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?
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Excerpt: If you're a fan of E71 and E72 smartphones, then you're gonna like the new Nokia E5, especially that its features are almost on par with the above mentioned devices.

Pros: The main thing that might motivate a customer to buy this phone is the QWERTY keyboard, as well as the solid build. Once you get the phone in your hand and check its other features, you discover the 5.0-megapixel camera, multiple connectivity options (HSDPA, Bluetooth, microUSB, Wi-Fi), as well a...
Cons: The smartphone has a few downsides that could've been avoided: camera is lacking any advanced features or autofocus, the display under-performs, especially when using apps, the microSD card which is not ho-swappable, integrated web browser is bugged and freezes sometimes.
