Nokia X5-01 Review


Welcome to the Nokia X5 review information page. To be released in late 2010 this is the uses a design style, the land scape slider that manufacturers have been getting up to over the last 12 months.  It is supposedly related to the regular X5-00 but we think that it is probably a better comparison with the E71 and E72 series.  The X5-00 does have a number of decent features that you will probably like.  How much you like will depend on the price of course!  Until we can test one here are our impressions.

The X5-01 looks like a decent mid range phone based on construction and feature set.  However being an X series music and multi-media phone you can expect the full array of media players and recorders. Since it comes with a keyboard you will be able to email and text to your hearts content without too much complaint too!

Other functionality includes a decent web browser and Wi-Fi – when you 3G data runs low or too slow.  There is also support for internet radio and recording.  The only issue that needs to be addressed is the relatively small display screen.  And finally runs Flash lite 3 so all our wide screen power savers will work on them.

Overall another decent mobile phone from Nokia with a interesting design variation.  If you are after something different then this may be the model you are looking for.
