I picked the E71x by Nokia due to their reputation for good sound quality and user friendliness. I wanted a Smart Phone that was easy to learn, fun to use, fully functional, and sanely priced. Was determined to keep my search under $200, and since my very first cellphone was a Nokia -- way back in the day -- I found a perfect test subject on eBay (very slightly used for $170). You might even do better on CraigsList.
On the plus side: (1) nice looking phone -- very Blackberry-like in appearance; (2) fully qwerty key board -- easy to maneuver and type; (3) keys, while seeming very tight and close together, actually are amazingly easy to work on; (3) better and more consistent call quality (AT&T signal) than any other phone I have used (I change phones frequently due to fickleness); (4) Nokia's PC Suite is simple and straightforward -- synching is fast and foolproof; (5) battery life is exceptional -- even with lots of calls and texts, my battery lasts 3-4 days without recharging; (6) it's really fun to use -- tempting to just play with -- you can put your whole life on it (it will take up to an 8gb mini SD -- rumors are rampant that it can take more, but 8gb is all I have now; (7) the SD card is easy to access from the side, so you don't have that annoying task of dismantling the entire phone to get to the memory card; (8) the screen is small but images are crisp and sharp -- and refreshingly readable in sunlight -- a genuine bonus, for sure; (9) pictures look great and videos transfer easily and are easy on the eyes; (10) songs sound good -- listening to music on my phone is not really my thing -- I have a Nano for that -- but in a pinch, the sound quality is fully acceptable.
On the minus side: (1) a really heavy phone: I moved from a Blackberry 8100 Pearl, which I loved and is lighter, to a small brick, but it doesn't really feel all that heavy in the pocket -- barely noticeable, actually; (2) the Symbian curve is a little weird when you begin -- not quite as intuitive as the Blackberry or even the simplistic Motorola Razor, but it takes a few days to adjust; (3) a few too many layers/levels to perform simple tasks -- shortcuts eliminate this, but it takes some studied practice to learn them -- definitely worth the effort, but the phone seems unnecessarily cluttered; (4) most definitely screams for a protective skin -- the weight alone makes you paranoid about dropping the thing on the nearest sidewalk -- I got a cheap but effective black silicone wrap. It's now easy to grip and difficult to let slip. Highly recommended, though -- Nokia should really ship the phone with one of these.
Overall, a great tool/toy for calling, texting, and e-mail. Not so much for internet use -- okay but it's certainly not an iPhone -- but if all you need is the basic 3, you'll be delighted. Might stay with this phone for a while.
In short: *** Get the E71, not the E71x. ***
The Nokia E71 series is simply awesome! I am really happy with the phone despite the monumental issues I have with the x version. Ergonomics, screen quality, sound quality, processor speed, WAN search, GPS, connect and reception (are awesome!), durability, applications, blue tooth functionality (fantastic!) and camera are all awesome.
That said, the AT&T x version has major annoyances I would NOT have purchased if I knew them before buying.
1. To get a phone number from phone book you must do the following:
a. Unlock the keypad
b. Click the phone book
c. Enter a name and numbers selection appear
d. If you chose a name incorrectly you must click back and then re- enter the name.
Get it? First off, I should not have to click and wait for the phone book to open, normal qwerty phones allow for search entry without clicking on phone book and waiting for it to open (4 or 5 seconds waiting time). Secondly, if you select the wrong name and click Back, it doesn't remember the name you entered. You have to type it AGAIN! Do all that while you are driving and you will eventually crash or get a ticket. E71 does not have these faults. E71x does. There should be nothing past step b. All I should have to do is unlock then type the name like the E71 does. The typed name should be REMEMBERED in case I go back. AT&T Jerks.
2. I legitimately had AT&T unlock the phone (after contract they unlock it upon request). But you cannot access the internet from any other provider. I unlocked it because I went to Europe and wanted to use it there. Phone GMS works, internet will not. It will only hook up with AT&T internet service. They lock you from using the profile to connect with the GSM internet. AT&T Jerks!
3. Tons and tons and tons and tons of useless apps that you have to pay for to use and cannot delete. The phone is loaded with all this crappy software and you cannot use it unless you pay for it. You cannot delete it if you don't want it. That is a jerky move. Tons!!!! Did I mention that? They just get in the way and you can't move /hide the majority of them to another folder so you have to go through them at all times to get to your own software you actually want and purchased. I don't want or need this crap software. AT&T Jerks!!
