Nokia E63 Review

Before you continue reading this, please read my review of the Nokia E71 first so you’d get a better perspective of where I am coming from and so I don’t have to repeat the sections where the Nokia E63 is similar to the E71.

Nokia dropped some of the features of the E71 when they introduced the cheaper Nokia E63, but with good reasons. Remember that with all the number smartphones going around, consumers will be price sensitive when making their next purchase. Nokia’s price-point for the E63 (expected to be at Php11,000) combines a good set of features with a really attractive price.

What’s missing?

What went missing – GPS, HSDPA and a lower megapixel camera. Not everyone needs GPS and for most people, it’s not that essential anyway. You still get 3G speeds of which maxes out at 384Kbps – a broadband speed not normally achieved in the real world for most mobile 3G networks. And since the E63 is more geared towards productivity, the reducing the camera from a 3.2 MP autofocus down to 2MP might not disappoint a lot of people who are into this segment.

The Nokia E63 also shed off all of the external buttons on the sides – the volume control and the special back button of the E71. Even the dedicated power button at the top is gone as well as the sound volume at the sides.

Keyboard Improvements

There were some minor complaints about the qwerty keyboard of the E71. Some say it’s too cramped and though I don’t agree, those who were comfortable with the E61 will tell you size and spacing matters. It’s not really a design flaw but rather an engineering limitation – the smaller the phone, the smaller the keyboard and harder to type.

Nokia addressed this with the E63 by making the keypads protrude/bulge a bit more and giving each key press better feedback. Likewise, it’s much softer to type. They’ve also slightly increased the keyboard size and the individual keys. It’s not much but it’s fairly noticeable except fot the space key which got shortened.

Construction Changes

Since Nokia dropped the metal construction in favor of plastic, the Nokia E63 feels lighter to the hands. It has a matte finish so you don’t have to worry about fingerprint smudges.

What puzzles me though is why the Nokia E63 is a bit thicker than its predecessor (by more than 2mm). It’s possible that the 3.5mm headphone jack has something to do with it (that’s 1mm). Then, the construction of the back panel that covers the battery was also changed from a clip mechanism to a latch mechanism. Since plastic is not as strong as metal, the latch mechanism works well with it without worrying you’d chip it off. That’s another 1mm.

Value for Money

Don’t think of the Nokia E63 as a downgrade of the E71. Better yet, think of it as an upgrade to the E61 — but much cheaper. That way, you clearly see how much value you are getting with the Nokia E63. You also get the long-lasting 1500mAh battery life. No doubt, I believe the Nokia E63 will be a huge hit to those who bought and loved the E51 and the E61.

I still like my E71 because I am willing to pay premium for those extra features. However, for those who are in a budget (which most people are nowadays) but are looking into a fine qwerty smartphone, the Nokia E63 is the better option because of the bargain price-point.

Update: The Nokia E63 is now shipping with an SRP of Php14,200 (inclusive of 12% tax and foreign exchange adjustment).

    When I bought my E63 around October 2009, it costed P13,000. This is my first smartphone ever and I am glad to say, that after 2 years, it’s still working! It just shows some signs of aging such as that the battery goes off immediately. I think I just have to replace the battery than buying a new phone. Would that be more practical?

    If it works the same as mine have before (and you’re sticking with the same simcard?)
    then you could copy all contacts from phone onto simcard.
    Even if you’re not keeping the sim, you could do that, then copy from sim to phone.
    I’m not sure if there’s a faster way of doing it, but that mght work. :)

  16. Avatar for lysanne lysanne says:

    @mheann – I’m actually replacing my LG Cookie with this one. I’d rather have the qwerty keyboard, it’s much easier and faster to type on, and it has some pretty cool features, even if it doesn’t have the touch screen (which I was initially looking for)

    Personally, I’d rather have this than the Cookie, but that’s just my opinion. :)

    I just kinda hoped it had a cable included in the box. That’s the bummer part.

    hi i really need help in deciding which phone to get from smart. i’ve a postpaid plan and i’m due for a new phone. they’re offering the flwg phones for plan 1800:

    – blackberry curve
    – nokia e63
    – htc magic
    – samsung s5233 + e1080

    which phone would you recommend for a full time grad student like me? in the past, i’ve always chosen nokia phones since they’re the most user friendly. i really like the nokia e72 but i’ve to pay an additional php4k for it and i don’t really want to shell out cash but if it’s worth forking over, will you let me know? the nokia e72 is free for postpaid plan2500 – up. i’ve read your reviews about the above phones except the htc magic and i’m thinking of narrowing my choices between the curve and the e63 but i’ve read a bit about the htc magic as well so..you know it was so much easier to make a choice in the past cos i would just go with the one that looked the nicest but now with all the new techie stuff being included, i’d like to get the best value for my money. thanks much!

    never had this type of curiousity why would nokia have some alphabetical characters faded on the upper most of the screen

Features are amazing and easy to get around, though its 2.0 MP but still it wont sway the idea of a great phone that hit the consumers and phone lovers.

    I have owned the e63 for 3 months now, and I bought it primarily for its touted long talk time, and second for it being feature rich. For its advertised GSM 11 hour talk time, I’d be lucky to hit 8 hours. The phone constantly fails sends sms messages I have to reboot it for it to be resent sucessfully. And the phone occasionally hangs when entering contacts menu with a freshly loaded sim. I’m not sure if I’m the only one getting this type of performance from e63, and I haven’t referred this to nokia support either. Apart from that e63 is bang-for-the-buck for it’s feature-richness and retail price.

    the delay is not that irritating.. but i have gotten used to my motorola v3x and my not so techie nokia 2600 which works faster than my nokia e63.

