I had this mobile phone for about 18 months now. When I first bought it, I thought it will be a transsion between my old E70 and the new E71 but this transitional period lasted 18 months. And when I saw the e71 when was released in Egypt I didn’t find a motive to shift.
Though it can’t be compared in the looks side to the E71 but it withstand its ground in all other aspects and tops it with a less slippery body and a flash light.
The only thing I missed was the push email service that was available on my old mobile but a couple of months later nokia launched the messenger service and I was back on track again, having my mails seamlessly pushed to my mobile without a glitch.
For those who aren’t familiar with the service, do go and check messaging.nokia.com and subscribe to it, all your mails will be pushed directly as soon as they are received just like the blackberry.
Also it has a great battery life, a decent browser that doesn’t hang and is really well built. I cant count the number of times it fell down, thrown away and trampled over.
And to top all the above, it once fell into water and was totally submerged for about 20 seconds and the call wasn’t even disconnected. And worked perfectly after that.
Thought nothing will be able to fill the shoes of the E70 but the E63 proved to be the best successor for the last predecessor.
