My E52 is made from Korea. Its what it says at the back under the battery. So far the whole build is really good. To me the downside is the aluminum made cover. It looks like it's easily dented if an accident happens.
The other problem that I observed is that the video player seems to lag when playing mp4 videos greater than 1gb. I don't know why this is happening when the processor is already 600mhz. But in my 5800, playing videos even greater than 2gb seems flawless. No lags at all despite the 434mhz processor of 5800.
So far no other problems found. I'm going to test if I use core player in E52, it would still have the same result.
Seems like Finland phone much better than f/China or India, eventhough they have same standard QC. Any cooment?
Well, let's see...I bought this phone 31.st of December (shopping day :)) and here it is:
I loved the features, battery and lightweight BUT, yes there is big BUT about it. THE BUILD QUALITY...it says it's MADE BY NOKIA (not made in Finland or made in Hungary) and I think it means it's made in China although it doesn't say it is made in China...I don't want to say things from China are bad but this was not a good build quality.
first-aluminium frame around the keypad is too thin and it doesn't hold well...it goes left and right when you take the phone and when the thumb goes over the frame. it would't be a downside if there where not the strange sounds coming from the bad frame construction...simply it is too thin and when I spoke on the phone people told me that they hear strange "click" sounds. I have checked in other stores and all "made by Nokia" had the same issue with the aluminium frame.The frame is not fixed well or it is too thin to hold the front fascia. It started to be annoying and few other software issues made me to replace it for Nokia 6700 classic (silver-chrome) and this 6700 works perfect and feels solid perfect too. I hope other people will post similar issues to see if this "made by Nokia" E52 issues are the true downside of this long awaited phone.
this phone i bought it last 3 hours this phone is fast like for example the application going from one application to other application it never freez for more info ym me at jefhsy

GJ, 24 Jan 2010E52 is the 'jancok' mobile.. its so complete bro !+ 100! best nokia e-series
Is it true that the E52 made in finland have no problems as compared to the ones made in china?
Is this great phone made in Finland? here in KSA I noticed most of New nokia phones are made in China or India. I hope this phone will be from Finland so I can get one.

Anonymous, 26 Jan 2010WK how about you explain how to do it rather than some smart remark?
The E52 locks and unlo... morecertainly not very friendly tone u have there.
the phone came default with keylock automatically enabled after a short while. a user would have gone thru the 'unlock' process long before he or her care to flip open the manual -- which is the first place to go should one have a problem.
and not many know their way out on which-key-is-which, that the person might just go lost trying to find the key.
so no, that's no smart tone, that was being helpful and nice.
again, i dislike ur rudeness, and hey, that's just ME commenting YOU.

The E52 locks and unlocks differently than most Nokia phones and even the people in the shop where I bought mine didn't know how to do it. I found it myself messing with it while they looked through the manual.
To the person asking you push the top left key (-) then the top right key (-)...this unlocks the phone and the same combo will lock it also.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2010how do I lock the keypad on the E52?press left selection key followed by right selection key to lock your mobile n vice versa to open.....
I am from India and have been using E51 for 2 years. I recently switched to this higher sibling. It is working nicely but TeamSuite app is not pre-installed in it. When I tried to install it, it failed with a certificate error. Can anyone help me remove this error and install TeamSuite? Thanks in advance.
keypad can be locked the same way as how u unlock it.
i dun seems to face the mic fading voices issue, care to describe more?
firmware version? made in?
the camera sound can be turned off through firmware hack if you have fw ver021. check out "helloox2" (doesn't work with ver022).
sw utilities need to be updated with the relevant processor info to be able to tell the actual speed.
