Jayson, 12 Nov 2010Pls, shoot the designers! I'd never give a dime for this crap! I wouldn't have it even if N... moreslim is for girls and metros. i like my phones on the larger side.bulky and heavy are good things in my book.btw,nokia makes phones for women too. i guess ulyou might want to look into that. just these daus i was looking into replacing my n70 with a samsung i550 but i just can't find the wifi equiped one. and another thing. android is stupid and sensless. why manufacturers choose to run android on a device which on paper can run windows xp is beyond me. symbian is just as free to use on a handset as android is,doesn't require my last year's computer hardware to run properly,always gives me at least two days worth of battery life per charge and has no stupid file system limitations. all that eye candy is useful if you're a woman or are trying to impress a woman(in which case i pity you).i,d like to thank nokia for keeping a cool head in these times of consumer idiocracy. and i'm sure i'm not the only one who appreciates symbian's efficiency. the x5 just might be the phone to replace my n70,although i have doubts about how tough this phone is and also how affordable it will be on my contract.
Pls, shoot the designers!
I'd never give a dime for this crap! I wouldn't have it even if Nokia pays me to have it! C'mon Nokia, you're lost! This design is soooooo old........it's like 10 years old. There are new and slim components if you missed that. And new display techs as well. Take a look at Samsung!
Another hint, have heard 'bout Android?
fyi... It has smart dialing!
Type letters and use the navi - then youre complete in no time ;-)
If you want to call Mary, then simply 1) slide open phone, 2) type i.e. the first 2 letters "m" and "a" 3) press down 4) press dial
And similarly for quickly texting or emailing Mary... for step 4 simply use the navi and you are done in no time.
Of other fun tricks I like the spin the phone while playing music to play another track - and the long-press on navi to display the essensials (clock, date, profile)
In general I have to say this is really cool phone - I like using it, and its really robust.
Got the x5(black) yesterday. Very good looking phone.
-> the cam is absolute crap, worse than the w810i 2mp cam. Lots of noise & soft pics
-> UI is good but not very fast
-> the OS is very unstable, keeps restarting now & then for no reasons
-> HP out is very loud but the line out SQ is way better than HP out although not as loud
-> Build quality is very nice but the lower front keypad is poorly built. It can be peeled out easily . The battery cover is made of metal.
-> Screen quality is average, somewhat washed but still usable.
-> Buy only if u like the looks else x10 mini is much better option although costlier.
-> Got for rs 9300/-.
Why not get the Motorola Flipout then? At leat it runs on Android with touchscreen and 512mb RAM...
in the initial information this site says that X5-01 has even a touch UI. Bt it doesnt. whosoever manages this sight please check. i rely a lot on this sight

This is not really known by many people especially haters but symbian OS is the king of non-touch screen phones. No other OS can come even close to its standard in the non-touch screen phone world. And if your thinking to compare a non-touch screen, symbian os powered nokia phone with an android phone or an iphone then you must be out of your bloody mind!
I will never buy a nokia phone, unless, they changed their OS.
Symbian is like an OS of a China phone.
Nokia is good, they made an affordable phone. But the thing is, we are in a modern world right now,
they need to change everything, to plan for everything .
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2010Lol what so great about N8 hardware that this is approaching. 256 ram sucks!iPhone 3GS had 256 MB or RAM and so does iPad...Android needs more RAM because it runs on virtual machine unlike other OS. Symbian is relatively lighter OS so 256 mb RAM is not bad...also they are using modest processor for improving battery life than competitors...it's better if you try it first at your local store before commenting!
So these lego so called phones are more relevant than HTC Desire HD which was not rewieved yet? I come on this site less and less, since it looks like a Nokia shop window.
A very compact phone indeed. But I must say that the design looks very 90's...
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2010it knocks indicating message counter????? What happened to a voice indication? I would muc... more...or you could just answer your messages? :--P If you have 22 new messages maybe you answer them so infrequently you need a bit of annoyance to do something about it! :--]
That's not the only way it tells you how many messages you have - just a cute little feature for when you don't want to look at the phone right then.
I really like the "spin-to-shuffle" idea. You'd need BT headphones though :--]
