I'm no processor expert here, but judging from the fact that the reviewer states "The device is really snappy and you will evidence slowdowns quite rarely, say, while opening your gallery if you happen to have many pictures there. The same goes for almost all Symbian powered devices that have come out in the last year, so in reality you don’t really feel much difference using the handset despite the faster CPU," I have to wonder how valid this arguement against the N97 is. Would it really have made any difference if they jacked up the CPU to 600 just because it looks better spec wise even though performance wise it's no different, not to mention it puts more of a load on the battery? While there is no way of confirming this for sure, it would seem like the answer would be no based on this reviewers perspective of how this compares to other S60 devices. My interpretation of this is that he just stated that there is no difference between this phone and an E71 running at 369MHz. Am I wrong here?

The difference it's much in relation to the 369MHz CPU. Much more fast than the previous cpu, in all aspects. More fast than N97 including.

The Philippines seems to be experiencing a delay with this unit. I mean, the 5730's already in the market but the 5630 is still nowhere to be found. Nokia personnel claim that no advisory whatsoever has been given to tell when that phone will come.

I am using 5630 XpressMusic for last 6 weeks; as usual Iam attracted with all the new features and it is really nice. But performance of the PHONE fails comparing with a Base model of Nokia! I am facing the following: 1) Mobile gets hang and automatically restart while attending incoming calls frequently only (more than 25 times it happend) 2)Voice record (MMS compatible) not possible to memory card 3) Sound quality while calling/receiving not impressive comparing to 5320 XpressMusic 4)I did contact with service centre & nokia cust care but not solved the issue 5) Awaiting for the Firmware version ie. V12.20 & facing problem with current hand set! Awaiting your comments

Hi, I'm interested in Nokia 5630 & Nokia 5320 XM, And now I'm confused which one to buy, Looks like you've personally experienced these 2 phones, Hmmm, Which one is better in audio quality ? (Both loudspeaker & headphones) And between these 2 phones which one'll you recommended ? Thanks to your attention, and I'll be very thankful if you answer my answer =)

Speaking in loudspeakers there doesn't exist any that beats the 5700. The experience with the headphones it's similar to the 5700 and 5320, perhaps better. Better in basses.

Did you solve the problem with the restart? Can you tell me what you did to fix it? I'm having the same problem and don't know what to do.
