Best buy: Nokia E65 from Amazon Marketplace UK (£99.99)

 

The Nokia E65 is a 3G smartphone aimed squarely at business users. It's the nicest looking of the E series, looking remarkably like a Samsung D500, but with a different choice of colours, so no-one could mistake the two. Unlike the Samsung, it's very much targeted at the serious business user. This is a Symbian phone, so if offers a lot of scope for power users to customise the phone and install their own applications. The calendar is very flexible, and contacts are easy to manage. There's support for email with attachments, and fast access to data via EDGE or 3G networks. On the negative side, Symbian can sometimes be slow and the phone may crash or freeze from time to time.

There are some great features in this phone, but others that aren't so hot, so you'll need to make sure it's right for you. Starting with the exterior, we've mentioned the attractive design of the phone already. It's a very nicely-sized phone and not too heavy, although we'd have preferred a slightly larger keypad - what is it with Nokia and small keypads? The slide design is practical as well as smart, as it enables a large screen to be fitted to a compact phone. The screen is one of the nicest features of the E65, using Nokia's latest 16 million colour technology and a high resolution. However, the E65 does use very small fonts, so be wary of this if your close-up eyesight isn't what it used to be! On the other hand, it enables you to view a lot of information on the screen at one time.

One of the selling points of the E65 is the fact that it can make Voice over IP (VoIP) calls using the integrated wireless LAN connection. It's virtually unbeatable when it comes to connectivity in fact. Not only does it have WLAN (both 802.11b & 802.11g are supported), but it offers Bluetooth, USB and infrared too, so you ought to be able to connect it to just about anything. Onboard memory is reasonably generous at 50 Mbytes, with a slot for a MicroSD memory card too.

Although the phone features a camera and a music player, these are bonus features, not core to the phone. One obvious ommission is that there's no capability for making video calls, as there's no secondary video camera.

The battery life of the E65 is less than average, which is not surprising considering that this is a 3G phone with WLAN and Bluetooth. You can switch off any of these features to conserve battery life if they're not needed.

Overall, the E65 is a reasonable implementation of a 3G Symbian phone, although it is dogged by reliability problems and slow menus. If you don't have a need for all the high-end features, you'd be better off with something simpler, like the Nokia 6300 or Nokia 6500 Slide.


Nokia E65 features include:

  • Series 60 3rd Edition Symbian operating system
  • One Touch keys for direct access to contacts, mute/unmute, and conference calling
  • Java & Symbian applications

I am using this phone since 1 year and 2 months. And the most points are asunder. Camera very slow i have to wait and hold the mobile at a same position for 5 or 6 seconds after clicking the capture button or the picture to be taken will be blured or if moved other frame will be taken than intended. Means software response time after clicking the capture button is more. starting 6 months failure of phone applications like autm restart without any reason hang up while call sudden shut down without any reason. Etc. But i have used a lot of internet on my laptop with using it as a modem. Very good speed of net. i connect it via USB CABLE with laptop Or pc. If connected via blue tooth very low speed. After latest software update in august09 which is nokias latest software update the phone has become more stable. No more restart now with out reason. also the update was done using net via e 65 using as a modem. plate form security in latest software is so high not hacked by any one so far. May be hacked but i have not heard. Very good music effects over ear phone very good phone if used with extra applications like x plore Smart movie dictionary nokia should give this types of application free with phone. Advance call manager has come free with phone and a nice application. Over all a slow operating phone while opening messages and application . But very good phone also and at a reasonable price. i have no need of using anti virus after update of software. Also previousaly i have not used. When viewed price matter very good also 3g enabled. Who will give all this at a cheap price. 2 MP CAMERA also giving high good pictures in day light. Night camera not good. nokia Should give flash. Over all i have got all return what i invested. Care center service also good. Replaced my screen within a 30 minut as a dark spot was there in screen in corner during warrenty period. Very good return against investment. Should by with latest software by nokia. Looks nice and uniq.some times Some body asked is that china phone? .!!!!! As china phones are also looks smarts in appear ance. Thank you all for reading this JAY GURUDEV.

