Hi GSM arena,
You forget to review the things that make C-series tick. You forget to review the messaging capability of C5. The (push) messaging, the integration with facebook, twitter, etc. the things that make the C5 is a C-series.

Android fan..., 13 May 2010Did you guys really test this phone or what ??? There's to many inconsistencies in ur review… ... moreGSMArena seem to have taken these critiques on board and corrected the review. :)
Interesting phone. Compact, lifetime GPS and some audio to boot. Not my style of phone but... like GSMArena said:
"We won’t get tired of saying that giving the user a choice is a good thing – you can have (and pay for) -> only the features that you do need
The phone seems great, except the too small screen and wifi.
I do not wish to say that a screen would have to be huge but more than 2.5 seems to be logical for a smartphone.
No wifi is a deal-breaker, absolutely pointless and debilitating for the phone.
Did you guys really test this phone or what ??? There's to many inconsistencies in ur review… eg. ….. “ it lacks preinstalled document viewer” as key disadvantage and later in review you clearly show that it has one….. ????? This is one among many in ur review, and how many times indeed you have to mention that SD card cover or small screen. Considering size of the phone screen is acceptable….. and for the price…this phone rocks…… and nobody does these phones better than Nokia….. that’s the fact……
I’m tired of people bashing Nokia on default, just because their touch phones r not that good for them……
C5 will be best seller……
Where is 'Rakesh'..? He was saying its screen is handicaped..? Now what will you say..?
hi guys, according to the spcifications posted here, the Nokia C5 is only dual band 3G -- 900/2100 -- but it is mentioned in this review that it is tri-band. Can anyone clarify? Thanks, i visit this site almost daily B)

The screen is designed for complete privacy so that no one can peep on your CP screen. It was done intentionally by Nokia! I have never looked on a CP screen in angle, ever. I still have to know one person who uses CP in a difficult angle.

The display is not visible at an angle BECAUSE IT IS DESIGNED THAT WAY SO THAT OTHERS CAN'T LOOK AT YOUR DISPLAY. People requested it for privacy and Nokia has provided that and you guys now complain?
Messaging > New Message > Text message ... Just hate that!!!!! Messaging > New text message. NOKIA FOOLS
finally!!! awsome review from GSMArena... i won't go to another website for this handset's review now...
* i do not understand your opinion in viewing the phone left and right... is that how people use their phone???
* why stress on 'Fiddly memory card slot'??? who is gonna remove the memory card so many times anyways????/
* you completely forgot about USB charging!!!
all in all even though i am a fanboy of C5, i may wait for slider version with bigger screen
Nokia PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSE release C5's slider version!!!!! PLEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEE!!!

The reviewer must be blind!
