What is it: Smartphone with Qwerty keyboard

Typical price (SIM free): £173

Good

  • Excellent Qwerty keyboard
  • Solid design
  • Good battery life
  • Excellent connectivity options

Bad

  • Poor screen
  • Symbian feels outdated
  • Camera could be better

The judgement: Your fingers will positively adore the Nokia E5's lush Qwerty keyboard, and its rugged construction and eye-catching design only endear the phone further. These positives are balanced out by a poor screen that's hard to view in sunlight and a below-average camera.
