- Keyboard better than expected
- Has a hole for wrist strap (finally!)
- E-mail setup was fairly easy
- GPS (yay!)
- Great default settings for profiles, home screen application shortcuts
- Overall excellent use of the home screen (idle)
- Very nice mechanism for releasing the back battery cover (squeeze and lift)
- 3.2 MP camera
- Pre-loaded bar-code reader, which looks cool, but I can’t figure out how it works.
- Keyboard arrangement a bit odd
- I know it’s really small for a QWERTY keyboard (that’s why I got it), but the E65 was a more comfortable size
- Slow, slow download of e-mail (even just the headers)
- Not yet synced with my Mac PowerBook G4 (which might be a problem with my iSync)
- GPS use costs extra monthly to activate (oh, well…)
- A bit slippery, despite the dot design on the back
- My outgoing test e-mail hasn’t gone out, even though mail is getting in
- The system doesn’t remember the WAP access key for my home wireless network (as was true with my E65), which means I have to manually enter it every time I take the phone online. This is a royal pain in the neck.
- Shiny metal back is not lovely, and attracts fingerprints
- S60 not always behaving as expected, including some quirky softkey labels in the web browser (Messaging?!)
- I haven’t found out how to turn off the feature that automatically locks the keypad after a few minutes of non-use. It’s OK, but I’d like to have control over that.
