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.

Nokia's Eseries has always been the Finnish manufacturer's business-oriented range, and the E52 is no different, packed to the rafters with impressive features.

However, the E52 comes with a difference: it's super slim, light and looks as smart as it actually is.

Nokia certainly hasn't scrimped on the design of the E52. The pocketable device measures 49x9.9x116mm, and weighs a paltry 98g, including the full metal backplate.

The screen is about average for a candybar smartphone at 2.4-inches (240x320 pixels). It seems a lot smaller than the BlackBerry Bold's, which is only 0.2-inches larger, however the E52's is still clear for basic operations.

The in-built accelerometer changes the orientation of the display when you turn the E52 onto its side. This is a very useful addition for browsing, unless you actually want to type a search term or URL but not at all easy to use for more complicated functions such as typing an email because the keys are the wrong way round.

Seen the light

An ambient light sensor is positioned on the top left side, just above the screen. The purpose of this feature is to sense the light wherever you are and adjust the screen brightness accordingly. Although we didn't see any spectacular change, it did make the screen slightly easier to see in bright conditions.

One feature of the Nokia E52 is its dual screen functionality. You can switch between fully customisable personal and business homescreens to access your most used applications as quickly as possible. It's easy enough to toggle between the two, simply by clicking on the icon situated on both homescreens, but it's also easy to forget you've switched between the two.
