I think nokia needs 2 improve da build quality of this phone.Its absolutly rubbish.
Nokia 5230 express music is about average..
But the best thing is its price..
It had aal The Application that Costly phone had.
Vishal, 14 Jan 2010So Whats the solution for this problem of "OutOfMemory"> In reply to Shanil @ 2010-01-03 04:30 from up1R
I think it’s a firmware glitch, all you gotta do is get a phone browser like OxyCube (the one I use) or MobiMB and browse the phone memory (C:) then go to the folder Hiddenfolder then Themeactive (C:\predefhiddenfolder\predefthemeactive) and you’ll find all of the themes you’ve applied since you last updated your phone delete'em all (it’s only a cache of the theme and here lays the problem once you change the theme the cache stays) and here you go, your problem is fixed!!
Next time use search.
Good phone at an affordable price. But the sound quality is not that good.

Seriously. I wont recommend this phone to my enemy. When i first say it, its features were too good to be true. I have about five friends using it and they complain about different faults. From the screen flickering to poor battery. The phone is not as strong as the other nokia models i have known. Dont know if its all xpress music phones that are nt durable.
gud mrng india....... 2day i bought this phone and i am surprised to c this type of features in such cheap price. this s really nice phone.
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2010Dude this is not an N-series set to play videos with bitrates of 750, 690 or evn 560kbps.
... moreYes but the reason what i am mentioning is that the processor of 5130 will support video bitrate of 800kbps and above, but the RAM is extremely less by which it is not able to load much video data while playback, even though the memory card access rate is 1.2mbps.. That is the major drawback..
Anyway thanx for the bitrate info, i will try that and get back to you.. My concern is that either the video or the audio clarity will decrease.. :(
I am using this phone last 5 Month. I am phasing hanging problem in some time. I enquired some of my friends who are using the same phone, all are phasing the same problem. So I think it is problem with the mobile.
Apart from that prize and features are good.
i bought this fone on 13 Jan, 10. Nice fone. Its was worth 5250 including i replaced 1gb memory card with a 2gb memory card.

AVINASH, 13 Jan 2010i buyed recently ,it's good,,,,,,,worth of buying it,,it's cheap of cost with all features ,,,... moreCan you confirm that is good phone, I am having problems with the samsumg gravity is my third phone, I do not recomend it to nobody to buy those phones, I just order the Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, I hope I get something good, tired of spending to much money and getting bad items.
As I have found out from from cousin, in addition to the bit rate, the format also plays a part. Use mp4 or 3gp format encoded with mpeg4 or xvid codec. Do not use h.264. Though it is supported, playback can be a pain as h.264 requires greater processing than the typical mp4 codecs.
hi buddies.. i just nw bought this mobile for this new yr. this s the superb mobile from nokia for cheaper cost.. the camera clarity s really good. nice battery backup.. free from software problem. i hope this s the best ever set currently in market. its even more than 5310 which cost 2k more than this:)
Vinayadatta (16), 13 Jan 2010Actually i am currently taking 2 videos to account, 1 is a 5min video which has 176x144 as res... moreDude this is not an N-series set to play videos with bitrates of 750, 690 or evn 560kbps.
Optimum video bitrate for best quality to performance is between 300-400kbps @ 320X240 resolution and that too with video encoded in mpeg4 or xvid formats. Audio format aac with bitrate 64-128kbps.
