Overall phone is good with following dis-advantages:
No much ergonomic. Hard to press buttons.
Ear speaker gets warm if you talk a little bit longer.
Finishing of body is shining which needs cleaning all the time.
the review said it has excellent IN-call voice quality. How bout the receiver? Does the mic offer excellent out goung call quality too (providing they had good phone too ^_^)
i,m being picky
I realy don't wanna be bad,but..people of gsmarena,e51 has bPOLYMER-6mt battery,please be a little bit more carreful,otherwise i'l lose my trust in you.Same problem in lot of stores,but i don't expect too much from them..STILL FRIENDS,I HOPE!;)
the phone is exceptional as it is comparable with any high end smart phones with economic price. .
Battery is very good.
The screen though small is easy to recd and type.
The internet is very very good.
Gmail application for mobile works seamelersky in the phone.
But i do gave a few grudger
1-keypad is hard to press ,there was a time when nokia phones used to be easy to operate almost like feather touch ,like 3310 for example .good are those days.
2-surfing web pages cant be saved in memory card . In fact it is true of all nokia phones. . Other wise it is a phone that has all you need.
Am a proud owner of the Nokia e61. And am Lovin It.
but still I think it would be better if I mention the pitfalls that i have noticed.
- Heating during talk time (i used it on a call for 50 mins continuous and it was real hot)
- the phone warms up during charging also
- There is no USB phone charger facility
- Bad media player.
On the positives front
- Wi-Fi is just amazing on this. In combination with an application like fring.com, its an ultimate chat engine.
- Really cheap compared to phones in the market with similar features
- The phone does display the "Now Playing" song in the main screen(unlike mentioned in the review)
Could have built in
- the voice command feature is good. But a feature where the user records his voice and the system opening the corresponding application would have been better. No accent problems.
hi.i had an E50 before and now im interested to have E51,but im afraid.My previous E50 had very bad leyboard quality which was worn and all the keyboard surface get cleaned.Somebody help me please,Does E51 have bad keybosrd quslity?will the keyboard surface get worn after some months???hanging problem is still exsist???accessoray gardly to find????
The is an excellent phone and even after being extremly thin it feels quiet solid in the hand.
I just wanted to highligt a feature which I feel most the reviews are missing. This is the "offline profile" or "flight mode" feature as it is called in a SE. Once you put the device in the offline profile you are cut off from your service provider completely. This is a very useful feature for a buisness oriented phone as you can continue doing some work on the mobile (it supports MSOffice) or listen to music (but not radio) etc.
Overall, this is a really good phone that meets my needs especially the connectivity features.
After looking at the specs on this new handset, I wonder Nokia will be taking on board the disadvantages of the key features for the next generation, E52. Nokia please develop the next generation flag-ship model in the E-Series.
How about GPS for the conservative & businessman on the move?
What about a Bluetooth keyboard as a accessory included as a complete package, that will certainly put hearts racing for the businessman.
Blackberry connectivity & dedicated Skype button?
2 megapixel camera with no autofocus, nor flash
Extremely hard-to-press volume rocker, power button and voice recorder key
Stale multimedia interface
Cannot edit office documents
Doesn't charge when connected via USB
Voice dial works well only with English names
It's a Great phone. But have the following dissadvantages:
1- I has No front Camera for Video Calling.
2- No flash on the back camera
But it's overall good for users which don't use video calling.
Also price is good
Please GSMARENA can you do a comparison between the Nokia E51 and the (don't laugh) BenQ E72 which has the Windows 6 operating system?
Nobody has yet compared Symbian OP with Windows OP systems. Be the first!
These 2 phones are almost clones except for OP system.
Very nice phone to use. Quicker than E50 and it has more comfortable keyboard. But several things are wrong. Side buttons are too hard to push and vibrating alert is weak, you can barrely feel it in your pocket.
I can recommend it to anyone how is looking for a quick and firm phone.
...But will it pair/connect with BMW and similar car kits - unlike ALL the other E series and Symbian Nokia's?!
shot man... hmm now to see if i can wait that long... south africa always gets phones soo late.
There will be E66 coming on Q2 2008, it's a beautiful sliding phone .. gps is standard, built in accelerometer like n95.
which phone is better, E65 or E51? or should i wait 4 the E65's upgrade 1st before comparing?
Forward/rewind works in realplayer on mine, jumps ten seconds at a time.
The only disadvantage in my point of view that this phone has no GPS installed init. I wonder if E52 will have it !!!!