I've had this phone for about 18 months. In that time it has been in for repairs 7 times and I've had three new handsets - as far as I can work out, the phone has been out of my possession for about 3 months of the 18. Faults - Spontaneous shut-downs - Loss of network connectivity - loud earpiece whine when keypad is lit - keys losing their detent click - disconnection of calls when opened. Also seems to be insensitive to signals as well as can't get reception where my very elderly and el-cheapo Alcatel works just fine. Just dreadful.

Terrible, Terrible, Terrible. Terrible camera quality- it makes the pictures look horribly scratchy and fuzzy. ABYSMAL battery life- with my old Sony Ericsson W810i I only had to charge it once a week or so (and even though it was like 2mp it still took better pictures than this)with this, even without long calls I have to charge it frequently. The camera has no flash and always makes that annoying sound which you cannot get rid of. You can't really adjust the brightness/contrast seetings, it has really weird and useless rigid camera settings. You can't see the wallpaper background properly because of all the rubbish blocking it. The worst phone I've ever had.

While this phone is full of many functions it falls short in one very imprtant aspect. It holds its self together about as well as a peach in a blender. Not only did my screen break in the first three days of owning it but it has broken again a few times over the two year period i ahve owned it. The simcard holder cant hold the sim card still so the card keeps moving and the phone keeps going off line. Also my Battery kept moving so the phone would turn of in the middle of a conversation. The plastic black coverin on the phone keeps peeling off making it look like it has lepracy. The Key pad light has stopped working so texting in the dark is a game of hit and miss. The buttons on the side of the side of the phone stopped working!

This is a feature packed phone with appalling performance.

Now have an E71 and it's fantastic

Stop questionin and complainin about it, as it is a nice phone. all your problems can solve it by upgradin the firmware (check it on the nokia website/ nokia center) you should always check if theres an available update for the firmware to fix the bugs and faults of your phones. i onwed this phone for almost 2 years now and i never experience any problem. i belive it is somethin to do about the user not the phone. you must know how to take good care of it. regardin the camera issue, you shouldnt ask it for a good capture as this phone is not a Kiddie stuff, if you want good camera then go to Kodak or Canon. this phoen has no secondary phone, but still use for videocalling. No radio or fm tuner, but who cares, you're not always listenin to radio, dont yah? the screen display of this phone is almost the same with the n-series phone like N82 ans N95 16 Million colours, wow! and the 3G its super class 32 very fast. wlan edge and hsdpa conectivity faster than ever ... it reads adobe files and other pdf files, can even connect to voip if you have the plan like the vonage. and the ofcourse you can transfer anyfiles tru bluetooth, infrared, or by usb cable. the processor is good faster like n95. and the memory both internal and microsd card slot is really spacious and genrous memory. GPS, well its not on package but you can download an symbian aplication that reads maps and directions, cool. batery like is still doin great despite of the multi task and it's been almost two years and i never replaced the batery pack. very powerful phone, i just wish nokia would releas the i version of this like Nokia E65i LOL!

Initially i was dissapointed with the phone, but after using it for a couple of weeks I could not fault this phone at all! The battery life may not be outstanding but it's reasonable, there are no games to start with, and baring in mind this is a business phone, you can download them. I had the phone for 20 months on orange and had no problems, in fact the only reason I gave it up is because I wanted the iphone. I would go back to the E65 anytime! I didn't use this phone for business purposes, and so as an everyday phone this is great.

Mine was just over the 1 yr warranty, the other lucky people were in it and got a replacement. The dealer new of this problem and siad it couldn't be fixed? If it was a car there would have been a re-call. Keypad backlight doesn't work either. Almost a good phone if it kept working.

I have used this phone extensively for the last 16 month. It looks and feels good. But it has a very buggy software - switches off automatically (not uncommon). It has happened a few times that the person at the other end could not hear what I said, but after re-starting the phone, it works fine. Low battery life and WLAN is useless. No recurring alarm.

