I’ve decided to make a quick overview while my trusty Nokia 808 is in service. So I have some time to use Nokia E72 as my main GSM ringer.
What can I say about Nokia? Yeaaah, this is Nokia. I’m talking about original one, not about HMD concern of China, which make cheap android-based phones and awful camera-phones like Nokia PureView 9 .
Speaking of Nokia E72 , it is a premium business smartphone of mid 2000s era. This phone I was dreamt about when I have stunning Ericsson T39m . Sadly I don’t have it anymore, because my gsm provider don’t support 2G anymore and I have to switch to 3G protocol. So, now I finally have an opportunity to try E72 in the fields. Some random pix of this beauty.
It is a quality product made of stainless body. Small qwerty keyboard is definitely not for large hands.
Can be used only as a basic phone with text messaging and audio player.
Camera is very awful in terms of current standards. But this is 2008 phone [remember?], so this is not a strike at all.
Operating system is older version of Symbian 9.3 Series 60 v3.2 UI
The latest final version of this operating system can be found in Nokia PureView 808 and it is Symbian Belle OS Feature Pack 2 .
Last update was in 2013.
Nokia E72 is a nostalgic phone for retrogrades like myself.
Also it is quite interesting device for collectors, due to it’s superb build quality and stylish design.
