Nokia 5610 XpressMusic


The Nokia 5610 seems to be a refreshingly different mobile phone - and is pretty stylish as well.

This is the phone you should pick up if you are a hardcore Nokia fan and want an excellent music player, period! Apart from that the 5610 has style, a fast interface and is up to date as far as connectivity is concerned. Its street price is...

Nokia XpressMusic 5610


Nokia's audio-centric XpressMusic 5610 serves as a niche device for those who want a portable jukebox packaged in along with their phone, but without all the bulk of a full-on convergence device like the iPhone. We liked the highly practical...

Sleek and well-built; respectable sound quality and EQ

Software needs a little refinement; poor battery life when used for playing music

Despite some slight software hiccups, Nokia has otherwise done a very neat job tucking a functional PMP into the phone.

Nokia 5610 XpressMusic (T-Mobile)


T-Mobile's latest music phone scores big with its intuitive controls and sharp camera, but a few drawbacks give us pause.

There are two reasons to consider the Nokia XpressMusic 5610 over the 5310: snapping better pictures with your cell phone, and if you particularly like slider designs. It has great call quality and solid battery life, but overall we prefer the sleeker...

Nokia 5610 Xpress Music (red, Unlocked)


Almost a year ago, Nokia released two new Xpress Music phones, the 5610 and the Nokia 5310. Though we only got a few minutes to play with them at the time, we were excited to see both handsets since we had such a good experience with Nokia's original...

The Nokia 5610 Xpress Music offers a satisfying music-centric feature set and admirable performance. The design is well-constructed and easy to use, and it offers a brilliant display

The Nokia 5610 Xpress Music's navigation toggle was stiff and its keypad was slippery. Its memory card slot is in an inconvenient location, and the camera's functionality is limited when using the flash

The Nokia 5610 Xpress Music offers a nice higher-end alternative to the Nokia 5310 with a flashier design and upgraded features. It's a good performer, too.

Nokia 5610 XpressMusic review: Gotta love music


We are having the pleasure of a handset that has been designed to meet the highest expectations of music fans. Its other features however are pretty interesting too and will surely appeal to a wider audience. It seems phone manufacturers are head over...

High-quality construction, steel highlights ; 3G support with video calls ; 2.2" TFT QVGA display ; 3 megapixel camera with autofocus ; UMTS, EDGE, GPRS ; Advanced music functions, radio with RDS ; Stereo Bluetooth ; Good keypad ; microSD memory card slot

Front panel susceptible to fingerprints ; Camera LED unusable as a flashlight ; Charging through USB not possible ; Easy to scratch lens glass protector ; microUSB port is not that popular

Nokia 5610 XpressMusic


Yes, T-Mobile's Nokia 5610 XPressMusic does feature a solid music player and FM radio. But it's also a good choice for shutterbugs, thanks to its 3.2-megapixel camera and VGA video recording—the best that any phone in T-Mobile's lineup offers.

3-megapixel camera with VGA video recording. Syncs well with PCs. FM radio

Mediocre voice quality. Lacks a standard 3.5mm headphone jack

The Nokia 5610 XPressMusic is T-Mobile's best camera phone, even though it's marketed as a music-centric device.
