Ease of Use

I wanted this phone so much & now I got it! :) I've been using it about 2 weeks and I must say that is the best smartphone I've had and out there. It's capabilities are amazing at least! I had E61i and the only reason I replaced it because of the slow responsive interface! Now with the E71 I have true performance, beautiful design and even couple of extra features in my pocket:P App. that stand out + features:WiFi,GPS,built in radio,Nokia Search,Mobbler,Mobiola WebCam,Nokia browser,Nokia Video Centre,Locr,Multiscaner,WeFi,OctroTalk(video stream and videotalk in near future...),Panoman,CorePlayer,FSCaller,Fring,Gmaps,WorldMate. This can do it ALL! One thing that I find it difficult was when trying to take the MicroSD card out of the phone...One have to push real deep and with my finger I can't reach the needed depth, so I use my keys instead. The voice is SOOO CLEAR&LOUD! I adore that! The pouch and the lanyard are great accessories! Battery lasts me 3 days now with intense usage, though a "achieved" 2 days with all day probing and tasting the phone :P But that's normal for tech guy like me:) I expect 4 days with no hassle once I get to now every little thing about this beautiful and very stylish phone. Oh yeah, the camera takes great photos on day light and night time with enough light. When a take shoots in darker rooms, there is annoying purple color all over the picture which I hope will be resolved with new firmware update. That's all I've wanted to share with all of you which have Nokia E71 or intend to buy one or more :) p.s. I have the E71-2 version which is for NAM. So I can't use the 3G in Europe i.e. Macedonia. But I am okey with this, because I have EDGE and WiFi all over when I will be in need.

I go through a lot of phones. Mainly because I can't seem to find the perfect one. I always find something I really dislike about a phone or something is missing. With the first gen iPhone, there was a LOT missing for me. I didn't have that phone for very long. I really thought I had it figured out when I bought the N95-3. That was a really neat device. You could do pretty much anything on it (including edit videos and splice in sound, etc.). But after a while, I just couldn't handle not having a keypad (I message a lot). That being said, I have to say that this phone is the closest I've ever had to perfect. The GPS locks on super quick (compared to my N95) and it has a keypad, bluetooth, wifi, 3.5g. I don't need to tell you the specs, you can see them for yourself. What makes this phone great is that it works. Symbian is a great, stable operating system. Even if you do have to reboot, it's lightning fast. You can install tons of free applications, send MMS messages (take that, iPhone!), tether it to various devices. You can get into the file system and modify content. You can do all of this without having to modify the operating system or "jailbreak" it. I really wanted to like the iPhone, but it was too restricted. I like to be able to mess around with my phone. I'm an I.T. guy. It's in my nature. Design: This phone is beautiful. It reminds me a little of the first gen iPhone. It has a lot of metal in it and it's very heavy for as slim as it is, probably due to the huge 1500 maH battery. Battery life is phenomenal on this phone. I have people in my office who complain about their iPhone 3G batteries all the time. This phone will last you 2-3 days with heavy use easily. If you're looking at this phone it's because you want something...more. You don't want an iPod that acts as a phone, or you don't like touch screen phones. You want something that works well in a business environment and you like a qwerty keyboard. If that's the case, you should buy this phone. The honest-to-god only complaint I could possibly have is the camera. It's not great. Most Nokia cameras are overkill, if anything (like the 5 mp Carl Zeiss on the N95), but this one has issues. Most of the issues with this camera are in dark environments. It seems to be the optics, so a firmware update won't fix that. That being said, it isn't horrible and it records video, which the iPhone still doesn't do. It zooms, which the iPhone still doesn't do (sad, really), and you can do a lot with the pictures/videos after you take them. Anyway, that's my rant. I wish I could give a more detailed, comprehensive review, but I don't have time and there are plenty on the web. Check them out. I read them all before I made my purchase and pretty much all of them were dead-on.

Simply Amazing!!!

by Nestor on 2/8/2009

First off, let's not go comparing this device to an iPhone! They are both no where near each other so let's set that straight. The phone itself is amazing. It's construction and feel right off the bat tells you this phone is made with quality! Worth every penny. Runs on 3G where available, is super crystal clear when talking on it, email support is perfect. It has a small screen when you (if you still are comparing it to the iPhone) but that doesn't matter. I have an iPhone, a Nokia E71 & a LG Voyager. Love them all in they're own special way! To sum it all up, this phone quite possibly kills the blackberry. My problem with the blackberry was it's sidekick's dirty track ball. Read More

Very solid device

on 3/2/2009

I have had the E71 now for about 2 weeks and it has been amazing so far. At first I was a little disappointed with the size of the QWERTY however, I'm completely used to it now and I can type virtually mistake-free. The phone performs almost all its tasks extremely quickly, I did get one or two stalls/resets from heavy usage however, but this is understandable, when you are demanding so much from such a compact device. I bought a silicone case for it and it looks great, I do like to use it outside of the case occasionally to remind myself of its sleek, sexy design. Since this phone has been around for a decent amount of time now, the support / forums online are very helpful and there is plenty of software to download to increase functionality. I can only imagine how awesome this device would be if I had an unlimited data plan (I currently am on a campus and use WiFi most of the time, and it performs great). Read More
