Review: Nokia E71

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's  

Aug 8, 2008, 1:15 PM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

Nokia refreshes its E Series with the addition of the powerful, QWERTY-equipped E71. It's classy, it's smart, and it's nearly perfect. Find out what's holding it back.

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.

VoIP?

I can't remember which review it was that I read, but I seem to recall someone saying that this phone has VoIP in addition to WLAN.

Can anyone verify if this is correct?
Yep, it has VoIP. It offers an option to download Gizmo and is also compatible with Truphone, Palringo and Nimbuzz. Fring apparently is kinda buggy at the moment. Hope that helps.

Camera Autofocus/Fixed focus error

The reviewer said:

"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)
Updated.
