RATING



6.8/10

The Nokia 5610 XpressMusic currently has an Informr score of 6.8 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 13 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The "1-Minute" Review

The Nokia 5610 is a thoughtful phone geared toward a younger demographic looking for music functionality.

This sharp slider, black and trimmed in a commanding red (or white), offers up a feature set that provides for quality phone calls, plus a 3.2 MP camera with flash and focus, an FM radio, the ability to play videos with a quality that approximates that of a DVD, and 3G speeds.

Clearly, with these specifications, Nokia is competing directly with the Sony Ericsson W910.

Out of the box you receive a Nokia stereo headset with remote control, microUSB cable and a microSD card (512 or 1GB depending on location).

The Nokia 5610 boasts a 2.2 inch 240 x 320 pixel display, complete with scratchproof glass. The display produces a quality image with good contrast and bright colors.

Slide it open and the phone reveals a basic and spacious alphanumeric keypad.

The navigation bar on the front is innovative and fun.

The Nokia 5610 is youthful and easy to use. If you are in the market for a phone that “does music”, take a look at the Nokia 5610.

Nokia 5610 is already selling and the price tag of about 320 Euro makes it a reasonable choice given the variety of functions on offer.

Pro: Music Player - Camera - Video Camera - Radio - Color Choices - Games - Wallpaper - Screensavers - Micro USB Jack Con: 2.5 Millimeter Headphone Jack Using experience: 7 months This is a great phone! Its my first phone, I got the red version from T-Mobile and it rocks! It has games like AMF Bowling Deluxe (DEMO), Dance Dance Revelotion (FULL) , Diner Dash 2 (DEMO), Guitar Hero 3 (FULL), and Surviving Holiwood (DEMO). Plus I love the camera. It takes really good pictures and videos. Also it was really easy to put music on the thing, plug it in to your computer withe the included micro USB jack, pop the CD in then save songs to your PC then transfer. Uploaded 24 songs so FAST!!!!!!!!! I don't know why It has a 2.5 MM jack because the 5310 the candybar version has a 3.5 MM jack, THAT SUXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX! I have dropped it so many times and just got 1 little tiny scrach on the screen! =) GREAT PHONE!!!!!!! Less

Pro: music, resoultion,camera Con: very weighty, wornable navigation slider, very complex while inserting sim or memory card I have initially bought nokia 5610 but really, i couldnt find it as i expected. very weighty while putting in my pocket... i always feel there is something. And i think the navigation bar is faulty design for this set. while inserting in my jeans trousers' pocket, it would be very difficult. Although music is good for this set, i didnt like the style of this set. And finally, this is expensive also, so I exchanged it with NOKIA 5310 Xpress music, which has become my best choice!!! Less

Pro: decent camera, mp3 player Con: screen seems easily scratchable had mine for a little bit over a month. been a long time tmobile user, extended my contract at wallymart and got the phone for $40. then, found it at sam's for $30. so, do a little shopping, tmobile wanted $100 for the same upgrade. a few times, the phone seemed to lock up, but after reseating the sim card, it came right back. i drive a semi and it gets bounced around quite a bit (I use the mp3 player when i'm between decent radio stations on the road) so I blame my rough use. one thing that bugs me about it, not sure who to blame here, but having a 3.2 megapixel camera is very nice, but the camera has to make the images smaller to send it out via messaging. what's the point ob being mobile if you have to hook it up to download your pics?

Pro: Big screen, nice camera Con: Not dependable! I had my phone for 1 month when the screen locked up. T-Mobile replaced the same phone. One month later, the screen went crazy with color and stuck that way. You couldn't see numbers, pictures, menu, absolutely nothing. T- Mobile informed me that they could not replace the phone because Nokia was having "issues". I was told to choose between 2 other Nokia phones that were less expensive and not comparable to the features of the 5610. I am out $200 and don't have a phone because I refuse to take their ridiculous offer. I am still fighting with my cell phone company over this matter.Not happy at all!!! Less

You can't put the number "0" when typing or texting, forget it. Also, I had it for about two weeks and it MALFUNCTIONED and DIED. The charger barely fits into the phone, it slips right out often. Anyways, the phone NO longer works, it's all done. Have to go across the GTA to my Rogers place and have it SENT IN for repair - how long that takes, I don't know. But it is (was) my only phone number, and phone - so who knows who and what I am missing for the next few weeks? I guess I should start collecting quarters for the payphone. Less
