well I got the phone for a week.
Here are my observations about the phone.
well for now there are no hanging problems.
the camera is fairly good but the noise level is quite annoying. the lack of autofocus also is quite dissapointing, but im contented with it though, you can't expect camera excellence from an xm phone.
the sound quality is wonderful and excellent. volume loudness is quite comparable qith the n73(5130 sounds quite louder though), but quality is better and the output in the headset and speakers is really good. 5 stars for the sound quality.
other essential features like messaging, calling, organizer, apps, etc. are just the same/normal like the xm and s40 phones.
the display is fairly good.
the free 1 gb mem. card is enough for me, I'll be storing 100-120 songs in there.
the music player and the music keys + music lights, they look cool also. they're comfortable to use.
overall phone speed and response is fast and good enough.
keypads are quite comfortable, except that im quite annoyed with my thumbmarks on the glossy keys.
Internet browsing is good.
Battery life, well I'm an intense user, that I listen to music from day until night, I text from morning to afternoon. I do 2 hours of charge every 1 and half day/days(? sorry im a filipino i don't speak english too well) and the battery performance is just satisfactory for me.
Well overall the phone was very satisfactory for me and it did a good job for me. I prescribe this to anyone who needs a budget,high-quality music phone.
I hope that I helped you guys and I made the comments for those who are curious about the phone.

will d languange input feature lik chinese input missing after firmware upgrade?
I recently bought this phone for my sister whose major requirement was a sleak, light weight yet trendy handphone with music, camera, downloadable themes, MP3 ringtones and of course SMS. Since this phone was fulfilling all desired features, I bought it. However, my thought got shatterred when my sister tried to send the SMS. The SMS software was corrupt and was not allowing to send the SMS. When you try to send the SMS it hangs and does not resume operations until you remove and put back the battery.
To my utter surprise, the Nokia Care people also could not do much with this trouble and we were left with the faulty phone in hand. Now I have again given this phone to Nokia Care and if the problem is not fixed, I will have no option but to approach to the Consumer Forum to get this faulty handset replaced with a new and perfectly working handphone.
My suggestion, do not go for this phone.
Is it true that Nokia 5130 supports 16GB Micro SD memory card?
If yes, what SD card should I buy (16GB)?
Please help me, guys :)

First of all sorry for my English.
As on my experience I think LG GM200 is better than this one. Cause it offers more features in near about same price.
some features that GM200 offers are as follows.
2. Dolby Surround Sound Technology.
3. 3.5 mm ear jack and one head phone attachment, means music sharing among two peoples.
4. mp4 Video supports ( More Clear than 3gp or Smart movie).
5.1100 mAh battery which gives 8 hrs talktime.
6. BEST SERVICE.(After Sales)
i dont know why people are saying that it has a battery problem....i think it has got a perfect battery timing of 3 days....i am using this phone since 27 april...and there is no problem at all....i have this one in blue color....i think it is an excellent phone... 9500 rupees,100 euros,125 dollars for an xpress music is an amazing deal
People complaining abt battery note that this phone uses a 1020 mAh battery...so its not short of capacity...its just a software issue and would be resolved sooner or later.
BTW don't expect it to give miracle backup of 5-6 days as this is music phone using extra chips and circuitry and a 240X320 res screen.
adelyn, 29 May 2009am currently using dic phone but am facing bettery problems,can any one tel me how i can sort ... moreHEY THIS IS WASIM SHAIKH I AM WORKING IN MOBILE DEPARTMENT ONLY..... MY SUGGESTION TO U IS PLZ EMPTY YOUR battery first then charge your battery for 3 to 5 hours and if your luck is there it will be ok otherwise you have to go your nerest gallery of nokia because the problem of your phone is of software version they will help you for your problem
Comparatively Samsung SGH-L700 is better then Nokia 5310 because in L-700 there is document preview, You may open your world, excel, Power Point or PDF files and battery life is much better then Nokia 5310, but you will have to compromise with its size and weight.
