I purchased the phone (topaz brown colour) as an upgrade from the E71, soon as it was launched. I am an extensive user of almost all features except for games. I have been badly disappointed initially as because of poor stability. However the camera is the best in both low light and normal day environments (though flash is less powerful). With the first SW upgrade avaiable almost after 6 months of launch, now this is much stable than before.
It feels great now, though this being a next generation to E71, should have been more stable initially.

You mentioned for email go for BB and than you said Satio takes better pics than E72. If you say what you have to say than E72 looses out in every department. Emailing, Camera, Music and above all bad construction. So if I say E72 is a poor choice I am not so wrong isn't it.

The E72 handles e-mail better than, say the Satio(my other phone), but i dont knock the Satio cos it takes better pics, but the battery on the satio is bad.
U see, the E72 does what it does & it does it good.
Something I would like to share with you, I rely too much on internet and Emailing for my day to day activities. Opera Mini has been my choice for browsing. What I discovered is Opera mini performs worst on E72. The fonts are cramped on E72 screen but Opera mini fits and performs at its best on E63 and E71. On E72 you are forced to use Nokia browser which consumes a terribly high Data and makes it expensive unless you are under contract with provider for unlimited usage. Above all E71 is a best email phone and much more stable than E72. The world knows it but E72 owners wont agree. All in all, E72 is an expensive and unworthy choice. Watch out before you leap into E72 world.
its just a phone that drives smone crazy 4 its magical features. its just a phone by itself.go 4 it while the stocks last.

Why not try the E63 instead. it seems better then if your concerns are true. E63 seems to cater for those. despite that ots gat a 2MP camera.

In terms of processsor speed most of the modern days phones are equipped with 800 mhz, 1 Gh upto 1,5 Ghz. That does not make them better than E72. Besides, all apps which work on 600 mhz E72 also works on 369 mhz E61. These days people need a business phone which also does good multimedia and thats what we call a mobile companion. Besides all this there are a lot of shortcomings in E72 which I mentioned earlier. Thats why I called E72 a poor choice. Many who already own E72 will not agree and will have a lot to say. It wont change anything.

And when you think about it like that, if it stops the annoying kids, then it's great design planning by Nokia ;p
Anonymous, 27 May 2010 hey guyz planning to buy e72....can u all help me out to know how de phone is???? E72 is very very styling and superb nd mind blowing by its performance. its a really very valueble,go nd buy it
Good phone for those who need a new full featured Qwerty design. But problems are plenty, back cover loose ( defective design ), low speaker volume ( bad audio hardware ), Backlight leak from behind the home and applic keys ( again bad design ), camera is hopeless in low light environment, the solid steel feel of E71 is gone and it is 50/50 plastic/steel design. If you can live with these shortcomings then E72 is yours. By the way, compared to E71 this phone only performs better in terms of menu outlook, presence of flash light and audio 3,5 audio jack input. But sad that speaker is located behind the phone which dissapoints when you want to watch video and listen to mp3s without headphones. ( Again bad design ). Nokia needs to wake up and think better to design a good phone. E72 is a poor choice.
absolutley great phone... no problmes at all
sound , camera, battrey and all app are great no software hangs or lags
your best choice
Finally figured out the 'touch for time' thingy.
hold down the nav key when the phone is 'locked' & it displays the time, date,current profile & any notifications.

bananawanie, 20 May 2010hi.,can any body tell me how to remove the automatic wlan/gprs pop up..cause everytime my e72 ... morethe 3G and WLAN made ur battery drain fast. If u r not using 3G, turn it off and use GSM only. To do so go to Menu>Control Panel>Setings>Phone>Network>Network Mode. Change Dual Mode to GSM only mode. If u r using an application that needs to be connected thru d internet all the time like YM,FB,Fring,Skype, etc., then it will always ask for a connection like WLAN/GPRS/3G. Make sure to turn them off or set to automatic connection whichever is available. The setting for automatic connection can be found on the settings of the Apps that u r using. Hope this info helps.
