but the difference is 5130 cam is really poor, cant even stand in comparisi... moreohh and i almost forgot to mention these things
SMS storage capacity of 5130 is anywhere between 20,000 and 35,000 depending on how much free space you have in phn memory(yes it tens of thousands and not in thousands, hehe)
how much SMS can your s3500 store...around 500
yes 5130 can store 40-70 times more SMS than s3500.
There are also around...
2000+ 3rd party softwares
available for free download for 5130 form various sites...
NOW Beat that buddy...

basically its not a camera phn...and yes video recording is bad...but still pics are really good as any other 2MP cam...and the low light image quality is better than that of s3500.
"hahahahaha read comments here n u'll realize 5130 hangs a lot even only with 2 gb card, 16gb n never lags wata joke, s3500 never hangs n has a very high speed"
you havent read anything properly..most of the ppl having hangs are using older firmwares..the newer firmware 6.65 doesnt have any hangs...and who told you S3500 do not hang.....i have read many comments in its forums saying it hangs a lot. and more feathers are added with firmware updates..does samsung provide updates for its phns???
"hes doesnt talkin about any 3rd party crappy software s3500 has theme creator inbuild in it."
all the crappy samsung theme creator does is put a new wallpaper and change color of menus....
the nokia theme creators allows you to change hundreds of options of a theme or create a theme with hundreds of customizable options...wallpaper, background, ringtones, screensaver, music player skins menu selection bars, etc..every single detail that you see can be customized...and BTW its not a 3rd party software...its released by nokia.
nxt you see a S40 or S60 phn compare the themes with that of samsung and see the difference instead of writing crap.
"u must be a uncle who thinks a boring bar phone is stylish coz many youngesters prefer a premuim metallic slide phone (s3500)"
ohh really?? then why aren't too many youngsters buying s3500..all the positive comments in the s3500 forum are writen by a single guy under different names...hehe shows how many ppl prefers it LOLz...
"the sound produced by 5130 is crisp and clear at the lowest volume,..but as it arisen (volume increase) it gets blur(not enough bass and treble)"
you didnt even realize that that comment was abt loudspeaker...it was probably abt playing heavy metal songs...samsung wont have any such problem as the loudspeaker has very low volume...hehe
"s3500 music player is shockingly loud n clear"
and what do u think abt other phns music player??? never heard anything other than crappy samsung have you? XpressMusics and walkmans are lightyears ahead of any samsung phns music player...
"slide phone are more likely to break,,,hahahahha wat a logic...lol"
try dropping it a few times and watch...if it falls in the wrong way the slide mechanism will be damaged...now dont say samsung slide phn are different..they are all the same...the slide will become shaky and loose with usage even with the utmost care. and why is s3310 a similarly priced bar phn with same features and a smaller screen is more popular and selling in more numbers than s3500???
"n hey u ignored 2.2 inch screen...why?????...lol"
frankly thats the only positive s3500 have over 5130 it it can be called as a positive...BTW the the sunlight legibility of s3500 screen is much worse than that of 5130....
and abt the 16M colors thing...can you notice any difference between the display quality of a 256K TFT and 16M TFT screen...the answer is not too much difference...its the same reason why SE sticks to the 256K screen even for its high end phns like SE W995.
BTW since 5130 has more pixels in small the display will look sharper and clearer in case of 5130...teh dot pitch of 5130 is very small...you can hardly see the individual pixels...the same cannot be said abt s3500.

S3500 150,000+ hits 700+ votes with results 6.9/6.6/6.6 while the 5130XM has more than 1,000,000 (A million that's right it's 10 times more ineresting than the S3500) hits and 7500+ votes with far better results 7.5/7.4/7.5.
Do you think you're better than the 7500+ reviewer?
I think the consumer has spoken his words, full stop.
So the 5130 is basically better than the S3500 in every aspect (Design, Features, Performance), I love GSMARENA.
Buy this one you won't regret it, thanks reviewers.

but the difference is 5130 cam is really poor, cant even stand in comparision to s3500 cam
5130 video camera comes with the resolution of 176x144 by far the worse i've ever encountered despite of the 2 megapixel camera which suppose to give double the resolution of the current one,
but s3500 video cam resolution is almost double the 5130's that is....320*240
s3500 does have fm recording which 5130 doesnt have.
