I was thinking about the N82.. but now ive fallen in love with this little competent machine.. E51!! Has everything i possible could need, Wlan, Edge, HSDPA (turbo 3G), Radio, Good batterylife etc.. all wrapped up in a nice "metall-body"
The price are also neat, about 350$
Going to buy one next week!
Can someone POST PICTURES taken with the E51?? So we all can see camera-quality!!
Hey guys, here's my review on the Nokia E51.
The criteria for my decision was size, battery life, wifi, mp3. I wanted a GOOD phone that actually worked and didn't need to be charged everyday.
I can say now that this has satisfied my needs. While it's not marketed as a phone with bells and whistles, it has everything you need (wifi,camera 2mp,video, mp3). It has a very loud speaker as well.
Love this phone... by the way, it's also constructed very well. Stainless steel back plate and rim. What more could you ask for?
I would give this phone a 10 out of 10.
1. I can't find a case for it although i do have a screen protector on.
2. The Earphone jack is a mini, as apposed to the standard 3.5mm so you have to buy an adaptor to put any aftermarket buds in.
3.Mp3 software is medeocre. Instead of playing a song and cycling through your list of tracks using the forward key, you have to compile playlists...but small price to pay while everything else is stellar.
best fone i ever use in a nokia. The best thing is the speed. Worth the money! I strongly recommend it!
This handset is made in Finland. The device is excellent quality. With most Nokia handsets being made in Korea or China it is easy to see why this handset is a winner. I have been using it for 2 months and I must say its the bet Nokia I have used in 5 years.
oh.. and #3. adding a second cam in front would be goo too. If these all happens...By George! This'll be the best phone ever! :)
This phone's relly good. I hope nokia comes out with an e51 with:
1. a camera that is autofocus and has flash
2. a longer lasting battery for our wifi use
If al these happens, i wont think twice about getting that new one.
can anyone tell me...
does d black colour of the phone scratches off with use.....or its nice n stable...
wud be really thankful with answer....
I have been using the E51 for the past 2 weeks, and I am overall happy with the performance. However, I have two major problems. One is the battery life; it gets discharged within less than one day of use, while my previous phone 6230 used to last for 2 days easily at same amount of usage. Probably it takes more power due to WLAN, 3G etc, but then the battery should have taken this into acount. Second, I am not able to figure out, in the 'predictive text' input, how do I correct a word that is chosen by the phone wrongly. For example, in 6230, if I wanted to type 'go' the phone would give 'in'. I would then go to options>matches, select the correct word. Here in E51 I do not find that option.
Nokia does have it together... its a business phone meaning some businesses dont allow camera behind closed doors. They did it with the E50 too.
I have the E51 since several days and I think this phone is the best that I had.
Fast WiFi (like HTC) nice desing, and easy to use.
Best buy you have!!
can anyone tell me where i can download applications and games for this phone? Especially the quickoffice editor. I want to use its full capacity!ü
@"The new E51, NO CAMERA, MORE MONEY !"
probably more expensive materials or some bad thincs (soft. hard.) fixed?!?!?!?!
The new E51, NO CAMERA, MORE MONEY ! Hmmmmm . . . I thought Nokia had it together with the whole marketing deal. Wake up NOKIA !!!
Hi..can any body tell me..which is the latest software version available..Iam having 100.32.20
how can i configure the browser setting for the phone? a wifi connection asked to configure my proxy settings. i didn't seem to find how to change this. :c
Help, how can i view the time the message was sent to me??? (not the time i received the message)
Has anyone tried using HS45 AD54 with E51.
Nokia Europe website says it should work
I have been using the E 51 for past 2 months. First the weak points. It hangs atleast once in a couple of days. The stereophonic headphones switch between mono stereo at own will, could be set specific problem, but the problem is there since day one. In the Reminder's section , some basic Nokia Phones give the feature for selecting Birthdays and Anniversaries separately. To Call reminder separately but not in this phone. No Linux support (I tried, did'nt find any). Psiloc's wireless presenter does'nt work with Non Microsoft/Wibcomm Bluetooth drivers. I am using Toshiba Bluetooth Stack (no support for that). The box said E 51 1 GB, but the memory card supplied is actually 512 kb, the rest is available as shared phone memory. Now the good feaures. GPRS speed is good. The metallic backside cover gives a good sturdy feel. Installing applications is a breeze. User Interface has always been a forte with Nokia, so is same in this case too. Dedicated keys for Calendar, Menu,Phonebook and Messages are a big help. Applications like Nokia Maps/ Voice Aid/ QuickOffice/PDF Reader/ZIP utility come preinstalled. An application called Conversation comes pre-installed, which clubs all messages sent and received to a particular contact, based on the contact name, somethind similar to sort by name in Windows, only that it shows message in in box as well as sent items together clubbed by contact name, sorted by sent/received date and time. All imagineable connectivity options are their, Bluetooth, IR, WLAN, USB, GPRS. Connectivity option to Bluetooth Keyboard and printers are also available. All in all I am enjoying the usage of my phone barring some jarring hanging problems. I think I have a good buy.
