      Great review.

      All you folks with recent Nokias, how loud is the audio volume through headset? Can you drive a car Aux-in with it ? I have a 5800, and I'm p1ssed off with the volume limit.
      EU Restrictions they say. But WTH in India?

      ballkey, the output through the headset-out of most phones (iPhone and to some extent the SE Experia X1 excluded) is pretty noisy and has quite a bit of hiss. It is not just the volume, but also the quality of the signal. But if you're ok with FM Radio quality, this will be good enough.

      If the level doesn't really cut it for you, you can try using a small inexpensive headphone amp like the FiiO E5 http://cgi.ebay.com/New-FiiO-E5-Earp...DA_Accessories

      I used to use one of these (for in-ear monitors) with my iPod and still use it with my E90 when I watch movies. The improvement in output is reasonably good with the iPod and it adds a lot of balls to the output with the phone (E90). The hiss issue is still there in both cases (a LOT of hiss with the E90), but since I use it only for movies with the E90, it is quite acceptable to me (I'm a bit extra particular when it comes to music). The E5 is the same size as an iPod Shuffle (the model that the current one replaced) and is aluminium, just like the iPod shuffle it impersonates. It has a rechargeable battery (rechargeable thru mini-USB cable).

      For even better results at a bit extra, you can get a cMoy Headphone amp http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38&_nkw=cmoy (from $40 to $65) on eBay,or you can DIY one for a lot less. I got one from eBay, made by a professional, and use the cMoy with my iPod now. With the E90, it just rocks. Great for music also, not just for movies.

      You can use either of these to boost the phone's output for use with your car or with headphones, with good results.

      I'll stop rambling now

      Hydra, the 5800xm supposedly has a good enough signal, almost iphonesque - according to GSMArena.
      Anyway, my problem is not with the quality - I use a EP-830 in-ear, and it sounds good enough for my old MP3s.

      The sound output is the issue. Even at full volume, the output is pretty low. I listened to an iPod and even at 3/4th volume it blasts my ears - had to lower it down immediately. This is incredibly useful when driving aux-ins. I know that the Nokia phones are capable of this; it has to be. Sadly, they've crippled it.

      I tried MP3gain, but it's not good enough. Using another headphone amp. is an option, but another battery, another charging ... that su(ks. Might try that still. Otherwise, looks like I've to upgrade my crappy old head-unit.. or hack my phone.

      Anyways, no more thread-jacking from my side - :shh:

      any one have any idea on the asus p527 was looking for a new phone and in todays paper they are advertising it for 10k.

      the price seems tempting. but i was reading the reviews on a site called gsm arena and they didn't seem good.

      also do you guys have any suggestion for any other phones in that price bracket preferably not nokia since i am looking for a change have had nokia phones only.

      Pawan, for that price range the Nokia E63 seems the best bet. Its a complete VFM phone that. I too am planning to upgrade my phone and can't think of anything else that matches the looks, functionality of the E63.

      Btw, whats wrong with the 6233?
