  • Still shots are decent, but not the best, even in low-end standards
  • Given the low price and the features it comes with, this phone is definitely a good buy
  • Personally, I’m happy with my Nokia 5130, having dropped it more than once and still have it perfectly working until now and knowing Nokia releases software updates for it from time to time, I think Nokia really did a good job on this device
  • I’d recommend this to anyone who wants to buy a feature phone but is on a tight budget

      The Nokia 5130 Xpressmusic phone has been around for more than a year now, and a lot of users are happy about it, despite it being just a feature phone. The Nokia 5130 is a GSM phone, and offers only 2g connectivity. For those who browse the internet on their phone often should be content with EDGE connectivity speeds - no 3g here folks. Other connectivity options are Bluetooth 2.

      0 and a micro USB port. Taking a look at hardware, the phone weighs about 88 grams, with a 2″ display with 240×320 resolution. Being an XpressMusic phone, the Nokia 5130 has dedicated media buttons at the right side, while volume control and the SD card slot on the left.

      The keypad is


      good. It isn’t rubbery and doesn’t require too much effort when pressing a button. The Nokia 5130 packs a 2.

      0MP fixed-focus camera, without any kind of flash. Still shots are decent, but not the best, even in low-end standards. Where it stands out though, is in the speaker department.

      Audio output is good despite the absence of stereo speakers, and it has a 3. 5mm headphone jack, so users can use their favorite headphones to listen to music on the phone. The Nokia 5130, despite other claims, can support up to 16GB micro SD cards; I use a 4 GB memory card at present and have tried inserting a 16 GB on it as well.

      My unit handled it perfectly. As an XpressMusic phone,


      • users would expect it to perform well and last in media playing. The Nokia 5130 does, and Nokia claims that it would last 21 hours of music playback.

        I’m not so sure about that claim though, as I haven’t needed to listen to music for 21 hours straight, but i do find the battery life to be quite decent. After almost 8 hours of listening to music with headphones on and some texting, I still had half of the battery charge at the end of the day. As for other media functions, the Nokia 5130 is capable of playing .

        3gp and . mp4(240×320 resolution) video formats, and can read most of the common image formats. The phone is also capable of running java apps,

        although users are limited to those that are less than 1 GB.

        I tried some java games that we’re supposedly in 3d graphics, but the phone wouldn’t open them, saying something like the phone is out of memory. Overall, the Nokia 5130 XpressMusic is a good device. Given the low price and the features it comes with, this phone is definitely a good buy.

        Personally, I’m happy with my Nokia 5130, having dropped it more than once and still have it perfectly working until now and knowing Nokia releases software updates for it from time to time, I think Nokia really did a good job on this device. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants to buy a feature phone but is on a tight budget.
