Nokia E71 Mobile Phone Review

Editors Review


The Nokia E71 is probably the best equipped of all the Nokia smartphones. It has a remarkable range of features for its compact size. Connectivity is superb with the Nokia E71 mobile phone having every single connectivity option available today. The connectivity features in brief include; 3G with HSDPA 3.6Mbps support, Wi-Fi, 2.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP support, microUSB v2.0, Provider-independent VoIP support and Infrared port!

The retail package for the  Nokia E71 bundles the phone with Nokia’s fastest and smallest charger, 2GB microSD card, leather carrying case, leather lanyard, CD with PC sync software, handsfree headset and of course the manuals and guides.

It’s not the most compact of phones - blame the full QWERTY keyboard - however dimensions of 114 x 57 x 10 mm with a weight of 127g is still pretty impressive and the E71 slips into almost any pocket surprisingly easy. The E71 even looks slicker than many other messenger devices.

The screen is 2.36 inches with 16 million colours and QVGA, with excellent contrast and crisp graphics the performance is especially good in bright sunlight.

The standard on-board 120Mb is pretty good and with the included 2Gb microSD this will probably be enough for most of us. However if you really need it the E71 will accept an 8Gb microSD card.

A standard feature on the E71 is “remote wipe”. Basically if your E71 ever gets stolen, you simply send an SMS message with a special code and all sensitive data on your phone is wiped. it does not help to recover the phone but at least the theif won’t have any of your personal data.

When it comes to email, the E71 goes straight to the top of the class! Virtually all email formats are supported including: Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email solution, along with System Seven and Visto Mobile.

Although the music capabilities of the E71 are probably not a major concern for the typical buyers, the E71’s music abilities are great. With MP3, AAC, eAAC+ and WMA formats supported along with M3U playlists and track filtering by artist, album, genre and composer, the E71  provides the same music capabilities as other smart phones using the Symbian S60 music player.
