By coincidence I wrote about n8 today, talking about value for money or not. My friend bought this phone today, and it was a complete disaster from opening the box. First it froze upon country selection normal symbian set up, then a very obvious pixel element had blown in middle of screen! What a load of over priced junk! And I thought the 5230 was poor with it's cheap plastic assembly, last time anything Nokia horrid stuff, remember when Nokia built top notch phones what happened?
Manoj Barik, 28 Sep 2010I hv bought nokia 6700 slide one day before, & compel to return due to poor camera quality... moreYes manoj even I am facing the same problem the camera quality is really poor. i also read that its camera is equivalent to 1.3 MP. Why did nokia compromise with camera quality in a camera phone???
Also whats your opinion about sound quality. For me its volume is very low. I can hear the surrounding traffic while listening to music. What about you??
this is a good phone..but whoever of you experiences problems about this phone/we can swap it to my samsung g600 5mpix phone with auto focus also..mine has no problems at all..charger is still original//phil. people only..check my g600 online.
any one who knows Symbian s60v3 very well please tell me about camera quality.
is there really problem with this phone memory card?
nyee, 01 Oct 2010been using this fone for the past 5 months and have'nt encountered an problems...good pictur q... morehay buddy,thanks for appreciating Nokia,i love Nokia.

2. do u encountered any memory card related problem.
3. dose it gets restart automatically.

For comparison between c5 and 6700 go to http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=3122&idPhone2=3035
Don't go for this phone.... IT SUCKS !!! go for Nokia C5 its a awesome phone but only thing you have to compromise is CAMERA C5 has got 3.2MP whereas this one got 5mp... but 6700 has not got GPS and 3.5mm audio jack. But you will find GPS and 3.5mm jack in C5 and 6700 cost 9500 where as C5 costs around 7800 in INDIA. Better go for C5..... C5 ROCKS!!!!

Thank you for your prompt reply.
I went to day to the nokia care center , at that they switch in the device and
asked me to use it . as per the customer service there , he said there might be
a software issue , and if they reinstall it , some time the phone will not get
on at all , due to the miss matching of the version.So I came back and now it
is not getting on again.I am really disjointed with this mobile unit.I cannot go
again and again to the care center. unless i go for another brand..
anyway thank you again to the effort.