4. Can't change the screen layout, you must use only the AT&T crap desktop layout. E71 let's you use any version downloaded, they give you many nice useful option AND you can customize. Why the heck did AT&T get rid of that? AT&T Jerks!
5. No radio! They removed the radio! I like to listen to the radio. The E71 has this feature. The E71x hardware does have it technically. The AT&T version removed the software and won't allow it back in (I tried). They must want you to pay for their jerkass radio services I guess. AT&T Jerks!
6. I can't stress how crappy that phone book issue is, I am going to repeat it here. It reminds me of the crappiness every time I want to make a call.
That sums up the bad parts you will not find with the E71. Being that it does function like an E71 for the other important areas (noted in the first paragraph) I will give this device a 'Good' rating, I am still enjoying it. That is a testament to how awesome the important noted features are.
Pay the extra 20 bucks for the E71.
PS, Credit due: I purchased this on ebay, called AT&T to unlock it. They did it without any problem.
After coming from the Nokia E62, the only phone I was interested in, when it was time to upgrade, was the E71x. Nokia has never let me down and this phone is pretty great.
I haven't had any trouble with dropped calls and the sound clarity is very good while on calls. The speakerphone also works rather well.
The phone is so amazingly thin and is comfortable in the hand. It's very light weight.
The qwerty keyboard feels much tighter than my E62 but texting is still rather easy.
The layout is rather uncomplicated and allows quick access to your calendar, clock, email, etc. Profiles allow for different settings such as outdoor, normal, meeting, etc that can be customized to your liking with different tones.
Web surfing is very quick on the 3G network. I haven't had any problems with page delays.
Unfortunately, AT&T has many loaded apps that waste memory and space. The majority must be purchased in order to use them. The one neat app, however, is cellular video. This app allows you to watch recorded video of breaking news, soap operas, tv shows, etc. There is a search box to find just about anything you might want to watch. This app is free as long as you have the data plan on the phone.
The only real issue with this phone is dust under the screen. It can get terribly annoying making it hard to read your screen. Even with a screen protector, the dust gets in. This is an easy fix with a T5 screwdriver. Remove a few screws, remove the screen, dust off, and replace screen. How often this will need to be done depends on the phone. I find myself doing this process once every few weeks. I hope Nokia will find a fix for this issue.
Overall, this phone is very cool and definitely worth the money. I'm truly loving it. As I said earlier, Nokia has never let me down and makes one heck of a smartphone. I highly recommend this phone.
Where to start? I love all of the features on the E71x. While you can find all of the specs on any search, I am going to note some of the things I love about it.
First, I love how responsive it is. I can open email, web browsing, texting, address book, anything I can think of quick.
Second, I love all of the apps I have found for my phone. I have found that this phone can support emulators for software/games and works it perfectly. There is even an app to use the phone as a remote control for your television. Although I have not tried it, I thought it would be worth mentioning as an example of the E71x's diverse possibilities. I do have an app on my phone that uses GPS to calculate my distance of walking off calories. I also have one that turns my phone into a wi-fi hotspot for my laptop if needed.
Third and last one I will mention is the upgrade price. If you shop around you will find if you are eligible for an upgrade, this expensive phone can be found really cheap when renewing a contract.
I know some people will say that their phone will do everything I have mentioned and will do what the specs show when searching, but I can only say as a personal user, this is the best phone I have owned.
I bought this phone last week and received it today, one week later. Ebay rocks and the seller, being in another state, was great keeping me up to date on my order status through MyEbay messages.
I decided to buy this phone on Ebay because I got it for a better price than anywhere else I had compared to. Also to avoid additional "smartphone fees" through my provider. Even w/out paying the "smartphone fees" this phone has WiFi capabilities that allows online access.
The phone features are fantastic and comparable to a Blackberry or any other smart phone out there. It is an elegant and slick phone. The only feature that bothers me is the physical width of the phone even though it is slim in thickness. My recommendation would be to take a look at any phone in person before purchasing any phone online. My bad- Next Time! But I can overlook that because this is a good phone & Nokia makes great well crafted phones.
