modifii, 06 Nov 2008I dont understand why people here comparing this phone with 5320??? 5320 is totally different ... moreI compared this phone to 5320, coz it reminds me of it. I had 5320 with me, but i couldnt keep it for long due to its poor battery. And i hated it when it couldn't play songs loud. And the screen size, keypad are so small for a normal user.
So im thinking of buying this phone. No multitasking, no headache. Good loudspeaker & battery. Thats wat i need.
I dont understand why people here comparing this phone with 5320??? 5320 is totally different platform phone and costs twice than 5130.
5130 should be compared with 5220 as internals of these phones are same except some features are taken off from 5220 like Maps/NIPS/Dual Speakers/Music Lights. We can say that its a scale down version of 5220. Being in an entry level segment it is supposed to have some negative points. But comparing with SE W200 i think 5130 is better package.
Sekhar Chand, 05 Nov 20085130 seems to be a replacement for 5320 Xpress Music. Because both have almost same design, e... moreA common design doesn't mean a replacement. 5130 is less feature packed than 5320 and 5130 runs on S40 while 5320 runs on Symbian S60
5130 seems to be a replacement for 5320 Xpress Music.
Because both have almost same design, except for few features.
This phone is the best choice for music lovers.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Yeah, u r right sudhakar, but yet, some things are disappointing in 5320 still,
like the keypad, its very slippery to type & short for fingers & also not comfortable to type fast
the screen could have been bigger to enjoy the games, videos, wallpapers etc.
and the last thing is the loudspeaker is not at all impressive.
It may have many useful features, but it is not able to satisfy all buyers.
Ha ha the specs r very simler 2 n0kia 5310 but thicker n cheaper lo0king wel wont be m0re then Ģ70
I think this is the best phone at the best price. It can beat all other phones in the same price range.
And the features are amazing at that cost. I think this is better than the S60 express music phone- nokia 5320, which i have bought & sold it back. i was not satisfied with its battery backup.
i hope this would satisfy everyone's needs.
Im eagerly waiting for this phone to buy.

Wow! a new xpressmusic that seems awesome and cheap, almost the best phone of Nokia to features - price tag relation... it will be the next best seller...
Very similar to nokia 5310...
Design: 6 (Just nice and well done, good keypad with very cheapo plastic that can be confotable with time but at the start hard to press, good size of the display, big dedicated music buttons, good place for the spkears at the front, xpressmusic phones are almost to similar in design, cheapo construction but itīs plastic... so it will resist some falls)
Features: 9 (For the market is entering, low-mid range, for the amount of features, for the price is going to be sell it has impressive features and for having all the music specs we wait for a music phone.
It has a great resolution display, qvga is nice, 256k colors may be improved but to get a good price you have to sacrifice com things, still good.
It itīs a quad band gsm phone, almost all the world is covered, it has edge too..
Connectivity is covered with usb, bluetooth with A2dp that is incredible to see in this range for a music phone.
Camera is decent with 2mp in-built, lacks viedo recording, flash and autofocus but is a music phone people.
No internal memory but external memory to 8gb itīs enough and you get a 1gb memory card with the phone, AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
So, itīs not a 10 because it lacks some things but the important features are there)
Performance: 5 (Standard battery life.. for the price something must be wrong and i think it will be the battery life, the performance of the whole phone still colud be well,but is something yet to see)
Nokia is immproving music phones in the mid range, they are far better than Motorola and very close to Sony Ericsson, Samsung has just started this battle in the music phone market..
A little comparison between Nokia 5130 and 5310:
Nokia 5130 over 5310:
- Lower price, which is very important.
- Almost same specs in music features.
- Itīs quad band gsm phone. (5310 is only tri band)
- 2 spkears at the front of the phone. (5310 doesnīt have this)
Nokia 5310 over 5130:
- Better color and size display.(Nokia 5310 has a 16m color screen over the 256k of the 5130 and 5310 has a little bigger display, difference is only 0.1 inches)
- Better quality construction of the phone.
- Camera can record video in qcif. (5130 doesnīt record video)
- Some extra aplication like:
. Nokia sensor
. Nokia mobile search
. World Clock II
. Converter II
I love the two phones, 5130 and 5310 are great music phones.. i love them...i want to buy the two of them...jeje..
sorry to being so extended..:) Chau!
this will definately be a seller..... decent features at a decent price-point, everyone will be having this baby.... we've seen it all before, 5300, 5310, 6300, and many more.....
Wow. Nokia. Candy bar. Quad band. 3.5mm jack. Less than $150 USD. A2DP. This is exactly the phone I have been looking for. How soon can I buy it here in the US?
