Nokia 5610 XpressMusic review

6.8/10 AVG.

Informr score
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 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.
