The review was excellent. But the flight mode is present in the profiles menu. I realy wonder how your reviewer missed it. To be honest, a very nice phone with an affordable price tag.

I compared the audio test readings of this phone with some readings available on internet for latest PC motherboards with HD audio and this beats most them...This phn is amazing. For someone whos been lagging behind most other brands in terms of audio quality, Nokia has come up with a miracle product.

Everything sounds fine....But how does the battery compare to that of 6300?

Guys, hows the speed of the Processor? good enough or does it take much time? Example: time taken to open the folder and files in the Gallery.

> In reply to Shekhar @ 2009-05-10 03:24 from ji{R - click to read//Themes are available in fact there are hundreds of thousands of themes available for free download for the S40 Platform
Read this: S40 themes are the easiest themes to make by yourself just download any theme rename its extension from .nth to .zip decompress it, edit the pictures and screensaver as you wish if you know more you can edit the .xml (Theme configuration file) compress it again rename the extension to .nth and there you go, your theme is ready to sparkle.//

- Great phone by the way, best audio quality, you can never get this kind of quality in any other phone + 3.5 mm headset + USB mass storage what else can you ask in a phone.

- All cameras in phones have CMOS sensor so the quality will look like shi* whatever your phone is and whatever the resolution is, so if you want a good photo quality get a real camera with CCD sensors for the best image quality.

- The battery backup is pretty good unlike what i've read and after update there will be Flight Mode.

*Get the phone fast!!

And is set to full brightness by default so if you extensively the battery drains in half days. . . . . The preset themes are dark and are not visible in sunlight . Themes are not available for s40 phones via third parties. . . So there it is.
