ladies and gentlemen, the razzie awards of the mobile industry presents, the top three ugliest phones of the year:
1. the "bold" but not-so-beautiful blackberry clamshell.
2. the X10 divided by half = X5.
3. the microsoft kin one - truly goes to show that appearance is indicative of substance sometimes.
there's a very fine line between a groundbreaking design and an awkward one, which designers tread dangerously and then just end up plunging, or rather, slipping into one of the pools.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2010I'm sorry but how did Nokia follow apple by making 8GB,16GB,&32GB versions? Did apple inv... moreno apple did not invent those numbers, first mobile phone with internal memory as from Nokia N91, and samsung 8gb. apple wasnt in mobile market in those days.
x10 mini much?
i knew it...many really follow the leader..tsk..tsk..tsk :))
I knew it damn... in the cold snowfields of Finland 2.36 screens are farmed.
Wat een super leljike telefoon!
The ugliest phone ever!... gosh..
Why do they make these things haha
I think X6 is best ever design from Nokia , although i personally use Xperia X10 , but in the range of Nokia, No doubt it is the best ever design i have seen these days,If u have to blame anything, it is
3)Slow touch responce
Otherwise its Good.
No doubt the after sale service in Kolkata is awesome.
I love nokia but this is wrong another wrong x5 looks like someone ran over an e72 and tried to put it back again failed and added color to it lol . I know what market they are going for cause samsung,moto and lg have done phones like this with android but no excuses it's really ugly

These are standard memory specifications started from 8 bit and doubled. Btw X5 is the ugliest phone iv ever seen, may a female in the design department made it with a prospect for feminine market....:p
It looks like a squished X3...
But feature wise it seems ok. Considering this is going cheaper than the X6 it does not seem bad with the QWERTY and 5mp and all.
darrellC, 14 Jun 2010I guess Nokia's following Apple's strategy of different memory sizes? There's what? 8GB, 16GB ... morejust FYI, the old Nokia N91 has two variants :
Nokia N91 4GB and Nokia N91 8GB...
Nokia X5-01 reminds me a Ritter Sport chocolate commercial on german TV - quadratisch, praktisch, gut ;-)))
The first Nokia that is more beautiful than a Iphone. The square design take some getting used to but I love it too much.
Nokia really should concentrate for making good designs. Anyway ugliest phone ever.

Did apple invented those numbers? Those numbers are inevitable in memory.
My Mom would love this phone specially the PINK one! c", Thinking about buying one for her..
