Nokia 5500 Sport review: Smartphone for active lifestyle

 

If Nokia 5500 Sport doesn't manage to win you with its combination of a modern Symbian and a resistant body, you will surely give in to its touchpad control, its numerous functions that help you enhance your physical condition, or to its incoming SMS...

Nokia 5500's surface is a true mosaic of materials of various kinds. Its keypad as well as the area around the display is almost entirely rubber, which creates an interesting contrast as the edges are made of glossy steel. Beneath the silver frame...

Review: Nokia 5500 Sport

 

Sam put his running shoes on and got active for the review of the Nokia 5500 Sport. While it has interesting features like a pedometer and 3D motion sensing, are they actually useful or just gimmicks? Read Sam's review to find out.

To be honest with you, I was not too impressed when I first started using the 5500.

Nokia 5500 Sport

 

Nokia say that the 5500 Sport should be available from Q3 2006 in a sober "Black" version or more funky "Grey" version (with brightly colours stripes!). The Nokia 5500 Sport should cost around 300 Euro before tax and subsidy.

Nokia 5500 sport

 

The Nokia 5500 Sport is shock, water, and dust resistant. With the integrated digital music player you can listen to FM radio or MP3s to stay energized. Snap photos using the 2-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom

The Stainless steel enfolded body, the keypad, all keys and last butnot least the battery cover are well made. No visible gaps, no faults.The keyboard - made of soft rubber - itself is a little stiff. This isbecause of his water and dustproof design....

Nokia 5500 Sport

 

After appeasing the musically inclined with their Nseries Music Edition and Xpress Music phones, Nokia seeks out greener pastures. Equipping business users with the Eseries range and bringing out the director in you with high-end camera phones like the...

This phone can't be directly compared to any other. The only other sport-focussed phone (other than the Nokia predecessors to this model) in the market is the Sony Ericsson W710i, but this is the only phone with a built-in pedometer that enables a...

Nokia 5500 review

 

Nokia proves you can be smart and sporty

Smartphone functionality ; Sports tracking ; Weather and bump-restistance

Poor battery life ; Occasionally sluggish OS ; Not 3G

A great little sports phone. The only real disappointment is the battery life.

Nokia 5500 Sport

 

Designed to withstand plenty of mistreatment, the Nokia 5500 Sport features a shock-proof and splash-proof casing targeted at the more active consumer...

Shock-proof and splash-proof casing, Instant swap key, Sports mode, Text-to-Speech capabilities, MP3 playback, Tapping functions, Excellent features list, S60 operating system

Keypad and controls are a mixed bag, Poor battery life

The 5500 Sport is a surprise package. It offers a number of excellent features, headed by casing for the more active consumer as well as sports and music modes. Importantly, it also happens to represent excellent value for money at this price.

It's aimed at outdoor types but does Nokia's 5500 Sport get a podium finish?

Expert review by: Jeremy Roche (cnet.com.au)

Nokia 5500 Sport

 

The Finnish mobile giant takes aim at the active-minded consumer with its latest Nokia 5500 Sport handset.

Sturdy and water-resistant ; Compact design ; Bluetooth 2.0 and USB for fast data transfers

Small screen for a smartphone ; Rubberised keypad not separated ; 2-megapixel camera produces shoddy results

Although the fitness features seem gimmicky to us, we would not hesitate recommending the mid-range as a well-built, sturdy phone, as long as you don't need larger-than-life keys. Nokia's Series 60 smartphone operating system might be overkill for this...
