Advantages: qwerty keyboard, good battery
Disadvantages: feels cheapy, poor screen
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. the low pixel count makes it difficult to read things on quite a small screen.
as far as the styling of the mobile goes it looks good at the moment. its a phone that now even looks a little retro seeing as all mobiles now have touchscreens but with the speed at which the mobile phone market is changing, this phone will soon feel out dated. it also feels a little on the light side and the back feels thin and is made of plastic. its small details like this that reduce the overall quality of the phone.
the phone comes with symbian op system which although has had improvements from the more recent nokia mobiles still lacks behind its android and apple rivals for functionality. browsing the web is predictably difficult when not using a touchscreen to controlm online browsing.
the camera is typical 5.0 megapixel but is no good at taking in focus images in usual light situations. it does have an LED flash but i didnt find this usefull in any low light light situations.
the nokia E5 can be found sim free for around £200 which when considering its rivals being the blackberry curve. the blackberry exceed a lot of features that the nokia can offer.
Summary: another of your average nokia mobiles. cheap but doesnt impress beyond rivals
