Nokia E72 review Review: March 2010 Last updated January 2011 Rating: In a nutshell: The Nokia E72 is a competitor to the BlackBerry Bold 9700 or Curve 3G. With full support for push email, attachment editing and web browsing, Nokia offers a real alternative. The E72 also features a 5 megapixel camera, video calling, a media player, FM radio and GPS with Ovi Maps.
Ultra-fast data access, WiFi, and stunning battery life complete the package. It's available in a choice of Black, Grey, Brown or White. Review The E72 is a straightforward upgrade of the very successful. The E71 was a very close rival to the, and the E72 delivers almost everything that we were hoping for as an upgrade.
But time has marched onwards and the E72 now has to compete with the upgrade to the Bold, the. Has it got what it takes to finally knock BlackBerry off its perch? The first thing to note is that physically there's almost nothing between the E72 and the E71.
They look virtually identical, have the same size and weight and the keyboard feels the same. That's a pity, because whilst the QWERTY keyboard is good, it isn't quite up to the very high standards set by the Bold or Bold 9700. What a shame, because Nokia have proved that they can make brilliant keyboards - the has quite probably the best phone keyboard of all time!
The E72 is a lot slimmer than the Bold 9700, so if you want something slim enough to fit in a shirt pocket, the Nokia might be the one to choose. The display on the E72 is exactly the same as the E71, which is another disappointment. We were hoping for an increase in resolution above 240 x 320 pixels. For instance, the Bold 9700 has more than double the number of pixels. Still, it's a good display with excellent clarity. It's messaging that is the reason for buying the E72 of course, and it doesn't fail to deliver. The device is excellent for both text messaging and push email, with support for IMAP, POP and SMTP email protocols.
Attachments are supported, and the Quickoffice application lets you view and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. The E72 is fully equipped for security, with a keypad lock, remote lock and even encryption for data stored in memory or on the memory card. Full support for Virtual Private Networks is provided. But the E72 does use the antiquated Symbian operating system, which means that it can be slow and sometimes freeze or shut down completely - not great when your business depends on the phone.
The E72 can be used handsfree, with either a handsfree speaker or a Bluetooth wireless headset, combined with both speaker-dependent and speaker-independent voice dialling. You can set the phone to answer automatically when using a headset or a car kit. The E72 beats the BlackBerry when it comes to media, with a very good 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and digital zoom. It also has an excellent video camera capable of recording at up to 640 x 480 pixels, and it has a secondary camera for video calling too. The E72 can handle music playback, and has the added attraction of a 3.5mm audio headphone jack.
That's pretty well as fast as it gets in 2010. The E72 has excellent connectivity too, with support for Bluetooth 2.0 (with Enhanced Data Rate), micro USB and WLAN. The internal memory has been increased to a sizeable 250 MB, and the phone supports microSD memory cards up to 16GB, twice the capability of the E71.
We're impressed by battery life too. The E72 has a monster 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery which delivers stellar performance. You'll struggle to find a phone with better battery life than the E72. So, the E72 has many strong features, and it isn't an expensive phone either, being available free on contract at around the £20 per month level. At this price, we can ignore the fact that the screen and keyboard don't quite match those of the, and we'll remind ourselves that the Nokia is a lot slimmer than the BlackBerry and has a better camera too! The comparison shifts even further in favour of the Nokia if you compare it with the similarly priced. The E72 outperforms the Curve 3G in almost every respect, except for one: reliability.
The Symbian operating system that powers the E72 can be frustrating and unreliable at times, and if that sounds like something to be avoided at all costs, then you should choose the BlackBerry option instead, even though BlackBerry offers less for your money.

I have a Nokia phone. It's good to use, but there is a problem: When I go on the web to search for any image, when I click 'Display options' and click 'Load images', it does load the pictures. But when I click 'Display options' and click 'View images', if I select an image and click 'Zoom in' two or three times, the picture quality is very very poor, I cannot see the picture cleary, it comes out all of this very little square things. Can someone help me solve this problem, give me some instructions to help me make the pictures clearer? Rating: Reply. Reviewed by emma from UK on 28th Jul 2012 I have had my nokia e72 for a few days now and I absolutely adore it.
The qwerty keyboard makes it a dream to text and phone in general feels well built. The camera is what you'd expect from a five megapixel camera to be honest and the front facing camera is handy when there are no mirrors available! The twitter application however doesn't let me go 'back' which is a bit useless and to update my twitter status i basically just 'tweet via text'! So no major problems. I hope this review is usefull.

