Nokia 5030 XpressRadio

 

Similar in many ways to the Sony Ericsson R300 Radio, the Nokia 5030 XpressRadio is aimed primarily at emerging markets where the radio is an important source of information and entertainment.

Consumer review by:

Pretty good

 

This is a rugged phone. If you're a meat & potatoes kind of person, you'll like this phone... not many frills of fluff..... maybe not the red part

Sound quality is very good ; The radio is quite good ; Battery life is very good ; All the functions work well

No blue tooth

It's OK...

 

I'm keeping this phone for travel. If it gets broken or stolen, I won't care, since it isn't worth even the US$60+ I paid for it. If you need a basic phone, I can't justify paying for this model. If you need an MP3 player that makes emergency calls,...

It's a basic phone with few frills and is pretty light ; It makes phone calls, you can text, and listen to some MP3s ; The electronics are very good ; It will work with Canadian & European SIM cards & cell networks

No bluetooth/wi-fi/networking at all ; There are mis-dials on the number pad, and dialing and texting aren't smooth ; The body is plastic and feels cheap, even if the electronics are good

Nokia 5030 after a fortnight

 

I purchased a Nokia 5030 cell phone on 09-01-2010 from Cell point, Gajuwaka, Visakhapatnam, AP for Rs

High Battery life and neat styling

Flat membrane kind of keypad not convenient for texting

Consumer review by:

Head Turner

 

I recently joined an organization which does not allow camera cell phones in its premises, I was in a total fix, I was almost broke and had to get myself an handset which would keep me entertained and ...

Great Design, Color, Sound

An MP3 Player with expandable memory would be an excellent feature

Consumer review by:

Great phone at its price.

 

Greetings all..

Battery backup, Antennae-less FM radio, moisture and dust proof keypad

Handsfree jack at side makes it uneasy to listen fm with cell in pocket
