NewKid - I haven't tried an MP4 so not sure about that. It has no problem playing 3gp files. The stats say its capable of playing the following:
"3GPP (H.263), H.264/AVC, MPEG-4"
The phone can't open xls etc documents because it doesn't have a document viewer, and you can't install one as it's not a smart-phone.
i transferred one of my mp4 file and whenever it plays its just audio with no video. has anyone got an answer for my problem?
Can i open MS document files, .doc .xls .ppt and pdf files whit that phone? Or i need aditional software like mobil office, i want only open not modify.
yeahhhhh..this phone is so cool....
its so thin and has 22 hrs playback...yeahhhh...i like it!!!...
Hey ppl jus got dis fone 2 days bak....
all in alll a gud fone i wud giv a ratin of 8on 10
No joke i got the cell that is deffenly a 3.2 meg camra its super high quality photos
I have a question.
Does anybody read these forum posts? All people seem to do is ask questions which have been answered time and time again!
Yes, in my opinion (given on this very page!) the 5610 is better than the W580i. The music player us just as good, the screen is just as good but the camera is much better, having autofocus and flash.
No the flash can't be used as a light, because Nokia have managed to make it much brighter than is normal for led's, so it can't stay on for long periods.
Yes the speaker is loud, but it is not stereo.
Yes the slider has a very positive feel.
one more thing can this phone downoad themes, games and anythin else. how much can u customise it?
i meant 6121 classic. which is better between this phone and the 6121 claccic and in what ways
i sold my se p1 and got 5610 . cooooooooooooool
phone , nokia is the best
does it have stereo speakers, can the flash be used as a light also, if better than the 6221 classic. how much better and in what way. if the 6221 classic is better, in what way also and how. please help me decide on which phone to buy. i've narrowed it down to these two. thanx
the sliding system on this phone is good? and the speaker for calls ring is loud or low? thanks.
You can't compare the 5610 and the SE K790i because one is predominantly a music phone, and the other is predominantly a camera phone. You can't say which is better - you can only say which is better FOR YOU, and this would depend on what priorities you have in a phone.
Vasant - I have heard of some people saying the battery only lasts one day. Mine however lasts 3-4 days under normal use. I'm using a 4GB Sandisk memory card which works perfectly. It won't work without the back cover on though, for some strange reason.
Apache - I agree with most of your pros and cons. I'm also comparing it to the W810 as it was one of my last phones. It had a much smaller screen of course, but did have the dedicated play/pause button. The Nokia has another advantage though, which some may not have realised - in flight mode you can access all the other functions including photos, games etc whereas on the W810 you can only access music - important if you fly a lot, which I do. They improved this on the W580, but that phone doesn't have autofocus or flash.
The lack of 3.5mm jack is simply because of the extra link needed for the remote control button - you will see that the plug has 4 connectors, not 3, but you can of course plug any headphones into the adaptor part. Sony make a headset with a very short lead, and an extension lead too, making it ideal for use with remote control adaptors - I bought one of these yesterday for £17.99 on Amazon.com.
I actually prefer the power button on the "end" key - recent Sony offerings on the top of the phone have been VERY fiddly to operate - especially on the W580i.
Oh, and there are 2 other ways to lock the keypad, other than using the "goto" button. There's the tradition way of "menu" then "*", and also when you shut the slider, for around 5 seconds the centre button says "lock", and then changes back to "menu" after that time.
I loved my W810 but the lack of flight mode functions was annoying for me, and of course it was getting on a bit. The W580 was not a good replacement since it had a much poorer camera. The 5610 seemed to have everything I wanted in a phone. Yes I can find some faults with it, but then the perfect phone doesn't exist - indeed it CAN'T exist, since we all have different preferences.
I heard there is problem battery in 5610....n salesboy in shopee told me tat it gives problem of detecting extended memory card(memory card not detected)....hav anyone faced such problems?
i am using this 5610 fr over a week i think this phone is amazing with great features,once u buy it will enjoy too...so go for it ....
I just bought a 5610. well, n here r my initial impressions, if it could help any one of u.
Pros: Nice looking phone, same form factor as a W810i, a bit slimmer though.
Nice light in the music slider n around the navi d-pad.
Slide Mechanism smooth, but of course requires some effort to slide open.
Very good keypad, glossy n comfy. pleasure to type.
Active stand-by shortcut bar.
Very intuitive n cool music slider under the screen. u can toggle between the music player, home screen the radio.
Excellent Sound. Dedicated sound chip. i must confess its overall better than walkman series, with a gud headphone though.
Natural looking photos with the 3.2mp cam.
flash n autofocus.
Videos in VGA res at 15 fps. better than most phones.
Opera Mini n Yahoo Go!.
Can use as a Removable disk when connected to a PC. in other words, data storage.
Using the phone for sometime in closed slider postion makes ur wrist n thumb ache. at least for me, bcus i also owned a W810i which had its navi d-pad in the centre. 5610 navi d-pad is below, so its better to slide it open n use if u use it for a long time.
Very hard navi d-pad keys, certainly not fun to play around, requires quite an effort. i long for a joystick.
rest of the keys on the face are equally hard to press, making a clicking noise.
Camera shutter key not so good. too small n does not provide a proper feedback for autofocus.
Pathetic vlome rocker. tiny steel like keys, pain in he neck to press, unlike the projected volume keys of W810i.
Speakers not as powerful as N73ME.
Active- standby bar n go-to key could've been replaced by the very practical Shortcurt/Application Switcher key in Sony phones, because u can toggling between applications from anywhere is a breeze n u can return to ur application as u had left it. n it also acts as a shortcut key.
The music slider opens the music player in a jiffy but it'll return back to the home screen, exiting ur ongoing application.
I terribly miss the play/pause button frm the W810i with which u can play n pause frm literally anywhere, any app, any game.
While watching videos, if not paused or stopped will make it run in the background, with the volume on.
The phone is not lightning fast.
Photos just a bit dull , but natural.
User interface cannot compete with the overall Walkman series interface, which looked into every detail ever so beautifully.
No 3.5mm jack.
Headphones not the best. i am using my walkman headphones attached to the 2.5mm adapter.
Radio gets switched on in the background n pressing the power/end call button for 3 seconds switches it off.
No separate power button, Sony phones just have single press power button, unlike nokias which we have to keep it pressed for ages to switch it on n off.
No proper Luck key. lock key is provided as a shortcut in the Go-to section.
well, more on it later. i am not crooning or complaining, but on the whole, its a pretty gud phone, just runs short of being the most practical n user friendly phone. Good for a change.
wish me luck!
Well I've read one or two reports about users finding their phones shutting themselves down, but mine hasn't done this at all, and I've had it 2 and a half weeks now. Its only done one unusual thing - one day it refused to play any mp3 track, so I turned it off and on again and that cured it, so no idea what that was all about. Apart from that, its worked perfectly.
To make a video call, select the person you want to call and then press and hold the green "call" key.
