Precisely. and i wonder how strong this is, will it subjects to wear and tear/loosening after a long time??? i hope not
"i think that with the swivel thing at 90 degrees, one yank and your phone will be broken."
nokia is saying that this phone's memory can be expanded up to 1GB, eventually 3250 will be able to handle microSD cards higher than 1GB (take 6230i for example, remember dat nokia said it can take up to 512mb cards only but i have 6230i with a 1GB MMC and it works 100%!)
i think nokia's main reason of saying that thing is bcoz (i assume) 2GB microSD cards aren't available just yet. a 2GB microSD card is due out this 2006 (i think sandisk mentioned such a capacity already..) and it will be a perfect companion for this model then u'll have a way more room for music files on 3250 than W810 (bcoz W810 does not support eAAC+)
im juz waiting for my paycheck this month, for sure 3250 will be my phone! : ) but i hope by then its out already coz til now it has not been taken its face out here in Manila..
I think that with the swivel thing at 90 degrees, one yank and your phone will be broken.
To Nokia Loyal User:
thankxz for a long self-proved review=)
Really got alot out this, although still want to get this 3250. As for SE phones, I know they are good, but the only thing i didn't like is that they freeeeeeeez! And they are not even smartphones! So, I think I'm done with SE's for now, and buy this Nokia. Always wanted to get a Nokia phone!
Even though I have using Nokia phones since day one (20 over years) and now I'm Mid 40.
Till Today, I am still keep changing but only end up back to Nokia (I also don't know why, even tried so many Se phones and force myself to like them, still go back Nokia).
But surprisingly I bought Sonyercisson K750i for my wife and Sonyericsson Z520i for my 2 daugthers. Why? My wife always put her handphone in her handbag and always can't hear the ringing tones resulting getting scolded by me. From then on, I been hunting for a loud and good camera phone and was happy with the K750i. No phone can't beat the loud tones of K750i so far and the camera quality was one of the best but the video are disappointing.
As for my two young dausghters, they love teh games built-in on the Se Z520i and also clamshell with a display outside.
Comeback to me, I like to buy brand new phone to tried and always ended up selling off within a few days (don't like). My lastest 3G phone is the N70. My regrets came when I sold off my N70 and tried the new Motorola V3x (very disappointing phone, sell off on the 3rd day-no more Motorola phone for me next 10 years) and it came with the new 6280. I thought I should be using this 6280 permanently but it's a boring phone (not many functions except for a good camera & video). Cannot take it anymore, sold off and was happy on the timing the arrival of this 3250.
I bought this 3250 on the first impression it looked solid (black). After a while, actually the phone was quite thick and big. The music was not bad (I think W550i still the best on music) and camera not bad & unique(N70 pictures took are much better). When comes to video, disappointing again, it's only standard 3gp 174x144 resolution (very old small format).
Now, I changed back to N70 even though the phone a bit slower (symbian) but it's really got everything at it's best. A very good 2mp camera and 358X288 Mpeg 4 video, very nice design. So I will stick to this beautiful N70 till the next N80 (3mp camera).
I think N series phone are the premium models of Nokia family, so more or less the functions, features, camera lens, etc. are always better.
Conclusion: My opinion is that Nokia and Sony Ericsson are equally good and very good phone to use. NO MOTOROLA, SIEMENS, ETC.
Dont know if the external flash PD-2 can work on this phone(no mention i can find on the nokia website), but since it can be used on 3230, i suppose it is safe to presume that it can work on this too????
I dont think the sound quality can compare to SE Walkman phones but as long as it is not like what 3230 used to have, i'd be grateful :p. but why must they purposely exclude the light for the camera? because it is a 3 series phone??? :(
Could u please help to give the sources which mention that K750 supports A2DP stereo bluetooth profile??
Also,according to mobile-review.com, 3250 does NOT support A2DP stereo bluetooth profile even though its bluetooth version is 2.0. i was quite taken aback and disappointed, since this is supposed to be one of the latest MUSIC phones.
@viperkid MAN! You're a reviewer I C! and that even w/o proper knowledge! Let's c your judgements:
first W810 also does not support bluetooth stereo like 3250:
WHAT MADE YOU SO SURE? CAN YOU POINT US 2 ANY LINK PROVIDING THE INFO?LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING. FORGET 'BOUT W810 EVEN K750 SUPPORTS BLUETOOTH STEREO. SEARCH IN GOOGLE AND U'LL KNOW..
polyphonic files on SE really sounds better coz SE supports bitrate and sampling frequency on playing .mid files and other synthetic audio formats wyl nokia does not support it resulting into a more plain sounding midi tunes:
WELL YOU'VE SAID IT ALL :-D
on the other hand playing d same mp3 file with d same bitrate on a SE and nokia phone like K750i and 6230 through their respective loudspeakers r really d same in quality and even dat of nokia is a bit louder!:
I THINK YOU REALLY REALLY SHOULD CHECK YOUR EAR BY AN ENT SPECIALIST..I MEAN A k750 AND A 6230! MAN U'RE NUTS.
