Nokia 5300 XpressMusic review

 

Nokia's music phone range now covers the youth market

Music player controls ; Compact design ; Stereo FM radio

Average camera ; Small onboard memory ; No 3G

Brings a fun and affordable slant to the music mobile market, tempered slightly by the poor phone and low internal memory

Nokia 5300 XpressMusic

 

Nokia has set out its stall for high end music mobiles with its N91 4GB and 8GB mobiles, but it's also keen to scoop up some of the budget end of the market too. The Nokia 5300 XpressMusic is a handset clearly targeted at a young music-loving audience

Nokia - 5300 XpressMusic

 

Music and mobile phones go together like, well, like salt and pepper actually. There are good reasons why you'd want to keep them well away from each other, but somehow they are pulled close by forces ...

As a phone the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic is rather nice and certainly has plenty of features. It also has some serious plus points as a music player, not least good battery life. But the lack of a 3.5mm headset and the small internal memory let it down.

It looks like a phone for kids, but packs in some pretty grown-up tech

Whether you're gaming, listening to music, or taking pictures, the 5300 is a winner
