Price – Around Rs. 7500/- or $167
Nokia C5 is new in the range of products from Nokia. For the price tag with it, it’s the best valued mobile phone comparing with others. It’s gives you the Smartphone like features without hitting your your pocket hard,it looks very stylish and attractive by it’s finishing and quality what we can always expect from a leading brand like Nokia. It comes with Superb!!! quality camera that can take stunning shots at outdoors, and being a 3G capable phone along with HSPA it means you can take full advantages of your 3G connection, like watching T.V., High speed Internet access
 ( I mean really Highhh!!), Video Calling, etc, and most relishing feature that it has got A-GPS, and it’s really fast and also Nokia now provides Free Walk and Drive Navigation, it’s a great phone to have, it’s a little low as far as the sound is concern, but it gets fixed after a firmware update, and it’s comes with various software inbuilt like Facebook app,
Office Suit and all that, in the end I should say that it’s the best phone to have for that price.
