"Excellent phone for business and communication."4.5 starson by Dalecosby
Pros: Very slim. Very Solid. Decent camera and great camera for a phone.
Good selection of built in software. GPS, bluetooth, wifi and 3G all built in as well as infrared. Syncs with Macs and iTunes.
Cons: The camera could be better but it is not bad for a phone. Real player does not have a good interface but there are 3rd party solutions. the webcam on front does not work with US carriers. Has only a 2.5 MM plug. a larger 3.5 would be nice for music.
Summary: Over all this is a great phone. It is no iPhone for entertainment uses but then the iPhone is no E71 for work needs. I ultimately decided to go with the e71 and my iPod for the best of both worlds.
The hardware is very solid and the camera is one of the best I have seen in a phone, short of the N95, though it is still lacking compared to a dedication digi cam.
The bundled office software is great and the excel program is very usable for viewing my schedule spreadsheets and also basic stuff such as shopping lists etc.
The music player was a big surprise. It is almost as good as an iPod and the built in podcast app is great for downloading new episodes on the go.
I have been amazed with the wifi performance and I find myself using it often at home for basic web and chatting.
The keyboard is very accurate, though I do not have particularly large hands. It is better than the blackberries and WM devices I tried, though that is a more personal opinion.
The takes decent pics but will not replace your main camera, though the video is phenomenal for a phone, taking YouTube quality video.
The built in GPS was a but disappointing to me but I am used to using a Garmin dedicated GPS so I would not buy this phone rather than buying a GPS if you intend to use a GPS often.
The built in browser is OK but for the most part I prefer to use Opera Mini, though for things such as online banking you will need to use the the Nokia browser.
Overall, I would reccoment this device over any other qwerty device I have seen but depending on your uses you might prefer one of the touchscreen phones such as the iPhone or the Google Phone from TMobile.
