I have mentioned in my earlier review, I will repeat again 1) Hold both E71 and E72 in your hands. The sides left and right (where you will find volume keys and memory card/usb slots)you will see E71 if whole lot of metal and E72 is whole lot of plastic. I am also confused if the power key and volume keys are metal or chrome plated material. 2) The backlight leakage from its left and right soft keys makes E72 loose its charm and make it feel very ordinary. I guess its a finish problem and I am sure the 2nd or 3rd batch of manufactured handsets, you wont find backlight leak.
Friends, after going through certain updates in Hardware as well as software department, I am very sure E72 will be a best seller for long time to come.
Right now E71 is most reliable and a good mobile companion to keep.
Rajesh, 29 Nov 2009My dear street smart, do you have to be a millionaire to buy E72, you have learnt to read and ... moreThats true Rajesh, i bought it for $520. After 2 weeks in Batam its priced about $445! A week before i bought it priced $583! But i have feeling that its price going up again coz it will the next best seller smartphone in Indonesia. So i just buy it ;) I can no longer wait for its price going up or down. I have a real satisfaction having a latest piece of art from Nokia in my hand, before everybody else in the world :p
Is the radiation level at 1.31 W/Kg too high and really unhealthy? (http://sar.nokia.com/sar/index.jsp)
The last I checked online, a SAR level higher than 1.6 W/kg makes a phone unsafe... or was it 2.0 W/Kg? Please clarify.
I wish the newer phones had better SAR levels.

"Speaking of hardware, the "cheap plastic syndrome" is the curse of some of the most capable smartphones. Blazing fast wireless connectivity won't make up for the cheapish looking plastic. But the Nokia E72 has the cure - metal - and it looks as good as it performs."
In fact, it says E72 looks good with metal.

I have been posting reviews about my E72 since last 1 week. I mentioned about sound quality through speaker, web browsing, camera, about feeling being more plasticky. All have been confirmed in GSM ARENA reviews.
So keep it cool, maybe it is so hard for you to own E72. So tell you Papa to lend you some money. Yesterday I sold my E72 and I lost about USD 50.
But I will definitely buy again when the price has dropped further. Yes the price is dropping very fast here in Indonesia.
We have a surfer Adrian13 who is from Indonesia. He will also admit when a new mobile phone is introduced in Indonesia it is always very highly priced.
I always buy a new mobile and try it for a week. I lost USD 50 but I had a satisfaction that I tried a most awaited model in the world. While there are thousands who are thinking whether to pay high price or no, I have already owned and disowned it.
You wont understand this feeling, because you are not a genuine technology admirer. You are here only to try to squeeze yourself in and try to get some attention.
Go and play with your old Nokia which you bought maybe 3 years back.
If you want to catch up with latest tech, than buy this new phone, it has it all, it 2009 men. Unlock your self from from old tech.
It has better processor, better OS (FP2 vs FP1),
better email client (e71 has a old fashion one, even after latest v40 fw update),
electronic compass (turning your phone around will turn the whole map),
better audio quality through headphone (e72 has its own sound hardware),
touch pad (its feel like u have a semi touch screen phone, especially when you browse gallery effortless, just by sweeping ur finger),
5mpix camera (powerful like nseries),
usb charging (u dont have to bring a charger to ur office, just bring that short usb cable),
bigger phone memory (250mb vs 120mb),
fast usb transfer (almost triple speed compare to e71),
accelerometer (turn your phone upside down, to mute ringtone or alarm, with 3rd party apps, u can do better than this),
cheaper launching price (dont compare price of one year old phone, with a new phone, e71 launching price is far more expensive than e72)

By the time E72 price drops, we will be seeing a new model on this site and then end up waiting for that one.
You like it, then buy it.
I think cellphone is an expense NOT INVESTMENT. Its value is not going to grow. Its how much use you have for it that you could spend.
the excellent investment rule to protect your money from depreciation is to use delayed gratification by waiting for one year before buying a new phone. wait one year after its release - then it has already lost value - why, will you die if you don't buy the e72 now? if the answer is no, then wait until all the defects in the firmware have been corrected and the price has gone down. then you have saved money by using patience. but if you are terminally ill ,then buy the nokia e72 now.
I got my phone yesterday and I must say that's it nice improvement to the nokia E71, and so far it has not had any problems that I read in the reviews like the space bar not working, or the optical navi. So far I am satisfied with the phone and the battery life is just superb like my E63.
