  3. which is better at browsing the internet? And does the nokia 5530 have a front camera for video calling?

  4. Nokia 5530 xpess music is a cool set! It’s stylish looking with some great features. Nokia E72 is also very handy. One of my cousin use this set. But I think this handset suits the officials. I am planning to change my set and definitely Nokia is my first priority. I was searching for the reviews and got this site. Really the detail discussion about each sets helped me a lot. I have bookmarked this site.

  5. I have the 5530 and it rocks (literally.) You will keep this phone long after your contract has ended as an mp3 player. The sound is better than my Creative Zen. It does not have a front camera. The touch screen works beautifully but for heavy texters stick to a phone with a physical qwerty keyboard. The touch keys are just too small for fast thumb typing. It does not have GPS but buying your own bluetooth GPS adapter costs $20. The Wifi works great. My calls with Fring are flawless. The only down side to this phone is the camera — very low quality pics, and I haven’t found a fix even with custom firmware. Hacking or custom firmware is a must for this phone. It really doesn’t show it’s true capabilities until you have it. The new C6 ports are the fastest for me (search “5530 CFW C6”.) Also it’s very easy to scratch and won’t stand up to dropping. I got a vertical flip case on ebay and it works great. Get an anti-glare screen protector too because you can’t see the screen in sunlight.