Reviewed by Mike from Philippines on 11th Apr 2012 Judging from some, if not most of the negative comments here, it's either you got defective units or it's the first generation of the E72, the first units to come out of the market. I got mine in December of 2010 but I never experienced all your problems. This is not an exaggeration.
I never had problems with freezing. My unit still looks new and it has never failed me yet. I use it as my primary phone, calling (what is our phone for? Hehe.), texting, MMS, chatting, for my social networking i have my facebook and twitter accounts running thru gravity, music gadget, and most important. I love its office tools! And again, it never let me down.
It works perfectly. Oh, just a reminder, try to reset your phones if you think it has slowed down a bit. Every gadget needs this, even computers. Update your software if there is an available one. It's made for your phones to work well.
I have a blackberry, and i'm telling you, it's nowhere near my E72. Rating: Reply. Reviewed by kirsty from england on 17th Mar 2012 The phone's apperance is stylish and smart. And it does the job a mobile should do (call and text) to a satisfactory degree. However they are the only positive things i can say. Its complicated to work and takes time getting used to how everything is set up. When transfering files to my laptop the phone would often decide it didn't want to complete the task.
Often the phone would completely freeze if say if i was using word or power point and all i could do was switch it off and lose my work. The memory space isn't as large as it suggests. Often telling me i had no space when clearly i did. The internet would just close itself down and the battery life was pathetic to say the least. I've had it 5 months and i can not wait to get an iphone Rating: Reply.

Documents viewing & editing. Reviewed by Douglas H from UK on 3rd Oct 2011 I've had this phone for 18 months and my advice is run a mile from it. Constant problems with freezing, misdialing and data transfer. Also despite monthly payment plan taken and staying well within limits bills are always more than expected. Suspect as phone regularly connects to the net on it's own. The biggest fault is the battery cover.
Its design is flawed with a very weak metal tab holding it on. Now on my 5th replacement cover. Also when cover breaks you're knackered as battery keeps falling out so I result to an elastic band to hold the cover on! Given it two stars as when it does work it's acceptable and battery life is good.
Rating: Reply. Reviewed by Rachel from England on 2nd Oct 2011 Couldn't agree more with the reviews which are complaining about this phone.
It is good for the first 5/6 months then everything starts going wrong with it. First of all, it starts freezing and the only way to get the phone working again after this is to remove the battery and put it back in, which is a nuisance to do when you are having this problem numerous times a day. I sent it off for repair and they said they had repaired the handset, a few weeks afterwards the same problem occurred so i was sent a replacement E72. For a few days, it worked fine and then the same problem occurred.
Another problem started as well, I was unable to send or receive texts or make or receive calls even with full signal - people could not contact me. These are the two main problems, however I also experience problems with texting - the phone would not recognise when I was typing at various times.

I've had the phone for 5 months and still am not bored with it. I love how small it is. It functions great, I love the secondary camera for video calls, and I love how customizable it is. This is a really great phone and I don't mind that it runs on the old symbian software. I have never had any problems with the phone besides the fact of how complicated it is at first.

The phones freezes at every opportunity, whether I dial a number, or trying to access the internet, in the middle of facebook, whatever. It often just cuts off while talking to people, other times it echoes. I've now been told to return it after numerous phone calls to Tmobile - who I might add are never very helpful. Now I have to go out and buy myself a phone to use until they return my E72, although at this stage, I don't even know if I want it back. Rating: Reply.

I sure miss the BB screen but that is about it.
Symbian is a good, easy to use Os, and thus far everything runs smooth and fast, no slower than the BB. Email is spot on, quick and documents can be edited on the move. Excellent battery and earpiece clarity, qwerty is comfortable and well spaced, solid feel to the phone and it is a good looking phone. App store is limited but that is ok, unlike android with thousands of apps of which many of them are the same thing with a different name.

