Nokia 5220 XpressMusic - Pocket-lint

 

A happy little music phone, that doesn't really do much else

Light, interesting design, music buttons

Out of date from a hardware point of view

Overall the Nokia XpressMusic 5220 is a satisfying music phone. It does all the things that Nokia have been doing for years.

Nokia 5220 XpressMusic review

 

A great quality music mobile for a bargain price

Good quality music player ; Dedicated music player controls on outside ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; 512MB MicroSD card supplied ; Unusual asymmetrical slimline design ; 2-megapixel camera ; FM radio ; Decent set of applications included

No 3G ; No Wi-Fi ; Camera is average quality with no flash or autofocus ; No GPS ; Limited onboard storage ; No smartphone OS

Capable of a fine audio performance, Nokia's 5220 XpressMusic strikes the right notes for a budget music mobile

Nokia 5220 XpressMusic is impossible not to remember – its appearance doe not resemble to other models from Nokia or other manufacturers. The phone has an asymmetric shape that catches our eye. Such a bright, bold and memorable design clearly says that...

Nokia 5220 XpressMusic review

 

It may lack the high-end specs and the touch-screen of its more recognised sibling, the 5800, but the Nokia 5220 XpressMusic is a welcome addition to the family.…

The Nokia 5220 XpressMusic delivers on the musical fronts with a good music player and the inclusion of a 3.5mm headset port

The disappointing camera is heightened by the fact that there is instant access to Flickr

As a music phone, the Nokia 5220 XpressMusic hits all the right notes, and its price tag also appeals. However, as an all-rounder it's left wanting.

Nokia 5220 XpressMusic review

 

We review the Nokia 5220 XpressMusic, Nokia's asymmetrical music mobile to see just how it shapes up

High quality music player ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; Unusual asymmetric slimline design ; Loud volume for speaker and headphones ; Dedicated music keys ; Decent additional features for budget phone ; 512MB MicroSD card included

Low grade 2-megapixel camera ; Supplied earphones are average ; Small screen for browsing ; Low cost budget feel ; Poor quality video capture

Nokia adds a design twist to its lower range XpressMusic handset but still delivers a fine music player performance

Seems like Nokia couldn't be more serious about music than it is today " while their first music-centric offerings didn't have dedicated sound processors and couldn't boast dazzling audio performances, its contemporary range is all different. Building...

The factor they deemed most important when creating the Nokia 5220 XpressMusic was design, which is no surprise considering that originally it was schemed as a counter to Sony Ericsson's Walkman series. Quirky casing lines and unparalleled design you...
