Do... moreif i were you id go with nokia e 5. nokia has been known for it's user friendly interface. compared to blackberry. trust me. ive been working for a telecommunications company for so long and most of the calls that i am receiving are from the blackberry users... such a complicated application... unlike nokia... so easy to use...
elixir, 22 May 2011Hello, how do I improve its camera quality? It's very poor.Don't expect much from nokia e5 camera feature, I bought a canon camera after getting disappointed with the camera feature ;-)
I've moved away from Android. Reason? The Appalling battery life which seems to afflict every Android phone. I've had several Symbian phones in the past. The most recent was the Nokia 5230 before I bought into Android.
Anyway, the E5 is remarkably slim. My wife has the E63. It's significantly slimmer with smooth lines and rounded corners. Wide, it maybe, but it feels deceptively small in pocket.
OK. Symbian is a bit clunky in comparison these days but I was able to get up and running with email, facebook and chat - VERY quickly.
Web browsing on a non-touch screen isn't as easy as a touch screen but if you bought this phone or you're considering this - you know that already.
Battery life is quite simply **stunning**. I've been messing with it constantly to set it up and it still had a full charge in the morning.
Integration with OVI suite good. Although I had to download the seperate updater to get the phone to update its software. Other than this minor hiccup things have run smoothly. Shame there is no way to import my contacts from gmail. An hour of typing for 50 or so contacts sorted this out. I'm thinking there must be a way to do this using the software(?).
Screen is good. Good in bright light also.
Keyboard is brilliant. Excellent touch and feel.
Audio is also very good.
Camera is OK. It's a 5MP fixed focus.
Overall build quality is very good. Phone feels solid.
Summary - Blackberryesque style without the need for Blackberry service contract. Workhorse of a phone. In pocket, smaller than it looks. S/ware is dated - but everybody knows that and it won't be why they'll be buying the phone. Perfectly functional. And a smartphone phone with a decent battery life is marvelous.
What can be done for it to comply wiff WMV files, in the specs, it says it supports certian files, but when u have those file formats and want them to to display, they don't. So what is really the matter wiff this fone?
Raheel, 23 May 2011hey its not opnnng cuz dere is no acelometre in it!! n u shud download d games n apps frm ovi... moreBut can there be a way by which the accelerometer can be added to the fone? Surfing the web is xtra fast on this fone, but apps wise, its a pain in the butt. Total flop for now, unless wiff time it might respond to some certain things when some apps must have be invented specifically to the acceptance of this fone. For now i dont fancy this fone @all, just a dummy wiff 256MB of RAM and 600MHZ processor doing no work with its power to explore. Flop it is... Truely, Nokia mystic....
Anonymous, 24 May 2011Hi, got this phone about 4months ago and am not happy with it. Typical nokia problem, that it ... moreTo make sure it doesn't go online, do this.
1. Menu>Maps>Options>Settings>Internet. Then set to offline.
2. Menu>Cntrl Panel>Settings>General>Positioning. Then disable everything there EXCEPT Intergrated GPS. Viola!
rock, 23 May 2011hey guys, i think there is a problem with its light sensor....the screen itslef goes bright an... moreScreen Brightening up fix!!!
For all those who the screen brightening up stuff disturbs.
Ok this can be considered as a Temporary fix but still, i believe it will be very helpful.
do this First, De-activate Power Saving Mode
Then Menu>Cntrl. Panel>Settings>General>Personalization>Display. Then open the 'Light Sensor' adjusment. Then adjust the light sensor to the second level. (That is the level just after the lowest level. The small thing there has 5 posible positions. Put it in the second one counting from the left. The least brightness being number one postion.)
By doing this, the backlight is at a reasonable brightness even when viewing the phone in the middle of the night and also, it NEVER brightens up. So Keyboard light goes off, then it goes off normally too. No brightening up. Hope this helps...

Hello I want to buy this phone and I can't wait to be honest but the only thing stopping me from buying this one is its metal back cover... it is same like C5. I had C5 and after few months of use its metal back cover color started to fade away from both sides and I want to know if E5 metal back cover has the same material and same problem?
