Nevin Joseph, 28 Sep 2009I agree... mobile phone loud speakers are not ment for listening to music... then what's da po... moreJoseph Nevin, avid LG 200 fan, let me predict your LG200 vs Nokia 5130 face off. LG 200 of course will win in your comparo. It is widely acknowledged that Apple's iPod is the best music player around. GSM Arena after it's INSTRUMENTED and SCIENTIFICALLY CONDUCTED audio test concluded that nokia 5130 is at par with Apple's iPod, who are you to declare that your LG GM200 is better than the 5130? I will only believe in GSM Arena's tests and not any of your HOMEMADE TESTS.

OK i agree with you on ipods and iphones but, SE walkmans...the present ones are good try to stay as close to original sound as possible. Most of the older models with the mega bass feature had boosted bass and treble which made them deviate from original sound. Anyways its nice to see that they have rectified that in newer models like W995.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2009It do not have the mega bass preset..for equalizer..yes earphones are not good as well hey guys is this phone better than nokia 5220...???
plz b honest.. i hv to buy any of these two..

"Finally i brought 5130 XM" after a 30 days confusion with a lot of comparisons and daily review readings.
i thank gsmarena, thinkdigit and more than 13 sites for helping me in my decision making. Oh! boy it was tough to decide but finally brought SILVER colour it is far better and decent looking than those toy colours RED and BLUE even real handset look dummy LOL.
well camera and video recorder is good if u use properly wat i mean is light conditions and phone setting before taking pic or video and when transfered to PC u will be surprised to see the quality.
Music is "do i have to say" common it is Xpressmusic dedicated to Music!! ok it is Excellent. yes just like sony walkman phones and xerox of i-phone g/gs.
well some say GM 200 is better, here u have to understand that 5130 keeps its audio quality to ORIGINAL -thats what Sony, i-phons and i-pods do.
Dolby is a sound modification technique which distribute the audio signals to different channels and only effective in 5.1 or above speakers configurations. In mobile phone or even in 2.1 u only feel hall like sound which has improper echo and lack rest of channels. it'll be much better if they give SRS technology in place of DOLBY.
5130 OS is fast and responsive with good layout, i still has to explore more. "VOICE CLARITY" feature really improve sound also in handsfree.
well what disappointed me is battery backup but if u use it like ordinary phone means no camera,video,music,fm and games then it's ok.
Earphone is of very,very low quality (made in china that's why? lol) no serious nokia should think that they r selling a music dedicated phone, charge few bugs more bt give a good quality earphone well thank god that phone has 3.5 mm jack so u can buy good one -- wait a second "thats why it is of poor quality just for formality (how u feel about 'no headphone with phone') even nokia want's u to purchase good one.
original headphone do not give u walkman phone or iphone quality. Radio reception is also bad (it is a headphone fault not phone) u not even able to scan channels. Replace it with new one and feel the magic high quality audio and Radio sound, even catch all the stations.
"Stereo widening" feature is also good bt equilizers feel non effective wid it,certain song also not support it properly and sound dull, largely support it and u get DOLBY substitute. hahaha
5130 is really a well balanced phone and dont forget it's new sony and apple rival.
Just want to ask to all the previous user of this phone. Based on your experience in using this phone, what are the goodside and downside of the unit (features and technical)? I can't still decide if I'm going to buy this unit or not. Hope you might help me to decide if I'll buy this unit or not. Thank.^_^
activating GPRS is not supported for this CP model... what should i do?
I have some probem with my h/s .Some Themes(having 352kb) are not working in my h/s. when applying the theme IT showing "unable to open theme corrupted". Any idea to overcome this situvation.Ibuy this h/s abt 3 months ago
oh really it s a bad phone because its ringtone and wallpaper are automaticaly changing to default within regular intervals.i checked it several phones.
Too bad to nokia
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2009Mobile phone loud speakers are not for hearing music, yeah you can connect to any big speaker ... moreI agree... mobile phone loud speakers are not ment for listening to music... then what's da point in having a loud speaker in the first place? Everybody loves to flaunt their new rings or their fav songs with their friends. if that is the case, then GM200 can deliver good audio without any cracking or distortion. Nobody's gonna complain if their phone has a kickass sound that everyone can listen to. What about radio.. plz don't tell me you like enjoying you music through earphones only... If mobile loudspeakers can deliver great sounds, everyone's gonna take it and what good is a loudspeaker if we are not listening to some good old music. I took this phone solely because of its speakers and woofer.
i'll just be giving tips on this phone..think you should minimize on downloading files[invluding music,themes,wallpapers,etc]. for you to avoid such problem like slow down. and hang up. cause it cannot keep up if your a techi person. ^__^
Hi, please people share your experiences and opinions about the signal strength in the Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, thanks.

Nevin Joseph, 28 Sep 2009Ok.... Ok.... tomorrow I'll get ma friend's 5130 and conduct a thorough comparison. Same songs... moreBut you should admit that the loud speaker is not upto the level of GM200.

Same songs, same earphones and same listening conditions. I'll be honest with you... And let's make this a healthy and non violent competition.... The reason might be last time i only had a chance to listen to regional songs in his 5130. But you should admit that the loud speaker is not upto the level of GM200.
P.S. I think I deserve a million from LG for defending their phone against Nokia. I sure hope they would pay me for this.
