Is the Nokia E71 your type? Well, that depends. Do you like sleek, sexy, classy smartphones that pack in nearly every available feature? If so, then the E71, Nokia's latest business-class smartphone, might just be for you. The E71 probably isn't a home run for everyone, though.
Several companies gathered in NYC this week to show off their newest phones. Our hands-on report with the latest and greatest from HTC, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, and BlackBerry, complete with video tours.
Review: Microsoft Lumia 735 for Verizon Wireless
This mid-range Windows Phone is a solid addition to Verizon's smartphone lineup. It boasts a 4.7-inch screen, 6.7-megapixel camera, and quad-core Snapdragon processor.
Review: Nokia Lumia 830 for AT&T
The Lumia 830 is a powerful mid-range smartphone for AT&T that performs far above its stature. This well-made, good-looking phone could fool you into thinking it's a flagship.
Hands-On: Nokia Lumia 830 and 735
Nokia debuted two new smartphones in Berlin today, both of which focus on providing a better camera experience. These Windows Phones are solid addition to Nokia's lineup.
Review: Motorola Moto X for Verizon Wireless
Motorola is back with a new version of its X, its top-of-the-line smartphone. The X is a better competitor than last year's device as far as features go and takes build quality to the next level.
Can anyone verify if this is correct?
Camera Autofocus/Fixed focus error
"Pressing the center of the D-pad autofocuses and snaps pictures almost instantaneously. The E71 has one of the fastest autofocus features we've ever tested. Pictures are taken in just a fraction of a second after pressing the shutter button, even if the camera needs to fire the flash."
The reason they think the E71 is focusing so fast is because it is not. If you just click the D-pad it does not use the autofocus feature.
To use autofocus you need to hit the "t" button located right under the D-pad, and then after it is focused you hit the D-pad to take the shot.
...plus those pictures taken look horrible (but since they didn't use the autofocus that would be part of the issue)
