We tasted a few days ago another teams and doubted about whether they were “successors” or not of previous models. In the case of the phone we tested now, the Nokia E72 We are in the same position as regards the E71.
Are not by appearance before an entirely new crew in its appearance, which has seen a E71 will remember him immediately to see the Nokia E72. And first thing not miss is the extreme thinness of the whole, it seems lie that everything there fits inside, but it should be. And is so well built that this thinness (talk about 10 mm) does not weak or difficult to manage. There is only a price that pays with this thinness and is the main Chamber protrudes too far for my taste.
If we stay in the mere aesthetics the Nokia E72 It’s very nice, enters the eyes but I have to admit that the battery cover not us has “engachado”. It is metallic, is very well made, but is decorated with a few lines that might be necessary to submit to the opinion of the users.
The sales package content (free team speak) is what we expect from a phone of this range. Includes, how not, phone strap, micro SD 4GB card, with a horizontal to protect it (without belt clip) and the already inevitable cleaning cloth, charger, cable micro USB and headphones of a modern design and with silicone of different sizes adapters.
We can see it all a little better in this gallery.

Leaving aside other details which we will discuss later highlight new and that it matches what BlackBerry It is making with other teams. The device to operate the cursor on screen is an optical trackpad surrounded by a ring that acts as a cursor. Can not assess the progress on the E71, but we can say that we certainly liked. It is a little different from the RIM equipment since the optically active part is slightly sunken.
Comparing a list of specifications of the Nokia E71 and of the Nokia E72 We can say that if we talk about size, weight and screen are virtually the same team. We have said before that it has a thickness of about 10 mm, 114 of length and width 59.5. The screen has a resolution of 32 x 240. Like most noteworthy changes apart from the aforementioned trackpad we have one little visible as it is the inclusion of compass and camera 3.2 megapixel happens to 5. Optics does not look proud Carl Zeiss brand as in the case of the series N.
On the left side we have (protected by rigid lids) connector micro USB for charging and synchronization and the accommodation for card micro SD (up to 16GB). Both lids and their hooves appear to promise durability, something that does not always occur. At the bottom it has the connector for standard Nokia charger. We have therefore two options for charging the Nokia E72. On the right side are the volume controls and dialing by voice.
We finished the tour of the “periphery” of the E72 top with the power button on headphones, 3.5 mm another improved with respect to the E71 which was 2.5 mm.
In front of the E71 keyboard changes the layout of keys dedicated for calendar, tasks, and others. But most prominent keyboard change is on the bottom row that the SPACEBAR has “shrunk” to leave more room to keys that will allow us to type punctuation marks more comfortably if need to use key combinations.
The size of the keys is very similar to the E71 and the only downside that could put him there is no separation between them as in the BB Bold, in any case in the usual position of two thumbs is written very quickly.
Few drawbacks to the hardware of the Nokia E72, the quality of construction is top notch with a suitable size, highlighting the slim phone. It is not light but neither feels heavy and in any case lack of lightness is no doubt due to the quality of the materials (no suspect plastics). Sold with accessories that should bring all its range phones.
We will talk soon how it behaves its Symbian and the experience of use.
