I have been using this phone for around 7 months now and I must say I am happy with this phone. E-mail works absolutely good and so do other softwares. Trackpad works absolutely amazing provided one knows how to use it well. many people I know do not know how to fast scroll on it and then they end up thinking its a menace. So I would say a bit of research required by the user to be able to use the trackpad more efficiently. Blackberry has copied the trackpad functionality of Nokia on a lot its newer models now for I have heard the trackball often gives problems later due to dust accumulation. Keypad is great for people who love texting. camera is decent and it has a good integration for applications like facebook. I can upload pictures directly onto the facebook which is damned cool. I can also upload my location along with a picture onto the facebook (with a click of a button) which I think is a wonderful feature by Nokia Ovi. Net surfing is easy if you know the shortcuts. Battery life is amazing if you are a heavy user. Well I am a very heavy user of this phone, I use emails, voice, texting almost all the time and the battery lasts 2.5 days for me. Topaz brown color looks very good and rich. Its a complete solution to everyday texting, long voice talks and easy emailing.
Cons - you can configure upto 10 mail accounts but can setup only 2 emails accounts on your home screen at a time which means one has to navigate and check inside messaging tab every time he needs to check other accounts. Threaded sms not supported with after latest update of Nokia firmware. But I think its a bug and they will come out with a solution soon.
Louspeaker really sucks big time. It works only when the environment around is quiet. It's practically useless in chaotic environments which renders the basic intention of having a speakerphone useless. I personally didn't like the handsfree much and would think Nokia could have done a better job on it. The phone hangs occasionally, but thats like very very occasional. I would give 7/10 to this phone.
Sweety, 15 Jul 2010Hello, I am planning to buy this phone. However i am a little confused. My requirements are: g... moreCamera is good for an e-series and u get decent results however not compared with the 5mp shooters on Samsung Omnia, LG Arena or Nokia Carl Zeiss lenses but MUCH better than E-71. Loudspeaker volume is moderate and works good in quiet office and home environment but would be dicy in chaotic outdoors situations. E-mail is great and compares well with my BB( In fact I seldom use BB now). Earphone sound is good and comparable . Great battery life and contrary to silly postings here..lovely browser..also plays embedded videos. Streams videos well even on an EDGE connection from the mobile you tube site. The video player is pretty ok too. Has internet radio and all office functions. Great battery life (mine lasts for nearly two days with EDGE constantly on with mail and chat running in background + wi fi for at least 2-3 hrs per day). GPS is accurate and fast...even works indoors.... hope this helps

zidane, 19 Jul 2010how about facebook,can this phone uplode picture to facebookno it cant.. it freezes.. useless. emails crap too... made a mistake getting this phone... should hve got BB9700.
mjay, 08 Jul 2010agreed the data maximum is not achievable, but when I connect it to the computer it is normal ... moreNormally your phone will select the highest setting that is available from the network at your specific location with your current Radio and coverage quality. It can also be further controlled from the network to allow the network operator to attach more simultaneous subscribers.
Hope this helps
Well, after reading several opinions I decided to add comment some after testing my wonderful E-72-2. Nokia is by far the Porsche, the Rolls Royce of Cell Phones. Let me tell you my experiences. Battery: Incredible duration even after updating. I also have a Nokia N95 and full charge lasts only a day and without any music listening or other functions apart from speaking. Camera: Yes, I agree with those that say the focus in dark situations is very difficult, almost impossible. But, the pictures, when focused, are really good. Also, video is very very good. Of course is not a Nikon D3S camera, but with 5 mp and Carl Zeiss lens you can expect good pictures. I have had problems with the famous OVI. Difficult to use with my E72. Using bluetooth is erratic, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Nokia call center, although very corteous, have not been able to solve me this. So I returned to my good old PC Suite which works fine. I must tell that I live in a farm about 30 kilometers from Bogotá, on a tall hill. The only internet service I have comes from my cellphone operator. Using my E72 as modem is tops!!! except when I receive a call, usually the internet falls. I enjoy very much the email as a separate funtion, I also like the GSM signal. This, for me, is the first and foremost consideration when buying a GSM phone. It the signal is bad, no matter how many gadgets it has, is no good for me.A cellphone is, after all, a cellphone. I have found out after several tests that the best GSM and 3.5G signal comes from NOKIA after comparing hand to hand with other brands and the same cellphone operator. The worse signal comes from Sony-Ericsson!!! Sad but true!! Video calls are also very very good. Image very sharp. excellent sound. Music reproduction and videos are really good, Picture quality excellent. I have bought this E72 instead of a Blackberry because the E72 has more features and better quality than RIM phones and also, buying Blackberry means I have to stuck to a RIM service of internet something I don't need with Nokia. Just my plain internet service from my operator I get all features of a Blackberry, with lower cost and better performance. Nokia is Nokia, all the others are just cell phones. Greetings from Colombia on our 200th. birthday!!
updated my nokia black nokia e72 2 days ago and i have also noticed my battery is not lasting as long as before.is there anyone else having the same problem? if so what can i do.
I have nokia e72 black.its really nice phone i love it.Its nokia,s father rockkkk e72
And a last thing. Reading pdf files sucks. The preinstalled adobe reader 2.5 le cant rearrange the text to fit the screen size after zooming. So you can read full page with bacteria size fonts, or zoom in and scroll left and right every line. Again wtf its 2010. There must be another pdf reader which is actually useful, a free one (foxit reader) that i found and promised this feature i couldnt install because it was not signed.
Yeah and be careful what u download cuz there are loads of symbian viruses out there.
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2010buy BB9700 dude... camera is crap here even tho its 5mp. songs wit headph is k tho... loudspea... moreYou can set light notification for the email too. As for the screen and the keyboard its a matter of taste. I dont like touch screens, and i really like qwerty keyboards, so choose another model if it doesnt fit you, but its not a disadvantage. The not too big screen has the advantage of better battery life and the tft is more durable, dropping a touch screen phone means mostly buying another phone, e72 will probably survive some drops.
