Nokia 5228 X-Factor review


You can blame it on stage fright, but when the lights go up, the Nokia 5228 pales in comparison to rival budget phones. Despite its self-proclaimed star quality, it just doesn't have the X factor to win our vote.

Decent, speedy camera

Tacky appearance ; Sluggish interface ; Not even very X Factor-themed

Nokia 5228 X-Factor


Some of the sales hype says this phone has an excellent camera, I tried it out and found it to be terrible, and to add to this I found the manual to be quite thin and uninformative considering the phones capabilities. 3 hours after I bought this phone...

A good phone for tough situations and for the price!


To start the phone is a Nokia, which is a good point to start. The touch screen is intuitive and very easy to use although trying to start a text from start to finish is quite a lengthy process. The touch screen is quite good as you don't have to tou...
