Nokia E5 Review
|| Review: September 2010
Last updated Sep 2012.
In a nutshell: The Nokia E5 is
a business phone with smart looks, an excellent QWERTY keyboard,
full email support, fast internet access, plus the usual smartphone
features such as A-GPS, Wi-Fi, and plenty of memory. But watch
out for freezing, switching off and loss of signal.
The E5 is an update of the Nokia E71, or
perhaps a budget version of the Nokia E72.
Either way you look at it, the E5 is a good phone, and a true rival
to the BlackBerry Bold range. The E5 isn't quite as slim as the E71
or E72, but it's no heavier. A makeover has given it attractive modern
looks with a smart metallic stripe across the navigation buttons. The
E5 is slightly cheaper than the E72, but the only things missing are
the front camera (so no video calling) and a reduced number of colours
for the TFT display (262k instead of 16 million.) No big deal, we suspect,
for most buyers.
We've previously reviewed the E71 and E72 in depth, so we're not going
to cover the same ground here. We'll just say that the E5 is a good
business phone with a superb QWERTY keyboard. And it's a Series 60 smartphone
running Symbian OS version v. 9.3, so you have access to all the apps
in the Ovi Store. But like so many Symbian phones, the E5 sometimes
freezes or shuts down, and a number of users have complained about loss
of signal. As a business phone, that could be a killer.
Features of the Nokia E5 include:
- 5 megapixel camera with full focus, LED flash and 3x digital zoom
- VGA video camera with 3x digital zoom
- Display: TFT, 256,000 colours, 240 x 320 pixels (2.36 inches)
- Music Player (mp3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA formats)
- FM radio with RDS support
- MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA ringtones / video ringtones
- Voice memo recording
- Integrated A-GPS with Nokia Maps
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, email (POP3, IMAP4 and
SMTP protocols), Instant messaging
- Attachment viewer for Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel
- Symbian and Java™ MIDP 2.0 applications
- Internet: Web browser, WAP, GPRS, EDGE,
HSPA up to 10.2 Mbps download
- Connectivity: WLAN 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, micro-USB,
3.5 mm audio jack
- Memory: 256 Mbytes plus 2GB microSD card (up to 32 GB supported)
- Vibration alert
- Quadband (850/900/1800/1900) plus triband 3G HSPA
- Size: 115 x 59 x 13 mm
- Weight: 126g
- Battery: 1200 mAh Li-Ion
- Talktime: 5 hours (3G) - 13 hours (2G)
- Battery standby: 635 hours - 670 hours

Got the phone for company use and its safe to say I would never buy
a Nokia myself from this experience, the menus are slow, the signal
drops off when it feels like it and I turned my email off as it was
so frustrating, the display is barely visible in direct sunlight, very
disappointing. Nokia used to be THE name in mobile phones a long time
ago, but they need to up their game if this is the best they can do
as they are way behind other manufacturers!!

Problems include random freezing, loss of sound, refusing to allow me
to add to my calender until I restart the phone, not synchronising with
Microsoft Outlook, won't recognize my pass word, key pad brutal etc
etc etc. Don't buy it!

This phone is a great value for money, it gives you everything you need
from a smart phone with it's ultra awesome keypad, you have youtube,
streaming support in realplayer but no flash. You get to chat, recieve
emails surf the web, download everything you want in a snap. It's a
good fast phone.
One major issue: is the freezing sometimes when you are connected to
a wifi and you have to restart the phone but I think that this is an
OS issue not a phpne issue, but it rarely happens.

This is a beautifully designed phone especially the white version (which

helpful feature. the battery life is good when umts is diabled but barely
lasts 12hrs if it is. the phone hangs quite often which is irritating
but the interface is quite fast. the screen is horrible on power saver

In a word, no! Do not buy this phone! I have one on contract from Orange
and have experienced no end of problems, still ongoing, with the handset.
These range from "memory full" messages when the phone memory mysteriously
fills up with unnamed files rendering it practically unuseable, to continual
failure of software updates! I have owned a number of Nokias and, prior
to the E5, have always been most impressed, but this phone has serious
issues. Only plus points are the QWERTY keyboard and good battery life.
Wish I'd have gone for a Blackberry!