conversely, previous nokia handsets looses to SE's megabass coz u can obviously hear d bass element more on d inbox earphone than nokia's inbox earphones but the treble element on both of em are quite equal in frequency. but that scenario might not be d norm of nokia phones with xpressMusic logo bcoz as i know 3250 has an enhanced equalizer with bass boost, stereo widening plus reverb effects and a new set of earphone! i just hope nokia made it better (in sound quality) and functionality dan d previous in-box earphones! plus d fact dat 3250 supports eAAC+ and WMA (W810 does not support em) and u can even plug in ur own earphone (if u wish a SONY? y not! then 4 sure u'll have d same bass power found on inbox earphones of walkman phones):
WELL WHAT CAN I SAY, ALL YOU REALLY CAN DO IS HOPE THAT NOKIA WILL FINALLY GIVE YOU A NICE PIECE OF HEAPHONES, AND IF YOU TURN INTO SONY FOR YOUR HEADPHONES WHY NOT GO 4 W810? THEY'RE THE FINES OF SONY'S.
Now lemme judge from my point of view...
as mp3 player:
w810: Already W series showed their outstanding performance so what do I've to say..:)
3250: Till now Nokia haven't showed a good outcome as a mp3 player. Let's c what professional reviewers say.
Moreover with w810 you may go upto 2GB which is straight 1Gb more than 3250. And what's more worthy than Space for a MP3 player?
I don't think i've 2 say nething :-D. There's no NOKIA phone till now which could beat SE phones yet. and w/o auto-focus and flash i don't beleive 3250 is a winner :-D.
Both w810 and 3250 got same charectaristics except w810 got irda. And when ur laptop got only irda and u don't wanna carry ur bluetooth doungle always with you, that helps a gr8 bit.
you certainly don't like Radio with RDS, do you ? :-D
you certainly don't like light weight 99gm(w810) 115(3250).
I just wanna say, if u're a symbian or nokia freak, just go with 3250 or u would like w810. Otherwise NOKIA phones r still incomparable with SE. SE got everything best in the market, afterall the Multimedia equipments are all from Sony, and whom do u expect to beat Sony! NOKIA? :-D
msa, download this clip:
(good qualirty but not so loud)
plz has any one tried this phone I want to know the sound quality of it is it good or not? and the loudness of this phone is it it loud or not plz plz tell me if any one know
it has an amaing 512MB memory card....this phone is the S.H.I.T... it's amazing
N70 or 3250. Do not consider 3G an advantage. My network dosn't support 3G. Does nokia 3250 come lock`ed as 6680,6630...
Does it have memory card in it's original package? if yes, what is the size of it?
help me pls!
Can anyone of u compare this Nokia 3250 to Nikia 6280? I know that Nokia 3250 is better than 6280 as mp3 player but i need to know sth about display (is there visible difference between those two models? Does lower resolution in 3250 make display more dificult to preview pictures?)
If I change stereoheadset in 6280 to stereoheadset 3250, the sound quality could be equal(sound volume/quality)?
let me clear this up to everyone, especially big time hard core SE fanatics, first W810 also does not support bluetooth stereo like 3250 and finally, polyphonic files on SE really sounds better coz SE supports bitrate and sampling frequency on playing .mid files and other synthetic audio formats wyl nokia does not support it resulting into a more plain sounding midi tunes, on the other hand playing d same mp3 file with d same bitrate on a SE and nokia phone like K750i and 6230 through their respective loudspeakers r really d same in quality and even dat of nokia is a bit louder! conversely, previous nokia handsets looses to SE's megabass coz u can obviously hear d bass element more on d inbox earphone than nokia's inbox earphones but the treble element on both of em are quite equal in frequency. but that scenario might not be d norm of nokia phones with xpressMusic logo bcoz as i know 3250 has an enhanced equalizer with bass boost, stereo widening plus reverb effects and a new set of earphone! i just hope nokia made it better (in sound quality) and functionality dan d previous in-box earphones! plus d fact dat 3250 supports eAAC+ and WMA (W810 does not support em) and u can even plug in ur own earphone (if u wish a SONY? y not! then 4 sure u'll have d same bass power found on inbox earphones of walkman phones) and that clever twisting keypad, i just love it! GO 3250!
Is this phon had better sound than w800 at least equal, in multimedia setting is there any loudness,3d widening,eq set?? or can it at least equal the legendary 3300 awesome sound?? pls give review
Nice Design, Nice Camera, Nice Music...
No need to say anymore, best phone so far...
In S'pore, 3G not popular and not many people carried 3G phone so not so useful...
cruz..i care about the software, and video camera...but i know SE has the best sound quality( that's a fact).. but Nk 3250 has good speakers..but the video sux in the w810
