Nokia 5500 review

 

Nokia proves you can be smart and sporty

Smartphone functionality ; Sports tracking ; Weather and bump-restistance

Poor battery life ; Occasionally sluggish OS ; Not 3G

A great little sports phone. The only real disappointment is the battery life.

A Phone for Exercise : Nokia Sport 5500

 

Now I must admit that exercise is not one of my favourite subjects but I'm not averse to taking my mobile phone for a walk.

Mobile phones come in a variety of styles with collections of specific features that are designed to appeal to a particular market sector. For example the Nokia 5500 model, also known as Sport, is aimed at the more energetic and health conscious...

It seems we've been bombarded of late with music mobiles and cameraphones - all claiming to replace our favourite gadgets. But with the market rapidly saturating, manufacturers are increasingly looking towards creating niche areas to expand into.

Nokia 5500 Sport

 

Can Nokia's new sports phone give your thumbs a decent workout?

Not a bad little gamer's phone, with a few nice touches, but you'll need to be into the more sweaty variety of gaming to really get the most out of it

Actively Simple'- Nokia 5500 Review

 

A ruggedised phone that still manages to pack in the features and yet remain simple to use'Scott Goodacre checks out the new rugged mobile from Nokia to see if it really is the jack of all trades.

Nokia 5500 Sport

 

It's splashproof, it's tough, give it a smack and it'll read you your text messages. The 5500 is also the smallest Symbian smartphone Nokia has ever made…

Solid build and packed with features like a decent camera, music player and sports log, with a distinct design

Its rugged build means it has a relatively small screen for a smartphone

A genuinely tough and compact handset with a hatful of features to appeal to sporting or outdoor people.

Krisse takes a look at the Nokia 5500 Sport. Is it a feature phone or is it a smartphone? Yes.

Smaller than a smartphone! Smarter than a dumb phone! Is it a bird? is it a plane? No, it's... the Nokia 5500 What's this? Surely it can't be a smartphone, it's too small and light!
