Test: Nokia 5630 XpressMusic

With the 5630 XpressMusic, Nokia expanded its range of music phones. It’s a compact smartphone with S60 UI.
Say: The mobile phone can be extended with additional software, supports Nokia’s Internet services Ovi including the N-Gage gaming platform, and of course the music store. It is not quite as easy to use, but offers the possibility to adapt to, that the user must rarely break in the width of the menu.
The music player can be controlled through buttons left on the housing, the home screen can display up to 20 contacts and image. As for the E-series models is Nokia also here on compactness: this is only 12 mm thick 5630, little space for operating elements remains vice versa under the 2.2-inch display of 240 x 320 pixels. Ordinary equipment, fair price
The curved keypad is easy to use, but in addition to the five way navigation control buttons require a steady hand. About the sound quality of the player nothing reliable settled in the noise of the exhibition hall of the MWC in Barcelona say. What brings in Nokia equipment in the 83 grams light housing is neat and really fair for the price.
Only the GPS receiver for navigation is missing, otherwise the phone offers fast Internet via wireless LAN, UMTS HSDPA network and also HSUPA for fast data transmission with theoretically 2 Mbit/s. In addition a 3.2-megapixel camera with two LEDs flash replacement.
Pros: good music player with dedicated buttons; 3.5 mm jack for headset; fast Internet access via WiFi, HSDPA and HSUPA; 4 GB memory card included; Micro-USB connector; 3.2-megapixel camera; Bluetooth
Cons: small control buttons; Front shows fingerprints easily
