The difference is that 5310 is not tuned as perfectly as the latest lineup of phones by nokia. But with 5233, it is not the case. It has got one of the best frequency response readings even beating the mighty 5800. Yes I agree that it can sound a bit dull with a flat EQ unlike other walkmans. But that is exactly the point. An unequalized untouched mp3 audio sounds dull and lacks depth. With walkman, everything sounds good right out of the box. But with the proper eq settings, the audio can be manipulated to our liking. The music player has 8 band equalizer as opposed to 5 or 6 which is common in most phones.
In addition, the audio quality can be further improved by the use of 3rd party mp3 players like Power mp3.

I'm using Nokia 5233 from last 3 months. The phone's damn good the camera quality, the user interface n the most imp the gprs is excellent. The only drawback is poor external speaker, n even it hangs some-times (only when we open 3 or above application at once). Even it got a very poor earphones from company but we can buy good one from market a lot of varity is available in 3.5mm jack. So over all the phone's pretty good it's value for money phn.

With audio quality, what I actually meant is audiophile like quality. It is quite different from the focus of walkman phones as only a very few can claim that title. I agree that walkman phones are much more refined for asual users. But it ain't the cleanest sounding phones out there. What 5233 and it's sibling 5230 has is one of the cleanest audio outputs just like what you get in an ipod or iphone. But the advantage here is you also get custom eq preset options so that the audio output can be customised to individual liking. The difference here is that 5233 is programmed to give you the cleanest audio out comparable to audiophile quality while walkmans are refined for casual listeners.
And 5233 also uses the state of the art DAC33 audio chipset which is also used in all the xpress music phone lineup. What this results is that 5233 can produce the deepest bass or the highest treble without distorting or crackling the earphones. it also provides superior signal to noise ratio so that you don't get that hiss sound you usually get on low end mp3 players and low end music phones.
But in order to truly appreciate the difference in qualities, you should test it using good acoustically tuned earphones like the one I am using. You cannot judge quality using HPM-64 as it is only tuned to reproduce bass better. A earphone like the philips she9800 can recreate a balanced audio accross the entire audible range. So it is better at reproducing audio accurately and even the slightest of differences in quality can be felt....
Again when it comes to audio, it is purely subjective. What sounds good to you might not always sound good to me. So if you look to scientific data for a proper benchmark, the only walkman that seem to come close in terms of audiophile like audio quality is the super expensive w995.

SidewindeR, 19 Jul 2010Don't you ever get tired of this???? Come on tell me how good is your outdated w810 compare... moreTry another research and you will know the truth that the sounds of Sony Ericsson Walkman Phone is better than your Nokia 5233. I have both brands. (SE W200 low end and W660 lower mid end) "Mega Bass" the best. Nokia 5233 is presentably good though with a lower price. Large screen nice video. Nokia 5233 is far better than samsung S3650 corby but not for LG KM555e. I think I'm going to buy Nokia 5233 coz it is fantastically beautiful. God Bless!
