Lots of Features

Advantages: Lots of features, Good Web Browser
Disadvantages: Crashes Frequently
I upgraded my previous phone to a Nokia E65 in December 2007. My E65 is on a '3' network price plan for £25/month within which I get 750 free minutes or texts (mix & match).
I was looking for a phone with good Internet access for an affordable price and at the time the E65 was a good mid-range choice. The Nokia N95 or Apple IPhone proving to be too expensive at the time.
The E65 is packed with features including:
- Web Browser
- Wireless Networking Capability (Ability to browse the web from Wirelsss Hotpots)
- MSN Messenger
- A range of games
- Trial office software
- Navigator for GPS service (seperate hardware required)
- Printer Drivers
- Adobe PDF
- Zip Manager
- 2mb camera
The 2mb camera works well for a camera phone and produces good images. Although there is no built in flash facility which is a problem for photos taken at night.
The web browser is relatively easy to use although the text is fairly small to read.
The phone is installed with the Symbian platform (as opposed to Windows or others) and has the habit of crashing on a fairly regular basis (Although most of the time remains stable, if not a little slow to respond).
Battery time is disappointing, as is the build quality. After 6 months the back cover is already starting to peel. The E65 is also fairly bulky and a little weighty.
As an affordable phone with Internet access and a wide range of features the E65 is highly recmended against more expensive alteratives if you don't mind the odd glitch and a small screen.
Summary: A good all round phone with plenty of features and good Internet access
