Just in case you don’t follow nokiAAddict on Twitter, I tweeted the following comments this morning on my thoughts on the E71 v N97:-
E71 v N97 Keyboard: One handed use the E71 wins, but overall easy of use the N97 wins.
E71 v N97 Screen: Hell the N97 wins this hands down for the sheer size of the screen, I’ll miss it 😦
E71 v N97 Sound: The N97 wins with the dual speakers and overall sound quality, plus the N97 has a 3.5mm audio connector.
E71 v N97 Battery: Snap they both have the same battery, but E71 tends to last longer, N97’s big screen must kill it?
E71 v N97 Phone Memory: E71 Wins, I have all my apps installed on th einternal memory and still have loads spare.
E71 v N97 Mass Memory: N97 wins with 32GB plus a seperate MicroSD slot for possibly additional 16GB
E71 v N97 Pre-Installed Apps: E71 wins here for me with FREE Full working Quickoffice, Adobe PDF & Advanced Call Manager.
E71 v N97 Apps: Mmm hard one to judge, they both run 3rd party apps great, some N97 ones have still to be updated i.e. Coreplayer.
E71 v N97 Web Browser: N97 Wins big on this one, the default nokia browser if way better than the E71 and a joy to use.
E71 v N97 Camera: N97 Wins with 5MP Camera and excellent video quality.
E71 v N97 GPS: Snap they both have GPS, but N97 edges ahead with the additional compass, looks sweet in Nokia Maps.
E71 Performance: The E71 is a rock solid performer, run as much apps as you want and the E71 can handle it.
N97 Performance: Will run apps beautifully, but run to many and it starts closing them in the background.
E71 v N97 Performance: E71 is the winner and whoever approved the Processor/RAM for the N97 should be sacked.
E71 v N97 Homescreen: N97 edges a little ahead of the E71, but we want more and even better widgets.
E71 v N97 Looks: Both are beautifully made phones, White is the new Black 😀
E71 v N97 Video: The N97 wins, it just seems to play anything online you want. E71 struggles sometimes!
E71 v N97 Photos: N97 wins, viewing, handling and then sending using OVI Share are way better than E71.
E71 v N97 Overall: If they had beefed up the RAM & Internal Memory I would be SHOUTING N97, but…
