Kel, 10 Aug 2009I wanna buy this baby. only difference with 5800 is it has no GPS and 3G which we dont normall... morePeople are seriously misinformed.
Lower battery life (has a crappier battery), sound quality, single LED instead of dual LED, coming with only 4Gb instead of 8GB, no 2nd camera for video calls, headphone jack at the bottom.
I can't stress this enough, it's good but still inferior to the 5800. Nokia isn't that stupid.
eshaan, 10 Aug 2009And nokia have not confirmed it either...It was a Nokia PR manager who said it himself when asked at the 5530 presentation. He said the 5800 would also be getting the good stuff.
eshaan, 10 Aug 2009Hmm but they seem to think it slow down or maybe cause problems to the phone. i think il stick... moreWhat problems? Stop lying to yourself, you just want to believe the 5530 is better at a lower price. Nokia has been selling phones in the business for quite sometime. Don't think that they're that stupid.
coth, 10 Aug 2009IEatCookiesForBreakf, it does have WLAN, it does have same display resolution as 5800, so pict... moreForgot to mention the worse battery and battery life, worse camera, the headphone jack at the bottom, coming with a 4GB card instead of an 8GB card and lower sound quality.
Also, the sharpness will be the same. The difference isn't big enough to see any possible difference with the human eye. When you say "a lot", you don't really know what you're saying.
The difference is big enough, however, to notice when watching fullscreen videos and pictures or playing games on a smaller screen.
You want a smaller screen? Go buy a normal non-touchscreen alphanumeric phone with a 1" screen.
There's the new LG Chocolate coming out with a 4" screen and I don't see anyone complaining, must be even better for watching videos.

And 3G makes one hell of a difference while browsing. But you won't get that with either phone, so...
What, you were actually thinking Nokia would give you a better phone at a smaller price? They're just making it look that way, so that they can sell more 5530 for those that can't afford the 5800.
y did dey only release in d uk in black n red dont dey kno we waitin so long colours ppl colours n gsm pls do review
eshaan, 10 Aug 2009Yeah if the 5800 can have such an increase i will look forward to the firmware updates for 553... moreDoubt it. It's the same proc, why'd they make it go faster on a lower end phone. Besides, they won't go for more than 434Mhz. With a touchscreen, high resolution, and made for intense music and video playback, the battery wouldn't last.
Sorry, but don't get your hopes up, it's just not happening.
in my own opinion, i think this mobile phone needs a lot of work, rubbish video, led for the flash is terrible and no 3g and also 1000MAH battery power is extremly poor for this type of music phone, because think of how much info and music you are going to put onto this espeically when you want to put your work documents onto this rubbish mobile. I wouldn't agree on buying this mobile, and the mobile looks shi*e in my own opinion.

Hi folks, 2 questions about this phone...
1. The battery can it be charged even when not empty or will that damage it?
2. Can you zoom in while taking the photo or does it only zoom after when photo taken?
