Nokia E52 - Pocket-lint

 

For T9 fans with business use in mind, the E52 might just fit the bill

Build quality, great keypad, battery life

Might just be too small for heavy email use

There is no doubting that the Nokia E52 is a well constructed device. It's design oozes the high quality look that many business folk are looking for. The keyboard is great too, so T9 fans will be well catered for, even if we feel it falls short of the...

Nokia E52

 

The Nokia E52 isn't exactly a headline grabber, but its still got plenty to offer, as Niall finds out.

The E52 doesn't exactly break new ground. It's got a pretty standard candy bar layout and uses a normal mobile phone keypad for text entry, but perhaps that's the point. This is a smartphone for those people who don't really want a smartphone, but need...

Nokia E52 review

 

Though more of a business device, the Nokia E52 smartphone certainly impresses in the looks department. It has an attractive silver finish with an etched rear battery cover, chrome edging and stylish keys. The surface is almost completely immune to...

The Nokia E52 is a strange device when you consider it's an email smartphone that lacks a qwerty keyboard. If you aren't fussed by the (admittedly excellent) numeric keypad, the E52 offers fantastic battery life in a slim and compact design.

Not everyone wants a fancy touchscreen phone and Nokia knows that. The Nokia E51 was a roaring success and its successor promises even more. Find out if we loved the Nokia E52 as much as we loved the E51…

Emailing and messaging seems pretty straightforward. If you use Gmail all you have to do is enter your Gmail user name and password and the phone does the rest for you. The email client also supports other personal and corporate email types such as,...

Stylish design ; Light weight ; Good in-call sound quality ; Great battery life ; Easier messaging

Camera quality is disappointing

Nokia E52 smartphone review

 

Nokia's Eseries has been on the backburner recently with its Nseries lineup taking charge. Now it's time for those business devices to make a comeback with the E52.

The Nokia E52 is more than competent as a business phone, and it's stylish to boot. It’s just the OS and speed that lets it down.

Nokia E52

 

This entry level smartphone from Nokia ticks all the right boxes, plus it has a battery that eats other smartphones\' for lunch.

Excellent battery life, HSDPA, A-GPS, fast processor

No QWERTY keyboard makes emailing a drag, camera so-so

Nokia E52 review

 

We review the Nokia E52, our favourite E series Nokia phone to date

Small and well designed ; Superb battery life ; Good camera ; Wi-Fi, GPS, HSDPA

One piece headset supplied ; Screen is small if you are a multimedia fan

A well featured, pocket friendly handset and in our view the best of the E series
