Nokia 5250 review: Back to basics - read the full textThey made a promise and kept it. What can we say nice phone this Nokia 5250, but not an N8. Yeah we know, we need to be respectful and professional. But its easy to be a jerk to a 100-euro smartphone. The Symbian-powered Nokia 5250 is bottom of the...

It's 640x360 resolution on a 2.8 inch screen, there's no other phone in the market with such a low price and such a amazing pixel density, you shouldn't say in the review that the screen got poor quality.

The 5250 Nokia cell phone is really a good cell which comes at an affordable price range with lots of latest features. The features are Micro USB support, S60 5th Edition, a good touch screen, 128MB of RAM, accelerometer and proximity sensor etc. All these features makes it a good cell phone.

I have this phone, bought it about four days ago.Overall I'm satisfied with it,but let's keep in mind this shouldn't exacly be called a smartphone,it's a basic phone that does all the essentials(calls,texts,pictures,etc)while looking stylish and having a touchscreen interface.Nokia didn't spend much money on this phone,internal memory isn't much and I was expecting to get more games than just Guitar Hero,also,no USB cable,I had to buy one and the phone's manual doesn't even say how to use the cabel(I have yet to find out how do I disconnect it from my laptop?!Because I don't see anywhere where I can disconnect I have to simply remove it from the USB port?).Battery life is what's very disappointing.It's an OK phone,to me it would be a great phone if the battery lasted longer.

a really nice cell at low price. good music player, average camera, and nice browser. don't knw why people compare between this and N8. no doubt N8 is better but u should keep in mind it's price too.

well its good that nokia built affordable touchphone . Its better than the iPhone 4 which burns a hole in your wallet . If you didnt like the cheapskate 5250, well go ahead buy the new Nokia N8. I dont know why Android phones like the samsung galaxy and the sony ericsson are expensive . Nokia built durable smartphones. We all know that android phones are better than its smartphone competitors

It looks like a phone you get for 10 pounds in Tesco. Would not touch with a bargepole.

For the copy who only started to charge via USB in 2009 maybe a problem...because apparently this company doesn't know how to make a phone to be charged via USB like its touchscreen devices...being YEARS BEHIND in terms of such technology among its competitors.

gsm arena wake up: the whole web is full of horror stories about usb ports that are used for charging breaking apart after short usage. usb chrging is one of the biggest weakness of recent phones

Wow, yet another lame-@ss, low-end, cheapo touchscreen phone from nokia! They've been coming non-stop ever since the 5800 came out! Well, I guess that really is what Nokia are best at! Lol!!

The phone has no 3G, but why the screen shots showing 3.5G connection?
