Got it for INR 7600 from planet M. Pretty much happy with
the phone. No restart/hangs touchwood. My only complaints are a miniscule usb cable and GPS takes 5-10 mins to get a fix without a-gps (which btw, sucks a hell lot of GPRS bytes).
I was pretty impressed by accuracy of turn-by-turn navigation.
The landmarks on the ovi map were slightly dated. But that's
expected in Bangalore where every few months stores and
restaurants come and go.
I'm not fleet-fingered, but the response is very snappy
esp. the music album and image library imports were faster
than on my dual-core linux laptop.
I'm happy with battery life too (6 days of mild use projected).
I wish nokia had good data migration tools from competitors' phones. I was able to migrate contacts
easily enough by sending them all via bluetooth. But haven't
figured out a way to migrate my SMS messages. Sheesh: doesen't OVI suite have a way to just import an xml ? Maybe
because C5 doesen't support syncml.
My first experience with LED flash, but it was better than
what I expected. Images are bright albeit colour was a bit
PS: I'm upgrading from nokia 3315/motofone f3, so pardon if this is overly positive review.
I wish T9 outlasts the touch screen fad.

Purchased 3 days before. A symbian 60 phone with 3G at Rs.7620/- (incl 2 GB card) is worth.
