no problem with 3.5mm audio jack.
My opinion made in China is find, the quality exactly same with othe countries sine is under Nokia control, Nokia just move the factory to reduce the cost.
My all Nokia mobile phone are made in China and never get hardware problem.
Dont think all China product are low quality, last year at the audio exhibition at USA China make a great supprise since one of the sound system can beat even better than top brands there.
Yes China produce also the low quality goods as well, but for the branded one the quqlity follow the owner standard.
I am Indonesian.

I have been using my new e72 (made in China) for a few days now and I have no problems except the 3.5 mm audio jack seems to be loose. When I plug in the jack it can come out very easily, too easily. Does anyone else have this problem?
The new firmware is now available and I have updated it on my phone. It's a very stable build guys.
I got this phone a week back in india!Till now its going on smooth.Battery has come for 5 days with moderate usage(includes browsing+music).Music Player is good with headphones.Voice quality is very goood and not low as told by others.Was successfully able to set up my mails without hassle.
Has a good built,with very light leakage(looks goood beacause of this keypad is well light in dark).
Browsing has been exceptionally improved.Skyfire simply works like charm.
Camera is okay for 5MP.Got decent snaps with this!
Well space bar had stoppped working once.Had to restart to get it fixed.
Looking forward for the firmware update.
Phone is very fast in operation.Confirmed 600Mhz(even though made in China)
I would says its a great phone & rate 9/10.
I bought the E72 2 weeks ago. BEST decision of my life. Internet browsing is easy and push email works like a dream. The build quality also feels excellent. Touch pad is a bit unresponsive but you learn how to get the most out of it very quickly. General functions are second to none. 10/10!!!
Nokia India website mentioned Rs 23k odd sometime back. Yesterday I checked again with a local dealer he was selling it for Rs 19k odd and with free Nokia BT handsfree worth approx 1100Rs.I guess Rs 3k drop in less than 2 months is scary. I think a wait of another month will bring this phone's cost to 16-17k which I feel is good for the handset.
I enjoy this phone very much..might be old fashion as i enjoy phones like these much more than touchphones...cant stand the smudges made by my fingers on the screen and of course having physical buttons to push at is a real treat. Hopefully the manufacturers would agree with me and make more of these phones instead solely focusing on touchphones.

To-the-point, concise, readable and informative.
Wish we had more people like you. Applaud to you.
i have faced a lot of problems with my E72 in the past 2 weeks since i bot it..the space bar hangs up..nokia has changed 3 of my phones and the 4th one also had the same problem..can anyone tell me if this problem is occuring with the new firmware also ie the 23.(something digits) update? and is it worth to stick on to the same phone? because nokia is willing to return my money back..
Great phone, have been using it since its launch in india. Must use one.
I purchased E72 two weeks ago after doing research on various models for two months.
It is worth a hadset to buy.
You get everything you wanted (Wifi, VoIP, VLAN, GPS, etc).
People say optical track pad is worst but i say it is best option. It is a type of semi touch screen experiance.
Phone is very fast in operation.
I tried live video streeming, video download it worked very fast.
I configured my Yahoo, gmail and corporate ID they are all running fine with push mail facility.
Phone looks classy in hand. You generally do not feel the weight of handset.
One misconception every one has is china made models are not good. I owned N70(ME) china make & now E72 china make. I do not have any problems.
Considering Indian working style this set is best suited in place of fancy touch screen sets (samsung, HTC).
Last point do not think symbian is dead, it is still alive and working well to compete with windows or anaroid.....
i read almost 4 pages of all ur comments and now confused whether to buy this cell or not can anyone from pak tell me is there any problm in this phone i wna buy this kidnly reply.
guys has anyone of you experienced dropping of calls on youe e72? it also hangs and if i type too fast it tends to skip letters especially on the letter "M". i tried rebooting it but its does the same thing. im planning to send it to nokia for their warranty. any one of you has the same experience?

Seems like 2010 is the year of touch screen phones. Android and Windows 7 will fair well. By the way what you said to Akash is true to some extent...E72 price is dropping very fast. The last E72, I bought it at USD 385 but now in my place its only USD 345. I have friends in this business and they say E72 is struggling as in my place people dont mind paying USD 500 for BB 9700 but dont like to buy E72...Everybody is going GA GA over BB. Maybe in India too E72 price dropped already...Check it out...
akash, 18 Feb 2010hi can somebody tell me which type of set would better for me. my budget is near about 14000.Akash if u r in India dont buy E72,but if u r in a hurry u can go for E71 or E63 u wont regret buying it n then if u can wait 4 few months u can go for E72 as price will cm down to ur budget and nokia india will be improved by then am I right Rajesh bhai
