Nokia 5130 XpressMusic (T-Mobile)

 

The Nokia 5130 XpressMusic is a solid music phone that's lightweight, feels durable, and is a genuine bargain, especially with T-Mobile's Even More Plus plans.

Slim and lightweight. Solid music playback. Standard-size headphone jack. Side-mounted microSD card slot.

Mediocre camera. No 3G.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions Nokia claims a 2GB maximum microSD card size, though my 16GB SanDisk card worked fine; there's also 30MB of internal memory. The 5130 displayed album art when available, and the side-mounted media controls light up...

Review Of The Nokia 5130 XpressMusic Cell Phone

 

The phonebook of the of the 5130 is dependent on its shared memory which is 30MB. Each contact can hold upto 6 phone numbers, email addresses, birthdays, notes, a formal name and a nick name. The basic features that this one has to offer are...

Good music player, decent functionality, good battery life

Speaker output not that great, keypad has a slippery plastic feel to it

This one is one of the low end phones being launched in the Express music category. It's simple in function and design but still has a lot to offer for the price. This could be your pick if you like to have your music on the move without burning a hole...

Nokia 5130 XpressMusic Review

 

Nokia's XpressMusic series adds another device to its portfolio, which targets young music lovers with not-so-high budgets. The new Nokia 5130 XpressMusic is one of the latest mass-market mobile phones and it offers a complete music solution to those...

The first things I would like to mention here are the nice finishes, the easy-to-handle music controls, excellent music sound, and good shiny plastic that improves the usual XpressMusic design. Also, one of the most important things, Nokia 5130...

I would've liked to see a more decent camera and the possibility to add a better memory card. Even though some higher-capacity cards might work with the device, it doesn't officially offer support for these. I also think that the short microUSB cable...
