What a great phone!!!
I understand a lot of people are having problems with the font size.........if you are these people get you eyes checked or put your reading glasses on!
Yes the E50 doesn't have a great camera but lets not forget its a business phone, if you want a better camera get one of the N Series devices.
Only downside i have found so far is the battery life isn't brilliant and i find myself charging almost everyday, not like the 6310i it is ment to be replacing which had awesome battery life.
Also could have done with WI-FI
If you want a good bussiness phone i'd deffinately recomend it but if you want a media phone then get one of the N Series.
Iv'e now had both N73 & E50 and find the software soo much quicker and more reliable on the E50 .
Camera is so bad.It should be 2.0 megapxls.Then it will be better.Overall E50 is not bad.Disadvantage is camera.
I 've been reading all the comments from others. Well, I would like to mention here one thing clearly for those who are looking to buy this phone.
FONT SIZE IS PERFECT. THIS PHONE IS NOT FOR KIDS WHO WANTS BIGGER STYLISH FONTS.
OVERALL EXCELLENT PHONE.
People who are doing research about this phone must go ahead and buy this phone.
A "business" phone that works terrible with more than 500 contacts.
I am using a nokia E50 Metal-Black for 2 weeks. I had bought this phone after a research of more than a month about mobile phones its features, getting information from net...and the best phone that i can choose from all brands and models is "The Ultimate-Nokia E50-Black"...Let it be applications...features or look. It deserve 100 out of 100 for its quoted price...and even it is the slimmest smartphone in the market. And it is all for business.....but also good for multimedia...I use more for entertainment rather than as a business phone..its works perfect for me...and the only disapointment is my mobile gets warm while conversation....Important thing if you see its higher version models....its very high in price........and i dont feel nokia E50 is no way less than Its higher versions....rem...i have did 1 months RnD in all mobile phones...........and at last..........I choose "NOKIA-E50(BLACK)"
It is relay wonderfull phon with great LCD and battery time and Keyboard . and very easy to connect to the PC .
It is the best recomend in its price.
ziad , write to nokia about it , it takes 5 minutes to do , let them be flooded with complaints about the e50 , its not right on their part to sell a phone and then forget about the users , anyone here facing problems ,, write to nokia -- i did -- you can too ,,, cheers
I both this nokia a while ago and it's great there are thones of free themes on zedge.net try them they are great.
i bought the black e50 2 weeks ago and i am experiencing the same major problems that you guys have posted. i called nokia middle east and they told me that there is no solution.
Now; if i may make a small suggesstion. let's prepare an online petition and all users of e50 will add their comments and concerns and then we send it to nokia (mother compnay) and let's see if they would look into our problem!
What do you think?
Its a class phone...it also supporst some good applications and i can use it as a web cam for my PC. Its battery is amazing. with multiple applications it hangs sometimes. Joy stick is a pain but with smart menu shortcuts and voice commands its a smart cell phone.
this is one of the best of nokia,
font size ok.
i have this phone for 4 months ago and i have no problem with it...it's a super phone !!!!
Dear Sir / Madam , i have 2 days ago bought a nokia e50 , i must say its a great phone but has two major software/hardware issues
1 ) THE FONT ON THE PHONE IS TOOOOOOOOOOOO SMALL , ( everyone on phone sites like www.gsmarena.com) are also complaining about this problem , why cant nokia do something about this problem , i find it near to impossible to write a text message . and view phone numers from the address book etc .. the day and date in the standby mode are so small that u would actually need a magnifying glass to see them .
2) there are also a lot of complains about the phone automatically going to the speaker phone while in a call and then the only way to rectify the problem is to take out the battery , once again nokia needs to look into this problem .
lastly i would like to say that there are a lot of people who are faithful to the nokia brand ( i am one of them ) nokia should not sell a product which is faulty and then forget its loyal consumers and expect them to face such problems ,
these problems are existent for over the last 6 months but the firmware is still the same as it was in October ,
kindly look into the above mentioned problem as if nokia takes this kind of a relaxed non- caring attitude towards their loyal consumers , they will eventually loose their consumers ( which im sure your sales charts , must already be showing )
looking forward to a early solution and an upgraded firmware for the e50 from your side ,
guys i just posted a note to nokia it took me a total of 10 minutes , 2 minutes to go through the formalaties and reach the actual page where i could write , and about 7-8 minutes to write a letter , i am making it easier for people here who would like to send in a post to nokia about the e-50 but dont have the time to write -- just copy and paste from here -- if you want , u r obviously more than welcome to modify the note if u like , but i suggest lets just stick to two main things
1 - font size
2- the phone freezing in genral mode /and going automatically to hansfree mode ,
my request , once again request would be lets not loose focus and start writing about a zillion things the e-50 dosent have ,
concentrate on the two main problems i have read here
i have written about the phone freezing problem ( even though i havent experienced it yet ) and the small font size .
i have read this entire tread twice over from the begining and these r the two main issues ,
so lets get together and let nokia know that we r facing these problems , and hope theydo something about it .
i agree - lets post directly to nokia ,to increase their font size , this is something that can be fixed by software modificatin ( new firmware) we can post in our own respective countries , let the people sleeping at nokia wake up and do something about their consumers who are loyal to them , instead of ignoring us , POST GUYS POST , WRITE TO NOKIA . lets all get together and try to make a differance ,
all the best , and remember if we post it will happen .
How about this for a suggestion - lets post here if we can actually communicate in the English language, if we cannot then let's post on our native tongue site Hmmmmmm. Thanks
we ALL here should write to nokia about the lousy small font they have on the e50 , and please dont tell me to get my eyes checked , i am a pilot and have got a 20/20 vision ( just checked 15 days ago ) i can read the font but to type a sms in the sun or at a particular angle when the sun / light is falling on the screen IS IMPOSSIBLE , really guys lets all send the clowns at nokia individual messages saying - INCREASE THE FONT SIZE N THE E50 . im sure they know that there is a problem but havent done anything about it , just got my phone and it had the software installed on it in oct 06 , did a software update and thats the same version still available , would have got a S.E. but the nokias menu is un - beatible . cheers to all and i do hope u all will take out 5 mts and flood them with a request for a new version of a software , all the best to u all and cheers
