well this is strange.
I just did a phone call from my e52 just a while ago.
I asked the one answering my call if he can hear me, he said I was okay.
I asked if it was loud, said it was.
asked also if he can clearly hear me and he said it was clear.
the bottom of the phone was 4 inches from my mouth and I couldn't feel any electric shock.
We really need to get to the bottom of this.
Hardware or Software Issue... very strange.
In my opinion, I still think it's the firmware.
Software Version Date

trf was right! apple iphone is not 'rock' as 'anonymous' think, iphone is suck!!!
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2009Apple iPhone rocks !
Go on with ur faulty Nokia E52s !!! hahahahahaha !!!! yup. you're right there, Apple iPhone is a "rock". next to useless as a phone.
Sound is too low.
No haptic feedback when pressing the virtual keys.
You have to recharge it like 2-3 times a day.
Screen scratches so easily, case scratches with just your fingernail.
It's more sensitive than a girl. sheesh.
Super high maintenance...
Oh and yes, we have an Apple iPhone, iPod Classic and iPod Touch.
(We also have the Mac mini, Macbook and Macbook Pro just so you know. Nice to look at, but not very useful.)
The iPod is a very nice entertainment device.
but iPhone = fail.
It's nice the first month or so, but soon after, it's annoying as hell as a phone.
Oh and you can buy 3-5 decent phones of any brand with the price on that sucker too.

Maybe we could start comparing the above numbers to see where the various problems are? I have not experienced the phone shutting down or re-starting, or freezing. The only problems I have is the quality of the sound for the person I talk to (exactly like "jack" describes.... a couple of minutes in to every call), and YES, sometimes I feel something like a small electro shock while I am talking and have the pohone close to my ear!
Apple iPhone rocks !
Go on with ur faulty Nokia E52s !!! hahahahahaha !!!!
despite all the problems reported here (some users report of no problems!) the mobile is still rated quite high. GSM Arena has given this cell very high scores. I guess it is the users faults that result in crashes and hangs. I think people should use their phones more carefully and wait for a firmware upgrade.
I don't have this cell, but have been looking forward to getting one soon... with the problems reported, I guess I will have to wait longer.
wanttobuy, 13 Oct 2009does this phone perform that bad?? hard to find a positive comment for this product. actually ... moreDont!
even if the phone reaches your expectations...
their will go something going wrong ! and then you are dependend of the nokia service... and that is realy below standard!
just try to get hold of them, just in contact with a real person! then you know.. it is definitly worth NOT-buying a nokia!

e72 basically has the same issues with this baby.
Anyway, for all of you experiencing problems with the phone:
What exactly were you doing with it before it died?
Did you run too many apps at once?
Did you have have the sensors on?
Were you using the camera and moving it too fast?
Did you upload too many emails to it?(check your real mail inbox people)?
Did you play with the Gallery a lot?
I think we can better resolve issues if we can collect as much data on how we used the phone before it died.
Using a much more basic phone means less moving parts, less software on it meaning less likely to break.
You have to be more gentle in using smartphones, they tend to be a bit sensitive when handled too hard(usage).
very bad phone, I have one, made in finland for one month and every day restarting, blocking, some times I cant turn one after switching off him self, there is not yet a new software for him, the first one is very bad with so much mistakes, I hope that NOKIA will release a new one. if they dont I must bay again a E71 or maybe e72 when he come...
Its true, this phone is a a real crab. Mine have all the unthinkable defects. I threw it away and picked my
daughter`s old old phone, am back to the basics, I want to live in peace and not pass my life running
behind a multi-millionaire company which (take) my money and unable to offer me a decent product.
Its really SAD.
anyone from uae having problems with e 52 like hanging, restarting?????????????
There's finally a gold e52. ^_^
Surprisingly, it looks kinda weathered.
Must be because it's a demo.
Tomal, 13 Oct 2009My E52 has been working perfectly fine. Why there is so many -ve reviews here? :S
Maybe you... moreTo TOMAL:
MOST of the people who complain about their E52 says theirs was made in either Finland or Korea.
I have had the phone for 5 weeks now, and no problems with restart, locking, and so on. BUT, I have a BIG problem with call quality! I can hear people perfectly on my end, but if I am on a call for more than 2-3 minutes EVERY person I talk with will lose MY voice... they say it is like I am talking in a tunnel (when I am sitting in my office)... they even say that my voice all out disappears!!! This is REALLY bad... I am holding the phone correctly almost horizontally to my mouth and reception signal si 100%... BAD BAD BAD!!!
Now, lastly, is it just my own imagination, or do others feel like they get a small electrical shock from the phone while talking??? Nothing really big, but certainly something that I can feel! Anyone else?
This phone is perfect...
The keypad are too soft guyss just enjoying a lot to type...
Camera sumhow is good...
Its slim which i like it in that...
Net browsing is too fast...
Little beat of sound disapoint me...
Just buy this phone guys...
Nokia's best cell phone... just buy it...
Well if the entire board is changed (with new IMEI) then certainly a batch of Nokia E52 must have been faulty.
I dont know why these days Nokia is getting cheap. :| Every model of theirs is having issues. Even N97 has problem where lens get scratched. I am now worried abt my E52. So far it is going fine. But judging from the number of negative comments, I am now in tension.
if you guys are having second thoughts on this then there are other alternative handsets to choose from.. if you want something that has about the same specs then id suggest you get the 5630xm.. same specs altogether and the only difference i think will be the camera (5630xm has fixed focus, not autofocus) and the screen size (5630xm has 2.2 and e52 has 2.4). so if those things are a small price to pay, then go and get the 5630xm.
and regarding the FW version. the latest FW so far is v12 the 5630xm, so if you have bugs or yer FWE is v11, then just simply upgrade it to v12 and problem solved @_@
other than the 5630xm, you can also go for the 6720 (better camera @ 5mp autofocus) or the 6730. and both have similar specs and all that. though id recommend the 6720 because it has a 3.5mm audio jack and the 6730 has 2.5. so if you have some fairly decent headphones there then you'd lose the audio connectivity.
to make it short, best alternatives are the 5630xm or the 6720c.
dian gara is absolutely right! sell that **** phone immediately after u get from Nokia Care, before u regret.. (i sell my E52 quickly after get from Nokia Care) better buy 6720 classic

What i notice is the bad receiving and transceiving voice is because noice reduction system on E52 is nor working properly. Many E52 users have the same symptoms. No wonder users complaint it a lot. You should check Nokia Discussions Group on discussions.nokia-asia.com or discussions.europe.nokia.com
You will shock that many users complaint almost THE SAME; instability, hang-freeze-restart, voice problem, etc.
It's the hardware, not a firmware. So better you take it on NCC and after it get right, then sell it as soon as possible.
