hi guys,i am here just to share a few thoughts on the E71.i have used tonnes of nokia phones as well as other branded phones such as LG,sonyericsson,motorola,alcatel,sagem,,blackbeery,hp,samsung...u name it..i have used over 50 phones throughout my entire life,and im only 25..haha..lookin to reach the goal of 100...anyways u can say that i am a fan of technology..my current phone is the N82 (which i love so much)..i was going to buy the n97 but heard bad reviews bout it,so will wait for the n900.but 2 days ago i bought myself the white e71,love it!..ive used it before but gave it to my dad,however i couldnt resist so i boght another one..haha..however there are some things i frown upon on the e71-2.5mm jack,poor media support,and led flash(but thats why i have the n82)....i am a power user,so the speed on the e71 is very2 cool to have..it looks fantastic,upgraded mines to support office2007,even keep my CV's in my phone..its everything i need on the go,battery life-just brilliant!..i would recommend this phone to anyone!..its quite cheap nowadays anyway..
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2009i think u indo guys are damned rich lah, can buy phones anytime as you wish...in cash somemore... moreWhich country are you from and how much does E71 and E63 cost in your country.
Thanks for writing to me.
Milan, 01 Oct 2009Rajesh, can you please make a comparison in typing - e71 vs e63
I saw you wrote something abo... moreKeyboard on E63 is very comfortable to use. Space bar key has been made shorter to incluse extra character key. You wont find any difficulty typing on it.
If you are used to a lager space key on E71 than it will take 1 hour of typing experience to master a new keyboard experience.
You can take it as a proof how good is E63 keyboard that Nokia has chosen E63 keyboard (and not E71) for their new Mega Release E72. Ofcourse it is further modified a bit. But its more or less the same format.
Nokia Phones Fan...., 01 Oct 2009Thanks Rajesh,
All posts are going great. In one post you told us that in october/ november m... moreI am not aware about India.
In Indonesia most awaited phone by Nokia is E72. Which I believe is going to be a complete mobile powerhouse. It is built on foundation of E71 but a complete tansition in specification.
It will be equiped with 600 mhz processor. I tell you this processor is very fast when needed and it automatically steps down its speed to preserve battery. It is expected that the 1500 mAH battery will last for whopping 7 working days. It is also going to boast a 5 mpx camera with Autofocus. Doubled memory and Nokia is going to include with this set a sensored mouse. (D pad is omitted). This mouse is works exactly the way the touch mouse on your laptop.
Although this technology is not very new as it was earlier included with Samsung i8510, Omnia i900 and Sonyericsson included this touch mouse on its Xperia X1. Web browsing is going to be a breeze.
Also E72 has borrowed a keyboard format on E63 and have modified it further to suit larger fingers. Also is included 3.5mm music headphone jack and flashlight.
In Sony Ericsson the most awaited mobile phone is SATIO (IDOU). For the first time in the history of Sony Ericsson they are going to lauch a mobile phone built on S60 V5 (the operating s;ystem you find in NOKIA 5800 and 5530).
It includes the 600 mhz processor with dedicated multimedia graphic chip for gaming, Music and Camera boost.
This mobile will include a 12 mpx camera, huge 3.5 inch touch screen. This mobile is supposed to be a most powerful mobile.
Samsung is launching a few phones with 800 mhz processors. All are slotted for October and November launching.
Keep in touch.

I will herein be with you to call black a black ... morei think u indo guys are damned rich lah, can buy phones anytime as you wish...in cash somemore, u said e63 is a cheap budget phone....but in my country, we have to wait for special offers and promotions for that phone to drop to 0 or 48 dollars and must sign for 24 mths contract plus 24 mths data plan ...nobody likes to sign a contract but i guess that's the only way to get cheap phones....'feel very rich'..'make friend jealous'..'wat talking u?'...doesn't happen here.
Rajesh, can you please make a comparison in typing - e71 vs e63
I saw you wrote something about keys to be more convenient on e63, but what about SPACE BAR, i see that they reduced it's size, in comparison to e71.
