well the phone looks n sounds excellent. but does have its cons. the phone moves into default mode frequently. the ringtones set for each profiles gets changed without notice. also i am not able to install any themes from PC Suite. Pls tell me if anyone has the same problem and advice. havein purchased this just bcoz of my opinion, i have lost confidence in me. my previous purchase was 5500 sport which too dint survive for 6months.
Thanks Marcus for the detailed info.

Good review and have the pictures taken from the mobile.. just amaizing... check it out...
To answer some questions recently asked:
As has been said many, MANY times on this forum already, you can't use the front camera for anything other than video calling! I'm really not sure why you would want to anyway, with such a good camera on the other side??
Mine picks up the memory card every time with no problems, and Im using the maximum quoted 4GB. It wont read the card with the back cover off though. I know previous Nokia's have had compatibility problems, so maybe try a different make card. I'm using Sandisk.
Yes it does show fingerprints easily, and I dare say the 6500 Slide is better in this aspect as its made from different materials. However, I'm fairly sure that the 6500 doesn't have the dedicated music chip that the 5610 has. So, just clean it with a cloth regularly!
The slider can be used to answer and end calls, or not depending on how you've set it up. Go to "settings", "call settings", "slide call handling".
just wntd to chek,if i dial a no using the keypad and thn slide the ph back down, the call gets discnncted.any way of preventing this. thanks
will get back about batt perf later as just bought this ph.
ny 1 knows how to use da front camera other than vedio caling? also i am not happy with da batt performance
its leave very messy finger prints on the key pad and navigation keys...dont u all think so?looks good when branded new...looks untidy when used up...6500 slide is much better..6500 looks tidy...no scracthes and finger prints...hehe...what a phone...
Only got mine today. Sometimes it will pick up the memory card but other times it won't. Can Any1 HELP PLS
Thanks Marcus for your answer about softkeys/lights near slider button lighting up in stand-by.
what shall i buy the 6500 slide or the blue 5610 ??? im very confused..the only thing that i can see wrong in the 6500 is that it does not have any protection to the tft
For those who are looking for some decent review on this mobile, check out the site:
I have just received my 5610 today after selling my 6500 slide cause that kept resetting to default settings & was driving me mad. I will be back with a comment in the next few days. At mo i am giving the battery a good charge for the first time.
To "cc" - we would need to know your location before we can realistically compare prices.
The camera lens is not protected. This is one of my criticisms, as the back cover could have a plastic screen over the lens so that you could just replace the back cover only if it got scratched. However, the back cover just has a hole where the camera lens is, leaving it exposed. Mine isn't scratched at all, but then I've only had the phone around 4 weeks.
thanks for ur openion... is the camera cover is prone to scratches....or the cover is sratch proof/resistance
Well Im not using a chrystal cover so I can't comment on that.
Yes, the top row of buttons are very close to the bottom of the top part of the slider, its true. However, it doesn't restrict access to the 1 2 and 3 buttons any more than any other slider phone I've tried. I can still text just as fast as I can on a more traditional "candy bar" phone. The buttons are also very nice to use, being well weighted and spaced. Much better than my old SE W580i where the buttons were not only smaller, they also cracked after 2 months!
someone has asked about the gap between the keypad and upper part of slide, and its still unanswered...
if we use the crystal cover then can we text the message with ease especially the keys for 1, 2, 3... coz the gap between the upper part and the keys is very less....
waiting for ur opinion...
i totally agree with neil, 5610's the right phone for exactly the reasons u mentioned. A very close competitor in the price range is the E51 which is very good looking and packed with features being a buss ph. downside is e51 camera which is a 2mp. Sound quality is AMazing on the 5610...if u want a good+cool ph, this is it!
Its such a sexy mobile i love this mobile than my girlfriend its such a toooooooo sexy.
