Oops ok my bad STUPID ME!! :D i just tried it then found out it's reversed then when u take the picture it turns back to normal,i thought it was the other way round...Sorry for the disturbance,and btw, i tried recording a video without twisting the phone,it plays with sound with no problems
MusicMaster...Well ok i'd be totally understanding this thing if it's like that all the way, but why while viewing the screen and before taking the picture everything is just in it's place and this issue isn't there? That's what made me wonder in the first place, and not having a simple but very useful reverse effect in the edit option is bad coz it was one of the options raved about in the 5700 propaganda (the self portrait mode)
Oh come on, it's plain common sense. Of course, when the phone is twisted in front of you, you appear as if you're facing a mirror. But when you take pictures(or videos), it will show the real picture, not a mirror image.
5700's battery life is no issue at all.
In a day I talk on the phone for a total of about an hour, send 50+ sms, listen to music (using third party headsets)for almost two hours and the battery lasts for up to three days.
But if I use camera, browse the web for about 30 minutes to an hour, use applications and play games, the phone lasts for up to one and a half to two days.
I haven't experienced charging it every day. This outlasts my previous N73 MusicEdition and 6270.
Hey all i have a question about my 5700...I've had this thing all the time and i thought it was something common but then i thought i'd ask in case there was a solution for it...Whenever i use the phone for the self portrait mode 2 take a picture of me and my friends,when i click 2 take it the picture appears reversed from what was on the screen (meaning if i was on the left side i become on the right and anything written is shown backwards) is this common??
I heard that 6120 is even better than 5700 in all respects, be it loud & solid music or even the smartphone capability.
Has anyone found same too.
I dont care whether a phone is for youth or adults (though i am 18),I need a rocking music phone with excellent smartphone abilities.
Please suggest if u know any other phone?
Pencil key is simply that key you see in Nokia series 60 phones, usually on one side of the keypad. It has a small pencil drawn on it. Its function is to help copy and paste items like you do on your PC but in a limited sense. In nokia5700, it is absent but its function is performed by the # key.
Is the joystick that bad as specified in the review? And what about the battery life that is skipped in the review? I think joystick & battery life is very important for any Smart/Music phone.
what the hell? sry Stjf no1 here have any of same problems than u have... phone's firmware is very stable. its your fault. have u tried resetting the phone or update firmware or clean memory card ? i think u cant say its "worst" phone u ever had for that xD i hav used 5700xm now about 5½ months every day without any problems .
Sjtf, for no. 1 and 2, i dont find it in my 5700. and in no 3, well, it restarts less than another symbian phone imo. and so far my phone has restarted thrice in 2 months.
worst phone i ever had... i've had it for like 2 months and it spent 1 and a half months at the technician with problems such as:
1.no message tone sounded when i recieved a message, no new message sign or envelope to show a new message.(sa basically the only way to see if you have a new message was to go to your inbox all the time)
2.When i twisted the mobile to any other function it wouldnt go back to the keypad mode unless i restarted it.
3.it would restart some times(which i think is a general problem)
4.this is not a problem as such.. but to exit the music player you have to follow some steps:S which are:
(a)click on "go to now playing"
(B)go to options and then equaliser
(c) click on one of the choices and then edit(default won't work cause it can be edited)
(d)and finally go to options and exit
So if you are between this and another phone you should probably go for the other one( im personally disappointed with nokia.. hadnt baught a nokia phone for a while.. and probably won't buy one again for some time)
Bass might be crap playing music from the phone itself... but the earphones built to make up some compensation. if u plug the ear phones to an ipod... itll have as much, if not more bass than a sennheiser earphone.
ok for u mobile-review is fair but never to me unless dey correct d search function missing on 3250 (r dey dat lazy NOT to just update and correct a review so NOT to confuse people wat a phone really has?) Eldar Murtazin, definitely NOT a professional reviewer for me. if dey can't CORRECT mistakes and FALSE info, i will never call Eldar M. or mobile-review a fair reviewer. if dey can stand it, i cannot.
