I've been using this phone about a week now. No problems so far.It certainly is a nice phone. But have two big problems.
Very hard to use under direct sunlight
Battery life is terrible. i have only one active mail account and dont do much just few calls and texting about 25msgs per day. battery drains in 1 and half days.
I bought this phone on 28th Aug.
The E5 is a mind blowing device symbian device from Nokia. It does not freeze, no memory full error problem. No issues at all.
Camera is actually not Bad for casual photography.It's very Good for Daytime use. But Flash ruins the camera a lot. Using flash on close objects give good results, whereas shooting objects far than 2feets makes the photo look foggy.
I suggest this phone for those who use Camera for just clicking normal daytime photographs.
Apart from the camera , no issues at all. I use the camera daytime and i'm happy with its [performance and video is very good for a 15fps...
tried installing few apps, no freezes, does not slow down. n times better than E72.
It just fits my requirements anyday.
I've been using Symbian since Nokia6600, N72, N73,N79,E63,E72etc..This will be the first Symbian OS i'm very satisfied with.
Try it out at the Nokia concept store nearby.
I'm sure you won't regret.
i'll rate this phone - 8.5/10
Any question? you can ask me,....
i want to buy a phone which records calls without voices from my side when i have muted my microphone. Right now i m using nokia 5320 and 5800xm. both have the following prob.
i have to use call conferencing with my microphone muted and listen to my seniors lecture. sometimes when i m busy, i have to record calls without beeps using total recall, vox track personal or other 3rd party call recorders. but the prob is when i record call with my mic muted, it records call including the surrounding noises from my side. How can this happen? i have muted my mic, even then it records my voices in call recording. i even tried it in nokia's built-in recorder.
just call up yr customer care, after the call starts, mute microphone from options, now go to applications and start recording using in- built recorder or any 3rd party recording appli u want. just say 'hello-hello' for some time and then stop recording. now disconnect call (its free call). go to gallery and check the recording. i think it will have recorded the customer care voice and yr 'hello=hello'. this means the mic is not muted when u r recording, just the caller (cust care) cant hear u.
i went to Nokia care n they were kind to inform me that the older nokias (n70-73) used mic as hardware, i mean it can be detached/ removed/ repaired. so when u mute call in those phones n then record calls, as there is a mechanical mic, it would not record noises from caller side. but as this mic had probs n several people tempered with mics, nokia started using digital mic. so even if u record with mic muted, it will record ur voices.
this is nokia centre story. those who deal with nokia hardwares, plz confirm this and help me on buyin a symbian s60 nokia with hassle free call recording. i think i'll have tobuy a second hand model or so. Plz tell me which nokia models have mechanical mic or shud i go for Samsung or LG or micromax in which they have in-built call recorder without beep and the above problem

Don't expect any mobile phone to replace a notebook PC.
I assume that you mostly do office docs, excel, ppt on your notebook.
Well, smartphones are only good for basic docs, excel, ppt functions
and eventually, the screen size will turn you off cause you are strictly limited on what you can do with a small screen size..
so don't buy a smartphone to replace your notebook needs.
I have a nokia E61, E71, and it didn't replace my notebook. Sure it's handy writing basic docs, and basic excel.
But with the small screen size, eventually you will have to go back doing those stuff in your notebook.
its an amazing phone and surely a value for money....!! but just wantd to know how do we use facebook and emails on the go....????
Is there any built-in RSS feeds in E5? Highly appreciate if anyone could help with this info.
