GSM Arena, as always, has given a detailed review of the E63 which is going to be immensely helpful to would be buyers. The phone is exactly like the E71 but only feature it falls short of is HSDPA.
I wonder why Nokia couldn't bring out a camera-free version of this model. When details of the phone first appeared in the media in Oct 2008, it was reported that three variants of E63 were possible including a camera-free version, though this review is silent on that. I think smartphone users don't really need camera phones. Nokia could well have given us HSDPA in place of this damp squib 2 Megs optics.
The concept of putting your data onto Ovi servers appears good but what after one year. What would be the subscription costs thereafter?
I don't know about price and availability of the E63 in India. There was a speculation that it could be 40% cheaper than the E71. In that case it would indeed be a steal.
gsm arena you screwed up the review , it is a great phone , does a lot for its price and looks good in hand .... the sound quality is at par with n81 which in my opinion is pretty good for a phone
I really dont know who is doing the device audio analysis for you , but fire him if he lets you post false information on internet
lastly there is a 1 gb micro sd card available in the sales package so you guys wrong here again
So finally i am using this phone.
to answer some querries... yep the review of GSMarena may be misunderstood. I think the sound test there is when someone calls you, so it received a below average mark. but then the sound is still clear i tell you. but when it comes to the audio sound, e63 will give a satisfaction sound, tis really loud with an average crisp. the audio device that you will have when you buy the phone is not good i tell you. but since you can plug a direct earphone in it thru its jack, you can buy a good earphone piece. you will find the difference that the sound is really great. i myself had music phones for the past years, so i thought i will have lot to adjust with this phone when it comes to the sound quality. but really, i am satisfied.
and to the person who says "poor nokia" because it has no infra in it. i can say poor you, are you still looking for a infra connection in your phone? buddy anonymous, look around you, this phone got equal connectivity compared to twice its price phones. so this is really a great phone.
by the way, yep this is the thing that disappoints me, no cable connectors included in the package. so i have to borrow my brother's wires hehe.
and by the way, the thing that made me buy this phone is its battery power. cmon, i use it very rough and the battery stayed for two and a half days. marvelous.
i have a question for the nokia e63 users. the gsmarena review team say that it has a not good sound quality though i have read in some other mobile web sites that it has a good sound quality and my question to those who have used it already, does e63 has a good sound quality or not specially in the headphones.
thanks a lot
I wonder if the price in Europe will compare to the one declared by Nokia.... Anyway, it's a difference amount of 100 Euros between E71 and E63. Maybe this one will hit better the students or a part of the business people, not all, because of the color....
Excellent phone. It is a good replacement of Nokia E61i!
-Camera is not very good, But can improve in upcoming firmware ver.
-Small screen size. At least size 2.5" for best view in Landscape, like BB Curve series.

great phone!!!!! with 3.5 mm jack and flashlight!!! I love this!!! i can read books on it!!!! wow!!! and the price is totally mind-blowing!!!! very good price!!!
I went to a celphone shop here in our city, i was choosing between w760 and e51. so i demanded so much of attention to the salesladies letting them bring out the two phones. after testing them for about half hour, i told the miss "miss, can i get the e63, im gonna buy it" hahaha, the reaction. but gradually she smiled, i got some jokes for her.
i just hope this phone will suit my lifestyle. im into music phones a lot and this is my first business type phone.
i chose this phone over e51 and w760 because the price is nice (i bought it for 12,300 phil pesos). the battery is 11 hour so it wont bother me to charge it everyday. the features are the same as e51, proven for its performance and connectivity.
my cons for this phone is, though ergonomically its better, the size, i cant put it in my pocket instead i have to wear it with a strap around my neck.
WOOOOOW!!! its here!!! what a beautiful price - 12,500 pesos only!!!! and the beautiful 3.5 mm jack!!! I AM GONNA BUY THIS BEAUTY!!! THE BLUE ONE FOR ME!!! Thank you NOKIA!!! Are you listening Sony Ericsson Walkman designers?

anybody tried to install a 240x320 application or it just support 320x240, and can we use a remote controle with its headphones like the n81 and n78 and does the headphones thats included contains mic
The price of Nokia E71 is Rs.35000.00 and the price of Rs.25,000.00 is resonable for Nokia E63 also. Differences are only:
-HSDPA 3.6 Mbps
-3G 384 kbps
-3.15 MP, 2048x1536 pixels, autofocus, video(QVGA@15fps), flash; secondary videocall camera
-2 MP, 1600x1200 pixels, flash, video (QVGA@15fps)
Both also have ability to create and edit 2003 files in .xls format (no 2007 editing/viewing support)
you must upgrade. If you have more money to buy beauty Nokia E71 but one major difference i feel practically grip and QWERTY keyboard that i feel more comfortable to use Nokia E63 than Nokia E71.
is it dual camera? that "thing" on top on the screen,, is that a front camera or light sensor..? pls reply