Reviewed by Marti from England on 12th May 2011 I was the lucky owner of the fantastic nokia e71 until I lost it on a night out, and I'm pleased to say that its successor, the e72, is even better.
Between these phones I had the 5800 xpress which I really didn't get on with — poor touchscreen and all three I owned were prone to crashing. In my opinion, this is in the top three phones around now. It is very reliable, with a good camera (pictures are clear even when viewed on a large computer screen), easy to use email service so I can use outlook and hotmail accounts on it, excellent navigation on the internet and phone, gps works really well (and is an unbelievable attraction to nokia), fantastic build quality, with it being heavy enough to feel solid, but not too heavy to distort pockets etc, and is very slim. All in all, it's a hefty package. HOWEVER, what stops it being a clear number 1, is the operating system.
It's not bad, but I've had this phone about 9 months now, and the time's taken its toll. It's starting to get slow and the email has gone a bit dodgy as well.
Still, if you like the convenience of the package this phone provides, without heavy and long-term multi-tasking requirements, this phone is fantastic. The fifth star is in lieu of a competitive symbian OS relative to android.

The Symbian O/S is slow, much slower than the Blackberry O/S. But where this phone really falls apart is with data.
Apps are slow and often do not connect at all. The internet browser is lousy and almost unusable. I have yet to find a decent Twitter app. All in all a very disappointing phone.

Rating: Reply. Reviewed by Todd from UK on 12th Nov 2010 This phone is a replacement for the Blackberry 9105. The 9105 was NOT user friendly. The E72 is much better. Texting is easy, even though I have large hands. People have reported software problems, but so far (1 month) I haven’t experienced any problems.
The camera is very good for a phone, but recording video onto the supplied 4g memory card at the highest quality is rubbish, as the picture keeps freezing. But it records ok if the quality is set to 'normal' instead of 'high'. This may be a card issue, I hope.
The free maps are a great plus, especially for me as I will be doing a lot of travelling soon. The gps picks up your position very quickly, faster than my Tomtom. And the voice is loud and clear. Ring tones, and message tones are loud and clear as are caller’s voices.
Music play back is very good. The radio is very good and you can actually use these features while out travelling as you can be sure the battery will last. My battery lasts 4 to 5 days, mainly texting and 10 min call per day. But this is also due to the fact that I turn apps off as well as wi fi etc, and set the phone to gsm only. E mail worked ok but I very rarely use it.
This is an excellent phone and as long as it does not develop soft ware problems I hope to keep it for a long time. Rating: Reply.

I've even contacted my service provider who sent me a new sim card though the problem still occurs. Maybe a service provider issue though I'm not convinced. What definately isn't related to my service provider is the screen and font size of the E72. For a smart phone it is too small when compared against its rivals such as the Blackberry. Browsing the internet can be a real challenge. Finally, I find the complexity of the camera inhibitive.
On many occasions I have missed a good photo opportunity because the options prevent a 'quick snap' on the spur of the moment! Rating: Reply.
Reviewed by Minty from UK on 20th Jul 2010 I've just got this phone and I already think we're going to get along well. Apart from one website it just refuses to load (the scroll page of Dragon Cave, for those that care and that made the phone freeze so I had to turn it off and on again) I've had no problems at all.
Shame though, seeing as my old E63 managed to handle the page easily, so I don't quite understand it. Hence the one star mark down (what can I say? I adore DragCave).
There is so much that I am stumped by, but seeing as I shan't be using it for business, only pleasure, I'm not too fussed. It was a bargain, too, as I got it on the £15 Web tariff from Virgin Mobile. As I say, it's early days so things could go wrong, but my first impression, and a couple of hours compulsive use has me saying well done Nokia:) I've never even touched an iPhone so I can't compare them. But my Mum has the Blackberry 9700 Bold and I must admit to preferring the E72, the Bold seems so overwhelmingly complex to me, but then again it wasn't my phone so I was wary of pressing too many buttons and causing trouble, lol.
If any little problems arise in the future, I'll be right back to list them all, lol. Rating: Reply. Reviewed by asboste from UK on 9th Jul 2010 Bought this phone for business as I have had iPhone and Blackberry earlier. The Nokia looks great feels good and battery life is amazing compared to the iPhone and BB (2 -3 days VERY heavy usage). Email client fior exchange is OK, Hotmail not bad, but the software is absolute rubbish.
The symbian OS looks like it came out of noahs ark, it seriously lets it down. When running muliple apps it slows down incredibly and freezes all of the time. I constantly have to switch off and on. Upgraded to the latest Nokia software and had a day of trouble eventually got it going again (and I am an electronics techie!!). Today radio wont work, switch on and off and it came back! Bluetooth randomly disconnects from my carkit when it feels like, again on and off and it comes back!
If you have it set to auto push mail and you try and use it while it happend to be syncing forget it it runs like a dog. Sorry Nokia nice try but OS and speed are very poor. Looking at a HTC now.

