Hey all..firstly I wanna express my big admiration for the GSMArena site, it's really my favourite site as I'm a big mobile phones maniac :)
and I truly appreciate the big efforts of the GSMArena team..they really make the most objective and detailed mobile phone reviews online!
However, I've got a remark that I hope most people would be aware of..in their comments on the announcement of the Xpress Music line from nokia the gsmarena team said that "the flagship of this trio is undoubtedly the 5300"...well, I've got to point out though that the 5300 (and 5200) is made in Hungary (see the pic with back cover removed in 5300's review) which logically means that it would have a lower quality than the Finnish-made ones as the 3250 xpress music for example..I personally had a bad experience with those Hungarian-made nokias..they have a weak construction and they look quite cheap! let alone the fact that they've got nothing to do with durability!! (notice that in their review of 5300 the gsmarena team states that it has cheap looks and plays a little when closed)
Nokia has always delegated making budget, low-end phones to Hungary so I don't seem to understand why such is the case with a phone that is a member of a family which is supposed to strongly compete with the walkman series from SE! what I'm saying is that if any music-maniac nokia fan out there is looking for a durable, high-quality handset with an OS and a relatively reasonable price then he definitely should go for the 3250 Xpress Music, not the 5300..or if he's got enough budget then maybe one of the N-series Music Edition phones would suit him. I really hope my point would be taken into consideration..just for the sake of customers' peace of mind! So, any replies or comments from you guys?
I want to ask something about nokia 5300. I live in Turkey. For us nokia 5300 is a new phone. Some of the user complain about the slider of the phone. They say because of the slider the screen of the phone can be broke very very easily. I had a huge desire for buying this phone but I get confuse about this reason. Can anyone help me? Is there a real screen problem or is it just a rumour? Does it really break up easily? Thanks
ABOUT UI: 5300 has Symbian 40 3rd edition, service pack1 - it looks like S60. It supports Flash Lite 1.2 - it means that to every image which is skinable eg. wallpaper, ICON, button You can assign animation (*.swf). All U just need is Nokia Series 40 Theme Studio 2.2 (3w . forum .nokia .com) and MacromediaFlash 2004 or newer with flashlite plugin. Also U can play FlashLite games. Skinable parts also support SVG vector graphics and PNG 24bit, but nowdays it is nothing new.

The winner is ROKR E2 (in Indonesia 5300 Rp 2.550.000 and E2 Rp 2.300.000)
im going to buy this phone.. it's too cool.. cant stop thinking of it..
the only UI that can match(not equally) to the best highly-configurable platform and UI of SE is Nokia. like the ui coz it looks like an S60 UI but there's no animation in the menu, layout maneuver cannot be 3D, and icons cannot be changed either. but among the others except SE it has the best highly-configurable UI and has a lot of themes available at this moment.
I'm gonna get this phone very soon. I think it a very great phone considering all it's rich features compared to the price. I currently use nokia 6101 and i'm planning to change to the nokia 5300. Nokia rules...
ya its a very nice phone i am using it with happyly,,thanks to nokia,,and they want to interduce a more phone like this,,
simply state-of-an-art!i like its music features and impressive design... ill buy this phone soon! ! ! !!!!
Can anyone pls tell me if the music player on this phone works if the phone is not switched on? As in, when I'm on the plane and no mobile phones are allowed, can I still listen to my music??
