    :: Pros ::
    1) Great Music with Good bundled earphones.
    2) Looks very attractive. (Red Color is the most sought after in the market.)
    3) Amazing/awesome battery backup. (I heard, played, captured songs, games,photos the whole day but still my mobile battery level was full.


    :: Cons ::
    1) 2 MP Camera is very good but doesnt have a flash.
    2) Prone to fingerprints.



    If you want the best mobile in around 6,000 INR (With 2 GB Mem. Card) then look no further and blindly go for Nokia 5130 Xpress Music.

    I buyed this 2 days ago. Battery backup is very bad. It drains very fast. have to charge daily. Speaker sound is very low as compared to non music editions like 3110c which i owned previously. Its a bit slow too.

    Actually I too thought of buying the phone but the shopkeepers didn't care to show the phone telling that many customers returned it because they found some problems with it like lack of flash, somewhat bulky, low battery backup and is somewhat old now for buying and lacks new technologies like 3G. Some other reasons were there as well.

    If you can increase your budget by 1k from that if Nokia 5130 then go for Samsung SGH L700. You can read the detail specifications in this thread. I have bought it. I haven't posted any pics of the phone yet because I am not finding any other yet....It is a very good phone and I recommend you to buy it. :)

    Ya the phone is awsome...:razz::razz::razz:

    BUT the battery backup is very bad..

    it lasts only 10 hr on standby.
    the battery drains doing nothing which is very bad.

    If any one had any solution, please post.

    Updating can fix it for only 10 to 12 days and there after it again falls.....

    My handset gives battery backup of one and half day (average) easily on standby. :O

    Dinbhar gane suno, photo nikalo par battery hai k khatm hi nahi hoti. :p
    Camera clarity is not that bad as well.
    Great sound clarity.

    5,500 me aur kya chahiye ?

    @amitdhanuka: Standby of 10 hrs?? It can't be. It gave me a backup of 1 day on standby mode(and some phone calls). Yes but the battery drains out when heavy taks like taking pics and listening music is done. But apart from that there is not even a single flaw!!

    @power_8383: Yeah you are right. :p

    Amazing phone for its price. I bought it for my wife last month but I am currently using it myself as my 5800 has gone back for repairs.
    Tried to use my old N70 first as a backup phone but then tried my wife's 5130 and never looked back at the N70.

    The best part of the phone is how fast it is.. just try loading the inbuilt Opera Mini....opens in less than a couple of seconds. My N70 took almost 30 seconds to launch Opera mini !!

    Battery backup is not that great as I had thought.... but is not bad either.
    And with firmware 6.93, photo taking speed has increased tremendously.... you would be excused for thinking its a different phone if you are used to taking photos on the same phone with an earlier firmware.
