A mobile newcomer's first impressions:
I like the dinky looks and feel of the blue version very much. It feels good in the hand because it has good ergonomics with the shape and quasi-rubber, and good balance of the weight unlike the 3510. I don't mind that the buttons are clicky since that is the price you pay for the robust versatility of the phone.
Compared to the 3510 though, the sound is a little tinnier or scratchy in the way those simple metallic earplugs are. You know, the really... (read more)

The nokia 5210 has a major software bug. If you go to profiles->general->personalise-> message alert tone->personal and you select a ring tone, then you 'll get a language menu when you go to names->caller groups and select one of the caller groups. Instead of group name, ... you 'll get a language menu. There are more of these software bugs, so i recommend that you don't buy this phone. (read more)

I wanted a robust phone that i could use and abuse, i am an operational firefighter, and up to now it has not disappointed (yes it has been dropped and been wet). So maybe some reviewers expect too much and if they want a poser's phone don't buy the 5210 (read more)

I've had my nokia 5210 for a year now and all i've had is trouble, I wish i hadn't bought it. I am going to sell it now and when i dropped it the screen cracked. So how can they call it shock proof? I am going to buy a different phone now!!!!! (read more)

I would like to see the phone with the build quality of the 8310 cause if all the things that were on the 8310 were put on to the 5210 it would be a smashing phone (read more)

I got my 5210 in April 02. I am now on my 5th. Y? because it's the most unreliable phone i've ever had! Faults i have had include, buttons not working, buttons putting a different number on the screen to that i pressed. Phone cutting out during texting. Phone losing signal until phone is switched back on. Turning itself off. Locking up. Not switching itself on at all. In addition to these faults i've had a screen crack when the phone was in my jeans pocket, and i'm a small person! The... (read more)

By far the worst phone I ever bought. It was so boring, thermometer doesn't work at all etc... I now own a panasonic gd 87 colour camera phone. And there is just no comparison. I wouldn't change it for anything. Never buy a monochrome phone these days, at least get a colour phone like the 3510i, or the 7250 soon.. I always ask myself this question: why do people bother buying monochrome phones??? I can't stand them anymore!!! Get real, colour and camera phones are the future! (read more)

I got this 5210e on a free upgrade from Orange, used it for one day at work (cycle courier). I like the phone, small and light, can knock it about a bit etc. But I can't hear the ring over the London traffic noise. The main problem for me is using the hands free kit. I got a nokia hands free and need to use voice dialing alot, but when i press the button on the mic to start the voice-tag recall nothing happens. If i un-lock and then re-lock the keypad it works fine and dials away, but if... (read more)

It's nice (as far as my review is concern) has good features well if you're an outgoing person, hey dude try this one! Well I mean you could buy a casings/shells with bubble keypads so it's easy to press. I bought mine for 7500 pesos thats about......141.50 american dollars well thats a kind of cheap. HEY NOKIA: IF YOU COULD BUILD A 7650/5210/5510 COMBINATION WELL MAKE IT A PHONE W/C IS SHOCKPROOF,COLORED/HAS DIGITAL CAM.,HAS MP3 WAPABLE HUH WHAT ,MORE!!!!!! (",) (read more)

The Nokia 5210 mobile phone is garbage - it is for clumsy idiots.
The only reason to buy for is being a bit more resistant to shocks than others.
Rest is same with every others.
Thermometer is a mean marketing trick from Nokia. It is definitely useless, I tried two 5210 phones. I regret to buy this phone. Should have bought a second hand 6310 which would be a great phone. I went for the thermometer and got backstabbed... The dealer refuses to change the phone also.
Damn you Nokia !!! (read more)

I had my 5210 for 12 days, for the first week, it was great (previous phone Siemens C35i), Unfortunately people that phoned me said they couldn't me hear very well. After a week the novelty value of the phone wore off, as I am not sporty the chances of me dropping the phone are slim. Therefore I changed to a Nokia 3510, so far impressed with this one much better battery and reception (read more)

I was on my third Nokia 5210 mobile phone in 12 months. I like to have a good phone but if I buy the best, I will lose a lot of money when it inevitably breaks in the near future. So I buy mid range phones generally, 3310, 3330, 3330. These never lasted more than 4 months. I am a clumsy person and my phone gets dropped often. This phone practically bounces back into your hand when you drop it. Feature wise, it is a substantial upgrade of the 3330, which in turn is an upgrade of the 3310. It... (read more)
