Nokia E72 review

 

Will Nokia's QWERTY smartphone do the business?

Fine QWERTY keyboard ; Excellent messaging functionality ; Great build and design ; Wi-Fi and HSPA data ; Good package of smartphone features ; 4GB MicroSD card

2.36-inch screen small for a smartphone ; S60 user interface buries settings ; Optical navigation key can be fiddly ; Only 250MB onboard memory ; No dedicated camera button

The Nokia E71 certainly hit the mark for its target business audience, so it's little surprise that its E72 successor reprises much of what was good about that QWERTY keyboard-packing Symbian S60 smartphone, while updating it with extra power and...

Nokia E72 - Pocket-lint

 

The Nokia E72 is a capable all-rounder, but doesn't go far enough to knock the BlackBerry Bold off its pedestal

Well connected, 3.5mm jack, free Ovi Maps with navigation, keyboard character layout

Screen resolution could have been higher, OS seemed buggy at times, design around the optical Navi Key flawed

The Nokia E72 is a capable smartphone with a focus on communication. The hardware has the quality feel to it that we expect from Nokia, providing a range of services that whilst all proficient, don't really excite. We did like the new free navigation...

Nokia E72

 

The E72 has been a long time coming, but has it been worth the wait? Niall finds out.

As you’ve probably guessed we’re quite fond of the E72. It’s got a great range of features, a brilliant keyboard and impressive messaging support. So why does it miss out a perfect score this time around? There are two main reasons. Firstly, it’s not a...

Nokia E72 review

 

The design results in the Nokia E72's screen, an unconventional display that's a little smaller than most smartphones'.

The Nokia E72 is a topnotch business phone with stylish design, superb set of features and stellar performance.

Taking a fairly large leaf out of BlackBerry's book, the Nokia E72 is tailor-made for the business user, evident in its looks and a seemingly Windows-inspired use of the Symbian operating system.What…

Nokia E72 Review

 

Nokia has been releasing BlackBerry-like Eseries devices for some time now, with relatively few changes each time around. Think back to the 1990s and this is how Nokia has always operated, giving a natural upgrade path to users with no major shocks and...

The E72 is a significant advance on the original E61, although beyond the improved keyboard, a nicer look and feel, plus a great camera, there’s still the ageing Symbian operating system. Fortunately this isn’t the touchscreen version, making it easier...

Nokia E72 review

 

We review the E72, Nokia's sequel to the wildly popular E71 smartphone

Fit and finish are absolutely top-notch ; Battery life is outstanding ; It's everything the E71 was, and more

OS is old and needs a serious update ; UI feel even older ; No carrier-subsidized version available

Outside of the U.S., the E72 will be a huge hit. Here in the U.S. however, no carrier is selling the E72 and Nokia isn't really advertising the phone. As such, the only comers will be Nokia enthusiasts who thrive on buying the latest and greatest Nokia...
