I'm tempted to buy this phone, but for Ģ280
or Ģ250 on ebay with no warranty :/ + amount of bugs found so far.
I dont know what to do now
Hey NewGuy... you've had your 6710 for some time I believe. Do update us of problems if any!
Mary, 10 Oct 2009@ Jai Great I have access to the user opinions again, the whole yesterday it was dead... ?!
... moreThank god the 6710 doesn't die atleast, though I thought I read 1-2 users complaining about that on the other board. But doesn't seem as widespread as the E52 atleast, or is it bcoz there are not enough 6710 users yet? The zoom bar could be a software problem, but as far as I see it, it's a problem one can live with.
I too am not keen on the 5800, but the thing is it is officially available and supported by Nokia Care. If I go for a grey market 6710, I am not sure of support and spares if it develops a problem.
BTW one grey market source is quoting about Rs.15,000 (approx USD 320) but has still not confirmed when it will be available. So biding my time and keeping my fingers crossed :)

I read through the German forum just before:
- No user has written about death of 6710 (that happened only to E52 like you said before).
- Nearly all users mentioned the zoom bar which develops sometimes its own life and zoomes around...
- 1 user (only 1, not more) wrote about the battery going down from 7 bars to none within a day. But perhaps he installed some programs which could have caused this. He will observe the issue and tell.
If I were you, I wouldnīt take the 5800.... 6710 has much better features, except the touchscreen (I donīt like touchscreens anyway).
Think a new FW will come out soon, and it should solve the issue with the lively zoom bar, and also with the battery (if the battery is really an issue, as only 1 person has complained about till now).
Will buy 6710. In Germany, the price is fallen under 300 Euros. I wait one or two more weeks. Perhaps we have then more user opinions to read....

@Mary - So the problems are pretty widespread huh..i have an option between this n the 5800 touch. The touch is a good phone but not without its share of problems about corrupt memory n in my view touch screens are delicate so long life is a ? So hav my eyes set on 6710 but it seems we hav not got enough user reports yet and there could be hidden problems. One thing.. on the german forum you mention are there reports of 6710s going dead? This is one problem which the E52 users are reporting en masse which has scared me off that model as well. sigh.. selecting a phone is so complex!
Jai, 09 Oct 2009@Mary, NewGuy - Came across this forum:

About this issue I read at Nokia support discussions more times already. I think this problem is due to software...
And the battery seems to cause problems - one person wrote about charging every evening.
And in your link we could read about a faulty battery indicator like you have it at N86 (battery shows the wrong status).
Hmmm, it seems there are some software problems nowadays... Think itīs better to wait with buying until new FW comes out and we can hear some voices in forums if these issues are cleared...
The waiting has one advantage, too: in the meantime price will lower - thatīs better for my purse... :)

I saw pictures on the net shot with 6720 (seems to have the same camera as 6710) and the quality is great - like you said fewer blurryness und more sharpness and better handling with low light than N79. Despite having smaller LEDs.
@Mary, NewGuy - Came across this forum:
Several users mention facing different problems with their 6710s. How widespread is this? Anybody on this forum facing similar problems? I just wonder, can't Nokia launch a single new phone without problems??

Did a test last night, using them as a 'torch' by turning them on as video light and the N79s are also brighter (I'm guessing the N85s would be as well) though not by much. The thing is though, for whatever reason, the 6710 just seems to process images better than the N79. They seem to have different sensors, optics or maybe the image processing software? I don't know but even with the advantage of the slightly brighter LEDs the 6710s low light performance is more than a match for the N79, and if you take a photo of someone close to you with the N79 the person is slightly overexposed which doesn't happen with the 6710.

Are the dual leds of 6710 as powerful as these of N79? Somehow they look smaller...?!
The black 6710 loooks really great, but I have seen the titanium/silver in reality, and this colour is fine, too. The backside is grey.

I think nokia is not promoting the 6710 aggressively bcoz they know it will give some serious competition to the N & E series phones at a lower price. Can u believe it i want to buy this so bad but they dont sell it yet in india!!
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2009Really? Thanks for your answer, then I go for the Navigator... First I thought N79īs camera... moreI weighed up getting either the N85 or the N79 for the "N-series" multimedia pedigree, but when you pitted against the 6710, they were either too expensive (N85) or nowhere near as good (both N85 and N79), and certainly the imaging prowess the 6710 is head and shoulders above those two N-series devices. I can live without an FM transmitter, the dual slider form or VGA recording at 30fps. Other factors, the audio quality is great (used a common set of Logitech earphones with my iPod and the 6710 and I was impressed). The screen is legible in direct sunlight (same can't be said for the N79), the speaker might not be stereo but it's reasonably loud and crisp.
