I have been posting my thought about E71 and have been doing comparisions between E71 and E63 ON E71 FORUM SITE.
All my post are made under name RAJESH. For all those who are confused in decession making whether to choose E63 or E71 kindly read my posts made on E71 forums.
Your comments and questions are welcome.
Have a nice day.
Yesterday evening I bought another E71 handset.
The reason being, it occured to my mind maybe the handset I tried had faulty configuration or any kind of hardware or software problem. Because whatever I say about E63 I cannot let go the looks and feel of E71. It looks the cutest device on earth.
Afterall there are hundreds of thousands of satisfied E71 users. So I have made further detailed studies about E71.
My final conclusion-
E71 proved to be a great gadget when it comes to emailing, web browsing, connectivity options (even though infrared port is outdated, still it has been included in E71 creating more options for transfer and receiving of data).
And I am so sad to say this device only stay a winner in Messaging environment. If you are a workholic and spend most of your time in communication than this is definitely a device made for you.
Camera again was a dissapointment. So I was right. Whatever a few of E71 fans say about E71 they cannot change a fact that the camera optics included in E71 have a faulty performance. I tried in everyway to click a good picture but failed.
I dont agree to one of anonymous surfer saying that you have to be a pro to click a picture when you are using a camera phone. I have used best camera phones like SE K800i, K810i, N73music, N82, N95, Samsung i8510 Innov8 and moderate camera phones on E series like E51, E61i, E63 but never came across such a horrible camera. One of the surfer signed as Anonymous said very correctly THE MACHINE CHOOSES ITS MAN. I love it. E71 will definitely choose someone who is a workholic and love to beautiful looks of E71.
Sound quality from speaker was okay but not a good as E63. But through headphones E63 is no match. I tried using adopter (3.5mm to 2.5mm) and tried my Sennheiser headphones on E71 but sound quality was below average. So E71 is purely NO MULTIMEDIA PLEASE WORK ONLY.
So all in all if you need a device that can do only messaging and web browsing for you than go for E71. Looks great but it is definitely scratch prone, no matter what leather case, or silicon case or plastic case you use. As mentioned in my last post NOKIA SHOULD HAVE USED BRUSHED METAL AND NOT GLOSSY METAL WHICH IS FINGERPRINT AND SCRATCH PRONE.
Now whatever capability you get on E71, I mean communication ability (whatelse do you expect from E71), E63 is a fantastic device which has the same capability of communication As E63 has a larger keyboard and a winner in key placements. (the same format you will find in E72.
E63 can be called a messenger device with multimedia features as add on for those who like to work and play. And you will pay less to get it.
The only thing lacking in E63 is GPS and 3.5G (E63 uses only 3G). There are many who will need them and will get them on E71 and there are people who will let go of these features and choose E63 as a Economical option.
Camera on E63 is the same camera included with E61i and E51. It is average and much better than E71.
E63 have additional tool, a Flashlight. This I think is a must for day to day emergency needs. Nokia have also included this feature in E72.
Now it seems I have to let go of my E71 again. I will stick to E63. I know that most of E71 fans will never agree that E63 is a better device but if I could have changed it. We can only expect E72 which is realising next week has a much better performance and we can again get a full featured handset with great looks without any faulty configuration.
Have a nice day.
i love my nokia e63. i think its way better than the e71. i have one problem i try to download adobe it is askin what operating system im using. what do i do here?
Punkguy, 29 Sep 2009Can i upgrade my e63 s60v3 to s60v5? If yes how can i?s60v5 is available for only nokia touchscreen phones, and is only compatible with them. And as for upgrading the firmware, you can upgrade it for the latest bug fixes and additions in the new firmware. But s60v3 will remain s60v3 and not convert to s60v5. Only the software will be updated if you upgrade the firmware, and nothing else.
anonymous, 26 Sep 2009should i choose e63 or samsung s5600 or lg ku990? which one is recommended?I am currently a user of ku990, and i have got awesome pics, the net was good enough, just that u have to unbrand it before using opera mini, cuz vodafone branded ku990 software will not allow opera mini to get installed.
I saw the s5600 a few days back and the touch screen responsiveness was as good as the iphone. the pics were good and the UI was exeptional.
Now I am going to try out the E63, cuz i was not satisfied with both the phones mentioned above, and i m sure that E63 will satisfy me.
Hi,I'm shafiq from Malaysia.
I'd bought this phone about RM750,
and this is the best ever phone that I have.
I like blackberry so much but I cant affort it.
Hence I keep surveying on Nokia E-Series.
Finally I bought E63 eventhough I fall in love with E71.
Yes, I like metal.
but metal always easier to be scratched. I would prefer E63 bcuz of my budgets, and the spec of the phone.
I used ultramarine blue, even i would prefer for black.
I like the switch function.
for me, the sound much louder than 6233 (my old phone) even its mono, than stereo speakers.
yes, it have the best speed for browsing internet n streaming video (i use youtube from google and Opera Mini 4 as my browser).
and, I'm satisfied with this phone.
all of my money are worth for this phone!

Your problem is not this phone specific, but common for file transfer through pc suites. Simply use file manager in pc studio and explore the other or installation folder in c or e, then copy and pest. Don't drag the content directly in the phone image in pc suite for your convenience. It's may help you. Thanks.
Hi guyz,on ur opinion ,btwn Nokia E63 and 5800 which is better coz I am afraid of the touchscreen of 5800 but it kind of has lyk everything(HSDPA and is a tv phone). Pliz answer me.
This is a nice phone for affordable price. Office editor, email, and calendar are the usp of this phone. Build material is excellent but finishing are not at par, front and back cover are loose and presence of visible gap. Sound quality is superb both head phone and speaker. A song may be hang or stop if you try to fast forward or rewind in playing mode. Don't except various sound effect in equilizer, though there's various equilizer present in music player. Display is very good even in outdoor. Camera is very good and much better than other brands 2mp cam, it's enough for me. Smart dial, Remote locking and Advance call manager are add value. I really miss the little thing the Stopwatch! A file or folder locker need for confidential docs. Voice apps are awesome. This phone stands for really value for money. Thanks
Friend, E63 or E71 is all upto your requirement, Liking and Dislikings.
I have used both the sets and today I have posted my reviews and opinion on E71 site. You can read them and that should help you to decide.
