Nokia 5300 is a great music phone, but the battery is utterly short. So we’ve come up with this tips and tricks that can help you save some juice out of your phone. It’s also covers tips to maximize your phone functionality and usability.
Camera Tips: [Updated]
1. Always set the NIGHT MODE when shooting indoors.
2. Set the White Balance to Daylight – When outdoors (Day) Fluorescent – When indoors
3. For acceptable shots, set the resolution to 800 x 600.
NOTE: Using the camera will put up a big drain on your battery.
Battery Tips: [Updated]
- Don’t always use the camera. Only when needed.
- Set Packet Data Connection to When Needed. Setting can be found on Settings>Connectivity>Packet Data
- Always turn on the Power Saver Feature.
- Turn off your Bluetooth when not in use.
- Turn off screensavers
- Go to Settings > Phone > Operator Selection > Manual and select your operator. This way the phone doesn’t search for a signal all the time and drain the battery out.(Only advisable for network with good signal.)
- Always make sure that the phone has an adequate signal. (If the phone is searching for signals, it drains a big part of the battery)
- I know its fun to play games, but it can decrease your battery so fast.
- Don’t discharge the battery frequently, otherwise the battery will decrease it’s performance.
- Battery maintenance, it is recommended to discharge the battery every 30 charge cycles or once a month.
- The best of all, carry an extra battery if you’re a heavy user.

How to Create Playlist on Nokia 5300, 5310, and 5610
It’s possible to create a playlist straight on your Nokia 5300, 5310 and 5610. I’ll share this little hack for everyone and here’s the trick.
– You start by emptying the “Favorites” tracklist.
– Then go to the music library, and start adding songs in the order you want them (go to the song, and choose ‘add to favorites’ under Options).
– When all songs are added, go back to Favorites tracklist,
– and start to play it.
– Then finally, in the ‘now playing’ screen, choose Options, show tracks, again ‘Options/save as tracklist’, and give it a name.
Really a long process but a useful hack 🙂
