Nokia 5700 XpressMusic Review


The development of the mobile industry has changed phones so much, that it has been long since they were simply “phones”. Over time, they have grown smaller, while acquiring more and advanced functionality. We started playing games on them, writing messages, listening to music, and storing images of beautiful moments with the built-in cameras. We are now even capable of being permanently on-line, making use of the option for fast Internet connection. One of the devices that combine all these, as well as a lot more opportunities, is the Nokia 5700 XpressMusic.

The XpressMusic line is designed for fast access to your favorite songs as well as superb quality of the reproduced sound. Specially made music keys for easy control and securing song enjoyment are at your disposal.

Like its “predecessor”, the 3250, Nokia 5700 XpressMusic features a rotating lower part. By only one turn you can use it in several function modes (phone, camera, music, video call and video view). However, it is not difficult to notice a few significant improvements of the device: quad-band GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz), with 3G networks (WCDMA 2100) support with video conversation option and QVGA (240 x 320 pix) display.

The unit comes in a standard red box with two levels inside and the set includes the following items:

  • Nokia 5700 XpressMusic phone;
  • Nokia Battery BP-5M;
  • Nokia Travel Charger AC-5;
  • Nokia Music Headset HS-44 / AD-44;
  • micro SD card (size varies by region);
  • Nokia Connectivity Cable DKE-2 (USB cable);
  • CD ROM with Nokia PC Suite and add-on applications;
  • User guide.

AD-44 is an adapter, which can be plugged into the telephone, with buttons for controlling the player and answering/rejecting a call. All this, as well as the availability of a microphone, makes it a fully-functional handsfree. In the set, there are also HS-44 headphones for inserting into the cochlear duct; the plugging of standard stereo headphones is also possible by using the 3.5 mm socket of the adapter.
