NokiaLuvrFromJakarta, 20 Sep 2009@loco, Romeo are u sure it is hardware problms or firmware? whice country ur E52 made fr... morei've the korean one.. the don't sell the finland made in my country anymore :S although i have my old 3250 made in germany and i have no problems with it
Removed my E52's faceplate and it's indeed coated plastic. Thin and flexy plastic for that matter. Kinda disappointed. At least I'm not having software problems. But still, I would have preferred it a little thicker just to have similar build quality to E51.
Original_Jamaican, 17 Sep 2009People who knows the real OJ knows that my grammer would NOT be that off. Poor grammer is NOT ... moreI have no hands-on experience but it seems to me that since the E55 doesn't have a dedicated key for every letter, you still need to use the predictive text feature but now with a non-traditional layout. And wouldn't the E52 buttons be larger since there are fewer, making them easier to press? The few comments I've seen comparing the two all favour the E52 -- which I am very excited to buy when my pay comes in.
are u sure it is hardware problms or firmware?
whice country ur E52 made from? finlands or koreans? sorry guys, now im really curious about this issue. which one is better or worse, cos i am in the situation where i can choose either korean made or finland made for my next E52 (my relative in europe now)
one guy below from UK, complaining bout his finlands E52.
loco, 19 Sep 2009This is my last nokia phone. E52 is crap. don't buy it. monday i'm sending it to service, hope... morethat's right the E52 is crap i got it one week ago and it's not switching on at all i think it's a factory error or something. i'm waiting now to see if nokia can fix it or replace it for me!
i'm using n3250 xpressmusic for 3 years now and never needed to fix anything in it
nokia is going down! they don't care about the quality anymore and they'll lose their loyal customers if they kept doing this! i'm not satisfied with nokia anymore
This is my last nokia phone. E52 is crap. don't buy it. monday i'm sending it to service, hope it will be replaced.
i had 5800 and is moore stable than this crap.
Easy the best phone ive had, both for private and business use.
Have a HTC Diamond 2 as complement for webbrowsing and writing mails, but for voicecalls/videocalls and texting, E52 rules.

Not because you DON'T see VERTU on Nokia's site means that VERTU isn't a Nokia. Nokia just reserves a special site for VERTU phones.
Look at LEXUS, Toyota makes LEXUS and you won't find LEXUS on Toyota's site. There's a special site reserved for LEXUS.
For the record people, I'm NOT saying I won't buy any chinese made products because China does make good original products. Example, I have a chinese made 8GB Transcend Class 6 Micro-SD card in my E51 and it works perfectly. It's also the fastest memory card I have come across. Previously I had another Class 6 memory card in my phone and it was noticeable slower than this Transcend.
My Transcend is so fast you forget a memory card is in the phone. The phone starts up extremely fast too and I have used up 1/2 the capacity of the card. It is said that when you have quite a bit of data on a memory card it slows the phone down...NOT my Transcend though. I suspect if I buck it to the brim using up all the capacity it will still be just as fast.
I also have other chinese made products and they are ok. My only problem is buying chinese made phones based on experiences.
I have posted this before, but I want to post again. For the benefit of others…
I have been a Nokia user for the past 10+ years, ever since M1 started some 10+ years ago. My very 1st hp was the "banana" phone, think it was Nokia 3810 or something like that. And ever since, I have had up to 20 or more models of Nokia hp already. 6510, 8250, 6280, 6288 (just to name a few) and many many more models I lost count and forgot the model number. So far, I have been very satisfied with your product.
But in recent one year or so, my purchases of Nokia phones have been disappointing.
1) 6210 Navigator: No good, the phone went for software upgrade once (at least)
2) E71: Some problem with the ear-piece parts. Replacement part not available (wait for one/two months; gotta wait. Complained and M1 (not Nokia) replaced one for me (Nokia no longer has 7days replacement policy).
3) E75: Software problem again, went software upgrade again.
