# Points to be Noted...
1. Phone announced in Feb 2009 @ MWC.
2. Updated on Nokia website(India) as coming soon.
3. Out of the blue phone erased overnite without a trace.
....Nokia please keep your customers updated, else we are prompted to check other manufacturers coz its really irritating you show goodies and then you snatch it away....do something before your customer base slips further.
paltik, 10 Sep 2009id rather buy a canon or nikon cameras!yes, once again it is a phone camera.
yes we also have a Nikon D200 camera.
a phone camera is a good bonus for a phone.
remember, most people are not professional photographers.
If you want to capture a mona lisa shot, yes buy a good camera.
if you just want to take a picture, a phone camera will do the job quite nicely.

can you see the fuzzy pics taken by their 5800 sample shots? that's the same blurry effects we get with it.
But I'll try to take pics of each phone this week when I'm not busy and upload them somewhere.
Dumb question but i really don't know the answer: Where is the digital compass?

It's important for me because I'm going to buy E52 or 5800 and if you say E52 camera is better probably I will decide E52.

but I compared it with 5800 carl zeiss double led flash, e71 and e52 beat it hands down.
I think e52 needs a firmware update for its camera.
I remember a phone, forgot what, that it's pic quality became much much better with an update.
but the picture quality is good for a phone camera.
I tried it in low light as well as well lit rooms. I'll try it when I have time to take pics outdoors.

ya hs, it had been with the care for over 2 weeks. they were suppose to replace the set instead they reinstalled the firmware and gave it back telling me that they cant replace it unless they find a permanent damage. They said they did not find any problem with the set after the firmware reinstall. Well now it passed away. i wonder wht they ve got to say to me when they see me tomorrow.

camera is ok if u take pictures from a distance and in day light or in some place where's more than enuf light is around.. if taking photos of something smaller like a newspaper writing or a book page, it aint good due to fixed focus. u will not be able to read anything from the taken picture. taking photos in low light is also not very good. too much grain.
i ve read all fantasic opinion abt dis phone...bt cn any1 tell me abt da cam clarity of dis fone...as it dsnt hav carl ziess lens....dats y??
Pls lt me knw asap...plannin 2 buy it
i take back my words that i said earlier..my phone passed away maybe an hour ago..i found it turned off a few moments ago when i tried checking my mails. it aint turning on and even recharging when i put it into charge..i am really frustrated with this E52. Is this only me or some1 else has a similar problem? i never thought i would ve to face anything like this in my life ever..but i was wrong :(
i agree with trf, the D-pad of steel has really a good pressure feeling!
today i could find the settings for the accelerator and could also test it now.
the accelerometers speed is quite nice but if u shake a bit its reacting much faster !
video are automatically shown is wide screen mode whih everyone knows maybe but for me its new and i think its better because otherwise the video resolution isnt so compatible and u have then smaller format!
what im asking is why they integrated the video center? because in gallery u can show the videos too.
and i like most the gps with nokia maps. my tomtom is good too but the software of nokia maps looks more modern i find.
now its your turn my friend OJ=) me would interest your opinion too. i think there isnt nearly nothing which is unknown on this device except the firmware problem but nokia will certain find a solution in the next firmware upgrade

You have been very busy my friend. We are working harder than the GSMArena editorial staff are (smile).
16 hours of hard use and only 58% battery life used. That's mad, sick, crazy power there. Duracell and Energizer have met their match (smile).
As another reviewing site said "The main and best selling point of the E52 is the amazing battery life"
Yet there is even more to love about it feature-wise.
I really need to get my hands on a E52.
one of the things that I like with this phone is its D-pad. it's made of steel.
Since it's virtually the most used control of the phone, making this very durable would ensure that the phone won't age as quickly as say other phones that have silver-coated plastic D-pads.
All the keys are firmly placed,which is good. nothing feels like it's creaking or will fall off.
Though you MUST check the front frame around it. Some e52 front frames creak like it might fall off, mainly the right side of the phone when you're facing it.
The second one I got has a much sturdier frame.
The signal quality is very good for SMS, WLAN, 3.5, etc.
I have no complaints about it.
I've also noticed that it's only in the email app that icons are animated...
probably all icons will be animated in the next firmware update.

It's really really fast.
Had a go with e71 and 5800 today, it's battery really rocks.
using music, video, visiting the gallery a lot, installing apps, taking pictures, surfing the net, sending and receiving text, setting up emails(personal and business) and sending mail, etc.
I've also installed a lot of images for OVI maps.
GPS on, accelerometer turned on.
this is 16 hours people and I've only used 58% of it's battery life.
I've tried doing video and taking pictures with e71 and within 2 hours or so it was already halfway drained.
