Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review: Full musical keyboard

 

No news is good news and the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is quite keen to go about humming that tune like it didn't care. Recruiting Symbian for an entertainment job is nothing new really and no, we're not surprised...

The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is treating the younger crowd to the all-round skill of dad's E75. Alright, it may not be as simple as that but the 5730 is only just some corporate email (and plenty of steel) short of Eseries excellence. The XpressMusic...

Social networks, music and chats have become integral to modern cell phones. Trying to keep up and stay in the forefront, Nokia released their first music-oriented handsets with full QWERTY keyboard at the height of this summer – the Nokia 5730...

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic Review

 

Nokia's XpressMusic series adds another device to its portfolio, Nokia 5730 XpressMusic, a smartphone that combines business and multimedia features. While the phone may look like an ordinary bar handset, the surprise comes from the fact that it comes...

The slider is a very good solution for music phone fans, especially since it features goodies like Wi-Fi, GPS receiver and QWERTY keyboard. Nokia 5730 is good value for money and boasts a wide range of features, which makes it such a versatile device....

Perhaps the 'ordinary' construction of the phone is what hurts it the most, as the technical features are up to the standards. Also I didn't like the cheap feeling of the plastic that was used to manufacture the 5730 handset. Otherwise, the device is a...

Overall Mixing business functions and a QWERTY keyboard with the features we expect in an XpressMusic handset is interesting in concept, but we're not sure Nokia is onto a winner with this one. People looking for a business phone will likely turn to...

When we say "closely related", what we really mean is that the 5730 XpressMusic is almost identical in every way, except that the 5730 is a prettier phone to look at, more fun to use.. and priced at just €280 before tax and subsidy, the 5730 is about...

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic

 

The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is a new model with full slide-out QWERTY keyboard running Symbian S60 3.2 (Feature Pack 2). The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic also sports a 2-inch QVGA screen, GPS, 128MB of RAM, Bluetooth and a microSD card slot.

Great music features; Qwerty keypad; nice design

Buttons overload; heavy

At RM1,350, this phone is positioned as mid to high price range, but if you're looking for a music phone with more versatile features, then the Nokia 5730 is worth considering.

Sometimes the brand name is just enough for the customers. Any new handset in the market from their house gets the publicity required, and thus gets swept up in a jiffy. Quality and reliability is the key word. Latest on the list is the Nokia 5730...

The Nokia 5730 Xpressmusic is elaborate in details. However, the big talks about the audio quality are rather hollow and the Symbian OS needs to take a break. Otherwise it is loaded with the available technologies and though out of the league, the...

Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review

 

A new mid-range music phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard

Wi-Fi and HSDPA connectivity ; Excellent music player audio performance ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; A-GPS satellite positioning and Nokia Maps ; S60 smartphone functionality ; Slide out full QWERTY keyboard ; Good earphones ; 8GB MicroSD card supplied

Bulky design ; 3.2-megapixel camera isn't great ; Control pad awkward ; Some feature options buried in menus ; No touchscreen operation

The Nokia 5730 XpressMusic has plenty of decent features that should make it very attractive, and it delivers an exceptional music performance. But overall it has a hybrid feel to it that helps make its design less than appealing.
