The Nokia E72 brings upgrades such as a faster processor, more memory, and a better camera. The phone's design is both sleek and sturdy. It offers excellent messaging capabilities, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
The optical trackpad doesn't work very well. Speakerphone volume is a bit low. It has a lower-resolution screen compared with some of its competitors. Without carrier backing, the E72 carries an expensive price tag.
Though the price might be off-putting to many, the Nokia E72 is a well-designed and full-featured messaging smartphone for business users.

The Nokia N series has been a little bit hit or miss lately, but the company's E series of business smartphones has consistently delivered winners, and it looks like Nokia has another solid player on its hands. The Nokia E72 is the successor to the Nokia E71/E71x and offers such upgrades as a faster processor, more memory, a better camera, and not to mention free voice-guided navigation thanks to the company's recent Ovi Maps announcement. On top of all that, the E72 continues in the tradition of its predecessor with its sleek design and strong messaging capabilities.
Of course, we would have liked to see more improvements to the user interface but in all, it gets the job done. Instead, the biggest hurdle for the E72 will be its price tag. The Nokia E72 is being sold unlocked for $419 (though you can find it for less online), which may sway customers to go with another powerful messaging (and subsidized) device like the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700. That said, for those who can afford it and for the die-hard Nokia fans, the E72 will not disappoint.
Nokia's latest E series models, including the E71x and the Nokia E75, are really well built and beautifully designed handsets and the Nokia E72 is no exception. The smartphone measures 4.48 inches tall by 2.34 inches wide by 0.39 inch thick and weighs 4.51 ounces, making it slightly taller, wider, and heavier than its predecessor. However, the extra size isn't a detriment. The E72 still has a very slender frame so it's comfortable to cradle in one hand while on a phone call and it's actually thinner than the E71x, so you can slip this right into a pocket or bag with no problem. Also, don't mistake its slightness for weakness. The E72 is a very sturdy phone with a nice steel backplate and edges.
The E72 features a 2.36-inch QVGA (320x240 pixels) display that supports up to 16.7 million colors. It's clear and bright enough and features a light-sensing technology that adjusts the display's brightness based on your surroundings. That said, when compared with some of the competing products with higher-resolution screens, such as the BlackBerry Bold 9700, the E72's display falls a bit flat. Another aspect of the phone that falls a bit short is the user interface.
Like the E75, the E72 runs Symbian OS 9.3 on the S60 3rd Edition platform with Feature Pack 2. Now, this is an upgrade from the E71 so anyone coming from this device will notice more-modern-looking menus and icons and smoother transitions. The UI is pretty straightforward and gets the job done, but the problem is that there's been very little change in the way of enhancing the phone's functionality. The iPhone OS, Android, and WebOS have all brought about changes to improve the user experience, whether it be for multitasking, customization, or ease of use. We know that Symbian and Nokia are working on overhauling the OS; we just hope it doesn't take too long.
Coming back to the E72, Nokia did make some slight changes to the physical controls, resulting in easier one-handed navigation. You still get two soft keys, Talk and End buttons, and shortcuts to your Home screen, Calendar, Contacts, and Inbox, but the latter are now raised above the rest of the buttons, so they're a breeze to press without accidentally hitting an adjacent key. In the center of the array is a directional keypad with a center select button that also doubles as an optical trackpad (Nokia calls it the Optical Navi key). Similar to the BlackBerry B
I love this phone.
I bought it to replace my Motorola Q9h and it one of the best $619 I have ever spent. At first it took a while to get used to the more cramped keyboard, but once I got used to it. I fell in love with it!
I use the wi-fi all the time and it lasts about 2 days on a single charge which is decent. It has pretty good reception, even though I bought it from an independent seller so it's not on Telstra Next G, and I can't access the 3G network because Telstra is retarded. And it always makes a packet data connection even after my best efforts. I even tried deleting the access point and it just re-defined it and re-connected.
