Farius, 17 Nov 2010iam already compared them and they are almost same , i want to know the disadvantages of this ... morecheck below comments for user experience with the 5730 and it is better if you do not compare a touch phone with a non touch one as both their symbian OS are different & they r from two different worlds.
e71 guy, 18 Nov 2010thanks for the write. i agree with most of what you've said. plus the new phones they just eat... morein my opinion nokia's biggest failure is nokia E52. if someone bought a nokia phone for the first time and if it was an E52, he would never ever go to a nokia store in his life even if he had to move without a cell phone.
Gelio, 17 Nov 2010Alright, so I finally got my 5730 and I have some things to say about it, but first let me tel... more1. i never had an issue connecting to the main server of n-gage. the free game serial thats been attached with the 5730XM package, i used it to unlock a multiplayer game called 'reset generation' and i liked playing over the net with others and the n-gage software kept track of my progresses without any problem.
2.i never had any problems regarding the missed out key-presses and like you, i do use the numerical keypads without any problem. i only used the keyboard when chatting with frnds. still never saw it being slowed down.
3. yes you are right on some points as it is bulky.
4. i only faced the slowed down problem when accessing large websites or bigger office files. apart from that everything ran fine.
5. apart from browsing,chatting,gaming and reading my lectures, another thing i did was to listen to music and thats the thing i did most of the time and it is really gud. i just loved it.
6. everything i wrote in past tense coz rite now i gave it to my mom as i wanted to shift to a bigger screen and wanted to try out a touch screen. but, 5730 never let me down i must say.
7. maybe you are having problems for some other purpose. maybe the firmware of your cell phone is not installed properly. reinstalling the firmware could help u i ges.
e71 guy, 18 Nov 2010thanks for the write. i agree with most of what you've said. plus the new phones they just eat... moreyea its a wise choice the e71 my dad has it and still he now has it for about 2 years and nothing happened to it its working in an excellent way !
Gelio, 17 Nov 2010Alright, so I finally got my 5730 and I have some things to say about it, but first let me tel... morethanks for the write. i agree with most of what you've said. plus the new phones they just eats up battery fast and not quite as durable. i don't know what to get anymore. well, i am just going to go for an e71. thanks.
Alright, so I finally got my 5730 and I have some things to say about it, but first let me tell you where I'm coming from...
I bought my previous phone for $60 off Craigslist a year ago, which was a Nokia 5310 XM, which I still have but just wanted that little extra "umph" with memory space on the phone (so I could run multiple apps), and maybe a few new features but that still looked the same, was music-oriented, and would just be fun to have. Well, even though some would refer to the 5730 as an upgrade, I don't think so. Depends what you look at as an upgrade? I mean, beyond the bells and whistles, there are some major problems with this thing. My first impression: it's twice as big as the 5310. This means now I have to actually carry a new device on me because, well, it was $300! Sure the screen looks beautiful and you can "play n-gage games" (which I never was able to get to work because the app for it was just a mess. Couldn't communicate with servers, etc... anyway, never was able to try it out in the 2 days I used it. My biggest problem is this: when you buy a phone, what is it's main purpose? To act as a communication device. Now, if the software on the phone is too heavy for the processor to handle, this means it's going to slow you down. I was trying to text on the numeric keypad like I used to on the 5310 but unfortunately found that some of the keypresses did not register because the software was that slow. I guess what I'm looking for is a phone with semi-simple software that's still able to handle it's own load and *not slow me down*! This ruins the experience, as it means I have to work around my phone, instead of my phone working around my needs. It's too bad, since I really thought this phone would be the successor to the 5310 but shamefully enough, the 5730 did not do the trick. Oh, the full keyboard seemed like a great addition to only having a regular number pad too, but to be honest, I could type quicker on the number pad, using T9 or whatever. Don't get me wrong though, the camera was excellent, but again slow because of software.
Does anyone have any suggestions as far as a phone I could try as an upgrade to my 5310? And I don't like touchscreens. I think they're all hype. (no, they are not that advantageous. Sometimes, you need the "feel" of a keypad and sometimes a touchscreen just does not do it, sure I mean if you're trying to watch movies and stuff, but again this is a communication device. Let's separate our devices to only handle the functions they're supposed to perform. i.e. wanna watch movies on the go?> get an iPod, wanna take good pics/video> get a digital camera) And don't say "oh well just get a smartphone!". Uh, no. The only smart thing around here is me for not having to carry around an extra clunky device everywhere I go (during workouts, I use my 5310 with a bluetooth headset and the phone is very small, so doesn't get in the way). But I guess "smart"phones are for people that don't work out or something. Maybe it's for "business-oriented" people who sit on their butt all day, lol... I'm on the move! I stay active! Last thing I want to have to worry about is a $400 4.4 AMOLED touchscreen in my pocket to keep it safe from breaking because it was facing out and I rested a dumbbell on my lap (or my girlfriend sat on me, whatever!). Anyways, this seems like the never-ending debate. I know people have different needs, but I wish manufacturers would also play a bigger part in listening to what consumers need.
iam already compared them and they are almost same , i want to know the disadvantages of this phone ,thanks
Farius, 16 Nov 2010guys i don't know who really better 5530 XpressMusic or this phone any one answer me,thanksHere in gsmarena, you can compare two phones at the same time. Try to compare their specs and see which is better.
In my opinion, this phone is better. The only advantage of 5530 is its touchscreen. But I'm not really into touch phones.
guys i don't know who really better 5530 XpressMusic or this phone any one answer me,thanks
:D, 15 Nov 2010Hey. What is the latest firmware version? You're using which version?2.00
This phone is the best so far that I ever owned. There are only a couple problems so far. For example in the video recorder mode, the light option does not function but it works great as a flash in the camera mode. The phone itself lags sometimes but I'm sure these two problems can be solved with a software update!
