It's nice. One feature i want to off is the Speak now option while pressing the headphone controller for little more time. Sometimes while carrying bag or something i calls numbers that i don't want to call automatically. The person at other side may not hang the phone and i may unknowingly loose all my money
If you want a good quality basic mobile phone then this is it. YOU WILL need to make sure it is running firmware v5.81 though because it's since I've had this that I'm so positive about it. Personally it does all I need heres why:
1. i love carrying music with me, the music player is well organised, and sound is perfect now.
2. No 3G, I dont care, not going to pay to make video calls, no need in my job and dont see the point in social video calls?
3. basic camera, to be fair its good for daytime shots, but if im out in the night I take my damn Canon digicam lol.
4. Series 40 does the job. Clear menus, fast response, active standby.
5. battery is a fighter. i've got an Orange magic number that i call for 2-3 hours a day! its lasting about 48-60 hours thru this. i play games, i send about 50 texts too.
6. it is tiny!! compact design yet it feels sturdy.
so that's why you shouldnt worry about just buying this phone. these points are only valid once you have the v5.81 firmware though! i admit this phone was awful before the new firmware!!
Want SatNav? Get a smartphone. Want Videocalls and fast downloads? Get a 3g Phone. Want a basic phone that just does the basics but to a high level in a small body? Get the 5310. Quit hating, just buy a phoe that suits what you need!
is there orginal nokia 5310 or no
and if so how can i know if mine is orginal or no??
My 5310's battery is lasting 3 and a half days with extreme usage. Sound quality is one step ahead of 6300 and five steps ahead of SE880i. I am happy it doesn't become hot at all even if I speak for half an hour. It stays as cold all the time. Last year's 5310 was bad due to software problem, but my new 5310 which is 2008 batch with new software (V05.81) has solved all the problems that was there in 2007 batch models. To check the software installed on your mobile just type *#0000# and if you find old version just get the new version installed and the problems you all are facing will be solved.
how does smartphones differ than this one (5310)?
and what is the function of (push and talk)?
thanks in advance!

well, i'm very bout to get this phone, but i've heard that u cant put any prog on it ... is it right ??
(im not into mob software)
the sound is good but nokia (bless them) put the speakers at the back of the phone so put the phone on it's front when u listen to music!!
I find it hard to type on, there is no option to enter digits in the middle of a text, and the camera is very bad quality. Otherwise all is great!

Just ordered this phone, and it's in black color, just came out couple days ago. Do you think it's updated HW-wise? or it's just the same old phone in a new shell. Hope the have fixed the turning off issue.
It supports upto 4gb.dn use more.
Evn usng a 2gb makes the blutooth slw.
Yes it has push to talk.
