I just compared the E71 and Omnia side by side and to tell the truth, the Omnia is re... moreI had bought 1 set of E71. I used it on the first day after charging for 8 continuous hours. It did not last me beyond 3 hours. I am a very heavy voice-call user (though not all 3 hours were voice call but about 2 hours approximately). I swapped the battery and still the same result.
I bought another one on the second (after buying the 1st one) for a friend not knowing that the battery life is poor. he complained of the same issue. He is also a heavy voice-call user (approximately 1.5 hours of continuous call).
Could there be something that I may be overlooking?
The GSM Arena Specification page says 10 hours on 2G network and 4 hours on a 3G network. My service provider gives us 3G though in my town they have not rolled out the 3G.

I just compared the E71 and Omnia side by side and to tell the truth, the Omnia is real impressive in specs.
However, these are the things GSMArena sees as a downfall:
* No stylus slot
* Poor sunlight legibility
* Memory card not hot-swappable
* Non-standard display resolution
* No dedicated 3D accelerator
* Non-standard USB port
* Web browser lacks real Flash support
The E71 has excellent sunlight legibility (I have seen it for myself)
The E71 supports hot-swap for memory cards
The E71 has strong support for flash.
If you weigh both of them side by side you will see advantages and disadvantages in comparison to each other.
I have two things to say to you:
1. Once you get your hands on the E71 you won't want to let it go. There are enough things to make you easily appreciate and love it.
2. If the world runs out of E71 then go for the Omnia.
That's the best advice I can give you my friend.

The ONLY sound advice I can give you is that you can't go wrong with Nokia.

Very bad phone. Not worthed for this high price at all.
1. Phone hangs 15-20 times a day.
2. Poor connectivity with PC/ Laptop for browsing.

shan, 12 Mar 2009no the phone comes in two colour black and white onlyits actually in Grey Steel, White Steel and Black, cheers
I was also having problem with connecting to my Wifi at home as it was giving an error " No Gate way Reply".I searched the internet and there were so many suggestions but very complicated asking me work in IP Address and stuff.But at last i found one suggestion which worked for me.Its simple go to menu>tools>settings>connection>WirelessLAN>options>Advanced settings.
It would give u a message that changing advanced settings is not recommended.Continue Anyway?.Click Yes.When it give u the option of Power Saving:Enabled.Just simply Disable it.
I hope it solve the problem for most of the users of E-71.It worked for me :)
