For a touchscreen handset that has entertainment in mind, you can't go wrong with the Nokia C5-03. More affordable than its other Symbian siblings, the C5-03 still boasts a 3.2 inch screen with sharp resolution.
This makes using the interface a breeze, and allows you to enjoy browsing through YouTube, Flickr and Amazon with ease. The phone's resistive technology isn't quite up to scratch with that of capacitive screens, but instant messaging and the VGA video recorder atone for this shortcoming.
The C5-03 is an affordable touchscreen handset from Nokia which runs on Symbian and boasts and excellent choice of messaging and entertainment features.
