How can you rate that batt as better than SE phones. I have a W800 and I listen to mp3 around 2hrs a day and get at least 5 days out of the battery. Much better than what you describe for the 5500
For all those who are interested in the batt life. Sad to say, compare to my 3250, the 5500 somewhat loses out. I can only squeeze out 2 days of usage at best, with 2 hours of MP3 per day plus some phone usage and I am being very optimistic. My 3250 could squeeze out 10 hrs of MP3 over 3 days. But for those who dun care about MP3 and radio, u can get 3-4 days of usage. But would still rate the batt life as better than the SE phones when it comes to music play.
Another disappointment, although the 5500 seems to have the same player as the 3250, the same cannot be said about the volume. With the same EQ setup on both phones, the 5500 pales in comparison to the 3250 in volume.
These are the only to quips I have with the phone. Everything else, features, build are kick ass. If u can live with the batt and soft volume I would recommend this phone.
Overall Excellent Phone, Battery Could Be Better, Battery Life quite poor, well i charged it for half a day when i first got it...lasts about 2-3 days with normal usage-radio,mp3,games,txting,calls..etc...recommended though! 8/10
If anyone has an idea on the price of this phone in East Africa then please tell me.
And in your opinion, is the grey case better than the black?
bought it coz its small and i want to use smartphones only... this thing rocks!
Got one fantastic phone, better than a n70 and n80, durable and has all series 60 features you would expect and more, listen to your texts read out to you, when phone rings says name you have put in for that person, gps tracking software included(gps needed).etc. small and great, not big and bulky like all nokia lately.
Only downside is internal memory is 11mb not 64mb as stated.
Is the quality of the screen the same as the 6230i (since it has the same resolution) and are pictures taken by the camera seen on the display also compareble to the 6230i
the display is really too small for its category, much the size of Nokia 6230 :(
i'm not buying it for this reason only
Great phone, but I read that it has the Office Suite for viewing MS Office documents and I don't find it. Is this suite really installed or is a problem with my phone?
AWSOME PHONE!!! It surprizes me a lot: compact, good cam, anti-shock parts (when it felt down, it sounded like a potato and everything was in place) , flashlight (I use very often), MP3 player with a superb rate quality / volume and easy to use (turn on/off and changing tracks by gently hiting the phone), the list-making feature, nice sound settings, copy-paste for any user edited text, lots of fields that can be inserted to contacts, voice comand, a beautiful activity log list for 30 days (data, sms, voice, sent and received and details to each), a confortable "jog" (5 way key). And I can personalize the menu to make it more accesible. It's so flexible !! It's a sport oriented phone ; it means that even if it has lots of features, those are so easy and accesible for use! What I'd like to have at this phone is a better communication phone-SIMcard (for contacts and sms); but lately, the storage is made to the memory card, wich is more flexible, easyer to copy and to backup the information. PS: the charger cupling has changed.
It depends what you want to type. If you just want to send a quick SMS its fine but if you're thinking about transcribing a copy of war and peace, think again.
I have a question...I am thinking of getting the Nokia 5500 sport...is it a worthwile phone to get? Are the buttons difficult to type with?
well...actually this isn't a comment,I have a question.my last(late!) mobile's a n-gage.It's my first and last dream mobile AND IT WAS SUCH A DIE-HARD THING!i'VE DECIDED 2 buy 5500,am i right?
2 things about this phone!great phone good price!!!!in addition the memory is awsome!!!!!!!!!
