Good n Robust. Keypad is like some Motorola phones...a bit hard to press but one becomes habituated. Battery life is excellent. Compared to others phones of some brands within similar price slab this set receives signal most efficiently...a great relief to users who stay at or move within low-signal areas. I've compared it to LG KG195,KG110,C2500, Samsung J210,M120, Motorola C156,L7i,C168,C113, Nokia 1600,2310,1108,2630,2626 etc. Someone wrote about speaker volume control when calling or listening radio... This can be done by pushing Rt or Lt of central button. All other features are satisfactory. Spread-sheet is unique.

I have seen in samsung phone,if u hold the phone th... moreactually its depend on the frequency that you set to the phone and the coverage for that area. my phone is clear and no need to hold the phone. i also try the radio by wearing the headphone on my bike. along my way to my office for about 20 km, the radio is clear.

How is the FM clarity of this phone.
I have seen in samsung phone,if u hold the phone then FM becomes clear,and if u keep it down then it becomes unclear ?
Does the same problem exists in this phone ?
The Nokia 5030 is easy to work,and its good to call.
Great radio:D Great games:D
this phone iz very good + design is awesome.............................................................................i love diz phone
the phone is OK, depending on how you used it. i bought this phone a few week ago and i found out:
1) the battery is excellent.talk time and standby is long
2) built in antenna is perfect idea
3)the design for this phone is attraction.
1) the keypad is so hard (worst thing). its good for construction worker
2) the speaker for radio and phone is lousy. can hear but cannot pick up/ understand what it want to say, especially in a noisy place.
3)the wallpaper is not variety
4)cannot control the volume of radio and calling.
5)panchangam is not useful
6) no bluetooth
7)mp3?? is it functioning
note:- you'll will familiar to the keypad after long time using it.
its waste to buy this cell..once u buy it u cant change the sim..its ssssoooooooo damn tough to open the back cover..its too hard..
what else u expect from Rs 2000 phone,
its only flaw is its kepad,
LG similar phone doesnot have same sound quality
those who like to send sms donot worry download free demo software from internet and u can send sms via your qwerty PC keyboard
my dream phone,actually!
but..OVERSIZE and OVERWEIGHT !!!
old tech inside!
now,nokia think we are ugly people,leave nokia!
AKHTAR, 17 Nov 2009i just want to know what is that clock sign blinking next to battery sign and how can i remove... moreits nothing but the alarm is active, go to menu, extras, alarms, then s/w th alarm ..........:)
nice fm radio phone, the back cover is a bit hard to open which make it intact if it should drop. the only cons is you can not reduce/increase the radio volume.
its very difficult to use for easy messaging due to keypad...nokia should think for it overall its nice but not useable for sms purpose
shehroz, 01 Dec 2009what a battery life, this time nokia Rocks!!!my girlfriend loves the expressradio that i newly bought... nokia rules....
