nokia c5 best in its price range.
But problem with this handset is that it autorestart frequently.
If Restart on heavy use then it is understable but c5 restart on mild use, for e.g. If i record video clip more than 1 min. Phone restart but this problem arises frequently only.
great phone simple with alot of features. i enjoy voip calls from this phone its jus great.
In case folks are interested in 3g performance:
I'm getting 2.5 mbps downlink and 0.2 mbps uplink speed on BSNL 3g in bangalore with this phone. Browsing is quite
fast compared to gprs. The map browser makes switching between windows quite fast. You actually start to want to have a 4 inch screen. Youtube viewing is without any glitch.
I tried 3g browsing on my 10 km commute and got consistent
performance in bangalore city. I also tried cellphone-as-a-modem from my computer and speed was a bit faster.
I did not use opera-mini, so that should get you a further
speedup if you want.
But BSNL 3g callcentre sucks. They could never get me the
right settings for 3g on nokia c5. In case someone is equally frustrated, let me know and I'll post the settings.
Stephanie, 09 Aug 2010hey everybody, hope your all having a good time. I have a question for those who have the c5, ... moreNo. The camera does NOT have autofocus. These type of info
is easily available on the nokia pages:
Ppl: please check specs first. No point asking questions already answered on spec pages.
hey everybody, hope your all having a good time. I have a question for those who have the c5, does the camera have autofocus? I was tossing between 6700 slide and this, what won me is the 3.5mm headjack. But i always get a phone with autofocus, in my opinion, i say its a must have. Anyways, reply please, tell me if this phone has autofocus. thank you. :)
i bought c5 before 2 weeks no problem at all. just anyone tell me how to hack it . thnx in advance. my email firstname.lastname@example.org
ok go ahead it seems that there is no problem but mostly people are selling there used handsets after using just a few days. that is alarming thing

Abid, 09 Aug 2010Hi Dears,
I Just want to know about the cover (Casing) of the mobile that it is changable or not.Nope, the case is not changeable for C5. 523X series has a changeable back cover.

See this for sound quality:
2 days back i tried in Univercell Bangalore, they told that nokia has taken back all C5 from them. If i check in univercell site, it shows approx price only. I dunno how far this is true. Is c5 available in any other mobile stores in bangalore, please let me know....

most bollywood songs give better performance on "pop" setting. You can even try stereo widening or bass boost
One final thing: do you hear music on loud volume in your
previous phones ? If yes, that could have caused hearing
damage and you find this phone not giving good sound. I'm saying this only out of concern, not to offend or insult.
But yes, the supplied headphone is of cheap quality. You can
try a better headphone.
Dum, 08 Aug 2010Dear friends.. can any one tell me how to mute the camera capture tone..?? Good you asked about camera sound. I hear nokia and many other
phone makers intentionally don't provide option to turn the
sound off. You can change the "camera capture tone" from
options menu but you cannnot turn it OFF.
The reason is privacy. They don't want ppl to use it to take
pictures without knowledge of people around. You can disagree
with that, but I'm fine with it.
Kind of similar reason why they don't have option of "FM recording" which even 1000rupees phones of cheap brands

recently i bought Nokia C5 but sound quality is not good whn i hear songs threw head phones is there any settings problem or mobile problem let me know is any body help me in this issue
Ashish, 08 Aug 20105235 or c5 which is better?I posted a comparison between 5230 and C5 just 4-5 posts below your question. So 5235 is very similar to 5230
- 5235 has doc viewer so it closes some gap with C5.
- 5235 also has unlimited legal music downloads from ovi
site for 18 months or so.
I still think C5 has an edge over 5235. I'd go for touchscreen only if they can make them slim (like X6)