I have a dilemma, which phone to buy, but considering the price difference, I think I'll go with the e63
Thanks in advance
E71 phoene the best in world,number 1,e63 also good phoen but not good than e71,e61 good also but e71 camera so not good,my sister have e75 and n97,she working alredy,i school only, hve e71,very happy, so good phoen.
hi, im raven from philippines, all mobile I have but when it comes for internet surfing Nokia E71 is the best especially when I'm using the wireless connection for my access point, thanks nokia.
I am an entusiastic gadget user. I will herein be with you to call black a black and white a white. No Bluffs and No frills.
I live in Indonesia and last few days I made a survey by talking to many E63 and E71 users. Nobody exactly knows the reason they pick their particular model. Most of the users just followed their friends.
The simple answer was "MY FRIEND HAS E63 AND HE OR SHE IS VERY HAPPY WITH IT, SO I ALSO BOUGHT E63"
On asking the same question to E71 user the most common reply was " E71 IS A EXPENSIVE GADGET AND IT LOOKS COOL. I FEEL VERY RICH WHEN I USE IT. MY FRIENDS A JEALOUS OF ME AND WANT TO COPY ME AND BUY THE SAME PHONE. THIS IS A BEST PHONE MAN. GO BUY IT"
But asking them (E71 users )What do you like in this phone and what features do you use that make you feel it is better than other phone or the best phone.
The reply was shocking " IT IS A GOOD LOOKING EXPENSIVE PHONE, OFCOURSE ITS THE BEST. YOU MUST TRY IT YOURSELF, WHY ASK ME"
Now friends, most of the users I feel go by their budgets and choose the gadgets. There are very few who really look into its specifications and really decide precisely whether they are buying the phone for its looks or for its features and if the price is justified.
Have a nice day.
HOTTRINI, 30 Sep 2009the nokia is 71 is the best cell phone i ever came across so far...nokia is the best ever alsoI would appreciate if you could also inform which models you have used earlier. If you say Nokia E71 is the BEST PHONE. what did you like in E71 that make it the best.
This will help others to know more about E71 and they may also would like buy E71 if you can guide them about its performance where it becomes the winner.
Have a nice day.
Rajesh, 29 Sep 2009To Anonymous If you are satisfied with E71 why are you so annoyed. You can go through t... morethe nokia is 71 is the best cell phone i ever came across so far...nokia is the best ever also
Rajesh, 30 Sep 2009Hi Friends, last 2 hours I have been working on both models E71 and E63 to check few other uti... morealright! i won't be so annoyed if u make this kind of comparison in ur earlier posts, instead of saying this one got torchlight and that one doesn't...i got a high powered torchlight in my car, don't need any phone torchlight and to listen to mp3, i got samsung P2 ...great audio quality....in fact, i was looking for iphone initially.....but changed my mind cause i paid nothing for this phone...with contract of course....
good day to u.....am going to iphone forum, been wondering why so people say negative things abt this phone...
Hi Friends, last 2 hours I have been working on both models E71 and E63 to check few other utilities and capabilities comparing them par to par.
I used same operator sim cards on both E63 and E71. I did streaming videos on you tube. Tried skype, Live messenger, web browsing.
Here are my findings -
1) You tube streaming results were same. Maybe the operator speed limits are not yet set for 3,5G. But I found one shocking fact. I streamed both phones for 3 minutes and 23 secs. EXACTLY 3 minutes and 23 secs. Since both my sim cards are based on prepaid plan, I could check the amount of money I paid. 3,5G on E71 costed me 20% more amount of money. Why??? I will find it out with my operator.
2) Web browsing speed on E71 was slightly faster. The pages loaded a bit faster on E71 than E63. So here 3,5G worked very well. But mind it, E63 was never lagging. It was slower definitely but never too slow.
3) Live messenger chatting etc no difference whatsoever. NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL.
4) I downloaded Google, Fring, Snaptu, and various other utilities. Here the download speed of E71 was noticibly faster. Yes, its true. E71 was much faster when it comes to application download speed.
5)GPS on E71 was okay. I have recently used E52. I found E71 GPS very slow when compared to new phones from Nokia like E52. Even my N82 was faster when it comes to GPS. E63 does not have A GPS. So no comparision here.
