Although Nokia E71 is not the first QWERTY phone ever created, it can be said that record sales and popularity of these phones could be among the top other QWERTY phones. Maybe this success unthinkable even by the vendor, because when Nokia launched E61 and E61, the company's sales are not like this. What makes Nokia E71 succeed ?
There are many factors supporting the success of the E71. The spread of QWERTY model design is one of them. But in this case I prefer to conclude that internal factors play the largest role. Nokia E71 design is pretty cool. On this phone, the Nokia design team has succeeded in creating a smart phone with full keyboard that usually appear plump and stiff to be slim, stylish and very filled with fashion elements.
If the E71 is such a success, what else will be made by Nokia for the E72 which is the successor to the phone? As a successor to a successful mobile phone, the E72 can indeed be a lot of attention. Many doubted whether the future of E72 will be as popular as E71 . Because we judge the future of Nokia E72, Let's see the phone review first.
Actually, the basic concept of the E72 design still like E71. In this case Nokia as a principle not to alter the form that has been favored by many people. But it does not mean that they have exact same design. It's just the same concept, but the design is different.
Nokia E72 has dimension of 114 x 59,5 x 10,1 and 128gr weight. It's a little differences with Nokia E71 that has 114 x 57 x 10 mm of dimension and 127gr weight. So, E72 bigger than E71, but only one grams, so it wouldn't affect for E71 users.
In the selection of material, it seems like Nokia to reduce the use of metal on E72. Strong impression of metal only felt in the battery cover that is still using stainless steel with textured finish grafir well. Wrap the metal is also felt in chrome trim that surrounds the body and cross-section so occupy the navigation key, softkey and ok/yes botton of the phone.
Front section is still filled with air fittings standard QWERTY phone. Keyboard encourages a comfortable soft rubber. The composition of the keyboard is closed with E63 than E71, complete with access to a flashlight which occupies the main space. Innovation Nokia on the E72 is on the five-way navigation key which also has an optical trackpad for navigation by sweeping a finger tip.
E72 is also equipped with 3.5 mm audio jack, unlike his predecessor which use 2.5 mm. Selection of a more universal jack size will make users more comfortable and easier in choosing their own headsets if default headset is not satisfied. Another improvement is that the speaker with a bigger hole. Earpiece no longer on the top, but behind the trim side of the camera's lens.
In general, the features on the E72 is almost identical to the E71. Both the productivity features, entertainment and connectivity, all nearly equal. There must be some improvements let me add okay. Not fun if only it writes an enhanced design. From the operating system, still the same, namely Symbian S60 third edition, now appear with the latest version is more comfortable to wear.
If you want to see the difference, which can be directly visible is the camera which is now increased to 5 MP. In the software, the E72 has a more solid solution map because it use Nokia Maps 3.0 which makes GPS more and more comfortable. Also added with a digital compass.
On the application side there are also improvements in the Office application that is now better. then, there is also a new application in Nokia E72, that is Nokia Instant Messaging. This application is really cool to chat.
Behind all the features and applications, there are very significant changes that make the E72 can work faster, which is a new processor that upgraded to 600 MHz. This change makes the E72 look better than the E71 in terms of data processing speed and battery life.
From the experience of using, I feel that the E72 is more comfortable than the E71. This experience not only of design changes, but also from the feature spec. From design, comfortable typing with the QWERTY keyboard on the E72 is more severe. But i think you must be curious with optical trackpad performance.
This optical trackpad may be a new feature that can make mobile phone users to change from E71 to E72. If according to my experience, optical trackpad is so attractive alternative navigation when we maneuver in the menu. Although we are still able to push the navigation buttons, but the experience pretty fun with a gentle rub. In addition, the sensor is also very responsive.
But in the more frequent use such as browsing, I think I prefer to use the usual five-way button. With the trackpad is much smaller than a laptop touchpad, do not expect to use while browsing can be as comfortable on the laptop. At least we do not need to scrub more often to direct the cursor on web pages. For this purpose, it is most comfortable wearing regular navigation button. But this is my personal experience, perhaps you have different opinions about this.
If the feature spec, the processor could be perhaps the most important thing. With a 600 MHz processor, really if the displacement is a fixed menu, loading applications and the like can be done more quickly. I try bandingin with E71 when browsing via WiFi using the same hotspot. This is really the material is fixed, so the difference is really the speed of browsing. The role of this new processor not only on the speed of the process, but also affects the battery life which is more efficient than the E72, E71.
