i bought this phone for my birthday. i didn't regret buying it!! it's a great phone.
battery life's great.. i always use the wifi (which is suppose to decrease battery life) but the phone lost only one bar at the end of the day.
the programs are sufficient and are great for business-oriented people. camera kinda sucks--but--that's not what we're after, right? that's what digital cameras are for... hehehe
it's an e90 less the laptop-like appearance, weight and price!!
it's a great phone for me...
Hands down........best phone I ever had. Does everything I want it to do and has great battery life. Camera is fine. For real pics I have a Nikon.
this is really the best phone out and is perfect in every little way.
the camera could do with better firmware to cancel out the purpley lines and it could do with a 3.5mm earphone jack but oh well, we cannot have everything.
the best phone ever and anyone who does not like is silly and needs to get sorted out and go see a doctor asap.
any one who is after buying this phone or getting on contract please do.
as said the best phone ever and superb battery life, it last over 5 days when using texts and few calls a day.
its very good smart buisness phone but the camera is not up to the mark has to be improved, battery performance is impressive. overal a good phone except the camera options.
Can someone confirm whether I can change the ID3 tags (Artist, Title etc) in the media player of the E71
Currently I'm using the E51 and that doesn't allow changing those tags
it is a nice phone, im little disappointed with the smallish keys and the smallish screen, with a screen like e61i, i would keep it...

I've had this phone for 2weeks and the battery life is not impressive. It doesn't last even 2 days...and that's with light usage. (39 minutes talk time, no gps, no games, no radio, 3g off 99% of the time) Are there any recommended settings to extend battery life?
Chizzle, 09 Sep 2008I am thinking of Purchasing the E71, my boss has it and as I use SYNC alot I would like to kno... moreYeah I had similar concerns whether or not it would sync.
I bough my E71 two week ago and it works fine..
i buy this phone.
for the first time nokia made a good looking phone !
the e71 looks solid and heavy
the body is in metal very nice
the screen is very good
the keyboard is a bit problem because small and in greece there are 2 prints for greek and latin letters but nokia printed the latin in dark blue very difficult to see
there are many applications and very easy to download from nokia or elsewhere
gps seems dead or very slow
the camera is very very bad
but this is a very nice phone and not too expensive for the quality
really it is a surprise because i own also a n96 impossible to use because too slow and full of bugs but the e71 is very good compared to the cheap built plastic of n96
my friend and I has this phone, and we are little bit disappointed with the quality of the camera, hope nokia will do something about it. The battery doesn't really last long, for like less than 12hrs. Small keypad for big people. I'll give 4 out 10 rating.

After many conversations with Nokia I now have to return my phone to them for them to "fix it". Posting being at my expense even though there has been a major problem with in the warrantee period. Nokia Customer care sucks... I will sell this phone as soon as I get it back and get me something that is more reliable.

I have check every feature to make sure nothing mayor is running unnecessarily and I have found no solution either. PLEASE HELP
I bought this phone just 2 days back and I just love it. The only thing is that the back of the phone (camera lens area) always remains hot and the battery is getting fully drained in a single day usage and I spend more time looking at it rather then using it. I am really disappointed. Can someone help me to solve this problem. I bought it very expensive and its not possible for me to get back to Nokia people for a replacement. PLS HELPPPPPPPPP :( :(
Ramesh Lalwani., 07 Sep 2008HI! This E71 Phone is good, but keypad is small for a adult man & screen too small for the pri... morethe e71 has a sensor so that the keypad lights only come on when it is darker. if you want them to be on more you need to adjust the light sensor in 'display'
kitch, 24 Jul 2008First This phone seems promising.Business phone has front panel made of plastic.... It looks like steel but in fact it's only cheap plastic. i'm dissapointed.
Anybody is facing heat up issues with the mobile as am facing. It gets heat up in just 10 minute call. Otherwise this is an excellent phone in terms of feature/performance/speed.
