The E50 is the cheapest S60 3rd Edition smartphone available at Rs. 13,000. With a very sedate design, a great screen and a good set of software and connectivity options, the phone won me over, but the average camera and battery performance keeps me...

Nokia E50 Review


The Nokia E50 is an O.K. business phone with good business features, but has a couple flaws that owners of the phone have been able to bring to light lately.
