This is Nokia at its very best. This device is arguably one of the best candybar mobiles ever made, and over 3 years on still holds its own.
I would prefer e71 instead of e51. because games and apps would be more attractive in 320x240. I have found so much stuff on games sites like www.mobilegamesarena.net and many more sites.
i have used many phone but E51 was the best phone......just love it...
i have nokia e51 tim it and my model 0557636 ican't get the new firmare of the 2010 i have the old version 300.34.56
I would not recommend the nokia E51 phone to anyone. In the first twelve months it caused me a lot of stress, my E51 phone had to be returned three times, a different fault each time. Two years on, I still have problems with the screen periodically freezing.
Business. For me this is what it's ALL about. I have this phone. And I really was prepared to like it. Bought it from my friend ( a consumer ). No real problem there really. The price was 1/4th wholesale. Prior to this I had a Blackberry. Again for business.I am sorry,but the BB 8110 although with no wifi is in my opinion better setup up for work. Take predictive typing. Although none are perfect, between being able to more quickly add to the frequent acronym list to enable speeding up whole word typing. ( GREAT!!) Type in 3 letters or whatever and Take frequency of system crashing. Take the ability to have SPEEDY access to programs simultaneously running, AND listening to music. No system slowdowns. Ability to just work with the machine staying the heck out of the way. Consumer grade maybe? Dunno. As far as my own needs I am looking at another BB. Haven't decided which one yet. But for business as I am concerned. I¡ll pass. I do see the need to find a BB that allows mew to have WEFI and SKYPE as well as FRING. These three make for AWESOME browsing with OPERA for Symbian on my E51. But then who else has BB world-wide access to to ohers on the network. COnclusion. If you are a consumer go for it. But Businesses use the BB line for good reason.
this is phone is the best phone i've bought till now..
it has everything.. and it have skype on it.. it's great, i recommend it to all ppl..
Borovo City, 01 Dec 2008PS: E51 is reliable phone. It is very flexible but the Symbian OS is little bit slow. I have ... morehi borovo city how r u im having e51 it good mobile my one no problems im from vukovar but my family leaves in borovo where i grown up i hope u like nokia cheers
just restart any phone that you use every 2-3 days and it will stay a lot faster
Hi i bought an E51 3 months..but the connectivity is really very poor
lot of call drops, WLAN intially was working but later started malfunctioning despite updating the firmware the call quality never improved. you can never make a sucessful call from this device.
I have been using nokia phones for the last 10 years but i am completely dissatisfied with this model...i think NOKIA's low end phones are the best and not the higher model..MORE FEATURES...MULTIPLE PROBLEMS.
since 2000 i had been used nokia 6230 6230i 3200 6500c 6500 slide 6131 e50 and many many more models and i tell you e51 is the great very good phone
E51 is reliable phone. It is very flexible but the Symbian OS is little bit slow. I have used ipaq 514 of HP and replaced it to E51. Difference is not to big except the screen resolution but the batter of HP is better. Anyway everytime I return to use my old facioned 6510 - simply the best and the "smartphone" Benq-Siemens S68 - the relay good phone for good working gentlemans...
The E51 is an excellent phone. Having said that, I must confess that I exchanged that for an N73, a decision which I now feel was a big mistake.
E51 is a good stylish and functional phone. Now that any Tom Dick and Harry has "smart phones" with stylus, the charm in owning one is not that much as it used to be. Similar to laptops - once a priced possession, now practically everyone has it. So I view real style as something subtle, pracitcal - not dirt cheap, not dumbly expensive. E51 is perfectly suits me at this.
The one and only reason why i changed the e51 was because of its high SAR value (1.47)(Specific Absorbtion rate) just below the allowed maximum of 1.6 and 2.0 depending on which country you live. But I have read reviews on the SAR that they write is maximum and not necessarily the actual one (which may be much lower). Now I am inclined to believe that. In any case I use a headset, and phone is more of a data store for me. Further N73 was a big disappointment. All good, except that it fails in its most important USP - the camera clicks with a loud shutter. The video flash is on even if you are shooting the sun. The whole point of having a camera in a phone is to take - an accident picture or the photo of your boss in a meeting:-) N73 believes that it is a camera. e51 does that.Further the camera quality is okay. not noticeably different from the 3 mega of n73.
So Im waiting for the first opportunity to the mobile shop and get the e51 after giving back the n73.
First off all I would like thanks for that who are invade the Nokia E51. Hence it’s the best pone that I am going to use within Nokia phones range. Since 1992 I had use several brand of phones that exit in our world like SAMSUNG,BOOSSH,NEC,SIEMEN,ALCATEL and etc…but very lastly Until I brought E 51 for my hand I have engage my life within N- series. N series is a quit good but…..i can say it’s so lovely to have such e 51 Smartphone in my life. My next look for buy higher version of e series
Thanks for the Nokia
