Each new model introduced has a new level or element in it in the form of its wide and amazing features that make you think, I want that phone! The new Nokia 5250 is one such model that has it all. Be it looks, design, features, a touch screen, everything points out to the fact that this phone is probably worth a second look.

Nokia has been famously pushing the best possible gadgets in the market, however, with the invention of smartphones, nokia has been on its toes to craft competitive phones to stay in the market. Nokia has been famous in publishing cheaper phones, but lately they have been publishing phones which can certainly be classified as best of the lot, but they are bit pricy, such as Nokia’s upcoming mobile N8 price is relatively very high, it is set to be sold at about 45,000 to 48,000 Pakistan ruppees. N8 could be mighty and hi-fi, but it certainly doesn’t offer what our new gadget 5250 has on table, which is affordability. Read through the review to find out the price

5250 vs Smartphones:
Although, there is no justification to compare this sweet little candy to the giants of industry, however, we should still see the odds of 5250 against phones which are considered to be the best of the bunch, which can even bring iPhone to shame. These iPhone Alternatives are all stylish and rich in functions, loaded with features and loved by the masses, the masses which can afford to shed some pretty penny, however, while 5250 cannot beat these hi-tech gadgets in performance, yet i would still like to think it has pretty sleek design for its price, it is more usable, cost effective, in reach of millions of people, does the main job efficiently and more importantly, you won’t regret too much if something goes wrong with your phone, such as lost, theft or physical damage as you know it won’t hurt your pocket too much.

- With a resolution of 640 X 360, 16 million colors can be enjoyed to the maximum.
- The phone has a 2 mega pixel camera which is not very impressive, however.
- The Nokia 5250 could have been equipped with a higher MP camera, making it even more worth its price. However, the results of the camera are not as bad and adequate pictures can be taken.

- This handset has been measured at a mere 104 x 49 x 14mm and found to be weighing 104 grams.
- Although the phone does not support Wi-Fi, high speed data transfer can take place through the Bluetooth feature that is available both for wired and wireless, whichever option that you prefer.
All in all, this phone does lack some features which need to be updated; otherwise it is an affordable entry level smart phone that will surely be a hit with the younger crowd of today.
Price and Conclusion:
Usually nokia rates are relatively low, however, they at time push expensive range of their phones. As far as 5250 is concerned i don’t have too many bad things to say about this phone, apparently phone looks pretty good and you cannot expect much better in this price. It has all the core functions which an average user requires and it does it job pretty well. Phone is said to be priced about 6,000 to 8,000 Pakistan ruppees, however, it is still too early to make loose estimates. You should check the actual price with your local retailers.