4) E51 (Used): Ok, but unable to read memory card.
5) WORST OF ALL: E52, the phone just died on me. Unable to power on. Phone is still at Nokia Care Centre after one whole week!!!
The above models are bought in the time span of recent one year.
I was able to back up all my data in previous incidents (1-4), but in the most recent purchase of E52 (No power), it did not give me any symptoms of breakdown and I lost all my data!! Calendars entry, notes, messages etc…
Yes, this complaint is from just one customer, but I will definitely not recommend Nokia to my friends and relatives anymore. At the same time, I am sorry to say that Nokia has just lost a loyal faithful 10yo customer. And I will definitely not consider Nokia anymore in my next hp purchase. Perhaps, Sony E or HTC or even Samsung might be better choice.
From an utterly disappointing EX-Nokia faithful customer...
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2009hi TRF!
did you try the e52 GPS? good or poor signal? fast or slow?
thanks!!!hi, I didn't get a chance to test the GPS.
I'll try this week and give an update on it. but I think somebody posted something about it already though.
Hello everybody! I use to like Nokia and especially the nokia E series phones this is why I got E50, E51 and a week ago I went shopping for the E52. Its got a stunning battery life and it looks nice as well. However, the first batch of E52s that arrived at the stores were really bad concerning with the software. It kept crashing all the time, I could not even finish or start a phone call.It kept disconnecting from my nokia Bluetooth headset and it always kept restarting. I could not connect it via bluetooth to my laptop so as to retrieve the phone book and in general it made my life horrible!!! I got it back to the store, they agreed to give me a new one since that one was obviously a faulty one! Then when I got home and opened the new box the On/Off button was missing (from the top side of the phone) and the battery cover was badly scratched! I called the immediately and I went back to the store again. They confirmed that the phone was damaged from the beginning and they tried to find me a new E52 or I had to get another model. Since the batch of E52s was small there was no other phone in the store and since I did not want any other phone but the E52 the gave me a full refund for the price of the phone!
So, I wonder, what is going on with Nokia quality control? Why is this keep happening to these guys in the north? I have to admit that I am fed up with nokia and that I am not going to buy any other again. I wish that this happened only to me, but I read in other forums that they had the same problems with me! NOKIA, Please raise your quality and reliability standards, or you will lose in the market by others (htc, samsung and lg make stunning phones nowadays)
A disappointed ex-nokia user!
I like it too much & I want to buy one to my fiancée.
So please tell me how to buy one, or call me if you know how...

DO NOT GET THIS PHONE!
I had mine for about 2 weeks before I had to return it (UK, made in Finland).
Noise cancellation feature means when you are outside and there are cars going past etc, your own voice gets cut off and is very hard for people to here.
GPS at first was accurate, later VERY inaccurate, even with aGPS turned off.
The build quality is very poor - there is light bleeding everywhere, especially under the screen, and the buttons do not all feel the same, as if they are about to fall out!
The Nokia logo on the back feels like it is about to come off.
Very disappointed, as the phone is unbelievably light, thin, has EXCELLENT battery life, and very good and fast OS.
Shame the other things let it down big time..
back to topic
now, i want to know if any of u already got the gold E52 in ur hometown?
i asked one distributor here and they said NOT yet.
im really curious and hope anyone do kindly snap some pic of ur golden E52 to show it here for us. is it as good as it looks in some videos?
im afraid the golden variant are later come as "special" item with higher price... just like N73 white.
sorry again trf, which country do u come from? do u buy unlocked E52 or locked E52?
i just want to know distribution area of E52 korean made.
ask GSMARENA editor team where they get finlands E52.
vertu is not nokia, but owned by nokia.
vertu is UK based not finland.
u can check at nokia.com and they dont have vertu list on there.
they have diffrent segment and basically totally diffrent design concept, diffrent marketing strategy.
i dont see any vertu adopt nokias style at all, even compare with nokias 8*** class.
