I just downloaded the nokia energy profiler onto my e52 and it showed up consuming exactly 56mA. So i'm guessing my opinions of battery life calculation is probably wrong considering I charge my phone once in 3-4 days. Please take your battery to an expert and get it checked. You could probably short the batter ends with a specific resistor (probably 50-60ohm) and see how long it takes to drain. That should give you an estimate about how much power it actually stores. Simpler still ...... replace your battery!!!!!

Consider this. The E52 battery is rated as 1500mAh which i guess would mean it could provide you with 1500mA of current for 1 hour. So considering your phone is consuming 56mA of current, simple mathematics would show that 1500mAh / 56mA = 26.78 hrs of power which is pathetically low for an E52.
Please read my previous reply and see if it helps reduce your current consumption.....

I ... moreIf your power consumption is high I think it could be that your WLAN scan is perpetually on even though you're not browsing. Its important to note that the WLAN scan is not an application but more like a background system function hence it won't show up in your running application list.
A probable solution would be to either disable the scan when you don't require it or reduce the TX power of your WLAN transmitter. To do this go to
1. Menu/Ctrl Panel/Settings/Connection/WirelessLan/ 2. Left click Options/Advanced Settings/ (Click YES)
3. Scroll down to TX power level (don't change anything else)
4. You get 3 options 100mW/10mW/4mW (default is 100mw)
5. Choose 10mW as a compromise though frankly I've not had a problem with even 4mW....
Hopefully this should solve your battery drainage problem. If this fails then I suggest you do a controlled complete drain of your battery using an appropriate current limiting resistor and recharge the battery from its base level. Sort of like formatting a battery :)
hi.. my e52 doesn't seem to perform well on battery life. It hardly lasts a day and a half. I installed nokia energy profiler app and found that on average it consumes around 56mA with no other application running in background. Any e52 user, plz tell how much current your phone consumes. thanks.. :)

because u have already one c5 for ur wife. I can nt suggest nt to take it as its display is very poor in direct sunlight. But u know the diff is only 3500rs and u r loosing wifi,doc editor,font magnifier, full functional adv call mgr, bright n large dispjay,larger keypad,dual mode home sacreen,psiloc traveler,ngage etc etc, which takes e52 far far away frm c5. Still at its place, c5 is nt bad at all.
I am using a e52 for a week now. Its a wonderful smartphone specially at the price its been offered.Web surfing,texting and calling is a breeze. The large display (compared to other e series phones) makes it brilliant for viewing full HTML pages.The battery life has been satisfactory as well.
However on the negative side the camera quality is very poor and the sensor is not always accurate...apart from these flaws its an excellent business phone....a must buy!!!!
does E52 supports
browsing with tabs?
while browsing in a window if a popup opens. Does the popup opens in a new window?
while browsing a webpage can i see flash content, some kind of moving ads?
while browsing a webpage can i see java content?
i am basically looking like how i see a webpage in internet explorer. can i have same experience in E52 also!
Rohan, 06 Jul 2010The E52 your looking at is probably a refurbished one. I've has a Finland one for over a month... moreThanks, i vl nt go for a used one. Rathar i am waiting for one of my relatives coming frm abroad, he has just taken it there(20 days back), he has offered it to give it to me on coming here. I will discuss with you if i get it till 15th of dis mnth. You r i think frm the IT field n better know about the refurbished ones. I pray to God, that the handset i vl get might nt be a refurbished one. Vl post u my opinion soon.
I like everything about the phone except its reliability. It automatically restarts itself down while talking on the phone, while texting, on its own will. So, in short I would never recommend anyone to buy this phone.
Rohan, 06 Jul 2010The E52 your looking at is probably a refurbished one. I've has a Finland one for over a month... moreAnother point to consider when buying a second hand one is that the ear speaker of the E52 has a very fine mesh protecting it. This mesh can get pretty badly clogged up with dirt which would explain why the ear piece sound diminishes over time. Cleaning this mesh is a very cumbersome process and requires opening the "A" front faceplate and requires a couple of specific tools for the purpose. I reiterate my stand that when it comes to the E52, considering that its a lot more delicate than other nokia's, its not advisable to go in for a used piece.

I've has a Finland one for over a month now and its fast and stable. Then again this is just my opinion after owning both korea vs india made E52's. I advise you not but a used E52. Instead go in for the Nokia C5.

sorry, i m in ncr here. Today i saw a fin make used 211 hours e52. You wont believe it was very slow while opening any app. Also the sound was a bit slow as compared to mine. I am confused now. Is ur voice very down as i see or normal. Mine is normal.

My opinion stated very subtle differences and I doubt you'll be disappointed with your present phone. However if you do want a second phone made in Finland, if your in Blore i suggest you try Mahaveer Electronics, 3rd shop on the left in the left hand basement corridor of National Market Ghandhibazar. It costed me 11.5k and included the car stand etc.
Please tell me what made is good to purchase is it of FINLAND, KOREA, CHINA??????? Also i hav read that this phone has hang problem please tel me whether i should purchase this one or any other model with same specification !!!! PLEASE REPLY

A 5.0 MP camera with Carl Zeis autofocus lens and xenon flash + Video of 30fps + display screen of 2.6" would have really made this phone the very best.

from where u can take a fin make handset with cofidence. I have one made in korea. But want to hav it 2nd one for family. Due to superior finish, i think made in finland u would recommend. Though i am nt facing any big prob with the unit i have except sometimes it gets hang. Pl reply.
My wife and I have had E52's since August 2009. I assume they were made in China cause is said "Made by Nokia". Both phones had the same minor solvable glitches cropping up at the same time. However one design flaw that's very unlike other Nokia's is its ability to withstand minor drops. Previous phones of mine like the E51 would become loose or the back plate would fly off when dropped but you could always put it back together. The E52 construction is however less "airy" than other nokia's with such minute flexiblity that the front "A" plate, which is very thin at the edges, cracks very easily. So we both decided to get new phones. My wife picked up the Nokia C5 which has most of the features of the E52 including GPS but no WIFI and costed around Rs.8k.
I on the other hand got roped in for a second time and found out that the grey market were selling two types of E52's. One Silver "Made in Finland" costing Rs.11.5k without warranty and the another Black "Made in Korea" costing Rs.12.5k with taxes and 1yr warranty. A close look at the back panel screws and circuit board (RM06 vs RM08) of the Korean one proved that the Finland phone had a marginally superior finish so I went in for the Finland one. Its been a month and with the new phone and along with latest firmware I've found that Nokia have made a number of subtle but important improvements in the phone. I'm keeping my fingers crossed about not buying the phone with warranty but I've realised that with electronic equipment if it doesn't give you trouble within the first couple of weeks your good to go for well over the period covered by the warranty. Besides Nokia India's warranty and aftersales are nothing to write home about.
Overall I'd still recommend this phone to anyone willing to spend the extra money for something classy. However if you want more bang for you buck and are willing to do without WLAN go in for the Nokia C5.
