Hey Dani, i think the software of this phone is not that boring. I have seen a hands-on video preview on how the Symbian OS v.9.3 S60 rel. 3.2 feels on YouTube. And for me, it's promising! And hey, the Nokia 5320XM will still come with the Xpress Music headset (HS-45).. But anyway, a lot of net sources have claimed that the 5320XM uses a brand new digital audio chip which they said isn't the same audio chip used with the previous Nokia music phones.
for me, 5320 was a successor for the dull 5310, with cost around euro 220 when it lauch ,thats make sense, even the price could be higher than the 5610, a good musicpone with 3.2 mpix and autofocus facility,but not everyone loves slide/swing type, so, 5320 its worth to buy, just like u buy SE W910
See now thats where NOKIA and SE differ. SE will give a glittery, animated, and over done Media Walkman3 player with average sound, no 3.5mm jack, and weird music keys sometimes NO dedicated music keys like the W910. Whereas NOKIA will give a nice looking media player, with fast menus, brilliant sound, 3.5mm jack and dedicated music keys for their Music phones. With the power efficient S60v3.2 OS9.3 FP2 the 5320xm should give 24hr music with no prob.
Im not gonna diss like you do nick in SE forums, your just daft.
i agree 5320 is good in Features, but my Query is will it really play up to 24 Hours Music and will the Software be NOT Boring..
XpressMusic 2.0 Music Player is really like to simple and abit dull..its just a N95 Music Player with a XpressMusic logo!
and Nokia's XpressMusic Earphones are not that good either, well lets see if they have any good supplys good ones this time.......
Just Gotta wait!!
fact of the matter is...
purely as a music phone, this 5320 is just superior to any "music" phone on the market.
Dani, 08 Jun 2008be warned alll of you in here..
viperkid seriously Hates SE Phones!
just look how he dis... moreNO! Sorry you're wrong dani. Viperkid posted proof of what he's saying, he has proved that the NOKIA is better. You on the other hand have no proof you just talk.
That's a good phone but I am wondering why is has only 2M camera and its screen only 2 inches. Why? Nokia can't solve this problem? I want it has 2.2 inches and 3.2M camera. If possible, it's the best one
be warned alll of you in here..
viperkid seriously Hates SE Phones!
just look how he dissed W980...!
appauling, doesnt mean if you dont like them you dont have to diss...
gees viperkid really doesnt understand.
SE Phones have the VIBEEEEEEEEEEE and they are better then Nokia...
Anoymous, 06 Jun 2008Guys I am considering to buy a phone with a good music playing capability and with a handsome ... morebased on ur needs and plans, i think N78 would be ur best choice. coz it has the best camera wd autofocus and flash, and very good sound quality (in stereo speaker mode and earphone mode [provided dat u plug in a good headset]).
besides, N78 also has d biggest screen amongst em (great for viewing d pics/vids u wil be taking wd its camera). not to mention d intuitive navi-wheel (for easy navigation on ur ever growing music library) plus d ability to search in music library too (a la phonebook) by gradually typing d first letters of d song for faster selection of ur tracks.
wd regards to music playback, both W980 n N78 have d same stamina whilst dis phone, 5320XM got d upper hand by offering a whopping up to 24 hour or 1 day of continuous music! though d latter obviously scores d least wen it comes to camera but still, 5320XM is capable of shooting QVGA videos @ 15fps. take note dat N78 is again d champ here, coz it can produce up to 15fps-VGA resolution videos wd great stereo audio sound. bare in mind dat W980's camera interface is quite ancient, its in portrait mode unlike d nokias mentioned
a few extras, N78 also has WLAN which is good for uploading pics/vids u've created and even utilizes A-GPS in finding ur way to or a place/establishment and also serves an added feature in geotagging ur pics
FM transmitter r both found in W980 n N78 which can be handy if u forgot ur iPod so u can easily beam (over-the-air) though short ranged only into ur car stereo wd style =)
memory department, W980 has an internal 8GB flash based storage which i admit a pretty capacious for a phone but if ur an audiophile, takes lots of pics/vids or love watching movies on d go 8GB aren't really dat big. albeit N78 n 5320XM either r inboxed wd 1 or 2GB microSD cards only, these devices r microSDHC compliant, meaning theoretically, they can handle up to 32GB cards in d very near future. so far d biggest available microSDHC card is 12GB from SanDisk. also, do consider d processor inside of these phones, d nokias got a faster CPU, being 369mhz n 96mb n 128mb SDRAM in the order (meaning faster operation n better multi tasking). so in those departments, N78 n 5320XM wins
back to music, N78 n 5320XM has an in-built 3.5mm audio jack for more convenience in using ur own headsets while W980 still uses d SE proprietary interface in connecting d adapter for u to use a 3.5mm jacked earphones. for dat matter, d nokias gets d positive point again
other music functions, W980 has walkman ID (basically d device gets database info from Gracenote, just lyk wat some music savvy Samsung phones do - relying on audio sound waves) which is a very cool feature, record a short clip of d song send thru their server n let them recognize d song title, artist for u. means less of d guess work of song titles u do not know =) this time, W980 wins
another one by W980, shake control. press walkman key n shake forward, backwards twice to easily go to d next or previous track, while shaking it back n forth will do shuffle mode. although u can do this too (except for shuffle) by using d dedicated keys on d phone (also wd 5320XM) or even wd d remote control from d audio adapter. on d other hand, 5320XM's say n play feature is also a cool feature, press d XpressMusic button n simply name d track title, artist or title n artist of d song n 5320XM will play em for ya immediately =) juz imagine wen u r driving, dis feature wil be very useful. who wins dis part? well it depends on ur preference..
