It’s not as wide as a Blackberry, but it’s super sleek and definitely thinner.

I have to say I really like the Nokia E72. It’s thin, very pocketable, does everything I need it to do, and lasts longer than any other phone out there. I always used to say that I would never carry around a Blackberry (or Blackberry-ish device in this case), but the E72′s made me change...

Nokia has had mixed results when it comes to business phones, but it got pretty much all the ingredients right with the E71. It's been a long wait for the follow-up, but the E72 has finally arrived, featuring a faster processor, new optical joystick and upgraded camera. But is this new...

As you might have noticed, the E72 is a QWERTY-packing smartphone in the same vein as the Blackberry. It’s not as wide as a Blackberry, but it’s super sleek and definitely thinner. It doesn’t feel cheap, either: like the E71, its predecessor, the back plate is entirely metal. But unlike the E71, the E72 has some nice brushed-steel accents that give it a trendy look.

Best of all, the price is very reasonable – one recent deal at Dell pegged the price at $245 shipped for a new E72. For a smartphone of this caliber, I’d say that’s pretty damn good.

The E72 can be snapped up for free on a £20-per-month, 24-month contract, or for around £300 SIM-free.

Great in-call quality and utterly usable camera

from PhoneArena

We didn’t encounter any lagging 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 excellent on both ends, it´s just voices get slightly metallic with the volume pumped all the way up.

The battery put in quite an impressive performance during our tests as well – it managed to keep the E72 operational for almost three days with moderate use, but the Wi-Fi was active all the time, we browsed websites often and sent quite a few emails. The manufacturer claims the battery should be able to provide up to 12.5 hours of continuous talk time and keep the device alive for 480 hours in standby....
