Conclusion: The Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is a decent music phone, but it's definitely not an all-singing multimedia device. We really didn't like using the stylus and the lack of 3G means browsing the Web on the go isn't great. But if you don't mind using the stylus and you're looking for a relatively inexpensive music phone then it's worth checking out.
Nokia 5530 XpressMusic Review - A plunge into mediocrity
21 July 2010
Excerpt: Another day, another Nokia XpressMusic phone. This time we are going to take a look at a mid-range music phone, Nokia 5530 XpressMusic. Besides its audio-centric features, the handset comes with a resistive touchscreen and runs on the Symbian 9.4 5th Edition platform. These attributes are shared by almost all XpressMusic phones launched after Nokia 5800.
Pros: There's a long list of nice features that Nokia 5330 XpressMusic includes, but I would say that the strongest point is the hardware: ARM 11 434 MHz processor, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g. Anyway, here are the other highlights of Nokia 5330: microSD card (16 GB supported, 4GB included), 3.5 mm audio jack, Stereo FM Radio with RDS, Flash support for the web browser, decent audio quality, good battery life.
Cons: The main problem with the device is its obsolete interface, which seems poor in customization options, as well as functions. I would also list the poor legibility of the display in direct sunlight, lack of smart dialing and GPS receiver, as well as the mediocre camera.

Excerpt: The 5530 XpressMusic has been a bit of a mystery. Although it’s been out there for a while now, it’s a bit elusive when it comes to being on the shelves. There are very few places that carry the handset and I don’t see why. But here's a closer look at Nokia's latest XpressMusic touchscreen device.

Summary: Call quality was never an issue with the 5530, as it easily lived up to our expectations of a Nokia-branded phone. Ring tones sounded quite loud and we were happy with them even in noisy environments. The vibro alter was of moderate strength.
Those who already own the Nokia 5800 won't have any reason to buy the pared-down version of the same phone, whose only advantages are a decent pair of earphones in the box and a lower price.
Summary: Like we've been saying, it's always better late than never. When Nokia introduced the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic as the first device utilizing the Symbian S60 V5.0 touch OS, it did generate a spark of interest, but not as much as the Nokia N97 that was announced during Nokia World 2008. Having developed a comprehensive suite of online services under the Ovi brand name, Nokia is now on the device warpath with the unveiling of its touch screen devices, such as the Nokia 5530...
