wtf is wrong with nokia! picture this:
great phone with dedicated audio chip, great sound, 2 inch 16 million color display, 3.5 mm sound jack yet it cannot play hi-res video...who's bright idea was that. the CEO of Nokia woke up one day thinking, I'll build the perfect 6233 descendent and give it the video playback capabilities of the good old 6230 :((
it's like building a Ferrari and suddenly realize that it will go faster if you put a Fiat motor on it
Nokia, unbefu*kinglievable, wake up!
5310XM, thank you a lot for these answers...I'm not planning on buying this phone for another month or two since it isn't fully launched in my country...please keep us in touch with how this problem evolves in the near future, right now this is a major disadvantage for me...I woas hoping at least 320x240 and 30 fps...just like 6500 slide..if this doesn't wor out i'm going to buy the w910 or w890 or maybe the Slide :(
again thanks and keep us posted ;)
-yes, just like other cam phones, it can take pictures in landscape or portrait mode.
-no it can only play QCIF(176x144) videos in mp4 or 3gp formats.
it can't play QVGA or higher resolution videos.. i tried converting QVGA in 15fps, but only the sounds will play, but when i tried them on my friends 6280 & 6233 they just play smoothly.
i hope nokia should improve this in the next firmware. =)
Would somebody please answer a few questions (only if u are a user! I need personal opinions...): - does it shoot pictures horizontally like a normal camera?
- does it play video clips at 320X240 minimum at 15 fps (30 would be ideal)?
Thank you for taking the time... If those two things are passed I gonna get myself one'o'those :D
i had this phone for about 3 days now, some people say here that the volume is too low.. but believe me, its loud enough despite its thinness.. maybe those people who are saying so are actually who dont really have this phone.
my Pros & Cons so far are:
-amazing sound quality from earphones & loud!
-solid built & very good materials used.
-slim & very light
-very good battery life
-speakers are loud despite its thinness(but 6233's still loud!)
-nice music player & external music buttons.
-it cannot play QVGA/CIF/VGA clips even in 15 or 12 fps, instead you can just hear the sounds.
-below average camera & no flash
-records video in QCIF(176x144)
-though the screen has vivid colors, but its not as bright as Noka 6300.
every thing is good. camera is not like sony ericsson.its not like even other nokia phones.
Finaly!!!!!realy good phone from Nokia. I try many Nokia phone after old 8210 but without success but i just recived 5310 and its impresing me!! Now i'am very hapy:)
Simply and small phone without many stupid keys!
Brill phone, very thin and lite. 100 times better than Sony W880i. Good sound, battery life, and all round impressive phone.
Camera not so good, but if u want good pictures buy a proper digi cam!
this is a very nice phone..
this is porbably any music lovers choice for mobile phones
it has good sound quality
18 hours of playtime
and has a capacity of 4 gb
the camera is good
but not of the best quality
iy lacks autofocus and no flash..
but still cool
their is one thing included in the box but dont know what its for,pls explain. their is a CD, usb cable and charger but their is extra thing no idea whats the name or its use and cant seem to find it in the guide book since its doesnt even show pictures of it.
otherwise the phone is superb nice sound ,i just love it
the price her in thailand is only 9,460 baht. anybody knows the price gonna drop soon? how's the sound? is it like a built in whooper?
its gud............ quite cool as its suite light in weight...............
im in to get a new phone, and im so very confused.I prefer sticking to nokia as I find them very easy to handle.I want a gud camera facility and also somethin stylish. is 5310 worth it or do i have a better choice? do help me out....
I really love this phone... its small design that fits in your pocket, the earphone inlet that fits to standard hi fi earphones, so you can use other headset brands according to your preference ang taste.The crystal clear sounds specially when you use the headphones. Last is the long playback time for music..
