What are you talking about the same? There very different:
N500 vs C5-03
capacitive touchscreen vs resistive touch screen
2gb phone memory vs 40mb phone memory
256mb RAM vs 128mb RAM
Symbian ANNA vs Symbian s60
1Ghz processor vs 600Mhz processor
500 is way better.
If i have helped at all a click on the white star below would be nice thanks.
A GPU helps you render 2D and 3D games smoothly in your phone. It is like graphics card on a computer... When you have a GPU, it enables better rendering of high end games in your phone... A Nokia 500 has a 2D GPU with HW accelerated Open VG1.1 support... So as chanchan says Nokia 500 is way better than a C5-03...