When the radio is on and the loudspeaker is on, there is a degree of echoing that is irritating. When the headphone is on, it is perfect. That is my only complain. If you are not a radio fan, then you have a fastastic mobile that could rival any blackberry phone.
Rating: Reply. Reviewed by Mohyadiin omar from Somalia on 12th Jun 2010 Fantastic! In fact, words fail me to review this phone. Nokia e72 is the best phone that Nokia has ever manufactured.
Texting is easier and a lot quicker thanks to the QWERTY keyboard. The camera is great. Pictures are stunning in broad daylight. Of course a dedicated camera would produce a much better result, but this is a camera phone and it is good enough for me.
Also there is a free GPS as opposed to aGPS, which cost you in data connections. But you have to dowload your free SatNav from Nokia website first to realise this great feature.
The Satnav is just as good as TOMTOM and you NO pennies for it. So you have great phone with qwerty keyboad, great camera and a wonderful satnav for a good measure. Plus a great battery life.
Seriously, what else do you need? The phone has many useful features including Wi-Fi and radio including internet radio(connection could be through Wi-Fi if you don't have your own internet from the mobile services operator). But the Internet feature is only available when you upgrade the phone's software. Without the upgrade, it is just good old FM radio. After the updating available for free from Nokia website, you will notice an Internet radio added to the mix.
What is so wonderful about this is that the Internet radio picks all the Internet radio stations for you automatically. All you have to do is to just go through stations one by one(there are thousands)and add what you like in your favourites. What's more, when the Internet radio is tuned in, the headphones are not needed. The unit works as if it is a dedicated radio. That is a wonderful addition for a radio junks like me. If I have to pick a fight with Nokia, I would ask why they put the loadspeaker at the back of the phone? The sound comes out a bit muffled when the phone is on surface and the loadspeaker is on.
It should be on the front or sideways. But that is just small stuff.
Well, there is no perfection is this world. Rating: Reply. Reviewed by nottmbantam from Saudi Arabia on 2nd May 2010 I bought this handset a few days ago, as I wanted a phone with a qwerty keyboard. THe Blackberry models in teh same price bracket either didn't have 3G ( eg Curve - 2G only ) or the camera wasn't as good ( Bold, only a 2mp camera ), so this seemed a pretty good bet. I had sold my N97, and had gone back to using my N95, so missed the k/b on the N97.
As I had bought the N97 as a PAYG handset and was left ultimately disapointed, I didn't want to be spending another £500. I also work abroad, I wanted an unlocked handset, so paid around £245 for this, cheaper than some of the BB Models. Ok - first impressions - nice looking phone, very handsome, nice weight in the hand, nice and slim, quite ergonomic really. One downside is that I find the k/b a little too compact after the N97, which is quite nicely spaced out, but I do like the fact that the main punctuation marks are easy toa ccess, rather than to go through the 'Symbols' sub menu. Screen size is more than adequate, even when surfing. I am using Opera Mobile, which zooms into web pages quite effortlessly.
I have also updated the phone's firmware to v31, and did a hard re-set. From building the phone up from scratch, I found the initial email set up a bit 'glitchy', as it didn't run smoothly. I did get there in the end, and since then, my Gmail account works perfectly.I think the best way is to first set the 'Destinations' for the device, then go into setting up email. The camera is good, and more than adequate - not as good as the N95, optics are not same standard, but when viewing the pics on a laptop screen, they are pretty decent. Instal Mp3 Player. Video recording although is only at 15 fps, is again good enough. Obviously the newer phones now are recording in HD, but this is in essence a messaging phone. Business phone, so the video recording facility aint gonna be pulling up trees, but it does the job.
THe other media apps are fine, FM radio now has Internet Radio as part of the new formware, gallery, video centre are pretty similar to other Symbian phones. The shortcut keys are useful, although I would like the option to customise the home screen a little more. The application shortcuts are cahngeable, but the list of items below that are the ones I'd like to change. I like the fact I can switch to 'Personal' mode and then have a different set of shortcuts, so in effect giving a much wider range of shortcuts is needed. Menu is good, Control Panel is very good I have to say, and easy to access all aspects of the phone's operation. I don't miss the touchscreen of the N97, as I find it as quick using the D Pad.
I'm not sure about the optical navi key - in reality, the surface area is a little small really to be quick when using it, it's quicker just pressing the four direction keys. I find the loudspeaker in a bit of an odd place really - is it just me? It's on the back of the phone, so if the phone is on a desk surface, and I'm using it on the the loudspeaker, the sound is muffled.
The only problem with volume is that it's perhaps too loud (!), as it makes the speaker vibrate too much and can almost distort the sound. Maybe speaker at the side of the phone, or even stereo speakers built into the sides? Being picky here, but this IS a review.
I have put in a 8gb memory card, and have installed the main key apps I use- all work very well and without problems - Skype, Joikuspot, Opera, fring. Battery life seems pretty good, the phone is always on 3G, always connected to the internet, and will last for a good two days. So, in summary, I think it's very very nearly perfect for what it's intended for, maybe a few very minor improvements. Looking through the stars ratings and what they mean, it is in my view an excellent phone, so hence 4 stars. A few minor improvements and it would be outstanding.

