Compare 5220 XpressMusic red Deals
The Nokia 5220 XpressMusic in colourful red is the entry-level phone in Nokia's XpressMusic range of music phones. A candy bar, it does what it says on the tin: makes calls, sends texts, takes snapshots with a basic 2 megapixel camera, plays music and has an FM radio, too.
The music player is excellent, with support for playlists and most popular digital music formats, including MP3, MP4, AAC and WMA. You can plug in any standard headphones to its 3.5mm headphone jack – a big advantage over many more expensive handsets - and it delivers top audio quality, courtesy of a dedicated audio chip.
A tri-band phone, the 5220 offers the Opera mini browser for browsing the Web, Bluetooth 2.0 for wireless data transfer, all the usual messaging options and a host of now standard features, including alarm clock, calculator, stopwatch and animated screensavers. Internally it has 30 MB’ storage - which is enough for around eight songs, but you can add a microSD memory card up to 2GB, which gives enough storage for around 500 songs.
Battery life is rated at up to 5.25 hours’ talk time and 400 hours’ on standby from a full charge.
