nokia 5630- rich with features and very poor in durability

 I'm using this phone for almost 8 moths. it's so ergonomic and so comfy to use.it'll surely fit every pocket. the screen is slightly on the smaller side but seems ok,but it's not very vibrant. All features are worth and though it had few bugs with music player those were rectified with firmware update. Overall a great phone.  Things become a nightmare if u put ur cell to rough use or had it long enough (say 7-8 months).The all plastic design is not only cheap but it'll put u into trouble.In my usage (i'm so careful in handling cellphones) i had given it for service almost 5 times which is so bad for phone(i dint drop my cell down even once).The issues were related to screen and keys.The keypad is "so messaging friendly" but again it's not durable and your entire keypad gets cramped and u end up with keys getting struck.(provided u r a heavy texter). So,though the phone s quite cheap and feature rich it utterly fails in durability. U can hang around with it, "problem free" for only a few months and problems will start filling your pocket as days go on..If durability is not a concern for u then this phone is for u!

Comments on 5630

So far this the best phone i bought. . . . it has everything i want for a cellphone. . music player, internet browsing and can download latest java games. . . although it can play n-gage games but i never use it. . . The most feature I like in this phone is the wi-fi feature. . . i like the speed of the processor. . .it is the best cellphone for me even thought that N series and E series are better in terms of features. .  Overall this phone is the best from physical aspect to the actual features itself. . . I recommend this phone for everyone who wants a slim cellphone but the features are great

Nokia 5630 XpressMusic runs on a powerful ARM11 processor at 600 MHz and features a 2.2” TFT QVGA display with 16 million colors. It features microSDHC memory slot and stereo Bluetooth. Also on-board is a 3.5mm jack, which is one of the must-have features on a music phone, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, also capable of recording 640x480 video at 15 frames per second

slim performer straight away

Atlast we have a smart phone from nokia tat's neither too heavy and nor too costly.Branded under the name xpress music trully this phone is a top class performer in music.Excellent quality music can be experienced in head phones.But that's not where the player stops.it's the only 2nd mobile with symbian s60 latest edition which it borrowed form its touchscreen partner 5800.Wat more? it ships in with a 4gb microsd card.I've gone through reviews and specs in many web pages and have summarised the pros n cons..
Am on due to buy this phone in 2 weeks.(it costs an approx 199 euros before tax n subsidaries)
Stop reading too many reviews.Go, buy a 5630 tday.i'm sure t'll never let u down any time. And u'll surely fall in love with it's ultra slim design.
