Review: Nokia 5300
For what it claims to be, the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic provides a good mix of features for a very reasonable price. As a phone, the 5300 has functionality and features that are on par with other Series 40-based devices. The user interface is highly customizable and can be configured to suit just about all users' needs. While the camera rates only average scores and won't be replacing your digital point-and-shoot any time soon, it is perfectly acceptable for day-to-day image capturing and sharing. The music player works well, is easy to use, and sounds good. When you consider the cost of other MP3 players that have a 1 GB capacity, the $99 price point of the 5300 (with 2-year contract from T-Mobile) makes it a very cost-efficient choice for those looking to combine phone and music player functionalities.
