E72: After 5 days

It is a poorly built phone!!

If I type fast, some character will be missed. I need to go back & enter the character. It was not there with E71. Some users reported the problem only limited with the keys on the numpad.

As mentioned in my previous post, E71 has a solid built. Not E72. The battery cover is loose. The keyboard especially the bottom part near the mic is also loose.

I taped my phone with gaffer tape to stop the ‘moving’ cover.

Bugs are everywhere. Especially in multimedia department. The gallery is slow, super slow & RealPlayer crashed many times & even reset my phone.

I wanna repair the loose part & tried to send it to Zitron (the distributor in Malaysia) & to my amazement, I can only send it during office hours where else those AP sets can be repaired even during weekends. So guys, instead of buying Zitron sets, just buy CSL or any AP sets. The warranty is longer & the repair is easy. The best part is, it is cheaper!

Many feel that the phone is disappointing. Me too. The E71 is a great phone. I bought the same phone again after I lost one in Medina in Dec 2008. So finally, after all these frustrations, should I keep my E72? Unfortunately the answer is YES. Because I still hope especially the ‘miss-character syndrome when typing’ will be gone with the new firmware. So Nokia please release the best firmware for this potentially great smartphone.

    sorry to hear that man, my e72 also has a loose cover, and this is the 2nd e72 I have bought in 1 week. First one was shipped to me and when I took it out of the box I realized the top left and right keys, and also the optical pad were moving like crazy. the screen plastic was also popping up like crazy. Shipped it back and bought a brand new one from another website, this time, I got the brown one. This one doesn’t seem to have any problems besides the battery cover moving quite a bit.
    Kind of miss my e71 (had 3 of those), but I guess I’ll stick with the e72 until next year when I’ll sell it on ebay and get something else. Take care
