Nokia 5228 GSM Smartphone


The initial MSRP (without tax) for the model is EUR 139, and Germany is the first country to have received it. The device was originally developed for a German operator and will be available on a limited number of markets only. However, it is not the...

Nokia 5233


An affordable price-tag, smooth UI, big screen and Symbian OS are some things that make the Nokia 5233 a very good budget phone.

Inexpensive ; Large Screen ; Touch UI Operates Smoothly ; Very Good Video Recording ; A-GPS Support & Free Ovi Maps

Inconsistent Touch UI ; Camera isn't Suited for Still Photography ; Music Player Outputs Low Volume

The Nokia 5233 is available in India for Rs. 6,500 and that's not a price I can argue with from any perspective. It might not be a powerhouse but it does enough to make it a very good buy.

Nokia 5233 Reviewed: Budget Touch-Screen Device


The Nokia 5233 is a budget smartphone that offers great audio quality and decent hardware specs. There are a lot of important features missing like GPS, Wi-Fi and 3G but then again it is priced very low.

Nokia 5233


Touchscreen smartphone on a tight budget

Good design; fits well in your palm, good touchscreen response, excellent audio quality (headphones), full-fledged smartphone OS with multi-tasking ability, very well priced

Build quality unsatisfactory, smallish display has poor sunlight visibility, bare bones in terms of features and bundle

Nokia 5233 Review : Camera (Image Samples)


So the Nokia 5233 has a Camera. Granted it's not exactly the best camera we've seen on a device. The 5233 is a more budget-y version of the 5230 without GPS or...
