Excerpt: Nokia's XpressMusic series received no less than four devices since the highly acclaimed Nokia 5700 made its way on the shelves. While most of these XpressMusic phones can be considered mid-level in technical features, there's one that surpassed all expectations – Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Unfortunately, we won't be talking about the first Nokia phone featuring a touchscreen, instead we will test the rightful predecessor of the older 5700 model, Nokia 5320 XpressMusic.
Excerpt: The Nokia 5320 is undoubtedly a budget phone from Nokia with usability that matches any phone in the market. Simplicity is the key with this XpressMusic smartphone that grows on you with time. Read on to find out more about this device.
Excerpt: To include Nokia 5320 XpressMusic to this class is possible thanks to Symbian OS with S60 user interface instead of the standard S40. Nevertheless, not only employed entrepreneurs can buy Nokia 5320 XpressMusic, but also young people, because the device is the next replenishment of the famous line of music phones of the Finnish company. Judging by the index in the title, we can assume that Nokia 5320 XpressMusic is heir of the Nokia 5310 XM.
Conclusion: Nokia 5320 XpressMusic offers precisely the things a young person will look for in a musical phone – good sound and attractive-but-not-for-everyone design. You also get the bonuses that come with the OS; Web browser, and the available option to install various applications (including the future N-Gage support) and personalization. On top of that, it is one of the cheapest new Symbian phones with a base price of $260 (without a contract).
Pros: Very good sound quality, Full Symbian functionality with S60 interface (3rd Еdition, Feature Pack 2), Great Web browser, Entertaining built-in games plus the feature support of N-Gage, Low-priced smartphone, 3.5 mm jack for the headphones of your choice
Cons: Uncomfortable buttons, Inability to play quality video, Weak camera, Specific design (targeting the young audience)
Summary: The Nokia 5320 is a music and gaming oriented smartphone which has the lowest launch price of any S60 device so far. Among its highlights are a dedicated audio chip for better sound quality, 24 hours of music playback, a 3.5mm audio jack, N-Gage-compatibility, and music/gaming keys.
Excerpt: The Nokia 5320 is another expansion of Nokia’s music-centric range, although this time around it’s aimed at the youth looking not only for sound quality, but also unconventional features. The 5320 just happens to have some, including Say and Play that allows the user to press a button, say some song’s title and artist and the handset will start playing it. But by and large, it is a mere gimmick that won’t be particularly craved among the phone’s audience.
Conclusion: Topping the list of its features is the 3G capabilities which would boost music downloading as well as your usual mobile web surfing activities. The Nokia 5320 is also equipped with Nokia’s innovative “Say and Play” feature which would allow users to control the phone’s play function by saying the title of the songs that they want to hear.
