Summary: Surfing through the internet is much better through the in built browsers. The pages are entirely displayed and surprisingly the browser of E71 supports flash that lets you view YouTube videos. As the cell phone uses S60 operating system you can easily download several programs including Google Maps and Opera Mini. It also includes GPS that lets you use Google Maps navigation feature to track directions.
Summary: The sound quality is below average and in the busy street you may not hear the interlocutor. It can be helped with the software to change the standard sound settings. The ringtone sound is loud enough, there are no creaks or squeaks, but at times you cannot hear the tune well due to the location of the speaker. The vibro is weak and you can miss it when the phone is in the pocket. The connection quality is typical of modern phones. There are no problems here.
Excerpt: Otterbox recently launched a case for Nokia E71, which got us interested. After the CES 2010 ended, we received the "Otterbox Defender case for Nokia E71". Defender comes packed in a transparent plastic shield showing what is in the box.
Excerpt: Nokia E71 was announced in June 2008. Nokia E71 develops the ideas of the popular models of Nokia E61, and very successfully. Nokia E71 has been recognized as the best phone and best smartphone version of Mobile Choice Consumer Awards 2008.V Nokia E71 has almost everything a person needs, and business people in particular. First, it is QWERTY-keyboard. Despite the small size of the buttons all the testers noted that it is used very conveniently.
The Nokia E71x's performance is a bit of a mixed bag. On one side you have that already solid hardware bolstered with the update to Symbian S60 Feature Pack 2 (v3.2), yet on the other side there is a load of AT&T software that just seems to be all over the place, even more so than the usual display of Nokia/Symbian software and hierarchal menus.
That's not to say that the E71x is slow. It's actually pretty impressive in going from task to task.
Excerpt: Possibly one of the most attractive Nokia phones to have come out of Finland, the Nokia E71 combines solid features with a Qwerty keypad. What we like From the moment we took the E71 out of its box we were impressed by how attractive it is. The E71's slim metal casing looks great and feels robust, its screen is bright and its Qwerty keypad well designed. We would go as far as saying the E71 has one of the best Qwerty keypads we’ve ever used.
