SANS - Survey on application security programs

It is also very useful that the display tells you how much data you’ve downloaded in any one session (if you haven’t obtained what you need off-line already). Those with a cap will want to keep an eye on the stats. Overall I found Ovi Maps effective, and on a larger screened handset with a louder speaker it might meet all my navigation needs – but not on this phone.

Nokia C5

Compact and capable with a good battery life

Call quality was fine and without the drain of a large screen or power hungry processor, battery life was great. After a weekend of usage including two hours of satnav, the battery status was on five of its six bars.

Verdict

I’ve got to admire Nokia’s keenness to put Ovi Maps on every handset in its portfolio, but when a screen is just 2.2in across diagonal corners it is not particularly workable. Yet the Nokia C5 is a compact, well-made, functional handset with good user ergonomics, as far as the keypad goes. If you are a frequent texter who regards this as a primary activity, it is certainly a handset to consider. ®
