"Excellent" audio on the Nokia 5730

The XpressMusic range also features the 5800 and 5530

A new entry in the Nokia XpressMusic range could impress those recycling mobile phones for an audio-playing device, if one expert is to be believed.

This week TechRadar's Phil Lattimore put the 5730 to the test and noted that following previous devices - like the similarly branded 5800 and 5530 - the Finnish manufacturer had done little to change the gadget's integrated player.

However, he explained this is not a problem as the overall performance of the model in this mode is "excellent", adding that with Wi-Fi, HSDPA, A-GPS and a standard 3.5 mm headphone socket there is much to like about it.

"Sound quality is terrific for a mobile phone, with a tremendous depth to the soundscape, great balance across the range of frequencies and thumping bass to round it off," Mr Lattimore concluded.

Nokia has also equipped the 5730 with a touchscreen, slide-out qwerty keypad and 3.2-megapixel camera. It is available from carriers including O2 and Orange now.
