This is a 3G handset with a front-facing camera for video-calling. It is quad-band GSM with EDGE. The main camera is a bit of a let-down. It does have a dedicated side button, but thereafter the good news fades away.
Its maximum resolution is 2-megapixels and quality is mediocre. A twin LED flash helps with low-light photographs but as ever you need to be close to the subject to feel its benefit. There is no autofocus.
The coloured dish photographed under normal household lighting is dull, grainy and lacklustre. Outdoors the chair lacks uniformity of colour and definition is poor. The flowers are good as far as colour reproduction is concerned, but are over exposed.
There is lots of other stuff on this handset including Nokia’s web browser, which performed fairly well at its 3G speeds, QuickOfffice and the Adobe PDF reader for reading documents in a range of formats, plus clock, calculator, calendar, Nokia’s Active Notes for embedding HTML and other multimedia into notes, unit converter, RealPlayer, and a voice recorder. Nokia Maps is here too, but there’s no GPS in the phone.
The 5320 XpressMusic doesn’t break any new ground for music phones but there is lots of software built in. You might want to hold out for a Comes With Music handset, though.
