Im thinking also of changing my 5700 to a n81.but when i c0mpare it side by side,it only has little improvement,n0t w0rthy of much m0re m0ney,and flex can cause pr0blem in future.but i really like n81.i want to change my f0ne,to a candybar f0rm,f0r stability purposes.so my plan A is to have n81,if my budget d0esnt meet,ill ch0ose plan B,to buy a 6120c 2ndhand,and an ip0d shuffle.
Nadim, 05 Nov 2008Dude. However good the N81 is at music, it will NEVER be able to surpass the exceptional audio... moren81 8gb is around 350 dollars now. n81 is even cheaper than n81 8gb. 5800 is not yet out in the market. 5800 costs 279 euros MINUS the tax, shipment cost, and retailer profit. so by the time 5800 gets finally released in retail stores, it will cost at least 350 euros depending on the market. it's not as cheap as you think it is! while n81 8gb is currently trading at 350 DOLLARS (P16,000), 5800 will be trading at at least 350 EUROS (P22,000). 5700 upgrading to n79 is an upgrade for a change. 5700 is a music-oriented phone. n79 is a midrange all-rounder not focusing on anything. n91 is a great phone but it's pointless for a 5700 user to upgrade to a 3-year old phone just for sound quality. n81 has the best sound quality among all nokia phones, second to n91 only. it's even has better sound quality than any of the latest nokia phones around because it has the same hardware audio chip of n91. n81 is a worthy upgrade from 5700 if you're priority is still music. 5800 is also worthy upgrade but it's a lot more expensive. n79 is also worth it but it doesn't focus on music and sound quality. well i guess, n81 is not really for already-5700 users. i would instead suggest the future buyers to choose n81 over 5700 if they're planning to buy a great music phone for the best value!
Nadim, 05 Nov 2008Dude. However good the N81 is at music, it will NEVER be able to surpass the exceptional audio... moreI definitely agree with you, I'm thinking on 5800 to replace my 5700 or maybe an N79, it'll depend on my budget the next year. Every time I replace my phone I want more features and I think N81 is more or less the same package with little improvements, but 5800 and N79 improves a lot compared to N81 so I wouldn't look to N81 to replace my 5700. Good advice

However good the N81 is at music, it will NEVER be able to surpass the exceptional audio quality of the N91. So if a 5700 owner is looking for better AUDIO QUALITY and NOTHING ELSE, its the N91, however outdated it is (its still the best at music).
And if a 5700 owner is looking for BETTER AUDIO QUALITY ALONG WITH UPGRADED OTHER FEATURES, they should obviously go for a NEW one, not an 8-month old N81. The 5800 would cost around the same price as an N81 8GB. So I would rather go for a 3.2" touch-enabled S60 5th Edition, 3.2mpAF cam, GPS with all-round multimedia capabilities, rather than an 8-month old model at about the same price.
They both cost the same, so why not go for a new device? Just expressing my views.
Nadim, 02 Nov 2008Yea.... so? N81 was released more than 6 months later than 5700. Its obvious that its a bette... moren81 is a worthy upgrade from 5700. n91 is great but it's an outdated device already. n85 and n79 are good phones, but n81 is better than them as a music phone! n85 and n79 are not music phones. n81 is an excellent device because it performs its job very well as a great music and gaming phone.
suman, 04 Nov 2008thank u very much Nadim..now i m gonna give it a try..hope everything goes well..Best of luck! Eager to hear how it goes...

No doubt it's an excl'nt phone. One suggestion for those who r facing problem with it's headset ( model AD-44), it contains one 3.7V Lithium cell inside which is replacable. Replace it and your most of the headset related problems will be gone . clue for replacing cell ... open the rear clip first by removing the thin hinge.
curious, 03 Nov 2008im curious.Wich phone sounds louder in speakers?N73 N91 or n5700?N73 very loud.
can it play flash and java files in its web browser?
can it play youtube videos direct in its web browser through flash, as these videos are played in N81 or other n series phones
suman, 03 Nov 2008hi nadim...is it safe to upgrade ur FW via phoenix..i read the post on dotsis and there it say... moreWell, all I can say is that upgrading any phone via the "erase current firmware fully and THEN installing the new one" method over cable is not 100% guaranteed. Because you might be one of those unlucky people who fall victim to a unsuccessfully flashed, DEAD phone.
But I upgraded mine successfully and believe me, its really worth it. The whole process is actually very easy upto the point where it erases the current firmware and starts installing the new one. When the new one is finished installing (shows 60% of the whole process), the phone is supposed to reboot by itself. But in my case, it didnt reboot, and the screen remained blank. This is the point where you think "OH F*CK, MY PHONE'S RUINED". But what you have to do is disconnect the cable and reboot manually.
The thing is that, the phone doesnt reboot on itself after erasing and installing the new firmware. YOUR PHONE'S NOT DEAD coz the new one's already been installed. Just disconnect and restart it manually.
Voila! The phone successfully rebooted and I was in possession of a 5700 with v5.11 (although Phoenix said UPDATE FAILED because i disconnected on 60% of the whole process). No big deal really. And Phoenix CAN flash dead phones. So basically, its not a risk.
Its safe. Anything goes wrong... we're always here to help.
The price d0esnt decrease because this is very rare,right?we cant see many pinoys that have 5700.here in malolos,the price is still 11k brandnew,while the latest 5320xm is 10k brandnew,h0ws that?just find 2ndhand,im selling mine for 6,5k with a 4gb card.just want to upgrade,if no one will buy my f0ne,ill just keep this,because believe me,5700 really rocks!
Get a life,use other names,n0t mine.pathetic

i want this phone SO BAD! but the price here in the philippine does not decrease,but other phone does, why?
