How far better nokia E71 will be than E51, except qwerty and .36 images bigger screen, at double price? Will it be wise (or just foolish !) to upgrade to E71 from E51?
And even for a new buyer, considering the huge price difference, buying which one (between E51 & E71) will be a wise decision? Guys, please help me out! I am utterly confused !! Thanks a lot in advance.
Two major short falls at least 2.6" Screen and Symbian OS 9.3 SP 3.2
,,,It seems gonnna be a best seller...!!! I wandering if Nokia solved the sound quality isuee on this model .. I mean considering the E51 which is a superb device but whit a mono speekers built in,,,
Prosenjitz, 30 Jun 2008Hi,

SAR got nothing to do with the OS features. It is most related to the antenna power and its placement within the phone. Most of the later smartphones have a slightly higher value including the E71. This probably got to do with the need to support more transport frequency bands which we the users wanted.
How far away do you use your phone matters most?
seen in a post in net that E71 is already selling in Mumbai at Nokia Priority Dealers at an MRP of Rs. 22,700!! Is it true?
And regarding SAR ISSUE, if the OS with Feature Pack 1 is responsible for high SAR Count, should we avoid the phones with this FP-1? Advice please.
Edwin, 27 Jun 2008@sue, if this phone is soooo good how come the E61i had bb connect and this one does not? Is t... moreThe BB connect in E61i has been replaced by the built-in GPS tog with the A-GPS function not forgetting the FM radio. In my country, we do not need a BB connect phone to connect to Blackberry. In actual fact, the BB connect allows to you access Blackberry from our local network services with the use of non-Blackberry phones. So now do you prefer d BB connect or built-in APS? Maybe Nokia has change it in view of this. Go and half a look at the E71 in the phone shop. I assure you will fall in love with it at first sight as many have done. Good Luck!
this one will be great phone.

However, there are many phones with similar values like E71. Actually the E71 and E51 actual RF is not that high but these models have the antenna position nearer to the earpiece.
For user, the real issue is how much you TALK on the earpiece for the phone. The answer to this question is user dependent and phone dependent.
A music player phone is heared thru the headphone so it is where on your body you pocket it which matters. As SAR really measures the harm of the RF on body issues next to it.
A bluetooth earpiece has much little SAR so it is probably a good investment for users with long conversation.
My E51 to me is more of a surf/email/text device so I am not worried about placing it near my body.
I think it is pointless to debate about just the SAR values without thinking about how one uses the device because obviously today the cellphone is no longer just a phone for talking but a multi-function device.
nokia has out done then selves this design out shines black berry n motorolla smart phone hand sets by far
I want this phone. It has a good features especially the autofocus features. I have a question, will it be better to buy this or the upcoming PDA phone by Sony Ericsson, the xperia x1? Thanks..
It is significant the difference between low or high SAR value phones.
RF causing not only tumors!
E71 is a small microwave oven - the decreased power like 0.7 W/Kg makes a huge difference.
But, you know in the 50´s and 60´s or even 70´s some people argued that smoking has no unhealthy effects.
In the 80´s same thing with second-hand smoking.
Today, I hope it is obvious this issue.
If you want you can wait a few decades, but for many people it is obvious and proven that around Ghz frequencies extremely harmful.
But, you have the freedom to ignore the facts - for a while at least until they catch up with you.
Just to be fair :)
Two SE fans (2Ams, PGcX) keep giving me hard time at the G900 forum. I have made the point that some of the SE phones SAR value is high.
They upset that I did not inform you about the E71 SAR value. So here are the values.
They promised to come over :) - be nice to them! Have a nice day!
To be fair and nice here are the numbers:
To all potential users:
The several studies demonstrated that RF by cell phones significantly increases the chance of tumor growth and SAR values make a different!
Nokia E71 1.40 W/Kg
G900 1.39 W/Kg
C902 1.34 W/kg
W890 1.37 W/kg
N95 0.4-0.6 W/Kg
Samsung i900 Omnia 0.70 W/kg
The difference between phones 50-100% or even more!!!!!
That means some phones are 100% more ´toxic´-saying it simply!
US legal limit is 1.6W/kg - SE values are pretty close to legal limits. And you can be sure that the limit was influenced by the cell phone lobby - not too low!!!!!
Have a nice day! :)

The E71 is better in most aspects, but the fatal (and utterly stupid) decision made by Nokia to use a much smaller display makes me look elsewhere for my next phone. In the 3-3.5G wireless world, video services is of the utmost importance. I expect to use my phone for mobile TV and video conferences, not to mention viewing e-mail attachments (word, excel, powerpoint, ...) A display of 3" or above is essential!
Nokia, wake up!
Screen smaller than keypad area its looks inverted.Why pack 1 old symbian version n end 2008. Nokia creats facelifts but its flash and video quality are its hallmarks.
Basically its E51 processor specs except cam iMp more,nothing much.Surely by chrismas we might see its born,lots of freezes and hangs till two or more updates flashed by 1st Qtr 2009.
I saw E71 today. It is just amazing. Pictures don't do just for this beauty. Stainless steel finish. And soooo slim. And works fast too... I am now in line for one.
@sue, if this phone is soooo good how come the E61i had bb connect and this one does not? Is that an upgrade or a downgrade????
stringer, 26 Jun 2008Aaaargh!!! no BB connect, this is just a peace of junk!!!Check this Nokia website
There is no comparison bet E61i & E71. The latter is so much better in every aspect. Pls go thru d specification & u will find out. If ppl think differently, they r either illiterate or just come from history. Everything hs been upgraded except that it is smaller. This is due to the response of the complains that E61i is too bulky. Nokia listens, then give you what you asks for. If you r looking for a good phone and email alot, then this is the best phone available in the market. Nokia is the top producer of 'user friendly' phones. No point getting a phone that is troublesome in messaging. For nokia phones, u can hv access to anywhere u want to use. All u hv to do is make shortcuts, just press the button, you are there oredi. if a fren give you a number to contact, & instead of writing down that number, all u hv to do is press an option, then all alphabets will be gone except the number, then u just save it. Fantastic, isn't it? There r many other ways of easy within reach buttons. Saves you lots of time and trouble. Keep it up, Nokia!
