"SLOW interface- terrible blue tooth"

The good: none really

The bad: Slow interface, staticy blue tooth reception, it's a brick, no WiFi, slow to turn on, soft keys hard to push, easy to accidentally hit the voice key, hard to use text keys with a case on.

Summary: I am so puzzled by all the positive reviews on this phone that I found on different sites. All I can imagine is that the people writing these have never used any other "smart phones" or pda's. This thing is painfully slow. Push the send button that brings up the log of dialed calls and you're gonna wait 3 seconds while it is "accessing data". Going between menus is equally slow. Most of the time I couldn't decide if I had hit the button hard enough because it was doing anything, but usually I would realize that i had hit it hard enough, but it was just dragging. The blue tooth connection is the worst. Most phones I have used will allow you to walk 20 or 30 feet away while talking on blue tooth device. Not this phone. You won't be able to go more than about 5 or 6 feet before static kicks in. Even if I had the phone strapped onto my left and the plantronics headset on my right ear, that was enough to make static. Same headset on my new phone, motorola v365, I can go 30 feet and it's clear as if I were holding the phone.
The combination of the "select" key or "soft" key being hard to press and the slow reaction from the phone drove me nuts. Was the phone just sitting there doing nothing because I didn't use 40 footpounds of pressure on it or is it just the ridiculously slow processor sitting there thinking?
I thought I would like the qwerty keyboard. I don't. I have fat fingers. Give me a regular keypad with iTap any day and I'll race you. If you're not using some form of predictive text.. try it out. Once you get used to it you will like it.
The holes for the ear speakers are finicky. There is a sweet spot where your ear must precisely be or it's hard to hear. Hit that sweet spot and you're golden.. but if not.. good luck hearing.
I love gadgets. So for me to turn this phone back in and get a regular flip phone says alot. I wouldn't choose it if it were free. It just needs to be faster and smaller. I'm not ready to pay $40 per month to use internet on my phone, so I guess I didn't really try out half of the options on it.

Fareed's Nokia E62 review


Fareed's Nokia E62 review
The Nokia E62 is an amazing PDA phone and is targeted for business professionals. With all the new Smartphones being released by HTC, Motorola and Samsung, Nokia had to jump on the bandwagon too. The E62 is one of the latest successors of the Nokia E-series. The E62 runs the Symbian OS 9.1 which has many great features. The E62 is almost the same as the E61 but does not offer features like Wifi. Overall which is better Windows or Symbian OS? Is the E62 a good competitor with the Moto Q , ... more...
