I came across a post â€œWhy the Nokia E72 Is A Worthy Upgrade From The E71â€ on Symbian Guru which highlights other changes which I missed on the comparison chart. They are
- Better video recording
- 3.5mm headset plug
- MicroUSB charging
- Battery life improvements
- Optical scroll
- Built-in compass
- Dedicated torch key
- Brushed metal backcover (no fingerprints)
- Active noise cancellation.
- Feature Pack 2
- Better default icons
- Pre-installed Nokia Maps 3.0, N-Gage, Nokia Messaging
- Improved multimedia support
To read the full details please read the post.
After reading the post Iâ€™m weighing my options and deciding whether to stick with the E71 or go in for E72. I guess little knowledge is dangerous.
