My Nokia 5130 just got fried. And as it was just over 1 year Nokia is not going to listen. When the intelligent people at Nokia Care faileds to reboot my mobile I went to find a better atleast costlier one. i had always thought of the E series. So I enquired. the Mobile Store at Cuttack told me E63 and E71 are out of production. E72 is at Rs16800 and E5 isat Rs11800. I made a little enquiry. E72 is the best but old with only 128 RAM but Eg has 256 MB. But I overlooked the fact that E72 has front camera and it has autofocuss. Now i regret it. So afte some pondering I purchased it and infact I am writing this blogpost from my E5 itself via BSNLGPRS. Though the keyboard is OK to write on lack of front side camera and costly 3G in India are killing me. Let us see how my E5 works out.
By the way I do not know why videos downloaded from Youtube do not play on this device. Some one in the forums told me that probably it is due to the fact that the flv files need a swf player to play. But I have downloaded flv format files from Procedure Consult website. And they play on E5 quite well.
I am a little bit dissapointed over its mediocre camera quality especially its led flash which is a spoiler. But the led flash works pretty decently as a flashlight. Just hold the space bar down to on/off.
Rs1400 for one year extended warranty for this mobile which I bought for Rs11350 from The Mobile Store on 27th November 2010 is way too high.
The guys at the mobile store told me that the cost was around 100 to 200.
So I feel cheated. But the fully functional office suite by quick office with excel, word, powerpoint and pdf was definitely what I expected from E series.
All in all a mixed experience.
