I agree this phone is overpriced a lot, but just wait a few weeks because there's a serious price war coming which is very good news for us.
Sony Ericsson is going to dump the w880 real real cheap before Christmas. They want to get rid of all stocks before marketing it's replacement, the w890. Their plan is to dump w880 at a much lower price than the 5310! So just use your brain and a little patience and you'll see the 5310 price falling down sweetly. ;)
go buy this phone people i bought it a couple of days ago and it is great. camera is only 3 mega pixle but is really good quality and the xpress music is fantastic!! i sawped my samsung u600 for this phone and am so glad there is no comparison the u600 is rubish.
w910i and w300i is the most bad se Wphone. i mean the sound quality (if vol set to max the sound do distorsion). i've test them. nokia say that this phone better sound quality than w910i i think that's right but, this phone will give up if compare with w800i or w900i.haha..
i think if nokia "give" contrast setting on s40 platform the battery of s40 phone will life longer.
try to imagine, this phone lcd 16M without contrast setting compare with this phone with contrast setting(set low contrast). i think second one will be winner. music phone no need best TFT colour.
i hope nokia hear it so they'll fix it.
anyway this phone is too expensive. without os, without 3G. i rather buy SE Wphone or moto ROKR phone.
i have bought this phone but iam not happy nokia says that battery last good but the battery is very poor .be carefull
5310XM has better sound quality, better than most walkamn phones, & that's according to Mobile-Review! =)
Hey n0kia n 5310 fanz. Can ne1 tell me about sms memory? and CAN i save sms in memory card? I wil b thankfull to y0u..
tone, i know u r dissapointed as i'm in 6300, but believe me u can play music whole day and u wouldn't have to recharge for next day! i've tried it!
5310 will not dissapoint u at all!
camera is allright, but then this is a music phone, right?
I have been using this phone for say, 1 week now and there is no complaint to the battery - I am more of a business user with very heavy calling during the day and almost NIL music & FM usage - i guess that is where the battery compensates. The interface is Java, exactly like a Nokia 6300 or 6233 and sometimes a hook up to use as compared to a Symbian Phone. The slimness of the phone is actually commendable for being a handy and easily accessible phone. It's competitevly priced just a bar above the Nokia 6300 and I hear rumours of there being a Steel look being available in the same. Currently, the market has Red & Blue options which look similar to the 5300 twins series. Camera & Picture quality is pathetic but I think Nokia was not targetting that section of users which use more Camera Related features - instead they probably are looking at the "On-the-move" sort of people which like music & FM to pass time. Logically, if you recall the Nokia 5210 which is predecessor to this phone (the first phone with Rhythmic Backlight feature), this model carries on the legacy and probably come out with accessories like Strap On bands for the arms, wrist - for joggers etc.
FYI: in a review of SE W910i in mobile-review.com (in Russian, English translation coming soon) they say the sound quality of Nokia 5310 is better than that of w910i, which is double as expensive and is the latest top line from SE.
so actually how long is the battery life with moderate usage (15sms 10 min talking and an hour of music a day)?is it much better then nokia 6300??
shariyar, u shouldn't be upset, as this phone has an absolutely fantastic music player and battery life is long enough, even for ones very critical reviewers.
guess what, u can use 4 gb memory card if u think that 2gb memory card isn't enough, which comes with phone!
u only will be dissapointed if u r expecting a 3+ mp camera on this phone!
Hi all . I wanted to bye nokia 5310. But when i saw the opinion of user of this model . I felt upset. I changed my opinion to bye this
Iam also Nokia lover and understand now nokia is going to new trends and that is slim and sleek sets its really appriciating but in other habd they are really screwing their product day by day,like ,no doubt they are introducing many new models but perfomance and metirial quailty is doing worst. I request to Nokia that don't let us go.
....it is very good and the main thing is that it is very slim.the music is awesome...
i just bought it from my mates shop he said if you dont like the nokia 5310 just return in 2 days i liked everything but the camera is so bad not even in the old nokia like 6230 the camera is like this i returned it better to use nokia 6300
well the "INCONVENIENT TRUTH" is that majority of nokia's phones which come with 2mp camera really do not perform well, they seem to use camera hardware,sensor which are seriously not producing good quality pix, its jus phones from Nseries and those one-of-kind 3mp phones which perform well in the category of camera phones....which is why its not recommended to get a 2mp camera phone in nokia, unles you dont mind the quality of the pix- and seriously only SE could produce phones with 2mp camera hardware which reaally produces good outstanding pictures, for eg: k750.w800.w700.w900.w810.w850.k550. this are 2mp phones which really produce worthy pictures...but recently there are also phones by SE which only cud produce gd clarity but failing to deliver pictre details..like k530.k610.s500.w580..... hmm---jus go for the best---go for those upcoming 3mp phones which are realy gd...
Can anyone post a picture taken with this phone, so I can check how bad the camera is?
