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 customisable soft keys and call answer/end are also a little hit and miss they're recessed against the shortcut keys and if you have anything more than dainty pianist's digits, you could easily launch an app rather than answer a call.

However, the numeric keyboard, is responsive and the buttons give a satisfying click to confirm when you've pressed a button, although it's a little out of the ordinary to have a T9 keyboard rather than QWERTY on a smartphone at the moment almost every device has either a virtual or hardware QWERTY keyboard. However, keys are made harder to use because the lighter grey of the number markings struggles to stand out against the darker silver background.

The email app is a little antiquated, which is something you'd expect from an OS that hasn't seen a large update like rival smartphone operating systems out there. It's a little disappointing, but fine if you just need a business phone to make and take calls, check the odd email and view documents bearing in mind that for the latter, you'll have to zoom in to see the text clearly.

A 1GB card is provided but the phone supports cards up to 16GB in size to bolster that pretty paltry 60MB of internal memory.
