Excerpt: Well, what do i tell you?? It's cute to look at and comfortable to hold...it's all candy outside. But you use it and you realise that it's not good as it looks. There's the battery and then the RAM...it could've been improved, but what could i say, a processor of 1GHz during the time this phone was released, was still something to look up to! That's not all, you can't see anything under the sun..
Excerpt: Well i would say that i m really disappointed with this phone ..Its battery timing sucks....talktime is 4 h 54 min but its just last for 3 hours ...it really sucks...i hate it....it is only a music phone ..it has best audio qua;ity with good camera...but battery timing is worst...hate it..i would recomend 5800 Xpress music or sonyericsson vivaz ,,,which is bettr than this....
Pros: good audio quality, good camera, good built quality
Cons: poor battery timing, sluggish, hangs alot, touch screen is not responsive
Phone with decent specification but not ready for prime time yet.

Summary: I purchased this phone couple of months back and it does have good features and specification for reasonable price. But after spending 4 months with it, this product is not ready for the prime time. Phone OS has plenty of bugs and it has caused lots of lost hours in productivity. ( i am already with three firmware upgrades since I purchased the phone) The time spent in lost productivity is not worth the money or features or functionality.
Summary: I bought this phone to replace an ancient Nokia phone (probably was purchased in 2002). I wanted a smallish phone with wifi connectivity and wanted to use it with my t-mobile sim. I have had this phone for a couple of weeks. It works great, call quality is better than my old phone, the web browsing works fine for lots of basic things. I like it a lot. Some problems with the phone: 1. Sometimes you tap once to do something, other times you need to tap twice.
Summary: It's a good product, but comparatively price tag is high. Reason is, when you are getting Nokia 5800 music express with GPS and other good features for $250, why wll you spend $210 for a phone which doesn't have this.
Excerpt: i'm using this phone nd i figured it out that its too slow. and the camera quality is very poor as compared with other 3.2 mp phones. the touch screen is just ok. sound is nice. and bettery time is worst.
Excerpt: iv had the nokia 5530 for two months now and it was a great untill today it turned itself off and now when i turn it on it doesn't get past the white nokia screen iv left it on for 15 min and still nothing has happened, iv tried contacting nokia but the phonelines are useless poor service and carephonewarehouse say its not anything to do with them and its nokia who need to sort it out but its like iv spent 140 pounds on a phone that now dont turn on thanks nokia!!!
Pros: good fun apps, wi-fi, good camera, brilliant video camera, good memory and great headphones best phone for music.
Cons: very glitchy, freezes alot, battery not the best, turns off all the time and eventualy dont turn back on
Excerpt: Well I bought this phone two weeks ago, and it has already been sent back to Nokia for repairs. The ear-piece was dead out of the box - which is the same problem that was broadly reported for the more expensive 5800. The terrible thing is that the shop refused to exchange the unit! So I spent 200 EUR to receive nothing. thx nokia! They better fix it for free. Pro- Wireless surfing was okay, although not so fast on my otherwise fast wireless home connection.
