Default 8703e vs 7103e

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anything that warrants a swap from a 7103e to a 8703 other than the keypad(worth it IMHO)?

Thanks.

Not much. Keyboard is about it.

Aside from the keyboard the only difference is auto light sensing backlight.

I just left the 8703e and the pearl is so much better. Skip the 8703 and go for one of the newer BBs. 7130e is on the edge of being outdated as is the 8703e do your self a favor and get ahead of the curve.

If the 7103 is like the 7100 in that the display is useless in sunlight, that would be another reason to swap for an 8703, if that is your only option. Otherwise, I agree with the others about going all out for a newer model unless there is some reason not to. (e.g. I'm avoiding the camera, and I don't like 8800 keyboard, so I'm sticking with 8700 until something comes along that suits me).
