ssbhat, 14 Aug 2009If you really like the Nokia's Active standby feature, Then you definitely go for 5220 XM othe... moreMr Bhat
5130 do not have active standby...but flight mode is there...it came with no flght mode at first but flight mode was added with firmware update and newer phns come with flight mode...the came quality is same for both 5220 and 5130...
But what sets 5130 apart is its awesome sound quality and cheap price...
If you really like the Nokia's Active standby feature, Then you definitely go for 5220 XM otherwise go for 5130. This model don't have active standby & flight mode feature.The camera is also too basic. So I strongly suggest you all to go for 5220 Xpress Music

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970This site would be damn boring if it only showed specs...

I used same song and 5130 sounded much better, you will know what i mean if your an audiophile...it was also accepted by my 5220 owner friend that 5130 has better quality sound."
Are you an audiophile? then why are you using a Philips/Ep-630 headphone shouldnt you be using something like Shure or Sennheiser?
They have the same sound quality man, dont use equalizers and the stereo widenning. Just you the flat equlizers. Same sound quality.
And regarding the music player theme, dont misled others man, you cant change the music player and radio theme in 5220 and 5130 unless you hack it using oxycube. if a user dosent know how to use it properly their phones will be bricked.
And regarding the flashlite player, how many good flash lite applications are there anyway? probably less than 10. Compare that to Java apps which is the defacto applications in S40 phones. 5220 in faster in java apps.
Your such a 5130 fanboy lol, post on the 5130 boards pls. Dont make it as if the 5130 is that much better because it's not, man. Both phones are almost the same but 5220 is just a notch better right now.
Wait for a 5130 firmware update then maybe it will surpass the 5220 then.
bluemoon, 06 Aug 2009pls anybody guide me which has better camera 5220 or 5130?iwant to buy one of them.pls tell m... morei Think you buy 5220 better.bcoz the shape very attractive my friends.about the camera-when you capture and display on the phone is bad,but you see your picture in the computer,its much clear then you think.

"5220's music player theme is better than 5130. You can barely see the album art in the 5130 player"
yes 5220 skins do show album arts better...but, do you know that you can change music player skins...im not talking abt changing to skins already given in the phone...
I have installed 5220 red, 5220 blue, 6600 slide, 3600 slide and 7210SN's music player skin on my 5130. you can do the same on 5220 too...So the small album art thing is not applicable for me as i use different skins than the default ones.
(you need to install a software on pc for you to access hidden themes and player skins folders of your phone)
"Themes look horrible in 5130, red and teal is just bad"
this is an idi0tic comment...themes can be changed at will...all XpressMusic skins are available for download from net.
"5220 is faster than 5130 both in UI and Java Apps"
Its not faster...they are pretty much same. Flash is faster and smoother in 5130. Also UI speed depends a lot on what theme you are using.
Guys if you don't have both 5130 and 5220 and just compare the other with reviews and other people's opinion, then you better just shut up because, what gives you the right to comment if you just rely on reviews on the internet and don't have the phone personally to make a unbiased comparison?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 19705130's camera is not better than 5220 and the sound quality is the same, use a decent headphone and listen to the same song, don't just look at a graph.
5220's music player theme is better than 5130. You can barely see the album art in the 5130 player.
Themes look horrible in 5130, red and teal is just bad.
5220 is faster than 5130 both in UI and Java Apps.
lastly, why are you such a 5130 fanboy? 5130 is a good phone but 5220 is a notch better. You just gotta accept that buddy.

i miss my 5220, 08 Aug 2009the 5130 sucks ijust got it because my 5220 got stolen by the stupid gardenboy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i ... moreok...now that is a very confusing post...hehe
you say 5130 sucks...and then you say it looks cool and has better music sound...
then how does it suck?? all other features are pretty much same. If you are simply missing 5220 then understandable.
I had 6300 before...got stolen and then bought 5130.
though 6300 is no match for 5130 in anything other than screen...i miss it a lot...it was the best looking phn nokia has made.
