Could someone please help me with a problem? I can't decide what to buy, Nokia E71 or Nokia E52? Nokia E71 is nice, qwerty keyboard, nice designd but no so smart as E52. And I heard E71 has problems with battery life. Please let me now what you think. Thank you.
E52 is a real let down - I mage a bunch of engineers who rely on the Mail for exchnage client while on the road. We all had the E51 and those of us who have moved to the E52 regret it - BIG TIME. The phone hangs, tells callers I am unavailable, MFE is rubish on this phone - NOKIA - bring back the E51!!!
The piece I have as a corporate phone is hanging in random cases.
It is completely unreliable. Sometimes it even does not restart when I take the battery off. It has to be taken for an hour to have the phone boot.
I am really dissatisfied.
Beware the e52 is not really a business phone it's flakey build and software see to that. A real pity because nokia almost had the right idea.
The mkt needs a candy bar business phone to rival iphone and blackberry a 2010 business nokia. What is going on with Nokia design team they really have lost the plot.
It's missing a standard nokia charging connection !! You can only charge it via micro usb!
For the little extra cost a business phone should realy have the standard nokia charging connection.
Durability is NOT good!
Fragile hand set not as good as e51 e71 etc
shafiullah (fine jed, 06 Mar 2010i like to buy nokia E52 for voip call.i had a E51.it was good but battery life problem.avoid the e52 it has rubbish build quality
i like to buy nokia E52 for voip call.i had a E51.it was good but battery life problem.
The E52 is terrible not upto usual Nokia build quality don't buy it if you expect a solid well built phone. I had mine for 2 days and couldn't stand the poor build and rubber buttons. Why Nokia didn't just make it in the same materials as the e51 and e71 I can't understand nokia are loosing sales to blackberry and this phone will only drive more of us to blackberry for business phones. 1 out of 10 .!
glen_b, 26 Nov 2009Recently my beloved Nokia 6267 got stolen hier in Zürich (seems to be a rash of that of late).... moreHi,
My phone may be a different version, I have no idea how to check it...
1. It highlights/underscores all the numbers and www/email in the SMSs, so you can call them, add to contacts (there is something called "Automatic find On/Off", i guess this is the function you need.
When I'm taking pictures, I'm not necessary sending them to someone, I may just want to keep them for myself.
I can delete all the SMSs in my Inbox, by selecting Options->Mark/Unmark->Mark All, then Delete->Ok
About the other mentioned problems, I didn't check all of them, the only thing I don't like in the phone so far is the cheap build quality, I've been using E50 for 3 years, and this one is just too plastic compared to the E50.
So far I didn't had any issues with freezing/dropping calls, it's Finland made, bought in Bulgaria.
P.S. Something very important, is there a way to use the phone as a flashlight? :)
I am a nokia guy...been through the whole gamut from 6210 to E90. The E52 is a big disappointment. Firstly, i had to battle with the charging system which was eventually settled after battling with my local nokia care centre ( they finally changed the machine allegedly), Now i get frustrated trying to get to a number on my address book...i get the annoying message !!!! building cache...
enough is enough ..nokia wake up .just look at your competitors in this segment - Iphone , HTC ect
glen_b, 26 Nov 2009Recently my beloved Nokia 6267 got stolen hier in Zürich (seems to be a rash of that of late).... moreThanks for your detailed review. I used a 6300 and changed to a E52.
I completely agree with your comments. The older 6300 was way superior and much more user friendly and overall a much better phone. Tks again
Hi i have nokia E52 it is a good,fast,nice and speed............i like it
I lost my Nokia E51, a phone which I absolutely loved. I just ordered the Nokia E52.
I was a fan of the subtle styling and the compact nature of the earlier phone. Hopefully the Nokia E52 lives up to its predecessor. Thank you for the rview.
Bought it about one month ago in Switzerland (E52-1 made in Finland) and it works like a charm, except some minor software issues.
Athan, 21 Aug 2009Overrated full-plastic garbage. Awful build quality, pathetic camera, washed-out screen col... moreYou must have bought a counterfeit Asian version or another phone and are confused because the E52 is metal. I have held it in a few shops in Europe and every time it was solid and made from metal not plastic.
had it 2 hrs, now on charge,,,it does seem a bit unstable after updating to latest version 22 after v20 wen it arrived..TRIED my own themes and it just kept jumping back to main screen when tried to open any app?? resolved by restarting and getting rid of my themes,,tried mp3 thru my senheiser cx300 and its very,very clear with detail i have not heard before in mp3 coming thru..Got to get themes sorted as the ones that come with it are very light and weak in colour..