Don't buy this phone. I got this phone on contract in August 2007, as it is now November 2008, i have had my phone turned off for the past week and a half (end of October 2008). It is rubbish, and screwed. The phone turns on and off, and only now accepts calls if i have the slide down. None of the buttons on the main part of the phone work, something serious has gone wrong. And for this supposedly good, but very expensive phone, it is cheaply and badly made. When i first got it, it was okay, then it started crashing, then sometimes wouldnt let me text, and now everything is broken. I would never recommend this phone.

Good phone that I've used for a good 6 months. Nice form factor, quite thin and light, yet nice screen and a long list of useful features. No problem whatsoever with the handset that I got "refurbished" from 3 uk. Although 3g, it's not hsdpa so not very quick but ok for mobile web pages. opera mini is a must on this phone. Camera is poor and the video recording is better left unused. Agreed, it's a business phone but this is the worst video recording have had on a phone for quite a while. In short, an good functional and small smartphone, but really unexciting.

I purchased the Nokia E65 made in China and there are problems with periodic locking up of the phone's four function keys for group calls, own key, contacts, and phone muting, the phone needs to be turned off and back on to unlock the four function keys. The phone was returned to Nokia for repair and after several attempts to fix the problem they finally tried replacing the mother board, that also failed to correct the problem. I purchase a second E65 for a back-up phone but this one was made in Finland and there are no problems with the four function keys. The Nokia E65 made in Finland works perfectly. My only complaint for the E65 is the absence of a flash for the camera. Otherwise I really love the phone for my personal and business use.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING: PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING: PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING: Having purchased an E65 a year ago as a business phone in Australia I found the battery life when using 3g and activesync to be around 2-3 hours without making a single call. Futher to the dissapointment of purchasing a 3g business phone (for email and high speed internet access on the road), it was a rude awakening when visiting the Nokia care(less) centre. I was made to wait near to an hour to retrieve my phone each time, and the problem was never fixed. In fact only on the phone's 4th visit did they declare there was a problem, they then insisted the phone was out of warranty and not their problem any longer. Having waitied weeks for unreturned phone calls and the Nokia care centre nearly throwing my phone in the bin, I contacted Virgin Mobile, my carrier to discuss my disappointment, they immediatly picked up the issue by replacing the battery at their own expense and taking the matter up with Nokia directly - bravo! Bottom line is not because of their product, but becaus e of their complete disregard for customer service I will never purchase another Nokia again, shame on you Nokia for pushing around the little guy. PS I will remain with Virgin Mobile for as long as they maitain this level of service. Thanks for reading.

Hate this phone.. I must have gotten one of the "reconditioned" phones from Three Ireland. There are so many things about this phone that annoy me.. From day of purchase, the back light on the key pad has been not worked. I have contacted Three about this twice and they are ignoring the problem. So basically, I cannot text in the dark. There is no FM radio.. There were no headphones supplied with the phone. The slider function is horrible, there is no ridge to grip when sliding the phone open. The phone feels awkward and the metal on the key pad is nasty.. This is the LAST Nokia phone I will be buying for the foreseeable future. Since I moved to the the Three network, I have purchased Nokia. All of there were Symbian "smart" phones. This OS is absolute trash.. It's far too slow. The phone doesn't know wheter it's coming or going half time time. I like a phone to respond immediately when I press a button, not a few seconds later. I will probably end up throwing this phone against the wall.

Perhaps you should write down the things you want from a phone before purchasing this model. It is not a digital camera. It is not a video phone. These things are quite clear in the specifications listed by nokia. I have had no problems with my phone after many months of use, no lockups and fully functionality. Only activate bluetooth and WIFI when you need it, Check your task manager (press and hold the menu button in standby) to ensure all apps you are finished with have closed, and make sure you treat your battery properly and this phone will last four days with reasonable useage. Functions are great, text/mail/voip/quick internet searches (again, this is not a laptop!!!) and the user interface has been smooth and intuitive. I have owned 9 different nokias prior to this one and to be honest this is better than a few of them and on par with the rest, N73 included! Make sure it is what you want and then buy it :)

