ITReviews reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic and writes:
“Battery life was actually pretty good. From a full charge and forcing the screen to stay on I got eight full hours of music. Providing you don’t need to have headphones glued to your ears every waking hour, it should get you through the day… As a phone the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic is rather nice and certainly has plenty of features. It also has some serious plus points as a music player, not least good battery life. But the lack of a 3.5mm headset and the small internal memory let it down.”

PCworld reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic (rating: 77/100) and writes:
“But the music features really make the phone shine. The music player, which is easily accessible through the unit’s home page or via the external music controls, is very user-friendly. You can quickly scroll through your music library, which is organized by artists, albums, genres, composers, or playlists…As a phone, the 5300 works well. Its rubbery exterior makes it comfortable to hold, and it slides open nicely with one hand.”

Forbes reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic and writes:
“Sound quality over the included headphones is as good as an iPod. One battery charge played bass-heavy D.C. hardcore music on top headphone volume for over 11 hours before I fell asleep and it eventually died. And the 5300 wins major points for having a built-in FM radio, a feature many competing music phones lack.”

PCmag reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic(rating: 4/5) and writes:
“Nokia’s phones generally have solid reception and sound quality, and this one doesn’t break the mold. The earpiece is loud, and sounds even louder because of the cell’s very trebly voice quality—some might consider it harsh…The 5300 stores music on a MicroSD card of up to 2GB in size. Unfortunately, you have to take the back cover off to replace the card, so it’s a good thing that it also connects to PCs and Macs with a standard mini-USB cable. Songs take about 5 seconds each to copy, and you can assign them as ringtones.”

LaptopMag reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic (rating: 4/5) and writes:
“The 5300 is also a semi-smart phone, running the Series 40 OS and equipped with a 1.3-megapixel camera/video recorder, voice dialing/command, e-mail, and instant messaging. Voice quality on T-Mobile’s EDGE network was crisp and had plenty of volume, but the 3.2-hour talk time is surprisingly miserly considering the music-play time…Pros: External music controls, Can multitask with music playing, Up to 12 hours of music playback, Loud external speaker. Cons: Buried Bluetooth controls, Poor stereo earbuds, Camera button too recessed.”

TrustedReviews reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic (rating: 6/10) and writes:
” took a lot of the available space for this review to look at the music capabilities of this phone because that is what Nokia is talking up. In all honesty I can’t recommend it over other music phones I’ve seen, or over a dedicated music player and its low overall score reflects this. However I do like it as a handset. Its ergonomics and general ‘usability’ are very good, it has a superb screen, is small in the pocket, and I like the slider format a lot. In terms of the latter this handset has probably knocked away the last chink in my ant-slider feelings.”

CNET Australia reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic (rating: 7.4/10) and writes:
“Nokia claims the battery lasts just over nine days on standby or 3.2 hours of talk. We managed just under 10 hours for MP3 playback and a little over 3 hours of talk with heavy use, which is very respectable. The 5300 XpressMusic does what it sets out to achieve well, that is, a mobile phone with extensive audio capabilities, but as a phone only, there’s nothing too compelling about it.”

Mobileburn reviews the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic (rating: 86%) and write:
“The keypad on the 5300 is one of the best out there. The keys are large and the tactile feedback is excellent…There are a couple of things that make the S40 interface a lot more user-friendly than S60 devices. Firstly, you can change the font size and apply it to your message screen or even phonebook screen. This can make things much easier for people with less than perfect eyesight, and the difference is especially recognizable when you type in Chinese.”
