Nokia E66 Reviews

Pocket-lint reviews the Nokia E66 and writes, "HSDPA, Wi-Fi, a 3.2 megapixel camera, Assisted-GPS come encased in a metal body that is solid and yet still lightweight. The front of the handset sports a large screen, the usual answer and hang-up buttons as well as a series of shortcuts to the home screen, messages, calendar and phone book...Sliding the handset north reveals a standard un-fussed 12 key keypad for dialling. Volume and dedicated camera buttons alongside USB and memory card slots litter the side, but it's all kept to a minimum."

Wired reviews the Nokia E66 and writes, "The E66 has a lot in common with an N-series device, and is functionally almost identical to the N78, sporting 3G, Wi-Fi, media player, FM radio and a 3.2-megapizzle cam. But there is one overarching quality that puts it squarely in the business world: Like many jobs, it sounds great at first, but gets old real fast once you see past the shine...Camera sucks in anything but perfect light, serving up a heaping spoonful of image noise and low dynamic range."

InfoSync reviews the Nokia E66 and writes, "The Nokia E66 uses a 3.2-megapixel sensor on its camera, with an auto focus lens, but images were still pretty lousy. Portraits lacked detail, especially around the edges. Lighting was problematic as well, and the camera couldn't manage a well-lit photograph even in our studio light box. There was a nice selection of options for sending and printing images, but we can't imagine wanting to pass these pictures along."

MobileTechReview has a review of the Nokia E66 and writes, "I'm sure you were as excited as we were when we heard that the Nokia E66 has a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus lens. Well, don't get too excited-- despite the impressive specs, the images are less than you'd expect, especially from a Nokia phone. We weren't expecting N95-level photos, after all the N95 has a 5 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens, but we were hoping they'd match the Nokia E90, N73 and N78. Nope. At least not ours. Images have noise, even on some outdoors shots and in general lack sharpness. Outdoor shots are decidedly better than indoor shots, with indoor shots looking grainy and noisy. Color balance is a little off, sometimes being too warm and other times shifting to the magenta."

Trusted Reviews has a review of the Nokia E66 and writes, "Despite the niggles, I have to say I like the E66. If you do a lot of emailing and messaging while you're out and about and prefer the convenience of a QWERTY keyboard, then you're probably better off with the E71 (which we'll be reviewing very soon)...But for those who prefer a phone to be, well, a phone first and an emailer second, then its combination of sleek design, solid business features and ease of use make it one of the most attractive handsets on the market right now."
