Nokia C5 review

 

Nokia's semi-smart candybar leaves a sweet taste

Good access to Ovi Store ; Ovi Maps an excellent addition ; Decent build quality ; Familiar interface

No Wi-Fi ; Screen too lo-res for Apps ; Media player practically non-existent

We've now published our review of the updated touchscreen version of this phone, the Nokia C5-03, so check it out if you're into a bigger screen and fewer keys.

Nokia C5

 

A classic candybar phone from the masters.

A volume rocker sits above this, and a 3.2 megapixel camera with an LED flash can be found on the back. There's no dedicated camera button on the left edge, but it's not much of an inconvenience to reach for the central D-pad button to take a shot....

Nokia C5 review

 

Simple, stylish and affordable, is the C5 the ultimate mid-range Series 60 smartphone?

A sleek, affordable smartphone with a host of great features, but Wi-Fi is a big miss

Nokia C5 review

 

This relatively inexpensive mobile phone won't appeal to business users or those who are interested in the latest and greatest touchscreen smartphones, but its updated phonebook, free turn-by-turn navigation and access to Nokia's Ovi application store...

The Nokia C5 won't get you excited, but if you're after a relatively inexpensive smartphone and aren't interested in touchscreens then it may be worth a look.

The Nokia C5 is a defiantly old school phone strutting its stuff in an age where smartphones are becoming the norm. Read on to see whether or not the Nokia C5 can keep up with the kids.What we likeTurning…

Nokia C5 Review

 

I am sure many Nokia devotees have a strong sympathy towards the Nokia C5 handset and especially for you guys I come along with a short Nokia C5 review. The Nokia C5 the first smartphone in the C-series with S60 3rd edition OS on the board.

This fully-functional smartphone has a ridiculously cheap price tag – surely there must be a catch?

Nokia C5 Review by 3G.co.uk

 

If you're after a phone for calls and messaging without

Classy looks, easy to use, with handy mapping extras

There are limited features to play with

If you're after a phone for calls and messaging without compromising on looks, then the Nokia C5 could be justthe job.

Nokia C5 review

 

The Nokia C5 is a candybar phone running the Symbian S60 3rd Edition smartphone OS, so if you want a powerful phone without it looking like a tech-toy this could well be the phone for you. It's slim, it's smart, but is it worth your dosh? Find out what...

Neat, trim design with a build quality that feels as though it can survive a good kicking

No Wi-Fi and the standard keypad makes emails tricky to handle

Nokia's filtering down of smartphone tech into the mainstream is great, but it does result in a device that may struggle to find a market
