This can be annoying at times - e.g. Hotmail - and is also slightly pointless when it comes to streaming video.
Youtube is identical to what it looks like on PC, but the connection speed/processing power of the E52 is still not enough to run the video well enough.
This is why mobile browsers that compress data are a bit better. I still think Skyfire is excellent, but it's a bit ahead of its time...
The built-in web browser on E52 is good, but can be a bit annoying when it comes to navigation and also crashes out at times.
Opera Mobile does not work and Opera Mini seems pointless when you are using a smartphone that can run flash and other online programming protocols.
I probably will stick with the browser that came with the phone, it's just a shame Skyfire has a major flaw - you cannot edit any of its settings...

You compare E52 with 5730, so which is your opinion about E52 & 5800XM ?

A 8GB will NOT slow down your E52. I have a E51 with a 8GB and it moves superfast. ... morei just purchased the 8GB and it didn't slow it down.
Thanks for the tip.
it's super fast.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2009Even though I am UK based/citizen and have only shopped/ordered from a few US websites, Timtec... moreI looked into Expansys UK (they actually have a US site, but the E52 isn't available) and the reviews were generally complaining about customer service, NOT the items being sold. So that is a plus for me. I'm not sure if I'm ready to drop USD420 + currency conversion fees, though.
Is the going rate in the UK about GBP230? It seems the average price in the US is USD350 -> GBP212. But it also seems that the phones available to the US are always sourced from HK, not Europe.
I might just wait until it actually gets released in the US. I had a friend contact a Nokia store in Chicago to see when it was coming and got the typical reply - they had no clue.
As for the credit card charge back, wow, yeah that didn't even cross my mind. I've never had to go through that, but you are right, it is very nice to know that is an option.
To all those anon's who keep asking about the camera's picture quality and such:
A forum user named Paul provided this review, which I found useful.
tinyurl . com / l2sqm2
Also, gsmarena's review contains no less than eight pictures taken with this phone! Look on Page 7.

E52 is better than 5610XM...
Maybe you can compare E52 with 5730XM...
They have nearly same features.
But 5730XM has a autofocus cam (with good optic and 8x Zoom), music keys and keypad+qwerty
(Other features are nearly the same)
E52 has longer battery life than 5730XM.
E52 is 98gr and slim, 5730XM is 135gr and fat.
E52 --> upto 16GB, 5730XM --> upto 8GB card.
E52 has higher processor with 600Mhz.
E52 -->Nokia Maps 3.0+Digital Compass,
5730XM ---> Nokia Maps 2.0
"Nokia N79" has the best features among all nokia phones but keypad sucks and its processor a bit slower because of heavy feautes. In short, It's not useful.
E52's only disadvantage; non-autofocus cam and 15fps
Anyway, it has a nearly average (enough) cam features for a business phone. So its cam is not so bad.
The Cam shots great photos outside in daylight.
But its performance is decreasing in other places with lower daylight. (Photos become a little noisier)
I don't like qwerty pad. So I won't wait for E72.
E52 is the best phone with great keypad and good features.
I have this phone for 1 week now, it is grate, a lot of new features but the case looks very very cheap.

stefancho, 22 Aug 2009...also do u think i should wait for the E72 because i really like its bigger screen...
rom... morelol :D i really didn't noticed that. i think maybe because the landscape one looks bigger (even if it's not actually). anyway the landscape screen looks much convenient for me :D
the problem now is i can't wait until the E72 comes out. so i'm thinking to buy the E52 but i'm not really convinced with that choice.
so if anyone can help me with some reviews
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2009Yes, it has a 128 MB Ram/256 MB Rom (NAND Flash)how much the free RAM ? 90MB ??? like N79/ N82... :) please answer me, thank you very much.

hey everyone i'm buying a new phone in the coming weeks and i was thinking about this E52. just want to know if anyone one got it and had any problems with it.

A 8GB will NOT slow down your E52. I have a E51 with a 8GB and it moves superfast. Go for Transcend 8GB Class 6, that's what I have.
Previously I had a A-DATA Class 6 but the phone was noticeable slower especially starting it.
With my Transcend, it seems as if there's no memory card in it. Really fast !!!
joe, 21 Aug 2009i just bought it but i was wondering if an 8GB micro sd would slow the phone's performance it ... moreI read in some reviews (test results), it's not slow even with 16 GB.
With excellent keypad E52 is better than E55.
But E55 is a little faster than E52.
(very very little/in miliseconds)
Only a few deficiencies:
-TV out (In my opinion it's not so necessary)
-FM transmitter (Not so necessary)
-Low Cam Fps (15 fps) (It would be good with 30 fps)
But except these, it's really great phone.
(By the way, it's more useful than E55)
I think E52 is the best phone of 2009.
I will definitely buy this phone.
But I don't know When does it come to Turkey?
I hope it will come out on 28th August or firs week of September in Turkey same time with All Europe Countries.
(It already has been released in U.K. and some other countries since 11th August)
i just bought it but i was wondering if an 8GB micro sd would slow the phone's performance it is super fast but i need a larger memory
so what would u say??????
