Nokia E55 (black, unlocked)

 

Nokia has branched out quite a bit in recent years with its smartphone line of Symbian handsets. The E series in particular has usually been quite business-centric, like the Nokia E71 for example, but the E 50 series tend to be a bit more attractive to...

The Nokia E55 is a superslim smartphone that is both business-centric and multimedia-smart. It has a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm headset jack, Wi-Fi, support for American 3G bands, and Bluetooth. It is surprisingly affordable for an unlocked phone...

The Nokia E55's hybrid keyboard may not be for everyone, and the keys felt a bit squishy as well.

The Nokia E55 will please both business-users and multimedia-minded consumers because of its slim profile, packed features, and wallet-friendly price.

Nokia E55 review: Five by five

 

Sometimes, a phone is nearly perfect, except for that one small thing you want to change. If you felt that way about Nokia E52, the E55 claims to have the answer. Don't get us wrong - the E52 has killer looks and specs. And the E55… well, like we told...

Compact metallic body and extra slim girth (9.9mm) ; Quad-band GSM support ; 3G with HSDPA 10.2 Mbps and HSUPA 2 Mbps ; half-QWERTY keyboard ; 2.4" 16M-color display of QVGA resolution ; Symbian OS, S60 UI with FP2 ; 600 MHz ARM 11 CPU and 128 MB RAM ;...

Disappointing camera features and performance ; Video recording maxes out at VGA@15fps ; No DivX or XviD support (can be installed, possibly requiring a purchase) ; No TV-out functionality ; Keyboard takes some time getting used to (not too long though)

If QWERTY keyboards are for heavy texters where does half-QWERTY fit? Some would say it's the same target but different goal. You know, like heavy texting is a bad habit and half-QWERTY is the therapy. Now, now, no need to be too smart. But does it...

Today we introduce the Nokia E55 to you. It´s the manufacturer´s first attempt at a “compact QWERTY keyboard” that consists of 20 buttons...

This Nokia E55 review looks at the physical design of the Nokia E55 and highlights its use of the half QWERTY keyboard in addition to other physical features this Nokia E-Series phone comes with.

Taking a walk through the Nokia E55 you do realize that this is a great phone with its own personality. This phone has great features and performance and it meets the expectations for a phone within its price range. There is a welcome gesture in the...

Review: Review of Nokia's sleek E55 business smartphone

 

The Nokia E55 smartphone is designed for business. It sports a sleek body, a 20-key QWERTY keypad, and even a real 3.5mm headphone port for those down moments. Russell gives it a try in this in-depth review.

The Nokia E55 has a pretty decent speakerphone and can pick up voices well at a distance. Unfortunately, the speakerphone volume didn't seem very loud, despite the loudspeaker's decent volume when playing music. Speaker independent voice dialing is...

The most obvious difference between this phone and other E-Series messengers is the "compact QWERTY" keyboard which is somewhat similar to the one found on the popular BlackBerry Pearl.

Nokia E55 Review - Compact QWERTY Smartphone

 

Nokia E55 is one of the last smartphones launched on the market before the Finnish giant renamed its four handset lines to Nokia Cseries, Xseries, Eseries and Nseries. Even though the latter two have been around for a while, each new device within the...

The E55 breathes style and is perfectly fit for the business market. Its compact and fully metallic case turns it in the perfect premium smartphone

If you're not bothered by the fact that this a Symbian phone and that it's overpriced, then the E55 has little drawbacks

Nokia E55 may be one of the best Eseries smartphones without a full-QWERTY keyboard, but it belongs to an era long gone. Symbian^1 is an obsolete platform that cannot rival with the newest operating systems launched on the market. Also, its high price...

Nokia E55 review

 

Nokia's E55 is the thinnest and lightest phone here, but its large screen and semi-QWERTY keyboard also make it one of the tallest.

Nokia's decent hardware is let down by its choice of operating system, which is outdated and lacks developer support.

Expert review by:

Stuff magazine

 

The E55 takes the E52's conventional smartphone chassis and adds a half-QWERTY keyboard. But is it too daring for the business phone traditionalist?

Another great addition to the Eseries flock that marries a pocket-friendly form with QWERTY-esque usability

Recommended!

The Nokia E55 may have a non-standard, half QWERTY keyboard, but Niall thinks you shouldn't let that put you off.

Nokia's phones have been a bit hit and miss of late, but it has to be said that the E-series has remained consistently strong throughout this period and the E55 continues this trend. Its combination of large screen, very usable keyboard and impressive...
