Nokia E72 review: The business of messaging

 

Nokia E72 is one of those handsets everybody is talking about long before their release. There may be nothing much to talk about – after all everyone knows what to expect of the Eseries and they have never let us down. But still savoring the next batch...

The Eseries spirit is all there - and we guess in-house competition is always in the picture. The E72 is bold and impressive, but manages to keep its cool too, as befits a conservative business handset. Armed and dangerous or polite and elaborate - the...

Nokia E72 exhaustively reviewed ahead of launch

 

Say you've got a Nokia E71. Say, further, that you fully intend to upgrade to the E72 the moment it's available (we can't say we blame you). If you'd like to know more about the phone by the time it arrives on your doorstep than most people do in ...

Nokia E72 (Unlocked)

 

The Nokia E72 is a slim, elegant e-mail focused handheld with excellent battery life and free GPS navigation.

Very elegant. Good call quality. Excellent e-mail capabilities. Free, global GPS navigation.

Fuzzy photos. Not a very high-res screen. Ovi App store is a mess. ; Watch the Nokia E72 (Unlocked)!

Nokia E72 - black (Unlocked) review

 

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...

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.

Nokia E72 review

 

There's always a risk when a high-interest product is announced that by the time it hits shelves its moment has passed. The Nokia E72 has been just such an anticipated smartphone, with eager E71 owners keen to upgrade to the Finns' latest QWERTY...

Dainty design and high build-quality, Quite snappy, Comfy interface, Supports Nokia Messaging, Good camera, High in-call and audio playback quality, Robust battery

Rather steep price tag, Browser needs to be modernized

We didn’t encounter during our tests of the Nokia E72. That´s something you could say about us after the fourth shot of whiskey down the hatch the other day, but that´s life. The handset is snappy and quite suitable for calls. In-call quality is...

Nokia E72

 

Nokia E72 is a smartphone with loads of attitude and great features, well-suited for busy business people or anyone looking for a cool piece of technology.

Very fast, Excellent camera, Strong messaging functionality

Optical navigation pad is hard to use, Small keys on the QWERTY keyboard might be a disadvantage for some

Just wanted to wrap up our Review of the Nokia E72 which started with Unboxing , Pros and Cons and 5 Megapixel Camera . The E71 was a major hit and was one of the most loved Nokia phones. Can the E72 replace the E71's supremacy ? Check out our E72 Review

Nokia E72 Review - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

The Nokia E72 has a hard act to follow in the much-loved Nokia E71. Though affordable, the E71 had excellent build quality, that Eseries liberal use of metal rather than plastic, plenty of features and it just plain old worked well. The NAM unlocked...

High quality look and feel, fast CPU, 10.2Mbps HSDPA

Not a huge step up from the Nokia E71, small QVGA display is dated and limiting

. The E72 just lacks that special something, be it updated software or cool new hardware, to make us rave. But it's a solid phone with all the features a business person needs, and it's a good looking piece in the hand.
