I am using E90 for past couple of months, here in Singapore. I actually traded off my N95, because it had some serious problems on bluetooth connectivity - specially while listening to songs. However E90 is good. I have tried almost every software and it works flawlessly well. Mechanical construction of hinge is also excellent, no problems with that. However, i have couple of observations - one is that when you go to contacts, and type a letter - say "C", then in most other phones all contacts STARTING with "C" appear - in the case of E90, all contacts having "C" somewhere in the entire spelling appear !!! On typing further letters (after the first letter), the search gets refined. Is this correct / normal for E90? Any software upgrade required ? I did not get satisfactory answer from Nokia service guys here.
Secondly the music manager is N95 was much better. It is quite a terrible job in E90 to sort music files (specially if you have many files, like I have more than 400)into corresponding play lists. Is there a simpler way to manage these files?
Speaking about picture and VDO quality, results are very good, certainly considering this is a business phone and not meant for fun.
Another question - actually one can call this part of WISH LIST - Could (or CAN) Nokia make the internal screen as TOUCH SCREEN as well ?
In any case, an excellent product from Nokia !!!
Hey guys, here goes a short comparison between E90 and N95, since I use both simultaneously.
N95 Main Strengths as compared to E90: Great Camera, 3.5mm audio jack and TV Out.
N95 Weakness: Crap Battery Life, Low Ram limits multitasking seriously, cheap plasticky finish (it's ridicuolous to pay the price Nokia charges us, when they use so much plastic on the phone)
E90 Strengths: 80MB FREE RAM - multitask as much as you want, GREAT BATTERY LIFE (this is the most important feature for me), great build quality. Great Keyboard and inner screen make for a reasonable browsing experience. The 3,2 Megapixel camera is sufficient for me.
E 90 CONS: it's Big and Heavy, has 2.5 mm audio and NO TV OUT. The camera button is horrible and drives you up the wall
Which one do I use as my main phone - hands down E90, especially because of battery life. Hope this was useful.
i waited for e90 for so long and when e90 arrived here in the philippines i bought it right away i got it for 40,000 pesos... for 1 week i tried it and i am very disappointed...my n95 is much better than the e90...so i sold it to my friend...and now im much very satisfied with my n95 and i think this is the greatest nokia phone i've ever had...

Mine also the same problem... I think is the quality of the casing.. I was very upset that the back cover was loose and got some noise when press on it... Nokia please look into it.. and the noise while making calls.. Please provide latest firmware that can fix the problem.
Why there are scammers anywhere, shamefull!? They want you to buy phone through mail and settle it through paypal - this is a SCAM. Better, ask for the package first (COD) - cash on delivery before paying anything else.
e90 is too good set ,but wishing fax in it :(
business phone without fax.
this phone is absolutely the best so far. no lag time... very fast in all aspects... and almost complete... but i just found out that it cant send nor receive fax. grrrr.
hey guys it has got sum strange prob with its speaker .. otherwise the ph is too good !
does anybody have an idea about GPS maps on thisphone.
can i download it from any site ??
I bought this phone it is definitly amazing. however the hinge plate was loose so i returned for exchange. also great as this phone is i have been using windows mobile phones and I am having trouble locating good software for the S60 3rd edition. I am a med student and windows has great application where i am lost for software for this phone. also cases and acessories are limited.
Any tips on where i can find a site with useful software?
If your thinking of purchasing look at the limitation of this platform. however this is the most stable I have seen.
To ustafa, yes you have a lot of MSN applications, one was also made by microsoft Live Messenger so you have messege history and all that stuff. That the main reason for me to buy it. I can't live withous MSN, emails and forums. And with E90 i will be able to do all that without my computer :)
Just got this phone after months of waiting. Not overly impressed tho. Sound during normal calls is not particularly good and there's movement on the top hinge when closing sometimes so it doesn't line up perfectly every time. Not something you would expect from such an expensive phone. It's not as big as I thought it would be which is positive, but it weighs a tone! Not for me i'm afraid. Think i'll be taking this back tomorrow and trying one of the new blackberry phones instead.
I currently have an iMATE JasJam (biggest disappointment), currently thinking about the SE P1 and the E90. if you can offer any help, i would appreciate it. Can I run Skype or MSN on the E90?
just got the e90.
this is a great phone. exceptional performance of camera, video, voice memo, etc.
i just have one problem, when i use the file manager, a question mark appears as the icon for powerpoint and excel files on my mini sdcard.
is it just me? do i have do download or install some software to fix this?
i guess N95 has same feature with E90, with better camera resolution n better mp3 player..
