Connectivity and Battery Life
Connectivity and Battery Life:
The Nokia 5630 XpressMusic sports a range of connectivity options including GPRS Class 32, HSCSD, EDGE Class 32, 3G – HSDPA / HSUPA. It also sports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g with universal PnP. It also has Bluetooth v2.0 with the A2DP profile for Bluetooth Stereo headset support. The WiFi adapter connected easily to protected and unprotected networks and the browsing speed after connection was ample if not stellar. I also found that the data connectivity went off without a hitch, and Edge + 3G connections allowed for suitable browsing.
The device is powered by the BL-4CT 860 mAh Li-Ion battery which lasts about 1.5 days with normal usage. To maximize the battery life, I would suggest turning off the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth options when not in use and lowering the display brightness. Otherwise the battery worked as advertised with no hiccups along the way.
The phone also comes with a charger, a data cable and a set of stereo headphones with remote. A product manual and software DVD is also included in the retail package. The 4 GB microSD card is the icing on the top of the cake, especially considering that MicroSDHC cards of all sizes are accessible using this excellent "storage" device.
The signal reception on the Nokia 5630 XpressMusic is just like all other Nokia phones – simply awesome. The call quality is pretty great with minimal noise. The speaker volume is also very good as it should be on a music player based unit.
