Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i'm perfectly knows why is it cheaper.
1. it misses 3g and gps. but if you live in a place which you perfectly know you don't need gps. there is no 3g in moscow. and all of them 5530, 5800 and n97 misses 4g. so i don't care on that point as well.
that's all. two useless features made it cheaper for $100 rubles. but it's got a lot of pluses, all for free due to dumping.
i wouldn't give it 10/10/10. my rating was 5/8/8, comparing to 8/8/5 of se g900 and 4/7/8 of 5800.
7 in features for 5800 because its poor usability in lists with no kinetic scrolling. and 4 in design due to larger completely inconsistent forms.
iphone is still poor smartphone due to limited sdk and development tools.
mediterranean, 15 Aug 2009i am very disappointed
i am not gitting this phone it is just asmaller 3gless 5800
i was exp... moreWhat are you replacing really? I thought it was the "much faster and user friendly and better loking lg cookie" you had, instead of the normal one, sold to us common mortals.
Could it be I was wrong, and the "much faster and user friendly and better loking lg cookie" you mentioned was actually the normal one, and you were stoned at the time?
Didn't they teach you at school that drugs are bad for your health?
i am very disappointed
i am not gitting this phone it is just asmaller 3gless 5800
i was expicting more really
but i am stell replacing my lg cookie
so what do u suggest
coth, 14 Aug 2009No, it's very good phone. For its price - it's fast, it's very usable, it's got all symbian fu... moreWell I don't even care about the other phones but you do realize it's cheaper than the 5800 for a reason, right?
(Don't know how I forgot that, lol)

Shavi, 14 Aug 2009Ppl who really love this phone shud 1) keep voting 10 on 10 on every department(i.e Design,... moreNot to spoil your fun or anything, but people should vote on what they feel the phone is worth, and even though it's quite good for what it costs, you and I both know it's not worthy of a 10/10/10. Not even the 5800 or the N97 for that matter.
mani, 14 Aug 20095530 is better than 5800 because it has a
great processor than 434an it has a nice shape tha... moreVery good. You've done quite a lot of research it seems!
Though I'd like to point out the tiny small little fact you forgot to research...
The 5800 has (quite some time ago) gotten an update so it's proc is (and has been for quite some time) at 434Mhz.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970No, it's very good phone. For its price - it's fast, it's very usable, it's got all symbian functionality, it's got very sharp display and it's very small. It's better than 5800 XM and it's hell a lot better than SE G700 and G900.
Finishing my review on this phone i'll add few unpostprocessed untouchet files taken on default camera settings.
autofocus (slow and oftenly mistaken)
shots taken from car on 70+ kmph speed
for those who is looking for good themes there is one very good producer. se7en red and mars themes perfectly fits on black/red 5530
if you are looking for web browser you should know - there is no any good for s60 atm.
- s60 browser is not really well comfortable
- digia @web is 3rd party interface for s60 browser, somewhere better than s60 browser, somewhere worse.
- ucweb is buggy
- opera mini is unstable
but opera mobile, which is very very good is in development.
for russians i would recommend spb weather. yes, there is free s60v5 version and it is the best weather program for s60, but with russian cities only. otherwise you can go with handy weather or accuweather. second is free but laggy a little bit.
skype true voip client. fring has nearly twice smaller bitrate than nimbuzz. therefore voice quality is worse, but still good. so if you want to save money and/or bandwidth on 3g/wi-fi you have to go with fring.
google maps is good, but ui font size is very small. if you are from russia you have to go with yandex maps. it has better interface, better traffic reports, works faster and you can predownload a complete cache for many cities via pc.
x-plore is very functional, but it's not a friend with touch screen, so at the time you don't need x-plore functionality you can use y-browser.
xpress music player is very disappointing. no current queue feature, no flac support, poor interface etc. for flac support and for songs without tags you can use folder play. in other way power mp3 is good. the only things you can't use them as default system music program. at least at the moment. there are also some good programs like jukebox (bad with touch) or coreplayer
isilo and zxreader - both are good.
office programs. officesuite and quickoffice are two main. both support office 2007 file types.
msn messenger is quite bad, full of ads. as msn isn't a highly functional protocol you can just use fring or nimbuzz from above.
qip pad does not support s60v5 atm. development is very slow. don't know how well fit boyan icq. so mainly there are two - jimm (aspro or d[i]chat) on java and mail.ru mobile agent.
most of well known jabber clients does not make their services highly functional. so if you are using mail.ru agent for icq - it's also support jabber protocol with gtalk, ya.online and livejournal preinstalled settings. if you are using fring or nimbuzz for skype/msn you can use it for jabber as well. but fring support only gtalk.
phonetinfo is good to get full information about your phone. it's unsigned.
you can quickly get your certificate on
note your phone number should have 11 digits and should begin from 13, 15 or 18
to sign unsigned or your software you with personal certificate you can use freesigner.
brightlight and phone tourch are two good. first is very minimalistic and looks good. second allows you to use morse code and to use green and red lights.
its cost is 26000 in pakistan but ppl r seeling it on black price rangig frm 27000-29000,,,so frnds wait a bit...it'll b coming down to 22000 sooon...
i have the 5800 and its an amazing device ,good battery life , stable . loud clear speakers , the only downside is the camera , and the only adv. for the 5530 is the homescreen only ! and its design , i think am getting it
