Nokia 5630 XpressMusic review: A sharp note


The XpressMusic family has walked a long way – and shed a great deal of weight – since the 5700. The music-centric Finns have always felt at home on Symbian ground though, and the Nokia 5630 is the next step for...

XpressMusic is not the Nokia 5630's only virtue. The subdued exterior reveals little of the talent that lays beneath. Along with the music perks go Wi-Fi, a 3-megapixel snapper, N-Gage support, and S60 FP2 to open the door to a whole world of extra apps

Nokia 5630 XpressMusic


This is a Symbian S60 smartphone, which means that the 5630 XpressMusic has a fair degree of flexibility when it comes to software. There are lots of tools for sharing files, accessing mail and the latest version of S60 allows for a personalised...

Review: Nokia 5630 XpressMusic


Packed with features, this candy-bar smartphone from Nokia presents great value in a small form factor.

Compact form factor; good music playback features; inexpensive; good keypad; HSDPA connectivity up to 10.2Mbps

QVGA screen; no GPS; poor battery life; no autofocus for camera

One of the best things about the Nokia 5630 XpressMusic is its retail price of S$508 (US$395.45). That may not seem exceptionally cheap, but if you factor in operator subsidies, it can be had for S$128 with some cheap price plans. There's also a Comes...

Nokia 5630 XpressMusic


On opening the now familiar reduced packaging (it's good for the environment), my first thought on seeing the Nokia 5630 music smartphone was both simple and something I suspect the Finnish designers will be very happy to hear. That thought? "Where's...

Nokia 5630 XpressMusic


It's hard to fault a phone that “Comes With Music” and in the Nokia 5630's case it's barely necessary. With a powerful processor, solid OS and user-friendly user interface it comes with a whole lot more than music.

Nokia’s “Comes With Music” is such a ridiculously good offer that it is difficult to pay much attention to the hardware that comes with the package. The 5630 stands out as a smartphone however. It looks plain, has a gimmick free interface and could...

That was the moment when the 5630 XpressMusic caught my attention and I got curious as to why it didn't appeal to local distributors. The answers I got from different people weren't much different, as all of them were along the lines of: œIt's an okay...

Nokia launches 5630 XpressMusic


Features include ‘say and play' (where you can use the speech recognition service to select a song), a bundled 4GB memory card for up to 3,000 songs (but pop in a 16GB card and that jumps to a whopping 12,000 – if you don't mind a fair degree of...

"cheap but imperfect"


I had a SE W350i before tis 5630, when i compared the quality of music output, it is obvious that nokia has little understanding of music compared to SE.

lousy music quality
