Oh, yeah, let me tell about the lows:
- the silver edition gets a lot of fingerprints
- I can not believe Nokia did not put the stopwatch in it, or I'm just stupid enough to find it
- that's it.
By far the best phone I ever had, price is the best part of this... computer.
I like it's multimedial and connectivity options.
Battery can last up to 6 days with turning off at night and the rest is activity as always (SMS, calls, PC suite editing, camera, bluetooth and wlan connecting).
I give it 9/10.
a special thanks from my part goes to winura and walid. your help was much appreciated
I just have lost my 6120 classic. It was really a good phone. When I bought 6120, E51 was not available in the market. Now I am really thinking to buy E51. I know the difference of video cam, flash, vifi n memory between these phones, but just wanna know whether E51 is as fast as 6120? Moreover, 6120 has very nice speaker in it but don't know the sound quality of E51 is as good as 6120 C. Pls. help to I can make final decision of bying E51. thnx
I got the Nokia E51 and it's Honestly Best phone....Ever by Nokia.. battery life stays 4 2 days ....rest all the features are really good...& pricing for the phone is the most Exceptionally best Part of it....
For those who feel that battery life is short you can try this... press and hold the "Home" key, see what is coming out of your top left screen, you should have just one programme on standby mode which is the phone.... if you have more please try to turn it off, those are the programmes suppose to be off when you are not using it.
I hope this will help, if not....
Clean the dust and buy a protective cover to cover it.
I believe we do not have to pause here for so long, let's enjoy all the good things the phone has.
I am one of the happy user for sure.
could you kindly point out who said its a lie that the dust don't go inside the screen? if such a thing was mentioned my me in 1 of my post i'm sorry and also i should point out i was talking about the phone in general. there may be a few phones which were defected from the factory. may be yours is 1 of them. too bad. i personally use a E51 and so does 7 other people whom i know who use E51 phones and they are all fine.
To guy who wrote that long post:
How can u tell me there is no dust on the screen?it´s my phone,and believe me i´m tellin the truth..
i bought this phone among firsts..and i´m not happy with it..
i´m heavy user..voice and mesaging only..no wlan,voip...yet,battery is lame..impossible to reach two days..
but wtf..go ahead,buy this phone..other people said that e51 is amazing,great,wonderphone..bla bla..
Just a comparison of E51 with E6121, I personally feel that only its WiFi & larger internal memories may stand a position, but not others, it seems like not much out of a handset. Of course my view is base on general & not hands-on tested........
"same as the new "E51 free camera" NO changes at all!!! this is a piece of worthless creation made by NOKIA and NOKIA sucks!!!"
as for the DIMWIT who has posted this, be careful when you wag your tongue son. there are a lot of happy E51 users who will be glad to prove how WRONG you are!!!!
1st of all i should point out that the N82 is not a business phone. its more focused on the multimedia side. to be honest with you i don't have a N82 but i know a couple of people who has and so with their permission i did some comparison of the two phones.
the camera of the N82 is excellent and its obvious because it has a 5mpxl cam.
the sounds are not that loud in the N82 but its not bad either. have to say that the sounds are much better than the 6110 navigator which i spoke about earlier.
in general both phones has almost the same software except the N82 has a few clever bits and pieces. but you cant say that E51 is no match for the N82 because the E51 is mainly focused on business. no businessman would want a cam with 5mpxl, no businessman would want such a big heavy phone with a very uncomfortable keypad...
and more importantly here in Sri Lanka the N95 and the N82 are almost exactly the same price. and i cant think why a person should buy a N82 over the N95, because the N95 has everything that the N82 has!!!! AND the N95 is much better looking. wouldn't you agree???
1- If you want to try (IM + Skype) beaware to get the right version for your Mobile.
IM+ for Skype for Symbian S60v3
2- Goto: http://www.businesssoftware.nokia.com
In the Search box at the upper left type:"Skype"
you will get the page of (IM + Skype)
Choose the Third one: IM+ for Skype for Symbian S60v3
It is very important that you choose the suitable version for you.
To All Users:
1- Not Any Update will work for your Phone. Be carfull when you use any update to check is it suitable for your phone or. To do that go to Nokia Web Site and check the latest update for your Phone. There will be risk of loosing your Phone if you install the wrong update.
I Agree with Winura to keep our talk in this site in order to help other users to get benefit from it.
The E51 Search for Lan in 2 Cases. The First one if you do it Manually. The Second one if you install a program that use WLAN and you didn't prevent this program to automaticlly connect to Internet. Programs such as (Gizmo,Fring, IM)
Also you can check if Desabled the WLAN Search by:
Press Menu>Tools>Settings>Connection>Wireless LAN>Show WLAN availability>Never
1- You can not connect to internet via your WLAN because your WLAN is Secured. Check the Security on your Router.
2- I managed to Make the Security without any Encryptation by leting my 3Com WLAN Router to connect only to the Devices that I Give it their Mac Address and Prevent any other Devices.
3- Try to Desable the Security from your WLAN Router and try again. If it phone can connect to the Internet so it is a Firewall and Security Issue.
1- The Phone get warm (NOT HOT) because it use the battery alot. You have to Options. Option one is to get a phone that can not get red of the Heat but it will Hang with you when you use it. Or to get the E51 with the Staneless Still Back that get Red from the Heat (Like the Radiator in the Car) but do not hang with you. It is your Choice.
2- For Me the Hard Pressing Key are not a problem. I can live with it. But it prevent the Dust or Fluides from Entering the Set.
3- Yes Camera is Not Good. But if you would like a very good Camera do not buy a Business Mobile. You can Buy a Digital Camera or a Leisure Mobile.
4- There is no Dust ander the Screen. It is the Plastic Sheild which is easly scrached. Do not put your Mobile with your keys in the Same Poket. It will scrach it. (A very Minor Week Point).
5- I don't have any bug in my software (Till Now). I only got hanged when I tried to install a BETA VERSION OF THE SOFTWARE.
6- It is your Own Choice of what you buy. First define what do you need from your phone (Make a check List with your Prioryties) and read other people comment on the phone then you will be able to decide which phone to buy.
1- If you live in the UAE so you have to know that Skype is Banned in the Uninted Arab Emirates. You can not use it there.
2- Try to reinstall the PC Suite. But before doing that Desable your Firewall because it cause bad Installation then try the PC Suite. After that Enable your Fire Wall again.
3- There is another Program (IM + Skype) that use Skypeout but I didn't try it because you have to purchase it for 16 Euro. you can find the Program in:
Bye For Now.
Walid thank you for the info.
I have tried Skype calling computer it works. But the Skypeout (calling a land line) the call always terminates, Why? I have used my skype account and know for a fact i have credits. What would the problem be? Also I have installed the PC suite on my computer, but the program will not open, it shows me an error message. What are these update files 100.344??? not familiar with these files.
A comment to the person who Nokia sucks...your wrong. For the last 20 years I have always bought Motorola, last year I bought my first Nokia phone in Dubai, from now on I will only purchase Nokia.
