Nokia N72 Review My personal experience - KEYS - Keys are small and take time getting used to. You mite end up pressing the wrong keys esp while messaging. As music player button n 'c' r placed v.close, u mite end up activating music player while messaging! SPEED - The phone is v.fast. The applications open fast n there is hardly ne lag wit even more than one application open HEADPHONES - Headphones are of excellant quality though cud hav been a little louder. But d bass/treble r produced at amazing quality. CAMERA - 2 MP camera is awesome wit 20x zoom. There are quite a few clicking options. But red eye reduction is really missed here. SLIDER - This one is a big pain and u wil end up sliding it accidently. For rough users be careful or u mite damage it. SPEAKERS - Speakers r of decent quality & loud enough. ACTIVE TOOLBAR - It is a v.useful utility n u can access ur fav. stuf rite frm main screen without having to browse deep in ur cel. DOES THE PHONE HANG? - Against popular belief dat all d N series phones hav hanging prb., this phones have not hung even once PC Suite n N72 – Once u have installed PC Suite with d CD dat comes with N72 cell, browsing ur phone is just v.easy. The USB cable provided makes faster data transfer possible. U wudnt need a Mobtime Manager or odr s/w. to browse ur phone or install applications… VERDICT - 4.5/5 - 0.5 points coz of d keys n slider… SUGGESTION – Plz get ur phone protected with SCRATCHGUARD PRICE apprx Rs.15200 General Source: nseries.com Dimensions • Weight: 124 g • Height: 108.8 mm • Width: 53.3 mm • Thickness (max): 21.8 mm Operating Frequency • EGSM 900/1800/1900 • Automatic switching between bands Memory Functions • Up to 20 MB* internal dynamic memory for contacts, text messages, multimedia messages, ringing tones, images, video clips, calendar notes, to-do list and applications • Expandable memory: 128 MB Reduced Size Dual Voltage (1.8/3V) MultiMediaCard (RS-MMC)** • Hot swap slot for easy MMC card insertion and removal • Approx. memory capacity indication with 128MB RS-MMC memory card • Photos (2 megapixel) up to 300 photos * Changes to product details are possible without prior notice.
