Nokia E5 - Display Operating System And Networking

Nokia E5
Nokia E5 - Display  Operating System
The screen is probably the Achilles heel E5S. It is not only smaller than 2.36 inches, but has a relatively low resolution of only 320 x 240 pixels. Text and symbols are the eye, but it is too small to use - even compared to other messaging devices. something that is not really a problem in most other mobile messaging company - can also is not at all clear the screen, so it's a bit difficult to read outdoors. In addition, the touch screen is not activated, it must therefore entirely on the D-pad navigation is slow and feels a bit in the era of touch screen smartphones obsolete.

Fortunately, Nokia E5 raised her game when it comes to the keyboard. Use the arrow keys similar style bubbles as in the E72 and found it really excellent. Organized by four rows of buttons can be small, but the way to the outside curve of the keyboard, it is easy to operate with your fingers or thumb. Nokia has again some shortcut functions are cleaner than the previous model of the E series, so you can use the shortcut key combination to activate and deactivate the LED flash on and off or mute phone Bluetooth.
Nokia E5
The user interface and performance
As with other Nokia mobile messaging, it runs Series 60 3rd Edition operating system. Series 60 can do a lot, and leave it in an encouragement rather clumsy and long term. Consequently, you end up doing a lot of clicking on the D-Pad to navigate through the user interface. Nokia has tried a bit easier with shortcuts. For example, Button Teresa on the front that leads directly to the e-mail client, and when it is pushed from the main screen, it will automatically create a new message window. You can also use a series of your favorite contacts on the home screen so they are easily accessible.

There are many decent and installed applications. For example, Nokia Maps offers turn navigation, Vlingo provides voice to text translation, and Theresa Facebook application helps you cope with their social environment, but it is not so easy to use, that it should be.

Nokia E5 - networking and the verdict
As with other devices created the series E, E5 may be completely different home screens for business and pleasure. These can quickly switch between using the icon switching, which is a good idea.
Nokia E5
Is not that missing the phone when it comes to connectivity. It sports HSDPA for fast access to data in motion and also has Wi-Fi on board, when you connect to a wireless router in the office or at home here. Theres also a GPS and Bluetooth software works well with Nokia Maps. However, this means the small screen, Web browser, a bit slow and the lack of a touch screen, navigation Nokia E5 a very frustrating experience, especially for Android smartphones available at similar prices compared provides.

As we have come to expect from Nokia, but the quality is very good and the phone seems to be very good to hold a signal even in some problem areas. Battery life was excellent and we were able to get about three days between charges.
Nokia E5 Camera
However, a camera E5S a bit of a disappointment. E5 It has a 5-megapixel resolution and autofocus and an LED flash so special, but the results are disappointing.
Auto focus is not so hot that the camera produces quite often blurred and the colors are very subdued look dark and sad picture ready. The flash is not in, but again the detail and sharpness is not his strength.

Verdict The Nokia E5 is a robust messaging phone that offers many features and a good keyboard and good battery life. However, crowding your screen is a bit of a disappointment and a Series 60 operating system seems quite dated now compared to the competition. Since there are many great smartphones that you can get for around 180 on pay as you go now do not think that the Nokia E5 offers more than enough excitement to make it tempting.

Since there are many great smartphones that you can get for around 180 on pay as you go now do not think that the Nokia E5 offers more than enough excitement to make it tempting.

Our full review of the Nokia E5
The E5 seems that the media industry through the design style Blackberry, where he was a landscape screen with a full QWERTY keyboard below. Like many other Nokia phones messenger recent years, however, it is also fun, you are working to foil between two screens at home and play.

E-Series phones are let for their quality and impressive building Nokia E5 fortunately not the face-down known. Most of the chassis is made of hard black plastic, but the battery cover and buttons mounted on the center console front are carved from aluminum. The chassis is very rigid and not flexible at all, seem to bend a little even if force is applied, so that you feel confident that it will cope with the hardships of life in motion. The Nokia E5 is much cheaper and still seems quite elegant.

Nokia has grouped the connectors on the top of the phone. Here you will find the traditional mini Nokia charging port and a micro USB port. Micro-USB connector can be used to recharge your phone and synchronize with a PC, but the strain is slower than USB, it is to use Nokia's own charger.
Slap bang in the middle of these two ports, you'll find the headphone output, which is fortunately a standard 3.5mm jack, so you can swap the headphones made from your account are available.

For storage, the phone has 512MB of ROM on board, but Nokia also comes with a 2GB microSD card, this is a niche that is troublesome enough under the battery cover, you can not replace them off the memory card without the phone.

Nokia C5 Reviews, Images and Video

C5 Nokia candybar design provides a simple and broad range of functions without being too expensive. No jaw-dropping, but should not disappoint anyone.
Nokia C5
Nokia to make is simply good candy bar phones and the Nokia C5 is a good example. The phone is a combination of plastic and aluminum is, it feels quite easy in his hands. Our test unit was in the white version with a gold band on the sides of the device. The Nokia C5 is in a warm shade of gray.

