Many ppl are confused between Nokia 2700 classic and Nokia 5130 XpressMusic.....i have discovered a comparison between these two phones which will help you to pick your choice....here.......
Nokia 2700 Classic. I've purchased this phone just a week ago the performance is awesome, looks are stunning, camera is crystal clear, Screen size & resolution is admirable, sound is rocking, weight is appreciable, battery backup is great.
In Short you can not get any product better than this in just Rs.4850.
Just bought the phone day before yesterday, the phone is really good its looks r awesome, display is quiet good when compared to nokia 5130, music quality is good..., camera clearity is good wap-GPRS speed is good features r good tooo...... Good fone in an reasonable price........
yup even i noticed that on my mobile. It let's you download maps from internet and also has some options like "finding address""locations" etc using those maps. I did not download anything as of now to check it.
will do it sometime later and will post the feedback here.

yet another thing, the videos i saw of this phone on youtube like this one for instance, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yl5Jn_pblQ, the phone has 'nokia maps' installed. I thought this application can only be used with GPS enabled phones, whats the use of it being installed on a non GPS phone like the 2700c?
the keys are not hard. but the keypad is small.The keys are held too close to each other so it becomes a bit difficult to compose a quick sms.

One more issue, how are the buttons to the touch, do they have a good tactile feel or are they hard?
It's a sturdy mobile..doesn't look like a cheap plastic one and the silver lining does look as if it will last a few years.
as far as build quality is concerned it's definitely a good buy.

what about the general build quality? Any squeeks from the back cover or buttons or any low quality plastics used anywhere?
What about the silver coating on the sides, does it look like it can withstand some years of use?
Punch, 03 Aug 2009So finally it hits the markets... i've been waiting for it a long time.
Can someone please ... moreI think it'l be available in al configurations....not just in hindi but also in other regional languages as well.
When i bought my 5130 it was available in english+hindi keypad and english+malayalam keypad...not sure if english only one was thr, but i think it will be thr.
So finally it hits the markets... i've been waiting for it a long time.
Can someone please comment on the general build quality?
And is the phone only available with the Hindi characters too on the keys? Or both with and without Hindi keys are available?
I'm gonna get it soon!
UPDATE: to the guys who were asking about the battery backup.Well, i got 2 days of battery life. This included 2 hours of voice calls,typed 100 text sms, 15 mins of browsing, half an hour of music and video and Radio. clicked few pictures and recorded video.
I believe the backup is pretty impressive. One can expect 3 to 4 days of backup easily under normal usage.
well i have used EP 630 with Nokia 2700c and it's satisfactory but not to the level of my Laptop.A.So guys if anyone is looking for a music phone consider Sony ericsson W350 i..It has a good headphone.

I'm using philips SHH9700 headphones(similar to EP-630, maybe a bit better) with my 5130 and the audio quality is just superb. Sometimes I feel its even better than my pc which uses a Realtek HD audio card.
The bass is deep and tight and the treble is awesome and a nice balanced mids. The sound is well balanced across all frequency range.
People who are looking for a music phone should seriously consider buying 5130XM...however the supplied headphone is same as that of 2700 and its crap...
Only buy 5130 if you can afford to buy a decent quality headphone which would cost INR700-1400. Otherwise you just wont notice its awesome sound quality...and its a waste to spend money on 5130 without the proper headphones to listen to.
Well, i have been noticing the comparisons between 5130 and 2700 classic here. There is no point in comparing these mobile because they are aimed at different audience altogether. 5130 is a music phone with dedicated keys meant for music enthusiastic people. Nokia 2700 C is not a replacement or alternative of Nokia 5130 but it's definitely a replacement of successful nokia 3110classic and there is a price difference of 1,000 Rs too( ~20$)
so it's a low end phone which does most of the things well and has lot's of features in it. I don't think there is a mobile which offer's 2 mp camera, 1GB card, 2 inch screen with 240 x 320 pixels resolution, radio for 4800 Rs(~100$).
well, the sound quality is just average. changing the settings in equalizer helps a bit but will not make a significant difference.. I have even tried to listen to music using a creative headphone. The quality is satisfactory. music is clear but it lacks bass. If you need music quality then look at Sony ericsson mobile in this range. SE W350 comes in your range..
But the only advantage you will get with W350 is excellent music and headphones while the screen, reliability and features cannot be matched with Nokia 2700 classic.
Evaluate your needs a choose the mobile wisely. If you just need Music and extremely cool looks then consider Sony w205 too. Else W350.
compared to 5130 one bad thing is that it doesnt have dedicated music keys or external volume keys and it doesnt come with a usb cable...which is quiet irritating when u r listening to music
and music is loud like the local china sets..and no bass effect which al nokias lack..i got it for 5.1k in bangalore nokia priority..3 days back..
rest of the things lik battery backup and features..no doubt its one of the best phones for tat price..
