Nokia C5 First Impressions – are we impressed?


Some 4 months ago, Nokia launched the second C
Series device powered by Symbian S60, the C5.
Good for people running on a tight budget, find out if this Symbian impressed us or not in our first phone review!

Looks like size zero in tech is in.. Yes, this phone felt almost half in my hands, which are used to E63. As a person who’s used to QWERTY for almost an year now, going back on T9, even for a review seemed
painful at first. Things started looking up after some texting and tweeting. That, in itself is a big compliment to the keypad quality.


Included in the box piece are a 2 GB micro SD card, a headset, a micro USB cable and a charger. The Box was very, very small in size, and that’s got to do with Nokia’s environment friendly practise. We’re impressed and that’s 2 on 2 till now.
