A small question for u ... I cant play any videos i downloaded from Youtube in my 5530.. even when i drag & drop them to the galery from my pc it says the format is not supported .. then I tried sending the video's straight to the memory card.. I could save them in the memory card but cant play it. Isn't FLV format supported in 5530 ?? is there any way to work around this ?? Thanks
Nuwan, 22 May 2010Dear MONTU,
I'm sorry that nobody has replied for exactly what you've asked... I'll try to ... moreBrother Nuwan,
My goodness,what a long explanation to him.I'm pretty sure he will buy the fone n join us 5530 lovers.
By the way brother,sorry on my last post,I meant to say smart movie and not LCG.Now i know how to convert avi's for the smart movie player.It should not be more than 15fps.
I have some few question here bro,and i hope you can help me.
1.What is the use of Boingo,i found this pre-
installed on my 5530.If it is not usefull,i will
2.Do i need to remove the protective cover of my
camera lens or no need?
3.I got the TTPOD v3.7 from dotsis but the spectrum
analyzer is not showing on the now playing screen
even though i already checked on the setting?Have
youexperienced that?Is there any solution that you
can tell me brother?
Yeah brother i'm experimenting still on this unit,I love it so much and always careful for it.I even bought a strap because whenever i'm holding it,i feel that it may come out or slip from my palm.
Thank you brother for all your help...
MONTU, 20 May 2010Hey, i hv lots of ques abt dis ph...
ìs d muzic quality, speaker quality, camera quali... moreDear MONTU,
I'm sorry that nobody has replied for exactly what you've asked... I'll try to do so in my best.. I think I can do that as I've got both phones right beside me... (However I can't comment on Nokia C6 as I've never even touched that mobile...)
No.. The camera, Music and all other features you've asked are not exactly same in both 5530 and 5800... I'll explain it very briefly...
Music Quality: 5530 is better as it has superb stereo cross talk... However volume of 5800 is little bit louder than 5530.. But quality wise... No doubt.. 5530 wins.
Speaker: 5800 has the louder speakers. But 5530 delivers more quality sound (specially stereo).
Camera: 5800 has the better camera. You can take great photos from 5530 too if you do some research and select the best manual settings. But by default 5800 shots are better.
Screen size & resolution: I don't have to say 5800 has got bigger screen. But colors are totally different. 5800 has some bluish accent while 5530 has some yellowish accent. (I like the latter personally.) Both phones are OK to watch videos. You won't feel much of a difference between the two screen sizes. Instead you'll love the higher no of pixels (i.e. Resolution) of 5530. (It's screen looks much crispier than 5800 screen.)
TV Out: I wonder whether most of the people who buy 5800 use that feature. For an example, I don't. You can use your TV to watch the contents of your mobile. That's simply it. But when you have computer beside you, I just wonder why anybody wants to plug his/her phone to TV. (Yeah.. There are people still want this feature anyway... No offense please...)
Note: TV Out functionality has nothing to do with TV channels...! Some Chinese counterfeits of Nokia phones have that TV receiving feature... But most of Nokia phones don't... (As to me, Nokia has published only One TV mobile so far.. Only one..)
Hanging problems: I don't think there exists a huge difference between 5800 and 5530 as far as we concern about hanging... Previously 5530 was solid than 5800... But with the new firmware, 5800 has developed a lot and now both mobiles are pretty much solid.
Price: I don't think it'll be helpful if I am going to comment about this because I'm from a different country.. (I'm from Sri Lanka...) Actually these days 5800 is considered out dated in Sri Lanka so we can see lots of adds to sell that mobile... On the other hand, 5530 was not sold as 5800 had been... Anyway, the people who bought 5530.. I don't think they've got complaints about it... (Including me...)
We've got 3G and 3.5G in Sri Lanka so it really matters to decide between 5530 and 5800 for those who wants those features in their mobiles... I am OK with 3G but not ok with the cost (!) so I don't really wanted it in my mobile.. So I first went with 5530 and was pretty happy with it... (and still very happy...)
Recently I bought 5800 (second hand) only because someone sold it very cheaply... Now I've begun to like it too...
Personally, I like 5530 rather than 5800.. Because,
First, I'm a Music lover so I want the Perfect sound quality (which is in 5530)...
Second, I don't like the size of 5800... (I feel like carrying a brick in my pocket.. I wish even 5530 was thinner...!)
Third, I can install anything I want in 5530 but not in 5800... (Because 5530 newest firmware is hackable but 5800 is not..)
Fourth, I love the screen colors and resolution of 5530 over 5800..
Fifth, I like the design of 5530... (Full touch, Stainless steel frame etc...)
Sixth, 5800 is older and everybody has it everywhere.. It's always feeling cool to use a unique and fresh phone..
The things I like in 5800 are,
Good battery (Better than 5530)
Currently I'm using 5530 as my primary mobile that I carry everywhere... and 5800 as secondary one only when I want to use 3G for web browsing at home... (In office we've got wifi which is faster than 3G so I can use 5530 anyway...)
Think this will help for everyone who have doubts...

Quite good phone and nice looking . its just that no 3G. i was thinking to buy a perfect phone :)
I have been using this mobile for last 3 months. I am quite happy and satisfied with my Nokia 5530. The camera of 5800 is bad, the pics got greenish touch. But the camera of 5530 is normel. I do not think to get 3G, so I have no tension for 3G.
sagar, music quality of this phone is perfect, not really very loud, but clear, but still, its on the loud side, camera is not that good compared to other units, but, still on the good side, its worth the money,
wht abt the music quality in thisphone guys... & also tel me if any complaints are there against this set. m going to buy this set so askng
montu to start with, you will be safer in 5530, 5800xm had recalls back then and its not just software, its hardware, they just turn off and hang on you, you will be better with 5530 for it is cheaper, at the safe time, no issues, though they restart very seldomly, go with 5530, the only diff between the two, 5530 doesnt support 3g and it has no gps, thats all, and sorry about what happened, i didnt mean to be hyper :D
