About the bass and the joystick, for me it depends on the user. If you'd ask me, joystick's just fine but I'd prefer a d-pad.
Anyway, there are no music/sound issues for me and besides, the headset I'm using is trusty and is 'heavy' in sound.
Bottom line is, it's in the user.
As for mujtaba, if you say you read the review...
...5700 has a 2.5mm headset port. The 3.5mm port is in the wired adapter. It's clearly mentioned in the review. : )
i just read the review and now i wanna know about the truth
1 does it hav 2.5 mm jack or 3.5 mm jack???
2.they say it has weaker bass quality is it true??
3 and they say that the joystick does not give that much joy in using it is it trueee?
i wanna know the truth plz help me i am a big fan of 5700 and dont any bad comments bad it
as for moto man and rafsan thay both r nuts and specially motoman does it motorokr e6 hav
first see than talk .. if u wanna say good things about motorokre6 go to hell or in motorokr e6 forum!!!!!!!!
can somebody tell me if 5700 can use an alternative music player???
as in like LCG JUKEBOX
cause it has a symbian base and also a s60 3rd edition base
Weak bass and worse camera quality in this phone. Im dissapointed with Nokia.
Im sure you're right viperkid. My 3250 fell a full 1 meter or more just yesterday! It fell on solid concrete, with the front side hitting it right on! The back cover and the battery both came out. But still, no crack, no problem of anykind.
finally... the review is out! thanks GSM Arena!
can i have the EQ settings please?
i cant seem to find it anymore.
to d guys & gals reading reviews from mobile-review.com, here's wat i hav to say, first of all Mr. Eldar Murtazin of d said website is a big time Sony Ericsson diehrd fanatic. don't take my word for it, but investigate like read most of his SE reviews and Nokia reviews and im sure most of ya guys will agree with me that he the chief editor is biased. in short he is an absolutely Nokia hater and SE lover
here r some UNTRUE and UNREASONABLE comments from his review of 3250:
"after the phone fell down on the leather couch from 1 meter altitude a small crack near the lens appeared"
i hav my 3250 for more than 1 year, and i dropped my phone many times at high places (like about 4 feet) i forgot how many exactly but 100% sure there r no cracks appeared near the lens ever appeared. mind u Mr. Elzar, my phone didnt fell just on a couch but outside d street on d ground.
im pretty sure Eldar M. is just making stories to BIG up other brands. one more story making by Eldar Murtazin of mobile-review:
"Unfortunately I have some bad news for those who wanted to store a big collection of music on his Nokia 3250, there's no Search function, you will have to scroll manually through the corresponding sections."
"The equalizer's influence is slightly noticeable, in order to see it's presence you will have to setup extreme values."
every single Nokia 3250 owner knows dat der is a search function on Nokia 3250 and equalizer settings really affects sound quality and is very noticeable. clearly, another story to make SE look better. a good reviewer always states TRUE FACTS at all times and does not favor any brand.
look at their SE reviews, you'll notice dat most of em are praises.
one more thing, remember d headlines from mobile-review..:
"Nokia N76 - Mass production faults"
"Production faults in cell phones – cause and effect"
u'll notice dat mobile-review never included d word "Sony Ericsson S500i" on d second one on their headline, coz dey don't want to make it look so obvious (coz dey love SE)
anyway both N76 $ SE S500i hav production faults but i think S500i is more serious.
oh yeah, remember a few weeks back mobile-review.com was not accessible bcoz iPhone lovers didn't want their kinda unfair review.. Eldar Murtazin's opinion about iPhone:
"So, the iPhone is a real fashion phone? Exactly, it is the ONLY class it belongs to."
i think iPhone deserves a better credit
d only objective review i've read from them is N91's. which cannot be doubted when it comes to pure music quality. dat's y they hav no choice..
contrary with GSMarena, who gives credible, true, reliable and objective reviews! most importantly, GSMarena have never been biased. one example is their 5300's review:
"When we played one and the same song on the Nokia 5300 and a sample Sony Ericsson W900 which we had available at the time, the head-on competition was indeed lost by the Nokia 5300 when using the original headsets supplied with the respective phones. When we used a third-party full-size stereo headset on both mobiles, it turned out that they sound pretty much the same with no noticeable differences in quality or bass frequencies. That was the case though before we turned on the Walkman MegaBass preset which really made the W900 shine. But after playing a little bit with the manual equalizer on the Nokia 5300 we managed to achieve the same results by gradually gaining up the low and high frequencies."
dat's wat i call - "REAL review"
i just bought this phone, does anyone know where i can find cool themes, software 3rd edit of this phone thx!! :)

@ shaheryar -
the sound quality of nokia 5700 xm through ear phones are superb ... it completley regenerates ur sound out put with more quality using the dedicated music chip ... its sounds are crystal clear than any other phone ...
did u also catch the comment which someone said that his motorokr. e6 battery wont last for at least a day and its the same with his friends motorokr. e6 ? ... the only reason why those motorokr e6 phones got sold out around the world in countries only in 100s and 1000s is becuz they have paid bollywood actors to play in there tv ad's ... but compared to the nokia 5700 xpress music motorokr sucks im 100 % sure about it ... if the name of the phone is motorokr why is it only a bit good for office work ??? it needs to rock as a music phone ??? most of the ppl who use it have said that the sound of it is very very bad ...
ok heres the real deal dont just listen to those ppl go to a phone shop and play with both of the phones for a while then u will understand ur self ... the real roker aint the motorokr but its the 5700 xpress music ... the name says it all ...
