its a brilliant phone but the only problem is that it only has 18 secs of vidio recordin
just ordered the 5140. And hope it is going to good and up for a bit of abuse. All of you that are moaning about colour and memory should buy a different phone and worry about it breaking or getting wet.
the phone is great, it is pretty much the only choice for the building trade
BTW, if you buy phones for the digital cameras, get yaself a friggin` cam dudes, it will do four times the job of a cellular phone. The phone camera is to share pics or quiclky take some shots of stuff you want to show someone.
Dudes, this phone is for people who like to go camping or who do those activities that a normal phone won't survive. I often go in the mountains and i always have to put my phone in a plastic bag so that the moisture wouldn't affect it, or the rain, i have to wear it around my neck so that it wouldn't bump against anything, and stuff like that. The nokia 5140 is built rough especially for those kinds of things. The screen fits the 4096 colors standards, and it is readable and pleasent to watch, imho. The cam is aiight, good to share some quick photos with friends or to immortalise a nice moment. What upsets me are the buttons on the last row, which tend to resist pressing a little, but the phone is new. Also the covers are a little difficult to take off.
Overall, the phone is okay, the flashlight can light a room pretty good and that's ok when being in a tent or something like that or just want to take a shit in the forrest, the case is sturdy, water protection is good, ringtones are pleasent to hear (good implementation still too little voices), the speaker is handy, radio is okay. The shells are okay also, but they could be a little more polished. I've got one that's made in Hungary, not Finland, so that may be the cause of the less good qual finish.
Buy it if you need it, not to show off. This is for the dickheads who commented about the functions. Yeah, i need a termometer to see just how cold it's outside, i need a flashlight and a compass. Aiight? :) Cheers.
My boyfriend just bought this phone. It is a good phone for him, as he works outdoors, but compared to my Samsung E800 & my old Samsung E700, the camera quality is shite!
HI I have an idea of buying this phone but i wanne know is it good compared to some other phones such as the 6230 and do you think its mdel will change soon>>
GPS feature is not network dependent, only by orbiting satellites under US control.
I'm thinking about buying this phone. GPS option looks great to me. Do you need support of your mobile operater for this option, or it will simply navigate by sattelite signal ?
no u are not normal because u have butter fingers :P only flip phones broke easy if u drop them...
So does this mean I'm not normal? :-)
You forgot to mention people with butter fingers who tend to drop their phones quite frequently. They will also benefit from this unit since it's built tough.
As for the GPS, I think you'd be better off with a separate receiver instead.
normal people don't need a water..resistant phone. Only people who walk around in the nature or are constuktion builder need this phone.. The GPS funktion is great.
PS. good that this kind of phones or build thoug
It looks real cooooool.wanted to have this phone but was not available in the store.
i think better if this 5140 fuly water resistant, shock resistant, dust resistant, and have more aplication for outdoor needed. compare with siemens m65 and ericsson r250s pro ....... good.
when nokia 5140 coming in indonesia... and salary if i buy this phone cell ?
lightbulb head or rather shithead i think you've said all you wanted to say now. everybody knows you were sexually assaulted as a kid and no one blames you for it, no need to take your anger out on other people who don't know what really happened to you. don't worry the bad man who sodomized you day and night during the last 10 years is already in jail. i know a psychiatrist who can help you out with therapy. there there lightbulb head time to take your medicine now....
