Mojeeb, 27 Nov 2009Dear Rajesh, u seem to be the owner of both nokia e71 & e72.. Ive waited for e72 for the last ... moreHi Mojeeb, Built quality and looks of E71 are better.
But in E72 you have a plus which is a better camera, better web browser, if you are a multimedia fan you will appreciate the 3.5mm headphone jack which will allow you to use Sennheiser or Altec Lansing headphones and enjoy the music. Also you have a torch handy in emergency.
But E72 will have to see through various firmware upgrades. I dont know what were Nokia developers doing when the phone was deliberately delayed in releasing waiting for the release of Blackberry 9700.
Today infact I am going to sell my E72. I will keep E71 as I find it much more reliable. But I will buy E72 in a month or two when it has matured and became stable and affordable.
I will leave the decession to you as you know what you need the most and what you can live without. Have a nice day.
Guys, how do you know the exact value of processor speed?? With some untrusted utility?? I have 5800 made in finland and i check up the processor speed with Fexplore and PhoneNetInfo, both stated my phone processor is 192mhz exactly same result with my e72. So this kind of measure is not accurate. It has different reading on Arm processor, technically i dont know why, but dont trust any of those apps that release BEFORE the phone its self :P. The only way to find out ur processor speed is by dismantle the phone, pull up the processor see by your self. My E72 is made in china, my previous phone is 5800xm and n82. My boss have e71. My boss so exited when i brought this phone. He ask me about the processor speed, i dont how explained it. The only way i can do that is trying to operate both device at the same time, so i turn them both off, and turn them back on at same time. E71 boot time far behind E72. E72 has reach the home screen, E71 lagging behind still with white screen and that blue NOKIA logo :P The second test is GarminMobileXT, still my 'made in china' E72 win especially when browsing map, there is no lag like e71.
If you found the phone too slow for you, try to follow this step, disable audio theme and theme effect, after that the phone will be far snappier compare to e71.
Current phone firmware 025.021, its an immature firmware, sometime its lagging, i can feel it and phone get crash 2x this week. If you a die hard symbian lover like me, you will except current fw and be patient and wait for next firmware where many issues or bugs has been fix.
My wishlist for next firmware:
- photo geotagging
- better camera
- more RAM after boot
- configurable sensitivity of optical trackpad per apps

Rajesh, 27 Nov 2009Thanks Ness.Dear Rajesh, u seem to be the owner of both nokia e71 & e72.. Ive waited for e72 for the last 5 minutes... i was about to buy e71 when nokia e72 was anounced..and i cancelled the idea of buying e71.. now i am reading many negative comments about the build quality of e72.. i want a phone with solid build quality, fast internet connectivity with office 2007 editing support with occasional photography... now tell me one thing at this point of time.. should i go for nokia e71 or e72...?
I think this cellphone is off-the-hook!
I can NOT wait to buy it! (:
hi, i am trying to set up VOIP for my e72, but i am unable to find the " Internet Telephone" in my menu, it seems not available in the submenu mentioned in the user guide. any one can help?
Johndoe, 27 Nov 2009Why is that?I bought this set yesterday. I have switched from n85 and can tell that the main difference between the two devices is of screen resolution which i guess is poor on e72. As far as speed is concerned its super fast. Mine is topaz brown and made in china. The phone has restarted twice on its own but nothing serious. Keypads are better than e71.

Rajesh, 27 Nov 2009Hi Friends, while reading some of reviews I have a question to people who have said that Nokia... moreHi Rajesh,
Built quality is same in both phones, White or Black. BUT White one has far better design and look!
Just look at the back covers of both colors! White one has a Unique Design than the Black one that has smal dots on it!
For me White one is far better than Black that's why I'll go with White :)
Hi Friends, while reading some of reviews I have a question to people who have said that Nokia E71 white colour Made in Finland has better built quality than E71 Black colour. To my knowledge Nokia is using same material quality on both Black and White. Can you please clarify why you feel White has a better built. Thanks
All the E72 have 600mhz cpu. check with the latest version of phonetinfo- http://www.patrickfrei.ch/phonetinfo/
