One of the things that Nokia is doing really well is filling its catalog with a wide range of devices that are similar to each other like twin brothers, with minor changes in specifications and settings, from one side to another. Nokia 5228 belongs to this category, reflecting in many ways its older brother - Nokia 5230.
This strategy, almost identical phones with a couple of changes, often confuses the average buyer who is not well versed in all these subtleties. But still, thanks to this policy, Nokia was able to cover a wider market segment, providing the consumer with phones of various price levels, taking into account the budgetary possibilities of potential buyers. The original Nokia 5230 spawned a number of variants, including the Nokia 5235 - a device that comes with unlimited music downloads from Comes With Music, the Nokia 5233 - which is aimed primarily at Asian markets, and the Nokia 5230 Nuron, which is aimed at the operator. T-Mobile in the USA.
The Nokia 5228 is aimed at the developed European market, where the device will be in high demand at such an attractive price.
The Nokia 5228, like other Nokia devices, has a touchscreen. As always, Nokia opts for resistive technology, as with most of its devices. The resistive touchscreen technology allows you to work with a stylus, and has support for handwriting recognition. The Nokia 5228 display itself has a very decent 3.2 inches and supports up to 16 million colors, the screen resolution is 360 x 640 pixels. The device has a built-in accelerometer to automatically rotate the screen depending on the position of the phone, as well as a sensor that turns off the screen when it touches your face during a call to prevent accidental pressing to interrupt the call.
The phone has 70 MB of internal memory on board, which in turn can be expanded up to 16 GB thanks to the Micro SD memory card. The phone is capable of playing a wide range of digital music formats, among which is the mandatory presence of MP3, there is also support for AAC, eAAC +, WMA and WAV. With a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack, you can listen to music on your personal headphones. Bluetooth 2.0 support with A2DP makes it possible to use stereo Bluetooth headsets. In addition, we can say that the 5228 also supports FM radio with RDS support.
Nokia 5228 is not just a phone, but a Symbian S60 smartphone. With the help of third-party applications, you can easily expand the functionality of your smartphone. Symbian has been the most popular system for several years now, which means that there are literally thousands of applications available for download on the phone, from office programs, games, communications applications, to services such as Facebook and Twitter. Data transfer is not the most advanced area of the 5228. There is no HSDPA, or even 3G. All data on the device is received via EDGE or GPRS class 32, which is quite enough nowadays for browsing the web and social networks. Downloading photos or music is best done through your home computer (faster and cheaper).
The built-in camera in the Nokia 5228 now has a standard resolution of 2.0 megapixels, which is amazing as it captures video at 640 x 480 pixels at 30 frames per second. Nowadays, only more expensive camera phones are used to shoot with this resolution and speed. The 5228 is a fairly light device, weighing only 113 g, and the dimensions are similar to other devices in this series - 111 x 52 x 15 mm. The size of the phone allowed for a large and luscious screen, and also provided enough space for a large and capacitive 1320 mAh battery, which provides up to 7 hours of talk time and 432 hours of standby time. Music playing time is a whopping 33 hours.
The low price and the familiar menu interface should ensure the device sells well. The device has many colors, or rather the phone itself can be white or black, but the back panel can be black, red, green, pink, blue and white, which will make it possible to highlight your phone.
