I like mail for exchange. It's useful and I've a pretty good experience on my E71
what's keeping me from buying this phone is
1.Screen. And no not the 262k colors, I've learned to accept that since blackberrys mostly have 65k but the PLASTIC covering the LCD is such a dealbreaker. Common NOKIA, plastic scratches easily and my E71 has glass. Do you have to scrimp on the LCD cover? Screen protector takes the fun away.
2. Fixed focus. What i like about my E71 despite the poor camera is its ability to capture pictures of documents via MACRO shot. E5 doesn't have this.
3.Keyboard. I've actually used an actual model(not the dummy ones) when I was checking it out on a store but all the E5s I had the saleslady show me(all 4 of them) had poor key TRAVEL. Unlike the E71 whose keypad travels deeper, E5's keypad travels a little short. This is one thing the reviewers haven't talked about. I only saw one review discussing this point and it's true. Keypad travel is less compared to E71 and E72. Sure the keys are bigger and it's clicky but the travel is horribly short.
does it have poor quality when it comes to its camera? please answer.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010Nokia E5 is too expensive here in the Philippines!
Nokia Philippines just recently announced ... morethe cheapest Nokia E5 is on Citylight telecom centre
They are selling it for 10,990.
It's not some kiosk in a secluded mall. There is one in SM Cubao, SM Marikina. They rent premium space so I guess that takes care of the worry of them being some fly by night merchandiser.
There are other branches but I haven't checked em out.
I'm planning to buy too because of the RAM upgrade. Don't buy just yet. 14.950?! Nokia is fooling the first few buyers in the first two mos. Come December it should go down to 12k. On some stores like 5th ave, MEGA cellular, they are selling it at 13200 and 13500 respectively.

Nokia E5 is too expensive here in the Philippines!
Nokia Philippines just recently announced it and will be launched to all Nokia Stores nationwide next week with a suggested retail price of 14,950 php.
This phone must be priced at least 10k to 12k pesos since it's already old.
I hope that my money will not be wasted with this too obsolete phone.
Good luck to me!
I hope that i will not regret when i purchase this smartphone.
Do nokia dropped the price of their devices every yuletide season? How much?
I need your reply my fellow Filipinos.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2010you can very well see you tube videos ...Could you please explain in details ?
ovi stores do not allow the youtube application to
be installed in E-5. Is it possible that we can just
open the youtube page as we do by typing the URL?
Can we also download youtube videos?
Kindly inform as this is the key point in E5.
