Craig, 09 Jan 2010no wonder u had E72 twice..what was the prob..too many bad issues on urs,u got the fake one or... moreRightly said.. I also do have the same opinion as urs.. Rajesh, if u hate e72 so much then instead of writing in this forum u should go to nokia site and put ur complaits tthere... Btw i am having e72 black since 6 weeks and i am having no problems with it.. It's fullfilling all my demands. The phone is amazing. It's far superior than e71. My brother is having e71 and after using e72 when i used e71, i could not bear it. It is much slower as compared to e72. The gallery is ridiculous. Camera is useless.. Music quality is worse.. If anyone is thinking of a phone with a qwerty keyboard he should defenitely go for e72.. Cheers!!
hey peoples this is a cellular phone we're talking about a tiny technology stuff on ur hand..no phone is perfect in this world. just dont too much whining about it. if u think this phone is bad or too expensive so dont buy it then, vice versa go for it if u think its great one.
im fully satisfied with this phone even not 100%.
have a geat weekend to you all..dont forget to bring ur E72 wherever u go! lol
Rajesh, 09 Jan 2010If you ask my opinion, No BB No E72, I will hold back with my E71 and look forward to March 20... moreno wonder u had E72 twice..what was the prob..too many bad issues on urs,u got the fake one or what??? dang dude u bought a cellular phone TWICE with same type. for me its ridiculous. no wonder u "hate E72 so much"(obliquely) i knw what it feels like in ur case lol
but i was wondering why why why and why did u buy E72 TWICE IF E63/E71 just typically the same like u said..
and STOP complaining about this phone..go for nokia and email them as much as u like.. or just sue them for made a bad/not suitable phone for you lol
kevin, 09 Jan 2010hey craig
are u from australia??? wht colour ph have u got??? i want a gray one lol ... moreyes i am.. i got black color which i bought it in Singapore. finland made. but there was so many chinese made..it wasnt sounds that bad but i prefered genuine one. my suggest go for black or topaz brown, both looks nice and elegant! grey color looks !~@#$%^& (yea u knw wot i mean)
>>> i would definitely say this is worthy phone for $100 more expensive than E71. BUY IT u wont regret! if u gt bad issues on E72 then u got the fake one or a bad chinese made! lol

MP3 and sound quality is great. The only disaapointment with this phone is the web browser. apart from that it is a nice fast and robust phone.

I ma using it for a while in parallel with N79. The battery life is longer though the processor is running almost doubled frequency.
lets talk about bb onyx and nokia e72
1. Ok, onyx keyboard is better than e72 keyboard, but for some people like me, indonesian which has much smaller hand, typing one handed on onyx is a pain. So i prefer e72 keyboard.
2. Ok, onyx got bigger screen and resolution, but its only 0,06inch different, i cant hardly notice the different, and 65k of colours? So outdated, e72 has 16m of colours far more superior when viewing videos and images.
3. Onyx has better email experience and has bbm, yes, i agree with that but remember few weeks ago? The blackberry outage is US for more than 8hrs, twice a week? its a sign that blackberry service is going down due to more costumer rely on their service. Blackberry sells handset and service all together, forcing people to use and pay for it, u cant even use wifi connection for internet unless you pay for BIS or BES. I cannot imagine, one company could handles milions of people across the world to use their service, i can only prayer for bb user out there :p. As for nokia, trying to make its own service (push email and chat) but they give costumer freedom to choose, wether to use the service or not, u can steel use reguler data plan as ur main internet connection and third party solution for push email and chat. Blacberry without BES or BIS is just a dumb phone for calls and sms, taking pic and video, oh i forgot, the camera is awful, dont do the last thing lol
4. Third party support, e72 a.k.a symbian win, wide range of apps available for symbian os, its would be a very long list, if u ask me what kind of apps i have installed on my e72,
5. GPS navigation, nokia maps is the winner, there are other solution like Garmin and Tomtom, blackberry user could use blackberry map rely on its data plan, which is painfully slow for me.
6. Web browser, again my e72 win with adobe flash support, i can open Youtube video on standard nokia browser, which blacberry cant.
7. Processor, ok onyx win, with much bigger 624 mhz clock, but symbian os much efficient than blackberry OS in term of processor usage, try to compare e71's 396mhz with blackberry bold 9000 you will see the different
7. Camera, i have nothing to say
8. Price, i have nothing to say too lol!
So for me, e72 truly a blackberry killer
Battery update. I bought my E72 last tuesday and still have not recharged my battery. I have played games (briefly), made calls and used WIFI. This battery is tremendous.
should i buy this or the n97mini? and btw no phone is complete ne\/er was and ne\/er will be..
Going to buy this phone hopefully soon...unless u guys have any other recommendations for a phone with full qwerty..3mp+ camera and decent audio quality. thanks

