wizteddy13, 16 Aug 2010Differences between C5 and N79 are: - N79 is almost 2 years old now C5 has better dimensions... moregood sum up wizteddy13. I am from Sri lanka and our network support upto 7.2mbps. looking at tech specs like Wifi/5mp cam/etc I will go for C5 as my main requirement is user friendly interface, decent bit of applications only. Even I will not use the Camera. C5 processor is never and speed compare to N79. So only thing I really gonna miss here is Accelerometer and Navi wheel. But C5 is priced 30% - 35% lesser compare to N79. Most probably i'll go for C5
com'on, get real!, 16 Aug 2010Got the unit today, bought from ebay $215.50(australian dollar). it great! thin, light and sim... moreThat's prolly becoz of the matt plastic back, but that's a good fingerprint resistant. The battery cover is also made of steel, and it also has a steel bordering, so it should look nice.
BTW, did u buy the grey or white one? :)
chaitanya, 16 Aug 2010which is good?vga@30fps or vga@15fpsVGA @ 30fps is better, but it usually comes with touchscreen phones, which is almost close enough to 15 fps (due to the larger screen)
chaitanya, 16 Aug 2010is der a optical zoom in dis mobile??It has 4x digital zoom
Got the unit today, bought from ebay $215.50(australian dollar). it great! thin, light and simple.
it feels(when you hold it) cheap tho, but doesn't matter, that's what i get for this price and considering it's brand new.only use this for messaging and calls. other features are just bonus, esp the 600mhz processor.

lalit, 16 Aug 2010which is better c5 or nokia 6700 sliderWell, the 6700 slide just has a better camera over the C5 (and a slider design)
But the C5 has a 3.5mm audio jack, stereo speakers, slightly larger internal memory, slimmer dimensions, social integration, Full GPS with A-GPS support and a better battery (not to mention a lower cost)
SO u can see which one is better, go for C5 man! :D
