Excerpt: 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 The OS is outdated.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.
Pros: Very luxury design
Cons: Very high SAR rate, Very laggy and outdated OS, Contdown-timer, Ovi Store, Very uncomfortable volume keys
Summary: Budget smart phone with some kick aXX capabilities. But symbian is slow, screen is small, no front camera for video calls, so you can have them see you, but you can't see them or the opposite. Brwser is a joke. Very small speaker inside, meaning highest volume is pretty low just because of the speaker size by default. Most of the features available in Europe, not really for USA. I believe you can do better for the money.

Excerpt: "I purchased the E51 as a second phone to my iPhone, the E51 looks great and all the reviews seemed good, but i've found that setting up the phone for email, contacts, calendar synchronisation is difficult. The menu keys around the main centre select button are fiddly if you have big hands and fingers and the navigation button is also tricky to use as its around the central main select button which causes mistaken key presses. Its far from simple compared ...
Summary: I have a lot of respect for this phone but would advise potential buyers to consider if it suits their needs before buying. My reason for this is that although it is undoubtedly a powerful business tool, in my opinion leaves a lot to be desired as far as style, ease of use and dare I say, entertainment are concerned. In other words, it's a powerful but seriously dull handset.
Summary: I beleive that I have one of the first (if not *the* first) official E51 phones in the UK. I'm still getting to grips with it and all the functionality that it offers. One thing I can say though - if you have medium to large sized hands/fingers you are going to struggle a lot to use the keys properly. The number pad is fine, but the navigation and short cut keys are small and very difficult to press correctly.
