i'v been using this phone for about 2months now, the camera is very poor, so unimpressive for a 5MP; the phone hangs alot of time and sometimes slow in responds. all in all its a good piece of machine, great for messaging n surfing the web. its speeker quality is not on the bad side, musics loud.

> In reply to ika @ 2010-11-25 07:53 from PA8x - click to readThis phone (E5) is more superior to the C3 which is reflected in the price difference.

While the E5 goes for N38,000 in Nigeria, the C3 goes for N24,000. If you're into office applications i.e word, excel, powerpoint and even pdf, the E5 will give you just that. The C3 doesn't have that feature.

I must say that this phone is a better deal than wasting ur hard earned money on a blackberry. I definitely do not regret selling off my bb to get my E5 which is what I'm using to upload this post via opera mini.

The E5 is a 3G phone , while the C3 is a 2G phone which means it offers better and faster speed. This is evident while using the internet. You cannot go wrong if u purchase the E5. It gives you so much value for your money.

ok,this is what i experienced when i use this phone for 3 weeks....fast speed in internet using...i used opera mini 10....downloaded from ovi store...music is louder than e71..but with crispsound if used to the max..so adjust the equalizer...the keyboard are superb..it is the best qwerty out there if i could say that..gps is pretty good,but the waiting ime for the gps are pretty long,but when gps are on...it is awesome...the document editor is essential for smartphones and this phone has it..it work very well really...for messaging...this phone has it all..skype,yahoo messenger,msn messenger,facebook,twitter,myspace,fring and other messaging services..its wifi speed is very good,fast....about hte color,white is better than black because black colour fo this phone akes the phone looks cheap,but compared to the white version..it is far nicer...battery is good too...initially when i bought it,the battery didnt last very long...but after 3,4 recharges,the battery lasts longer and more time for u to use this phone...the button is very big and easy to press(the steel button)...software is okay(dunno much about the software)....the screen quality is suprisingly good for 256k colours screen...it is sufficient...watching ou tube is great with very small but unnoticeable lag...and the cons for this phones of course,the camera quality is so low...even 5 mp camera in this phone is just a waste of branding...its better if they put 3 mp with autofocus cam...about the hangs and restarting itself,my phone never do that...when it hangs,i immediately press home button and close all application that i used..it works for me...overall opinion...a very good phones for anyone who wants to get in touch with their friends and other people without even paying for a higher price...good messagabilities.....good speeds for this phone...but not for pictures persons...camera just sucks but the other specs that included within the phone just covers its weaknessess.....a must try and buy...

Hello all.

Best regards,
Igor

> In reply to Kedar @ 2010-11-25 08:02 from ut76 - click to readI used the nokia update software & it found the new software update for me, then updated my phone. Use nokia pc suite to back up ur phone first, then try with the updater NOT ovi suite. If you can't find pc suite on the nokia site update from another site by searching for it thats what i did.