i've had the E65 for a few months now about its really cute i love the looks the size, the colour, its really flashy when u push it up, its beautiful remind me of myself, other than that the phone takes a while to send another message when texing that pisses me off first of all i still loves it very much cuz it fell a few time and havent even gotten a scratch on it my phone is sill in good shape and looks brand new, even my friends love it a lot, plus i've got offers to buy it, my biggest problem with the phone is the f.m radio that it dosent have i'm really mad about that honestly the camera is not bad in the day but at night its a waste of time trying to use the camera it wont work all u see is blackness, so the worst thing bout the phone is the camera at night and the fm radio is dosent have, but its flashy to walk around with.

I've had my E65 for 15 months now, and all in all I think it's a very good phone. The user interface is straighforward and very intuitive, it's easy to customise the set-up to suit your own preferences, and I've found the battery life pretty good given the technology it's carying. My only gripe is that I think the volume when transmitting via bluetooth to a headset or in-car unit isn't strong enough.

i have had this phone since September 2007, at first i as very impressed, my boyfriend has the n95 and even he was jealous but then i discovered that there is no real snooze function on the alarm. it offers a snooze option but you only get 5 minutes and this cannot be altered. the alarm also has to be set everyday. the small fonts were a problem and the fact that the wall paper is not full screen. other than this there were no other problems. then recently it has begun to throw a wobbler and switch itself off, it decides not to let me make calls and tells there is a connection error and randomly will not let me open text messages saying that there is not enough memory and i need to close all other applications even though there is no other application open.... i find the contacts search really annoyin, i think it is soomething to do with surnames and first names, when i search for my brothers number typing in Lew it provides about ten other names before my brothers and it is effort to have to scroll down to the correct name even though it is the most relevant to hte search. i have enjoyed havin this fone but come july when i am eligible for an upgrade i will not be sad to say goodbye

Although it is loaded with features, it doesn't perform reliably. You are probobly OK if you buy in UK but in France customer service does not exist even though bought from SFR (Vodaphone). I have owned it for over a month but it has already been sent away for repair three times, so have only used it for about 5 days! Coudn't recommend it. From an engieering point of view, the production team have done a good job but the software guys need shooting. How is it that we now accept such poor reliability in phones and computers?

I absolutely HATE this phone. The memory is too large for a mobile phone. You cannot apparently 'Delete ALL' messages, but have to do it one by one. So please tell me how you are meant to do that with a thousand or so messages. and as a result of loads of messages, it takes so long to go through the menu (using the memory). it turns off so many times, when i flick it shut, and basically, is the WORST phone i have ever had.

On 20 July 07 I renew my contract with a Nokia E65 Cell C Cellphone. Guaranteed for 2 years. I experienced the following problems with the phone : Busy talking - Makes a noise and people on the other side cant here me clearly. All of a sudden my phone would just cut out and reboot for no reason. I went back to Solly's where I renewed my contract in the beginning of March and they send the phone in for repairs. Received the phone back... The problem is not fixed. I realy want you to assist me in this matter as I am very unhappy about the service this phone has given me since the first day..I'm in the police which you know is a very responsible work and to be out in a crisis sitting with these problems is furstrating and not save when you have to help people, report crimes and it is your only communication. Please can you contact me on : 084 711 1147 or e-mail me on : belindajehle@ananzi.co.za The serial number on my Invoice for the phone is : 353261017584377 I trust that you will find this in order and would like from you a.s.a.p Thanks F.A.

i have a nokia E65 previously on a contract but now on pay as you go. i have to agree with the phone being more of a business phone than a entertainment phone or photography phone. but it does what you need it to do. you can access messenger anywhere, browse the internet (provided enough credit) and is lightweight and slim. after 2 years of use it has only recently started to show the signs of use so it is pretty hardwearing. i myself get bored of mobiles so am in the market for a new phone. but if you do not get bored of mobiles easy, then i would recommend this phone for businesses and/or regular use. it feels good and is easy to use.

