all reviews on nokia E6 said that it has a good battery life. I have used a blackberry 9780 & it is worse than that. BB lasted me till late evening but E6 doesnt last me beyond afternoon with a full charge.
Any comments / suggestions.
I'm not sure if I should buy the Nokia E5 again or the new E6.
My E5 was stolen a couple of weeks ago. I was really pleased with it, it was great for messaging, was user friendly, had a great battery life and it was a looker.
Will I be even more pleased with the E6? I mostly use it for social networking, messaging and basic surfing (when needed, I can switch to my Android Tablet).
The battery life concerns me most.
HeavenBlade, 01 Aug 2011I think you should go for Nokia E6 over the blackberry Curve 9300. Specs wise E6 is way better... morethe battery is good. I think the people who are having a battery backup problem is because the wlan scanning. It is set on as default. It should be turn off to have a big battery life.
im thinking of getting this phone. does this phone have a nokia facebook app or do you just use the web versin ? for a person that texts & always on facebook is the e6 or the n8 better ?
I think you should go for Nokia E6 over the blackberry Curve 9300. Specs wise E6 is way better while the price is almost same as that of the Curve 9300. Nokia should give a better battery back-up, though I would need some confirmation on this statement.
Should I buy a Blackberry curve 9300 or the E6....?
E6 costs 5k more than the Nokia but I think that is worth it.

madmiths, 31 Jul 2011Thank u ,,, one more thing ,jave softwars or games will suport in E6??What type of software? If you mean Facebook games, no it cant play. FB games needs high internet speed to play, internet speed on mobile at my location is slow. It's supposed to be a business phone after all.
I can of course play the games downloaded from Ovi Store.
It can play youtube videos, from both the in-built youtube site or Opera Mini. It can show sports livescore (tournament software)without needing to download any additional apps

Agreed, the notification light is not powerful, but the phone is very good over all.
I love E6. Except it is being stubborn on 1 thing, the WLAN scan refreshes every 5 secinds or so. How do I turn the wlan scan off? I already tried the following:
(1) from the homepage (widget) > Disconnect WLAN
(2) from Settings > Connectivity > Connection Manager > Disconnect WLAN
(3) from Settings > Connectivity > WLAN > Disconnect WLAN
(4) from Settings > Connectivity > WLAN > Settings > Show WLAN Avilability: Never
(5) Settings > Connectivity > Settings > Switch to WLAN: Manual
BUT still the scanning refreshes every 5 seconds or so. How do I turn the WLAN auto-scan off to save my battery life?

Thanks a lot for your bold comments. :-)
I am using E5 (not E6). This phone is great... moreNo, it's not better than the E5.
I also bought this phone because I was impressed with the E5, but the notification light is almost in-existing, the vibrations are almost not remarkable and it freezes when i Manage installations (install or uninstall) I think of giving it back. And I'll never buy a Nokia again.
They didn't even answer me if there's going to be a fix. They don't care about me, the paying customer!!!
im still hesitant to buy this phone. Will the symbian anna os can make a difference with android's froyo and gingerbread?
madmiths, 30 Jul 2011This one got radio transmitter?
will it suport java files?
and what all video files it su... more1) Radio Transmitter - Yes, it has FM radio, use your headset as aerial.
2) E6 plays wmv, avi, mkv,xvid, files that WMP can play. Choose "just copy" when you transfer avi files, it will play fine. flv files from youtube, need to convert 1st, the device software will do it.
It can play rmvb(mostly chinese shows) but not smooth due to the fps. I convert the rmvb to avi or wmv before copying over. Rmvb is still watchable if you dont want the trouble of converting.
1080 HD files I'm not sure since I dont download them - files very big, take very long to download.
all those who r complaining for cpu speed ... Just tell me one thing... most of andriods hav 800mghz processor n andriod is miulti tasker .. ie it keeps ur apps open n running in background evn if u exit... so android need more power.....
y dont u guys just use this phone n den compare it with other... it doesn't lag at ol... ya some 3rd part app do.... but its a b phone n bb killer....
