No bells and whistles, not text friendly but remain loyal to Nokia brand
20 September 2011
Summary: Knowing that the Nokia 5300 is not one of the "latest, greatest" cell phones, and I could care less about taking pics or listening to music, its just a basic cell phone I purchased for sole purpose of being able to have the Bands to use it from outside the USA.
Excerpt: Good phone for its price. 1.3mp cam is good enough for everyday photos, a bit dull though. Video capture is horrible, with stuttering frame-rates. Mediaplayer is not very user friendly, and it's not very special either: its the same mediaplayer as on most mid-range Nokia Phones.
Pros: Durable, Great Speaker, Screen (265k colors), Music Buttons, Long Battery Life, Camera (photos), CHEAP
Cons: Feels CHEAP, Ugly, Videa Capture is horrible, Bulky, Standard S40 mediaplayer/not special
