AnalyzeIt's review of the Nokia E71 / E71x

original version, submitted May 1, 2011, 10:52 AM:

Good/Solid

I just picked this device up on StraightTalk. I needed a second number for a business I’m starting, but I want to keep my expenses low and cover my bases. I was impressed to see such a high end phone sitting in a box in Walmart. I know the Symbian OS is a dying breed, but it is still very functional for today’s use. I also know the Nokia devices have long been known for excellent call quality and this is missing or hit and miss on many high end devices today. My personal phone is an Android.
It’s 2011 and this is 2008 device is still holding it’s own. It has Wifi, spiffy internet, EXCELLENT call quality (something many phones overlook these days), and a 3.2 MPS camera with autofocus. There’s an option for video calling and video ‘playback’. There’s an FM radio and the internet radio is awesome. I listened to RAP music this morning in German! I could get US channels, but it should be noted that the reach is far and wide. MUSIC sounds great, you can hear the bass, treble…blah blah….
It connected well to my stereo Bluetooth devices. It does require a 2.5mm plug for a wired headset and the wired headset is necessary for LOCAL radio, not internet radio.
The OS is not as intuitive as Android, but I find it reminiscent of older Windows phones, only with more stability. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good phone that doesn’t scream ‘prepaid’. The text is a bit small, but it more than covers my need for unlimited everything plan at $45/month.
It’s GSM running on ATT’s network, so the coverage should be extensive for most people.
