Hey,if anyone has bought E52 in India recently, please comment on its build quality..As far as I know, every review on internet says it has commendable build quality!!! But I have read many times in Gsmarena and other forums that its build quality lacks especially the D-pad and other keys..
Why there is so much fuss about it????
Please comment on it!! E52 Price In New Delhi-INR 12600
bought the phone today , and its amazing ! gud build,featres and its finger print proof !
The loud speaker and camera is lil downn..but its ok for casual snaps.! gr8 phone ! highly recommend it !
idont know wether the phone speaker has a problem or it originaly like that,while listening the other side talking the speaker sound like noise,similar to damage speaker .but the battery life has satisfied me alot.it last mush better then the other .the function is fullfill to my desire.
I got my hands on a Nokia E52 yesterday and I see nothing wrong with the build quality and it's NOT plastic as some of you say. This was a MADE BY NOKIA version and I expect the quality to be the same all across the board.
I pressed all the buttons too, on the side, top and front and they are ok as well. The E52 feels very solid to me.
This talk is coming from someone who currently has a E51 who everybody knows have a superior build quality.
Once again, the E52 is NOT plastic. Read GSMArena's review for more on the materials.
i bought E52 two weeks back.. working great.. previously i had E51.. i could'nt find any problem with E52.. has awesome features and good cam quality.. worth buying it..
E52 fan, 13 May 2010Only grey aluminium is available here in gujarat.thanks for the confirmation.
For Those who have bought the phone in india..
Hows is the build quality of the e52 ?? How is the loud speaker's performance??
could someone please confirm if grey-aluminium color is available in india?
Nokia website doesn't mention it, but people on this forum have claimed to have got one in grey (i'd expect they bought genuine one)

thanx for ur review. It seems tht battery life is amazing.
plz give ur review. As u r frm india, we cn get idea of batch tht's prepared for india.
Thanx nd regards,
i just bought a E52 yesterday,
but dere is no digital compass as is written in the specs.
could any1 guide, from where could i download da same???
I bought this phone almost a week ago. I did upgrade the software version to 034 from 031. Now, my dilemma is the battery. I am just using it for SMS only since I am a text person with a few wi-fi on the side to download some applications.
I wonder why my battery only last for 2-3 days not even heavy usage?
1.I lower the volume to save battery.
2.I am using GSM not 3g network to save battery.
3.Power Saver is activated.
4.Bluetooth is off.
5.I make sure no application is open or running.
5.I did charge it initially according to phones manual specification.
6.Vibrator is off.
7. Plainly use it for SMS really and calls.
Terrible build-quality and QC. My advice is don't buy this: if you do then you're basically playing roulette on whether you get a good one
I was pretty happy with my E51 and so bought an E52 today: a 'Made in Finland' version bought in Switzerland running firmware 033.002 (custom version listed as dated 12 March 2010). In terms of functionality it's certainly an improvement on the E51 (useful improvements in ergonomics - particularly in messaging and a nice screen which is reasonably visible in daylight), but the build is very poor
Ignore the supposed 'reviews' - the exterior is actually plastic (*NOT* metal), with the exepction of the battery cover which seems to be a wafer-thin piece of textured steel and it feels very, very weak
The down-button on the D-pad of mine doesn't click and is difficult to press so I took it back after a few hours (the sample one in the shop was fine in this respect) and, of course, the result is that it will have to be sent away for several weeks (no replacement) while the wretched thing gets repaired - even though it arrived in that state in the box
My E51 was/is very solid. I think the all-platic Samsung 1100 I bought on prepay for 5 GB pounds during a trip to the UK at christmas has *much* better build quality than this E52. I don't understand why Nokia should build a supposedly 'premium' phone so poorly and operate such lax quality control (nor do I understand why so many internet reviews claim it is 'well' constructed). I guess the 'trolls' might have a point and Nokia has indeed lost the plot...
E52 fan, 12 May 2010Hi rohit, plz give us comprehensive review of e52. Hw u feel abt battery, wi-fi, stability ... moreThe phone is great. Battery lasts 7 days if you don't use 3g, wifi and games. 10 days if you turn it off at night. Quality is great. It's the fastest symbian device I have ever had. Wifi works great. The browser is not so good. Opera mini is the best on the market. You can even watch youtube with the phone. It has push email. It is the most perfect Nokia on the market. I believe there are other Nokias like it, but none are better. Camera is so so, but then again, who careas about the camera on the phone. The GPS is perfect. I have a Garmin nuvi device and the only difference is the bigger screen on the garmin device. Just a great phone. You won't regret buying it.
