Market status


No pros


  • Slow data means slow Internet browsing (GPRS, UMTS)
  • It is so thick it needs a personal fitness trainer (0.65 inches inches)
  • Lacks an ambient light sensor for automatic screen brightness adjustment




The E81 hs mid-level 176x220 pixels display and 1.3-megapixel camera but except tri-band European GSM frequencies it adds 2100 UMTS for 3G. Thanks to the microSD slot it can store some MP3s for the music player

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
