Nokia 5130 XpressMusic Music Playback

The 5130 features a fairly simple music player.

its got a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack so that you can hear music from your headphones or speakers .

The audio quality of the inbuilt speaker on the phone’s rear is not perfect. It gets a bit choppy at high volume.

there are dedicated music keys on the side

But its pretty loud and you wont miss a call if u set a loud ringtone.

But the audio quality is dynamic and enjoyable when you use the earphones or a set of insanely expensive Bose Speakers


Theres a 2.0 Megapixel Camera at the back which takes still pictures and also records video in 320×240 pixels resolution.
