hi, i am using this phone over 2 years. I must say that it is the best smartphone at this price range.
Touch response is still so good ,awesome technology.
Excellent multitasking ability. You can use opera, uc browser, music, etc all at the same time.
Opera symbian version and uc browser is so fast that you don't even need 3g.
Pretty solid hardware. I dropped the phone several times to floor accidently but nothing got damaged.
Battery life is pretty fine.
Amazing large HD display with millions of colours, that no other phone in this price range can match. Tons of HD themes available and wallpapers ahaha awesome display.
Gprs is class 32,the best speed. With the new v51.1.02 update, the browser is super fast. Nokia included smileys also in this update.
S60v5 is one of the most experienced platform. So there are tons of applications. With third party applications, you can view/edit ms office files, pdf etc. So less work for your pc.
I have installed custom software for this phone. PNHT has ported c6 firmware to this phone. Now n97 port is also available. So i have widgetised home screen, n8keyboard,drop down menu like belle,super fast gallery, belle navigation bar etc. If you see a screen shot, u won't believe it is from an s60v5 phone.
The only drawback is the low volume via loud speakers but after installing n97 cfw it is reasonably loud.
The provided head phone is crap .just buy another one even a chinese head phone will do. Awesome bass ,treble. Excellent sound engineering.
So using this for 2years, i will say thanks god ,thanks nokia . A happy user.

prasad, 15 Jul 2012if dis is the good phone,then y people are complaing about youtube videos,memory card,loudspea... moreHi Buddy,
Well you said that people are complaining yes true but 1 out 1000 will have problem. Please show me any opinion about any handset where the people never posted abt the handset's problem every piece of the handset of any company can't be perfect & ya if you look at the opinion you can find most people are appreciating the handset rather then complaining look at the opiniom with open eyes.
If your so interested in other phone than why is it your giving comments on this phone ....
And it might be that you dont like the phone or you don't know how to use this phone, and please let other's use this phone who are very interested in da phone and don't give such kind of nonsense comments...
Karan_kool, 15 Jul 2012Hey buddy, If you think that we are the useless fellow then why posting the comments here... moreif dis is the good phone,then y people are complaing about youtube videos,memory card,loudspeaker etc...though these are working fine on other handsets including nokia...iam not saying symbian is waste but only this handset is waste and useless...
[deleted post]Hey buddy,
If you think that we are the useless fellow then why posting the comments here. If you think you are so usefull then its better you make yourself usefull. You people think that android is very smart well let me make a clarification symbian has been into the business of making OS from the history of smart phone they make OS which are really polished & well crafted where as andoid is very new in making OS that's why they have so much virus problem. Dude sysmbian is made for business & is crafted to perfection for business as well & it looks into the need of the average people & by the ways this handset is atleast 4 years old how much updated do you want this handset to be its performing to its peek so if you dont actually know how to operate the handset then don't balme the people using this handset. Remeber I have been using this handset since the last 3 years I had no problem yet never went for any repairment & ya not to forget with the help of apps my handset is more coller than Android itself!!!
