Nokia 5310 review: XpressMusic slimline

 

Nokia 5310 made thousands of fans with its very announcement. Packing a 16M color QVGA display, dedicated music keys, stereo Bluetooth and FM radio in a sleek thin body, this neat handset is sure to appeal to quite a lot of slim phone admirers. Plus,...

9.9 mm slim and lightweight ; 3.5 mm standard jack ; Lots of preloaded applications ; 2" 16M color display with QVGA resolution ; Ambient light sensor ; Decent keypad ; Bluetooth with A2DP ; S40 5th edition user interface ; Stereo FM radio with RDS ;...

Mediocre camera with no flash or auto focus, really slow ; Tri-band only ; No 3G ; Memory card slot under the battery cover ; Inadequate QCIF video recording ; Uneven backlighting

It seems that Nokia is more determined than ever to get its fair share of the slim phone market. Releasing 5310 right after the 6500 classic comes to prove that producing phones less than 10 mm thick is no problem for the Finns. Moreover, Nokia 5310...

Nokia 5310 XpressMusic

 

The Nokia 5310 XpressMusic is an adorable and affordable choice for T-Mobile users looking to chat, groove, and message.

Good-looking. Excellent voice quality. Solid music quality and options.

Dismal camera. Speaker is on the back.

Nokia 5310 Xpress Music review

 

Ten months after announcing its new 5310 and 5610 Xpress Music phones, Nokia finally has released them to a U.S. carrier--well, at least one of them. Last week in New York City, T-Mobile added the 5310 to its lineup, and from what we understand, it...

The 5310 Xpress Music has an attractive design with a brilliant display and easy-to-use controls. It also offers a solid feature set and satisfying performance.

The 5310 Xpress Music has a pitifully small internal memory and poor photo quality; also, it's not a quadband world phone.

The Nokia 5310 continues the fine Xpress Music tradition by offering a satisfying blend of features and performance in an attractive design.

Nokia 5310 XpressMusic

 

The stylish 5310 is the most pocket-friendly music phone on the market and offers very good call quality.

The 5310 XpressMusic lives up to its name. It doesn’t offer over-the-air downloads or 3G data speeds, but if you're looking for a sleek cell phone that doubles as a music player, we highly recommend this handset.

Nokia 5310 Review

 

This Nokia 5310 Xpressmusic review takes an inside look at the design and the user interface of this Nokia phone giving an overview of what the Nokia 5310 has to offer.

The Nokia 5310 XpressMusic is quite deficient in functionality and there is plenty of room on the device for improvement. However, this is somewhat of a budget phone meant to appeal to fun loving users, it therefore fits the bill well. The Nokia 5310...

Nokia 5310 XpressMusic

 

The Nokia 5310 is a music-focused phone that gets it right. Often, music phones lack some key feature or are too challenging to use easily. But the Nokia 5310 is a good example of a good quality phone that “does music good”. When you press the play...

Nokia 5310 Xpress Music Phone

 

T-Mobile became the first carrier in the US to add the Nokia 5310 Xpress Music phone to its cellular phone line-up at the end of May 2008, almost a year after Nokia unveiled it. The Xpress Music phone from Nokia is more compact than its predecessor,...

Nokia has given its consumers a nice selection of colors to choose from as well, as the 5310 can be purchased in combinations of red and black, blue and black, orange and black, and purple and black. Needless to say, the combination of bright, eye...

Nokia 5310 Cell Phone Review

 

The Nokia 5310 XpressMusic is a compact, candy-bar format phone offered by T-Mobile. As you can tell by its name, it's intended to be a music-oriented phone and it has the external music control buttons and included accessories to live up to that name....

The 5310's operating system is responsive and user-customizable with wallpapers, themes, ringtones, and more. What it doesn't offer is the ability to add applications - you'll be limited to downloading games from T-Mobile's T-Zones store, and not much...