It has a really good camera. With a decent flash even though I don't like using the flash because it makes the background too dark and everything else too white. The UI is simple and easy to understand and it has a personal and a business profile. Separate e-mail accounts and support for pretty much every service you can think of. It also have GPS although I found that to not work well and on average be about half a kilometre off so it was pretty useless in the city. The other thing that annoyed me was the volume of the speaker. When listening to music, it really isn't that loud. Which I was disappointed in. Since my previous Nokia in early 2008, the Nokia 6110 Navigator had excellent volume.
But besides the negative points, it is an excellent phone and would recommend it for any user. Whether you are new to the upper end of the E Series or you are upgrading from the E71.
After having owned a Nokia E51 and E71, I thought I knew what I was getting into with the E72. After spending a couple of weeks with this phone, I find some things similar, but some things not so similar...to its detriment. I really loved my first two E series phones. They were snappy, had good feature, OS felt useful and solid, and VOIP worked out of the box with integrated SIP software. The E72 seems sluggish. When you press a button or go through the menus it is slow to respond. It seems more like a mobile phone from 10 years ago than a modern one. Nokia has dropped out of the box SIP support and replaced it with VOIP software from some provider. You can get the native SIP working again, but you have to create an account on the Nokia Developers Forum and download a software add-on to re-enable the SIP support in the OS. There is an Optical Navi key to scroll by moving your finger, but it works poorly. I turned it off right away. Webbrowsing is slow and scrolling is not smooth. I use Opera and it worked much better on the E51 and E71. On the E72, it is very sluggish and annoying. One last beef, is that it comes preinstalled with vlingo, which on my phone crashes instantly upon running. Unfortunately, it tries to run it everytime the phone is started up. It asks me to set it up and everytime it crashes after the first screen. It can't be uninstalled. I will have to do that everytime I boot my phone for eternity. On the good side, it is a solidly built phone. It has a normal mini-jack headphone plug and audio quality is improved over the previous E series phones. The keyboard and screen are great to use. The sound quality of the phone is excellent. Generally as a phone it's great. As a smart phone, Nokia has done something wrong with the software side and they should get their act together. The E51 and E71 were great phones. I don't know who the brain surgeon was who redid the OS and software side, but they should be looking for new work in another field. Overall, still a good phone, but not a perfect effort.
Great phone with even better features then the others in the same category. The nokia e72 is the best phone for your dollar. it take good quality photos , record voice and video very clearly.The gps system is very smart & i enjoy using it. I also find use for the converter and the dictionary. The modem works perfectly.
Photo and video playback is fun. I enjoy the 3g internet using the 3g modem.
PC syncronizing is flawless ,not to mansion the bluetooth data transfer. I also use it in my truck to play music via bluetooth a2dp.
The flash light is very bright and the battery last very long.
Overall AWESOME PHONE ! PC. iPhone can eat my shorts, peace !
In terms of sheer functionality, this phone rocks. It has everything you desire as a business man, word,excel,powerpoint,pdf reader,zip opener and a plethora of other business related gadgetry. The user interface is simple and straight forward. If u owned a Nokia before the transition will be seamless,if you're new to Nokia, its just as easy to navigate. The build quality is superb, the steel feels solid and looks elegant while remaining slim and pocketable. The web browser is good, it gets the job done and its easy to navigate through different pages. The connectivity is great,ovi maps,life long gps service, bluetooth, wifi and 3g. The wifi receptor is very good. Multitasking is top notch.
What I don't like is that the phone rings too low so you will probably misss calls in a noisy area. The user interface, while easier to understand, is very outdated and is desperately in need of an overhaul. Not because its business doesn't mean I don't want a little eye candy, I'm going to be looking at the phone all day. The user interface needs to be more intuitive also. Symbian is great but it needs an upgrade for it to be seen as a true competitor in the smartphone world to me. Frankly, symbian is too basic for my liking thus the E72 is not the ideal phone and hence the Blackberry will have a edge over it in the business world.
Overall the E72 is a great phone with exemplary functionality for the business minded but a complete overhaul is needed for the user interface and making the phone more intuitive is also much needed .
