Nokia 5030 Review


"The Nokia 5030 is part of the XpressRadio series of phones and as the name suggests, the main feature is the FM radio."

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

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
