Nokia 5130 XpressMusic mobile phone

 

Nokia's latest mobile phone is bundled with the Comes With Music service but it lacks 3G connectivity

3.5mm headphone jack, funky design, FM radio, Comes With Music subscription included, loud speaker and excellent sound quality, included 1GB microSD card

No 3G, keypad is small and flat, OS is sluggish at times, can't charge via micro-USB port

The Nokia 5130 XpressMusic's lack of 3G connectivity will turn many users elsewhere, but if you plan to use your mobile phone as a music player and aren't interested in the mobile Web, then it's definitely worth a look.

Nokia 5130 XpressMusic (T-Mobile)

 

The Nokia 5130 XpressMusic is a solid music phone that's lightweight, feels durable, and is a genuine bargain, especially with T-Mobile's Even More Plus plans.

Slim and lightweight. Solid music playback. Standard-size headphone jack. Side-mounted microSD card slot.

Mediocre camera. No 3G.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions Nokia claims a 2GB maximum microSD card size, though my 16GB SanDisk card worked fine; there's also 30MB of internal memory. The 5130 displayed album art when available, and the side-mounted media controls light up...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 2" 262K color TFT display of QVGA resolution ; Sleek body design and nice hoice of materials ; Ambient light sensor ; Hot-swappable microSD card slot up to 16GB (1GB card included)Music features ; Top notch audio...

Mediocre camera with no flash or auto focus, sluggish ; QCIF video recording (only good for MMS) ; No 3G ; No stereo loudspeakers ; No smart dialing ; No Java multi-tasking ; No office document viewer ; No Flight mode and no Active stand-by

After all, not everyone can afford an N97 nor does everyone need it. What everyone does need however is good performance from their handset, even more so if reliability can be offered at a low price point. So we felt a thorough review of the Nokia 5130...
