Nokia E5 review
|Review: September 2010|
Last updated September 2012
In a nutshell: The Nokia E5 is a business phone with an excellent QWERTY keyboard and full email support. But watch out for freezing, switching off and loss of signal.
Today's best buy: Nokia E5-00 (Carbon black) s ... from Amazon (£0)
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.
Nokia E5 features 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

I have had an E5 over a year. Since new the handset will occasionally freeze when attemting to text. Usually after recipient is chosen ie cannot enter text. Back cover off, remove and reinstall battery, and its starts fine a works ok awhile. Tried software updates, enquired at relevant mobile phone shop. No one interested - ie get used to it. Not Good, have had Nokia since day one - never again, time to go Android however hate touch screen!!!

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!!

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.

The Nokia E5 is a professional looking phone. Easy to use and simple to understand. I have not been able to set up my email. I do lose signal, I am with 3 and chose them as my provider because of locality of mast and have never had problems with signal on any other phone. I don't like the fact that there isn't a shortcut on the keyboard for the & sign and the light blue/white keyboard backing light does pose problems with seeing the keyboard at times. All in all, I am please with the E5.

I upgraded from an E63 to an E5 in December 2010 and everything was fine up until approx two months ago when the software was updated, I am now getting memory full C: constantly (I have even deleted apps off phone memory to try and clear this) calls have been dropped even in areas I could previously get good reception, emails don't automaticly update. I'm thinking of buying a Samsung Europa and putting the E5 in a draw with all the other junk.

Same here Mike. I keep getting messages like - Text message. Not enough memory to perform operation. Delete some data first ! - Web: Not enough memory to perform operation. Delete some data first ! I've removed data from the C: drive, wiped the mobile clean and reinstalled the software, yet the problem remains. What's worrying is that I'm finding it very difficult to find any solution to the problem.

This is a beautifully designed phone especially the white version (which i have), the camera is actually quite good during the day, but suffers during the night, although the flash does do an adequate job but not good enough for me. the flash can also be used as a torch which is a 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 especially in the sunlight. its rich in software and comes with free ovi navigation software. keypad is a bit small but u'll get used to it

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.

Good phone, typical high Nokia quality, froze once or twice but a firmware update cured that, gps very good, menus a bit clunky and a very disappointing camera are the main bugs for me...if they sorted those..and changed its operating system to Android it'd be perfect. I've been with Nokia for many years, I used to build Nokia sat boxes and know the lengths they go to for quality, but next phone will be Android, S60 has had its day & is now left so far behind its not funny, its infuriating to see all the great apps for Android and less and less for S60, c'mon Nokia change to Android, and quit nuking your phones with crazy drm software!
