Nokia 5700 XpressMusic


The 5700 is quite a good phone with a twist.

I LIKE THIS PHONE! Sure it may have its kinks but there’s a certain Feel Good factor when you have it in your hand that’s quite unmistakable. All it’s functions and features work just fine and smooth as ever. The battery life is great, and on the whole...

Nokia 5700 review: Smart performer


It seems that music phones are becoming an increasingly important part of every company's portfolio. It's therefore no surprise that a lot of effort is put in developing such devices, which explains the constantly improving functionality and...

Fast and responsive user interface ; Excellent display, with unmatched legibility under direct sunlight ; Great earphones ; Symbian S60 3rd edition FP1 ; Sporty, youthful design ; The swiveling part is well-built and very functional

Awkward joystick ; Weak bass ; Bizarre Menu and C keys ; No Pencil key ; No built-in 3.5mm jack

The retail package we got the phone with was quite well equipped. Alongside a 1 GB microSD memory card, there's a wired remote serving as an adapter for plugging the included 3.5mm earphones into the phone's 2.5 mm jack. The earphones turned out quite...

Nokia 5700 Xpress Music (black, Unlocked)


Design Instead of incorporating the 5300's slider design the Nokia 5700 Xpress Music offers a twisting base like that on the Nokia 3250. The keypad, camera lens, and dedicated music controls are located on different sides and each base position is...

The Nokia 5700 Xpress Music offers a user-friendly design, an impressive array of features, and admirable call and music quality

Some of the Nokia 5700 Xpress Music's controls were difficult to use and its photo quality was disappointing. Also, it doesn't support a U.S. 3G band

The Nokia 5700 Xpress Music cell phone continues the trend set by the Nokia 5300, offering a satisfying combination of features, performance, and design.

Nokia 5700 XpressMusic Review


The development of the mobile industry has changed phones so much, that it has been long since they were simply “phones”. Over time, they have grown smaller, while acquiring more and advanced functionality. We started playing games on them, writing...

Nokia 5700 Xpress Music Review


Since Sony Ericsson launched its Walkman series, many rival brands tried to develop similar series that would ultimately win the supremacy on the music phones market. Nokia even launched two such series: Xpress Music and Music Edition. While the latter...

Nokia 5700 has been masterfully developed by the Finnish company and excels in all chapters. It has good sound, good signal reception, exceptional operating system, excellent connectivity tools, powerful CPU and above average battery. Furthermore, all...

The only thing that I think it�s worth mentioning is the 5-way joystick which is very hard to handle and the mediocre 2 Megapixel camera. There's always place for better, but Nokia 5700 Xpress Music doesn't seem to have any important flaws that we...

NOKIA 5700 XpressMusic review | cellphone prices in php | cellphones |   


The 5700 also isn't going to be bought by people who want phones to look very serious and business-like, but many of us don't want serious-looking phones. It cannot be compared to other smartphones out there, for it never intended to become a...

Honestly, I'd go for this phone if I want something that is equipped with good features and yet limited budget. Panalo ang idea ng twisting keypad, impressive dahil intuitive, innovative at useful. The unexplained reboots and occasional instabilities...

Snapshot: Nokia 5700


With a similar design to the innovative 3250, Nokia's new 5700 S60 smartphone has a focus on music, but brings other talents to the table as well.
