Nokia 5730 XpressMusic - part 2 - Software and Multimedia

Nokia's night-life-optimised red 5730 XpressMusic gets its final verdict from me in this, part 2 of my All About Symbian Nokia 5730 review, looking at its software bundle and its camera and multimedia. I also give a summary of the device: "There is absolutely no doubting the functionality quotient of the Nokia 5730 Xpressmusic - there are buttons for everything and more applications that most geeks could comfortably embrace."

Read on in the full article.

hmm

It seems that I will have to make a tough decision in choosing between E75 and 5730. I love the metallic nature of e75 but the addition of digital compass and a better numberpad make me lean more towards 5730. Tough. Tough.

I'm veering extremely toward this device now, although it's still a toss-up between this or the superb E55.

My current contract expires in February, and I'll probably be offered an upgrade before that time. The price should have fallen to the predicted 200 - but would I be better off trying to get the device with a Comes With Music service? I think in the long run it would prove to be better value for money, although I'll have to see.

I also imagine the other colours will only be available on networks - it shouldn't make a massive difference but I would rather have a blue one over the red one you reviewed!

Good to see that the photos produced with the handset dont have the famous 'watercolour effect' especially the leaves on the tree like on the previous photo imaging handset like N82. We can quite see the leaves as seperate leaves :-)

Seems like a very nice phone... Nothing too swanky, but still seems like a decent all-rounder.

Steve, how stable does the firmware seem to you? Does the phone hang / any obvious bugs?

Quite stable so far. Just a few display oddities once in a while. No slowdowns or crashes.

Yes, this seems to be something the 3mp sensors don't suffer from!

Given the choice, I'd go for E75, the metal and build sway it for me, but as you say, the equation is very, very close, especially as the 5730 is a bit cheaper.

Is there a UK release date yet? Looking on the different mobile carriers websites shows no mention of the phone. My contract is up soon and this phone is looking very tempting.

Please put me out of my misery by answering the question: what did the cat eat that it was not supposed to?

Cool On it's way

I ordered one of these and I can't wait. Should be here by Monday at the latest. I will keep this for a couple of years and then see how Maemo turns out. By then, I hope enough time has passed to where the Maemo platform will have either succeeded or failed and I can shop around for another phone. Hopefully, my next phone later will be a Nokia; but I have a feeling that if Maemo fails, I will be looking more towards HTC or Samsung's Android type of phones.
