Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Using Ovi maps for turn-by-turn navigation is also a bit of a challenge with a screen this size. Likewise, social networking with is a bit of a chore with such limited acreage, and I can't see anyone using the rather stunted Facebook app regularly.

Ovi maps

The combined FM and Internet radio application deserves a mention in dispatches for being extremely easy to use and pleasant to listen to as does the UPnP/DLNA media streaming app. The 1200mAh battery is 300mAh smaller than that fitted to the E72 but I still got a solid two days between charges despite regular use of both the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS radios.

A few frills and does the basics well

Verdict

Signal reception and call quality were of a uniformly high standard and the speaker was both loud and clear. Say what you will about Nokia, it does have these basic aspects of handset design down pat. Orange is offering the E5 on contract for free, but to buy it Sim-free it'll set you back around £200 which, considering it has all the E72's core functionality but is around £60 less, I'd say the E5 is a better value handset. ®
