One might mistake Nokia for a chocolate company with all the candy bar phones they’ve produced over the years! And like chocolate, unwrapping the Noikia 5130 will bring a smile.

The latest in Nokia’s XpressMusic line, the 5130 offers up a full entry-level feature set with the mandatory calculator, alarm and such, but also includes an FM radio, Bluetooth, 2MP camera with video, microSD memory expandability, speakerphone and, yes, a 3.5mm headset jack.

While a good-looking phone, it also has a familiar layout, with a 2 inch, 240 x 144 pixel resolution display resting atop a proven navigation array, followed by an alpha-numeric keypad. It’s simple and easy to use.

The Nokia 5130 offers one-touch, quick access to music, a flagship feature of their Xpressmusic line. Unfortunately, this line of phones in general, and the 5130 specifically, have not innovated enough to set it apart from newcomers which offer more music freedom and more useful features.

That said, the Nokia 5130 is stylish, offers excellent speakers and easy-to-use music playback controls.

For folks looking for to combine their phone with their MP3 player, the Nokia 5130 is worth considering.

The previous Nokia competitor in this category was the 5220 XpressMusic, which we duly reviewed. With an almost identical price tag, it gets its edge from Nokia maps and flight mode. But speaking of edge, the asymmetrical design can be too hard to swallow for some....

For mass appeal there's Nokia 5310 XpressMusic. We guess we just need to pay due respect to the Nokia music bestseller. This phone looks good and does the music right and you have the word of millions on it. It has the same price and similar features and that's a good enough reason for the 5130 to set its hopes high.

More-than-decent device at a very good price

from Softpedia

After getting a little bit bored by the XpressMusic series, I'm finally glad that I gave 5130 model a chance. I was impressed by the quality of its sonic experience, as well as its stylish design. Nokia managed to throw on the market a more-than-decent device at a very good price. I just hope that youngsters are not still disappointed by some older XpressMusic devices and give 5130 a chance, since they will be thrilled...

After getting a little bit bored by the XpressMusic series, I'm finally glad that I gave 5130 model a chance. I was impressed by the quality of its sonic experience, as well as its stylish design. Nokia managed to throw on the market a more-than-decent device at a very good price. I just hope that youngsters are not still disappointed by some older XpressMusic devices and give 5130 a chance, since they will be thrilled.

The Good

The first things I would like to mention here are the nice finishes, the easy-to-handle music controls, excellent music sound, and good shiny plastic that improves the usual XpressMusic design. Also, one of the most important things, Nokia 5130 XpressMusic can be bought for a decent price, while it offers excellent features.

The Bad

I would've liked to see a more decent camera and the possibility to add a better memory card. Even though some higher-capacity cards might work with the device, it doesn't officially offer support for these. I also think that the short microUSB cable that comes with the phone is a joke, as you can only use it while keeping your handset near the USB port.

Awful Awful Phone

In 2 years I have needed to get a new phone 4 times. Each time it was because the phone just locked up and refused to work. Add to that Nokia's awful customer service. I'll never buy another Nokia again.

Pros: - Excellent crisp sound quality - Very good music phone - It's not stated on Nokia's site but cellphone review websites have tested and 16gb Micro SD cards do work on this phone - Very decent price and cheaper than Nokia 5310 - Can film video - Attractive and Fairly small size cellphone. Cons: - Poor camera though it's supposed to be mainly a music phone - Poor video camera quality. - Battery life could be better - Average screen resolution - Small screen - Comes with horrible headset For a music phone it's excellent. For a camera.. not so much. The cellphone produces excellent sound quality as long as you buy a decent headset to listen to the music. In my opinion, the simplicity, attractiveness, and price of the Nokia 5130 XpressMusic phone makes this a pretty good phone. Less
