So, let’s state first that the Nokia C5-03 isn’t related towards the Nokia C5. The C5 is really a candy bar handset we reviewed earlier. The C5-03 operates S60 fifth edition – the touch screened version, and is definitely an all-screen, small structure handset.
The Nokia C5-03 packs a reasonably good selection of specifications. HSDPA operates to 10. 2Mbps download and 2Mbps add. There is Wi-Fi as well as A-GPS. Ovi Roadmaps delivers free of charge turn through turn routing. There’s 40MB associated with internal memory along with a microSD card slot about the right aspect under back plate that contains a 2GB card. You may hot swap cards, but the back plate is very flimsy as well as you’ll have to take care to not snap this.

There is a 5-megapixel camera without any flash therefore taking pictures indoors within dull conditions is a challenge. Video is restricted to 640×352 pixels.

Tone of voice calling is actually clear as well as loud. Volume about the Nokia C5-03 was excellent and audibility had been on par. We noticed natural as well as clear sounds on the end and about the other points were just like good, our callers noticed us obviously and all of us sounded organic.

Battery life about the Nokia C5-03 is extremely good along with quoted speak time associated with 11.5 hours and standby period of 25 days. In actuality, we found we’re able to get 2 days from the battery along with moderate make use of.

End User Review:

All of us appreciate Nokia’s make an effort to deliver a reasonable smartphone however the dated Symbian^1 stands when it comes to enjoying the almost complete connectivity package and also the 600MHz associated with processing energy. Because of this, we believe low-end Android handsets, such as the HTC Wildfire and also the LG Optimus One, also possess connectivity protected well and may be your own alternative.

There are lots of setbacks that may break the offer for the actual C5-03: some from the apps such as the gallery and also the browser are simply terribly sluggish, Symbian is full of menus, which cause you to feel as if you are inside a maze, and lastly the set focus camera doesn’t impress.

Currently, the Nokia C5-03 comes at the retail price around $280, but the telephone is nevertheless expected in several markets with the broader launch we are able to expect it’s price to obtain somewhat reduce. Nokia makes its way into deeper to the budget as well as mid-range smart phone markets with the C5-03 it’s some great potential. The cost is less expensive than upon current low-end Androids for instance and makes up for a few of the issues. If you’re in store for any balanced telephone with great functionality and may live having a dated OPERATING SYSTEM, you will dsicover the Nokia C5-03 perfect.
