Nokia 5700 XpressMusic Review
The Messages menu has nothing new to offer – you can easily compose SMS/MMS or Email and located in My Folder are templates which are handy for text that is often used in messages. The fast T9 can help you enter text quickly. The EDGE and UMTS connection helps for fast retrieving of Emails. In order to limit the generated traffic, you can set the phone to download the headers only, or to limit the size in KB.
For local connectivity, it supports Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR (enhanced data rate) which allows for fast transfer between the phone and compatible device. We transferred with speed of 120KB per second, which means a MP3 song (approximately 5MB) will be transferred for about 45 seconds via Bluetooth. This is a fast speed for Bluetooth, but still you can obtain better transfer speed using a miniUSB cable: in the Data Transfer mode we were able to copy files to the phone’s memory card with speed of 810KB per second, so we transferred the same song for 6 seconds, almost 8 times faster than with Bluetooth. Once you have connected the phone to a computer, you can choose either Data Transfer, PC Suite or Media player modes.
The user also disposes of an IR port, which will come in handy if one needs to connect the 5700 to devices that do not support Bluetooth, usually indispensable for information exchange with older models.
With synchronization, you can use the PC Suite of the set or download a newer version from the Internet site of Nokia. We used the same version we had used with Nokia N76 without any problems. We used the Bluetooth connection between the computer and the phone for the synchronization of 140 entries (contacts & calendar entries) and the transfer took us less than 20 sec., which is a very good speed.
Thanks to the UMTS data and the QVGA resolution of the display, loading and viewing a standard HTML web pages is easy job. The phone has no problem rendering all pages and reading phoneArena's news was a pleasure. Scrolling left-to-right and top-to-bottom is done with the phone's joystick, and a mini-map shows you, which part of the page you are looking at. The pages loaded pretty fast and as a whole, we had a great experience with the browser, so we definitely like it more than the Internet Explorer, built in Pocket PC phones based on Windows Mobile. The browser can load RSS feeds for even faster access to information.
What we also loved about it is the history: when you use 'back' to see pages you've seen earlier, you see the pages as thumbnails, you can open from the phone's cache.

1. Same features as in N95 except 2 megapixel camera. 2. Has GPS functionality also. (U need to subscribe with provider) 3. You can enable name announcement of caller which notifies u of the caller by name from phonebook 4. Excellent music + bass (with headphones the bass reverbrates) as good as Sony Ericsson. After the loud function has been activated I found it better than my friend's Sony Ericcson.It is good. You can throw away your creative music player. 5. Video quality is also good. And the size is restricted to size of memory. The mic's quality is very good and picks iup conversation from6 feet off. Crystal clear. You can throw away your voice recorder also. 6. Symbian Version enables you to install programs (Sony P1 only available) 7. Cost in India Nokia 5700 - Rs.12500 / N95 - Rs.34500 / Sony Ericcson P1 Rs.29990. Good features for less than half the cost. 8. 369Mhz Processor - Faster processing. No hangups at all. N73 thinks a lot sometimes. The Bad: 1. The swivel goes 180 degrees in clockwise direction and 90 degrees in anticlockwise. If you force differently, it will break. If it breaks, new phone need to be purchased! (Do not give this phone to children!!) 2. Image quality is good outdoors but not excellent. But Indoors there is always noise even with the flash. Outdoors if u use flash with ambient background, the background tends to wash out! 3. Sometimes it automatically goes into panarama mode without user input. I guess this is a software issue and can be fixed. (I still have not found how to fix it!) Overall: 9/10

The accent of the reviewer is atrocius,its simply atrocius,please learn some pronunciation because its almost impossible to properly undestand.Do yourself a favor and attend english classes or take a trip to an english-speaking country. by the way the review is kinda poor,just my opinion
