Unlocked Phone

This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider. It does not come with a SIM card, and it requires that you provide a SIM card for usage with your selected service provider. This phone comes with a full manufacturer's warranty.

In areas not served by a 3G network, you'll continue to receive data service via EDGE network (depending on network compatibility).

Note that the downloading of maps, games, music and videos and uploading of images and videos involves transferring large amounts of data. Your service provider may charge for the data transmission, and the availability of particular services and features may vary by carrier.

Stay on top of all your communications: from instant messaging and corporate e-mail to Twitter and Facebook (see larger image).

No Hidden Costs

The new version of Ovi Maps comes with all the maps and high-end, car grade navigation features you need for free and is yours to keep for the life of the smartphone. No additional licenses needed for extra countries, regions or services like traffic information or city guides. Data charges from network operators may apply.

Voice Guidance and Traffic Information

Turn-by-turn, voice guided navigation comes free for both drivers and pedestrians. For drivers this includes lane assistance, traffic information, safety camera, and speed warnings. For pedestrians, this includes shortcuts through parks and pedestrian-only zones for over 100 cities around the world as well as 6,000 3D landmarks in over 200 cities to help you find exactly where you are.

Unique Hybrid Technology

Ovi Maps is built on an advanced technology called hybrid vector maps. Vector maps are high quality but less data intensive and allow you to continue to navigate even if you lose your network connection. This means that maps downloaded or updated across a network connection are about half the size of bulky bitmaps used by other mobile map providers. The hybrid technology ensures that, unlike other providers, any downloaded map data is stored on the device for future use.

No Network Connection Required When Navigating

Avoid expensive, battery-draining network connections with Nokia's unique hybrid technology. Maps can be pre-loaded on to your Nokia smartphone so you can set Ovi Maps to offline mode, saving battery power, and the navigation system will still work. This is particularly useful for those worried about data connection costs when travelling abroad or when you are travelling through areas with little or no network coverage.

Best Global Coverage

You take your mobile with you wherever you go in the world so, as standard, voice guided navigation for both pedestrians and drivers is available for 74 countries in 46 different languages and there are maps for over 180 countries. This gives you the best maps with the largest global coverage for free.

I was hesitatig about buying this product since there some reviews stating that this phone is below E72. Well, it is in absolute numbers since it does not come with secondary camera, which I've never used in E71 and E72, however, the SO is clearly more stable and runs faster, designed also to incorporate facebook and twiter among other social networks apps natively.
Also, the assisted GPS computes your position faster than E72. I can say this because I did a simple benchmark between them. E5 took less than 10 secs, E72 more than 3 minutes.
The keyboard, although similar in size and key distribution, is more comfortable, I guess it is due to an improved key shape and they are slighly wider, which is very noticeable when writing.
The camera is 5MP, I guess is the same. I have to say that comparing only pixels in cámeras is like comparing food only with calories or cars with hp. There are more things to evaluate.

The construction.... well, I don't know why people complain a lot about plastic construction since it's very similar to that of the E72, all plastic but the battery cover, made of stainless steel, which gives a nice feeling. Ok, it is not fron a casting as the E71 but that doesn't mean it has a weak built, it feels rock solid and less suceptible to be damaged since it weights less and then less energy is needed to be absorbed, thus less prone to be damaged.

In general conclusion it's a great phone, with less features like the secondary camera, which I never use, but it costs less and IT HAS improvements learned from the very unstable E72.

A Kid's Review on November 28, 2010
This phone is perfect for the price. The phone has all the features on the E71 and E72 with a few new features preinstalled due to having a recent build. The ear piece volume and speakerphone needs to be adjusted upwards. The speakerphone volume is really too low. Nokia must have purposely lowered the volume 2 allow the device to consume less energy. The case or housing for the Nokia E5-00 is not well constructed as the E72 with the metal crome outlining the exterior.
Where this device pays for itself is with the navagation. Its free for the life of the hand set.
For an unlocked price this device wins my heart.

Have had mine (white) about a month.
Very good call quality.
Very good keyboard. Can accurately thumb type fast enough to make texting & email practical.
Syncs reliably to Mac via iSync plug-in.
Syncs reliably to Nokia Ovi Suite on Win7.
Nokia email app good for most users. For those with quirky email needs, ProfiMail from LonelyCatGames is great.
Nokia browser is pretty good, but with the memory available on the phone Opera Mobile browser is a must have.
Nokia chat app is very good.
FM radio and the Radio app work great.
Battery life is really good. However, once it gets drained to some unknown point, it seems to die pretty soon after.
Screen is a bit small for me since I came from a E61 and XM5800. It is quite readable and fairly bright.
Only four stars because of the need to install a 3rd-part shell/task/app manager (HandyShell in my case) and the lack of depth in apps at the Nokia Ovi Store and the fading support for Symbian S60 in general.

Ok, so I purchased this for a few reasons a) I didn't want to get locked into a contract with AT&T because I don't want a data plan and all the new phones try to force it on you; b)No touchscreen!!! (I hate touchscreens); c) It has buttons!! :) (Did I mention that I hate touchscreen?); c) This phone was advertised as being both US and Int'l. A little bird who works for AT&T told me that their system has trouble reading int'l phones. If their system sees a smart phone it will automatically add a data plan whether you ask for it or not (that just seems illegal to me!.) However, they have trouble with int'l phones so the data plans may not automatically be added. [In my case, that didn't work completely. A data plan was added. I did call and demanded that the data plan be removed. The girl I spoke with did seem to have trouble figuring out what kind of cell phone I had. She kept asking me for specifics on it, which I did not give her. All she got out of me was "I have a Nokia" and "No, I don't know what kind it is". The data plan came off. (Hope it stays off!!)]

So, the phone has buttons and does not have touchscreen!! YAY!! (This is HUGE in my book!) Overall, I think I like this phone. I really loved my old phone so it was difficult accepting a new one but as I've gotten used to it, I do like it. It has great reception. It's fast.... text messages go out quickly, wifi is quick. I do like the GPS feature that comes with the phone, especially since you don't need internet to use it. I must warn everyone that the phone will need updates and FYI, updating the GPS maps can take a VERY long time. I started the process at work and had to leave my phone at work overnight because after 6 hours, the map updates were only about 50% complete.

Great phone, many interesting features. Beautiful resolution. Works well. Only "gripe," and it isn't such a huge one, if I take sim card out for any reason, contacts are gone when I reinsert sim in phone. Contacts remain on sim, but don't show back up on phone. Probably an operator problem, but I found that a bit annoying. It has great reception and sound. Otherwise, it is a great phone and I would recommend it to anyone looking for "Blackberry" equivalent. I actually have a Blackberry Curve (older version) and I like the Nokia much better.
