To GECKO - The centre button on the D-pad will not launch the music player, nor will it automatically play the last song UNLESS you have the music player open already. Otherwise it functions normally, and will open the menu from standby mode. The 5310 and 5610 SHOULD have the same sound chip so technically should sound the same. I have found the bass to be good, so are you using the standard headset? As has been reported many times, its not of good quality so use another make for much improved sound.
To Crouchz - if you want the full specs for the phone, just go to the Nokia site. As for its functions, why not read the rest of this forum!
As for macro focus, it happens automatically.
To N.M.H. - Technically the 5610 and 6500 slide are based on the same phone, but the 6500 has a metal casing and the 5610 a mostly plastic one. The 5610 is more music orientated so has the slider function to launch the player, the 6500 doesn't. The 6500 has tv out, the 5610 doesn't. The cameras are the same except the 6500 has a better quality lens. They will almost certainly appeal to different people but to ask which is better overall is an impossible question to answer - it's down to personal preference.
And you ask if the music quality really is better than Walkman phones? - Yes! I don't know how to stress this any more, as it's been said many, many times before. But the only way you will find out is to try one.
hey every body i bought this phone and its awesome but i have one quest about the cam :
-the camera is not so good :S how it should be : high normal or basic ???
I'm sure i'm gonna sound really out-of-date, but can somebody explain what these autofocus and mocroshot things are? :s
please all you 5610-owners answer the questioners.
temme if it can support tv-out if we get he 2.5 mm tv-out cable, and also can anyone compare it with the nokia 6500 slide and tell which one is better OVERALL.
1 thing more, most people are sayin the sound quality exceeds that of the Walkman phones, really? is this so? and is the bass enough, more than enough or poor?
I am an ardent fan of Nokia, as a brand. For my employer, I develop application on the S60 platform. I bought this phone recently, found it to be good.
1. Good Camera, with AF. No macroshot capability[its listed as a feature in nokia website].
2. I paid INR 13600, Found it to be good for a phone with a 3.2MP cam n came with a 512MB card.
3. The slider, is basically a fancy toy. Nothing much is there to be done with that, it is used to slide between main screen, radio and music player. Rather than the slider, the sliding interface is appealing.
4. Music player, sound quality etc are awesome [i need not speak much abt it, rt? its an Xpressmusc fone!] But only one speaker. Also, I found the loudspeaker to be not so loud in calls[may be some netwrk trble]
the rest i will write aftr i come back from lunch.
it can support tv out.. but the tv out cable is not include in the 5610 sales package.. u wan it u bought it..
I'm now surving for the nokia 5610, can u give it full specifications, how about it funtions, n if compare for another hp, is it the best model for nokia right now?
I'd like to clarify my earlier post. In the 5310, the dedicated play/pause key at the side will launch the last played track in standby mode. In the 5610, since the center selection key is a play/pause key, does it function the same as 5310 in standby mode? Thanks!
Would appreciate it if someone can help answer this. The center selection key within the D-pad has a play/pause imprint. Does this launch the music player in standby mode? If so, can it be changed to launch the main menu instead? I am absolutely very used to using the center key to launch the menu. Also, I have used the 5310 for about a month before, and i found the sound quality very clear but a bit lacking in bass (compared to my N81), not in the solid booming bass sense, but like rather flat. Can any one comment on the bass quality on the 5610? Thanks!
Question 1 - I've answered this on at least 2 occasions before - it doesn't have a 3.5mm jack in the phone but the adaptor does.
Question 2 - I must have answered this more than 5 times - no you can't!!! There is an excellent 3.2MP camera on the back. Why would you want to use a vga quality front camera to take pictures??
Please guys, lets make this clear once and for all. THE FRONT CAMERA IS JUST FOR VIDEO CALLS!
To gp aravindan - When you say blots, Im assuming you mean interference? I haven't experienced any such thing in my phone. I suggest you exchange yours for another model.

hello everyone.. i just bought this phone. i will b back with a brief review. so keep waiting..
Someone already said this on this forum... but as nobody answered it... i wanna ask that too!
Which one is better: Nokia 6500 slide or 5610?
If you connect the 6500 slide TV-out cable with this phone, does that work?
Hi guys i am using this phone for a month now...
i Find it as a gr8 phone. AUDIO s definitely DAMMMMMMMMMM GOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDD......No other phone can match this phones audio clarity and output.not even sony walkman series.
w910i s the only compititor to this phone in terms of audio.but still 5610 has got the clarity.i can even compare this phone to ipod classics.both sounds the same.
Camera is awesome with 3.2mp.i loved the sound of this phone.
S40 s the new symbian os. it still has some cons in it.
finally my overall rating for this phone s ****stars out of 5.
To Eroosh - you want a direct comparison with the N73? Go to the previous page of this forum as HHH did a huge comparison review giving the pros and cons of each phone!
Yes you can make a call with the slider closed.
To Chats - battery life seems to vary from user to user. I've heard stories of the phone only lasting one day and needing to be charged every day. All I can say is that mine lasts between 3 and 4 days depending on usage. The battery state indicator is not progressive though. Mine stays at 100% for 2 days, then suddenly drops to around 60% and then to around 30%, at which point its best to charge it as there's not a lot left then. It may also depend on how good an initial charge you gave it?
