The year 2008 brought next to the iPhone 3 G, its benefits and importance for the mobile industry undisputed are further highlights of the mobile phone world. About the Nokia E71 which is surpassed in the processing quality at most of devices of Vertu class. But in addition to the excellent feel right the use value of the E71, euphoric, confirming each from the connect editors, who could use it awhile.
- Nokia E63
- Data sheet
Positive, the lab test of the E71 was at the time. The recommended price of about 429 euros, which admittedly is clearly undercut in the Web is likely to deter some potential buyers. That’s where comes the E63 in the game: for cheap 269 euro, it offers almost strikingly similar to the E71.
At first glance, the use of significantly more plastic with the E63 and clearly more metal the e71 is the most out distinguishing feature between two PDA phones. This is of course somewhat at the expense of subjective value.
So the E71 with its back cover is pleasantly smooth and cool in your hand, hand-hugging qualities but also the warm and velvety-looking E63 is not lacking.
Can be measured
To bring it to the point: while the Nokia E63 by the quality overall impression can measure with the upper class of other phones and PDA phones, the E71 is still one level higher.
Modified material is externally moreover that the E63 when approaching a track is wider and thicker same keyboard and display the same size; also the less rounded edges contribute to the more massive impression.
The format is very pocket-friendly but also with the E63, the more expensive and the cheaper model with 128 grams are weight even exactly matched. Saved Nokia with the E63 has some lateral push button, about the off switch, the now as is combined with many other phones using the button hang up.
In practical operation this loss is not really in the weight, so the E63 to handle losing just a few points on the E71. Quite so lightly it not getting away in terms of facilities. The most striking omission caused a surprise even for: Nokia sets the E63 although a stereo headset with waived but on the USB cable to the PC synchronization.
From the standard cable with mini-USB connector, Telecommunications enthusiasts have sure enough at home. Potential PDA-phone beginners but for the E63 well qualifies must purchase if necessary.
Waiver of IrDA is easier to get over. Meanwhile spread by Bluetooth and the good of the standards through Nokia support hardly anyone does infrared light for data exchange between its devices.
Excellent reception performance
Somewhat differently, the situation in the UMTS Turbo HSDPA looks dispenses with the the E63 as opposed to the E71. The less mobile browsing is noticeable; as a mobile Internet device, Nokia has anyway better devices than the descendants of E series in the portfolio.
But who wants to use the PDA-phone as a fast modem for your notebook, should rethink again the purchase of E63. As with the notebook quite a huge difference is noticeable between double ISDN and DSL speed is medium. The GPS for position determination is also missing the E63, otherwise it looks like the E71 in all relevant respects.
Whether it is on the waiver on HSDPA and GPS or the missing disturbing influence of metal parts in the housing, is. In any case, the E63 in terms of endurance and radio performance measures better than the sister model – with its excellent reception performance it can trump the E71 in the single point of criticism-worthy and ends up at the end of just three points behind big brother.
Bottom line: As a business phone and communications machine, the Nokia E63 so that is an as good as low-cost choice.
