- 35 MB of user memory
- 64 MB SDRAM, 128 MB ROM
- ARM 11, 369 MHz CPU
Has anyone found out the true processor speed of this phone. Its sure its neither 187mhz nor 192mhz. Also the softwares which are showning the speed is of the other processor, since it has 2 processors.
nope, not at all, its kinda vice versa. remember dat as time passes by, S60 phones wil b faster (juz like PCs) bcoz of better hardware (i.e. faster processors from 229mhz to 369mhz, bigger RAM, more optimized OS) and soon on most S60 phones, demand paging which helps alot in d d overall performance of d phone. also, consider all d reviews of 5700, all of em stated dat 5700 is one of d fastest symbian phone to date (some of em even said its faster than N95 in some cases) and some of d reviews mentioned dat d speed is almost d same as non symbian OS phones..
back to SDHC (uses FAT32), since dis is d new specification created by d SD association founded by Panasonic, SanDisk and Toshiba to address d ever increasing requirement of mobile storage, dey didn't juz stretched d capacity limit to more than 2GB (officially) but hav also pumped up both write and read speeds of data. meaning, SDHC cards are generally better in performance than normal sd cards and since it uses FAT32, even u hav maxed out d memory, it will stil b alot faster than normal SD cards
The new firmware is out in Nokia India site. Please review the firmware for us. Do it really bring any changes.
@ viperkid, well if it supports SDHC, i think it'll go slow as another typical symbian phone.
thanx,viper kid for ur info.really helped me a lot.now my confusions r gone.thanx again,bro.
ok, here's d official specs from nokia
it written therein dat 5700 supports up to 4GB microSD cards. in d other side, if u ask me, im pretty sure dat 5700 is or wil b compatible (by firmware update) with 8GB microSD cards. u see, 4GB cards r typically made with d new SD specification called microSDHC, so once a device supports such flash memory type, it means d phone is compatible theoretically up to 32GB cards (in case of full sized SD cards), 16GB miniSDHC and 8GB microSDHC respectively, which all utilizes d FAT file system.
i think the w960i is still better than this...,but best phone is the n95 8gb...full featured phone..
I think i m gonna buy 5700.but im really confused.sandisk website says its compatible upto 4 gb while the kingston website says its compatible upto 2gb.wats the real fact?
oops.. sorry, my bad. i thought Nokia 6120c can only handle up to 2GB, i think i've just taken d word from a forum.nokia page and (if my memory serves me correct) allaboutsymbian saying dat it can only handle max 2GB only.
tnx for d heads up!
oh yeah, Nokia N81 (microSD version) seem to have better features than 5700 at a slightly higher price (when 5700 was released initially..). though u hav to compromise d twist form to d slide factor (i.e. if u prefer d cool twist design) but at least, N81 has a built-in 3.5mm audio jack and better audio quality on both loudspeakers and plugged headsets (not d inbox) with 10 band equalizer, not to mention its dedicated gaming buttons plus d a la iPod stuff - Navi Key =)
errm..i really love this fantastic phone,but i just want to know..is this phone speaker as good as a sony ericsson?
hey guys, plz tell me ... is there any new firmware released? if yes, then where can i get it.... plz do reply...
Who told you that Nokia 6120c can only support upto 2GB?! I have a Nokia 6120c w/ 6GB microSD! And if you check Sandisk website, it will say that Nokia 6120c can support the current 8GB!
Nokia 5700 can ONLY support 4GB!!!
im not saying these phones r better, but they r in d same price range or even more affordable than 5700 (rundown of cons and pros)
a) Nokia 6120c (smaller screen, inferior music player, only up to 2GB microSD, not stereo speakers but with HSDPA)
b) Nokia 5610 (better camera but not a symbian phone)
c) Nokia 5310 (affordable slim factor phone with 3.5mm audio jack but inferior video recording, not a 3G phone)
d) SE W610 (better camera with ancient video recording, small low resolution screen and not a symbian and 3G phone, tiny keypad buttons)
e) SE W850 (beware of D-pad cracking early with some stocks, ancient video recording, supports TrackID, not a symbian phone)
f) Moto ROKR E6 (Linux powered, better video recording, not a 3G phone, built-in 3.5mm audio jack, no camera flash, bigger screen and touch screen, not so many 3rd party application/games support)
hop dat helps u in deciding wat phone is d best for ya =) good luck
