I am using this mobile just for a week.on the 3rd day I lost the memory card cover on the side.It is so loosly fitted rhat just a mere touch causes it to be separated.so i opened the nereby cover and preserved it in another place.Another big problem is that i cannot see any online or downloaded video clips as the screen shows"not supported" so can any body help me?
I currently own an E71 and enjoy it tremendously; it has to be said, however, that the image quality of photos or videos is an area of opportunity.
Except for image quality, the phone shows strong performance in all other aspects: the E71 is slim and beautifully designed; supports email, web browsing and even GPS; has all relevant business applications; has all multimedia functions; supports all types of connections. Blackberry's just been given a solid run for its money!
Ayaan, 17 Aug 2009Hey friends. I am opting to buy this phone. I jus have one problem. People using this phone pl... morethe keys are a little small for my liking,and i have small fingers! i often hit the wrong one when typing and have to go back and change it.
apart from that the phone is not too bad.good if you want a phone to use like a tiny pc,not so great if you want personalising features (its a girly thing)
i got it in the white and it looks pretty good.
the camera is ok,although the flash has a tendancy to leave a milky blur over your pics no matter how close or far away you are.
overall a 6 1/2 out of 10......
hope that helps

thanks guys.. he insists that its (the nokia e71)the real thing even though its made in korea.. i hear that they are mass-produced in dubai, i don't know how true that is though.. and its still costing about £210!! i just do not want an inferior product when i paid for the real thing.. so please tell me, are the ones mad in korea same as those made in finland.. i definitely know they have a different firmware and i can upgrade, right?
E71 is really a great phone.
I owned it for 3 months, I have no problems in it except for one thing.
My phone restarts itself while im texting or sometime while i'n listening on music. It happened twice a week (barely).
The current Firmware of my phone is 210.21.006, do you think i need to upgrade it to firmwware 300.X.X.X to fix this?

Ayaan, 17 Aug 2009Hey friends. I am opting to buy this phone. I jus have one problem. People using this phone pl... morei have been using this phone since 2008 october.. its a really good phone.. u wil get used to the keypad .. not necesarily u hav to use nails... but u can hav a look at the E72 if u willing to wait. the specs r pretty good for the E72 .. not yet released though
Ayaan, 17 Aug 2009Hey friends. I am opting to buy this phone. I jus have one problem. People using this phone pl... moreYou dont have to worry about using nails to press the keys. It would have been true had the keys been flat. But, the keys are convex and you can differentiate the keys aa you move your fingers over them. Like I said before, in half an hour you would be typing as fast as any one of us. Just take the plunge and I can assure you that you would love it.
Ayaan, 17 Aug 2009Hey friends. I am opting to buy this phone. I jus have one problem. People using this phone pl... moreThe keypad is quite comfortable and you don't have to use your nails. My thimbs are fuite fat and I don't find it hard at all to type. I'm also a frequent texter who sends about 100 to 150 messages per day. Don't use your nails on the keypad. It might spoil it.
Hey friends. I am opting to buy this phone. I jus have one problem. People using this phone pls give me ur feed back. As the keys are small and very close, v have to use our nails to operate. I am a frequent user of SMS. I am worried whether using of nails on the keys will have an adverse effect??? problems related to colour removal or the digits or alphabets removal. Any such problem.?? Pls let me know.. Your early reply will be highly appreciated..
Precy, 17 Aug 2009Nokia Eseries are good in all aspect. If you cannot afford it dont discourage others from buying.For your information I have been using a nokia E71 since last september. I don't care if someone buys one or not, its their choice and their money. I discourage people from buying this phone because certain people wants to use this phone for multimedia purposes which this device isn't build for.
It is a known fact that the camera is not in the same league as the N series devices. The performace is poor both in image mode and video recording mode. Even GsmArena admits it. And if someone buys one and they are not happy; they go and post comments everywhere the camera is bad, the sounds are not good as something else the screen isn't big enough etc. etc. And those comments make the ones who really need a good business phone to aviod buying this phone.
People are spending their hard earned money on their things and if someone is going to make a mistake and regret we should help them to not to make the mistake. I have seen so many people who still regrets buying the wrong product for their needs. Even I have been in their shoes and I know how it feels.
And finally remember, these forums are there to share our experiences as well as to help others make the correct choice. Just becasue someone owns one and they like it and accepts as an all rounder, others will not share the same feeling with that person.
The e71. . . .Just 1 word,INCREDaBLE!! . . . . .And i wil say no comparison. . . Not even by far.
