The e71 is a great business phone. What I need are:
1) Good radio reception. I hate dropped calls or bad sound quality
2) Good email support (both Exchange and webmail)
3) Long battery life. Its useless with a flat battery!
The e71 is great at all 3. I thought I lived in a poor reception area as my last phone was frequently dropping or missing calls (it was an htc phone). As soon as I started using the e71, I hardly ever had a problem.
I use my e71 for work email a lot. The company has MS... (read more)

It's a fantastic phone.
1) it has adobe pdf reader (check blackberry, check nokia n series)
2) it has a keyboard (see iphone, samsung galaxy - I beat anyone typing on the keypad)
3) the browser is EASY to use. (see blackberry)
Some minor scratches on the screen after it skidded across a gravel patio (my fault) but other than that NOTHING has broken and it has pretty much performed just as well as any other phone I've owned (read more)

If you have the misfortune of getting the version of the E71 supplied by Three, it has access to the 2G network blocked. So when outwith an area of 3G coverage, the phone wont work.
It will burn through the battery and heat up its rear metal panel trying to find a signal that is not there and if spending time out of 3G areas the battery can flatten in under eight hours.
You can still make calls if you take an unlocked 2G phone with you, as this means shoving the sim in it can work on 2G. ... (read more)

I'd suggest you go for the E71. After all, what good is a "business" phone without a QWERTY? I've been using it for six months, and it hasn't given me any sort of problems. The phone looks stunning (pictures don't do it justice; you'd have to see for real), it's solidly built, it comes packed with virtually every connectivity option, the QWERTY is really good, the battery life is great, in-call sound quality is excellent, and it works great as an e-mail device. The downside is the absolutely... (read more)

I love this this phone!!
Looks great in Steel and white,Easy to use and has great funtionality.
Camrea is 3mp but is very poor in low light even with the flash on.
The Music play is good, I expanded he memory to 4GB and have room for plenty of music.
The Radio is handy too, but there is an internet radio App thats absoluty brilliant, with 100's of station to choose from.
I took the phone out on contract with three. I only get an intermitent signal so I can rarley make calls from my have and... (read more)

I have seen a review of this phone first at CNET and I think it was an amazing phone with good features under the hood. The QWERTY pad I think was a bit like blackberry phone but I guess they look comfortable.
My cousin bought this phone and she was quite happy with it. I've used it for a while and was impressed with its features and overall functionality.
The only downside is its price however, knowing Nokia, I guess its normal (read more)

This is, by leaps and bounds, the best smartphone I have owned to date. The display is bright and large, battery live is excellent and the full QWERTY keyboard is a double-whammy as it does away with the multiple button pushing of old and predictive text is a thing of the past!
Upon viewing the E71 appears larger than most other phones as a result of the 39 buttons required for writing texts/emails, but the added width is in fact minimal, and not noticeable when it's in your pocket. Also... (read more)

The Nokia E71 keys are very small, and number keys are not separate. while writing a message, each time you need to type a number we have to press shift key.poor grip so easy to slip from your hand.
camera quality is good. (read more)

Best smartphone I've ever owned! Features are incredible and almost unlimited because of all the apps that can be installed. IMHO it beats the iPhone hands down because of the Nokia E71's ability to run multiple apps simultaneously. S60 can be a bit hard to get used to for a first time S60 user. Love the QWERTY keyboard and the overall feel of the phone. (read more)

I have now owned and used my E71 for over a year. I bought it within weeks of its launch in Saudi Arabia. I this time I only needed to phone technical support once (and it had been my fault no the phones')
I use Nokia Maps/GPS on my worldwide travels and have found them to be often more accurate than many other sat nav systems. (Especially around Middle East and Europe)
The only negative is the Camera. Like a number of Nokia phones I have owned over the last 10 years i remain unimpressed... (read more)

I am too a difficult pleaser in the mobile phone world. I have tried all makes and many models and have to confess this Nokia E71 is the best phone I have ever owned.
A big bonus unlike many phones is that it came with a case, not a huge issue but often another 'expense' when buying an expensive phone.
It does everything for you and everything is easy to use with a useful 'help' program in the applications. I often struggle with the CD's included in the box, I have not touched mine yet!! I... (read more)

A great mobile phone. My previous one was a Nokia N95 8GB. It is nice to get away from slider for a change and I like the QWERTY keyboard, though it did take a while to get used to as I found buttons small to start with, but am more than used to it now. I have switched off predictive text mode as more of a hinderence than a help (still haven't really bought into the concept as it is QWERTY anyway!). I have the phone on contract with the 3 network and take advantage of their pushed email... (read more)

The office applications are also good enough for me to write my cover letters and resumes on.
The Nokia Maps application is underwhelming. Google maps with GPS enabled is a much stronger application on this phone.
I'm also awaiting Skype and Google Talk support for the E71 so I can use WiFi to make video calls and chat with my Google contacts.
This phone will do it all for you, WiFi, GPS, Business suite, querty keypad, smart dialing, bluetooth, and so much more...

I'll admit I am probably one of the hardest people to please when it comes to mobile phones (just have a look at my review of the Samsung F480).
I have never been a great fan of Nokia phones but my wife got an N96 and I was generally impressed with the software enough to go onto eBay and get an E71. The software to connect it is very easy to use and reliable (Samsung take note!)
The battery life is excellent, I have bluetooth on all the time some browsing on WiFi and 3G and its still got... (read more)
