Ok phone

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for a while and its definitely very sturdy. It holds a lot of music and the sound quality is amazing but there's no way to organize/manage your music. You have to search through the songs/artist lists one by one alphabetically each time until you find what you are looking for which is a real hassle. I've got about 50 songs on mine and there tends to be a really, really long lag when I want to start the music player or change songs.
  • Pros: -indestructible, -still have good battery life even after 2 years
  • Cons: -very bulky, -long lag, -no way of organizing music

  • Excerpt: I am using this phone for past 6 months. Nokia 5300 is a truly fat phone but has cool music quality. Now, you get my point? All this if you have around 150 songs (with 1GB Memory Card) in your library, if you load more songs, things will get messy. Music keys are a Rock-star feature on this phone. Strong but flimsy built. The red band like design around the phone is made of cheap rubber and has undulating surface.
  • Pros: One of the best screen resolution and beautiful music key which allows you to change songs in the middle of a game (if game volume is muted)!
  • Cons: Bulky, a no-no for girls if you are wearing skinny jeans. It bulges out like a huge brick in you pocket.

Nokia 5300 XpressMusic

  • Summary: I liked this phone because it looked good and came with a good memory card. Basically its what you expect from Nokia, simple and easy to use with good music features. The only let down is the battery life, which is rather pathetic. I leave it on for one day and it goes to critical battery. Basically not what you want from a music mobile. I would only purchase if you are willing to charge it every night.
  • Pros: The look and side music buttons.
  • Cons: The battery life and low quality camera.

Good music player, other than that....:(

  • Excerpt: I've been using this phone for about half a year now cuz I got it for free even though I hate sliders. At first I was pretty excited about the music player, which is its best feature. The design of the phone was the first thing I didn't like but let's assume that I am biased because I don't like slide phones. Battery life is so short!!!

Eh...I do not approve.

  • Excerpt: This phone was my favorite for a while...until the sound died. Well not exactly, but it became VERY hard to hear other people and for them to hear me. My brother got the exact same phone and has the same problems. Also, I'm upgrading because this phone LOCKED ME OUT OF IT! By that I mean the slider, which is supposed to slide up, simply stopped sliding up. It wasn't sticky or caught on anything, it just stopped sliding.

A good phone

  • Summary: I bought this for my husband as he had one previous and liked it. The phone that came wasn't T-Mobile so I had to pay extra in my local town to have it unlocked, however it is doing the job he wants and although it isn't the colour advertised he has never complained about it, a good phone.

  • Excerpt: Its a generally alright phone however ive found it slightly awkward to handle and the slide feature can get irritating. It has plenty of feautres, although without buying a memory card for it you dont really get much onto it. Can hold about 50 songs with a memory card.

  • Excerpt: As one of the first series of xpressmusic edition, this phone did make its mark. However, it is now outdated by other phones in the same series. for starters, it is incredibly bulky unlike its competitors. the sound quality just does not match sony ericcson. The vga camera is nothing but a moderately pixelated excuse for a picture. It does nothing good without proper lighting. Overall, this phone will be soon forgotten.
