james, 21 Mar 2009for battery life make sure that lj mode on. then u wil get ariund 4030 hrs. 2. fold acurren... moreHi ive just bought the e66 and the batery life seems to die pretty quick even though im not even using it much. Is there a way to get it to last for longer
Have been using the phone for about a week now and I can say its pretty good cel phone.
A few things to improve though:
-Voice Command (Doesnt work properly and you cant teach the phone to improve performance).
- Camera options-bar doesnt rotate when you turn the phone (Accelerometer)
- You can't define a netweork acces point in a "per session" basis, I mean, if you use more than one application that needs data connection, the phone will keep asking you the NAP for each.
-Not the best sound with the mono-built-in speaker.
-I cant hear very well with handsfree in a noisy environment.
- Some features or functions are treated as applications (and the may keep running in the background even if they shouldnt) as Phonebook, Call record, etc.
The good things:
- Almost everything: Design, performance, construction quality...
So far, I love this phone. (being an former HTC TILT user) Im not even missing the QUERTY keyboard!
Cheers and enjoy this phone!
pro: a ultra fast phone in all aspect. it' a pleasure work with it.
great implementation on calendar, phonebook and active desktop. Well thought, well designed, and great construction. really ergonomic with a pleasure case. slide is responsive and without any trouble.
a well done display. editing a message is really confortable and easy. you can write down a poem if you want. Great gps, responsive autorotation, excellent the advanced call manager per installed.
contro: bad 3.2 mpx camera performance (2mpx is better trust me), battery lifetime. Signal is not strong and audio in conversation should be better. Speakers are clear but not loud.
payed 369 euro in italy
vote: 8/9 (best in it's category)
Mido, 14 Apr 2009If any body can tell me if there is E66 Made in FinlandYes but you have to get it from Finlad Lol
I tried to search for the one (they say made in Finland) and never found it. Even on the net and I never found it and my advice if you like this phone but ave no problem with slightly bigger hand set, get the E71.
I'm trying to get an original set in egypt but i can't. I have an advice to know the original one from the serial no. the seventh and the eight digit from the left side, 01 & 00 is original.
Jason, 05 Apr 2009Hi Sonz, Basically no problem...so far so good. Very happy with the handset. the ONLY disap... morefor long lasting battry just change your screen saver and keep your phone in normal screen contrast and resulation. i am sure you will get good battry performance.
help how do i get the gps to work, i jus cnt pick up any gps wat settings must i use
what is the lj mode and haw to reach to it in my mobile because i have problem with my battary life
Ah..one last thing
my friend has E71 & its batery is far more better, stays for a day or 2 longer (4-5) and it is the same price. So if u r into this phone too much, get the e71
1)best look, stylish, shiny and this shine never goes, if u keep the phone in its cover.
2)well built and stands alot of falls
3)slide is good, not to rough and not to woublly
4)had a MAJOR crash with reception (dunno whether it was from the company(Mobinil-Egypt) or from the phone(I've sent it to the service center in kuwait snd they told me there is nothing in it so most probably the stupid service provider,Mobinil).
5)when setting a pcture as a contact picture it is brought as a tiny pic and u fight to peer to know who is calling(prev. owned a SE K750 and the picture comes in full screen)
6)does not support alot of video formats nor audio formats.
7)the battery (and I know it differs from one country of origin to another, mine is chinese and the phone is korean) does not last more than 2.5 to 3 days at max without wi-fi, GPS, some short calls and SMSs (gets on my nerves my last SE K750's batery lasted for 7 to 10 days!!!!!)
>if u want a phone get a sumsung or a SE, if u want a laptop get HTC, if want to kill urself get E66.
Does it compatible with Samsung WEP200 bluetooth headset? I tried it out it could be paired but can noy=t establish the connection.

Hi there, as promised I said I would get back to you guys, got my E66 on Friday, and O My Word ! ! I love this phone. It really, really is divine. The battery seems fine, only had it now for 3 days and it's been great. Got music on, downloaded themes and much more.
Anyone who is thinking of getting the E66 won't be sorry. It's GREAT !
