TOO GOOD SMARTPHONE, VERY CAPABLE AND AN IPHONE "KILLER".
I purchased the 5530 a week back. Black/Red model. Used it vigorously and let me assure you that it is a "fantastic device", a charm to interact with AND definitely an IPhone KILLER! Here's my user opinion of it:
-Slim & trim
-Good Looking [head turner]
-Great memory [16 Gb]
-Quality shooting (pics & vids) [3.2 Mp cam]
-Lovely music [+good online store]
-Easy user interface
-Easy messaging [nice virtual QWERTY pad]
-Value-for-money [low priced]
-Vis-a-vis Nokia 5800, this is a better phone. More sleek & faster. And cheaper too.
-It doesn't have 3G & GPS. But I didn't feel the need of both since the time I used phones.
-It has Wi-Fi; and that suffices for internet.
-Due to no GPS & 3G, the Nokia 5530 got to lose weight & size. And that's what drew me to it.
-5530 is definitely better than Samsung-Star (Tocco lite).
Besides having all the bells & whistles (the specs. are available in every site, so technicalities avoided here & speaking of ground realities) it's a thriller phone, which is capable of doing everything that we need / look-for in today's mobile phones. It's thrills are in: a) Super-Slim body, b) deadly user interface, c) great shooting capability (both pics & vids), d) top-of-the-line music quality, e) No 3G (its's a boon, it made the phone slimmer & most of us do not need 3G, WiFi being enough) AND e) Amorous Price Tag.
Dear IPhonites, my Nokia 5530 beats you guys all the way thru (I do own an IPhone and am done with it). Why shell-out that dough? The 5530 is better (cheaper) having all it's functions and upscaled! (16Gb card, 3.2Mp camera, good stocked nokia music store that is cheaper than ITunes ...etc.
A nice factor of the 5530 is it's ease at managing thru the laptop. There is a cool USB Cable (in box) that connects it with the laptop and thru the OVI Suite (DvD in box) I have downloaded / uploaded all the files (pics, vids, music, contacts, messages and touched every part of the phone, arranged them, modified them without any qualms at all. And the Vids shot looked good too, contrary to what others say.
Overall, I am deeply satisfied with this lovely product. It's getting rave reviews too from my pals & colleagues. And my wife adores it. What more do we need?
So much so that I have put-up my Black IPhone 2G 8 Gb for sale / Gift, rather than getting the new 3G model. Mainly because I never needed 2G / 3G capability during my 1 yr. of usage (Wi-Fi being enough) and I do not wish to shell-out further (and huge) amount just to get more memory. Note, IPhone doesn't have secondary storage capability (Micro SD cards, like the 5530). And then IPhone's cam (2 Mp) is also well beaten by 5530 (3.2 Mp).
I say, "the 5530 cam is good enough". The pics are absolutely stunning. Though low light is a bit wanting, so does all camphones. And IPhone was poorer. The pics shot with my 5530 were flawless even when blown-out in my 42" LCD TV. Thus, I do not see the requirement of 5 MP & more cams in the other models. Vids were good too, for a phone shot. Better than lots of other smart / camphones. And then, for a dedicated movie shoot I do not see the usage of a phone. We would rather use our camcorders, no? I do so with my JVC HD-7 (another great FHD camcorder, whatever the websites say, it beats all. -No, I am not dwelling on it here further).
I find the 5530 a wholesome package, fully loaded smartphone, too good for its price tag. And well above the requirement of any other present models, including the other Nokias. It is beyond value-for-money. Actually, the Nokia pricing is a surprise, they could have easily priced it higher.
I have, as you see above, compared the 5530 basically with the IPhone. As that seemed to be the most "wanted phone" by everyone. I have also compared the 5530 on ground with Nokia 5800 (which is good, but bulkier and not as smart looking as the 5530). This phone [Nokia 5530] is "Classy". And again compared it with similar models of LG, Samsung, HTC and Palm, while doing my market research for an IPhone replacement. I found all the others were "very similar" to the Nokia 5530, Albeit at a "heftier price", which to my opinion, is a pure farce. If Nokia could do it, sure can others. That prompted me to assert that the other brands are "not selling right". Which is why, I definitely advocate the Nokia 5530. It is the Best in the market.
Thus, my friends, I say, "Go for it... now", before the 5530 is sold out of the market; or Nokia re-thinks on it, takes-it of the shelf and brings-out a modified 5530 with another name (model no.) & higher price tag.
I HOPE THE ENTHUSIASTS GET MY POINT.
***HAPPY 5530ing, Friends***
this phone does not support 'kinetic scrolling' as in iPhone and now incorporated in samsung star/lg cookie; right??
Stone Cold, 17 Sep 2009i have been using this phone since 14 September.. previously i had N82 and N78,well phone is g... moreHi Stone Cold, actually beside nokia XP 5530, I am still using N 82 and N 78 right now. I tested last night for the sounds and my comments are follow :
1) External speaker.
5530 have the same loud as N 82, but the quality is bit better. So I think 5530 is te first, N 82 second and N78 the third
2) Using ear phone
I tested by using Seinhaisser PX 100 and surprisely, N 82 is the best, second is N 78 and 5530 is the third. The sound at the maximum volume from 5530 is not loud like N 82 and N78... and the also the sound quality still better N82 and N78.
That's why I still want to keep my N82 and N78, because however they both are excellent in music and camera.
Well that's my opinion
Get opera mini 5 beta. Its released just now. Its mobile version of opera browser, very best, can open tabs, and is supported by java phones too. Go www.operamini.com
i have been using this phone since 14 September.. previously i had N82 and N78,well phone is good. sound quality is good build quality is good..but backcoer of phone is not solid build easily scratchable. Touch response is good enough. But Camera is crap yup.below average very poor video quality is also poor.
this is the only drawback i found .
I bought the phone in Jakarta, Indonesia...the speaker is really good, it has 4 speakers, and I quite satiffy with the quality.
It just launched for 3 days in jakarta, Indonesia

I have one of these and can tell you its a fantastic mobile in every way. Nokia have done good. Also when you record your own voice on voice recorder the quality is so crisp when played on the ace stereo speakers. Music quality great screen is so sharp and bright the screen resolution is so sharp you can't see each pixel. Pics from camera look sharp and clear on screen so does video. Menus are fast brisk easy to use and so is internet very easy to scroll. Build is great except battery cover which wobbles a little not much but does not fall off. Everything is good. Nokia have produced the best quality cheap touch screen phone beat the rest.
what is Upnp wifi technology ? is it useful for a home user ?
this phone does not have it but the nokia 5630 has it ....
and how the the wifi on this cell phone ?i mean browsing experience with wifi as good as itouch?
