RBa, 09 Dec 2008Oh btw before I forget...the camera on this phone is not so good too. And so does the video,..... moreFYI, firmware version 5.20 is now available at Nokia. I don't know any details as I don't own a 5220...
It's quite handy. Due to it's sleekness, easy to put in pockets and shirts. Good sound. Low picture quality. Sometimes restarts by itself while making calls. . . Anyway it's quite good but not the best
Oh btw before I forget...the camera on this phone is not so good too. And so does the video,..
By the way, is firmware version 4.86 really good? I mean, is it stable?
I am having the v.4.00 on my phone as the factory firmware and I haven't really got any problems whatsoever because it's too stable and fast! It never restarted (not even once). And also, I have never experienced lags, hold ups and slow downs so far on this phone with v.4.00 firmware.
I have a 4GB Micro SD card inserted on this phone with 2.5GB used and GOD, it's still freakin' fast ! In the gallery, it opens my memory card files in an instant and even I myself was greatly surprised as it was almost impossible to expect the phone to open those files this fast. Sounds impossible but true.
So.. Is v.4.86 stable?
Hello guys! I am now starting to love this phone. I have just realized that its sound quality is superb!! Moreover, the volume is very high through my Sennheiser headset. In fact, it's almost impossible to use the volume 10 as volume 7-8 is already loud enough through headset.
Three things that's really not so good on this phone:
1. Display - Viewing angle is not that wide.
2. Volume through loudspeakers - Not so loud and it's quality is not so good but will still do the job.
3. Battery - In my case, it used to last NOT MORE THAN 1 day. (P.S. Is it only me suffering from poor battery? Or is it normal for this model? And also, is it because my 5220 is still new?)
Otherwise, this phone is nice as a music phone.
well i bought this phone n da only thing i wud complain abt is its sound. it is gud by not that loud. n no u cant hear it from another room
Is the new software 4.86 good? Does it fix restarting and the white screen of death? If not i'll just wait for another software that can fix all 4.00 problems! >.
Hi, I bought this phone few days ago. I really like the quality of its image and sound. Its very easy to use and the features are very applicable to me.
It is a good phone for you if you are a jerk. It is having a very annoying problem of hang which is very offen. I will suggest you to change your mind and think of any other nokia phone.
bhex, 06 Dec 2008how is the sound.. is it relatively loud as in can u hear it if you're in another room or like... moreThe Sound is Crystal-clear(the clearest i've ever heard from nokia) and it's loud enough to be heard 10 m away from the phone.
Lucky, 06 Dec 2008from where you bought new battery ...
i m also havin same problem...
adn can u advice me .... moreHey Lucky
I went down to store where i bought my fone and i complained about my poor battery life and i yelled at them...!
The Manager of the Store brought a new fone (5220) he opened up the package and gave me the battery, i gave him the faulty one.(The phone is still in warranty).
Regarding the Earphones here's my E-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org contact me and i will recommend some models.
Hi there,I bought this phone a week back I liked this phone coz it supports a 3.5mm audio jack which is very convinient for me,I alsom like the music lights.I also have the problem of restarting but m gonna upgrade the firmware of the phone,the cam is good hope it had a flash.For people wit earphone sound quality use sony ericsson ear phones sounds great.I bought this phone in India (Goa)overall i like this phone its an awesome muzik phone.
I had this phone since last night my Aunt gave this phone. And you know what, to be frank, I didn't like the design. But anyway, who am I to complain knowing that my Aunt just gave it to me for free.
And actually, the design is not only my gripe. My another complain is the display. The display on this phone seriously won't make you happy (in fact I was disappointed by the display) as the viewing angle of the display is mediocre. And honestly speaking, I found the display of my previous phone, the Nokia 3110c to be better both in brightness and viewing angles but of course, not in resolution as the 5220 has a QVGA resolution. Still, the major letdown is the viewing angle and it is, in my opinion, something serious that will most likely get into your nerves especially if you are in for a model with nice display.
But anyway, the part where this phone rocks is, without doubt, its music department. The music produced is really rich and bassy!! Hope I will love this phone sooner than later despite of its rather disappointing display.
But good thing is that, I'm just using this as my secondary phone because my primary phone is the Nokia N82.
The best phone that i have used in my life.
Easy to use, perfect pictures and extremely brilliant music. I recommend this phone to any person in the world.
how is the sound.. is it relatively loud as in can u hear it if you're in another room or like 10m away?
Jimmy, 05 Dec 2008Hey GuyZ i've just bought this fone 4 days ago....this fone is AWESOME...Crystal Clear Sound,U... morefrom where you bought new battery ...

adn can u advice me ..wch head fone is good wid it..
this phone actually supports qcif video @ 25 fps using h.246 codec the only catch is use amr codec for sound. if you use mp4/aac audio for videos the sound is messed up.
is it possible that a virus enter or effect s40 mobiles? pls answer. Thanks! =)
