Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review


A new mid-range music phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard

Wi-Fi and HSDPA connectivity ; Excellent music player audio performance ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; A-GPS satellite positioning and Nokia Maps ; S60 smartphone functionality ; Slide out full QWERTY keyboard ; Good earphones ; 8GB MicroSD card supplied

Bulky design ; 3.2-megapixel camera isn't great ; Control pad awkward ; Some feature options buried in menus ; No touchscreen operation

Nokia 5730 Xpress Music Review


"The Nokia 5730 Xpress Music has its music controls situated handily on the side of the front panel."

With GPS, you can use the onboard map apps to navigate your way around, and the handset offers HSDPA connectivity (super-fast 3G) and Wi-Fi.

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review -


Surfing the net proved to be a rapid affair while the inclusion of Wi-Fi on a mid-range device should be applauded

The front facing keypad and D-pad led to a frustrating user experience

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review


All the talk around Nokia lately has been about the imminent N97 Mini and the sharp as hell Nokia Booklet 3G. However, the new Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is just as deserving of the spotlight. Taking its cue from the E75 dual-slider business blower, it...

Great keyboards, loads of features and great value

Screen is a bit too small for our tastes

A brilliant take on the E75 with features to keep all mobile fanatics happy

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review


We review the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic, a Qwerty-toting music device

Slide-out QWERTY keyboard makes quick messaging a cinch ; 3G/HSDPA, GPS and Wi-Fi ensures a decent set of features ; Camera and video recording impressed, despite lack of pixels

Silly typeface used on keys makes some hard to see ; Slow processor is exposed when using Maps or playing some games ; Screen resolution is very low for displaying web pages and email

The 5730 is the ‘fun’ version of Nokia’s E75 business phone. With a more fashionable look and three dedicated music keys, plus the enticing offer of unlimited music downloads with Comes With Music, this is a fine ending to the existing XpressMusic...

First look at Nokia 5730 XpressMusic


The phone ships with a 2,4-inch QVGA display (240x320 pixels, 31x42 mm). This screen offers 16 million colors, along with a juicy and vibrant picture that is readable in various environments. All in all, it's a likable display that won't give you any...
