Phone owned for less than a month

It was perfect for basic PIM, multimedia and... games. Although I don't need for GPS, LED flash, etc. My phone that I can paired with Mozard TS13 thanks to Bluetooth A2DP (and its completely backward compatible). Also, "Active Stand-By" is my favorite!

Phone owned for more than a year

E51 is good phone , but not for multimedia usage. It's perfect for calls and business. The OS is outdated. It has good organizer , but it doesn't have countdown timer. All Symbian phones doesn't have.

Phone owned for

I have one and I highly recommend it, if you want a powerful, excellent quality, business class phone for a good price.

I use its PIM functions, surf on the Internet, check my e-mails (with wifi) everyday, but I often listen to music with it. I can make or receive phone calls(or chat, file transferring etc.) over wifi with IMs apps(skype, MSN).

You know... it has Symbian operating system, so it could play,open or display everything you want, you just have to find the correct applications for it. For example i can't play avi (divx) movies (Divx player, SmartMovie and other players, You have to convert only their resolutions) or you can watch flash clips(youtube, daily motion etc.) in you browser (Skyfire, ...I use the nokia browser too. It's very good too, but it uses only flash lite 2.). Last time I installed DOS with a pc emulator! (JPC) Just for fun...

It has one of the strongest (or simply the strongest) mobile phone CPU on 369mhz with 80 MB RAM (or 96MB?). It beats my first PCs! It's very fast. You can run more programs simultaneous than you ever need.

I can list only two disadvantage:

The buttons on its side are very hard in the beginning, but they getting softer with time if you use them! Now I can switch off the phone with one hand, and the other side-buttons can be pushed more easily.

Very hard to remove the memory card from its place, but I had to remove it only once. And I am not sure if this problem caused by the memory card...

"+1": The built in Real Player can't handle perfectly higher res/quality 3gp videos(the video sometimes jagging). I use other video player.
