Hi -- I am just wondering whether there are different versions of Vivaz? For example, some sellers advertise their Vivaz as "Vivaz V51" or "Vivaz U5". What's with the numbers? And which one is correct? I'd appreciate if someone could help because its just making my purchasing of the phone take longer than necessary because I am now unsure. I thought I could find the answer on the specs page but it does not seem to be there...anyhow...please help :) - many thanks!
Nokia hater, 13 Mar 2010Good. At least one good pricing from SE.Dear Nokia hater,
I think your doing a great job helping and assisting users with their problems, keep the good work going on man :)
Because there are a lot of se users who lack decent experience, so giving them a hand is a very thoughtful act from you.

Anonymous, 13 Mar 2010Thanks Nokia hater!!! It's great to know!!! Does your Satio work fine with GPS? Good signal?Yeah it was good, great navigation, also with voice. But recently, it doesn't get a fix. I don't know why, but it not only my device, my dad's 5800, my sisters C905, and my friends N86 also haven't gotten a fix on the satellites recently. I'm confused.

And one more thing, having the same screen size and res doesn't enable this, having the same OS does.
Same screen size and resolution and OS as Nokia 5800, so is it possible that Nokia Maps Navigation, runs on this Vivaz?
Couse I have now it for free on my 5800 and i would like to use it in my next phone Vivaz.
Anyone knows? have u tried GPS lucky owners?
Postal service mis-sorted my delivery, and it seems I have to wait until Monday. I do feel a bit miserable. :)
Other than sharing my pain, I think I have to say I think it seems to be a phone with both good specs and a nice, clean design at a decent price. Also interested in seeing what happens on the OS and app front now that Symbian is going open source (even if I understand this edition only is half-open).
I enjoy listening to music via the speakers and I will be grateful if anyone with the handset could tell me how loud and the quality of the phone speaker is on this model? I currently have a W995 which has brilliant speakers and it makes me hesitant to switch this phone. Thanks.
I work at carphone and have had a play with this handset today. V impressed. The video and camera are excellent. Best video capture I've seen on a mobile phone.
I tried this phone today, and here are my personal take:
The user interface experienced that i have is not that bad, it's not a slow device eventhough it is a resistive touchscreen, it has some lags here and there, i just wish that it comes with a capacitive touchscreen i guess S60 does not support capacitive touchscreen yet (correct me if im wrong). the formfactor is good, very pocketable size. I just wonder if there are some applications installed if it will affect the speed of the device.
I tried the black model but personally i dont like the materials being used, its kinda like the nokia 5800, but a little better. the black coating, i dont like, just like the X2.
and lastly, Symbian OS is not that bad, but SE should have selected another OS, personally i dont like S60 (i hope there will be an upgrade), the build quality is good, very light weight, the coated finish is not that nice, very nice spec, except for the OS...
We've had our delivery of Vivaz this morning, have to say that first impressions of the phone is pretty good, sleek and attractive. Once I switched the handset on and found what my network (Vodafone) had done to it, I was horrified - they had changed the UI for their own Vodafone UI and it is horrendous. Just a heads up to all Vodafone UK users who are thinking of taking the Vivaz to go and play with one and make sure you like the front page UI.
