Hi, here are my thoughts abt E72 after using it for almost 6 months. I have always been a symbian user, have used 6630,n70,n72,n73,n82...so im aware abt symbian behaviour...
1.impressive battery...i have used so many nokia smartphones..but this one has d best battery
2.fast...damn gud multitasking..im yet to see d usual"memory full" message
3.qwerty is amazing...i had never used a qwerty..but now im used to it..dont want to go back to d original one..if u r into texting n mailing heavily...u have to have this one...i have even used e63..it also has a very gud keypad
4.music quality---contrary to d belief dat business phones have shitty music quality..this one is superb..provided u use a good quality headphones
5.optical trackpad is really handy---i think its better than blackberyy...blackberry fans--pls dnt start a fight..its my opinion (n i have checkd BB..dats y im commenting)
6.maps---nokia maps r sure better dan ny other maps...blackberry maps r utter crap, dey luk like drawn by a primary school kid, google maps r ok. i have travelled to interior villages of india, n still got d exact turn by turn navigation...hats off
7.support for ms office....even editing..no need to buy ny soft ( like we actually do ;))
8.d 4 keys wid dedicated functions...short press n long press r real time savers
now d bad ones----
1.crap camera...doesnt matter how much i wud like to boast abt so called 5mp camera...its useless..takes grainy pictures..n i really dnt want to tell u how pathetic night shots are even though thers a flash...I have used N82 before and its a legend for camera..though i wud like to see xenon flash..im aware abt its limitations...but my point is--y cant nokia provide a good lense in 17k phone?? r business ppl boring?? dey dont like to take pictures??
2.feeble loudspeaker--i have missed so many calls wen d phone is in jeans pocket n im in little crowdy area..u have to be careful while choosing ur ringtone...
3.after using cell for abt 2-3 months i noticed dat my messaging application was hanging again n agian...i was not able to reply to simple text messages...restarting phone didnt help..i checked for an upgraded firmware...found it..installed it...n bingoooo --problem gone...never ever faced d prob again...
4.cant play video properly...i have tried soo many video players as well as many formats...but sumthing is just missing...frame rate is a bit weird..i stopped afterward...in short...cant watch movies even if battery lifes great
-----my thoughts abt nokia n symbian----
after using nokia for so many years n seen so many other ppl using dem..one thing everybody has to admit is dat deir build quality is unquestionable..now in d past, d reason for buying ny symbian phone was d availability of aftermarket applications...soooo many of dem...and also d simplicity of using dem...it was so easy to install app in my 6630. became difficult after so called security reason while installing in n73,n82,e72...y??? still we all symbian fanatics took d pain of finding cert n key file n den installing apps...but for d last 2 years im seeing rise of new era---touchscreens..n sadly though im not a fan of dem i have to admit dat i will hv to shift to dem sooner or later...reason--wer r d bloody new applications for symbian??? u see d apps market n almost all of dem r same old ones...ppl know dem by heart..dey dnt even have to read to find out d functionality of dem...same old ones...
now i see my friends using android...im not fascinated by d "touch" feel..but by sheer availability of apps..n sum real,functional,novel apps...not sum stupid calculators,3d snakes,or dictaphones...i was eagerly waiting for nokia to launch meego....but nokia u shattterd my heart...instead of deveoping d symbian platform or starting a new one--meego...u guys adopted windows...really???? d reason given by dem is "we dont want to b lost in android jungle"...i dnt know whether to laugh or to cry.....i dnt want to convince nokia to keep d symbian or go for meego or rather DONT go for windows....u have axed ur own feet....im sure many symbian lovers will share d same feeling of betrayal...
nyways...as far as E72 is concerned...its a strong workhorse....but this is my last symbian phone...my money is goin to android now...Gudbye nokia...and gudluck :)
I had this phone for over 3 months now (with software version 051.018) and just recently, it intermittently displays (like every less than an hour)
Search for WLAN
Even if I'm not attempting to browse the internet...
No programs were running since I've checked it while holding the MENU button.
Any advice on how to rectify this?
Thanks a lot!!
I had this phone for over 3 months now and it always display

Which is best mobile now E72 or c7 i want smart and gd looking mobile i want purchase E72 but i am conf pls help me daily interest of E72 is 25 and c7 is 54 what u say which one s best
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2011oh plz dont buy e72 its outdated buy c7 o e7....dey hav unique ui Is your father going to pay for E7. they priced that too high
updated to latest firmware; 054.005....so far, no hangs, improve speed, responds time and stability. Better sound quality. Also, phone does not get hot during 3G session/internet browsing....longer battery life....unfortunately, browser stil does not support flash. Would be good if they can put threaded sms.....
if i recommended E72 more better than C7. Because internet access very very good, for multimedia not bad because noise clearly & highest photos quality. Design very aerodynamics...
i like this mobile phone this is a good cell phone....
i like it....
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2011how do i update? help please
Here i list the steps to update firmware version 054.005 by Files On The Air (FOTA):
1) at standby mode, type *#0000#, then the phone will display the current firmware.
2) Press OPTIONS then select CHECK FOR UPDATES.
3) The phone will then display "connection to internet needed. Normal data call may apply. Connect?". Press YES
4) Then the phone will display selection of connection, whether by network or wifi. If you have a wifi at your place, select wifi.
5) The phone then connect to nokia data base to check the new firmware for your phone. If the new update available, then you can download then install them on your phone.
Its takes almost 10 minutes for updating new firmware. You just take a break a relax...
