Got this phone after pondering what to get as I wanted to upgrade to good one after having certain music phones for a long time. The features here are very good and until now, I haven't had issues with it. On top of that, I got free Sennheiser earbuds for free as part of some deal, and the music and radio experience on this phone is at par, if not better, than the dedicated music phones. It defo is no iPhone/iPod but has a very nice player.
The keyboard is fantastic and browsing the net on it is just a breeze. The ovi store has very good applications now and after getting MSN, Skype and other chat messengers, I don't even have to turn on my computer to talk with my friends now.
The only thing that seemed to be missing for me were Carl Zeiss lens. The camera quality isn't fabulous. But hey, this is a business phone after all, and it does its job very well. Yes, it cannot compare to the Blackberrys out there, but I don't want to be tied to a particular service provider and a fixed data plan (I'm in India). I'd rather have my freedom to choose the service provider and my own data plans, which is why, the Blackberrys are a big NO-NO for me.
I'm sorry that many other users here seem to be having probs with their phone. But if any problem arises, I'm glad I took up the extended warranty plan given by Nokia now so I can rest i peace for at least two years. Oh and yes, I do back up everything on my computer from my phone every few days ;-)
People stop complaining, E72 is probably the most advanced smartphone out there but that also makes it a bit complicated, problem with wifi, optical navi and other stuff is because you are not smart enough, maybe you should stick with iPhone.
wow, the comments i'm reading are pathetic lol got haters here. But all crap aside, the ppl with glitches and screwed up phones, I must say I pity you. Maybe you were the lucky one and got the malfunctioning handset. Mine works flawlessly.. you can't expect a product to work 100% the first time. Maybe try and replace the handset you have instead of telling Nokia to get it fixed. demand for a new one! :)
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2010Nokia e72 is a joke compared to blackberry bold2. The email client is also a joke. This phone ... moreits true and its a nonsense part of nokia may be because of too much monopoly i have been fan for last 1.5 deacades of Nokia but this E72 really sucks wholesome
Shashank Saxena, 19 Feb 2010Hi friends, My first request is to read my review complete as I am one of the first 10 custom... moreIt looks like you are from Nokia company as my experience with the E 72 was very bad. The navigation key does not work properly, the FM Radio receptionw as very poor as compared to Nokia cheap model, the phone reception quality is also not as good as other models, etc. In two months time, I had to send twice to the Nokia Care Centre for major repairs taking 4-7 working days each and two times to fix minor issues. It looks like the phone has some major defects which affects the quality of the phone. Even after complaining to Nokia, I am still waiting to hear from them.
some of your disadvantages are really not necessary for this phone and other phones you have reviewed. This phone is business oriented; the lack of a dedicated camera button or the fact that the camera is not really as good as the best in the market is not a disadvantage in any way whatsoever... please find another word or put real disadvantage next time
Murali, 04 Jan 2010********** Potential Buyer Read This *************** Just bought an E72.Terribly disappointed... moreHave the same experience. Well described. It Looks as if nonvisible programms keep Running on the background and spoil the Speed. On HTC Tytn II has a dedicated button to stop allrunning Programms. Hope Software update will improve much. Have you this experience or tips?
Hi, is there any website that I can download MSN messenger for E72 as it not pre installed in E72. Thanks.
Shashank Saxena, 19 Feb 2010Hi friends, My first request is to read my review complete as I am one of the first 10 custom... moreThanks for your lovely review. I just got myself a Brand Spanking New Nokia E72 and I am very happy!!!
My first request is to read my review complete as I am one of the first 10 customer of Nokia E72 and using it from last three months.
This phone meant for busy guys. I have activated many features. Like Message reader, Name speaker, Bluetooth Radio receiver. and configured my 8 email accounts. Office is so perfect and internet browsing is fun with it. So user friendly with touch pad. I am addicted to it and can't imagine my work without it now. Good battery backup, even last for two days on last battery dandi. Powerful processor 600Mhz, you never have to wait. it takes 2 Sec to reboot and no waiting for contacts. No memory limit for SMS, contact. Easy sync with ovi online for backup. Calendar is just perfect. camera is amazingly good and flash is like professional camera light. If you want to use it a night lamp it works as 20W CFL tube light. Can be charged through USB. Got 8 GB SD card free. world map. Traveler. Weather forecast, Great GPS signal, Good keyboard, nice sound quality. This is different segment phone only for those who wants to keep track of everything.. EVERY THING. I can't compare E72 with other stuff in the market. It’s like comparing “Porsche” with Tata nano.
one should not compare it with blackberry. Black berry is only for Email and chat. Phone is an additional feature of BB .once you purchase costly BB, you are in the grip of Mobile service provider. you have to go for the expensive BB service else there is no use of it and I don’t think email and chat is the only thing for which you are going for an expensive phone. You want more.
E72 has GPRS, 3G, 3.5G, WLAN, Bluetooth and Data Cable connectivity. I use my phone for internet at home and removed all wires of airtel broad band... Believe me 3G has amazing speed, complete internet solution for home, mobile and office. Thanks to my E72, it saves alto
Dual Camera, with bombing flash light. Not using now my digital camera. Thanks E72
Amazing Touch pad. I use it and I am addicted to it. Now if I use another phone, it is very difficult to use you have to push button if you want to just scroll, in E72 the touch pad is just like mouse pad, browsing internet, scrolling menu / Phone book, message, music search is very very very easy now. It replaces my Laptop. Thanks E72
Radio, Music, Video all are so clear. Having 8 GB of storage, never miss my HBO movie, I record them through 3G on phone. replaces TV, CD player... Saves electricity... Thanks E72
Believe me. You won’t find all feathers of E72 in another phone in market and I can bet you on this.
Thanks for reading I got my phone in Rs 19,000/- from hot spot Noida. Go only for genuine bill and sealed box pack.
Nokia e72 is a joke compared to blackberry bold2. The email client is also a joke. This phone is for asses... U wan business, stick back to blackberry
Your review of the E72 is the most thorough one I have read on the internet. It reviews every one of the options, strengths, and weaknesses with great diagrams to emphasize your points. Thanks!
can anyone help for my nokiaE72?? how many MB can you add in zip file?? because i cant add big files like video...
Had this phone for 2 weeks, everything works great, no glitches, very fast prosessor, great email, loud speakers, comfy keyboard, everything you could need in a phone is there, best phone ever
If you're thinking of getting it, think no further!
Hey Guys i an deciding to buy E72 but i want to knw tht is der any problem with the FEATHER Touch .... ??
And The Sound Is Vry Vry Low ??
I have had this phone for a week, and I have to admit, I'm impressed. I have yet to update the firmware, and hopefully Nokia won't panic and rush an update out, even though I feel, as many others do; like a beta-tester.
I'm surrounded by iPhones and Blackberrys, and after seeing an E71 in action, I decided to go for the E72, and not run with the crowd. I'm happy I did. I've been quite fortunate with very few bugs, (it went to menu screen from the new Ovi maps), but for those with issues...WAIT! I'm sure Nokia will release support for this device and justify this as the worthy successor to the E71, which I already think it is.
Microsoft use consumers as beta-testers all the time, hence your OS service packs. So give Nokia some slack, this is a great phone, and is destined for greater things when the anticipated firmware is released.
