Jun 14, 2010 by Eric M. Zeman
Nokia churns out another E series QWERTY phone. This follow up to the E71 and E72 makes some notable improvements in the hardware, but the S60 software inside doesn't quite hold up its end of the bargain. read review ›
Great Phone, Could Be Slightly Better
First off, let me start by saying I LOVE this phone lol. It's amazing, I'm going to break it down via pros/cons why I like it but what also could use improvements.
-Build: This phone is built STURDY, feels amazing in your hand
-Size: Phone has a nice size to it, not too small, not too big
-Battery: Nokia is the best when it comes to this
-Call Quality: AMAZING, no other way to describe it
-Front camera: Skype, love this feature!
-5MPCam: takes AMAZING photos
-Browser: Lightning fast
-Ovi Maps: accurate and a cool feature to have on deck
-Speaker Quality: AMAZING, music sounds ultra clear and HD
-3G Data: Cant talk/Surf the web at the same time
-Screen is rather small
-Some buttons are hard to press, only certain ones
-Browser sometimes stops, and doesn't go to the page, have to exit and re-open
-Sometimes messages freezes and you can't type
Those are the only cons I can think of.
Overall I LOVE this phone, there are a few bugs that need to be worked out, besides that I'd recommend this phone to ANYONE who's thinking about getting it.
I love this phone!!!
Pros: This phone does everything you could ask of a Nokia s60v3. It's fast and efficient. The battery lasts and lasts, and I use it a LOT, including lots of internet use and multimedia. The optical scroll pad is a great extra. It has the free Ovi Maps. It's well built and a nice size. Highly customizable. This phone is always coming up with some really nice extra feature just when I'm not expecting it. Signal and sound quality are good.
Cons: The camera is OK for a cell phone, but not amazing. You can't turn off the autofocus flash, although you can find an app to turn off the camera sound. The predictive text function is nowhere near as slick as the one on my old Razr, although it does work OK. The keys are kind of tiny, but that's almost universal now.
I would recommend this phone to anyone. It looks "all business" and is just really well designed. Nokia really got this one right.

It's an excellent upgrade. I believe i had the e71 it was the first of the blackberry-like Nokia phones. I LOVED that phone and i liked to see all of those updates put on this phone. This is such a great phone
Good screen and keyboard
I don't really have anything complaint-wise with this model. The E71 got irritating because it just had a 2.5mm headset jack and this one is 3.5mm finally.
Just What I Wanted
Let me start out by saying I had a Nokia E71 for about two years. I liked the E71 but it had a few glitches that really bugged, like the 2.5mm headset jack, which required an adapter for use with standard headphones and I found the keyboard too small. I especially hated using the headphone adapter because it was bulky and kept popping out when I was on the snowboard.
The E72 has slightly larger keys, which makes a bigger difference than I expected, and you can just jack in with standard headphones. Plus, like the E71, it is unlocked, unbranded, and does all the various things I want, such as streaming internet radio, VoIP calling via Gizmo5.
optical scroll pad
5 MP camera
for the less tech savvy I'd say it does take some set up time to really appreciate and I could see how some iPhone types would prefer a larger screen.
Overall, I love this phone.
