BenQ E72 mobile phone

 

Angel of BT Fusion, or just plain confusion?

The tech specs are a little lacklustre too for a device that seems to want to give your that "connected on the move" feeling, with only GPRS/GSM/EDGE and no sign of 3G. So whilst the form gives you that mobile feeling, you lack the usability of a...

The BenQ E72 is only available to BT broadband subscribers

GSM/VoIP switching (BT Total Broadband customers only)

Sluggish Windows Mobile performanceNo 3G data connectivityLimited onboard memory

Even with a 260MHz OMAP 1030 processor inside, the UI (powered by Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6) is horribly sluggish. Quick launching apps via the top-level carousel (showing recently used applications) is far from quick. Below this, you'll find...

Sandra welcomes BenQ's E72 Windows Mobile smartphone to the UK.

The D-pad and its central select button are raised quite significantly from their surroundings, which makes them easy to find. Side buttons run to a volume rocker on the right edge and voice record and messaging shortcuts on the left. These sit on a...

If you value compact dimensions in a smart phone above up-to-the-minute features and performance, BenQ's E72 may be the Windows Mobile device for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere. We have some gripes with its slow clock speed, small screen and lack of...

It's original, but with some features lacking and a small screen, the E72 isn't for everyone.

The left side of the E72 is simplistic and surprisingly lacking button wise compared to other smart phones. There are two thin buttons one which is used for quick access to messages and the other will initialise the phones voice recorder for memos etc

BenQ E72 review

 

BenQ probably isn't a name you would imagine when thinking about Windows Mobile smartphones or indeed mobile phones in general. But the manufacturer has joined the fray with its E72 …

A good-looking handset brimming with added software, including Wi-Fi

Slow processor, short on memory and average battery life

The extras that bolster the Windows Mobile software are useful, as is Wi-Fi, but this smartphone is hamstrung by some underpowered features.