Nice size, weight and look. it doesn't work though. A disaster of a
phone that has crashed more times than Amy Winehouse. Light inexplicably
comes on of its own accord. Turns itself off occasionally and just now
I have plugged it into charge and it will not turn on (yes even after
a hard reset). Knackered. I do not recommend this phone. I should have
got something better. I used to abide by Nokia, not now. Technology
has gone one step beyond their abilities. Sorry Nokia. it seems this
time you have gone beyond your capabilities.

Are we talking about the same phone? I had and loved the Nokia N71 for
3 years had no problems with it. Hence why I never upgraded. Wear and
tear had caused be to upgrade, So I decided to go for the E5. I mean,
if its in the same class as the N71 then It should be excellent. So
I taught. Nice phone, a bit childish with the icons. Lovely keyboard.
But the thing keeps crashing on me with SMS messages and emails. I have
to reset the phone everyday to avoid this. I upgraded the firmware too,
same problem. Coming from the N71 it [N71] makes this phone look and
run poor. All in all a good phone but not a N71 !!

Simply the best phone ever. Had really looked at the Blackberry Curve
3G but this does everything and...has a longer batter life which was
the big thing. OK it doesn't have a great screen outdoors - can be customised
though. Email set up is a doddle using the wizard - even for aol accounts.
Texts are easy to compose, though shortcuts are less so until you work
it out. Call quality is outstanding something lacking in this day. The
build feels a quality handset and indeed appears far more expensive
than it is (pay as you talk customer here!) Altogether a great phone
for those who text, email and call.

All I want to say is people from the UK are expecting too much from
this phone.You don't get Android and a great business phone with a great
camera with a qwerty keypad at the price of the E5.Hell the E72 costs
much more than the E5 and it doesn't have enough features worth the
price. Bottom line is if you want the camera and the movies go for an
android samsung phone.If internet,connectivity,calls and messaging is
your priority then go for the E5. The E5 is having a decent camera and
it is a great business phone with a good qwerty keypad and browsing
on it is great and it's music player is loud and clear though it has
only one speaker and if you put in a little more and buy a decent pair
of headsets then the music is excellent as well. For it's price and
in this price range you can't get a better business phone with a qwerty
keypad other than the E5.It's worth the price.

I have only had this phone for a day after having the nokia 5800 xpress
music. I decided on this phone because it was an affordable qwerty keyboard
phone and I love it already, although the screen does scratch easily.

I got this phone as a upgrade. It feels as a downgrade, meaning it came
out after the e71 and e72. Quality wise not as good as both of them.
It freezes about once a month. But the battery is very good and torch
function. Camera isn,t that good, nor is the speaker. Overall i,ts a
cheaper replacement for the e71& e72 Which may not be a bad thing, in

After all Nokia phones in the last 10 years I decided it was time for
a change and toyed with the idea of a Blackberry Bold then the E5 came
out and I had to have it. I was not disapointed at all the battery life
is excellent it has a good camera generaly pleasant overall feel.

More like a sidegrade dog's dinner than an upgrade! I've owned an N95
and an E71 and was hoping this phone would combine the best of both
- the 5MP camera of the N95 and over the air contact/cal (activesync)
of the E71 (unlike the abortive N97 I briefly owned last year). What
we actually have is something that's rather less than either. The camera
is much poorer than the N95, the screen is awful and unlike both N95/E71
I can't get the SIP VoIP to work. It's also, like all Nokia's, very
buggy. The assending ring tone feature seems to do nothing and the menus
are not only as hopeless as ever, but the icons rearanged (again). It's
ONLY saving feature is the support for HD voice (the reason I bought
it)... which is actually quite good, if you can find someone else mad
enough to buy one of the two Nokia phones (E5/5230) that support it.
This is the last Nokia I'm going to own... I gave them two years and
had 3 "flagship" phones, all with similar issues. For all their faults,
the iPhone and Android device are at least usable.
