The Nokia C5-00 is one of Nokia’s newer cell phones barely a couple of months old. I’ve been using mine for 2 months now and I can honestly say that it is one of the finer electronic gadgets I’ve had the pleasure of owning. I’m going to give you an honest consumer’s view of the cell, without all the technical details. Let you know exactly how well it works for the everyday user.

The first thing that you notice about the c5-00 is the superb, sleek and simple design. It has a very simplistic structure and curved edges and can easily fit into your pockets with an ease that’s almost sinful. The buttons are all placed for perfect tactile advantage and apart from the usual keys there is a separate button on the side for zooming and volume control.

It has an internal memory of 50MB and extendable to 16GB. What’s great about it is that the extendable memory microSD port is located outside of the phone. So you don’t need to strip it naked just to change the card. You have to do that only to change the simcard.

The screen size is large enough for viewing without straining your eyes with a resolution of 320x240 pixels and about 16 million colors. The phone shines with its dual camera’s. One on the back cover (3.2 MP) and a VGA camera in the front, for checking up on whoever is stalking you. The camera flash is also great, additionally usable as a flash light whenever you’re out adventuring at night.

It comes inbuilt with GPS, GPRS and 3G compatibility making it a very connectivity savvy phone. It has facebook and MySpace software inbuilt but alas twitter was left out. I guess you can always download something for that. With its symbian series 60 operating system, getting homebrew apps is a cinch.

The music player quality in the phone is great but lacks the high fidelity outputs of the walkman phones or iPods. Capable of playing mp3, mp4 , aac and wma format, it suits most of my musical cravings. It comes preloaded with games and most office organization software’s and the operating system is smooth and efficient. Unlike other symbian phones which suffer from constant hangs and restarts. This one is quite stable and has yet to disappoint me. It has a battery life of 12 hours on talk and boasts of 630 hours on standby. Personally I’ve found that it can honestly go a week without a recharge, on minimal calls and music listening. Overall I find the Nokia c5-00 to be an excellent phone and the price range at which it is being made available makes it a good buy for the normal user who goes beyond just talking on a phone. It’s the quintessential all in one phone right now at an affordable price tag.