last but not d least, both N78 n 5320XM r symbian OS phones using d flexible S60 UI whilst d SE W980 uses d A200 platform. again, it's ur choice.
but f u ask me, n if i wer in ur shoes n money is not an issue, i'll get N78 without a doubt. in fact, aside from d ones i said, the built-in accelerometer of W980 is d only real edge of dis particular walkman phone wen compared to N78. only IMHO guys.
in d end, its still up to u. answer ur questions.. wat features u rarely use, form factor/design u love, functions dat u think most essential n abiding to u, quality, ergonomics, price wise n other stuff dat would be beneficial n be more appropriate to ur personality in other words use ur good judgment. then if u've got ur checklist done, d last thing i could think of dat u do is.. follow ur heart
hop dis helps =)
(sorry if i got a lil mushy.. geez, i got carried away)
aS far as i'm concerned this is the most Beautiful nokia phone i've ever seen i was hapyy to see that it can withstand an 8gb micro sd but to my diasappointment no wlan 2mp cam. (too weak) no stereo speakers . can't nokia make a perfect mobile phone once ? (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Guys I am considering to buy a phone with a good music playing capability and with a handsome camera. I have considered 3 phones, 1 from SE and 2 from Nokia. Can you guys tell me which one is the best?
1. Sony Ericsson W980
2. Nokia N78
3. Nokia 5320 Express Music
I am waiting for 5320 to come out so its music capacity could be judged with W980. I dont know much about N78 tough. I like W980 but it has a drawback that its camera is placed on an inconvenient location and there is no flash. Could anyone of you help?
wahahah nokia SAY n PLAY...loOL...sooo funny
i was dying with laughter...wooohoohohohoh

weakness master, 30 May 2008the fone have some cons :
- dont have wi-fi
- 2 inch for n-gage gaming is small
- dont ha... moreasking for wlan, gps s kinda silly for a 220 euro (before taxes..) smartphone. besides, i dunno any phone in d said price range dat offers HSDPA wd front cam for video calls, std microUSB n built-in 3.5mm audio jack, decent OS, landscape gaming wd dedicated gaming/music keys, support for microSDHC (dat will hold 32GB cards n d future, i assume), generous 140mb internal storage, 369mhz CPU, 128mb SDRAM, good QVGA MPEG-4 video recording, flashLite 3 n support for YouTube videos natively, say n play voice control to ur music library, SMS reader - reads out ur messages n most importantly, offers up to 24 hours music time
normally, u pay an extra more for d other premium set of features (i.e. wlan, accelerometer, dual speakers, bigger screen, GPU for better, faster graphics rendering/output n VGA 30fps video capture, FM transmitter, DVB-H, xenon flash, better optics, sensor n algorithm for superior photos). whilst a S60 FP2 5320 XpressMusic phone at dat price point is quite a steal, offering very competitive n broad range of features targeted for music n gaming cored lads n gals wd a bonus of S60 OS
though not as functional as gps, u can use nokia maps or even Gmaps in finding a place, ur way etc
dis phone has a single speaker, but im pretty optimistic dat it produces 2 channels even f its only one n i hop dat d sound wil b crisp and loud (good example of which is 3250)
dedicated gaming keys r located on d upper right of d screen (XpressMusic key) wen phone is held normally and d other on its side panel, d rewind key (doubles as either d "b" or "a" gaming button)
on d other note, i hav to agree wd u re d 2" screen. i think its a bit small for gaming. a thing i lyked here is d D-pad is in place instead of a joystick. most imprtntly, its affordable. hooray =) but il surely miss my 3250's twisting base, geez =(
