Conclusion: Even if the phone didn't quite impress me at first through its design, the moment I started using it I was pleasantly surprised. There's no other Nokia handset that works that fast and with no crashes. I'm not too much into the music thing, but Nokia 5700 impressed me through its vibes. This a very good move from Nokia which managed to mix the functionality of its operating system with the exceptionally good multimedia experience.
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.
Excerpt: Nokia 5700 XpressMusic is a phone with a twist. Quite literally! This amazing looking mobile is actually a Smartphone that has a keypad which can be twisted in four different positions. Though it may not boast of a Smartphone state-of-the-art technology; the twisting keypad feature makes up for it. The keypad makes it easier for you perform a specific function with much more ease.
Excerpt: Den skal både kunne klare musik og fi lm, og buttede 5700 gør det godt. Det vridbare tastatur er ikke kun smart, når man fotograferer. Det fungerer også som støtte, når du vil se film på din telefon.
