Okey guys got this new cell yesterday so thought to share with you all.
Well earlier I was using a Sony Ericsson W700i from past four years. Its joy stick is in its own dream sometimes works and sometimes does not. Serviced it n number of times yet the problem was not solved. Need to change the joystick but the mechanic(My uncle’s shopwalla mechanic) insisted not to do so because there are no original sony joysticks available in the market. The available ones are not durable. So started planting bombs to my parents to buy me a new cell since past five months. More over from past 10-15 days the cell turns dead without doing anything in the standby mode. Atlast the frequency of its faintness increased day by day and got fedup of this.
Atlast last week my TYBMM’s result were out, and to my family’s surprise I was able to score a distinction. So atlast compleated my graduation with a distinction. So this was the right time to plant the bomb again. Demanded for a new cell as a gift. (Papa pappu pass ho gaya...Ek naya mobile to banta hai..
After many struggles dad was ready to buy me a new cell but in a descent range(8-12k). Personally I wanted the N-97 but saw the price and kept quiet. Searched the net and found these E series impresive. Now again wanted E-72, which was ~17.5k. (According to me, I felt that too was much to ask form the family where the breadearner is only 1 for the total of 5) So came down to E-71 and E63. E71 was ~13.5-14k and E-63 was ~9k!
Started comparing these two on net and found minor differences like: Differences between the budget E63 and the high-end E71:
NO GPS on the E63.(Dont need for now)
The E63 has a 3.5mm jack on top versus the E71’s 2.5mm jack on the side. plus points to the E63 for this one.(Thats good!)
No side buttons for volume or voice recording.(Okey will manage.)
No Infra Red.(Dont even need it!)
The E63 has a ‘/’ button on the lower row, and hence shorter the space bar.(Good!)
The E63 does not support HSDPA data.(Chalega!)
The E63 comes without an additional memory card (although a slot to add one is present).
No Usb cords or Software CD and no faux-leather slip case. (But I got it in the box)
The E63 has a 2MP camera as compared to the E71’s 3.2MP auto focus.(Again recently bought Sony Cyber shot W360 with 14.1MP)
The E63 has a flashlight function that allows the camera’s LED flash to be used as a torch.(Thats usefull) Features still present in the E63:
3G (there had been some rumours this was 2G only)
Microsoft Exchange sync via MailForExchange
Expandable memory (Upto 8GB)
Fast operation and stable S60 3rd Edition FP1 OS
E-series security and encryption functions
Huge 1500mAh battery
So finalised with E-63 for now. Will buy more high end cells of my choice once I start earning! (Khud kamao aaur khud udao!) Now confused with the colours. (RED, BLACK, BLUE were known to me) Saw all three live RED- my cousin has(Finalized this one), BLACK and BLUE (saw with my friends and neighbours)
I was more inclined towards N-97 like white colour but didnt knew that was it available in E-63??? So my uncle called his dealer friends and started gettin quotes for the same. All differ right from 8950-9350. On enquiring about the colours two of them said ‘WHITE’ and my uncle ordered for RED. On hearing the word WHITE I told them to cancle the oreder. Was happy that white was also available, so again sat on net and checked but no proper pics. Only front pics were there. So was confused if it was plane white or the shining ones which is in N-97. Again enquired but no results because it was newly introduced colour for E-63. So thought to play the gamble with the colour! Gave the order for WHITE colour to one of the dealer and he told that he can arrange in few hours. So the countdown begins. Gave the ored at around 11:30in the morning and got a call at 2:30 afternoon “SIR PEICE READY HAI, AAKE KE COLLECT KAR LO!!” So zooomed to the shop in Andheri 'T-10' and got it for 9050/-
Opened the pack and yes, it was the same colour!!!
Was looking awesom. Made the billing cancled the balance from the account!(My uncle has an account there. He is the Distributor of Sony gaming consoled PS2, PS3,PSP, Xbox, Wii and their softwares; and Media TV games.) At home:
Younger brother liked it very much!
Grand ma didnt knew any thing about it but she said the colour is good!
Mom seriously didnt liked the colour much! She liked the RED colour more which was on the box.
Dad also liked the shade of this white and was happy that the bomb was not much as the E-71(which I was planning to go for before the comparison!).
In all, the family was happy and I was also happy!
Cons I found in the peice:
No side buttons in the exterior for volume.
Less ring tone volume.
Bad quality of sound in headfones (Earlier sony was kick ass
There should be side button for keypad unlock (just a suggestion for Nokia!)
