Using since a week

Die hard Nokia fan for the sturdiness and sync software with my desktop which no other phone has even till now written

Bought on Ebay f10300 rupees Indian

Primary reason for buying
Am a biker and hence a physical keypad for dialing is a must
Hd tried many touch screen but nothing works when u r in a bike
Drop my phones many times n hence cant risk a touch screen
Im a realtor and now even small time agents hv converted to bb and send all propisals and requirements on bbm so i was left out for nt having bbm
No whatspp is nit an alternstuve as they arent using it and it drained ny nokua e72battery in an hour
Trust me i dint buy this for mails - am using mails onky since vodafone has given me three months free mail service fir all new curve furst time bb users
I own a samsung galaxy tab 10.1 on which im typing this and am very happy withnthat



First take

Light weight and certainly not the sturdiness like Nok e72

Screen display supringly good enough (ignore the pixels n blah blah stuff)

Battery excelent

Operating system The universal search is just superb Nokia u r gone (symbian os)

Bbm cool app

Email the best i.e what blackberry is right

Multi tasking Much much better than Nokia my e72 used to freeze suddenly no amount of uodating or reinstaling the software worked w
Frankly fed up with it

Camera basic but equivalent to nokua so called 5mp crap

Apps a bore nit that Symbian is better but atleast Themes should be there

Cons

The charging cable length is a joke buy a decent length usb cord

The day i opened the package wifey pointed out that psint on aA keys already gone
I went to a bb store to understand how to avtivate bb pin hecexplained and whilevtyping asked me if i hd droped tge ph i said no he pointed out that left side of thecscreen is a red line v thin it means screen is defective and within three months thecscreen would go blank
Told me to give it back to the seller asap

Have contacted ebay have been an onlune shopers for over twelvecyears and never faced an issue lets see how ebay resolves the mater vua thier 30day customer gaurentee program (hope to guve feedback on that experience too)

Sync software dont even bother sync with ur desktop using bkyetoth it takes ages even with the cable ut takes a hell of time the time taken fir the software to launch is suffucuent to have a snack

Too bad it doesnt sync files likecexcel word etc u hv to copy paste them to the folder

The pictures fir some strange reason dont show on ur mobile even when it is on ur sd card u hv to again create a folder and impirt them again

Nokia pc suite is a breze and no andriod or bb or bada is even close (cant afford Apple n hence havent tried)

Conckusion Buy it if u want a physical keypad n fr ten grand wht do u get

Nokua morons u release e6 three years after e72 with the same processor which freezes (not hanging ) the phine n number of times woukd hv bouggt e6 if u hd a decent processor

been using this phone for a week and i can say that the battery performance is quite good (at least with the unit i have). the transition to another page or app is fluid, the radio feature is nice, earpiece quality is great and haven't had any problems yet, at least not yet. over-all experience:superb!

Its simply Brilliant !!! Starting from the look, the keypad,ease to use, rtyping speed etc. is just the way you want it. Keeping in mind its price range, its a must buy. Last but not the least its a Blackberry ;)
