Nokia 5140i


The renewed screen is 128x128 pixels (28x28 mm), and a protective glass is a bit toned. Good quality of the picture is not provided even in spite of the 65K supported. The model looses to modern devices considerably in this parameter. Two factors tell...

The rugged design of the Nokia 5140i will handle the rough and tumble of outdoor adventures or even just everyday life. If you want a phone that can go the distance and don't need bluetooth this is a contender.

Nokia 5140i


Despite the fairly basic specifications, we rather like the Nokia 5140i. Even if you're not interested in sporting activities, this is a good value handset that should survive real life and do everything that most people will ever need.
