Review: Nokia E71
The E71 is a smart and classy phone that offers powerful communications and productivity features. Solid call quality, good battery life, and appealing hardware are just some of its many strong points.
S60 remains to be a dense phone user interface. Nokia has taken no steps to make it easier or more intuitive. S60 is certainly powerful, but it has a steep learning curve.
Some may decry the lack of dedicated music controls, but the availability of an on-screen shortcut silences this to some degree. In other words, if you're looking for a phone with easy-to-use music features, the E71 isn't the best choice.

Support for U.S. 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi, an FM radio and multiple Bluetooth profiles allow the E71 to communicate via almost every known medium, and it does so well.
If you're looking for a Symbian S60 3rd Edition smartphone, don't pass up the E71.
