The Nokia C5-03 is an affordable 3G touchscreen smartphone that runs the Symbian S60 5th Edition OS. The 3.2 inch resistive display packs 640 x 360 and supports kinetic scrolling. A resistive touchscreen is made of 3 layers and requires you to put pressure on it to sense the area of touch. The resistive touchscreen works with any pointing devices like stylus, pen, or even nail. The use of pointing device makes the touch screen usage more accurate.

A 5 megapixel camera sits on the rear panel of the C5-03, and shoots at maximum resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. Nokia has included multiple shooting modes in the Nokia C5-03's camera including a Manual Mode, that gives you control over ISO, white balance and exposure. The phone can record VGA videos at 15 fps with the option of directly sharing them on Facebook or Twitter.


The C5-03 sports an all-plastic glossy body with a textured bottom cap. Nokia has stuck to physical keys for Menu and Call Answer/End functions. The phone measures a little under 14 mm and weighs 93 g, coupled with the rounded edges, it makes for ergonomic and portable design.

On the top spine sits the 3.5 mm headphone socket and micro USB port. The right edge of the C5-03 houses the lock button and a volume rocker. A standard cylindrical pin Nokia charging point occupies the bottom edge. An accelerometer aids in auto-orientation of the screen while a proximity sensor controls the auto-turn off of the display. The Digital Compass installed in the handset gives you directions to the desired location.

Battery and Storage

The Nokia C5-03 is powered by a Li-Ion 1000 mAh and gives 11 hours and 4 hours of talktime in 2G and 3G networks respectively. The internal memory of 40 MB can be expanded up to 16 GB with a microSD card. The phone can be charged either by plugging it to the mains via the charging pin or by connecting to a PC through the USB port.

The Nokia C5-03 has a built-in A-GPS module that allows turn-by-turn voice navigation for walking and driving directions. The free navigation support via Ovi Maps, gives the C5-03 an edge over smartphones in the same price bracket.

Well, its nokia..and its vintage

I am not an anti-Nokia fan.. but to be honest, why Nokia phones lag to the core.. The reason behind is Symbian ! seriously ?..why a series 60 Symbian still ? common..its way too old.. and the hardware of Nokia doesn't seem to cope up with their software..and the Ram in this phone is pathetic..Whats the point of 3.2 inch screen with serious lag with UI ..This age old Symbian doesn't work fine on this 6000mhz procy? ..seriously?? would work in this procy without any lag.. For this bu...

Terrible phone.

This phone fails in almost everything it boasts to be. For the price I paid for this phone, I regret it each day. A dumb phone would have been miles better. The camera is not actually 5 MP. Really average quality by current standards Applications start slow and tend to lag when you run them. Calling the screen resistive is an understatement. It was practically unresponsive on several occasions. Gone are the days I could type messages swiftly. I kick myself everyday for having bought this phon...
