sandra, 14 Mar 2007Hi
I want to ask something about nokia 5300. I live in Turkey. For us nokia 5300 is a new ph... morehi! m nalin i've been using this for since a year...no doubt this phone has a good functionality but.this phone is very fradgile and after one or two falls the phone starts up with problems.
as well as the internal memory is not good.
i would recommend u to go for nokia7210 and if this phone hasn't reached the market yet,i would recommend u to wait for some time.
nokia 5300 is good but not of a very strong hardware
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2007i got this phone 3 month ago..i love it,but wish it have 3G & MP4 too, best thing is i droped ... moreyou have this phone for the past 3 months........use it for another 3 months ...see what happens and get back to me.
nokia 5300 is a very good phone indeed but, the internal phone body is very delicate............i've been using this phone for the past 1 year and another thing which i find annoying is the internel memory of the phone also not many softwares are applicable on this phone.
only had for 1 month, treated like any other nokia i had, screen very fragile, now broken and useless !!!! would not recommend to anyone!

I mean rock my world! Just kidding!this phone is awesome!the music is nice and loud at the same time! So i recommend it!!!superb phone!
I agree, I've gone through 3 of these phones in 8 months.
They all suffered from broken screens and internal breaks.
A very poor and fragile phone I agree and I definitely will NOT be buying a Nokia in the future.
I will be moving to Sony Ericsson or Samsung.
Until Nokia comes up with a solid hard worthwhile phone I will be moving to other manufacturer's
i recently put a new screen into my nokia 5300 and you can kinda see things on it but its way too bright. does anyone know how i can fix this or do i need to buy a new one?
I went through 3 of these phones in 4 months. My GF went through 2 of them.
This phone is way too fragile and delicate. The battery life is poor; not anywhere near up to par for Nokia. If you listen to ANY music at all, the battery lasts a day at best.
Screen cracks if you look at it funny; I broke it twice. Never had that problem with any other phone. Then, the microphone stopped working...I could listen to callers, but they could not hear me.
Additionally, the slider felt worn after a month of use; each phone was brand new and the slider felt as if it was going to start slipping closed after 4 weeks of use.
The camera image quality is OK, but there's no flash and the shutter is very, very slow so it's hard to catch images.
After my GF and I went through a total of 5 of these phones in 4 months, we switched phones. We were tired of replacing the 5300; it wasn't worth it.
I'd skip it. I hope they made the new 5310 more like a Nokia, and less like a fragile faberge egg.
Jenna, 10 Nov 2007Bought 2 of these phones 2 months ago both screens are cracked. now we are both stuck with cra... moreYou can replace the screens easy enough for $20.00, If that is the only problem with the phone.
Compared to other phone models, this 5300 nokia is not really support for downloading games. Even 3230 nokia phone able to download games but not 5300.
Why is that so ????
This phone is awesome...everyone that says it sucks or cracks or whatever...they must not know how to take care of it. I bought this phone the day it came out and it is still good as ever! it is awesome! it has been dropped and sat on and you name it and it is still running strong! so to everyone who is debting on wheather or not to get this phone, it is the best buy you will ever make! I love this phone!
