Nokia E5 – Is it as Easy to Use as it Looks?

25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: In all its QWERTY-ness, the Nokia E5 made it out and its popularity has been steadily increasing since its launch. It’s no BlackBerry, but then again it offers no presumptions of being one. The E5 looks like a slightly higher-end and much needed update to the E63 which was Nokia's affordable E-series business class phone for those users who didn’t have the extra Rs. 6000 to shell out for the E72. Here’s a closer look.

Nokia E5 Review: In Depth

7 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The successor to the E72, Nokia's E5 is the latest in its range of straight-laced business-focused handsets. The E5 definitely shares a look with its predecessor, but it couldn't feel more different to hold. Can the same be said for using it?

Nokia E5 (Unlocked)

PC Magazine
14 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The Nokia E5 is a solid, affordable messaging smartphone, but it feels increasingly obsolete as we head into 2011.
  • Pros: Quality construction and QWERTY keyboard. Free, global GPS navigation. Low price for an unlocked smartphone.
  • Cons: Dim, low-res screen. Dated OS. MicroSD card slot buried beneath the battery.

The Nokia E5 Review: A Cheaper E72

30 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Never have I both loved and hated a device as much as the Nokia E5-00. Before we move on to my thoughts on the E5 itself, let’s get some facts straight here. Symbian v9.x is old and dated and there really is no other way of putting it. While it certainly gets the job done, and in some cases does pretty well, it still is an aging platform that doesn’t try very hard to hide its shortfalls.

Review: Nokia E5

All About Symbian
27 November 2010
  • Summary: Nokia's mission for the forward-facing, messaging-centric QWERTY market (think Blackberry)? Take the best selling E71/E63/E72 concept, interpret it in 2010 design language, beef up the internals and try to sell it for as low a price as possible while making as few compromises as possible. The result is the E5, announced way back in April but, surprisingly, not available until now.

Nokia E5 Review

29 September 2010
  • Summary: One of the most recent Nokia smartphones is the Nokia E5. The Nokia E5 handset has a full Qwerty keyboard and is a follow-up of what Nokia offered with the Nokia E71 and E63 models. The Nokia E5 cell phone is especially aimed at the business user, who will also use the Nokia smartphone for personal use. That is actually a pretty logical and practically-oriented target group. A large part of business users also actively use their phone for personal use.
  • Cons: Good dual home screen system, Good battery life, Keyboard is well made, Very customisable front screen features, Ovi maps can be is very handy, Screen is too small, Web browsing is squint-inducing, Camera is poor, Ovi Maps doesn’t do much for walkers

Nokia E5 Review

Phone Arena
28 September 2010
  • Conclusion: We would be happy to recommend the Nokia E5. With a slightly more lackluster finish at a more appealing price-tag than its E72 sibling, and most other similarly classed phones, it certainly does the key things it needs to do pretty well. The slightly unrefined finish of the Nokia E5 does crop up from time to time, with the screen resolution, cramped keypad and awkward volume-rocker occasionally hindering use.
  • Pros: Good price point, Comprehensive business feature set, Solid feel, Great email device
  • Cons: 3G reception poor at times, Stiff volume rocker, Dated OS look

Nokia E5-00

Mobile Review
28 September 2010
  • Summary: Traditionally, I have no complaints about the communication quality. This model is a typical representative of the current generation. Ringtones offer above average volume, but at the maximum level the loudspeaker has slightly unclear sound with squeaking. The vibro is average or closer to weak. Nokia is the only company to offer QWERTY smartphones on S60, so the competition is inside Nokia product range. Only E63 is cheaper.

Expert Review

9 September 2010
  • Summary: While it's apparent that smartphones equipped with comfortably sized capacitive-based touchscreens are the popular choice, there are some who prefer the good old physical QWERTY keyboards and a non-touchscreen display. Case in point, Nokia's E-series which includes the widely popular Nokia E71, followed by the Nokia E72.
