GSMArena

A resistant phone with the latest OS

from GSMArena

Nowadays most current mobile phones try to compete with common technical products in photographing, music reproduction, quality elaboration of work applications etc. With its new 5500 Sport model Nokia has entered a new field – sport. The phone features interesting new functions, which will both surprise and please many users. Yet, I think that Nokia 5500 Sport will probably remain a disappointment rather than a success for real sportsmen. For example, the phone does not have a Bluetooth sensor for pulse measuring or speed recorder for horse riding. Data are collected through a general motion sensor only suitable for approximate measuring or checks. Professional sportsmen will probably go for Nokia 5500 Sport as for a smart and resistant mobile device, but I doubt they will ever make use of its sport functions. Common sporttesters remain far more precise, offering a greater amount of measuring options...

Common sporttesters remain far more precise, offering a greater amount of measuring options.

Due to its OS Nokia 5500 Sport scores higher than any other current heavy duty mobile phone. In this sense it can be compared or confronted with smartphones only. The official price of the phone is ˆ300. The strongest competitor of Nokia 5500 Sport is expected to be the cheaper musical Nokia 3250 or the smartphone Nokia N72 (ˆ30 more expensive). Nokia 5500 Sport is, however, the ideal choice for those who want a resistant phone with the latest OS.

since I've had the 5140i for a year or 2, I'd thought i had to upgrade to the 5500. bad idea! the 5500 has a slow chip so response time is really slow. sometimes after calling the wrong number and pressing the hang up button it takes about 12 seconds to respond. i do like the blue tooth something the 5140 didn't have. and the memory is cool to. 2 gig in a phone!! for the rest, the key pad lets go after a while so you have to glue it back. it is in fact water proof something i need for my job. but i wish NOKIA would try this one again. a rouged waterproof phone is great but would be nice if it's usable to. cause the nokia 5500 is a joke!
