Nokia 5030 XpressRadio

 

Similar in many ways to the Sony Ericsson R300 Radio, the Nokia 5030 XpressRadio is aimed primarily at emerging markets where the radio is an important source of information and entertainment.

Nokia 5030 XPRESSRADIO

 

Amazing value for money! Torch very useful for camping/reading/map reading in car. From the days when a phone was used to talk to people and send texts, this is magnificent

Default menu item on a new received message is 'delete' so I've lost a few that I thought I was saving! Other than that, it's brilliant

Nokia 5030 XPRESSRADIO

 

Just a simple phone that always works! It gets signal when many other phones fail to connect,and is very easy to get used to

The keypad is a bit little and there is the danger of pressing the wrong key or two at once
