yah ur right robin is just unlucky buyer to have a phone which is maby already sabotage.. hehehe,, too bad to hear but my couz owned this for almost 2 years and sometimes i swap my SE k800i to her bec of the Xpressmusic interface.. i love music and i'd never dreamed to become a photographer,, if u're lokkin for a digicam,, better buy digicam which is 7mp only cost 6000-7000,, N95 is just a piece of crap..
Erm if u like music and luv to listen music with ur phone..U should buy 5300..cuz the sound is da best..In term of camera 6300 would be better..It reli depends on which one u like..slim or slide..and many more..my advice go check out at ur local store and touch it urself..then u'll have better understanding of those two phone..
Hey robin, i been using 5300 for quite a while now..nth seems to go wrong..not even one..all works fine as new set..Plus wit nokia software updater i can update my phone firmware..it's stable and user-friendly..Great Phone..
Please don't listen to Robin. Another SE Walkman fans or just another who doesnt get most out of his phone. Robin, please if your phone aren't working as supposed to be, get a replacement from your Nokia retailer.
If you're planning to get a Nokia 5300, go get this phone. Sound quality from the headphones are just great like just an MP3 player. Stereo widening just works like 3D wonders. The loudspeaker also does a good job here, not loud as N81, N82, and 6233 but the quality is fine and pretty loud.
IMHO, Nokia 5300 is one of the stable S40 handsets ever made(Depending on regions).
World most failure set, if your some body planned to purchase, then i strictly advice, don't purchase Nokia 5300. I purchased, and i am suffering after 10 days of purchase,it has problems like RingTone, Loud Speaker, Display, Vibration, in all section you will face problem.i am just angry on those peoples, who developed this.Dont Purchase Nokia 5300. Its lost of money, mental disturbance, and loss of your valuable time.
plz advice me..
im planning to buy this phone
im thinking of 6300 and this 5300
wat do u thing is more satisfying
in terms of camera and music..???
5300 support 3gp but make sure your resolution is 240x320 which is the screen size bigger than tat it will not display juz audio. I try playing mp4 format in 5300 it can support it but not all time which i dont get it..
Im planning to buy one of these next month, its cost almost 9,000 pesos here in the philippines, or about $200. i just wanna know if its volume is fine? thx!
I realize something here, the cover screen is not tat strong is easily broken, if u put slightly force to it, it would juz crack..So be careful when u put in ur pocket or bag..But overall the phone is still great..NOKIA RULEzz
please can anybody tell me how to activate the speaker? it's not working anymore
About your phone charging slowly, It's maybe due to ur charger. 6hrs is abnormal...my friends also have quite the same problem. but theirs is only 2hrs+...By my opinion ur charger might hav been exchanged by ur dealer wit a fake or un-original one...(in my country is common coz they can profit from re-selling da original chargers) try getting an original N-Siries charger from authorised nokia dealers. I'm using one now n charging time at most is under 1 and half hour...(if da battery life is low) usually it onli takes me under an hour 2 charge...
A must have for any music lover! The sound quality from this phone exceeds even N73me, music edition phones tend to have sharper sounds but they cant produce lower sounds (such as bass) trough their speakers. When they r pumped up to max voloume at most times all u can hear r hisses..but not da 5300..but be careful if you adjusted da EQ way too high when da phone is at max voloume da speakers will vibrate so much dat it makes a bit of cracking sound on some songs!..lolz,but thats not a problem 4 me...balance da EQ n there should be no problem at all..da 5300 is relatively cheap too...i bought mine for RM500,2nd hand..(around US$125!) new sets in kch r currently priced arnd RM650+ (US$162+). The 1.3 Megapixel camera is nice, Not comparable to 6630, but it should do the job of capturing your special moments nicely! (as long as u keep ur hands still while taking photos!) The USB cable support on this phone also doubles it as a MicroSD card reader! Sliding mechanism is great too...Very smooth. But don't let looks deceive you. The sliding mechanism is very tough. I played with the phone sliding it up n down and gave it a bit of usual usage torture trough da day n it stayed da same....(don't do dis 2 ur 5300!)In my country u can buy cheap covers with lots of colours for the phone! blue,red,black,orange,purple,all white,all black & fluoroscent yellow...im using da fluoroscent yellow cover right now & it looks so sporty! lol...To sum all up,da 5300 is a cheap and great phone to get. Try one...you won't regret it!
i just craked the screen on my phone cant seem to get it repaired, what do i do, am really worried. i really love that phone
i find this phone the best. its speakers are amazing and wonderful.
very clear sound and awsome for being hiphop rapper.
i bring the phone everywere i go, its so cool. i feel cool wit tis phone. =D BUY IT
About the screen thing..Mine broken too when i accidently hit it with my drumstick when i was jamming..So, brought a cheap cover then start tearing off the screen and replace it on my original cover..(the screen that attach on the original cover is quite hard to remove cuz it is glue tight) so be careful..then juz paste the new screen on it..then it works fine..dont waste ur time finding original cover in Nokia Center cuz they dont hav one.
