Nokia 5300 XpressMusic Review
In a nutshell: Nokia's answer to Sony Ericsson's Walkman range,
the 5300 is a slide design music phone that supports all the main digital
music formats and has a stereo FM radio too. A memory card lets you
store up to 1,500 songs. The 5300 also has a camera, Bluetooth wireless
connectivity (including support for a Bluetooth stereo headset) and
plenty of other features to keep you entertained. A good mid-range music
Review: December 2006. Updated July 2009.
The Nokia 5300 XpressMusic is a music player phone in a slide design.
It looks very much like a funky version of the Nokia
6111. Let's hope that it's better than that inside!
So, first impressions ... the 5300 has a nice compact design that is
good to hold. It's very slightly larger and heavier than the 6111, but
a little thinner. In our opinion it's the perfect size phone! There
are dedicated music keys on the outside (play, pause, forward & rewind)
and a camera key, so many of the phone's functions can be accessed without
opening the slide. The volume keys on the side double up as zoom keys
when the camera is in use. Clearly some thought has gone into the user
interface of the 5300, and it works well. The display is outstandingly
good. It's a high-resolution QVGA display (320 x 240 pixels) with 262k
colours, and it is large (2 inches across). All good so far! The slide
opens easily with a spring mechanism to reveal the main keypad, which
is nice to use and a good size (although the top row of keys are placed
rather close to the slide). The 5-way navigation key is easy to use.
Obviously music is at the heart of the 5300 so let's talk about that
next. The 5300 has a high-quality stereo music player that supports
all the main digital audio formats: MP3, Midi, AAC, AAC+, enhanced AAC+,
and WMA. There is also a stereo FM radio. The Nokia Stereo Headset HS-47
is included in the sales package and you can plug in your own headphones
via the new 2.5mm Nokia AV connector which can accept regular-sized
3.5mm headphones via an adaptor. There is also support for a stereo
(available separately). The audio quality is good, but not quite up
to the standard of the Sony Ericsson Walkman range.
A memory card is supplied in the sales package (size varies) and the
memory can be expanded
to 2 Gbytes (enough to store 1,500 songs).
As well as the music capabilities, the 5300 has all the other functions
that we have come to expect from a phone. The built-in camera has a
resolution of 1.3 megapixels, and there's a video recording option too.
There's no flash in the camera and the picture quality is no better
than average for phones in this price range, but imaging is not really
the purpose of this phone. The phone supports voice commands and has
a voice recorder too. You can use the voice recorder to record a message
and send it to another phone using Nokia's Audio Messaging system. Internet
access is fast, using EDGE, and a basic web browser is supplied. Connectivity
options include Bluetooth, USB and infrared, and a CD is supplied to
let you manage files and transfer your music from PC to phone. Battery
life is average, and probably compares reasonably well with an iPod
when it comes to playing music.
The Nokia 5300 XpressMusic is one of the very first phones in Nokia's
new XpressMusic range, which is clearly intended to rival Sony Ericsson's
Walkman range of phones. It will appeal to Nokia fans who might have
been tempted to defect to Sony Ericsson. The 5300 XpressMusic is in
some ways quite different to the SE Walkman range, but as a music phone
it holds its own. We look forward to more XpressMusic phones in the
future. The Nokia 5200 is almost the same
as the 5300 XpressMusic, with some features missing, so you could consider
it as an alternative if the budget is tight. One thing to note is that
quite a few users have reported that their 5300 broke easily, and it
does seem that there is not much protection - for the screen especially.
If you buy this phone, make sure that you treat it carefully if you
want it to last!
The 5300 is no longer in production. The latest music phone from Nokia
to hit the market is the Nokia

so far so good, i love the slider type. the only thing im refraining
from now is seeing how reviewers says it breaks easily. Better buy some
insurance! this isnt a cheap phone at retail price! anyways all of the
features seem to be pretty cool so far. this is the first phone ive
ever had that has a music player like an mp3! thats gonna save me from
having to hold and mp3 player AND phone, when i go work out at the gym.
This phone is all around awesome. Still somethings to work on it, like
internet and getting hi-fi ringers asap! cant wait!!

no complaints about the phone at all, just the spare parts for it are
rubbish, i accidentaly cracek the screen plastic, not the LCD screen,
it's a little bit of plastic about the size of a matchbox that is simpilythere
to cover the screen, i went into the shop that supplied it to me and
was told that it would cost not £1 not £5 not £20 but £60-£70 ERM....WHAT!??
Be carefull guys but other than that, awesome.

