Really!!! I thought it was the end of the world after I bought C3 few days ago because once I realized the price in our country (Malaysia) for C3 and C5 are slightly a hundred bucks difference. WTF!!! I thought I wanted to trade in my C3 ASAP and buy C5!
However, after reading some review and comments on C5, I have a feeling that I should have been delightful for what I have bargained for because C3 is a replica of ESeries at lower price.
Conclusion, C5 is a budget phone targeted at mid range consumer who wish to own a touch screen phone at a low price regardless of its features and functions. Likewise, I bought a C3 because I set a budget limit for not over 500 bucks.
For those who have not bought C5 or considering to buy soon, it is recommended that you go for C6, C7 or N8.
i think video calling is not there, b'cos there are no secondary camera.
Please dont go for these craps from nokia running on outdated and scopeless symbian !

I wanna buy Nokia C5-03, i think the only missing thing is the camera flash and symbian^3 OS.

It has the same price with LG Optimus One P500 but the latter is android, capaci... moreYeah, but the C5-03 has a higher resolution screen and the same processor, which makes it faster thanks to Symbian. 600 MHz ARM11 is really snappy on a Symbian phone for normal use. Practical battery life is probably about the same, since Android is not as well optimized for power use.The Optimus has more memory, though, so if you plan on running a lot of apps it could be better, and of course the capacitative screen is better for most purposes. So really it's a pretty even match.
