i have both E71 which i use as my BB but via MfE. The E66 is my work day phone. I was very impressed with E71 soundsystem, it sound tight and loud without distortion.
I had very high hopes for the E66 based on my experience with E71, but the camera and sound system in E66 failed miserably.
Can someone please tell me if E71 and E66 are using the same sound system or they are different ? Because E71 sounds REALLY GOOD !!!
I'm aware that E Series are business phone and I should not expect good multimedia outputs, but since they included a 3.2mp AF Camera, they might as well do a good job implementing it.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2008I just got my E66 and have been happy using it. the feeling is totally different from the prev... moreGreat report. One thing I would like to ask is if any headphone with 2.5mm jack is provided and if there is a 3.5mm to 2.5mm jack input? Saw earlier reviews that sound distorts at max volume, is this true?
Anonymous: Thanks for your info & experience on e66. Can you tell us more about battery life and sound quality...i mean..loudness of ringtone and music when played in speakerphone. Thanks

but i'll stick to my e90
I just got my E66 and have been happy using it. the feeling is totally different from the previous E-series which is much a disappointment. :(
So far accessing the menus are pretty fast and did not hang on me when i start to multi-task on it. They provide free 90days navigations n a full license city guide of ur choice. the new features like auto screen rotation which only can b found on the N95 8GB. the screen rotation seems much smoother than the N95 8GB. wat i like most of this phone is when a call comes in, u can either choose to tap 2x on the lower part of the phone or turn it over n face down to silent the call. this only feature in the 8800 arte/sapphire arte. Smooth n solid build for the slider. feels as if ur owning a 8800 but with functions n expandable memory slot. Camera quality is so-so, anyway, E-series doesn't target quality of photos. It's target on people who needs PDA functions in pocket size.
This phone comes with a 2GB microSD card, a leather carrying case n a leather hand strap. These are the things that was not provided by the previous E-series.
Previously E65 only comes with a soft pouch which looks similiar to the one in N7270. no hand strap given nor can it be attach to the phone. infact, none of the E-series came with an option to put in a hand strap. E90 came with a leather carrying case which is quite buky to carry. E51, E61 & E61i dun even come with any carrying case. Recently a leather pouch for E61i finally arrived but its too late cos this phone is already obselete here. :( wat a waste! this time round, nokia is smart, they put these accessories into the sale package. E71 n E66 comes with the leather pouch n hand strap. It may differ in other countries. hope those who have this phone share the same sentiments as me rather than complaining about picture qualities. u should know why we choose E-series. If we have to compare E-series n N-series, tat will b unfair. hope this helps.
of course it failed.. if it doesn't fail it's not a nokia.
Huge disappointment. Loudspeaker bearly possible to hear, loud noise from speakers beacuse you have to set volume to max to hear anything.
Outdated menus, I am returning this. Thats my last Nokia ever, they always fail in some way.
So far as I know a lot Nokia E66 users report that they all have Camera problem when inserted a Sim card and connected to network. Camera will be very slow loading and camera image on screen is upside down. Once take out the Sim card, Camera go back to normal, loading very fast and no upside down problem. It might be firmware problem, hope Nokia will have some update soon.
I have no idea what happen to my Brand new NOkia E66 camera, the display for camera is upside down when my Sim card is inserted, but with sim card removed the camera back to normal. Anyone got same problem. Please help
I bet the camera is as bad as on e65, just with more pixels.
Everything else seems great though, finally something to look forward to :)
I just got a E66, everything is so good. But the default setting of my camera is showing upside down, Someone please help me set it back to normal
Guys, I would like to know how good the build quality of this phone is. Can someone give a proper description about it? I would really appreciate if an actual user can be bothered to answer my question. thanks in advance.
I have a E65 and use the VoIP feature all the time. I only wish the WiFi signal strength was better. If I am not very close to the AP I get no reception. I also have an iPOD touch and it always gets much better reception. Is the WiFi reception better on the E66? Can anyone confirm this?

I jsut bought my E66 few hours ago from Nokia Shop in Bangkok. It is great looking phone and it seems like Nokia has made few changes on menu which look great. I have already E51 but the New E66 look better and easier to use. Great Phone.
