Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970just one question,have u had used any Windows phone before this or no? why I'm asking this bcos windows phone are as they are, the reality is - windows is a platform (with any kind of feature adding potential by softwares) but with less user friendly interface and little buggy .one who buys it has to work a little on his own which can be done by third party softwares. they are not like iphone,nokia where it should be - get go perfect from the very go but with very limited third party support.what can majorly go wrong WINMO,GPS KEYPAD,FM,WIFI,edge,a2dp,inbulit office, GPS SOFTWARE BUNDLE, car holder, charger in INR 10-11k. and Guys where is place to get in delhi for cheapest,one shop in gaffar mcd mkt qouted 10.5 15 days back.is thre a better deal in delhi ?
All I can say is this phone is cool & sexy & fis perfect in my hand.. Excellent screen resolution & phone is designed completly thinking about user perspective.
August Bhai, now u r boring us. If you dont like this phone no probs and we also dont like your all these posting. why u r again & again posting your views. Leave this page and go to a showroom and purchase whichever phone u like there.
Bye & dont come again.
This phone is amazing.
If you have a problem with the user interface, it's because you don't know WinMo. The only thing good about Windows Mobile is the wide variety of applications (for free).
With the right application(s), you can transform your phone's user interface to something incredible.
I'm convinced that my P527's user interface has the iPhone beat thanks to all these amazing free applications.
Hitesh, 07 Feb 2009it ain't look that bad going by the total feedback, i have been on windows phone since o2 xda... moreHitesh,
All i can say is that its my opinion that you avoid this phone. I feel for a touch screen, the screen size should be large enough to use fingers. In this case it becomes rather difficult . Then you have to use the stylus which occupies your other hand.It takes ages to charge but drains out quite quickly. It hangs very frequently.GPS seldom function cos it will keep asking you to close applications for extra memory to run GPS. But the package seems to be nice will all the accesories like car charger , windscreen stand etc.
I bought Nokia E71 which is absolute breeze.It is still hard to fathom how this ASUS P527 has such high ratings.
August, 07 Feb 2009Sanjay , u must be working for Asus for cryin out loud!it ain't look that bad going by the total feedback, i have been on windows phone since o2 xda mini days,every windows device has it's niggles.one who is into third party softwares and tweaks for eg. from xda developers. most of the things get sorted.and all the negative reports come from those who are switching from simple ' nokia devices' for the first time.I think it is VFM .where would you get gps,t9 keypad +touchscreen, fm,windows,for around 10-11k ($200-225).What is the main problem . care to share ! because I'm almost set to buy it .it is little bigger (other choice asus p320) but got more battery ,fm and more accessories with it than p320
This phone is the best in class, with Keypad and touchscreen both, it is the most user friendly phone I have ever used and also cost effective. Good thing is they are bundling Satguide map and it works fine with other features like Location Courier & Travel Log, BT Presenter or even BCR. The Total Value For Money PDA Phone from Asus.
Get rid of this crap asap. Not at all user friendly.
I used it for a month. Most horryfying month of my cellphone usage.
When I send excel file or Powerpoint presentation (office 2003 version)from my PC to my P527 thro'email,both excel as well as PPT files are not not opening in my handset.I get error message-file format is not recognised.Can any body help?

I have used this phone with lot of bitter experience.
I Sold off this phone and bo... moreDear Kamal,
I have E71, Xperia And now i have purchased This P527. I found this phone better than E71 and given e71 to brother. this is a good business phone and okay for music.
Has anyone checked Nokia E51. I am contemplating between P527 & E51. Whats your experience? My purpose: Lots of contact nos., to-do's, reminders, messeging. How is msg.ing in P527? I find Nokia T9 option very easy & fast for me. Another very important feature is serach in-device. Any word (whether in to-do, contact, word, excel) search for that word an it will give results. E51 has In-device search. Whats the hands-on experience with lot of you guys?
keerthi, 30 Jan 2009maybe its only me.., but i couldn understand a line of what u said....and it was a comment in favour of your arguement ,that Mr. kamal is comparing apple to oranges .First different price range p527 and e71 e63, then different operating systems and form factors.even when two windoows mobile are not clubbed together as in category of touchscreen or non qwerty keyboard in front and t9.nokia qwerty is way off to be put in same category He must have been a first time user of windows mobile didn't explore the potential fully in terms of features and softwares to ditch it, instead of suggesting nokia htc or something like that would have better as they are more closer to this phone.I hope u got it now
Kamal, 30 Jan 2009Dear All. I have used this phone with lot of bitter experience. I Sold off this phone and bo... moreand to further the point , maybe u are first time user of windows mobile that switched, because it is also difficult for people who are using windows mobile since along time to switch to other OS of phone. because of sheer number and types of softwares available be e63 71 are s60 non touch screen phones, the advice should be of touchscreen, gps windows mobile category .don't mix apple with oranges
I have used this phone with lot of bitter experience.
I Sold off this phone and bought E71.
I lost some money but I think I made the right choice. I'd advice people who are going for this phone should consider E71.
i dont understand how people compare phones of different price ranges.., e 63 is 14k and above while p 527 is < 12k... how can u even compare???? more price= more fetures ( atleast in most of the cases)..,be smart and look for VALUE FOR MONEY. and as for durability touchscreens are always delicate and one needs to be careful only...
