The Nokia E55 was announced back at the Mobile World Congress in February of ’09, being the successor of the popular Nokia E51. The Nokia E55 is an awesome little phone, here at NMB we are big fans of this interesting device. First, it is the first Nokia device with a semi-QWERTY keyboard improving messaging over the old T9 keyboard, and secondly, it has the best battery life ever on a Nokia smartphone with over 1 month of stand-by time!. But is not only that what makes the E55 such an interesting device, there are other things that we think – are awesome. For example the Nokia E55 is the thinnest Nokia smartphone ever, even thinner than the Nokia E71. The E55 has also an amazing build-quality and materials, that plus the size makes the E55 probably the most compact and resistant Nokia smartphone to date. The E55 has also other interesting features like a 3.5mm Audio Jack, digital compass!, GPS and a 3.2 Megapixel camera. All in all, we see the Nokia E55 as a compact, reliable and flexible smartphone with lots and lots of potential, not to mention the white version looks ridiculously good.
But soon after the Nokia E55 was announced, the Nokia E52 was announced too and everybody got confused (but don’t worry, we are here to explain everything). The Nokia E52 is similar to the Nokia E55, has the same great battery life, built-quality, digital compass, GPS, thinnest smartphone…bla bla bla. So what exactly is the difference? The difference between the Nokia E55 and the Nokia E52 is basically two things, the first and most important is that the E52 has a T9 standard keyboard rather than the semi-QWERTY keyboard. And the second thing, is that the Nokia E52 has a noise cancelling earpice, which the Nokia E55 lacks. As always Nokia had to make it confusing for the user to decide which one to get, we still go for the E55 because of the keyboard, but the noise cancelling earpice for clearer voice calls is also a great thing to have on a smartphone.
Here are two videos, the first of the Nokai E55 and the second one of the Nokia E52. Which one to get? We say E55 all the way!