Bought this phone just over 2 weeks ago and im extremely impressed with
it. It has all the connectivity you can imagine... bluetooth, infrared,
usb, grps... The music only tends to loose quality if you have a low
bit rate on the track and you must use good headphone... the nokia supplied
headphones are okay but not the best. It goes to a very high volume
and is an outstanding design. iv dropped it a few times and nothing
broke on mine... not a scratch on it concluding i dropped it on concrete
face down. but anyway.. no problems what so ever... all in all, highly
recomended to everyone!

I currently have a Sony Ericsson K800,W810 and this Nokia 5300.The K800
has the best display by far and the best cam(Obviously) but I got the
5300 coz I thought it was cute. I was disapointed with the camera and
the MP3 quality of the 5300.However once I used the 3.5mm adopter and
connected my W series Sony HPM 70 headphones,The 5300 kinda beats the
Sony(Even tho I am a die hard SE Fan) The 5300 and Sony are same in
terms of quality(mp3 sound) but the 5300 sounds louder and slightly
sharper. Still SE is an allrounder and will always be my favourite,My
advise.If u get this fone,also get a really good pair of headphones
coz the suplied hphones from Nokia suck Big time

I didn't knw much abt other SE walkman phones but I did compared with
the W700i which is of the same price range as of the nokia 5300 .In
my opinion sound quality in a loudspeaker in 5300 is much more louder
and much clearer than SE W700i and with much more functions for other
aplications,too.When compared with head phones, SE is bit better,but
when i used head phones of the ipod it was same for both of them. If
we really compare W830,W850 of SE phones with nokia music phones then
we should compare it with same range of phones like nokia N series like
N73 & N91.

Good music phone, player is not tops but great. Sound is great if you
tweek the equalizer and use decent headphones (with the provided adapter).
2 down sides, first a small one, is the battery, just not used to phones
NOT lasting a week without use (receive/make calls). Second, keylock
function is idiotic, either lock all buttons including player (on the
side) or not at all. Also unlocks automatically if it accidently slides
open but won't lock automatically when slid back closed. That alone
wastes the battery substantially. Almost a perfect music phone.

Music player and the Head phones are really good and out here in India
they are giving 256 MB Micro SD card as well... so this part is really
nice. Not yet tested the radio... The sliding part is cool... Will get
back to you all with more updates. Until then take care and hope you
all get the best phone in the most resonable rates and dont get cheated.

This phone i have had for 3 days so far its good,it has a 1.3mp camera
and a radio mp3 plus memory card slot.The things it lacks on,it only
has 5mb of built in memory,if its suppose to be a music phone Nokia
come on give it some memory E.G. 256mb or 512mb its very large to for
a slider and to add to that its battery life stinks,music phone Nokia...
it needs to have long battery life etc... i think the WALKMAN range
are better for all the bad points on the Nokia.

im getting this phone in 2 days and im excited.. the camera is 1.3 mega
pixel which i think is pretty good considering its a MUSIC phone.. to
those people unhappy with it have you ever thought that maybe it wasnt
designed for the camera quality it is mainly about the music infact,
its almost a bonus u get such a good music player and reasonably good
camera. i have the motorola v3 razr right now [dont recomend buying
EVER] and its much more of an upgrade.. also.. if people are so unhappy
about its looks then why buy the phone? use your common sense lurv me

Had it 2 days and had to replace it as the Radio didn't work, the memory
card wouldn't read and the bluetooth headphone (Nokia brand) would not
connect. Lets hope the replacement goes better....... Also, I agree
with the comment that the phone feels plasticy. I just swapped from
a SOny Ericcson and they do feel a lot more substantial (dispite their
smaller size). Nokia take note!

Have used this for a little over a week on T mobile PAYG and am pleased
with it, although the housing feels and looks a little plasticy. Both
web and wap browsers are included and it works fast on both. The sound
quality is marvellous and via the supplied headphone adaptor it can
be attached to various ‘walkman’ portable speakers. The
video quality is great, although the camera quality seems no better
than my previous VGA camera phone. Easy to set up to most email services.
Battery life is good. Easy to use. Over all an excellent handset. Time
will tell if there are any software glitches and how tough the casing

this phone is not that good i only had it 4 a week and a half the camera
is rubbish in the dark and the videos are not good at all, the music
is really distorted, and the radio constantly cuts off, i had to take
the phone back because it was faulty n their was quite a few faults
with it, i advise people not to get the phone, i have just got the samsung
e900 which is miles better.

Cannot complain about this phone at all. Previously had Motorola's and
quite frankly would never go back to them. I cannot fault the camera,
so the review slating it I suggest you buy a digital camera!!!! Sound
quality is fantastic and the phone is very easy to use. Well worth price
on PAYG. Well done Nokia.