There is nothing I don't like about this phone, except the battery life. Rating: Reply. Reviewed by Michael from United Kingdom on 6th Mar 2010 I recently upgraded to the Nokia E72, having used a Nokia 6300 for the last 18 months(which was probably one of the most reliable & user-friendly phones I have ever had). Initially, I found using the Nokia E72's Symbian S60 software more complicated than the 6300's S40 software, but having played around with the E72 for about a fortnight & getting used to the phone, I have to say I am impressed at it's capabilities. More amazing is the fact that all of the E72's tech & features are packed into such a slimline & compact phone - hats off to Nokia for achieving this! I primarily wanted a phone for internet/e-mail on the move, and the E72 doesn't disappoint.
Whether using Wi-fi or 3.5G, the phone is fast, and browsing the net is a breeze. I would recommend downloading the Skyfire Web Browsing App, as I find to be a bit better than the standard pre-installed internet browser. Good points of the phone? The call quality on the E72 is crystal-clear, the processor is super-fast (a friend told me that it is faster than the N97's processor?
If so, that it impressive!), and the camera (whilst not featuring Carl Zeiss optics) is good for the casual snapper. The QWERTY keypad is suprisingly usable (despite the small keys), and a 3.5mm headphone jack is included for listening to music on the move. Oh, and the phone looks fantastic - several people have commented on the nice design of the phone! So what's not so good about the E72? The optical track-pad can be a little temperamental at times, so you will need to adjust the sensitivity to your personal preference. The screen resolution should really be a bit higher, but Nokia will no doubt improve this feature when they release the E73. On a more general note, Nokia's Ovi Store doesn't have a huge range of apps for the E72 yet (in comparison to the amount of apps available to iPhone or Android users), but more apps are starting to appear & it's worth browsing the wider net to find out what apps are coming out.
For those upgrading from the E71 - whether or not it is worth the upgrade will depend on whether the improvements matter to the individual user, as the phones are broadly similar. But on the face of it, there seems to be some great deals around on most of the UK networks for the E72.
Overall, I am very impressed with the Nokia E72, and I highly recommend it as it more than exceeds my requirements. Well done Nokia - keep up the good work! Neil from UK - If your E72 is freezing, it is worth downloading the firmware updates that Nokia have released - a v22.007 update was released in early January, and a v023.002 update came out in mid-February. Both are worth downloading, and the v023.002 update in particular has certainly stabilised the Symbian operating system.
