I have this for about three months now and also use the e71

Disadvantages/Cons
Not as ergonomic as the e71 - the older e71 has a more streamlined appearance - whereas on the e72 the camera sticks out a little - can be a little annoying when you lay the phone down on a flat surface.

Software/Firmware is a bit buggy - occasional freezes - (maybe once a month at this stage).
Earlier on (first month that I had it) the email (microsoft for exchange) problems etc. were a nightmare - however the firmware is getting better.

Back cover feels a little loose - even though its not (I thought it was a problem with mine - however it turns out its the same for all !)

Pros
Camera and Video camera is excellent in comparison to any other full keyboard phones that I have used/owned.
GPS is usable - (and free) - i.e. its not just a gimmick
Music Player is good
Multitasking - i.e. keeping lots of applications open/running at once - is very useful.
Email(now that it works) is a pleasant experience.
Battery life excellent - connected to wifi and 3G 24x7 - and only need to charge once or twice a week
Browsing (using opera mini) is good.

Summary
Good phone - that doesn't really have any major hardware issues - it does have some firmware ones that appear are being addressed.
Would recommend to anyone (once they have a little patience !) that is looking for a good business phone that also has an acceptable range of features for life outside the office.

I have used the E71 for a couple of years and as a businees phone its about the best I have owned. The E72 promised to be a worthy upgade. Physically it is about the same size. The keyboard is excellent, slightly better than then the E71. The addition of a torch is a real practical bonus and the navi key is good with internet use.

Overall I was disappointed with the E72 as it stands at the moment. There appears to be several software bugs, particually in relation to email and messaging. These seem common if you read the forums. It is a shame that a company such as Nokia - who are accepted to have the best operating system have let this one through to the market as it is. As a phone user it only took a couple of hours to see that there are software issues so it makes me wonder what quality process this has been through. One other strange thing - the data cable with the phone is about four inches long (compared to E71 which is about 70cm). This means that when connected to my computer it is literally next to it and can not be moved.

Other than that the phone has the potential to be excellent. It is just the right size, has just the right features and an excellent keyboard. With a software update this would be about the best business phone on the market.

Adding to my original review - the software issues drove me to despair, email being the biggest problem yet this is the main reason for a full QWERTY keyboarded phone. All the E series Nokia phones seem to have the same issues. I have now moved onto an iphone.

For more than 10 years I've relied on my PDA- first a Nokia, then a Psion, then a Palm, and since yesterday an E72. My basic need is to carry an address book and diary in my pocket that synchronizes with Outlook when I get back to my desk. Best to have a phone built in (the Psion compensated by having a splendid keyboard). Very good to be able to carry around documents and spreadsheets and edit them on the move. Very good also to be able to take close-up pictures of documents (effectively a pocket photocopier, needs a lens that focuses close). And good to be able to set alarms, whether to wake me up or to remind me to go off to a meeting. After that what matters most to me is usability- easy to move around in my diary, easy to search my contacts. and so on.

My first report is that the Nokia E72 does all these things very well indeed. The small screen is beautifully clear (and automatically brightens when you're in the sun). The phone has clear sound and gets a signal where my Palm didn't. The small keyboard is OK because it has raised keys that click. There are dedicated buttons for often-used functions (and if you don't like the dedication, you can change it.) The diary is very easy to use- a joy after the Windows mobile diary on my Palm. Over and over I find myself delighted by designers who have thought through the sorts of things I want to do, and built in clever twiddles to make it easier. This does mean that you need to sit down with the manual and read it through; there's a lot more depth to this than you would otherwise realise. And the manual isn't perfect- I found myself having to go to the excellent Nokia support site, and found several answers there in the postings form other users.

On top of meeting the needs I started with, the E72 has more delights.

I am disappointed by the E72. I bought it beacuse I am a Nokia fan, I needed a new phone and it offered free GPS with SatNav. There are a number of reasons why I am disappointed; some fundamental and others niggardly.

Firstly the fundamental flaws.
- A phone is no good if you cannot make a call. The Call Reception of the E72 is poor - I regularly sound like I am in a goldfish bowl where my 6230i works without a problem.
- Nokia's application to transfer contacts ('Switch') only transfers some of the data - all the Group information I had was lost
- Navigating the web on the built in browser is a nightmare; the mouse moves erratically and it is very hard to select the link you want to click on if there are two links close to each other.
- It takes over four minutes to get a fix with GPS despite showing satellite status for numerous satellites, making the SatNav unuseable.
- Ovi Suite (used for backing up your phone) is unreliabe and keeps crashing

And then the niggles
- It is impossible to turn the camera sound off and you cannot zoom into a photo to see the detail or check it is in focus.
- Warning messages flash up for a few seconds, but disappear before you can get the phone out of your pocket or read them.
- The call log only records the last call from a given number, whereas the 6230i used to record all timestamps.
- There is no foolproof way to lock the keyboard; you must return to the home screen and then press first the left selection key and then the right selection key. If you are not on the home page, then it takes multiple keystrokes to get there.
- Although the keyboard is easy to type on, its implementation is inconsistent.
