Working in aphone shop i am ver familiar with this phone, however we have had a lot returned with faulty speakers, microphone, screen etc. They dont seem to be very reliable snd the battery life is very poor. All in all i would rate this phone 4/10.
it is the best fone ever....i have it from 2 months and it totally roksss....it looks amazin in both colours red and blak...the sound quality is superb and it supports a 2 gb card which i am usin rite now....negativa points are you cannot increase or decrease the brightness...the button for the camera is kind of hard but its ok...it has a 3.5 mm jack so u cannot use all earphones only some...the graphics are really nice and the 1.4 megapixel camera is really good for taking pictures...the sliding is also very smooth....it is a must buy..but the video is not so clear...and it has got many good music options like the equalizer and the stereo widening option..the biggest problem is that while recieving and file via bluetooth the file straight away goes into the fone memory which is 5 mb and 1.5 mb is already used for the pre-loaded sounds and games and pictures....so we cannot recieve a file through bluetooth that is more than 3.5 mb but overall this is an amazin fone and i recommend it for all

to popoliee: you can download lots of nokia java games at www.mobile9.com and www.zedge.net but in zedge.net you need to register to download themes, games, etc. and you only have 20 credits per day to download unlike at mobile9.com you dont have to register and you have unlimited credits to download. lots of cool stuff at mobile9.com and really recommend that site. hope i can help.
Its Casing Is Replaceable its available in karachi and price is in between 200 to 300. Transpernt Cover Also Available
to new buyer: yup it supports 1GB, i can prove it because im using it right now hehe! lol! I think it also supports 2GB because at nokia.com it says that it supports up to 1,500 songs using a 2GB card.
Just make sure the card is microSD.
Can anyone tell me if the Nokia 5300 supports 1gb card or 2gb???
Or just the Express Music for Tmobile support that card?
I just got this phone (in lilac) as a graduation gift from my boyfriend...it is, hands down, the BEST phone that I have ever had! I absolutely love it. Not only is it a music player, but you can also add pictures and videos right from your computer. And, you can listen to the radio. The best part about this phone for me is the fact that I can record songs and use them as ringtones (or use the songs that I uploaded from my computer)! This is great b/c I can change the ringtones whenever I want and it's FREE. Doesn't get much better than that! *Sigh* I think I'm in love...
The bad things? I wish it came in hot pink...and the back cover is hard to get on and off.
to neil: i downloaded it at www.mobile9.com, its in the nokia 5300 themes, click the featured themes i think the name is iphone hybrid like that. just post your reply if you found it.
hmm...was using w800i before this and i think it sounds better....the camera is.... oh well.........probably isn't a very good buy XD
and maybe a little too bulky..
This phone is wicked for Music playing -so loud. Its great for texting and general use - however the camera isn't gr8 - but im not bothered about that.
One thing though - if you drop the phone - it may brake. I did, now i have no backlight working at all, cant see/read texts, and the navigation/d pad wears and becomes non-responsive after alot of use. Just a warning to those think9ing of buying - be careful - dont drop it.
