i just got this phone a week back. i replaced my n95 with e66. The only problem i find is the battery life. i just charge the phone in morning and it was way down by evening. No worries, by the end of the day you forget about the battery life out of the excitement of other cool functions and looks:)
I have this phone for app.1 month now. It is fantastic! Bigest critics of E66 are people who can not afford it! That is the fact! Fact is also, that nowadays phones which purpose is for business, are used (by children and subjects who as a matter of fact does not need phone like E66 is) for play and fun. Those two kind of people are biggest critics, because they expect almost PS3 when buying phone like E66. If you want that, buy PS3 and you will be able to trifle!
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2008i am planning to buy one, is it a good one??maybe better buy SE P1 , cheaper but better photo result, better applications, better office work..... touch screen....... I cannot find anything 'better' in Nokia E66 ?????!?!? right ?

Gonzi, 28 Oct 2008DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE... I REGRET I BOUGHT
1. Very very bad battery life. hardly goes 2 days... moredude, your fone must be faulty or maybe from China.. I have used the fone for over a month now and the only point I agree with you is battery life.. with which I wasn't expecting 5 days like a Nokia 1200..
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE... I REGRET I BOUGHT
1. Very very bad battery life. hardly goes 2 days. If you use frequent 1 day!!! If you use Wlan 1o hours. If you use GSP 5 hours!!!
2. Bad slide cover. Not running smoothly. You have to close it with your own action. (it is not sliding smoothly.)
3. Bad workmanship. Cover (lcd side) is not staying tight when it is open. When you click buttons cover it is not steady, it is dancing!!!
4. Battery cover is not fitting well. Opening and closing it is a pain and seems if you often open and close it is going to spoil.
5. Sim card slot is stupid. You put the sim card... but it is a pain to take it out.
6. Sound up/down keys are so hard that you have to press very powerfully.
7. But photo key is so light that you touch it and it takes photo... before you are not ready.
8. USB connection slot has a little cover.. but it is not fitting to its place (playing, not tight)
9. GPS is a shame twice. It's fix time is more then 10 minutes if you are steady. If moving, may take a life to get a fix. Secondly, only nokia map working. For ex. you can not use Tomtom. Because it is not possible to use internal GPS.
10. Photo quality is average... but if you thing 3.2 pixel camera, it is bwlow average.
Only good thing with this phone is Symbian OS which is doing well.
DO NOT BUY THAT PHONE...

This phone has 2 major and unfortunately serious problems. 1) problem with slider 2) poor battery. In my opinion, Nokia did a mistake, thinking that smartphone users ( in our case - E66 users) will not care a lot about battery life. Actually people do care... And poor battery performance one of the main reasons why some people don't wanna buy E66. Another big mistake was construction of slider mechanism, which easily gets affected by magnet locks etc of you clothe or belt case. So, before purchase think twice if you can live with this serious problems.
