I bought the Nokia C-5 a month back. I was a bit weary about the negative reviews I have read at various blogs but once I bought it, I realized the people with the negative comments about this device do not actually know how to use it!!! This phone is even better than the E71( I have one as well) in performance, yes it does lack a some features of the E 71, but has a much more faster interface and internet capabilities! Its an awesome device!!!!- go for it if you have a budget of 8000 Indian Rupees:)
Well,It's been a week since I purchased C5 at NokiaPr.This phone is pretty fast,with lots of features,the microSD slot is a bother though.The battery performance is excellent,the camera is decent enough considering other phones manufactured by Nokia,It has excellent sun legibility ,multitasking options.Frankly the negative responses to this phone are quite baseless,and I recommend this for others..
Ezekiel, i think you've installed lots of third party softwares and the mobile may have got virus as this is s60 v3 mobile so there is always a fear of virus and internet browsing must also not be done in mobile. You should always scan your mobile for viruses periodically. Take your mobile to nokia care and reinstall the software once again. From next time dont install third party softwares, dont browse internet, dont use much bluetooth, always scan and then load songs. By following these guidlines you'll save your mobile from future virus attack. You can also buy an antivirus for your mobile and install otherwise you may install a free antivirus like NetQin and update it reularly. Ok best of luck..

Pankaj, 03 Oct 2010Camera is superve???i dnt think so,the camera flash is poor and pics are worst at night.For night photos, use the "night portrait" scene mode. if you take photos in the auto mode, they won't come out as good as manually setting the scene mode.
I found the camera on the phone better than expectations for the price.
i have using this mobile for a month it's rocking.......
the browser is very fast even in gprs
and excellent s60 os ...don.t miss the phone
c5 users, please confirm if restarting and hanging problem can be fixed by firmware update
