Excerpt: I’ve owned the Nokia E5 for a few months now, and I have to say it’s a decent phone. Before you scoff at the fact that it’s Nokia, hear me out.First off, Nokia makes really great phones. This thing not only has great call quality, the build of it is simply amazing. Two idiot friends of mine were fighting to use it and managed to throw the phone about 7 feet, where it landed and slid across the floor. There was only one tiny scratch.
Excerpt: I have owned my Nokia E5 for two years now and am overall fairly satisfied. It is easy to use and has some personalization settings that have enabled me to personalize it a bit. I have not used the phone for data, but I imagine it would be frustrating with such a small screen.
One issue I had was that roughly every 6 months I had to factory reset it as the vibrating and ringtones stopped working around that time. This caused me to lose everything except my contacts.
Summary: I am just coming to the end of a two year contract with this phone and can't wait for an upgrade. It's a very solid phone that looks really good but some aspects left me wanting something different. I like the keyboard style key pad which I have grown to love not having to press buttons several times to get the right letter. I also love the free sat nav that comes with the phone . It's really handy but essential to have an in car charger as the battery drains fast.
Summary: the nokia E5's USP much like the earlier nokia E3 is its qwerty keyboard. it takes up more than half of the phones large front and out of all the phones i have owned this has definetly been the easiest to use the keypad on making texting a quick and easy process whcih is a vital feature that many other mobiles seem to forget about in the name of style. the screen on the phone is pretty awful considering its quite a recent release.
Excerpt: "I have always chosen Nokia phones for my personal mobile as no matter what ideas they come up with they are always user friendly and follow the same basic ideas so you can go from one to another without much hassle and them becoming too complicated. When I first got the Nokia E5 I believed it was just what I had become to expect from Nokia, easy to use and up to date. The phone is quite big compared to some of the minute phones you can get nowadays, ...
Pros: Easy to use, great camera, easy to navigate
Cons: The speakers are poor, loss of sound on texts
Nokia E5: Nokia E-5, from the perspective of a Blackberry User.
24 May 2011
Summary: I bought my Nokia E5 a while back and it wasn't up to scratch. Like many of the most recent Nokia phones, the interface and the Symbian software is very slow in comparison to the Iphone operating system or even the Blackberry system. Nokia has had several issues with their operating system, as it offers a slow alternative to other phones. I was attracted to the Nokia E5 as it was different than the Blackberry. Everyone had the Blackberry, but now I know why.
Pros: Cheaper than BB, easy to text, good battery life.
