A gorgeous outlook and high-tech functions

from GSMArena

Were you looking forward to purchasing the new Nokia E65 as soon as it appeared in the Internet stores? Poor you … The phone doesn’t differ much from its forerunners, and especially from Nokia E60. It is not even worth mentioning that newly implemented applications can easily be insalled in older Nokia models thanks to Nokia’s liberal approach. All in all, our expectations of more innovations have not been met. What might make Nokia E65 a successfully selling phone is its solid construction, elegant design and the slider form factor...

Were you looking forward to purchasing the new Nokia E65 as soon as it appeared in the Internet stores? Poor you … The phone doesn’t differ much from its forerunners, and especially from Nokia E60. It is not even worth mentioning that newly implemented applications can easily be insalled in older Nokia models thanks to Nokia’s liberal approach. All in all, our expectations of more innovations have not been met. What might make Nokia E65 a successfully selling phone is its solid construction, elegant design and the slider form factor.

In any case one thing is for sure: by choosing Nokia E65 you get a high-class elegant office helper together with all pros and cons of a Nokia – Symbian cooperation.

The E65 is brilliantly built and has specifications that blow most other slider phones away. It is unfortunate that the keypad sometimes fails to register key presses. Otherwise, the E65 would have been perfect. All the connectivity options, push email capabilities, and a great browser in a small and slim good looking slider makes the entire package too sweet to resist. This is one phone that I have no hesitation in giving a Highly Recommended rating. If slider phones are your thing, you can't go wrong with the E65. You will just have to get used to its keypad, but this is a minor annoyance when compared to all its positives.

Strengths: Wifi access, symbian phone, can use skype Weaknesses: no radio, no flash on the camera The phone is good, I have no complaints and made the right choice with this one. Pros - Wifi access, symbian phone, can use skype and other voip, thin, light weight, solid phone with good slide mechanism Cons - no radio, no flash on the camera. Battery life is OK but not exceptional but no real complaints, complex to understand the phone features initially, only one camera so no video calls (do many people use this feature though') Less

Pro: it can be used as a business as well as an entertainment phone Con: theres nothing special to worry about the cons i love this phone and i am happy to own it. this phone meets almost all the requirements from style to work. theres no need of a personal secretary or pa when you own this phone . the only limitations of this phone is the absence of fm radio and limited memory of upto 2gb only. though the camera is blurred (when zoomed to the maximum) the picture outcome is great(better than what you expect) .hence i would like to alert the customers that not to derate the phone by its blurred camera but pictures are crystal clear and real(try this and then you will realise it ,things get better when tried practically rather than hearing theories).this phone concentrates all parts and not anything (like camera or music etc..) specifically. it meets all expectations and results. its great to own it . it is not just a phone, it is something greater and better than it, it is a mini computer.computers can never get smaller or stylish than this e65.i request nokia to release a new episode of this phone with fm radio and more memory. it is now or never please think before you refuse to buy this phone. this phone also keeps you cool at home or with friends etc with its music and much more exploring features.my friends and relatives are jealous about my phone though they own much costly phones than this.hence i recommend all to buy this "mini computer".

Pro: Slim body, great screen, fantastic for a slider Con: Expensive, camera is only 2MP, no flash, speakers are not that loud I've had no problems with my E65 since I bought it 8 months ago, and I must say that it remains a stylish phone to this date. The features are functional, especially the WiFi connectivity which allows you to be online with MSN Skype and other IM applications. Although I have not been using the blackberry function [which was a little puzzling to wrap your head around]and our network in HK does not support PTT, the phone it still quite handy and it serves its purpose, giving you a classy looking phone with great basic features plus a little something extra. It's just too bad that the camera is a little outdated, and it doesn't have as good media functions as the N series. The market price is also still a little too high - even after 8 months. Less

Pro: WiFi internet, nice screen, very stylish - "unique" Con: Battery life, small font, fragile, low speaker volume A super business phone, its got all the business tools and support you need from a super business phone. Real sexy...probably the most stylish phone out there. Also, the Wifi Internet is a great feature. Good memory size, and other excellent features including the installed software/programs such as the message reader. Super easy to navigate. However, as you would expect from a high-end business phone such as the E65, it is somehow a fragile phone. You really got to take good care of it so that the leather-like material on it does not scratch away. Also, you should becareful not to drop it too much or you might damage the ear speaker for example. Less

No improvements there. -Camera is lame compared with it's peers. -Daily charging needed. Less
