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..
thanks for your reply moto143. i want to know one more thing. what is your saying on the sound quality of this phone?
i have listened to mp3 songs in 2700 in a shop in chandigarh. but i feel that its sound is too much noisy and not crystal quality while i was listening to mp3 songs. what is your say on this? or whether the sound will become clear after doing settings in the equaliser.
please reply i want to buy a phone today in 4000-5000 range
I bought this phone this Saturday, The phone is a real value for money. Music is good and loud. Price Rs 4800/= Bangalore.
Cons: Attracts finger prints, Takes time to adjust to the key pad
this phone giving the imprestion that now nokia at its worst what are they doing they making phones looks same to each other bad camera, bad music ,bad battery, bad design and on the other hand look at the samsung and lg phones they are simply rocking these days but nokia shame on them and plz stop fooling the people for god sake
i don't understand y nokia is putting there speaker at downward side same is the problem of nokia 5130 also. pls anyone suggest me how to solve this problem. rest i think both hv same music quality nokia 5130 and nokia 2700 in headphones
Here is the picture i took of nokia 2700 classic. The pictures of this mobile floating around the internet does not give the clear picture of it's looks.
well, the speed of internet depends on the internet connection you are subscribed too.. nokia 2700 does not have 3G so you will have to contend with 2.5G speeds.5130 is no different, it does not come with 3G. So speeds are going to be same on Nokia 2700 and Nokia 5130.
I was browsing yesterday using my Nokia 2700c with 2.5G(EDGE)connection. The speeds are pretty decent for a mobile phone.
well, it's been just 2 days since i bought this phone so can't really comment on the battery backup now. anyways for your information i charged the phone fully 2 days back. Made nearly 2 hours of call, clicked few photos and played videos and browsed internet. battery is not drained yet. So i would say under normal usage this should last 3 or 4 days easily.
I want that I should be able to browse internet on my mobile.
and the speed should be good. What parameter should we look in a mobile to say that on this mobile speed will be better than some other mobile.
Also please tell if I can browse internet on Nokia 2700. and how will be internet speed compared to Nokia 5130.
I have a broadband connection at home.
Hi , I bought this Mobile in VaibhaV Mobiles and Electronics , SD Road , SEC-BAD. The Pack Consists Mobile with A.R. Rahman Album, Idea Sim Card, 1 GB Memory Cord. It has USB port but does not USB Connector. I bought 2 GB Memory Card and Mobile Around 5000. I think it's Best Prize. Regards.
