e71 is a good phone, just one observation. i'm a heavy user of mobile internet. after surfing the net, i 'clear all privacy data' and check my phone memory. I notice that the 'memory in use' slowly increases, each time i go online- like a memory leak. This happens, even after i reboot my phone. Does anyone have a similar experience with their e71?
This is the best smartphone out there

Tom mickey, 30 Jul 2008 the new navigator is better than the E71 when it comes to the GPS functions.the acceleromete... moreafter reading ur post a few times..i think that the phone that'll suit u is either the N82 or the N95 8GB..u dont like the looks of the navi6210,so dont buy a phone which u think is ugly..ur not buying the phone for business purposes,so dont buy the E71,cause ull have a bunch of business apps which u wont be using and lack the multimedia features that u like..so its best if u buy either the N95 8GB or the N82,both are all rounder phones that can perform everything..
Tom mickey, 30 Jul 2008 the new navigator is better than the E71 when it comes to the GPS functions.the acceleromete... moreactually,the GPS unit used in N95,N82 and E71 are the same.its just that now it has been enhanced from the previous version of the N95-1 in order to support A-GPS (assisted gps) which utilizes the cellular network to obtain faster fix of the satellites.how ever,if u r looking for a phone with the best GPS functionality,then the Navigator 6210 would be the way to go.personally,i wouldnt buy a N95 8GB(no offence) because,for me,its a little over priced due to the lack of camera shutter,memory card expansion,rather poor built quality considering the hefty price and most of all,xenon flash.i travel alot,so getting the best 'camera' phone is my priority.

Quasi87, 29 Jul 2008im thinking of really buying this fone. its a toss up between e71 and the htc s620(yes i know ... moreI just switched from HTC-S620 to Nokia E71 , HTC-S620 was my favorite always but I also loved nokia e71 , Both are different price range product , Nokia has following benefit over HTC-S620
3.2 Megapixel Camera
nokia runs youtube , htc-s620 doesnt
Support 8gb card
in nokia you have option to send group sms
rest I believe is same.
Is it possible to install 3rd party navigation software like Tom Tom / Route66 so that it uses the internal GPS receiver built in the E71?
(Otherwise we'd have to pay continually to use voice navigation using Nokia Maps).
The battery indicator is more accurate in E71 than any other Nokia phone. Therefore E71 first bar drop will appear sooner that other Nokia phone in the same usage pattern. However, while other Nokia phone if drop one bar actually means the battery is going to run out, but for E71 is still mean it got more than 85% of battery power.
E71 is great but not the best. GPS isn't the best screen isnt the biggest keypad is kind of small as well.
Arif, 30 Jul 2008Thanks arif. Well E66 is out of the question it feels so similar to the E65 which i currently ... more
the new navigator is better than the E71 when it comes to the GPS functions.the accelerometer embedded within the navi6210 allows 360 degrees rotation when navigating.so it would be like your holding a compass..it also has a small star in the middle of the phone that blinks when the GPS is locked in..its quite nice actually..since u r considering the navi6210,it just comes to show that u are not really looking for a qwerty keypad phone.in that case,may i also suggest that u take a look at the N82 Black.it packs nice features as well with a reasonable price
So does the E71 or N95 or N82 not allow 360 degrees rotation when navigating?
Yes it doesn't really matter to me if its a qwerty keypad phone or not.
I really like the E71 but I want the best GPS as well and E71 doesn't offer the best GPS and n95 n82 and the navigator all have a better GPS correct.

Faryal_SHaKeeL, 30 Jul 2008Hi All Battery is Poor Otherwise thats Good one Faryal_SHaKeeLAre you serious that battery is poor? I thought it was 1 of the best same battery as E90
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2008check on the SAR rating, high!Yes, the SAR Value is 1.33 W/kg which is almost double than "normal" mobile phones. This same value goes for E51. Why compromise health for higher radiation?
Battery is Poor
Otherwise thats Good one
