Excerpt: Nokia 5310 XpressMusic is the first mobile phone in the XpressMusic series. This model can serve as an example of how to combine a stylish device with excellent characteristics of pure music playback, thanks to its special audio chip. The perfect balance between these facets makes Nokia 5310 XpressMusic emulated for later models of this kind.
Excerpt: The phonebook of the of the 5130 is dependent on its shared memory which is 30MB. Each contact can hold upto 6 phone numbers, email addresses, birthdays, notes, a formal name and a nick name. The basic features that this one has to offer are calculator, currency converter, alarm clock, wordlock, stopwatch and a notepad.
Excerpt: Thumbs up: Good music player, decent functionality, good battery life. Thumbs down: Speaker output not that great, keypad has a slippery plastic feel to it. THE WHIZ-KID SPEAKS: In the past Nokia Express Music has come up with a variety of phones ranging from the suave to the random weird ones. T-mobile is the only carrier in the U.S to be offering the Express Music starting in the year 2006 with the 5300 and then later on it was followed up with 5310 and the 5610.
Excerpt: Nokia's XpressMusic series adds another device to its portfolio, which targets young music lovers with not-so-high budgets. The new Nokia 5130 XpressMusic is one of the latest mass-market mobile phones and it offers a complete music solution to those who are fans of the series. Before going into more details, I have to point out the fact that we will be seeing this device more like a music phone and we will not be so harsh regarding the other features that might interest...
Pros: The first things I would like to mention here are the nice finishes, the easy-to-handle music controls, excellent music sound, and good shiny plastic that improves the usual XpressMusic design. Also, one of the most important things, Nokia 5130 XpressMusic can be bought for a decent price, while it offers excellent features.
Cons: I would've liked to see a more decent camera and the possibility to add a better memory card. Even though some higher-capacity cards might work with the device, it doesn't officially offer support for these. I also think that the short microUSB cable that comes with the phone is a joke, as you can only use it while keeping your handset near the USB port.

Excerpt: One might mistake Nokia for a chocolate company with all the candy bar phones they’ve produced over the years! And like chocolate, unwrapping the Noikia 5130 will bring a smile. The latest in Nokia’s XpressMusic line, the 5130 offers up a full entry-level feature set with the mandatory calculator, alarm and such, but also includes an FM radio, Bluetooth, 2MP camera with video, microSD memory expandability, speakerphone and, yes, a 3.5mm headset jack.

Summary: The Nokia 5130 XpressMusic's lack of 3G connectivity will turn many users elsewhere, but if you plan to use your mobile phone as a music player and aren't interested in the mobile Web, then it's definitely worth a look.
Pros: 3.5mm headphone jack, funky design, FM radio, Comes With Music subscription included, loud speaker and excellent sound quality, included 1GB microSD card
Cons: No 3G, keypad is small and flat, OS is sluggish at times, can't charge via micro-USB port
Nokia 5310 XpressMusic mobile phone - First Look review
29 August 2007
Conclusion: It might sound dull, but as an entry-level music phone the Nokia 5310 ticks all the boxes. It offers storage up to 4GB (around 3000 songs) via a microSD slot, stereo Bluetooth to share the music via one of the many speakers coming from the likes of Altec Lansing and JBL and easy to use dedicated music buttons to get you into the groove. Where it is likely to fall short is when you want it do something else other than just play music.
Pros: Music buttons, thin shape, series 40 interface, 2 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth
Cons: No Ovi connection, not much beyond music features
