About my E5-00's battery problem, here is an update. I got the phone checked by Nokia care. Turnsout the spindle charger, which took a good 5 hours to charge at the best of times, was faulty. No complaints. The charger has served me well for 3 years now. The Nokia guy said the new battery BL4D was good and that I needed a new quick charging USB charger, so the phone charged fully and quickly. I had a eureka moment and decided on using my Sony Ericsson USB charger for the Nokia E5. It worked great. The Nokia battery now charges fully and quickly. Only problem: the battery runs down in about 3 hours of internet browsing. This was not the case with the original battery. Any idea whats wrong? Should I get a new Nokia USB quick charger.

I can dial video call with the help of its back camera. Camera flash of this set is remarkable than other set. After all, it is one of the best set of nokia indeed.

Great phone, been using it a little over a year now.

I really like the qwerty keyboard, easy to type, and great for shortcuts (has a bluetooth on/off button, silence button, etc.)
My favorite bit is the music player. It's easily managable, and I can simply start typing a song name and it starts searching for it.

The only weakness is the mask - it can get ruffed up real quick, and changing it can be a pain in the arse (if you're doing it yourself).
The camera is a bit annoying - the automatic mode is always on when I turn the camera on, and for some reason it always wants to use the flash (which makes the photograph blurry, so it's useless for taking pictures, I only use it as a flashlight), so I have to turn the flash off every single time I open up the camera.

It's a great phone, don't see a reason to use a smartphone (I don't do social media that much, I do most of my browsing at home, but the phone is definitely capable of that as well), and I find the physical qwerty keyboard a lot more convenient than an on-screen smartphone keyboard.

Otherwise, I really like this phone.

Truely Nokia E5-00 Made in Korea is a great phone. I've been using it since 2011 til date with NO single issue. Have other phones but still maintains it. Right now am sending this comment using my Nokia E5-00. Am pleading to Microsoft to continue with Nokias great/wonderful gesture i.e. quality built, update to both latest & old phones @ the same time & everlasting battery life. Unlike what we experiance today e.g. where a phone battery cannot last for just two days. Till date my Nokia E5-00 battery that i bought the phone with last for 5 days of heavy usage. Had never have anything like a second battery. Also, Microsoft, PLEASE bring back the good old days of the GREAT Symbian OS. Kudos to Nokia.

> In reply to Chuck @ 2015-01-04 14:58 from U@Mg - click to readWas the spare battery sealed? if it was then the battery is defective.

If it was not sealed [means that the battery case is actually slip-in type and not sealed, then it may be that the battery was not in full charge when you bought it.

To keep your battery in top performance have it fully charge before safe keeping or setting aside.

In your case it is safe enough that you'll need to buy a new battery. In which case the one you'll buy would be absolutely full charge ready to use.

Hope this helped you.
