Nokia 5220 XpressMusic


Nokia introduced a new music-enabled mobile phone as addition to its XpressMusic range. Additional features of the Nokia 5220 XpressMusic include up to 24 hours playback time, dedicated XpressMusic keys and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Excellent speaker quality; free music; user-friendly; stylish; relatively cheap

No 3G; lacks latest features; overly simplistic in some areas; mediocre camera; unimpressive voice recorder

Also, the phone is relatively ­inexpensive. In short, it raises the roof but does not break the bank and is simplistically stylish.