    @neo, rabby, and julie
    I didn’t notice the delay when I “play” with my colleague’s phone. I found it quite snappy actually. Is it that irritating or is it totally negligible? Planning on getting one tomorrow (and say buh-bye to my 5310 T_T).

    Anyhow, hoping the “delay” will get fixed via firmware updates.

    I’m thinking of getting an E63 (as it is cheaper and it has most of what the E71 has to offer), the major downer for me is the E63’s initial colours: Red and Blue. Good thing they came up with black. Only problem is that it’s REALLY hard to find one. Even Nokia stores here in the south don’t have ’em. *sigh*

    Anyhow, could you update us as to where we could grab the black colored ones? XD

  55. Avatar for jdcv jdcv says:

    I bought mine a few months ago. My concern was when my phone ACCIDENTALLY fallen from my lanyard to the solid rocky ground the impact created a dent. The dent was situated in the upper left corner. I was terrified that my phone would be totally wrecked. I’m glad it didn’t turned that way. Yet, I’m still angered with the dent. The impact would really result to that since the hole for a lanyard is located in the lower right corner. It would be the part to be damaged when a similar scenario happens. I was talking to a friend when the incident happened so I was caught up. I regret to have used a detachable lanyard. I just wanted to share my experience. Lesson learned never use a detachable lanyard.

    I really wanted a Nokia E71, E75 or 5800 Xpress Music. Well, mom decided to go for the E63 because it cost less. *SIGH*

    For buyers it would be better to get a Nokia E71 rather than Nokia E63.

    Hi, can anyone recommend which phone would be better for editing (not just viewing) spreadsheets using Quickoffice Premier 6.0 — 6210 classic or E63?

    I believe 6210 classic has a 240 x 320, 2 inch screen while E63 has a 320 x 240, 2.36 inch screen. so does this mean that E63 would be better because of the wider aspect ratio and bigger screen, or not necessarily?

    E63 also has a bigger and more conventional keyboard. Does this mean that it is easier and less error-prone for entering data, or not necessarily?

    Is there any other Nokia device running Symbian S60 3rd Edition that I should consider for editing spreadsheets besides 6210 classic and E63?

    Thanks in advance for any help! Am new to Nokia line and Symbian, coming from Sony Ericsson world (T100, T630, T700).

    After waiting for the product to be available and finding time to look for the best price, I ended up getting the Ultramarine Blue E63 @ Memo Express @ Mega. The phone was priced lowest (after canvassing) @ P12.200 for cash buyers and I got mine @ P14,200 @ 0% interest for 12 months through Citibank. Good price and the warranty is safe (Nokia Care for a year).

    The phone so far is doing well, great looking screen and the keypad is responding well. My point of comparison would be my old P1i. Though I miss a scroll key @ the side and the touch screen. But everything else, is great.

    The package was pretty basic and some what incomplete. The package contains the phone, 1Gig mem stick, headset, battery and charger. No USB or CD included. I guess since I’ve always bought Sony I got pampered with a complete package. I guess this is how they got to lower the price. I was able to buy a class a cord for P250.

    Over all the phone for its price (0% @ 12months saan kapa?), plus its features balances everything out pretty well for me.

At the time I was considering the E63, the E71, and the Samsung i780, in the end, the 7 thousand price difference (the E71 and the i780 had prices between 19.5 to 21 thousand) was too good to ignore. The way I looked at it, 7 thousand was too much to pay for the nice extras that the E71 had over the E63 (better 3G, better build quality, better camera *though apparently this is debateable*, more included accessories); on the other hand, there are some things about the E63 that I think are superior to the E71, in particular the qwerty keypad (compare the copy/paste experience on both phones). I’ll be doing a side by side comparison of the two phones on my blog in the next couple of days, for those who are interested. :)

    To Ms. Joyce, before anything else I hope the blog owner won’t mind if I answer your question.

    According to the Nokia Philippines website, the Nokia E63 has a “microSD memory card slot, hot swappable, max. 8 GB”. It also has a “110 MB internal dynamic memory”. (Source “http://www.nokia.com.ph/A41415338”)

    its price compensates for the lack of its features, and it seems to be nice, not superior to N71 but far more useful than N61….

    if you think it sucks… can you make your own phone?

    huwaw. for a new QWERTY phone in the market with the features it has, it’s very appealing to those who wish to buy themselves a Christmas gift this season.

    i’ve had blackberries and treos before, but at that pricepoint, that’s an absolute steal. :D

    Saying it SUCKS may be your opinion but before you share your opinion on how it sucks, have you ever considered the price point and people it is catering to?

    Cellphones now have a lot more segments than the old market. This surely hits a certain spot in a segment where price point vs. functionality meets.

    Again, voicing your opinion is never a crime (I’m doing that myself) however, you’d look dumb if you did not consider all everything before saying it.

    Overall I do hope the phone does not get taxed too much and stays within the 11 – 14k price point so it would sell well. The e71 now can be bought as low as 19k, and some people 5k difference is not that much considering you are getting less power features, but for some it may be the deal breaker.

    Hope to be posted when this officially hits the market…I’ve been scouting for this phone, and most of the stores says its going to be early January…hope the price would be good enough for me to consider it as a birthday gift. :)

    it sucks cause it doesn’t have those powerful features, but then again, E63 is catered to people who doesn’t need it or who are on a budget. either way, i think its a great alternative.
