Nokia 5730 XpressMusic review: Full musical keyboard

14 August 2009
No news is good news and the Nokia 5730 XpressMusic is quite keen to go about humming that tune like it didn’t care. Recruiting Symbian for an entertainment job is nothing new really and no, we’re not surprised...

Ha ha I fgured that so I just went ahead and got the Samsung Focus which is still sueiicffnt for my needs. Upgraded to 16gb of memory. Got it unlocked and with internet sharing I can use the front facing camera on my Ipod which was noticeably better than on the Radar. I'm due for an official upgrade next August so this will meet my needs while I wait to see what T-Mobile will offer in the future.:)

    ruph, 31 Aug 2009How can a music phone not have an FM Transmitter?!?! WHY!!!... moreIf you want good email and apps and trust me if you have good apps you wont get bored EVER, then go for Sony Ericsson arc. If you want good hardware or caemra then N9 it is.

                      Just bought this phone.. Very nice.. the audio (through earphone) also good. This is the 1st time i'm using xpressmusic phone from Nokia.. Most of my music phone was W series from Sony Ericsson.. Feel like Using the N and E series nokia phone.. Love the Qwerty pad.. and the best part this phone charge when USB insert.. if u regularly use the WiFi plz bring along your charger with you.. I give 9/10 for this phone..

                      is it possible the transmitter features enable through firmware update?

                        To Transfer and send videos use the file manager. And I love this phone. One thing about it is the battery life. If you use the wireless lan a lot then you're gonna have to charge the phone before the day ends.

                                    Nice phone with Great features but needs improvements.
                                    Nokia we need full packed firmware for this wonder..
                                    5730XM comes with
                                    Immature firmware, this may kills the phones market range

                                      I wondering - this difference between 5730 and E75 in 'speakerphone test' it's a lot (5-10dB)? I like the E75 design, but I want to hear my phone also.

                                        How can a music phone not have an FM Transmitter?!?! WHY!!!!! I fell in love with the transmitter ever since i got my N85. This will truly completely the phone if they only added it.... =\

                                        Will still buy it for the QWERTY pad and cheaper price.
