Well Nokia C5 could be good alternate of popular E51. C5 has 2.2 inch LCD, 600 MHZ processor, small size which can fit to any pocket, OS is same as on other Nokia symbian mobile, mid rang price is another positive sign, so plz do not criticize C5.

Don't buy this phone on first launching...!!because:
-my brother work on nokia service centre,he tell me that nokia only produceed and sell nokia c5 only about 1.000.000 item,if they have a lot of trouble,and the selling is bad,they will discontinue the product...if have lot of trouble,but the selling is great,they will try to fix the trouble (hardware,firmware,etc),they called this secondwave mass production,if everything oke,no trouble,selling great,they will continue their production until they dont have demand on nokia c5 (thirdwave)
-if u read my statement,that all make sense,like nokia 6300,old phone,but nokia shop always have this stock on their shop,sell as new phone,not second hand...
-i see also many nokia phone discontinue their product,even their age just 1 year since the first release,well maybe because of my brother statement?
-alternative way,make sure u always search on the internet,and read about user review about nokia c5,if they have more trouble,rather than the advantage,u should wait until thirdwave mass production release,because u can have great and more stable phone...
-to nokia:sorry i have to say this,but i think i have the right to tell the thruth to the consumen,oke!!no offence

I am now using a touchscreen device from HTC with a larger 3.5 inches display. So I think C6 is better for me. Otherwise I will face some problem.

There are 2 colour versions. One in white and one in dark grey, the picture is a little confusing showing just the front of white and back of grey, but that picture is showing the two different colours available, just from different angles.

I think the 'C' stands for 'Cool' not 'Cheap'.

ok then.. thats correct too.. so they can make more profits..

but.. 1:15 is crazy.. maybe if they made 5:15.. thats ok..

1:15 is a serious joke..

i cant even find a new nokia phone which has complete functionalaities recently..

so.. u tell me that i need to wait further for mid-high end after the last 15 phones??
i just wanna see now, how many more phone that i need to wait to see a complete phone launched by nokia (example: e52/72)

damn.. i just cant wait any longer..

"1 high end phone out of 15 phones since n97 mini.. is this wrong?? thats fact... im just asking. what the heck is nokia corp doing now??"

The markets of countries like china and india is where nokia reckons most money will be made, and are therefore targeting these. The masses in these countries neither want nor afford expensive flagship models, hence most of the lineup will consist of cheaper mass-market phones.

some people are so pathetic, fighting over which phone is better... sooo petty. haha.

well, as i read the specs i think the key feature of this phone is its long battery life and I just love it. All of my phones' batteries suck! so i think this is the answer.

...be saving money for this one.,

> In reply to Anonymous @ from HHHH - click to readu must be out of ur mine..

this vs e52.. e52 of course win.. price range is the same..

e52 has steel parts. wifi. better design, functionalities. and this?? seriously..

why nokia even announce this kind of phone..

it is just the same as e52 with worse design, cheap material, less functionalities.. price range will be the same, since e52 has been announce a while..

i know u r a nokia fan. but just dont be too fanatic man..

im a nokia user who is waiting badly for new good phones.. seriously.. thts why im mad now..

although the built quality may be good and sturdy it certainly feels too plastic-y as for the featureset, its great for the price, looks kinda cheap though, too white.. metal finish would have really spurred things up, not justa a side trim..!!

Better buy Nokia N79. Search in this site. It costs 13545 Indian Rupees in (UNIVERCELL mobile showroom).