The production quality is generally solid, although somewhat intimidated by the battery cover matt silver, which was a bit loose on the ground. The implementation of the micro SD card slot and volume keys is also questionable. The micro SD card, once established, is too low in the slot so that a painful experience trying to remove the card with your fingernail. The volume buttons are thin, rigid, and sank into the housing. We had to print before the controls registered. Try to do now when the phone is near your ear.

Fortunately, the keyboard is a pleasure to use and 2.2-inch QVGA screen is suitable for a device this size. The TFT screen is 16.7 million colors, but the readability of the screen under the sun is an average. We had to squint a bit to frame your photos with the camera. Inside, the picture looks sharp and vivid. Elsewhere on the C5, there is a 3.5 mm audio jack, micro USB port connection and charge up to 2 mm, while a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash is back.
Nokia C5
The Nokia C5 is running on the Symbian S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 OS, virtually all other Nokia smartphones without touchscreen. Smart dialing commands, conference calling (up to three participants), the audio and video cards. The latter is the second camera, VGA front-employed. The latter has a zoom range from 20 cm to infinity and is also capable of recording video at 144x176 pixels at 15 frames per second.

The main screen is a link carousel your favorite contacts in the address book. Up to four people to appear in a certain time, even though the pages, the two contacts on the edge has been cut because of the limitation of the screen (see our display of figure). However, it is likely to be able to determine who these friends are, by their pictures. Clicking on any of these contacts to an aggregator, which recent history shows that certain person. Below this switch is designed for applications carousel appointments, e-mail and contacts designed Ovi States. Down in the bottom of the screen with six shortcuts that are configured to change the left / right. If you use a recent Nokia smartphones, none of them should be new to you.

Most applications that the average user should be pre-installed. It Quickoffice to view the document (although you need for the paid version to register, create new documents), Adobe PDF reader, dictionary, Zip manager, notepad, real player, voice recorder and Ovi Maps Navigation. Operating in real time and the navigation unit is free in the nokia C5. Maps on Ovi, you will also find a guide Lonely Planet and events, and a request to update the time. The C5 comes with 128 MB onboard memory, with about 50 MB.

In addition to contacts, maps, Ovi, the nokia C5 also supports application downloading via Ovi on the product and Files on Ovi. One thing that I have reviewed the lack of applications and user complained to the terrible Ovi. What chance is there is a robust set of applications from a third party for S60. The only problem is that it may find to be able to Ovi, and instead the Internet for the search.

Files on Ovi allows you to view, download and upload files (what did you expect?) Placed on your computer by phone, what is a life saver if you need access to a document on your PC apart. You must install the program files on the PC connection and use the second must be online to this service. 2GB microSD card that came with the Nokia C5, the installation file for the program Ovi Suite, you need not be downloaded separately.

Because of his accent, that I recommend you do not get too close to his goal only if they really in a position to estimate the distance of 25 cm is from the camera to focus. Closely, and you end up with an image blurred.

The Nokia C5 has a basic camera that allows you to snapshots and movies 2048x1536 VGA at 15 frames per second. The montage of images in the widescreen format was not conducted very well in our tests, you can see the seams of each image clearly. Our videos also saw the low frame rate for video capture worried. The LED flash has a range of about 1.5 million.
Nokia C5
Call quality was good and found no problems during our review period of one week. The speakers are not too clear, but if you in a very noisy environment that may still have the other line for a 3G video call can be heard. The video image is not broken during the conversation as they moved.

The Nokia  C5 is driven by an ARM11 processor with 600 MHz with 128 MB RAM. In general, the headset quickly and the delay time when a fraction of a second meter barely registered in our discomfort. The only exception is if they decided to gallery. Images and videos of the navigation screen automatically rotates to landscape mode, which had a delay of two seconds.

This is a smartphone that does basic tasks more efficiently. 1050mAh battery has a capacity of 12 hours of talk time and about 26 days of standby. Thanks to our Microsoft Exchange mail in the general direction, the occasional surfing the Internet, download applications and updates to Twitter and Facebook, the battery lasts 2.5 days comfortable.
Nokia C5
The Nokia C5 not excite, but it will not disappoint. If you are looking for a basic phone with features such as text, the C5 is worth considering. It has appointed a mid-range device, compact and affordable that offers most of the time.

HTC Thunderbolt Review: The first smartphone from Verizon Real speed 4G

Verizon Thunderbolt Review : Real speed 4G comes in the smartphone, HTC lightning, Armando Rodriguez,,

HTC Ray, on 17 March was published, the first phone in the U.S. is available that can access the network speed 4G LTE Verizon Blitz will be connected. This fact alone makes the Lightning ($ 250 with a new contract for two years) a significant part of the equipment, particularly for users who usually run applications with high bandwidth applications such as video, online gaming and the definition of HD video streaming. Network speed aside, I found the phone even greater for HTC impressive, especially the family of smartphones, but with some shortcomings.

