My previous phone, Nokia X3-00, a music-oriented phone has better sound quality than this.
But when using this phone for a year now, there were realizations:
-until I tried experimenting with the 8-band equalizer of this phone
-until I started using hi-quality headphones
-until I used high bit rate MP3s
-and until I started using the Line-out option when inserting the 3.5 mm headphone jack [for best loudness even at Volume 1]
then I realized that Nokia C% has hidden music quality potential. When I tried listening to the same music on my old Nokia X3, the music (voice) in C5 (with my best equalizer settings) sounded even clearer than on the X3. The only advantage of X3 over the C5 is that the X3 has a richer bass and a very good Stereo Widening sound. But with the C5's Bass Booster option, it should even things out.
It's quite a shame that Nokia decided to include generic headphones in the package, instead of high quality. In that way, they led many users thinking that the sound quality of the phone was mediocre, which is NOT...

Superb phone,those who don't want expensive,touch and qwerty keypad and can adjust without Wi Fi and want to use alphanumiric keypad phone then there is only one phone options remain and that is c5 5mp from NOKIA.
This phone c5 beats all N series,and older phones and also compativite to expensive smartphones too.
Some people are hurry to blame Nokia phone without knowing much about the phone(how to use),all the problem they faced is they created themself not da phone problems including Nokia.e.g. They r unable to stream videos,unable to download or upload videos or any other files,unable to use some features,phone automatic switch off n restart,contacts lost,videos &mp3 not playing,files not opening,low volume during call,internet not connecting bla..bla..bla.
Furthermore People hv to understand dat Phone company don't provide All in One in all phones,company has its own strategy for each phone owing for future phones so they compromised some feathers e.g.people annoying dat wi fi doesn't included,if u use ur brain each n every towns or every person don't use or don't hv wi fi,there r millions out there who don't need or use wi fi bt want solid phone at their bugget.
