Bought this E51 non camera at below US$20 a week ago just to try out for fun. Reason I bought this phone was because it's Symbian OS, cool looking metal casing, and at such a low price who wouldn't want to try it out.
First thing I noticed was the rubber buttons at both sides and the power switch starting to peel off very badly, so bad that the whole button simply disappeared, but still usable. Most likely due to aging process.
Battery life fairly short, about 2 days max. Can't complaint much because it's quite normal for such an old phone.
Display is quite clear with adjustable brightness. On top of the left side above the screen there is a white Led light which I not quite sure what's that for. It only lite up when I switched on the phone.
Quite easy to open up the back casing for changing battery or sim card, unlike the Nokia phone today, so difficult to open.
I tried most of the functions, and they work fine except for the calendar, somehow it's jam. Even after resetting the phone, the calendar doesn't work. Also, it's not easy to find working symbian apps and games for this phone, even if I found some cool apps to download, most of the time it doesn't work, or expired certificate.
The key pad buttons seems to be a bit tiny for me, always end up pressing the wrong button, especially both top left and right menu buttons.
Speed of this phone is quite reasonably fast compared to my other new low end candy bar model eg. Nokia 206.
Because of the metal casing, the phone heats up pretty fast while charging. Best is put it somewhere cool while charging, eg. on the floor.
Can be quite annoying if you use an expired sim card, which I normally use for testing phone. It will prompt you every 10 seconds that the sim card registration failed.
Okay, I think that's about it. My final say about this phone is it's still quite an interesting phone to experiment with. Made by Nokia, and not Microsoft which gives me that classic user friendly feel. Buy it only if it's cheap.
