response - fast, battery life - excellent, keypad - exceptional... however.. display/screen is a major disappointment.. can barely see it in the bright sunlight
I bought this phone yesterday. So far so good. The phone look great and the gps is exceptional. The camera is medium - I had an Samsung U800 before, and it has a better camera. Lots of stuff, lots of options for symbian software. I say go for it!
Got C5 with a small hardware defact. How to compansate for this issue? I don't want phone like this, there must be procedure. Anyone knows?
Nuwan, 22 Jun 2010C5 is hard to compare wit 5530 since they build wit different form factors (Touch/Notouch).. ... moreI liked 5530 bcoz it looked very cool..... I'm using a 6300. So i was think of switching into symbian with full QWERTY........ 5530 has virtual QWERTY. I read d gsm arena's review and saw that 5530's camera is not very good as a normal 3.2 mp. And many 5530 user mentioned that too. Gps is also missing in 5530 Whr c5 has life time navigation licence.and also c5's 3g and front video camera. So i'm pretty much confused with which 1 to choose... I read opinions that mentioned 5530's camera and volume performance increased after d firmware update...... It would b very kind if u can clear that now d current 5530's photo quaility is greater than c5's or not???
Today I Used That Mobile...its Great. Its a Bit like Series 40 But a Lot more Better than that...I love this Mobile.Its a series 60 Mobile.and has lots of application inbuilt on it..!!! yes there isn't a auto focus on main camera.but its Good.!! Video Capturing is also Great.But zooming is Lagging..but what...!Some better Quality Things also need some Worst parts..!! over all I liked Nokia C5
C5 is now available in the Philippines for 8,490 pesos.
this is a good back up phone
3.5 mm jack check!
16 gb card capacity check!
long battery life check!
To C5 users :
According to product review on GSM Arena
>> the micro SD card refuses to go out even if you manage to push it. It gets stuck in the slot and you need to scratch and pull hard to take it out.
is this true ?
what do you say ?
anju, 22 Jun 2010hey thanks...but stil confused.was thinkinfg to go 4 6700 slide..but after the mix response 4m... more6700s is also a nice fone. 5mp cam with carl zeiuss optics will surely suits u. Only thing is form factor. If u dont have any problem with d design i.e. Slider one, there's no prob then. I personally dont like slider, so wait for c5. It can take one or two mnths to reach in indian market. Plus the price diff will be minimum rs1200 there. C5 will be cheaper as compared to 6700s.

5530 comes wit no 3G but wit a great display.
C5 with 3G n front cam but no autofocus in main cam.
C5 can be cracked, most of the S60 applications runs on it.
Girl from Paris, 22 Jun 2010Many thanks. But where have you found this information ? On the Nokia's website, nothing is me... moreBaby, its a smartphone. And wt u have asked, is a simple thing. There is no need to go to the spec. to know this. Even in a series 40 phone u wil find this feature.
Ahmad, 21 Jun 2010Yes we can store SMS and MMS on both of " Memory Card and Phone Memo" :)Many thanks. But where have you found this information ? On the Nokia's website, nothing is mentioned about that...
lucky , 20 Jun 2010Front camera is for Video calling through 3g service not for photo shoot Yeah I got it but there is another question.We can use the Front Camera of the Nokia N70 both for 3G Video Calls & as a Camcorder... Can't we?? So why not on the newage C5?? Pls answer...
Nokia C5 's battery is really great and so strong.
It lasts for days of heavy use like browsing , chating , music , talking ...etc.
I recommend this phone for the world.
