    New phone... Nokia E71 or N95 8gb?

    Looking at getting a new phone this week as contract's due... (new contract too) I've found teh contract i want, O2: £35 p/m, 600 mins, 1000 texts and unlimited internet. I get get most phones on this for free but don't mind paying a bit if it'd be worth it.

    The main 2 i was looking at were the new nokia E71 and the nokia N95 8gb. Which would be better? Slightly put off by the fact that the E71 doesn't have speaker phone.

    I want a phone with 3g but apart from that, any other ideas? Would prefer a nokia as i like the way they work.

    Thanks

    dont bother with an n96, i've sold about 100, and most have gone faulty, the e71 is a good solid phone.


    I was even complimenting it on how solid it feels today, strange to see a post about it on here.


    the camera aint as good as an n95 8gb, but its a better phone imo and far far less problems.

    Wouldn't get the N95 TBH, its already outdated. No idea what a E71 is though.

    I had the choice of an e71 or a blackberry bold at the end of last year, i chose the blackberry, but i still use works e71. its a top notch phone in my opinion, and it doesnt lag like most nokia N series phones do

    The E71 is the one to go for. The battery life on the N95 is not as good.

    I have the E71 and it Does have a speaker phone. It says that it does not but it does. It also comes with a 2gb card for music and photos and the internet is pretty fast and easy to use.

    As Amir said the E71 does have speaker phone. It's a good little phone but I found some of the games and apps I wanted weren't compatible with it.

    The N95 is outdated and slow with various bugs - it had decent features but what about the n96 or holding out a month for the N97?

    Cheers for the replies guys think i'm going to go with the E71. THat's good about the speaker phone, thought it was a bit wierd it wouldn't have that. Yeah my dad has a blackberry bold and it goes wrong all the time and also i'd have to pay £100 for the phone on top of the contract which i don't really want to do tbh. Likewise with the n96/7 i'd have to pay for. So i'll go with the E71 Thanks.
