Nokia N97 Review
Jul 30th, 2009 by Pai Solebille

Nokia N97NokiaN97-1NokiaN97-2NokiaN97-3NokiaN97-4

Review:

The Nokia N97 is definitely the phone that should blow the nearest competition away. It features a full touchscreen QWERTY keypad and a massive 32GB of internal memory. This does place the phone in a totally different league. The Nokia N97 features a decent sized 3.5″ LCD display with a brilliant resolution. The camera, always a Nokia strong point, is a 5.0 megapixes with the high quality Carl Zeiss optical lens. That should ensure that you dont have to carry another camera with you again. Connectivity is excellent, supporting high speed internet via Bluetooth, GPS and ofcourse Wi-Fi. The Nokia N97 is turning out to be a multimedia masterpiece and gives you unrivalled power and features all right at your fingertips.

The massive 32GB internal memory does ensure that your whole music collection travels with you all the time. You can expect to store around 8,000 full length tracks on the phone. Ofcourse the memory can be further increased by a further 16GB if needed with the Micro SD slot, to end up finally with a mind blowing 48GB.

The 3.5″ LCD display is a treat to watch full lenght videos and seeing your high resolution photos.

The GPS is a handy tool for those lost in the town centre or to locate the nearest sushi bar. Handset now comes preloaded with maps. The Maps also have an enviably huge database of restaurants, petrol stations etc inbuilt onto the phone.

The sliding mechanism to expose the QWERTY keyboard on the phone is quite unique as well. It does look like its hacked up bit, but the mechanism is quite sturdy and should last the phones life.

The N97 is the latest in the N-Series of phones, which have been hugely popular the last few years. It is also the first to feature both a touch screen and a full QWERTY keypad.

All new Nokia phones now use the Symbian operating system. So you will be able to download the latest versions of loads of Symbian supported softwares onto the phone. Including Skype and Fring. Skype will let you talk to your friends on the phone without having to use up your inclusive minutes. Fring is another software that works on the N97 which is a mashup of all the existing VOIP providers. (Do note that some providers in the UK, including O2 & Orange, do not support VOIP on 3G. You can use the full features only when in WiFi. The Three network does let you use all the features on its 3G network, data package permitting ofcourse.)

The N97 also hooks straight into the Nokia Ovi store. The Ovi store provides content and apps to Nokia supported phones. The Ovi store recently took over the role of the N-Gage gaming platform, which means you can now download games straight from the Ovi.

iPhone 3GS vs N97:

The N97 and the iPhone are both built with a different philosophies in mind. So comparing the two, one on one on features would not be the right way to compare them.

The N97 is way ahead of the iPhone as far as technical features are concerned. However the user experience on the iPhone is better.

It is important to note that the Nokia N97 supports multi-threading. The Symbian that runs on the N97 is a ‘proper’ operating system. The operating system on the iPhone is a bit primitive.

What that means in lay man terms is that, when you open a software (say Skype) on the N97 and minimize it, the process then runs in the background and does not exit. It is a surprising but true fact that the iPhone 3GS does not yet support multithreading. So if for example you log into Skype on your iPhone and then say move to browsing, technically the Skype process is killed off and you are logged out of the Skype. You will need to log back in explicitly to Skype again if you want to use it. The iPhone has now come up with the concept of notifications where a process can notify you of any events that might have occured whilst the process has been deactivated. This is especially a problem when handling incoming VOIP calls. Well you would not receive it on the iPhone if you have not physically opened the software and hence made it active. The notification feature though, is as yet miles away from solving this major issue on the iPhone.  Apple does work hard to keep this problem neatly hidden from the external users, by compelling the iPhone app developers to ensure that this issue is not too clearly made known to the user.

However it should be noted that the iPhone does the simple things it does really well. The GPS on the iPhone that plugs into Google Maps is a lot easier to use than the N97 maps (especially with the compass showing you the direction of sight). The iPhone once you start using it, is highly addictive and tough to let go off. The Nokia N97 unfortunately does not have this wow factor.

Sony Ericsson W350i Black Review
Jul 28th, 2009 by Pai Solebille

Sony Ericsson W350i Black69b69d7b9f87c692c4f1d4637878256ea1d62db5c052d5ab45c178b3688ef03f

Review:

The Sony Ericsson W350i mobile phone brought to replace the hit W380i, is the newest and best Walkman® branded mobile phone out from Sony. The phone lives up to the Walkman® brand quite well.

Though the design of the Sony Ericsson W350i is that of a portable MP3 player and a small one at that, it has a lot of space inside to do more that just play music. Stores upto 470 songs on the card that comes with the phone. You can use the latest technologies in the market like TrackID™ FM Radio MegaBass™ RSS feeds and much more. So if you are into tracking music online via blogs etc this is the phone for you. If there is a new album out there that might interest you, the phone will let you know (ofcourse you will have to set it up to do this).

The pre-loaded Guitar Legend™ mobile game is a great new addition on the phone. You could spend hours playing this game if you are into music.

In all the Walkman® branded phones, this definitely is the most stylish of them.

The phone having been built around its music features means that you can use dedicated music keys to manage the player whilst its playing. There are dedicated keys for all the major actions like play, shuffle, rewind, equalise etc.

If you are in a pub and hear a tune and are not too sure about the title, just use the TrackID™ feature to identify the song. That should impress your friends.

The MegaBass™ feature on the phone helps you add a lot of depth to the tune on your phone. This does enhance the muscial experience of the phone.

Once set up you can receive RSS feeds that you are most interested in. So if a news breaks somewhere you know it before anyone else, right on your phon.e

The memory card is decent. Stores upto 470 of your favourite songs. The card though could have been slightly bigger to help you carry more music on the go, but then 470 is still a decently big number.

The 1.3 mega pixel camera though is not the best in the market. Does come in handy to click the occasional pictures. Again this feature could have been enhanced to include atleast a 3 mega pixel camera to make it competitive in the market.

The batteries are excellent. They lost very long. So charging them everyday is not needed. This ofcourse is essential for a music player, and the phone does not let you down on this end.

Specification:

  • Dimensions: : 104 x 43 x 11 mm
  • Weight : 80g

Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Red

Review:

If a great multimedia experience is what you are looking for, the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music is the phone for you. The touch screen interface just adds to the whole experience.

The Xpress Music range has always been a popular offering from Nokia. This phone was one of the first touch screen mobiles introduced by Nokia. Entertainment at your fingertips is what this phone delivers.

The phone supports WiFi and HSDPA. The QWERTY keypad is easy to use. The default Nokia Maps application via the GPS comes by default on the phone. The maps are pre-installed on the phone, so you dont have to install them yourself. The maps features are quite handy to located the nearest amenities.

The massive upto 8GB expandable memory means that you can store and carry upto  a massive 2000 songs. Ofcourse you will need to get a new card to utilise the full memory power. The interface is very user friendly. There is even a 3.5mm AV socket for using you favourite headphone if you wish to do so. There is also a TV out to play your videos straight on the TV.

The Nokia 5800 is the first phone in the XpressMusic range to feature a touchscreen.

The 3.1 mega pixel camera is one of the best on the market (even though Nokia ships 5 mega pixels by default with other phones these days).

The loud speaker on the phone is quite loud at high volumes.

Battery life is excellent. Again a feature that is a must for multimedia phones these days.

Specification:

  • Dimensions : 111 x 51.7 x 15.5mm
