Nokia N72 review

 Review: September 2006  
 

Last updated April 2008

Rating: 1 star

In a nutshell: The Nokia N72 is an updated version of the Nokia N70, but without the 3G functionality.

 

Although available in a choice of black or pink, it's not really one for the girls, being typically SmartPhone-sized and weighing in at 124g. [Editor's note: we've received a complaint about this sentence, telling us that it's sexist. We'd like to apologise if we've offended anyone. However, the fact that the N72 is available in pink tells us that Nokia's marketing people were targeting women. We're not suggesting that women should buy pink phones (in fact we think they look stupid, but let's not start another argument.) Statistically, smartphones are more likely to be bought by men, and in our experience, women prefer smaller phones. We were just trying to be helpful, not sexist, but obviously we made some sexist assumptions. We're sorry if our sexist assumptions caused offence, but we stand by our statement.] Slightly slimmer than the Nokia N70, and better looking too, it has a slightly improved keypad, and seems to have had more thought put into its physical design.

The camera is a very good CMOS-based 2 megapixel camera with a zoom and flash, giving good results. Video capture is also very good, with a high resolution and good frame rate. The 262k colour TFT display is excellent too and does justice to the photography and multimedia aspects of the device.

The music player is very good too. Software is provided for easy transfer of music from PC to phone and the 128 Mbyte memory card is expandable, so there's plenty of storage available for music tracks. Visual Radio is also supported. However, audio quality through the speakerphone and headphones is not as good as expected.

The N72 has a wide range of connectivity options. Support for Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 is included. A good web browser application is built into the phone, and there is full email support, including an attachment viewer for viewing MS Office documents.

Functionally, the N72 is almost the same as the N70, but without 3G support. It's a nicer design in many ways, with an improved keypad (but still small). The user interface is a little faster too (but still slow), so if you won't miss 3G, the N72 could be a better option. As with all the other Nseries phones, there are software glitches and the phone isn't recommended unless you really need the smartphone functionality.

The N72 is now no longer in production, but the new Nokia N96 is due to be launched in the second half of 2008.


Nokia N72 features include:

  • Series 60 Symbian SmartPhone
  • 2 megapixel camera with CMOS sensor, 20x digital zoom and flash
  • Video capture: 352 x 288 pixels at up to 15 frames per second (MPEG4 format), 4x digital zoom
  • Photo & video editors
  • Display: TFT, 262,144 colours, 176 x 208 pixels
  • Digital music player (supports MP3, AAC, eAAC & eAAC+ formats) with playlists
  • Stereo FM radio with Visual Radio support
  • Messaging: SMS, MMS, email (SMTP, IMAP4 & POP3) with support for attachments
  • Speaker Independent Voice dialing and commands
  • Push to Talk
  • Java & Symbian applications
  • Advanced contacts database
  • XHTML web browser WAP, EGPRS Class 10 (236.8 kbps)
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0
  • Memory: 20 Mbytes plus 128 MB Reduced Size MMC card
  • Triband
  • Size: 109 x 53 x 22 mm
  • Weight: 124g
  • Talktime: 215 minutes
  • Battery standby: 260 hours
  • Music playback: 10 hours in offline mode

I m using Nokia N72. It is the upgrade virsion of Nokia n70. But without 3G. This phone is very very very good. In quality and look. But some nagative points are sisx files not supported. Law music volume. Heavy weight phone. And poor result of camera flash. But in using internet it is fantastic. And fabulus. With very good speed.

Do not buy this phone. I have had it for 6 months and it has been annoying me with lags and glitches for 5 of those months; in the last month I have simply accepted that it is rubbish. ---Issues with image and gallery: -It can not handle a 2gb memory card; the phone can not estimate memory remaining for photo and video. -When attempting to video, it freezes and does not unfreeze unless the battery is taken out and phone restarted. -The sequence mode causes phone to freeze; again the battery needs to be removed. -Any attempted editing to existent photos results in a discombobulated and distorted photo. -When browsing though the gallery it often lags, freezes, and aborts back to the desktop of the phone. ---Issues with file manager: -Many photos can not be moved around at once as the phone freezes and does not carry out the command. ---Issues with messaging and related memory: -Over 1000 messages can not be deleted at once. During the process it freezes. -When setting the messages to mmc card memory, the phone operates extremely slowly and often does not open messaging at all. -'Phantom' messages that can not be controlled eventually build up that can only be removed through a master reset. ---Connection issues: -The phone is often not recognized when connected via USB. -The option to use a simple navigation (files etc) instead of the Nokia PC Suite was never given to me upon starting up the phone with the computer. -There is no Linux support for this phone so you are screwed if you do not have a card reader and aren't willing to store everything on your card and possibly want to have control over your phone memory through your computer. ---General issues: -Any general command has a great potential to freeze mid-action. -The phone is slow in general and once you get comfortable with its navigation you will become too fast for it. It will get confused and give up. Definitely not worth NZ$370

I gave up lastly... 5. Keypad buttons look cheap. Not worth for the price.

Well..its the first ever time I'm giving a review on a phone. But, having this phone fer almost 2 years now, I guess I owe it to this pretty phone. Its an EXCELLENT phone. Bought it in August 2007 and have it till now. The ONLY problem I ever had is of its skin, the silver on the phone is wearing off. And sometimes, if I have it on fer days continously, it fails to show the missed/recieved calls updates. I gotta switch it off and on..and BANG..its back to normal!! Excellent software..no problems as such..Video/Sound Quality is fine ..Sound quality is better with the headset. When I bought it, it was pretty expensive, now, the price has fallen down, and its an excellent phone in such a low price. A MUST BUY!

Okay, so your statement is not sexist, but hey, I object to it being called stupid cos mine is pink too. Having said that, maybe its just becos I am a woman and know zero, but I have yet to manage to upload more than 5 songs on to my fone. Dont ask me why, I dont know. Besides, it take forever to start up, and starts displaying things I have never asked for. Again, dont ask me why. Apart from that, the video quality is really great, pictures also turn out beautiful and we can get a good enough print out for them. Given a choice, I would opt for another phone, never mind the beauty of it.

It is GooD company has tried their best, but it comes to customer it is upto us how we modify n use. There are certain modification you will need to make in order to be different., you will need to add some extra. For best battery backup do not charge in the cell itself get an external charger. for equalizer music player get it from mobile9.com, and if you use N73 or N72 software it will leave even N95 far behind. coz I have been doing the same and mine is doing perfect. Got any question mail me at cizen4u@hotmail.com. I'll certainly help u. And yes you can have IR facility also in N72. it has open options .
