Nokia Mobile 5130 Xpress Music has a really great overall design if you look at the front side of this phone. What makes this phone awesome is the dots or textured area around the screen, left and right. And if you take a look at the shinny blue trimming that wraps up the whole side of the phone, it looks really elegant on the whole body. The D-pad also looks really strong on the center of the device.
Released 2009, February, Nokia Mobile 5130 Xpress Music features some basic and standard functionality, such as: Stereo FM radio, USB, MP4/H.263/H.264 player, MP3/WMA/eAAC+ player, Organize, Flash Lite 3.0, and Predictive text input.
Unfortunately, Nokia Mobile 5130 Xpress Music doesn’t support 3G, WLAN, GPS, Infrared port, and Symbian operating system, so all the applications or games across the Symbian system cannot be played with this phone. That’s too bad.
Multimedia and Entertainment
Since we all know that this phone is designed as a music phone, the Loudspeaker and 3.5mm jack automatically have been injected to the device.
There have been arguments around the users of Nokia Mobile 5130 Xpress Music that the sound quality of this phone is so much better than Nokia C2-01. The other users also say that Nokia C2-01 has much better sound quality than Nokia Mobile 5130 Xpress Music. So it's always great to listen to the objective comments from users, which are usually honest.
But the great thing is the java version of this phone. Providing java platform MIDP 2.1 version, it is guaranteed all the applications or games across java platform are available to play with this phone. Well, that’s because MIDP 2.1 is the highest version of java platform for nowadays cell phone, while MIPD 2.0 is still the standard of cell phone.
If you feel that the 30 MB internal memory and 1 GB external memory are not really big to keep all of your media files inside the phone, you can also upgrade the external memory up to 16 GB.
Interface and Functionality
With the support of 256K colors screen quality, all the photos, videos, games, applications or anything will be presented beautifully in the 240 x 320 pixels screen resolution, which is pretty big for standard cell phone.

It is stated that Nokia Mobile 5130's battery life can last up to 288 hours in stand-by mode, 6 hours in talk time, and 21 hours in music play.
But it is worth mentioning to you if you are planning to buy this phone at the nearest shops that Nokia’s weakness has always been about the battery life. Its battery life works really great and normal in the first period, but long after the usage, maybe around 4 – 5 months, its battery depreciates really faster and leave you with the fat battery that can only last around 20 – 40 minutes each day.
So that’s why, I always recommend you to buy Nokia phones in a new condition. But if you aim for the used product, you must always buy the original battery from Nokia’s shop, which provides the best quality of battery life.
Nokia Mobile 5130 Xpress Music is sold 3 different case covers, Red, Blue, White Aqua (T-Mobile exclusive), so pick your favorite color and you’re good to go.