I had this phone as an ugrade from my samsung d600 last june, and I am now counting down the days to my next upgrade. I will list down teh main problems I have with this phone. It has everything you need (if it's not built-in, its still very easy to find applications on the internet) but battery life is very appalling!! I'd be lucky if it lasts a day and a half. On average, it crashes at least once a week when youre trying to access the main menu from standby (even though only one other application is running in teh background). The paint on the housing comes off easily from day to day constant rubbing with other things in the bag. But at the end of the day, I cant really complain as it's a good business phone and I can see my daily calendar entries and helps me keep track of my to do lists. Probably if I buy a new battery off ebay I wont be moaning as much..

I upgraded from my N70 to the E65 even though I was hesitant on a slider phone from nokia as 6620 was so loose and chattery. Suprisingly it had a solid feel, quite a few fucntions and reliable without being slow to access features. It is a business mobile but I also take snaps and listen to mp3s with 2 gig expansion. It does everything you want but its also reliable and small. The only downside I can point out is the talk time and standby-I've had to charge it every 1-2 days maybe I am asking too much? left alone and its on standby for nearly a week. I find the wifi, bluetooth pretty reliable too-I've never had a fault with it. Tempted to keep it another year as the other mobiles on three upgrade are not exactly great. Get it in black or red.

DONT GET THIS PHONE !!!! Im now on my 4th e65. orange keep replacing it but they always develop the same faults, ie, switching itself off and then back on and ringtones /wallpaper is restet to defaults when this happens. Also locks up etc. phonebook button seems to work when it feels like it and bluetooth connection is poor.Also often the microphone or earpiece doesnt work when trying to make calls, the only way to sort out any of these faults is to switch it off and back on or to remove battery. Every fault i have mentioned has occured on every hand set iv had. I dont think this can be coincidence. In short this phone is a pile of junk.

I bought my E65 almost a year ago and I love it. For Benson from Australia; I have 6 recurring alarms every day, I set them on the calendar and then they automatically go off every day, no need to reset. I only use the alarm function for random, one off alarms. The battery isn't the longest lasting, but it is running a lot of applications. I like having Wi-Fi, bluetooth, WLAN and it's worth the slightly shorter battery life to have these functions. I really love the ability to multi-task. I use it all the time. I think the group contact in Team Suites is great. In fact the only thing I think they could have improved on is the camera. I would have liked it placed better for video calls. I don't like the delay when taking a photo. But all in all, a great phone. I am very pleased with it & would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a phone with these functions. I would give it 4.75 stars.

Buyer beware....the phone is as good as the supplier. Most phones sold through mobile shops are grade A- B remanufactured. Mobile stores get special deals on buying reworks. Most reworks still have a higher failure rate. All in all if faulty get a working one and then write an review.

This is by far the worst Nokia I have ever had... in fact, the worst phone I have ever owned! I am on my 4th E65 so far, each developing simular faults... the main one being, the phone often decides not to allow outgoing calls from the recent calls list or phonebook and regularly drops its signal. In fact, all the problems that have been mentioned by others here already! If I had the choice I would not be having this phone again... however, 02 have a policy that states after 4 handsets I am entitled to pick a different handset, not before. So, livid as I am, I am lumbered with it until it decides to develop a fault again! I would not recommend this phone to anyone.... looks can be decieving and I have collegues who are having simular problems!

I'm shocked at the reviews I have just seen. A super phone this, a few nice bit'n'bobs to keep you interested if you change your phone yearly. Messages can be a tad slow, but all in all a good looking bit of kit, at the same time being very functional. I bought mine six months ago, no issues to date, apart from the slow speed. But, to be fair, N-Series Nokia's are the same on that front. Since I bought mine, 'Which' have named the E65, 'Best Buy'. Not buying this phone from reading peoples bad experiences, would be like not buying a pint from your favourite pub because last night your mate had a bad one. Nokia don't make bad phones, lets face it. Anyway, it has a warranty, as long as it's bought from a Nokia supplier. Hope this helps? 4/5... only because of the speed.
