Yeah, like using it more will shrink stand by time considerably.
Isn't stand by time derived from certain metrics of phone usage like no. of hours of calls and listening to music, frequency of use of camera feature, etc.
Stand by time is a good benchmark. If the updated Symbian is more efficient but included battery is less capable, then standby time could be approximately equal to older Symbian with a little more capable battery. Overall, no increase in phone's battery life.
Nokia's aiming on efficiency in FP2. You should hopefully see some good result in battery usage. And standby time is not everything. The real thing here is actual usage.
I like its design and features, which will be balanced with its price.
250 hours standby is good, satisfactory enough. But my standard is 300 hours. Nokia should've raised battery life standards for this one because it's a very promising handset, most specially because it belongs to the XpressMusic family.
Anyways, many potential owners will still find this phone very, very attractive.
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2008and do you really believe that music playback lasts 24 h ????? its like all other nokia phones... morewhen it says 'upto x hours playback' it means thats the longest it will play for if you have it on the lowest volume and playing the simplest song that takes least battery to play... you just have to consider this when looking at the specification.
Its perfect for me, its just like my 6120classic, with better sound quality, 3.5mm jack, better buttons, fp2, and the navigation button isn't chrome painted like 6120, which peels off..those with 6120classic should consider upgrading to this phone
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2008and do you really believe that music playback lasts 24 h ????? its like all other nokia phones... moreMaybe your Nokia phone is a defect/C class product. I never had problems with Nokias before.
Odietz, 22 Jun 200824 hours music playback time is very poor? You don't have a common sense, do you?and do you really believe that music playback lasts 24 h ????? its like all other nokia phones which lasts 1 h talktime. believe me coz i have had a terrible experience with nokia phones, but i wont have it anymore because now i use a SE w760 :p
Odietz, 22 Jun 200824 hours music playback time is very poor? You don't have a common sense, do you?well, providing the fact that most of us charge our mobiles once daily, i think its good enough.
Is this unit already available in the Philippines? How much does it cost? Thanks for the help guys.
Thanks viperkid for the link to the review. This is exactly the type of phone I need. The only drawback I think for now would be its keypad. But I can't really tell for sure if I won't like it since I haven't actually held one yet...
Can't wait for this. I've been meaning to buy a new phone to replace my ancient 6600. lol
stefan, 14 Jun 2008Very poor battery for a music phone24 hours music playback time is very poor?
You don't have a common sense, do you?
Whenever a New XpressMusic phone comes along, all hell breaks loose, from SE owners admiring the W-series, to Nokia owners indicating how it lacks this-or-that feature.
All are world-class companies, with world-class reputation, providing us with world-class technology - on most occasions atleast : ) -
I always thought of Nokia as brilliant marketers, supported by a massive line-up of products that appeals to every budget, every need, every person.
This 5320 XM is the perfect example, having earned its XM labeling.
Perfect Sound Quality, a Boost in playback hours, 3.5 mm audio jack - still looks like the 5310XM so far - , I am a person that wants all that, but... I am a sucker for symbian, so no 5310 for me, its 5320 that would hit the jackpot. For all that, and its, dedicated gaming keys, dedicated music keys, navi-wheel.. Faster operation than a Java based mobile, nice design...
so its basically a smartphone, that focuses on Music and Games. If thats what I need then I will get exactly that, without having to pay for features I wont use.
do I want more along with whats mentioned above? Wi-Fi, GPS, High-Resolution Cameras... Then I will pay more, for an N-series device ...
I just love the way Nokia categorized their handsets, making sure that every single one of the -almost-, is at the right price, for the right features for the right person.
Cant wait to try the N96 : )
hey guys i have read dis fone specification...............dis is reallll gonna rock d market wid it's outstanding features............

RBa, 17 Jun 2008Once again, thank you dude.. Actually I live in Cebu.. Can I ask you a favor?? Uhmmm... If pos... moreof course, i'll post it here as soon as i've known dat 5320XM is already available here in my area. i'll even include d initial price release. u r welcome kabayan =)
Titi, 20 Jun 2008Hello! I have heard that this model and the 5310 can keep 500 sms or more, is it true?yup. actually, most of S60 phones from Nokia can store more than a thousand messages
I have heard that this model and the 5310 can keep 500 sms or more, is it true?
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2008like every other time clearley no speakers visible anywhere on this handset not at bottom as m... mored speakers r located at d bottom right side
d button on top right (wd d XpressMusic caption below it) of d screen is d own key n is also used for d 'say n play feature' if u press n hold it down. of course, d one on d top left of d screen is d front cam for video calling
btw, i after checking d audio tests done by M-R, from wat i understand, 5320XM is a tiny bit better at 'frequency response'
i got the 5310 5 munths ago i am think of geting this phone next year (only if it had a 3.2mp cam)
viperkid, 15 Jun 2008sure, no prob =) im pretty sure dat was just a typo error. 5320XM should b available, latest S... moreOnce again, thank you dude.. Actually I live in Cebu.. Can I ask you a favor?? Uhmmm... If possible when the 5320XM is already available there in Manila, could you please inform me by posting it here? Please.. Because usually, phones are released earlier there in Manila than in Cebu. Thank you once again Viperkid!
