Untitled[edit]

  • But... Which processor does it have?! It is nowhere to be found, not even in the poor phones official product page. Everything, EXCEPT the processor is described. LOL!
  • i found the processor. based on what the java benchmarks say... they say it's an ARM9 clocked at 216 Mhz with 32 mb of system ram —Preceding unsigned comment added by Someperson15 (talkcontribs) 01:43, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
Yup! This is incomplete. Some leaflets say that it has a dedicated processor for audio. And another thing is there has been a proliferation of 5310 Clones made in China (Should I say piracy? because really I don't care about whose pirated or original)(some even makes use of the original battery and charger of the 5310). They have interfaces that mimics the original 5310 (including functional PLAY,NEXT,PREVIOUS buttons) but does not have compatibility with applications and games made for Nokia.Triadwarfare (talk) 13:14, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Consistency Errors[edit]

There is something suspicious about this article. I bet this is written by an amateur with nothing to do with his life... There are A LOT of consistency errors here like in the main article there's a mention about a 3 Megapixel camera and 1GB internal memory which in reality is only there is a 2 megapixel camera and only a 30 MB internal memory from the features table. I think there needs to be a full re-editing in this article...Triadwarfare (talk) 16:31, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you 192.75.48.150 for fixing these consistency errors. Someone's been vandalizing this article and I thank you for re-editing it Triadwarfare (talk) 16:36, 24 July 2008 (UTC)


This article indicates that there is an FM Transmitter built into the phone. I have yet to find this feature in the phone or documentation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.221.123.181 (talk) 17:51, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you are right. This article says the phone can play mp4 files, yet I have this phone, and i have to convert my videos to 3gp format in order for it to work --Liam.thomas64 (talk) 05:09, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Also most sources I have seen (no, I haven't recorded where) say it (5310) is factory rated at 4GB capacity (MicroSD) but have seen others have success with 8GB, though with some inconsistencies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.68.11.136 (talk) 04:31, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

From an owner[edit]

I've got this phone and I just thought I'd add what I know of it (I'm a real noob with writing in wikipedianese so I didn't want to go mess up the actual page). Anyway, I found out (AFTER I bought the phone) that its camera-lens-cover-plate lacks any seals, so any dust and other shit that's in your pocket gets in under the cover, making your pictures filled with small blurry spots. It also has construction that makes it impossible for a repairman to get to large parts of the interior - or that's what the guy who fixed it told me. Also it might (with older software) reboot suddenly if you listen to pira... ahem... downloaded music. The little flap that covers the USB port is also poorly designed, making it really difficult to get the plug right. And finally, the headphones that come with the phone have a button/clip you can stick onto your shirt to - I dunno - steady the cable(?). The button has another function, though, - one that isn't in the manual - if you hold it down the phone activates the speech-recognition-mike in the clip, and then calls the number the name of which it thinks you spoke. This is really disturbing, as the button might get between, say, the strap of your backpack and you. Then the phone calls some random number, in my case it has been friends a couple times and once the police!!!

Well, I hope this helped you... cheers

Dear owner ^[edit]

Camera is useless crap, use a point-n-shoot if you have to. Most of the phone, except for the screen, lacks dust seals, actually. The phone isn't hard to take a part, just need a spudger and a T8 torx bit, and KIRFers made replacement parts ubiquitous on fleabay. The music player reboots are a firmware bug Nokia never bothered to fix, along with the fact that your music library is saved to RAM (not flash,) and therefore lost upon reboot. Kind of a problem when you have 22GB of music... Phone WILL take 16GB and 32GB microSDHC cards, by the way, but USB transfer is extremely slow with 16GB cards, and won't work at all with 32GB cards (says you have to format it on Windows, won't even mount on Linux.) Easy to get around with a card reader. And LOCK YOUR PHONE IF IT'S POCKET DIALING PEOPLE. Herp derp. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.103.216.217 (talk) 14:30, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

iSync[edit]

This model DOES NOT support syncing of contact etc. through Bluetooth & iSync. I bought this phone thinking that it would have this feature like some of my older, supposedly obsolete, Nokia phones but it did not. There is also a problem with the display developing black spots and lines. At first I thought this was due to my own carelessness but others have experienced this problem as well. I suppose this is why the model was discontinued do quickly; I haven't been able to find it on Nokia's own site. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.80.45.108 (talk) 03:57, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
