Nokia X5-01 review


Don't let the Nokia X5-01's pink exterior fool you; it's a seriously good music phone.

At £144, the Nokia X5-01 has to compete against Android smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy 5, the Galaxy Pop and the Dell XCD28, and buyers looking for an inexpensive smartphone may prefer those other options. However, music is the Nokia's real...

Nokia X5 Preview


Strangely square-shaped, the Nokia X5 comes with a full slide-out Qwerty keyboard hidden on its underside. The Nokia X5 features a 5-megapixel camera (LED flash, 4x digital zoom) and a music player supporting…

Nokia X5 Review


"The square-shaped Nokia X5 brings a 5-megapixel camera, full Qwerty keyboard and social networking to the table."

On board memory weighs in at a rather meagre 200MB but the Nokia X5's microSD card slot can take cards of up to 32GB capacity, so you'll not be stuck for space.

Nokia X5-01 review: Round the square


On occasion Nokia will experiment with form factor and shape. The Nokia X5-01 is the kind of phone that might just leave you wondering. Is it having a bad slider day or a great square day? No, the Nokia X5 is better than that. It's a neat and chubby...

No GPS receiver ; No office document editing ; Small, low-resolution screen ; Non-hot-swappable microSD card under the battery ; Fixed focus camera ; Poor video recording ; No camera lens protection ; No DivX or XviD video support out-of-the-box ; No...

The squarish Nokia X5-01 is way more than just another square-shaped mobile phone. It’s a smartphone, a messenger, a music player, you name it.

Nokia X5


Nokia's X-Series music phones are about to prove Huey Lewis and The News correct, settling once and for all that it is indeed hip to be square.

Its curved edges and bright colours make the X5 as cute as a button, and its square shape certainly gives the phone a unique style unlike the vast majority of new phones we see today. There's no word yet on a timeline for an Australian release, but...

Nokia X5-01 Smartphone Reviewed


This Nokia X5 review takes a look at the bold move Nokia made in designing this Nokia X-series messaging and music optimized smartphone which features a wide selection of vibrant colors.

The Nokia X5-01 is certainly a phone you will need to get used to as it does not quite fit the norm as far as physical design goes. This is a phone you either love or hate. There is no in between.
