if i buy this unit in manila philippines, would anyone know if it'll work as well in the US in case i send it to my younger sis for her use?
Ashok_, 23 Aug 2010Which one should I go for, nokia e5 or nokia x6 8gb?
which one has better camera?
e5 has enhanced fixed focus camera
x6 has got autofocus camera
decide yourself whether you need an autofocus camera phone or fixed focus.
K-Rock, 23 Aug 2010Why would a phone like this have a 600mhz cpu while others such as n97 only have 434mhz?
you can ask nokia about it

people, i bought it and it's doing well, after 2 days i can say:
excelent sound and loud, very little distortion at max. level
very good sound quality in a call
exactly as my expectations on the speed with symbian, i had 4 symbian smartphones by now and this is the fastes, no lags at all, even if i have an 8 gb card and 3 gb free memory on it
the only bad thing is that i have to wait aprox. 3 min to connect to the satelites and, when i use the voice navigation, even more
for east europe, the ovi maps are not that detalied, so i'm tinking about installing garmin or something else.
i hope i helped
The earphone quality is very good, really. I can hear the person soooo close to me.
This model has the volume buttons on the side, which is very useful.
My main problem is that I cannon configurate all the stuff in a theme (I don;t use Wifi and I don't want it to appear in my stand-by screen - I can't change that.). And also, I don't likw the sturt-up tone - I can't disable it. I used a 7210 and I could disable the start-up tone. With 3G calls, internet and Sms - my battery holds for about 72 hours. My old 7210 managed only about 36 hours. So I think this one's very good.
I wonder why people brand this phone 'plasticky' and I ask how many manufacturers really use steel on their phones, including blackberry. To me, E63 looks more 'plasticky' than E5 because this looks more polished, solid and shining. I have seen the white color which I think is beautiful, but I have the black. If u want a serious, cheap matured phone, go for this and u won't regret.
no built in accelerommeter.
memory card not hotswappable.
no front cam for video calls-reminds me of 6233 a 3g phone without front cam.
excellent build quality though plasticky.
256 mb ram.
excellent battery back up easily ranks among the best.
speaker quality is good.
cam flash is powerful.
memory card support upto 32gb.
qwerty keypad is smooth.

I just need to know whether E5 has built in accelerometer or not for auto sensing as its not mentioned in the specs on nokia site
Bhavesh, 21 Aug 2010Thanx friend. And how is the earphone qulity. Does It strero efected? What about video calling?Earphones quality is asusual, nokia provides dumb ones. But since u gotta have a 3.5mm jack, you cn buy a good one.
And mates, I used this mobile heavily like I use edge,wifi,calls,sms,music and camera and great to tell that I got a back up of 2 days.
And to tell you all, E-series never lets you down.
And one more thing, there's no coc editor, gonna purchase it soon.

I thought the Nokia E5 won't have a front camera. Is the unit GSMArena reviewed a prototype or a furnished product?
Yaah ! Am proud to be one of the owners of this phone. FOR REAL MEN .... Naija 4 life.
hubert satheesh, 21 Aug 2010A review by professional standars is supposed to clarify all queries regarding the phone. Now ... moreyou have picked up the perfect points. As a layman we wants more real life; not what has been written in mobile company site or ambiguous language as used very often by GSM nowadays.

A review by professional standars is supposed to clarify all queries regarding the phone. Now what does GSMarena means "and the battery lasts quite a while between charges" how many hours or days nothing is given. Further 38hrs of music playback is not 2.5 days!! Now does this mobile has any notification light? GSM better put more efforts while making a review as all these little things matters a lot when we buy a phone and be more specific and dont generalise.Quite disappointede with this type of review
