Nokia 5300 Review

As its name implies, the Nokia 5300 Xpress Music phone is an MP3 phone, an it's a good one at that! Nokia did everything right this time around, delivering a phone that makes good of its name.

First thing you'll notice with the Nokia 5300 are the dedicated music controls. This allows users to play, pause, and navigate through their music library. Volume and camera controls can also be found on the other side of the phone.

The Nokia 5300 is also a slide phone, and Nokia made that work as well. The keypad and soft keys are just the right size and would delight all text messaging teens. It has such a bright screen too, for a small phone.

The music player that comes with the 5300 is almost perfect. You can browse songs by artist, album, genre, and there's even a playlist! Suffice to say the Nokia 5300 is a very good MP3 phone, but it still lacks on some areas.

With just 1.3 MP camera, and no flash, pictures and videos are okay at best. Also, the 5300's case feels like it will break anytime (but it won't!). So better take extra care when handling it.

All in all, Nokia did an excellent job. I would highly recommend the Nokia 5300 Xpress Music phone if you're looking for a good MP3 phone.
