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...

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 X5-01 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.

With a good build quality coupled with 3G connectivity, the Nokia X5 is a solid messaging/social networking phone at its price. It is also great for someone looking for a good QWERTY phone in a diminutive form factor, as well as someone looking for a...

It's not the first square device that we've seen from Nokia, last year's US-only Nokia 7705 Twist is a similar size and specification, but the X5-01 is a more conventional slider rather than a rotator. There are some other similar devices around, such...

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...

"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

 

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...

User-friendly and comfortable to type on

Compact design, comfortable keypad, excellent audio quality

Bit chubby, earpiece needs to be placed correctly to be heard, average camera, no GPS, no video call camera
