This review is from: Nokia E71 SIM-Free Mobile Phone - Grey Steel (Electronics)Work have just finnished replacing the e50 and e61i handsets with these. So far I'm very impressed: battery life is very good with a full charge lasting several days with reasonable usage for emails, calls and music player. Best thing is how much faster it is to start & use apps.
Keyboard is good but could do with being a little bigger as its a bit too fiddly typing with your thumb nails. Still its way better than the e61 for email & texts and its possible to read larger docs with it
Looks like a standard simbian phone, with the usual out of the box apps & features. The home screen is well layed out and the ability to switch between home and work profiles could be useful.
Box has usual manuals, CDs & cables and earphones, plus a case which isnt much cop
All in all, for the cash its very impressive. 4.5 stars & really big improvement on the e50 and e61
Why not 5*s?
It uses yet another mini usb varient (minor irritation)
Keyboard is a little too fiddly
Music player pauses for 1/2 a sec everytime an email arrives
