NOKIA E63 (E for EASY :-)
The Nokia E63 is a no-nonsense, down to earth, easy to use mobile phone devices witn decent smartphone capabilities which your money can buy. I bought mine last week in Hotspot in Chennai for exactly Rs.9000.
I bought ZIRCONIUM WHITE color. Felt this pristine white phone (which also looks pearly white when seen from other angle)was much better than the shiny Red or the boring business black :-).
This is my first Nokia smartphone purchase. Now I know why NOKIA is the undisputed World leader in phones. Gosh their phones are so amazingly user friendly and designed with a lot of thought process and lots of research. The key pad is so soft, the QWERTY is so easy to text. Besides that the QWERTY keys being so tiny are well spaced and slightly raised and not flat as seen in other phones in thie price range. This makes typing easier. In my earlier phone brand I used to take so much time typing a message and had to press the keys with effort. Using the super soft Nokia keypad is a breeze. I can type messages in a jiffy without any thumb or finger ache at all. Cool. In an already stressed up world full of office work, I dont have to take stress using complex phones now.
Each and every menu of NOKIA E63 has HELP FILE associated with it. Its like guiding a small child on using a phone. Nokia has taken lots of effort in making this phone. Apart from this A TUTORIAL section will give you detailed graphical slides covering all the functionalities of your phone (this is for those who don't want to read the book supplied in the box).
Camera on this phone is basic 2 MPx. Nothing to write home about. Just a feature on the phone. But lets not forget this is a business phone and camera is not its selling feature.
Surfing INTERNET on this is so cool. e-mailing is again child's play.
Slim and designed so as to not slip from your hands. Comfortable to hold and type text.
Display clarity is amazing. 16 million colors. What more do you want ?
Very fast processor, so using Internet on this is so cool. Browsing on the large screen is also pleasing and easy on our eyes. Don't have to strain looking at small screens with dull or improperly lit TFT screens. Even the keypad is evenly bathed in white color and it lights up automatically when the light sensor detects less light in the room. Even lighting of keypad is again so pleasing to the eye.Plesant white (not bright) light makes the QWERTY key pad look like white pearls in the dark. So nice to the eye. Nokia puts so much of thinking while making human friendly devices.
Voice clarity incoming and outgoing is amazing.
My mother said.. Ganesh your voice is so clear now... Did you change your phone ? I said .. yes Ma.. I recently changed to a NOKIA. She said.. Son. Use this.. I can now hear you loud and CRYSTAL CLEAR.
Ear phones are so comfortable and snugly fit into your ear without piercing it or causing slightest of inconvenience even to the softest of human ears. Even my cousin's small kids didnt feel any discomfort using these ear buds.
Afterall NOKIA makes ONLY phones... Its their only business. They know how to do what they do BEST. Make mobile phones for people to talk world over.. Connecting people isn't it ?
Just go for it, if you are looking to buy (for less than Rs.10,000) a great mobile communication device with upto 80% of the business features provided in high end phones these days. Currently as of May 2010, there is no device of any major brand in the market which beats this in its business features for such an attractive pricing.
Don't go for it if you are going to use it purely for Entertainment features like Camera, Music, etc.. These are just part of this phone (but not the best). The best part of E63 is its Internet, Messaging & Communication capabilities.
Some dealers are offering Reebok watch (worth Rs.2900) while others are giving Reebok sunglasses worth Rs.4500 or so with this phone. Don't forget to ask for it, else the shopkeeper may not give you. They don't give you any discount on the price which is hovering between Rs. 8950 and Rs. 9500 across various shops in Chennai. But ONLY if you ASK for something with it, they will give you the Reebook gift, else they will just sell you the phone :-).
ALL THE BEST. Happy cellphon-ing :-). God bless you.
Can we change the defualt font on the phone?? I think thats the major drawback that it has. The text fonts are so ugly...they turn you off.
keypad will fade of every mobile, all u need to laminate ur cell.
secondly the best phone if u wifi, gprs or 3g connection, because many features are internet based. otherwise not a usable phone.
anyways, i use gprs and fully satisfied with phone, support almost every type of application, and media formats, document formats.
a very good and solid phone........
awsome qwerty pad phone with gr8 price and lot of features. Uptil now no phone in it's competition at such price if u thinking to buy it go ahead. Am using this from 1 month nd enjoyd it a lot.

Arjanus, 22 Jun 2010Is the camera of E63 good? This is one of the most important features to me. Thanksbuy a digital camera, not a celphone...
exceptional phone. i have had it for a year now, and it doesn't disappoint. not ever. i would recommend this phone to anyone who is not sure about buying it.
malhaar, 20 Jun 2010is there any problem in application installation... hoping to buy this... please tell me.... a... morewell...there's a security wall that helps your mobile prevent malicious software to get installed...however set the installation settings to install all...cert chk off....you'll be able to install majority of the apps...
There's no prob with wlan...some networks are protected...and thus require a wep key....check out if there's any unprotected network...if u find one..then instantly u can connect to it...try few times as sometimes u get an error message as NO gateway reply...
Follow me on twitter @ronnie_1712 to stay updated and get your problems solved instantly...:)
there's certainly no chance as such to edit/crop the images....you'll need to browse through ovi store for that as the other apps that i downloaded have failed....try out photofun....it might work....but certainly there's no in-built image editor in e63...
Gb s.a, 19 Jun 2010Hey guys.. Can e63 play divx vids? In the review it says it cant. Is there a way i can mayb pl... moreyes u can play divx files...but for that, you'll need to download coreplayer...
The in-call sound quality of this mobile is actually one of the best...i've been using it since january...
The new FW v410.x is just about perfect...i'd updated it about 2 months back...and the phone hasnt freezed or rebooted on its own since then....also...the equalizer bug has been fixed...
More probs...ask me!!
