Got the phone yesterday. Nice device except no wifi (I know before hand) and the odd location of the ON/OFF switch (I didn't know it can be a problem) that can be a problem at time.
For me, having a wifi is an option (coz, I got a unlimited monthly 3G access) but when you have lots of goodies packed into phone like C5, wifi is definitely a must for ad-hoc online access, specially when you are traveling abroad with costly and hungry roaming monster next to you.
Position of ON/OFF switch is a problem. You can never know when you accidentally double pressed the button and OFF the unit. Happened to me twice last night.
Then, there is the back battery cover. I still prefer the slide and clip cover. C5's cover felt unsecured
and tilted slightly upward (near the speaker) because 2 sponges strip placed underneath it.
And yes, display as reviewed earlier, is not bright enough under the sun but that's not a problem (I mean why you want to stand under the hot sun and look at the display, you want to get cooked ?, Okay may be not). Still visible and readable.
Speaker is good (SE phone has better sound quality), although someone out there may have their opinion on the sound issues but I say you want quality, go get yourself a 5kg stereo boom-box lugged it on you shoulder and pump.
I'm not a brand loyalist, but anything powered by a dedicated mobile OS is definitely better than some scaled down PC's OS, and Symbian is good a that.
My second phone (I got E51, still kicking after 3+ yrs). I choose, Nokia because is reliable and durable compare to some bigger names.(you know who). I choose buttons over touch screen, simply you can press them without looking at it. (try navigate a touch screen phone blind folded, you know what I mean).
At MYR620-670 (Malaysia), the phone is affordable and simply worked. For now, I like it.

i really wanna buy this phone.. so bad. can anyone please tell me HOW MUCH IS THIS IN THE PHILIPPINES? tnx
I'm concerned about calling messaging n mainly about the battery life...this mobile would replace my 6120c as i see no difference except few additional features n some good stuff...Wifi for me will be useless cuz Office=internet...Home=internet...Laptop=Internet I mean is it necessary to have Wifi in everything even is its not useful? anyways this device is very light but the one i say there in the market was "Made In Chine" and I want "Made in Hungary"if cant get Made In Finland.
3.5G symbol appears when hsdpa data access (up to 14.4 Mbps) available, 3G symbol means umts data access (up to 384 kbps) is available. But the real speed is still depend on the provider and your data plan

Anonymous, 18 May 2010Hey. Nokia c5 has a 600 mhz processor which is a lot faster than nokia n86, n97, e90. So is th... morethe C5 and all nokia's with 600mhz are very fast, going around menus is seem-less, absolutely no lag. even with multiple applications running at the same time. to prove you this, me and my friend (n95 8gb - the best phone in s60 history) have playing the same game, mine loaded in seconds while his took longer, as well as during multiple enemies on scree the n95 lagged, i had 0 problems. zombie infection was the game.
Anonymous, 19 May 2010C5 have no 3G. It's a real bummer because the Nokia E5 that have around the same price have 3G... morewho ever you are stop spreading false information. the C5 is 3G, has a front camera and the when browsing it says 3.5G,i know because I have had the phone for close to a month now.
