Nokia 5610 - is it worth it?

What lies behind the 5610..

There have been a lot of complaints going on around the Nokia 5610 - so much that it makes me think whether it's worth the purchase. Besides having an extremely dumb battery(if u listen to 2hours of music per day, you have to charge every evening) and a camera that sucks - this eXpressMusic phone even has it's speakers being sworn at. Bad speakers on a music phone? What was Nokia thinking??

On a personal note, I'd say that the N73 ME is a much better phone to go for in terms of value. The n73 me has double the features of the 5610 besides having a superior operating system.

Here's a complaint list for this phone:


Camera Cons: it's only dual led that's why the "Noise" is really noticeable in low light condition, not Carl Zeiss.
Other cons: Navg Poor, Always can't read memory card, Hardware Error, Hangs often, Average battery life, Slider keys not as responsive, average music playback.
but it sure looks cool!

Hi all,

Never buy this damn set. They have display issues. The display just goes blank. search well before u take a decision. Also Nokia Care in India (dont knw abt others) is really bad. I have submitted my phone thrice with the same issue.
When I went to the carecenter, there were lot many with the same issue.

Seems Nokia made a big mistake with this handset huh? About Nokia Care India, it always sucks - you'll have threaten them with a case at the consumer forum if they're to do anything at all.

No one said the handset doesn't work, it doesn't fulfill expectations that were hyped to the users - that is the problem.

And when people start submitting complaints to a complaint forum then there's something seriously wrong about this handset. Buddy, check out the links in the article and get back here.
