Smart-looking Phone, but nowhere near a Smartphone,
This review is from: Nokia E72 Sim Free Mobile Phone - Grey (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I have this phone on contract with Orange, so basically i am stuck with it and am trying to live with it for the past 6 mnths. Personally speaking it is just a cheap gimmick of a smartphone which looks smart and comes in free on contract. Lets see my personal view on it's Pros' and Cons':
1. Excellent QWERTY keypad
2. Stylish looking mettalic body
3. Pretty decent battery life
4. Pretty cheap deals available on contract compared to other smartphones (that's mainly why I got lured to it during that time, and regretting it till day)
1. Like the famous quote from the movie "Top Gun" - "your ego is writing checks your body can't cash". This phones boasts of features it can't support.
2. Heavy due to mettalic body
3. Weiredly protuding camera at the back, spoils the complete shape and design of the phone
4. Extremely unstable - can hang up during a call, just before you try and pick a call, if you recieve a message alongwith a meeting alarm, if you try and sync 3-4 email ids, most likely to hang up while syncing them, can hang up if you have a heavy message box or if you have a 8GB memory card which is 75% or more full. In short the phone hangs up on its own will, you are at its mercy.
5. What to say about the 600MHz processor after point 3. It is pretty self explanatory that the 128 mb ram and 600 MHz processor does not suffice the need.
6. Since it is highly unstable, it becomes difficult to rely on it for a very basic feature like contact list or message box either as you might just end up soft formatting it using *#7370# to restore factory settings, and if you have missed to take its backup, you know the potential loss.
7. Symbian updates are pretty frequent, that shows itself how stable the company feels its software is!
So I personally don't feel like calling it a anywhere near to Smartphone, as it unstability raises questions on its basic phone capabilities.
Choice is yours!!!!

Must have had a bad 'un. I have actually sold off my iphone 4 to get back to this one - cannot beat it and I have not experienced a single one of the issues you described.

That's because it isn't a smartphone.
