Pls all y'all who've used this fone, does it ve carl zeiss, hws d picture quality? And how long does the battery last with heavy usage.. .. And in this fone and c6 which is a better choice?....
Symbian again!!! If it weren't for that, I'd gladly buy this phone. I think the Samsung B7350 Omnia Pro 4 might be a better choice than this phone. The E5 has nothin goin for it except free navigation to be honest.
many features missing in E5, that's why the price is cheap. How come people can accept the cut cost phone like this.Do you buy a brand or the things? If the price little bit below than E72, better go for E72. buy E5, u get half, buy E72 u will get full. which one u like?
Deathrulez, 14 Aug 2010OMG!!! still people buying crap nokia phones!! Look at samsung. It provides android with atlea... moreI believe you were referring to the Samsung Galaxy "S"..... here'e why i'd choose Nokia over it:
1.Free navigation (for people who move around a lot like me, this could be a deal breaker).
2.Qwerty keypad (personal preference, I don't like touchscreens...... I'm sure there'll be others out there like me)
For people like me whose primary needs are listening to music, surfing the internet, sending a lot of smses and emails and navigation, this device fits the bill perfectly at a reasonable cost. And I care a rat's a** that it doesn't look "expensive". It serves the function I need it to, and that's more than enough for me.
The only thing i find missing in the device is a hot-swappable memory card (interestingly enough, they have that in Nokia C3. wonder why they couldn't have it in E5 too).
OMG!!! still people buying crap nokia phones!! Look at samsung. It provides android with atleast 650Mhz procie,capacitive screens, swype technology, divx,xvid support, doc editor, sec camera(3g,3.5g,4g).
What not?????? All at affordable prices like price starts from 9000 INR(ex, samsung galaxy 5 etc etc...)
Nokia, eats money of people.
Come on guys, open your eyes.
the era of ANDROID.......!!!!!
No secondary camera...so no video calling. Isn't that a step down??!!
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2010no speaker phone, no video callCorrection: There is speaker phone, but not video call. Get your facts right please.
well wisher, 14 Aug 2010-Display is Very BAD
only 256K colors
-No secondary camera for 3g use
-Only singly LED... more256k color display is not bad at all bcoz 16m color display is more brighter thats it.
single speaker is loud enough, better than e72
single led flash is powerful enough.
got my E5 for 12k. pretty good phone.
as i cant afford black blackberry i decided to go for thi8s qwerty E5. nd i am very much happy with this set.looks good like i desire.got the looks . cam is 5 pixl. got the whole look of bb qwert like phone.
i am aware that it's not like black berry in features.. i agree but im not a businessman . i want a good qwerty budget handset from nokia.
have it and u will feel good about it.
I'am thinking of buying the E5 but wae wondering what the handsfree on the loudspeaker is like.Would you be able to use it in a car to take calls.
At the moment I'am using a Nokia N95 8gb.The loudspeaker on handsfree on it is excellent.
Can some please advise.?
-Display is Very BAD
only 256K colors

-Though QWERTY but no Document viewer
-Only single speaker
-Cost a bit High compared to features
Just bought the E5 yesterday. Is there anyone else out there that has come across a white patch at top middle edge of the screen that when there is a word that appears over it, the word is partially faded. Is this an inherent thing with this model or have i bought a 'dud'? pls give feedback.
I bought this phone on Tuesday (10 August) and so far, I love it. Sure, design wise it looks cheap, and some find it a little unpleasing to the eyes, but is that what people do with their phone? The phone feels solid, to be honest.
I enjoy using this phone, for the price paid, sure you can't compare it to a E71 and E72, but because you aren't supposed to.
Really, if you consider getting a QWERTY phone, this phone is worth considering.
i've been using e5 for more than a week. up till now, no prob at all. definitely able to compare with e72.. those who used e72 but DID NOT tried using e5 at all, pls dont give negative feedbacks about e5.nothing in this world can please everybody. if u don't have any prob with e72, that is fine. doesn't mean others doesn't have any too.
Niles, 14 Aug 2010Your E63 has FP1 a slow processor and half the RAM count of this phone. 16 million vs 256k col... moreYes BB only has 65k color. but look at the screen resolution. Its pixel bigger than nokia 240 x 320. think about it. dont fool here.
techietechie, 12 Aug 2010Who cares about the 5-megapixel on this phone? Phones were never made to compete with the qual... moreYour E63 has FP1 a slow processor and half the RAM count of this phone. 16 million vs 256k colour? You cannot possibly see the difference on a 2.4" screen. Did you know that Blackberry's QWERTY-bar leading screens have only ever had 65k colours and that they are nearly indistinguishable on that point?
