The Nokia 5320 Xpress Music is a Symbian OS S60 smartphone, released by Nokia in 2008 as a part of their XpressMusic line of portable devices. The phone has a rugged candybar body with outlined keypads. It emphasizes music and multimedia playback. Among its highlights are a dedicated 3D audio chip for better sound quality, 24 hours of music playback, a 3.5 mm audio jack, N-Gage compatibility, and music/gaming keys. At the time of release the phone cost $220 in the U.S., European and Indian Market.
Nokia 5320 has a 2-megapixel still camera with twin LED flash, and a QVGA (320x240) camcorder which films at 15 frames per second. There's a dedicated camera button on the right side of the phone which launches and controls the camera/camcorder application. There is also a lower-resolution secondary camera on the front of the phone which is intended for videophone calls. The camera/camcorder application has some basic settings such as night mode, panorama mode, sequence mode and timer mode.
Nokia Maps 1.2 comes bundled with the phone, but there is no built-in GPS receiver so the user needs a separate Bluetooth GPS unit (either Nokia or third party) if it is to be used for navigation.
The N-Gage application was released for the 5320 a few weeks after its launch, and can be installed directly onto the phone by going to its Games folder and then clicking on the N-Gage icon. The n-gage version in 5320 runs faster than any other n-gage application in other phones at the time of release. This is possibly due to improvements in the app itself, but also perhaps the 5320's much larger amount of free RAM and its newer version of the S60 platform (the 5320 uses S60 3rd FP2, while the N95 and N81 use the older S60 3rd FP1). The app launches more quickly too, there are a few improvements such as a built-in option to e-mail download links to a computer, and it has cured a few glitches including the "screen orientation dance" when launching games.
The exterior of the phone shows it's a music device with its playback controls. The actual audio quality of the 5320 is very good thanks to its dedicated audio chip. The external speaker is mono but with fairly good quality and very loud sound. The 5320 has a memory card slot compatible with microSDHC cards up to 8 gigabytes officially. The 5320 has a 3.5mm headphone socket on the bottom of the device so any headphones can be used. The phone supports A2DP and AVRCP Bluetooth profiles which can also be used with most wireless Bluetooth stereo headphones. The music player app contains an eight band graphic equaliser featuring a number of presets can be added with more custom presets. The new "Music Search" application of 5320, which recognizes a track or artist by voice and starts playing it. Music Search can be activated by holding down the My Own button on the front of the phone.
The 5320 includes Nokia Music Store, and our European SIM-free sales package included a voucher for five free tracks from the shop. This may not be present in the sales package though as packages tend to vary greatly from one market to another, and over time too. The 5320 also comes with the Nokia Podcasting application built-in, which allows access to a searchable database as well as a browseable directory of podcasts. Podcasts can be subscribed to and set to download automatically at certain times of day and/or on certain dates. There's a built-in FM radio which is compatible with Nokia's internet database of radio presets, so all the station names in a particular location can be downloaded. It is also compatible with Visual Radio and Radio Data System.
The 5320 contains the latest version of the S60 web browser, which is based on the same WebKit core as the Safari browser. Nokia 5320 also supports Flash Lite 3.0, so you can directly watch Flash video, like browsing YouTube video sharing site. Webmail can be accessed through the web browser, and the messaging application also sends and receives e-mail using POP3 or IMAP4 accounts.
