Well it's not a smart phone so you can't compare it to one. It does absolutely everything I need it to do, and better than the Sony Walkman phones I had before.
It also works perfectly with a Sandisk 4GB card, which only cost £25. Took 15 minutes to copy 3GB of music, which again is faster than Sony.
This one is cheap and small size. Coming N82 expensive and big but better in everything. Hard to choose.
The remote control is long enough to use with the Walkman earpiece, but shorter than the Sony Ericsson equivalent. So where the SE one could be clipped on the collar of your shirt, the Nokia one is a few inches too short to do this (it hands around the upper chest area), but it's still long enough to have the phone in your trouser pocket.
No shops seem to be stocking this phone in England yet, but you can currently get it from Play.com for £199 sim free with free delivery.
Marcus, can you tell me how long is the remote control supplied in the box? i want to know is it really long enough for me if i use the walkman earpiece on the remote. thanks!
I bought this phone 2 days ago, and I can say I am VERY impressed so far.
Comparing it to the Walkman phones that I had before (W810 & W580), the sound quality is every bit as good, but the maximum volume level is higher, which pleased me greatly as I never found the Walkman phones loud enough.
To the people who have said they did not find the sound quality good, have you tried other earphones? The supplied ones are not good quality, so I used the earpiece of my Walkman phone with the Nokia adapter and it sounds great.
Also the camera is good, being autofocus, and considering the flash is only an led, it's surprisingly bright - probably why it cant be used as a torch.
The screen compares very well with the excellent one on the W580. Battery life I can't comment on fairly yet as I've been playing with it so much, so its discharged more quickly than it would do after normal use.
It really is a great music-phone, AND a great camera-phone. With Sony Ericsson you only seem to get one or the other at the moment!
this phone cost u around 1100(a.p)-1499(original set) in Malaysia.
I think its a got deal phone wth 3.2mp and FM radio compared wth S500 only 2mp. BUt some comment tht the sound is not up to standard.but the fact tht if u r looking for sound,go for sony ericsson. but they r too stingy in strategy, came out wth mostly 2mp. the 3.2 recently looks like crap. come on we all want a slide phone
are u tellin abt the loudspeaker or the headfone music volume??
also tell abt the call clarity, messaging easiness, internet features,
could u post a pic taken from the fone?
i bought this phone 3 weeks ago...it really fun 2 use...i love the design n also the interface...the camera is so good and sharp as it has 3.15 mp with autofocus...but i think 1 thing that disappoint me is the sound quality is not as i expected...the key features, arrangement are all good but the sound didn't catch my heart...i'm hoping for a better sound quality from this phone...to be honest, my 6230 has a better sound then 5610...
Please gsmarena your review is eagerly awaited for this phone......
its not yet available in the philippines, according from some stores here in manila, it will be available next week or until first week of december.
"Interface: Series 40 3rd Edition".. look at nokia website, its no way possible to get symbian software on this phone, nether connect with bluetooth GPS, a phone like this with this features without symbian 60 series, very disapointed in my opinion. i thought that was better than my 5700, but without symbian s60, no way i change my multimedia smart phone by this simple phone.
plzzz gsmarena i want to know before buy it its sound as n 73 or not & what about the cam????????????????????
hey the phone is over all awesome but u cant install any softwares n the sound n camera quality is also not good.....................
Hi could u tell me if we can install applications in this fone....
