SLOW SLOW SLOW.......Used most of the E series phones and believe me this one is the sloppiest among all of them considering the price that you pay.
Slow, Jumbled buttons makes life difficult. Once you disconnect from the USB ( which also charges your phone) the battery indicator shows that the phone is still getting charged. What a sad choice I made over the rugged E63
I would say dont buy now. wait till you hear about some significant improvements in the OS. Nokia is just finding to make flimsy phones. Recent best has been 5800...what a phone. If you need a qwerty phone choose E71 or E63..you ll stay smiling.
Friends, firmware 23.002, I did the upgrade today...After upgrade I noticed the speed improvement, screen is sharper and now it shows lively colours and improved clear view fonts...Audio has become more crisper and Nokia has added 1 purple business and personal theme. About stability, I have yet to explore as I just finished upgrading the mobile. Now for those who want to do upgrade...its recommended to take it to Nokia service center but those who want to do it byself...here are the tips...First download and install the latest Ovi Suite ( its about 92 MB )...Then connect your E72 with USB cable in PC suite mode...Computer will install device and then in Ovi suite go to software upgrade...Your E72 will be scanned and you will see backup option...choose yes for backup and then choose the install software option...169 MB firmware file will be downloaded and installed on your E72...The whole process will take approx 2 to 3 hours depending on your internet speed. GOOD LUCK...
does the new firmware 23.002 solve the space bar and other software problems?
Reading thru the reviews it happens time and time again,,nobody states were they are from..if your in france you come on here and say how much is itwell how do we know its a world forum,,
Here in uk we have so much back up and laws,people on here say what should i do? my fone is not right,,well surly you take it back to where you bought it from?? People are going to have to help themselves by purchasing from reputable outlets and be wary buying second hand..There is only you in your country who can get prices and know reputable dealers and law and if you dont then google and find out cause your using a web enabled device to post comments here so you can access google..
I cannot believe people come on here and put,how much is this fone thanx,,ehh what currency do you mean,is it sim free price,,contract,pay as you go?? plus why cant you find out you live in the country surly youve got more chance of finding out the price more than anyone else..My goodness me..

the e72 is handy and the best mobile phne so far. The qwerty keypad is so easy to type. Browsing the internet is so fast with wifi. As a matter of fact i am using it right now while writing this comment..
Iam using e72 since 10 days works very good . i didnot have any problems.
i tried a lot of phones (N70,N82,N79, 5800 N97) But the e72 is the best.

Two way charging
Design, (Thera is light leekeg through key pads but its dos,t matter.)
Full qwery keypad
GPS and navigation
Call, Speech, sound with head set quality

when you compare the speed with E63, did you make it aple to aple condition? what I mean is how many application you open in E72 and hpw many in E63? more application opening will make slower the phone work.
correct me if I am wrong.

hi every body i have e72 for 2 month and i works very good . i didnot have any problems. no hang no space bar issue every thing is cool. i tried a lot of phones and e72 is the best and it is better than e71 alot. with it u have everything u want in your hand and i used it alot and the battry stay for 3 days.
Most of the people everywhere in the world are facing problems with the e72... it's not just MY personal experience.. Some phones work fine but some others don't so if your phone is working properly, your lucky. This is my 2nd E72 with the same problems (read my older post).. And if you don't believe me go type "e72 problems" or "e72 space bar problem" in google and you will see yourself.. I believe yes that e71 is better than e72 FOR NOW... unless nokia lunches the new firmware v22.077 which they did and then deleted for some reason, maybe they didn't fix all the bugs.
hi, i have a nokia e 72..i find it handy and cool at the same time..i wouldn't exchange for any other.... for now.
akash, 18 Feb 2010hi can somebody tell me which type of set would better for me. my budget is near about 14000.n5110 is best for byou... haha!
hneed help, 20 Feb 2010dude can u tell me how did u managed to get ur fone changed...?? ur problem is just of the sof... moredoes the space bar prob go away after updating? and nokia in delhi changed my fone twice and the dealer from where i bot it changed it twice..and the new phone that nokia got also had a defect as it failed there own quarantine check..nokia is now giving me another handset..they have really been helpful and are also willing to return back my money if the problem does not get rectified..i suggest go to any nokia care and tell them your problem..but push them to send it to the head office..only then some major action will be taken.
and what shall i understand from the previous opinions. a lot of these are against this phone.is e 71 better than e 72???!!!!
Is e72 of the same body quality as e71? I touched e52 today (e52 and e72 are in the same design line) and I'm very disappointed. Cheap looking, not solid in hand felling.
I thing the phone has A LOT OF BUGS. Two of which I encountered are a freezing space bar and a loss in signal. I think the phone would have been amazing if it wasn't for these annoying bugs. The phone has lots of potential but the problems take over and make you want to break it into pieces. I went to Nokia Care and they gave me a new E72 after leaving me hanging for 1 week and still the same problem with the space bar and the phone restarts randomly on its own, very frustrating. I know it's a firmware problem but we're paying a lot of money in order to get the best phone which, turns out, isn't. I'm going back to nokia care to let them know about it, i might switch to another series N97 maybe, but i really love the QWERTY keyboard and the look of the e72 which no other NOKIA has (except for the e71).. And you know what? The add for e72 in my country was "The new e72 is here, good news for you, bad news for blackberry".. if i knew this would happen, i would have bought a Blackberry!
Very disappointed in Nokia.
Friends, agreed E72 has bugs. I myself bought and sold 2 times and now holding 3rs E72. It does sometimes give up and become unstable. I thought tens of times that I must get rid of it...but where is the successor of E72...I cannot find any mobile which is Qwerty and complete in specs. Though there are a lot of new features which are expected to be availble sooner or later in many brands but at the moment E72 rules. So my suggestion go ahead and get it as now price is also very low.
