Nokia E51 features a Real player for playing your video clips. The video player can be displayed in both portrait and landscape mode and can be switched to fullscreen.

Watching a video clip on a small classy screen like this is not an earthshaking experience at all. When in full screen, the softkey functions are hidden so that they don't spoil the viewing experience and only pop up when a key is pressed.

Forwarding and rewinding are not among the available options of the player. It's high time those basic functions were included in every Nokia phone's player.

Watching clips in the Real player is OK in Landscape mode only

The Nokia E51 is equipped with Frequency Modulation (FM) radio with support for the Visual Radio internet service. It can store up to 50 radio stations.

The Visual radio application can download the radio stations in your area and save them to the handset with their names if an internet connection is present. We would have preferred RDS support, though not having it isn't really that much of a disappointment.

Gallery boring

The gallery of Nokia E51 is as modest as in any other E series phone. It offers few options and is not intended for intensive image handling.

Otherwise, no changes are to be seen here in terms of features - pictures can be viewed in both portrait and landscape mode and zoomed in up to 2x.

The gallery's functionality is basically doubled by the file manager, which is at hand too. There is an application manager to hold care of the installed applications on Nokia E51. Its functionality boils down to providing details about installed applications, removing them and keeping a log of movements in both directions.

File manager and application manager are the same well known applications

The useful "Search" application is also present in Nokia E51. The application itself finds almost every item in your Nokia containing a given keyword. From messages to settings, every bit of data is checked and all results are then shown. If you have a vast base of files, located on both the built-in memory, and the memory card, this application will acquire much appreciated.

"...The two megapixel capturing camera in Nokia E51 has no autofocus, nor flash. There isn't even a mirror for self portraits though 4x digital zoom is available. You won't find a dedicated key, either. The capturing camera can apply some basic settings including night mode, sequence mode, self timer, white balance and color tone..."
