Paul, Scotland

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
I like the fact that its compact and solid. It is easy to use once your fingers have become accustomed to the small key pad
Bad points:
The sound when playing back music files is not particulary good. My previous phone was a 6610 which knocks spots of this phone in terms of sound.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
This is a nice small phone with a good camera and interesting features.
Bad points:
Very small keys for larger fingers. If you are used to nokia it takes some getting used to and it seems to be less easy to set the phone such things as office or meeting settings.

Manufacturer's Description

Photo Friendly
Get creative with the E590’s 3MP camcorder and camera, which comes with a cool camera UI and Panorama Shot. You can even transform an image from the camcorder’s footage into a photo. Save it in a roomy 90MB or via microSD, or print with Bluetooth.

For Your Viewing Pleasure
Enjoy the view. A 262K TFT LCD display gives you brilliant colors and clarity. It automatically switches from picture-taking mode to horizontal landscape view for better photo ops. Viewfinder Contrast Augmentation improves visibility.

Sonic Boom
Calling all music lovers. The E590 delivers music through MP3, AAC, AAC+, e-AAC+ and WMA formats. It comes with FM radio, Background Music Play, 64 polyphonic ringtones, wireless sound via Bluetooth and a music library. Enjoy a world of choices.

Less is More
Efficiency turned into art. That’s the E590. An edgy and minimalist beauty blankets this inspiring and compact bar design. On one side is a phone keypad and LCD screen. On the other is a camera. The E590 stops the show with subtlety.

Squishy Support
Witness innovation turned cute – amusing, even! Gone are the days of big and gangly three-legged tripods. Here now is a squishy, ultra-flexible mini bean bag on which you can stand your camera. Get in the photo too and sequence images via Panorama Shot.

Video Recorder
Record on the run with the E590. MPEG4 and H.263 file formats let you capture the sounds at a scene as well. Once you’re done, store all your footage, without having to choose favourites, with a generous 90MB of memory.

Timeless and Classic Entertainment
Take an FM radio wherever you go. Enjoy your favourite radio shows and round-the-clock music, news, weather and traffic reports using auto/manual tuning. Or save your favourite channels, tune less and just sit back.

Music library
Dewey Decimal System, move over! The Music Library makes cataloguing, organizing and finding titles easier than ever. Sort by song, artist, genre and more. Create albums to suit your every whim and mood. A library for sound. No shushing here!

Mega-Generous MicroSD
Are you the saving type? No problem. Enjoy a generous volume of built-in memory plus a microSD slot that has a virtually limitless capacity. In other words, the phone may be slim, but your pickings don’t have to be.

Connect like never before, no wires attached, with Bluetooth. Transfer your files faster, without hassle and with greater ease. Enjoy content on headsets, speakers and other peripheral devices. It’s all about options.

Connect Words
Supremely mobile yet unbelievably connected. Enjoy wireless freedom with Bluetooth 2.0, print, transfer data, get in sync with peripherals, connect conventionally via USB 1.1 and access the Web whenever you want. The E590 is your portal to, well, everything.

Printing Privileges
Sometimes, you need something you can hold. Connect directly to a printer via USB and print photos and other files using PictBridge. Or, with the touch of a button, use the Basic Printing Profile (BPP) to print on Bluetooth-enabled printers.

Document Viewer
Do business anytime, anywhere. Document Viewer gives you access to MS Office, Adobe PDF, HTML and JPEG files. Who needs an office? Get productive with your mobile.

Your 24-7 Assistant
A palm-sized scheduler, 1000-entry phonebook, alarm clock and more. Who needs a secretary? Synchronize your contacts/schedule with your PC via vCard and vCalendar. Eliminate chaos with PIM programs. Multitask with a hands-free speaker
