Nokia E55 review

 

Nokia's decent hardware is let down by its choice of operating system, which is outdated and lacks developer support.

Nokia E55 review

 

The E55 takes the E52's conventional smartphone chassis and adds a half-QWERTY keyboard. But is it too daring for the business phone traditionalist?

Another great addition to the Eseries flock that marries a pocket-friendly form with QWERTY-esque usability

Nokia E55

 

The Nokia E55 may have a non-standard, half QWERTY keyboard, but Niall thinks you shouldn't let that put you off.

Nokia's phones have been a bit hit and miss of late, but it has to be said that the E-series has remained consistently strong throughout this period and the E55 continues this trend. Its combination of large screen, very usable keyboard and impressive...

Nokia E55 Review

 

As marketed, this phone is designed for messaging. I would definitely agree. It's simple to use and navigate through. Of course, if texting/messaging is something you do a lot the compact QWERTY keyboard will definitely be a big decision maker if...

Camera quality is disappointing ; The compact QWERTY keyboard take a lot of getting used to

Nokia E55

 

Hardly sexy and the screen is small, but this thin and light phone is impressively powerful for the price.

But if physical size is more important to you than screen breadth, Nokia's latest business handset should be top of your list. It's packed with features, it's small and light, and impressively, it's cheap and available on some good deals straight away.
