Excerpt: 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 comprises reshaped old models which were given high-end music capabilities (Nokia N70, Nokia N73 and Nokia N91), Xpress Music series includes only newly developed models (Nokia 3250, Nokia 5300 and Nokia 5700).
Pros: 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 above come for a cheap price as the phone can be acquired for around USD 400 in most countries.
Cons: 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 should complain about.
Excerpt: The Nokia 5700 is a sleek device that offers stylish and dependable results in talking and other functions such as multimedia purposes. It comes in mostly black and red colors with a dimension of 50.5 x 108.2 x 17.3 mm that is perfect for its being lightweight and easy to use.
Summary: The reception quality delivered by the handset brings about no problems – both ends of a call won’t have a hard time understanding each other. The volume of 64-chord polyphony is quite high, but if you go for mp3 tracks as alert tunes, quality of the embedded polyphony becomes of minor importance, really. The silent alert is average strength-wise, thus occasionally its efforts on getting you to know that someone is calling might end up in vain.