reviewing lots of devices/OS versions from a handset maker never means dat a reviewer is NOT biased. a good, honest and unbiased reviewer states accurate, TRUE, updated info everytime and does not MISLEAD buyers. wat wil i do with tons of reviews with some FALSE info in it? its like saying a banana is red OR a mango has a blue color LOL!
i know not all reviews r perfect, but i cannot accept UNTRUE and UNRELIABLE reviews. again, they said 3250 having NO search function on its music player. a review doesn't need to b perfect but dey MUST contain GENUINE FACTS. not FACTS of Eldar Murtazin.
its FAIR to brand Eldar Murtazin as biased coz he had all d time but unfortunately to date, dey haven't corrected it. so imagine, how many potential 3250 buyers hav been MISINFORMED about an important feature a musicphone must hav..
mistakes r part of life, but we human beings r privileged to CORRECT it. sad thing is dat not everybody makes dat move.. an excellent example is Eldar Murtazin
im glad dat i've helped u before. so, u know for a fact dat wat i told u dat day was TRUE and not FAKE stuff with concrete basis. but how would u feel, if hav d Eldar M. syndrome and told u dat N73 doesn't hav a search function in its music player even it has?
its definitely fair to criticize a review as long as dat review is DISHONEST, inaccurate, misleading and most of all FAKE information!
i dont hav to go to Russia to meet him. reading almost all of his reviews and news from their site is enough proof for me to say that they are BIASED
take a look at these reviews, u'll notice dat in all of Sony Ericsson's reviews in d camera department, Eldar Murtazin does not talk about on d image quality more and only concentrates on all positive sides. opposite to Nokia's, Eldar has all d time to criticize in detail negative points and and EMPHASIZE how NOISY d pics are.
"Night photos looked quite acceptable and are sharp in the majority of cases. The best photos are taken when there is a bright light spot, in the even lighting, long distance between the camera and the shoot object causes noises, which is quite typical."
i had SE K750 before, but im sure d pics r noisy too in cases.
i never seen d kind of phrasing Eldar uses on SE reviews (especially from K750) to Nokia - "noises, which is quite typical"
i aint getting paid by phone companies but yet why would people try to take down a good phone while so many people are looking forward to use it ... if someones satisfied with it he or she just say how he or she feels about it thats wht gsmarena is for dont u think ... but the person who i think whose emotionally involved is u no one else cuz ur replying over and over again to my comments :-) ... from ur last replys i can see how exactly angry u are ... anyway if u like the w950 i why dont u comment on it on its own page ... and if u turned into a person who says that mobile-review . com aint giving a better place for s.e. that will be ur idea but not mine not of few others either my man why are u getting involved in comparing phones , from what i know u started with the mobile-review.com ... maybe ur a friend of the owner of that site who knows whatever man ... try to control ur anger and stop getting involved with my comments about 5700 and mobile review web site ... :-) and start by helping someone with something on the w950i page ... and for the recored i have seen the 5310 and 5610 in action ... :-) now that we are getting somewhere ur saying that every phone series is a gimik also the walkman series ... ok bro whatever u say lets end this ...
hello...i have both W900 and 5700.
5700 has a lot better speakers than W900..:)
i mean in case of speakera quality...
my 5700 can play video with sound in whatever way i record... that just some S60 bugs.;)
concerning the external dual speaker. Id have to say it is definitely nothing great. bass sounds bit fake and no 'oomph'. However this isn't really a concern because if one was talk about audio quality in detail then just plug your ears up. The external speakers is mainly just for light entertainment and ringing of course.
Concerning the review. I'd say its just an honest review. It is exactly how I would express it myself. All that was mainly criticised or pointed flaws is pretty true especially for the joystick. However I do have to disagree slightly on the weak bass since it does have an comfortably acceptable good bass on earphones (Not with the bundled earphone). Anyways I thought the review was pretty good since it didn't mention any false disadvantages that i've not noticed or read and since it did praise the phone for its real capabilities like the speed, os, display and its pretty well built swivel function.
Ps. I dont like the alarm in this phone due to very limited settings etc. Typical of all nokia alarms besides allowing multiple alarms.
