Nokia 5130 express music is awesome.The battery lasts for around 24 hours even after I send around 50 to 70 msgs a day,talk for about 20 minutes per day and listen 4 to 5 hours of music daily.

A very easy to use phone with a good 2mp cam. The image clarity is good enough.The music clarity is awesome. The price is awesome.
Sound clarity and volume:9/10
Music related features and music files compatibility:10/10
Voice clarity during call:10/10
Dedicated music keys:7/10
Internet and software options and related features:8/10.

Hi, I have a question to all who are facing battery problem for this set. First of all the battery is 1020mah one which means it is strong one and should last for long time with normal usage.
The people facing problem with battery, can you confirm one thing.... ie the battery with the set was original nokia one or not. i mean you can be sure if u bought it from any nokia priority dealer. Kindly reply if anyone is sure about the genuineness of the battery and still facing problem.I want to buy this set but this drawback is barring me.

if you want to experience the amazing music player of this phone then don't use the headset that nokia provided. buy a more expensive and better headset. i use my father's blackberry headset on my nokia 5130 xpressmusic and the sound is just amazing. the nokia 5130 is really an amazing music device and it really is a steal for its price.

Needu, 30 Jun 2009can somebody tell me how 5130 has 288 hours of talking time.. for me it just lasts for 48 hour... moreHi,
I think you are talking about Standby Time and not talk time. You can not talk for 28 hours on any currently available phone,unless your charger is connected!!
Standby time is, when you do not make any usage of phone (not even receiving a message, no locking/unlocking, no movement from one place to another is powered on condition). Phones consume power even when it is off. Standby time of 288h means, if you keep your phone off, then with out recharging, you can still power on the phone after 280+ hours; If the phone is on, then even if you are not using it, it will be communicating with base station to know the status of connection and also to track whether you have moved into a different area (cell).
Stand-by Up to 288 h
Talk time Up to 6 h
Music play Up to 21 h
