Nokia 5250 review: Back to basics


They made a promise and kept it. What can we say – nice phone this Nokia 5250, but not an N8. Yeah we know, we need to be respectful and professional. But it's easy to be a jerk to a 100-euro smartphone.

Nokia 5250 Review


The Nokia 5250 is the most budget-friendly smartphone released with the 5xxx branding so far. Without any doubt, this handset is targeting first time smartphone users with its attractive price ($146/€115 without contract), so it doesn't come as a...

Nokia 5250 Review

The Nokia 5250 is a phone I would recommend to anyone thinking of buying it. It packs in entertainment features that few phones can compare with. With a price tag of US$145, it is worth getting it with the free Nokia Ovi Music Unlimited subscription in...

Nokia 5250


Quite why the Nokia 5250 carries an old-style model name like this is puzzling. Nokia changed the naming convention for its phones about 6 months ago, which perhaps indicates that the 5250 has spent some time stuck in development.

Each of Nokia's touchscreen phones are getting bigger and better. Every new model introduced in the market combines a host of amazing new elements. Nokia has always been known for introducing the best gadgets in the market and with the invention of...

Nokia to build affordable touch phone. His best 4 of the iPhone, which burns a hole in your wallet. If you did not like the miser 5250, and go on to buy a new Nokia N8. I do not know why Android phones, like Samsung and Sony Ericsson Galaxy are expensive.

Nokia 5250 Review - Symbian^1 stripped-down


Since Nokia 5800 XpressMusic was launched on the market back in November 2008, Symbian S60 5th Edition was the main mobile platform the Finnish manufacturer has focused on. Recently, however, Nokia has shifted its priorities to the latest Symbian^3 and...

In addition to its low price, the smartphone features good audio quality and loudspeaker performance, as well as an excellent web browser, which is only dragged down by the slow EDGE connectivity. The high battery life is also something worth...

Dubbed as a Symbian^1 smartphone, Nokia 5250 is inferior to many feature-phones in terms of performance and capabilities. There's no document viewer, no YouTube client, no Wi-Fi connectivity, no 3G or GPS. The 2-megapixel camera is also not something...

Nokia 5250 is definitely the less featured Symbian smartphone ever built by the Finnish manufacturer. Even though Nokia stripped the phone from all the “expensive” features specific to Symbian smartphones so it can fit the device into the low-end...

Nokia 5250 Review


"The Nokia 5250 is a touchscreen music phone with a whole bunch of delicious musical treats."

With a 2.8-inch screen and 2-megapixel camera, it's not intended to replace your digital camera. Set to retail for around around £95, it certainly offers a lot for a music-lover on a budget.

Nokia 5250


We're all for budget smartphones, but every smartphone needs 3G. The 5250 might make a decent music player, but with fast connectivity, we're not holding much hope for this model.

The price of smartphones is plummeting and we're not sure you can launch a 2G phone these days and hope to compete with the Androids on offer from HTC and LG. The lack of 3G will be felt even more keenly because this phone runs of Nokia's Series 60...
