I have been monitoring the growth of this thread over at Howard Forums. Its seems that a lot of people are having issues with the E71 signal strength. It even got to the point that their looking for help to get this issue over to Nokia, some are even asking that Nokia should do a mass recall with this device due to the issue that they have been having.
Well as for me a current owner of a E71-2 NAM.. I am totally experiencing the opposite. So far I can say this is by far the best phone with the best signal strength I have ever had, and I mean that seriously.
I could go to places where I had the N95 and not have signal, and now using the E71 and have full strength signal, It is really weird, and I am so loving this phone..
Something tells me that there were bad batches and some good ones.
It was even noted on BGR that the bad RF is due to the location of the antenna which is located at the back of the phone, below the battery compartment..
Even though I am not experiencing this issue, I am extremely sad and disappointed to the fact that there are by far a lot of people who are having this issue.
As a blogger I am reaching out to Nokia to get some answer on this issue..
Thanks to Friedbrains for creating this poll and thread at Howard Forums to see the numbers of people who are having this issue..
