As I am a mobile dealer in India since 17 months, I have got good experience with almost all leading mobiles, even some models which are not marketed in India, but available in Middle East etc.One of my friend ( thanks to Mr. Abdul Kunju)from Tirur, Kerala gifted me one brand new Finnish made of E-52 before a couple of weeks. Now I am using the same and I never experienced such an AMAZING mobile in this 'category'.My evaluations are as follows
1. super slim design with Aluminium body, but very easy to hold/handle.
2. Battery gets full charged within a short span of time approx 6hrs.
3.Super bright display with good viewing angle. you can read letters in mid-noon even the brightness is kept below 25%.
4. Good battery backup. I am getting minimum 4days back up with more than 8hrs of talk time.
5. Good speed.
6. "smart" smart dialing.( the BEST seen in non-android mobiles)
7. you can keep "16" short cut keys.
8.good ring volume and music player with equilizer
9.good internet and wi-fi speed.
10. auto rotation and compass
11.good GPS speed.In addition to the inbuilt map, google map works fine
12. I am using class-10, 16gb memory card without any problem.
13.The 3.2mp camera is superb but no auto focus. it can compete with some current 5mp(even Nokia's C-5,5mp)of some leading brands.
14.I am using LED flash as torch light( the application is downloaded from Nokia Sore @ Rs 15.00)
15. Beep free call recording is possible with Total Call Recorder(which is also downloaded from Nokia Store @ Rs 250.00)
16. full version of Concise Oxford dictionary is working very smoothly(which will not work on Nokia 6120-C and C-5)
17. full version of Black List is working properly.
18. wattsapp,flip font ( you can change the fonts to 32 differant styles)full version etc are also working properly
19. superb key pad
20. the inbuilt 'font zoomer' helps to re size the fonts so any old person can also read the letters smoothly.
But I am facing a small problem on my mobile. it takes 2 to 3 seconds to activate the camera, while pressing the camera key.
The given head set is not good when compared with some other nokia head sets.
