Nokia E71 vs Nokia E63May 25th, 2009 | By TechToyBoy | Category: Electronics & Multimedia, Lead Article
Nokia has made a successful growth in the smart phone market with the entry of Nokia E71. Nokia has seen the success of Nokia E71 which was considered to be an elite model (compared to BlackBerry it’s much cheaper anyway) and introduced Nokia E63 as the new model. The Nokia E71 and E63 more or less has the same look and same features however E63 comes with a better price. If you made your smart phone decision by Nokia and you are between these two models than you should have a look at advantages and disadvantages of both models.
Let me briefly summarize the features that both phones have and make them a hard competitor of BlackBerry(I would say features that makes them beat BlackBerry but I don’t want to start that discussion once more). You can access Wi-Fi and have 3G support, you can set up Mail for Exchange (synch e-mail, calendar, contacts and etc..), expandable memory (Micro SD up to 8Gb), full Qwerty keyboard and user friendly Nokia menus.
First of all I have to admit that Nokia E71 looks much better than Nokia E63. The steel case makes E71 much more stylish on the other hand the plastic case of E63 making a cheaper impression. Considering E71 is also thinner than E63 we may say that E71 beats E63 in style.
When we have a look at the features; biggest difference is E63 doesn’t have a GPS. If you think that you may want to use the GPS service some time than go for E71. Nokia E71 comes with a 3.2 mega pixel camera on the other hand E63 comes with 2megapixel camera, I don’t think that would make a huge difference since I’m not expecting pro photos from my cell phone anyway. A good feature of E63 is that it comes with 3.5mm (standard) headphone connecter while you have to use 2.5mm with E71. E63 also has a flashlight function. E63 also has a flashlight function that might be useful sometimes.
When you are deciding on which one to buy you should think; if the look of E71 and GPS is worth the price difference for you. I believe that both phones are great and will satisfy you anyway.
