E-72 has arrived in Bangalore on 30-Nov and I got a call from the Nokia Store. I pre-booked and paid an advance of Rs. 3000/-.(The one in Brigade Road.
But I purchased E-71 instead of E-72.!!!
When I went to take E-72, somehow, I did not like its look and feel compared to E-71. It did not look as rich as E-72. I pre-booked for a black hand-set.
The black is not actually complete black. The frame is in steel color. The back-plate is no complete black like in E-71. It is in steel color. I did not quite like the power and side volume control buttons. They should have been black plastic instead of silver color. Over-all I liked black-E71 a lot than E-72. So, bought the E-71
This is the worst e-mail client.
The worst that Nokia has ever given.
It only looks good, but that all it features downsized.
Inspite of selecting the option of downloading the entire mail including attachments, it is downloading only HEADERS.
My E63 would download the whole thing and I would have to just click and open it.
In E72, it gives you a notification and then you click on the mail and wait for 5 mins to download that particular mail.
Who has the time for all this?
There is no option to delete mail only from the phone, it deletes from the server.
And the 600 MHZ processor, has already gone to sleep with me using just 3 of the 5 e-mail accounts my E63 managed. Managed better than the E72.
If only they could've added a bigger resolution in there...!! :) When is nokia ever going to come out with a "Complete - Perfect" phone for the average user..
AllAboutBusiness, 29 Nov 2009Hi guys,
Thank you for your review. I think it is overly enthusiastic but it is very nice to ... moreHello,
You can download the 6120 version of Internet radio from Nokia's website and install it via PC Suite. Once installed, go to the 'radio' option in the menu and you will see 'Internet Radio' has been added underneath 'FM Radio'.
For podcasting, you could try Escarpod. I only d/l Mark Kermode's movie reviews and Fighting Talk from the BBC and both of these are simple to get once Escarpod is installed.
HTH - also there's loads of stuff on e72 over on Symbian Guru.

E72 screen is hard plastic just like E63. E71 is more metal and less plastic. E72 is more plastic and less metal. About power key and volume keys even I am confused and waiting for someone to throw light on this confusion. Overall E72 is more features but average built ( Its good enough though ) and E71 is less features but sturdy and well crafted design and looks great to own.

E 72 hit concept stores in Bangalore, India. Just got a call from the Concept Store. Cant make it today, stuck in Office. Waiting for tomorrow. Wow!! Finally :)
Friends, I have been reading the reviews which have been just added, its good that people have made up their mind and are ready to do some compromises regarding plastic or price point. Some of them have even claimed you have to wait 1 year for price drop. Some are claiming this model is good for 3 to 5 years.
Friends, as it is obvious there are 2 catagories of people, one who will buy a new most awaited model immediately upon release and another category who will compare it, study it, wait till they have all information about the product and then go for it with full satisfaction that they got stable gadget and an affordable deal.
When Nokia releases its new model in market, the 1st batch is always in limited quantity. This is a trial batch which is kept at higher price because the chances of getting complaints, replacements and returns is very high.
People who are ready to spend and want to be proud as the earliest owners of such awaited gadgets are first clients who take up this lot.
Nokia gets feedback and judge the demand with this batch. Friends, never fall victims with the purchase of the first release of new model. I myself bought it but with clear intention to let go of it within a week of 10 day.
Many people just now assumed there will be a gap of 1 year before the price will drop. Be ready for a surprise. I am expecting E72 to sell around USD 350 by end January 2010 or max by mid February 2010.
Keep yourself connected on this site for next month or so as you will be hearing a lots of positive and negetives from people who are the buyers of the first lot and get the benefit of waiting and judging the phone. Moreover by the time Nokia releases the second batch in a couple of months it will be more stable and cheaper considerably.
Have a good time.
The mail client also sucks.
I have put setting as retrieve "body, text and attachments", on auto-sync, POP3 mail.
Still when I click on the mail header, it then begins to retrieve the mail.
If I buy this phone over the E52, this must last me 5 years. Great features, great price too.
This is an awesome phone I'm sure.
If you have the money, go for it.
If not, and you can wait, give it one year of patience.
And you will save a lot of money.
Just don't look at the E73 by that time.
The most important feature is the FLASHLIGHT.
I got this phone the moment it came out and I don't regret it. I hate it when people keep comparing this to other phones and say bad things about this phone. If you don't like it then go with whatever phone you want to get!!
This is worth every penny, the price of this phone is a steal. I don't do anything much with it besides surfing the internet, texting a lot, and listening to music. The plus side to it all is that it's a darn gorgeous phone! I love Nokia and always have. You can't go wrong with Nokia. =)
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2009the excellent investment rule to protect your money from depreciation is to use delayed gratif... moreNot everything always like what you said, for people who need a device that can bring more productivity, you may buy it now and don't have to suffer 1 more year to wait the price is cheaper. I myself buy E71 when the price is quite high, but with it I can produce some money that already equal (even more) with the money I spent for E71. so in other word, I get my E71 freely.
Imagine if I have to wait to buy it (i.e. 1 year later), I will not get both my E71 and my money right now
Why do we need to carry a heavy phone in your pockets?? The weight for this baby is fine for me!! Just right & perfect!!
Don't be too worried about plastic and all.The most important thing is,this phone rocks!!.It delivers many great applications and all well, for me at least.
No restart problems,great battery life so on.We can never have a perfect phone.There's always a "plus and minus" in all new releases.
If they came up with all the best features that we need,I think the next release will be like 3 - 5 years later.I don't thing we want that to happen right??
Get and buy what you need and don't complain too much :)
fanboy, 30 Nov 2009Hi, how is the in-call voice clarity and volume of the E72? Has anyone faced any problems so ... moreHi there. it all depends on what gsm frequency ure on...Plus the network provider.
Quality should be ace:) rgds take ciao
Quite honestly, I think the only reason the E72 won't be a top seller is the display. The screen size is a bit small and even if the size was the same, at least the resolution should have been improved.
Again, these things are all relative. The E72 disply is still awesome, but when comparing it to the competition, it seems kind of inferior. I'm still buying it though, considering everything else the phone offers.
Damn, the E72 is what the E71 should have been!
