Nokia C5-03

 

The Nokia C5-03 may be a smartphone, but dated software means it's not a clever choice for most buyers.

Relatively high-resolution screen, Built-in podcast downloader, 3.5mm headphone jack

Dated OS, Resistive touchscreen, No LED flash

Nokia C5-03 review

 

Great battery life, but ancient OS still leaves a sour taste

Overall, we're a little non-plussed by the C5. It's an acceptable phone that's using an OS in dire need of updating - if we'd had Symbian^3 on here, it might have been a little different. But see past the battery life, and you'll realise the likes of...

Nokia C5-03 review

 

The updated C5 is a baby step in the smart direction

Ease of use/familiar interface ; Addition of Wi-Fi ; Decent screen size and resolution ; Lightweight, dependable handset with great battery life

Resistive touchscreen ; Outdated networking apps ; Average internet browsing experience ; Lack of good apps in Ovi store

Upon first touch, the Nokia C5-03 is sleek but not stunning, chunky but light enough, and rocks minimalistic buttons, touchscreen capability and a shiny derriere.

Nokia C5-03 review -

 

The mapping experience is top-notch, with fast and extremely accurate pinpointing of your position

The lack of zooming options and auto-fit means a large amount of scrolling is needed when browsing the net

Nokia C5-03

 

The phone does not have a clear target audience and it is not attractive on its own – it is more of an unpopular item that is offered in stores as an inexpensive touchscreen Nokia

Nokia C5-03 Review

 

Thanks to Nokia's decision to move back to the Symbian series 60, and the phone's unreliable touchscreen, buyers looking for an entry-level smartphone may well be tempted to look elsewhere

: We were really impressed with the phone's mapping offering, which was speedy and very accurate

: Web browsing is marred by the omission of both zooming and autofit, which means you'll be doing a lot of scrolling

As we said at the start, handset manufactures have been cutting corners to bring low-price smartphones to market, but what the C5-03 fails to do is offer the ease of use expected from a low-cost phone. This is mostly because of the inclusion of the...

You're far better off with a low price smartphone, or one of those lo-fi phones with buttons

Small and sturdy, Ovi Maps

Symbian S60 5th edition. How we hate it
