Excerpt: Nokia 5220 XpressMusic is impossible not to remember – its appearance doe not resemble to other models from Nokia or other manufacturers. The phone has an asymmetric shape that catches our eye. Such a bright, bold and memorable design clearly says that Nokia 5220 is aimed primarily at young people.
Summary: The volume presented by 64-chord ring tones is average, overall the 5220 is not the loudest device around, so we experienced some difficulties with hearing it in the street, and it lacked volume indoors as well. Actually, this is our major gripe with the handset.
Excerpt: Nokia’s XpressMusic range of mobile handsets, has some pretty funky designs but sometimes doesn’t fully deliver on all fronts. With most handsets in this range, you’ll find the audio quality is indeed something to write home about, but the handset’s all round performance may not be all it could have...
Conclusion: Overall the Nokia XpressMusic 5220 is a satisfying music phone. It does all the things that Nokia have been doing for years. This phone doesn't really step out of its music breeding though, it doesn't excite from a connectivity point of view, it doesn't really impress with the camera either.
