell you, it really is a great buy, considering its power-packed features and its price. it's not expensive nor it is cheap. it's priced just right. its' looks are definitely youthful and hip. the best things i like are its' music player (easy to use and the sound gives justice to songs), web browser (super fast, i even download songs at a rate of 1 song per 2 minutes), video (resolution can't be underestimated) and installing applications.
i'm using a 2gb microSD and right now i have 564 songs stored yet the available memory is still more than half of the total capacity. the sounds of the songs are absolutely ok (using pc suite's music manager).
whenever i flaunt my 5700, i'm the envy of my co-workers. they even tell that they're planning to buy one.
so far no issues, just great music/smartphone experience.
yesterday my mom bought her n73 ME at a nokia store near our place (podium) and i got my 5700 from a dealer and we also met at that same mall... it was actually very random since i was the who was only to buy a mob. but my mom saw n73 and fell in love with it.
here is a hands on comparison,,
music wise, 5700 definitely wins specially if you configure the eq and all that stuff, i used what viperkid preferred during my 3250 eq days...
camera wise, n73 wins,, the clarity specially at night...
5700's camera is way better than the 3250's since maybe because of the 16million color? because i tried comparing them without turning on the flash on my 5700 and the pics are much clearer, precise and crisp than the 3250
music wise, n73 also offers good sounds, 5700 has better but im telling you... no need to argue on whats better because the sounds on both phones rock! very much different from other music phones and is definitely louder than the SE because my brother has this SE walkman phone w830? or 850? i dunno,, that slim type and nokia wins.
anyway,, i love how user friendly the 5700 is and im telling you,, the phone is a must buy, how cheap it is with so much features to offer. and i love n73 too,