As I mentioned in my earlier posts E71 wins as a business messenger phone but looses out to E63 in Multimedia features.
But again, I must say Nokia E63 is never lagging in speed when it comes to Messaging, web browsing or other capabilities. It is a neck to neck performance and E71 wins by fraction of seconds.
I would say a few words more -
Nokia E71 looks excellent but pay more and get less.
Nokia E63 looks great pay less and get more.
Enjoy yourself friends.
Go rajesh.. I find your post so helpfull as Im thinking of getting an e series.
Eat your heart out guys..rajesh post are so detailed and well organized.
I believe on his comments better than those who just brag about their phones and justifying their phone is the best,as if its a competition.
Thank you for your post,it helps us a lot.
I have had nothing but problems with an E71. Bought in Feb 09 and now been sent back for the 4th time.
NOT HAPPY at all.
Hi frinds, i bought E71 but the first day i used it my menu key when i press its hanging nothing appears on the screen, but i switch off and on the it works for some days. . .but its a continues thing. . .plz any help ill appreciate.but its a superphone
Can someone elp me how to update the firmware in E71 & If were i can find soem good themes for E71?
Yesterday evening I bought another E71 handset.
The reason being, it occured to my mind maybe the handset I tried had faulty configuration or any kind of hardware or software problem. Because whatever I say about E63 I cannot let go the looks and feel of E71. It looks the cutest device on earth.
Afterall there are hundreds of thousands of satisfied E71 users. So I have made further detailed studies about E71.
My final conclusion-
E71 proved to be a great gadget when it comes to emailing, web browsing, connectivity options (even though infrared port is outdated, still it has been included in E71 creating more options for transfer and receiving of data).
And I am so sad to say this device only stay a winner in Messaging environment. If you are a workholic and spend most of your time in communication than this is definitely a device made for you.
Camera again was a dissapointment. So I was right. Whatever a few of E71 fans say about E71 they cannot change a fact that the camera optics included in E71 have a faulty performance. I tried in everyway to click a good picture but failed.
I dont agree to one of anonymous surfer saying that you have to be a pro to click a picture when you are using a camera phone. I have used best camera phones like SE K800i, K810i, N73music, N82, N95, Samsung i8510 Innov8 and moderate camera phones on E series like E51, E61i, E63 but never came across such a horrible camera. One of the surfer signed as Anonymous said very correctly THE MACHINE CHOOSES ITS MAN. I love it. E71 will definitely choose someone who is a workholic and love to beautiful looks of E71.
Sound quality from speaker was okay but not a good as E63. But through headphones E63 is no match. I tried using adopter (3.5mm to 2.5mm) and tried my Sennheiser headphones on E71 but sound quality was below average. So E71 is purely NO MULTIMEDIA PLEASE WORK ONLY.
So all in all if you need a device that can do only messaging and web browsing for you than go for E71. Looks great but it is definitely scratch prone, no matter what leather case, or silicon case or plastic case you use. As mentioned in my last post NOKIA SHOULD HAVE USED BRUSHED METAL AND NOT GLOSSY METAL WHICH IS FINGERPRINT AND SCRATCH PRONE.
Now whatever capability you get on E71, I mean communication ability (whatelse do you expect from E71), E63 is a fantastic device which has the same capability of communication As E63 has a larger keyboard and a winner in key placements. (the same format you will find in E72.
E63 can be called a messenger device with multimedia features as add on for those who like to work and play. And you will pay less to get it.
The only thing lacking in E63 is GPS and 3.5G (E63 uses only 3G). There are many who will need them and will get them on E71 and there are people who will let go of these features and choose E63 as a Economical option.
Camera on E63 is the same camera included with E61i and E51. It is average and much better than E71.
E63 have additional tool, a Flashlight. This I think is a must for day to day emergency needs. Nokia have also included this feature in E72.
Now it seems I have to let go of my E71 again. I will stick to E63. I know that most of E71 fans will never agree that E63 is a better device but if I could have changed it. We can only expect E72 which is realising next week has a much better performance and we can again get a full featured handset with great looks without any faulty configuration.
Have a nice day.
