Reliable work phone
Member Name: renegade852
Advantages: Good battery life, nice email client, nice icon layout
Disadvantages: Frustrating keyboard
I currently use this mobile phone as my work phone. Whilst it isn't the fanciest phone on the market, it will certainly do the jobs that the likely buyer is wanting to undertake.
This is certainly a phone meant for business over pleasure. The email client is very good, though the settings might take a few minutes to get right! It has a nice calendar to which you can add entries and reminders. This phone has Wifi so you will be able to browse over wireless internet, and also has 3G capability so you can browse on the go. The browser is fairly simplistic...but it does the job if you just want to check the news!
The camera is quite nice for a 3.2MP camera. There are Maps installed on it and GRS to be able to get about. There are also nice notifications at the bottom of the screen when you have missed calls/texts etc.
Now for the down sides...
I think that the QWERTY keyboard is annoying and frustrating. I mostly end up hitting the wrong buttons and occasionally spend minutes trying to remember how to get the "!" symbol! (You can see that I didn't write this review on the E71 ;) ) The Ovi Store leaves alot to be desired in my opinion...if you want a phone for apps then I would say this definitely isn't it....stick to an Android or iOS device.
But back to the positives...the E71 has good battery life. It has a nice shiny metallic finish and feels nice when you hold it.
I would say overall that the E71 is ideal for the businessman who needs a mobile phone with some additional features, but certainly won't satisfy more techincal whizzes that want this to do more than just be a mobile phone.
Summary: Nice businessman's phone
