Very very very excellent phone. I've nothing to say about this. Great GREAT great :-):-):-):-):-):-)
i got 1 2day.. i think its gr8 considerin d price.. although d camera is below satisfactory.
i dont know that these commenter's feel, that say all rubbish
i have purchased 2 phones, and am more than satisfied.
as far as the camera is concerned --- best for the price
and talking about the mysic player, dont know if these nerds want which special type.
my opnion - best deal, best value for price
EXCELLENT PRODUCT, must try it, music lovers with thin pocket are bound to love it.
the look, most apealing
it's avery good phone. i have it and i can say that it's sound quality is awesome.one of my friend have recently bought nokia 5800, and my phone have same quality as this phone.but in camera meassures it's not too good. but man u can trust me and nokia 5130.go 4 it!
Just bought a 5130xm today for 100$. Tested with the inbox headset and the sound quality is horrible. Tested with a pair of sennheiser earphones and the sound quality is very good. Ordinary s40 interface. Vivid display. Overall, the phone is good for our budget- conscious pals out there.

#Who should we believe? Experts at GSMArena Review saying this phone has the best audio quality ever on a mobile phone with proof.
#Or, should we believe unexperts like you too saying the audio quality is crapp? Where is your proof?
I personally have this phone (Probably you don't even have one) and I can assure you it has the best sound quality ever, the THD and IMD can't get any lower and the Frequency response is perfect (Practically as perfect in sound quality terms as an iPod 2G!!)
Plus all XMs has a dedicated audio chip search other reviews on the net and you'll see.
So long haters.

Anonymous, 15 Aug 2009where you read it has a dedicated music chip? it has Dedicated music keys with backlightinghi , i agree wid u i just brought this mobile. i just thought that it has dedicted music key but after using this mobile i got to know that the sound quality is not as good as it is reviewed.it is crap in sense of music but wid this i must also stat that nokia is d king of mobile world. u can trust nokia blindly. so go for nokia but don't think nokia will provide u good music phone for just rs 5000 u hv to spend more to get good quality music phone. and one more thing i confirmed that nokia 5130 doesn't got dedicted music chip it has just got dedicted music keys and 3.5mm jack. anyone in india can confirm it by just calling nokia care 01130303838.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2009it has a dedicated music chip which performs better than the 5800xm "read the review" dummywhere you read it has a dedicated music chip? it has Dedicated music keys with backlighting
- Excellent crisp sound quality
- Very good music phone
- It's not stated on Nokia's site but cellphone review websites have tested and 16gb Micro SD cards do work on this phone
- Very decent price and cheaper than Nokia 5310
- Can film video
- Attractive and Fairly small size cellphone.
- Poor camera though it's supposed to be mainly a music phone
- Poor video camera quality.
- Battery life could be better
- Average screen resolution
- Small screen
- Comes with horrible headset
For a music phone it's excellent. For a camera.. not so much. The cellphone produces excellent sound quality as long as you buy a decent headset to listen to the music. In my opinion, the simplicity, attractiveness, and price of the Nokia 5130 XpressMusic phone makes this a pretty good phone.
By the way, make sure to remember to download the firmware for this cellphone from the Nokia website.