Beautiful design
Thunderbolt HTC 4G LTE smartphoneThe feels really well built and sturdy in the hand. But for someone who comes from a small phone, Rayo 5.78 ounces, with frame of 4.8 by 2.6 by 0.52 cm, can feel like a monster in comparison.
HTC Thunderbolt-1
However, the phone is a good use of their size. Thunder WVGA screen, 4.3 inch display provides ample room to maneuver your fingers while typing and browsing websites on the go. My only complaint is that the screen is difficult to see in direct sunlight.

The phone design is very simple, it offers a power button and a headphone jack on top, a volume control on the right hand, and the device, the output level, menu, back and search buttons in the face. On the back is an 8-megapixel camera (with dual LED flash) and a crowbar, as we have seen in the HTC EVO 4G. Also find a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for video conferencing equipment (see below).

Rayo fast broadband speeds
The main draw is its broadband Thunderbolts, who were in my tests just unbelievable. With the FCC wireless broadband test Ookla, I saw download speeds compatible 8 megabits per second and 12 Mbps. With a bar and a room that supports Verizon's LTE 4G network, I managed to download your mobile site for about 4 seconds PCWorld. Sites image-heavy loaded in less than 10 seconds.
HTC Thunderbolt-2
Ray 4G can share their connection with seven devices through its role in Wireless Access Point (even if the service can be fee depending on your plan). To test the connection limits 4G: I have an access point and an iPod Touch and other smartphones with him. I was able to transmit live TV for the iPod Touch and download applications and view YouTube videos in high quality on the phone while surfing the Web and download applications in the package. All these tasks easily and quickly ran Verizon's LTE service, and I feel there might be a little more devices to the hotspots with little loss of power to be.

Call quality on the Lightning was not clear, but it was close. People who called said he could hear the wind noise on my end, but without interference from others.

HTC Sense Facelift
The Lightning comes with a combination of new and improved user interface that spans HTC's own software, operating system, Android. Although most of the interface improvements purely cosmetic purposes seem, HTC has introduced some cool new features.

For example, by showing the message below at the top of the screen is a list of applications already open. This useful feature may have been inspired by a similar function in apples IOS.

In relation to the Quick-start option allows you to start phone almost immediately, but to disable certain applications with Android Market need.

The  +  symbol on the right side of the pier (at the bottom of the screen) has been replaced by a brush and palette. If you touch that brings the adjustment menu, where you can change the background image, add items on the screen and change the sound settings. You can also use the skin of the user with a sense of the five options.

Android Add-Ons
Unfortunately, the flash is to have loaded with unwanted software. The application has seen the blockbuster in the X-Droid is Verizon with a demo-Ray Golf 2 and promotional videos Bitbop, Rhapsody and Rock Band for Android loaded. The usual range of applications, Verizon (Navigator, Slacker, V CAST V Cast media and the App Store) is also an entrance. And you know what? You can not delete these applications. This is not an injury, but no further request that clog your mailbox application, it is difficult to quickly find the desired application.

The cameras are a mix
HTC phototherapy has  Thunderbolt test test photo HTC two cameras, a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front and an 8 megapixel in the back. The photos that I worked with the 8-megapixel camera (click on the thumbnails on the left to see the pictures in full size.) Photos were surprisingly strong. Even if the zoom, the resolution was quite good. Colors seemed determined and faithful to the theme of my photos. Pictures were taken at very low light in a clear and simple, thanks in part to the dual LED flash. HTC EVO 4G also features an 8-megapixel camera on the back, but the camera is far superior Thunderbolts.
HTC Thunderbolt-3
Thunderbolts before, in front of the camera of 1.3 megapixels is a different story, I have pictures with it a bit dark and dreary. The front camera for video chat services, but could not find this kind of application that runs on your mobile phone. Skype for Android does not yet support video chat, and Fring does not recognize the camera at all. Qik could be another option, but does not offer video telephony application to the beam. Despite its good to use more Android phones before the cameras without additional software, they are not much to see.

The video I shot with the phone very much, but certainly not as clear as the images captured. If I shot a clip, the video seems a bit vague, and only if I set the camera to an object that had to improve the sharpness of the video. A more serious problem relates to the audio-video recordings of a phone so low you have to listen to the volume of the reading, and even then only you can hear loud noises.

Beautiful views with other teams
A DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certification, lightning can wirelessly share photos, music and videos between devices, DLNA home network. For example, you can stream video on your TV with DLNA certification for breeding. The music player can also check out the media server you have to listen to on your network.
Beautiful  teams  HTC Thunderbolt -4
If you listen to your favorite music, you get (like most people), knowing very happy that ships Thunderbolt lead with a microSD card to 32 GB on board, thousands of songs or movies with them.

HTC Ray looks, feels and acts like a solid piece of hardware. Although the specifications arent all that we see not already in the X or the Droid Droid 2, is the ability to speed burst unprecedented Verizon's LTE network use a special phone. Users want to run, the high-bandwidth applications on the road - as in the transmission of HD video or play games online - are quickly found a phone on the market.
