i got this 7 days and its awesome...i tot the keypad was way to small for my finger but u ONLY need ur thumb...thats all...plus its not really pricey if compare to other pda or smartphone. refresh rate is really fast.. the first point that lure me to buy e71 is the slimnest phone..wow..its a great phone with all the 3g, gps, document viewer but the picture is only decent but what the heck..its a businees phone...the battery is superb...when i fully charge it, e71 can last for 4 days with average 20-30 calls per day not including 100's of sms...
i sold my iphone 8gb to my friend to get this...
Guys im writing this with my new E71 and honestly IT IS AWESOME. I cannot believe im actually loving this better than my TyTN II. To be honest im always looking for the perfect phone akl the time and this Nokia is a revelation. And you know what? I used to hate big time Nokia with all N series gadget but this one?... Speechless... Brilliant... Not slow like all windows mobile... Sexy... Dam it i need to go back to bed, im working in 3hours but don't regret that the phone kept me awake... Full of suprise. down side? I have big fingers and i suprise myself how quick i can type with, i had 4 mistype only writing this review to u guys. Anyway goodnight ^_^
i was a nokia user before. now i'm using SE p1i because of the keyboard and the touchscreen.
i think the E71 is a big improvement over e51. hope they make a touchscreen nokia. now this phone is way better than the N series of nokia coz i'm getting tired and bored about their features. it's basically the same and nothing is new.
i hope they continue making intersting phone like the e71. i already have tried the e51 and i think its cool. the qwerty keypad of e71 is a very big plus for us lovers of this kind of keypad. keep up the good work about the e71 only.
about the n series, what's next???? M SERIES????
Specs are awesome however some users might find the key pad not easy to use BUT using the predictive text option is the best way to type. The software management is way to better than any of the communicator series of the Sony Ericsson P910i series.
I have always used a communicator and the last nokia instrument used was the 9500, I wanted to buy the E90 BUT was advised by my Nokia Dealer to opt for the E71. Its been a week i bought a E71 and to be honest the E71 is a SUBSTITUTE or per say REPLACEMENT for the E90.The E71 is a KICK ASS invention to kick the E90.
Techy's and IT savvy peps' who do not like BULKY phones but still want the communicator in a ZIP mode..close your eyes and buy the E71....
not everyone can use a such a smart phone...
so shut up....it's the best...:P
i m a sales advisor and now lg has lunch scrach proof class in display and every body is impresed so try to make in nokia
Can the GPS for E71 be used with Route 66 instead of Nokia Maps ? Which phone GPS uses Route 66 ?
I dont have any S60 phone here right now but if my memory is right. I think you need to go to Tool => Setting -> Active display and then change watever application for right button or left button or up, down, left and right. Hope it help
Best phone i ever see. Very good keyboard great UI experience.
Very slim on the pocket and the gps navigation works great.
i have a big problem.. when i select 'home screen - basic' i would like to set up the 'selection key' to go straight to my 'inbox' (right now i can only select 'messeging')
how do i do that?
can anyone help??????
Gman, 13 Jul 2008I don't buy touch-screen at all.Maybe for people like me who want things reliable and accurate... moredo you need to subscribe to the phone provider service to get GPS function? does it have voice direction?
I am extremely happy with the features. The battery life is excellent. The phone is sleek and very user friendly. I would recommend this to my friends.
perfect, perfect! not that crapy and with no-auto-focus camera from my e61i :D
For those who want to use blackberry connect ,just install the version for E90 it will work.
Camera quality is not that good, but it is a business phone anyway. A fun feature it has is business card reader which works great. Just snap a pic of the card and the phone fills in all contact info for you in the phonebook. Overall by far the best Nokia phone I have had so far(number 8 for me)
