It's been a few days since the Nokia 5700 Xpress Music first arrived on my desk, and I've had the chance to give it a thorough going-over. Overall, I like what I see, though I can't give it the CNET Editors' Choice award that I bestowed upon its Nokia 5300 predecessor. While it offers improved features, the photo quality didn't fare quite as well, and it isn't optimized for U.S. 3G networks. But even with those misgivings, it's a superior music phone in all respects, and it makes good calls, too. The twisting design it inherited from the Nokia 3250 won't be for everyone, but I didn't mind it in the least. Check out the phone from all angles in our Nokia 5700 slide show.
