Owned this phone for over a year now and the hanging is REALLY NOT just down to the number of programs running. Sometimes after a factory reset (all too common) it will hang the minute I receive a text message. This with the most recent firmware, no extra apps installed, and no stored pictures/music/messages.
The screen is good for it's size, the camera is really good, the keyboard is good (although after a year keys are starting to stick occasionally, but I do a LOT of typing on it, so it's done OK).
This would be a REALLY REALLY GOOD PHONE, if only it worked reliably, but you never know without checking it if it's crashed/locked up in your pocket, so if people are trying to contact you, not so great. The battery door is started to sit a bit loose on mine, after having to take the battery out (when it's crashed) on average 3 or 4 times a week for the past 13 months. A colleague at work bought one a few weeks before me, and he has had all the same issues on a different UK network. (He got the new firmware before me more often than now, but while it's sometimes improved things, it's never got to the bottom of the issue.) It'll crash at a moments notice when not running anything. When you try to run two memory intensive apps at once (IE - tracking a nice walk in the hills with GPS, AND wanting to take a picture of the hills, and then maybe upload the picture) you have literally no hope. A shame, cos for a multi-tasking smart phone, this SHOULD be doable. Even an iPhone could probably manage! :O
I need to make a choice between Nokai E72 & Sony Ericsson W995, Which is better phone? How good is the sound quality of Nokia E72?
Nokia E5 x Nokia E72
hanging is just because many appllications are opened at the same time...

OS 6 has improved a lot and is more user friendly compared to previous versions. The push email is just superb and hardly any other phone in the market can compare to BlackBerry push email. Plus you get BBM with BIS using the BlackBerry PIN. Multimedia side, it has a DIVX support out of the box and the Bold has a good camera, superb music sound quality, strong reception and good in call quality. Get a BlackBerry. Beats any Nokia and even iPhone.
the ovi navigation is too cool,driving as well as walking to plases.very intresting,check it out.

No other phone in the market has a push email service like a BlackBerry. is seamless and fast. I highly recommend the Bold 9780 or the 9700 as they are both the same. The E72 has a horrid email client so not recommended at all. Plus the E72's UI is very slow and hangs all the time even with the latest firmware.

Stevieb, 02 Mar 2011I have just upgraded to the White Edition E72 - fab phone - 1st qwerty phone Ive had - but wha... morethis is with all nokia fones-it cant be changed, its a system thing
i too find this extremly annoying.sorry
i had a 5800 and it was ok.
problems with maps and internet (3G)
make sure you always get the software updates-this should apply to watever fone u get.
if you get 5800 xpress music, then yes, the idea of free music for almost a yr is very good. music quality very good, camera is not too bad either-can do minimal foto editing on fone itself.secondary camera is pretty shit though. typing is annoying because its touch
i broke my 5800-screen cracked, can get this fixed for like, 50$
am considering getting either E63 or E72. both are similar, but seems to be more problems with E72. dont get E71. i no a freind who has E72, and there a few touch buttons- apparently these are of very low quality. same on 5800, have to press twice on most things
hope this helps :P

Liz, 09 Mar 2011I'm about to buy this phone since it have good features and nice design too. B4 that, pls tell... moreHello friend. E72 is a world class mobile. I have been using this 4 past 1 month and it excels in everything. the keypad is a lil bit small, but you can type at a good rate. It has rich prebundled softwares.. The only weak point is the loudspeaker, whose volume is very less.... You wont regret if you take E72 :-)
