Fring Updated to v4.00.05, Brings Video VoIP Calls to 5800sFiled Under Nokia 5800 Applications,Nokia 5800 News
Popular VoIP app on the mobile platforms, Fring just got better with the recent update to v4.00.05. The app which we have been often overlooking to Nimbuzz now dislodges Nimbuzz from the top VoIP app for 5800, for its video calls over VoIP functionality, a feature that is available only in Fring as of now.
We have also noticed several other advantages with Fring when compared to Nimbuzz, the most prominent being the data usage during VoIP calls. On an average we found that Nimbuzz uses 4 times more data traffic than Fring for VoIP calls. Thats another reason, to get Fring on your 5800. Wanna know more?

Like every other VoIP app, Fring supports a wide range of IM and SIP services, bringing easy access to IM chats and VoIP calls to 5800ers. For VoIP calls, users can now chose between a voice call and a video call, which works very much like a 3G video call, meaning the front camera of the 5800 will be used during the video call.
What we Like?
- Video calls over VoIP
- Easy to use interface
What we don’t like?
- No smileys (2D or 3D)
- Interface not as polished as that of Nimbuzz
As we mentioned earlier, Fring is now our top VoIP app for 5800s and that is thanks to its video over VoIP feature along with its thrifty data usage. While the absence of smileys and the not so impressive interface may deter fans of Nimbuzz, video calls and low data usage may just drive the bulk of Nimbuzz users to Fring. We are staying with Fring for now and lets see if Nimbuzz responds with an update enabling video calls on VoIP, taking the battle to the next level.
