Nokia 5250 Review
During our call tests, our voices sounded loud and clear on both sides, although the person on the other side of the line said our voice sounded a little bit unnatural. According to its manufacturer, the phone is rated at 7 hours of talk time, while its stand by time is listed as 18 days.


The Nokia 5250 is a pretty basic smartphone, but that's not to say that it doesn't have its strong points - even if we put aside its affordability, which is the phone's main advantage, it offers good design and excellent music capabilities. However, if you are not overly impressed by this handset, you may look at some other low-end Nokia phones -  for example, the Nokia Nuron 5230 or simply check our "Best Budget phones" category.

Nokia 5250 Video Review:


  • Cheap
  • Reasonably good-looking for such an affordable handset


  • No 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS service
  • microSD card is a must-buy, due to the limited built-in memory
  • No USB cable out of the box