I was thinking of buy E71 white..$300 it would be a no brainer if it had FP2. I will be in Korea until June so I can wait. I heard that nokia will be revamping the UI. I am a fan of the form factor and not really into touchscreens although the HTC HD2 looks phenomenal.
Have you seen the Nokia MYSTIC = E72 + Palm Centro?
Have you heard E72 coming out in WHITE and RED by June
I agree E73 should be built as solid as E71..bigger, higher resolution screen. Considering they had the blueprint with the E71...the e72 should have been a HOMERUN.
korea, 09 Jan 2010Thank you..... I have to ask this. What do you think of the Blackberry 9700 in comparison to... moreIf you ask my opinion, No BB No E72, I will hold back with my E71 and look forward to March 2010. A lot of surprises are on the way. New Android system and new gadgets with lots of feature, Symbian too is aiming on BB and Nokia should be coming up with a bang by March or latest April. You will be surprised my friend. Just a matter of 2 months. No way I will recommend E72 to anyone as it is incomplete, outdated and expensive. You asked my opinion I gave you the honest one. Its your wish and your decession and your requirement if its fulfilled by BB 9700 or E72....
so tell me pls is this phone GOOD or BAD? straight question pls strainght answer.

1. In that forum..all you 95% of what you hear about that phone is GOOD.
2. Better screen...by far.
3. better track pad
4. more stable OS
But why I frown on buying it.
1. USA carriers force you to buy data plan w/BB ($30) NO Wi-fi unless you get BIS and without NOTHING really works.
2. The UI is decent up top but below they use "lists" instead of icons I HATE IT.
Craig, 09 Jan 2010lol hey nothin personal rajesh no offended pls but u wrote a very F long character on this for... morehey craig
are u from australia??? wht colour ph have u got??? i want a gray one lol ...but can only get black lol
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2010Rajeesh: The last few comment you made were GREAT. You gave us something we could use. Now ... moreAbout classifying Multimedia files in folders, In E 71 you can make different folders for different files like Audio, Video and Images ( A very E series system ). But in E72 they have adopted a N series Carousel system where Video and Images fall into one gallery. But you can classify them into albums. I personally hate this. I prefer E71 system...
Korea, 09 Jan 2010Rajeesh..I just wrote you a nice compliment with my questions and I see you call me clueless..... moreClueless was a reply to your first post ( look at the time ). Now about your questions. Thanks for asking and here is the reply...
E71 camera is not as good as E72 even after upgrade of firmware. I will give E72 camera 7 points and E71 camera 5 points if I compare them to N82. Both E71 and E72 cameras are hopeless in low light condition.
In E71, Pressing the "T" while you aim the object will make the optic does extra work and refocus for a much sharper image. Sometimes you like it but when you take many photos in short time than you will Hate it.
White colour getting dirty, you can use a extra silicon covers to protect it from dust. But if you sweat a lot and cant find covers available than it will definitely look stained after a few months
You can save all your applications on memory card in both phones. But there are some system applications which Nokia will not allow you or ask you where to save and will straight away choose phone memory and its phone memory not the NAND FLASH.
If I were to give ranks, I would give E72 a 7 and E71 6 out of 10.
