    • The good:
      excellent QWERTY keyboard, reliable connectivity, Internet browsing friendly, one of the slimmest smartphones
    • The bad:
      disappointing camera, crowded keypad
    If you’re looking for a quality phone with the perfect QWERTY keyboard, Nokia E71 is the best choice. The buttons are rubberized and it being smaller than its predecessor, the E61, Nokia E71 proves to be easy on the hands. The phone’s light sensor feature adds to the keyboard’s beauty by proving the backlight just when you need it. With a mere 114 x 57 x 10 mm dimension and 127g weight, the handheld has a commendable design for a for a Symbian S60 smartphone. The design gives you the feel of its good metal built but it’s either you like it or you love it. It’s one of the slimmest smartphones in the market but you might not be a big fan of a crowded keypad, a mere 2.36" display and that it also lacks a distinguishing factor. The right side of the handheld houses the two volume controls, and a 2.5 mm standard audio jack while on the left side, you will find a mini USB port, a microSD slot that can accommodate up to 8GB, and an infrared port. The gadget also provides easy navigation with four shortcut keys -- home, calendar, contacts and messages – and a square D-pad. At the top, you will find the loudspeaker and the red power key. At the bottom is the usual Nokia lanyard eyelet and the charger port. Nokia E71 offers excellent connectivity via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, infrared, a 3.6Mbps HSDPA 3G, and USB. Data transfers are proven to be fast and reliable. Internet browsing is one of the phone’s strength as it lets you move around the page in the most convenient way possible. It is also commendable that it supports Java and Flash content. The handheld’s camera is quite a disappointment. There is no dedicated camera button and no camera lens protection while the LED flash has little use. The quality of pictures is also a weakness. The noise is high, and colors and details don’t reflect well in the pictures. However, with manual white balance, ISO, various camera effects, among others, the settings are a treat to snappers.

      I have had it for about 12 months on Optus but I bought it unlocked so use it with Vodaphone pre-paid when overseas and Telstra pre-paid if i want to. I have it connected to WLAN in my house and in my office; I use GPS, maps and Google; I use the email facility and bluetooth connection to my PC and it acts as my diary. It takes good photos which I sent to my PC. I use it as my diary and as a reminder for meetings, events, birthdays etc and I use it to access the web, especially for aviation weather. I find the search for web site a bit of a problem, but that may be lack of investigation on procedure on my part. Almost every day, I think what a wonderful unit it is. I think that the aerial may be in the base and that sometimes when I am holding it, I interfere with the signal, especially if it is already weak, which is quite annoying and frustrating but I have largely learned to hold it at the top. Love it.

      No, it is very expensive cost.

      This is an excellent phone, although the 2.5mm headset socket is an unfortunate detraction. It is almost impossible to identify a headset eqipped with a 2.5mm plug available in Australia.
