Nokia 5300 XpressMusic review

 Review: December 2006  
 

Last updated July 2009

Rating: 3 stars

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.



 

Review

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 Bluetooth headset (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 5530.

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.

And and..another thing.. if the phone accidentally slides up whilst in your bag..thats a problem.

Dear All, My wife recently purchased this phone and I was not at all happy with the output of Camera. In the Highest quality mode, the pictures appear to be very unclear, was really dissatisfied. Seemed like clicking a photo from Nokia 6610i! When I change the Camera mode to Night Mode, the picture quality appears to be fine but the camera response goes down the drain... I mean to click a photo in Night mode the object u r clicking need to be really stable. Another bad part is that this phone did not have the Car racing game which is there on Nokia 3230. In fact it does not have any interesting game :-(. Ok Now the good part... the 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. Vinay

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 =] xxxxxxxxxxx

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 is.

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.
