i did the latest test with .mp3 playing on 5310, i did few hours long play test, different bitrate test (64, 128, 196), symbols on the .mp3 file name, and any kind of funny combination to make the 5310 crash, and guess what, no problemo. it never crashes. so it only leaves one possible cause: your GSM network interfere with the 5310.
all my friends in Indonesia never experience any problems with the 5310. where are you located?
hey.. did nokia released a new firmware for this unit?! sum1 tell me coz i'll buy 1 after xmas.. pleazahh!!
it is a verry good fone. it is one of the best nokia phones and nokia best company
My nokia 5310 xm is ok now! There's a new update for this phone! it's V. 3.63 RM-303 and my phone does'nt crash anymore! my prob is that the rigning volume is still soft.. it can't be heared in crowded places... ot's only loud in a closed room!
anybody help. i need the overall +points and -points for this cute sleek nokia mobile.
that is regd the camera, battery, music quality, display..etc..
is the volume really low? i thought it was a music phone?...but its handy and cute but the camera is poor!
i saw this mobile few days back..and want to buy it now. i really like its sleek model.
can anybody tell me the +points and -points of this phone 5310.
Yes I too am experiencing the missed call thing, but only when work calls are diverted to mobile, so I thought it may be to do with telco....very interesting to hear others with this problem, though it may still be a coincidence.
The reason some people have the 'music restart' problem and others don't may be due to codec. My fiance bought this phone at same time I did. She had no problem with crashing for weeks whilst mine did. So I put some of my music on hers and same thing began to happen. this indiciates that prolly codecs/bitrate etc triggers the crash, rather than some untis being faulty others not. I'm glad some people have total success with the phone but there's clearly a problem with this model for many people and this makes it A BAD PRODUCT in its current state. A firm like Nokia should know better than to release a bad product. HURRY UP NOKIA OR I'M GOING BACK TO SONY ERICSSON.
Good phone but YES IT HAS MAJOR BUGS WITH FIRMWARE causing reboots and poor music quality (pops and scratches). I'm passionate about music and bought this phone in good faith. Crashing problem can be improved by using Nokia software to convert mp3s to m4a or acc files but this is annoying and phone still crashes sometimes. NOKIA PLEASE HURRY UP AND RELEASE FIRMWARE FIX. DON'T BUY THIS PHONE IF YOU WANT IT FOR MUSIC PLAYBACK UNTIL NOKIA FIXES THE BUGS!!!!!!!!!!
This phone does not support 3G only problem with it is battery life short&ringing volume very low
despite all the "restarting" review that i read here, i still bought the nokia 5310. after 2 months now, i experience not even once the restarting phenomenon that you guys having. i did all kind of test on it, music playing, .mp3 hours of playing (i left it playing while i was sleeping), missed calls with locked and non locked keypad.
i am extremely happy with it. i previously have the nokia 9300i and decided to buy this phone because of the slim and vibrating function. when im not working, i divert all voice calls from 9300i to this slim and small phone. feels like im carrying nothing!
is this phone worth it? yes..
is this phone has low loudspeaker volume? yes
is it really really low? no.
will it be better if the loudspeaker is louder? yes.
is the headphone speaker really good? yes
am i happy with it? yes.
and so should you.
The missed calls bug is also discussed at the nokia forums. Happens with keys locked and in combination with certain sims. Check here:
and PLEASE, submit your complaint too!
it's been a week i am using N5310 ...whenever i get missed calls it gets 'freezed' and
i have never faced the problem of 'rebooting' while playing music (thank god)
but can any one explain ,if its a software bug ,all of us are using the same firmware,
then why some of us are not facing any problem.....some are facing 'reboot' problem
and some (like me) are facing 'missed call' issue????????
plz if anyone have the soln let me know....
this phone is the worst phone i have. i am telling the true. i bought this phone.
i'm gonna sell it soon.
1.It is a music phone right? yup, BUT.. this phonee EVEN had problem playing songs continously. Sometimes it auto-restarted. 1st i thought it was just glitches on codec mp3 which cause the auto-restart. But, even i use Nokia Music Manager, changED all songs to acc format. the problem is still there.
2. The Camera,WOW.. it took more than 10 seconds after pressing capture button. Just imaging how slow it was. Goodness i didn't really use the camera.
OK.. now most of u would as me to send this phone to Nokia Care Centre. But, what can u expect, it is mostly in the firmware. till now 16/12.. there are still no update for it yet. Even at Nokia discussion forum, some peps has change their N5310 by NCC but the problem is there.
i would sincerely ask u buyers to by 5610 rather than this phone. i also wonder how the performance voting can get up to 7.4
Hopefully this has help u...
i wonder why a lot of people like nokia...
when a new model comes out, prices of the previous models drop.. so isn't that kind of waste of money??
and beware.. there are lots of imitations of this model.. i knew someone who bought this phone and said it was brand new.. but it has no box... (stupid, who would believe its brand new, it doesnt have a box..) but it has a manual, headset and charger..
its menu is very different.. and the appearance is very obvious that its a copycat...
tsk tsk tsk...
I think this phone is great... it's slim, looks great and best of all has a great music player built in! If u r looking for a phone i 100% recomend u that u go for the Nokia 5310!!!
In conclusion i really think that u should buy this phone. It does not hav freezing problems, it only freezes lots if u keep dropping it, smashing it and ect... So plz buy this phone,,,, it is worth it all!
