This review is a little outdated. It's based on an earlier model of the phone with an older version of the firmware. If you've bought the phone in the last couple of months (mine sports the latest firmware right off the shelf-5130d, there are no updates since)now the phone has flightmode, the game Bounce Tales has been removed (or maybe that's not available in the Indian version of the phone)and the organizer now has a field for 'anniversary'. There must be a myriad of other changes that I must not have noticed. Great review though, it's what made me purchase the phone in the first place and I'm happy with the5130.

Great review! I love it that your team tested the audio output with professional equipment. You guys always do a great job of exploring and enunciating every little detail, pro and con of the phones you review. So I knew just what to expect. Anyway, I Just purchased the phone and I'm very happy with it, but I notice you've mentioned ambient light sensor as one of the key features, needless to say it doesn't have one.
Yes, the AD 54 remote control works with this phone. You can switsh between radio stations, next song - last song, volume up and down

adesh, 13 Aug 2009gprs connection not provided to nokia 5130 xpress musicahh... china, N5130 uses oper mini
The camera quality is pathetic.I had a nokia 3110c which had a pretty good quality camera.But the NIPS technology in 5130 is pathetic.Dont even think of taking an indoor picture.There is no Night mode!Then why the hell did they add camera feature if they cant provide night mode.If you need a camera phone ,dont buy this..and dont listen to some reviews saying that phone camera cant take good pics.

borntofight.trainedt, 12 Aug 2009just got this phone as my reward for staying connected with Sun Cellular for 2 years. but i ha... morehi, i am also from the philippines. regarding N5130, is that true that the GUI (general user interface) is almost the same as the other S40 phone? No add on or new features? The external appearance of the fon is awesome. is there available casing for this phone if ever you want to change it in the future? that's the common problem of cellphone users here in the philippines.. regarding the auidio quality, is that true the the quality is good? in a 1-10 rating can u rate it as 9?
thank you. i will buy it this coming weekend. :)
just got this phone as my reward for staying connected with Sun Cellular for 2 years. but i had to cash out a minimal amount of money..
the price of the phone itself here in the Philippines is roughly Php 5,500-6,000. not but for the unit itself. looks elegant. i got the red one but the blue one looks better (too bad they dont have stock the time i got mine) the battery can last up to 3-4 days without listening to music and about 2 days when listening. charging takes a long time. i dont know if thats normal. charging the 5130xm takes 4 HOURS!!! (my other SE phones takes only about an hour. contrary to the review on this site, it has a flight mode activation.
this phone is for you if you want to have a normal call/text fone with an added xpress music bonus..
feel free to ask me any questions that you have regarding this fone.
