9700 vs E72


This is an amateur attempt of phone review. Please be nice to me XD. 

Upon the time of writing,i havent buy any of these phone YET.

Now i'm a proud owner of Nokia E72 yeah!

My SE phone has developed this keypad problem since few months ago (which initially still bearable lah coz only keypad no 4, 5 and 7 yg ada problem). What happen is that, i need to press more times to type the huruf that i want eg. i want to type huruf I, so i should press no. 4 three times only kan but with this problem i need to press like 4-5 times to get it right.

So if i were to type ' keypad ini buruk. Sila buang sy.', with just one attempt to press it ended up like this

"jeypad ini rd buquj. Sija auang ry."

Apa laitu. cis.

Imagine i want to scold anyone using SMS, sempat lagi sy ketawa tgk tu ayat berantakan haha.

Hence i'm scouting for a new QWERTY keypad-like phone, why i chose qwerty over normal keypad phone has nothing to do with my current phone problem,i just want a variation (eh tiba2 serius)

So when it's qwerty, BB bold comes first in mind. Terlalu cantik bah utk di ignore.

 BlackBerry Bold 9700

 Nokia e72

But a BB without BIS plan is useless and being a digi user myself, if i wanna buy BB + BIS plan + 12 months contract, it'll cost me RM 1649. For 24 months, RM 1299. I dont want to opt to buy the BB and the plan separately coz it'll definitely cost more. Nokia e72 cost RM 1230. Like they say, jadilah pembeli yg bijak.

No BIS for e72 (duh..), but can rely on the GPRS/Edge or wifi for the internet access in which sufficient enough for me since i only surf using my current phone occasionally (FB and emails). I still prefer to surf internet using a lappy and broadband, very much a traditional person hence i dont see the point of signing up for the digi BIS plan for rm68/month while i have my broadband and free internet access in Uni during daytime. Apart from that,i can retain my current digi call plan which is way cheaper than using prepaid.

And the thing about Nokia that i like is that, there are lots of freeware (3rd party apps) and 'crackware' available in the internet :D

And considering the fact that i might migrate to Sarawak in future, yes i need a phone that has GPS navigation, manatau la tersesat then nda pandai cari jalan pulang. Both BB and e72 have GPS but for BB the maps support only for US and Europe and although the map is download-able, it wont work exactly as in Symbian (which is the OS for Nokia mobile phone ;)). Nokia e72 can run the ovi maps (free ovi software and maps download here but i doubt the availability for M'sia punya map) or might as well follow like most nokia users' do: install 3rd party gps software which is Garmin Mobile XT :D

By this point i guess you can predict which one i'm about to buy :D not saying that it is better than the other one but i wanna buy a phone that is fully vandalised utilized rather than using it as a tool to show off :p

Ok. Till then.

Sarawak certainly a nice place to stay. I stayed there for quite sometime but I still prefer KK. It's like holiday everyday..
Sometimes when I feel the tense of work, I will usually go for a walk at the beach..or simply find rest at some affordable Inn along Kinarut.
Anyway, all the best to u and your future undertkgs...
Stay young!

mell..alang la time sja tu mau kasi spend tu duit...better buy the best u can get....don't care abt d prize la k....think abt what it can offer u..

Mell_f said...

Honey: Swak is a good place indeed :) You too stay young! :D

Memel: mesti la kan mo feel content with what we buy :) u and my dad have 1 thing in common,but my dad mgkin lebih extreme la. btukar telefon every 2-3 months, pengaruh rakan sebaya punya psl haha.

Wel: Of course i hv to care about the price,it's nobody's $$ but me haha. Mesti jg i weigh in the pros and cons ba before buying. nda jg sy hantam ja beli,that is so 1900 oh keke.

Hp ada trend ba jg mcm fesyen,what seems the best now might not be the best in let say 1 year time,2 yrs? in fact,ada lagi tu upgraded version will come out nti. so better stick to the hp functionality rather than the 'popularity'. so btwn BB and e72,i know which will serves me better :)

Wel^Beiolman said...

mell..good...since when u follow trend..haha..hell with u can afford and of course functionality plg penting..hehe...

Mell_f said...

wel: doii which part yg i state i follow the trend,punya bias fikiran kau ni haha.

HAHAHAH omg somehow terimagine how farnie that whole typing sms dilemma. I want a new phone too. Coz my phone near to outdated. But I'm gonna skip all that and kumpul duit beli laptop dulu. My computer is dying. I can't type a decent blog post without crashing the browser.

Mell_f said...

massy: itu lah ba malas bettttuuulll sy mau reply sms org skg. perlu kesabaran yg amat tinggi oh haha.

I thought I'm the only one yg experiencing prob with the SE, mine also got prob at 4, 7, 9. Pandai restart lg tu..

My vote is E72.

Mell_f said...

Adora: my phone pun pandai restart like tiba2 ni,but jarang la. the main problem cuma tu keypad seja.
