  2. Data sheet

As it should be for a copy of this series, the 169 euro also comes cheap 5220 with separate buttons for the music player to the side, a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the device and a 512-megabyte MicroSD memory card for the removable memory slot out of the box. So there is enough space at least for a small collection of music.

The attractively designed candy bar model also earned Kudos for the easily operated keypad: the numeric keypad are enough of each other and offer clearly defined pressure points. Also the operation succeeds thanks to the known simple series 40 interface without major pitfalls.

As already in the past often criticised at Nokia mobile phones, a bad-sounding stereo headset is also the 5220 only, which should be replaced as quickly as possible a good aftermarket eavesdroppers. Until then, its maximum sound performance can play out the 5220 that sound with deep bass and a neutral mid-range / high-frequency range can be.

Features: Nokia in party mood

Nokia is reflected in party mood of the remaining facilities and donated the 5220 abundant features: in addition to a tri-band radio unit the newcomer has the series 40 variant on board. However, you have to buy in addition have a Bluetooth GPS receiver for navigation use.

Also in the laboratory of our own Testfactory made a convincing impression the 5220: here are just under 16 days as well to highlight standby and up to six hours of talk time as well to understand sound on the phone. The reception could be better.

Bottom line: The Nokia 5220-XpressMusic can dominate not only as a musician, it also affords no real weakness – and moves into the top ten of the connect-Bestenliste with pomp and circumstance.