first of all got to say not a buisness user got the phone for making calls txt'ing and the battery life got to say excellent 1st calling can hear other person very loud and clear txt'ing nice key pad even for a person with big hands 3rd battery charged once been on over a week and it is still half full and yes do use it a lot got to say nearly did not buy this phone after experiance with 5310 complete rubbish got a sony c510 could not hear on that so went back took a chance on this what a gem 10+ i am on 02 in ireland perfect highly recommend phone
Recently my beloved Nokia 6267 got stolen hier in Zürich (seems to be a rash of that of late). I had really gotten used to that unit's ease of use, and anyone who's been through this knows you're suddenly confronted with all these decisions: do I move 'up'? 'Down' (to something simpler..), to an iPhone, or one of its clones?
Well in order to try to approach the 6267's great combination of biggish screen and large keys (i.e. not designed for a 12 year old girl's fingers), I got an E52.
This phone is the worst piece of over-engineered, user-hostile piece of junk I ever saw from Nokia. Compared to the 6267 (or the 6131, 6310i. or venerable 6150...!), it's hard to believe it's a Nokia. First off, the most obvious and clear advantages of a folding phone:
1. you can get a big screen and a big keyboard into a compact package
2. both screen and keyboard are protected, by default (see below re: 'unlocking')
3. when open, earpiece and microphone are comfortably near ear & mouth, respectively..
I should say at the outset that I worked in mobile engineering (GSM & 3G) for 7 years, in engineering, but also that I see a mobile telephone basically as a tool for making calls and texting, it's the mobility that attracts me, not the bells and whistles.
Most of my gripes with the E52 have to do with texting (SMS).
A BASIC, OBVIOUS FUNCTION: you can't 'use detail' on an incoming SMS, i.e. someone texts you a telephone number, you have to WRITE IT DOWN, you can't just 'use number' and call it, store it, etc. THIS IS ASTONISHINGLY STUPID. When you receive and sms, the stupid phone asks how you want to reply, instead of just defaulting to sms (the obvious and logical choice). WHY WOULD I WANT TO RESPOND BY EMAIL TO AN SMS? Maybe there's a reason, I don't know it, but the default should be...sms. DUMB. You can't delete all sms in the Inbox, you have to step through menus to mark them and then delete them. DUMB - the 6267 was super easy in that regard. While typing, you want to insert an emoticon (smiley face): THE E52 DOESN'T HAVE THEM. 'Business phone'? well, I send lots of 'business' sms, sometimes a smiley face is useful to tailor a message or adjust the tone. Not to mention private use. Not having them is a needless step backwards. DUMB. Which leads to the next issue: symbols. If I want a smiley face now,
I have to type it :-) trouble is, the symbol list - sort of a 'symbol cache' - on the E52 is DYNAMIC. So (for a simple example) if I use a divisor sign, equals, ampersand, +, *, @ and a few other symbols, the :-) are pushed off the 'cache list' and I have to - you guessed it - tap more keys to get find them & get them back. DUMB - the symbol function was great on the 6267... You trigger the camera, and there are all these %&+§$ KEYSTROKES to DO THE OBVIOUS: TAKE AND SEND THE PIC
TO SOMEONE. The reason to have a camera in a mobile phone is to make it EASY to send someone a photo of something RIGHT NOW...I don't want a Windows experience when I try to do that. Or better: a DOS experience (for those old enough to remember..) I could taylor the 6267 'top left button' to list all kinds of functions I use every day (in box, missed calls, alarm, etc) In the highly Advanced Sophisticated E52, I have to step thru stupid complex menus to find this stuff, and there's no means to set up a pre-set list similar to the 6267. And along with all this, it seems like all I do is unlock the g#dd#m keypad - the stupid thing shuts
off in SECONDS. This was something else that was great with the 6267 - you flip it open and OPEN that sms! Invariably the stupid E52 has reverted to the menu list and to answer an incoming sms, you have to 1) press the upper left-hand key, 2) press the upper right-hand key (to get the keyboard unlocked...), 3) press the sms icon (if you're lucky enough that the phone has reverted to that, else you have to tap around to it) 4) tap down to the Inbox icon... In this time I would have already been answering the sms, or had already sent it, with the 6267! The list goes on and on, but I want to cap it off with one of the most irritating of all: the beloved old
standard Nokia ring tone has been replaced by a sappy 'mood music' version, a fitting theme indeed. Meanwhile, try to find a used 6267. Talking to people in phone stores confirmed my suspicions: the 6267 was well-liked and sold out immediately after production ceased.
WAKE UP, NOKIA!
