-bluetooth disconnects automatically after 5 or so minutes
-random hang (in music player, calling, navigating menus)
This phone would have been perfect for me if it weren't for the hangs. One time it hanged and it won't turn on again. I returned it to nokia, it took 3 weeks (WTF!) that is with me calling every two days following up the status of my phone. When i got my newly repaired phone, of course it has a new IMEI number. The bluetooth and random hang problem is still there. Sad :(
I don't know if there is a particular batch of phones that has this problem. Worse part is I can't replicate the random hang problem when im in nokia.
Shashank, 30 Dec 2009Good phone, I have been using it for almost a month in India and faced no problem at all. It h... moreHd mine a month now and a few probs at beggining but it was due to memory card,,you must back up what you have and reformat it in e52,,If you takes it from another fone and put it in it never works,,i had this time after time with xperia to htc pro,,n95 to n82 and so on..The back up and other bits of data cause crashes so you have to use a clean card in each new fone,,im using 16gb nearly 2 years now..Have nothing wrong now and ordered a mugen 18oo mA battery to last even longer..
Nokia 52 is a very nice phone and very good in use but has a great bad that when you are in the road trip that has problems with listening to other people not to listen to good aaato I tried all things but without sukases.Une suggest not spend to buy not worth it.
These units that are causing so much problems are TEST UNITS of the First Batch and Nokia is still testing the consumer defects that are found. That is the WISDOM behind not rushing in to buy the NEWEST units but to wait for the later batches that will have STABLE SOFTWARE and better build quality.
SO wait until the newer units arrive with all defects corrected already.
Personally I love this phone because of its awesome battery life and slim profile, imagine having a thin ipod like phone in your front pocket listening to MP3 music. But I am willing to wait until the dust has settled and the phone software problems have been eliminated.
I just bought this phone 2 days ago at Surabaya, Indonesia. I had no problems such as auto-restart or hang up. Now I'm using firmware V 022.009 . Here are my review about E52 :
- Music quality with speaker or earpiece is excellent with bass booster which can be found at audio settings.
- Camera quality is good but sadly there is no auto-focus.
- Browsing also excellent with 3G or wi-fi.
- Battery life is excellent.
- Video quality is very good. I downloaded some movies in xvid format and converted it to mp4 with 15 fps, 320x240 pixel and 192 kbits.
Overall this phone is worth to buy. Some people are confuse to buy this phone or Nokia 5630 xpressmusic, my suggestion if you prefer longer battery life, better buy E52. I don't buy Nokia 5630 because shorter battery life and smaller screen (2.2 inches).
By the way firmware V 022.009 is unhackable for now.
If you want good games for E52, just install vbagx (GBA emulator). Then you can play pokemon,zelda,final fantasy,fire emblem,the sims,harvest moon and a lot more good GBA games !
Usman, 30 Dec 2009Hi guys I looking forward to buy this phone so plz tell me is it worth buying or not ? t... moreIf value for money is your priority, buy 5630, it has pretty much the same exact specs...
Can those of you claiming to have such big problems include in your post whether your phone is Made in Finland or Made by Nokia?
had it three days and it is back at the shop.......won't charge or restart ...its a pitty because I was really looking forward to use it ..............biggest Sack of Kack ever !
Bart, 30 Dec 2009The graphite gray E52 is definately not a myth... I have one that I purchased in Singapore.
... moreWell I can't find the Graphite Grey for sale anywhere. All the internet retailers are falsely using it's picture and name to sell the Black version.
I also want Made in Finland not Made by Nokia.
Usman, 30 Dec 2009Hi guys I looking forward to buy this phone so plz tell me is it worth buying or not ? t... moreThis is the best smart phone available in the price range of 170 Euro on Planet Earth. This is the VFM (Value for money) Phone.
I looking forward to buy this phone so plz tell me is it worth buying or not ?
Good phone, I have been using it for almost a month in India and faced no problem at all. It hung up only once. Music quality is good on my personal headphones. Photo quality is also good, though I haven't recorded any video so far. In absence of multimedia use, its battery lasted for 6 days. Good for someone like me, who already used the legendary E51 for one and half year. Larger screen is a boon to send - receive SMSs as well as to read-write e-mails. So advice is : buy if you need a good E-series phone, slightly better than the E63 and much advanced then E51. Bye.
The graphite gray E52 is definately not a myth... I have one that I purchased in Singapore.
Having compared the gray to the black and brown versions I think it is definately the best colour for this phone... but its personal taste I gues..
Btw... no problems whatsoever with the phone, Made by Nokia so Chinese made, and cost approx. $350 AU.
k2, 29 Dec 2009hi to all,plz find it for what is it? music player/all song/ option/play: on phon via external... moreWhat?
Maybe get someone who speaks English to help you post. Your post is impossible to understand.
hi to all,plz find it for what is it? music player/all song/ option/play: on phon via external player?!!!external player may be means fm transmitter or work with bluetooth or wifi?!
T Smith, 28 Dec 2009Have nokia e52 approx 12 days, will not charge after a couple of secs, says battery is fullhi, i think the problem is the last firmware vers. mine stats making problems after the software update.
got this less than a month ago...a great phone for me actually..wifi ready, 3.5mm jack, 3.2 mp camera...large screen, high end looking phone, love the aluminum look..BUT; it hangs all the time, when using the camera and you pan it on a rapid motion, it hangs, when plugging the charger, sometimes it changes the background color then hangs, comes with 1 gb only; i have to buy a 4 gb memory card to satisfy my crave for music and photos, photo quality-6 out of 10, scratch magnet, it turns itself off then on again--just so annoying! i hope they would make changes or upgrade the system of the phone, it is really a nice phone...though, i have it give it up...just cant live up to my expectations... bye e52!
I read ur comments about this phone, in my opinion the phone is good but the whole problem is the software becuase of the phone is new that's why there is alot of hanging and restarting i think all this errors will disappear after install the new version of the software.
