frankly i don't get why ppl would crave for a 'metal build body', while in the same time ask for a compact and light form factor..
as long as the plastic are not too flimsy, the mount is not loose, i'm in fact happy with the fact that it's plastic as that now it has less weight.
if you are not happy with the phone design, stop whining and sell it off already while it still worth some $$$, use the funding to get some other models and be done with.
just got this phone last sunday and still i dont know how to activate the internet.... ive read the manual and still i dont get it.....WTF

Same thing I said the other day, the E52 build quality is comparable to the E51's build quality. People who complain about the build quality probably got a non-genuine one.
John, 19 May 2010Does this phone worth 12000/- ? its definately worth 12k or even more...those who are complaining of its build quality , i dont agree with them..its build quality is at par with e51 ...it is much better than e51 in all specs , ..please dont compare this phone with e72 cos its a diff. Platform...i think after getting this phone in india(under warranty) it has picked up sales...
Original_Jamaican, 19 May 2010For somebody who wants to upgrade to a new phone, since you advise them not to buy E52, which ... moreYou ask me to provide recommendations for other Nokia phones when the only current model I have is the E52? I get the feeling that this is becoming a bit 'personal' on your side - did you check your E52 and do you now accept that the case is made of plastic (except battery cover) whatever lies may have been printed in the reviews?
If I could get my money back for my E52 I would look at either the E72 (though this is too big for me) or maybe the C5 (though this lacks WiFi and I've not seen a real one yet so can't really comment). Otherwise I would look at other brands: HTC, Samsung and SonyEricsson. After the E52 experience I think other brands are now looking attractive to me
Previous Nokia phones I've had: 6250, 6520, 6300, E51
Non-Nokia phones: SE w880i (beautiful build - I hoped the E52 would be the same!), Samsung 1100, Samsung Omnia i8000, HTC Desire (last two are company phones, not for personal use, and not really comparible with the others in terms of functionality or price)
Of all of these phones, the E52 is the worst built (marginally worse than the 6300, but at least that other phone had a very good keypad)
Best phone one can ever had. As it supports both symbian and java platforms.

Tom cruze, 18 May 2010Anonymous,tell me. RU have all the nokia mobile phones. Ur a jokermyb he have all phone in the world,
Mine is Korean made Golden, never heard Finnish in Korea, west meets east or maybe hoax by company to avoid Chinese made. Upgrade to E51thats all! Speaker of all E series low & flat, maybe Finland has car horns low and stupid influence their cells.
So what should I finally assume
is this handset worth the price & Quality?
Anyone who purchased with Indian warranty pls revert.
I just have one question and would like to be answered. How does E 72 work in using Twitter , FB and other social networking application?
Otherwise, I think I found the smartphone I was looking for
Anonymous, 18 May 2010Sorry but the E52 does *not* have a metal: I think you may be mistaking silver plastic for alu... moreWhoops... lots of spelling mistakes in my post :-*
I wanted to say "the E52 does not have a metal CASE" and "I don't know why Nokia tooK so little interest in this model"
Original_Jamaican, 13 May 2010I got my hands on a Nokia E52 yesterday and I see nothing wrong with the build quality and it'... moreSorry but the E52 does *not* have a metal: I think you may be mistaking silver plastic for aluminium (which it isn't). The only part of this phone which is metal is the battery cover and that is very flimsy - the rest is plastic, and not terribly good plastic at that. The construction rather reminds me of my old Nokia 6300 which was a nice phone to use (it had better button feel than the E52) but who's plastic centre-frame decided to disintegrate just after the guarantee expired
I compared the E52 with my colleague's E72 and that other phone is a world away in terms of build quality - very solid and with a good button feel, pretty much like on the E51. I really don't know why Nokia too so little interest in this model - I guess there's a former Nokia product-manager now looking for alternative employment
My recommendation remains not to buy the E52
I want to share my personal point ofveiw. since the relese of of e52 iam contineusly reading users opinions and experts reviews becuase i was planing to update my cell. bt last night when i visited my freind who is working in NOKIA CARE CENTRE he adviced me not to buy this phone becuse till now more than dozens of phones came to nokia care due to its mic and mother board problem.
MY freind said than e52 mother board is very thin jus like a VISITING CARD n too much sensetive,
Second thing is that there is more than hundreds of SECOND HAND e52 available in market in saudi arabia in price of jus 600 SAR which prove its low market values
I suggest to all my brothers if they want to purchase nokia E-series then go to
And in Nseries go to
