Many consumers tend to fall in for higher specs of a gadget and buy it and adore it. E72 has rich specs like 600 mhz processor but there is not a single application which runs on E72 and does not on E63 or E71 due to lower processor. fp2 is a flashy OS but it tends to gulp all the memory and users are left with a little free RAM upon boot up. Videos are jerky on E72 and tend to slow the movement of images while playing high bitrate format of mpeg4. The Gallery feature in E72 is a taken idea from N series to satisfy the high pixel camera admirers. But this feature creates a painful task for a business user as to locate a particular file you have to scroll through images and videos all in 1 place in Gallery. In E71 and E63 there were a seperate folders for Images and Videos and you could see the thumbnails in Images folder and could easily and quickly locate the file you are looking for. Nokia has made a mess of E72 by cutting down plenty and adding a few improvements to try to catch a market trend which Blackberry is cashing in without any problems.
am looking to get this phone. many great comments about it. would this phone be good for leisure (social networking, texting etc)because im not really a business-type person. anybody know when its coming to nz?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Go for the e72, it is the overall winner, i had been uding e71 for an year, wanted a change so got an N97 mini, but its build quality and overall feel is nowhere near the e series. Sold at a loss of around $100(USD) as there is no return policy at my place. And got the e72, and believe me it is the greatest phone nokia has ever made, all the features of n97 mini + better build quality, bettter processor 600mhz, n97 has 369mhz, better keyboard, better battery, more software features- Office document editor, Adv comm. Manager, pdf viewer(n97 has the trial version for 15 days), active profiles, nokia messaging.
All the so called widgets of n97 are mostly the free softwares, nowhere near the quality softwares included in the e72.
My advice- go for the e72, smartphone with very good multimedia features.

kevin, 20 Dec 2009does this one REALLY have autofocus on the camera? on the specs of e71 it says it has, but i... morePress 2 for auto focus lock before taking the shot. The focus rectangle turns green when focus is locked and you're sure to have a beautiful snap, every time! Trust me!

kevin, 20 Dec 2009does this one REALLY have autofocus on the camera? on the specs of e71 it says it has, but i... moreE72 have an autofocus camera and so does E71. E72 autofocus feature works just like on any other mobile which has an autofocus. In E71 you have to press a key with alphabet "T" when you aim an object. E71 has a very unique business camera which also serves as a great barcode reader and it scans documents and name cards like a pro. No other mobile in world is as capable as E71 when it comes to document scanning but E71 camera is worst when it comes to a standard photography like taking pictures of a person or object in low light conditions.
so rajesh, B.S and others..
I am in the Middle East and I want to change the mobile that i have..
Do you think that i should wait for nokia to submit next firmware update or turn to E71???
Or just forget about it?!!
does this one REALLY have autofocus on the camera?
on the specs of e71 it says it has, but i used a friend's e71 and it has NO autofocus.. im asking cuz i cannot trust it...

If a $5 movie is bad you will curse it for wasting your precious 2 hours. Now how about a gadget on which you invest and trust it 24/7 to be your faithful companion in business. We already have enough headaches in our day to day life and in no way we can afford to add more by any cause. Hope you got my point.
amar, 20 Dec 2009instead of coreplayer 1.2 try 1.36 its far much superior... can u provide me a valid link for coreplayer download
Rajesh, 20 Dec 2009Friends, I have always been an observer of first release of any great gadget which have send t... moreRajesh what u mentioned applies for all products and not only to Nokia. What you say is like watching a movie after 3 months after the release when the crowd is less and tickets are cheaper.You can not dismiss the joy or happiness of owning something new rather than buying it when your driver or maid already has it.
In US and European countries the consumers have an option to return the product if its not upto the mark. But in Asia we do not have that luxury.
Most of the shortcomings can be overcome after updating the firmware.
But i agree with you that it is prudent to wait for a while. Although I bought it on the first day of launch as i was waiting for it for more than 2 months. I do have some issues but i hope i can find the new firmware to upgrade it sooner or later
I have been using this phone for a month. The build quality is solid and battery life is exceptionally good. But unfortunately the OVI store is yet to stock up software for E72. No maps yet. The SMS preview software is a dumb one. When it displays SMS, it locks the phone and you can not answer a call. My set has a major issue i.e. the phone goes into silent mode on its own sometimes for reasons best known to Nokia.
The WLAN scanning is a pain. In middle of a music or movey play, everything stops and phone asks you to choose WLAN network.Even turning off the WLAN scan is of no use.
The screen is very small for web surfers. The optical navi key is irritating. you would be better off without it.
I will never buy a candybar phone with qwerty keyboard. Its too small. I feel i should have gone for N97 or N900. But I went for E72 because of the battery issue and price (S$645).
In business, it does'nt matter what you can do. What your competitors are doing with success, you do it better. Nokia brought higher processor speed to E72 not because it was needed by the S60 OS but it was a market requirement as a vast majority of consumers go by the specs on paper and make their buying decessions on higher specs. S60 works flawlessly on E71 and E63 with processor at half speed. Try playing high bit rate mpeg4s on E72 and you will notice jerky videos. Higher processor on E72 is a marketing strategy with flashy looks of fp2. If today I were to use a Qwerty handset to do my day to day tasks, communicate, a bit of entertainment I would definitely choose E71 to E72 as it is a final product and above all at a very reasonable price and above that you are getting a designer mobile with feel of steel and mark of best craftsmanship ever in mobile industry. You will only miss a better camera which to many business users does'nt matter. But keep track on E72 as in future(2 or 3 months) it will be available at much better price and would be a stable product. Think about it
sohana, 20 Dec 2009hi,u r rite.can u tell me wen is the 3rd batch of nokia e72 coming in the market? thank u.I have noticed that in 2 to 3 months after release of a model, fresh batches are shipped around the world. You will find probably an updated firmware with fewer or no bugs and for sure a much better hardware. Also by then if it may interest you, you will find various accessories like beautiful designer covers etc from third parties to protect your phone which are hardly available at the time of 1st release.
aryan, 20 Dec 2009hi rajesh .... i have been followin ur comments from day one .... as i am on a lookout for a... moreHi Aryan, I personally would recommend you E71 if you want a stylish phone but E63 is a winner if you are on a budget. Both these phones have fm radio and a long battery life which is a must have when you want to use a fm radio for long time. PDAs on other hand have a very short battery life which itself is a let down if you listen to a radio on it. Probably thats the reason most PDAs dont have fm transmitters included. By the way E71 and E63 should be able to satisfy your PDA needs if you can compromise with a smaller display.
