Nokia E72 Diary-The last day and some stress tests

[tweetmeme source=”mrnitishkumar” only_single=”false”]

This was apparently the last day of trial, but unfortunately (?) DHL guy didn’t shown up, no call from their side and I was just waiting with huge mess at office. Anyway, the day ended and I thought to post a few moments with addictive Nokia E72.

After Nokia N900, this was Nokia E72, which really taken me under its spell. A device that spread itself into each moment of your daily life. Though their were points of complaint like not that loud speakers (could say that like just little bit higher than ‘normal’ of NSeries) and poor video recording performance perhaps, but two places, where this device is legendary is its battery performance and strongest of connectivity.


Battery: I must say that this monster didn’t failed a single stress test of mine about the battery. I already posted about my first test about that. My next tests were even more mean.

1. Inspired by one fellow WomWorldian post, I thought to drive the bike and record the moments from bike, but at next moment, I was to get embarrassed as roads between my office to home is not that hilly neither too glamorous to show off. What’s attractive in that to show? But still.. I kept Nokia E72 in my right front pocket (though later only I come to know that using spy cam is not just that easy, should have more experience) and drove back to home in late eve from office.

I was in doubt about the light that if it would be able to capture anything, I was in doubt that after heavy use in whole day, will the battery survive for at least 45 mins from Badarpur Border to Laxmi Nagar? 45 Mins of video recording and still it didn’t heated up, didn’t dried down or didn’t hanged. That’s something incredible. I just wish if the video quality was like my Nokia N82.

So, here comes a view of daily traffic on delhi roads in camera of Nokia E72. Did I mentioned it survived the whole trip and recorded around 46 mins. Obviously couldn’t have uploaded all of it. 😉

2. In continuation of my first stress test, I given it another test. Downloading three 700MB+ files back to back. Can you imagine? More than 2 GB download over a power consuming 3G connection and still it survives till the end. Yes!! barely but it survived. Obviously, I remembered only Nokia N900 that was alive with me even after watching two movie back to back on it.


You must be thinking na that how much download I might have done? Check out my data usages during the trial period (Note that today’s usages are not added as I was to reset the device to factory setting before sending, its another case that DHL guy didn’t shown up).


Just 13 day usages.. I am maniac na?? Just think if I was able to use it during the office hours as well? I was just using it after 8PM usually except the stress test that was taken during 2PM-5:30 PM. For people asking about the connection I am using, its MTNL 3G in New Delhi with data recharge of Rs. 2, 500/- per month. Obviously, I have to make something of this much amount, isn’t it?

Nokia E72 Diary Continued

[tweetmeme source=”mrnitishkumar” only_single=”false”]

Not much to write about Nokia E72 today, but have you remembered my mention in the first post about downloading a big file inside the Nokia E72 itself? Here are screenshots of the same.




Notice the size of file and also the time stamp given below. Could understand that what speed MTNL 3G is giving to me in New Delhi 😉

I tried the same with Nokia N82, but when it tries to start downloading, I get the message “Not Supported”. I have seen it working over Nokia 5800, Nokia N97 and Nokia N900. Perhaps, N82’s browser can’t handle the downloads.

Update: For people looking for better rate for data usages, there are many available plans out in Delhi region. As per my view, there are three, which should suit people in the following ways:

  1. People with occasional usages:  Rs. 450/- for 1 Gb
  2. People with good usages: Rs. 1500/- for 15 Gb Currently not available
  3. People with high usages: Rs. 2500/- for Unlimited usages 

Like Chandan said in its Review over MTNL 3G, even I was not having a positive feeling about PSU Telecom Products. Although I have seen like my colleague B. S. Negi said what goes with Government Product that once set to work, they will work flawlessly, although you have to wait endlessly in case any fault occurs in the same.

I have used BSNL Dialup in Azamgarh, BSNL Broadband in Allahabad, Idea Internet (GPRS, PC) in Azamgarh, New Delhi, Mumbai, Varanasi etc., Aircel (GPRS, PC) in New Delhi and I could say that I got BSNL Broadband and Idea only good enough to rely on till now. Till now, I was on Idea Internet, even after they raised prices (earlier it was 5 Rs. per day for Unlimited Use and now its 20 Rs. per day for Unlimited Use) as its the best option, if you have edge in your area. All other options are more costly, if you are a heavy user.

Anyway, I was writing over MTNL 3G. I bought it from a local shop as the MTNL guy didn’t showed up for 2 days and then it was a total one day wait for getting the SIM activated. The excuse was server problem. Pretty funny!!! for the company giving first 3G for connectivity. 🙂

Initial reception was good and I was able to get around 350 kbps download speed and relatively poor upload speed of about 50-70 kbps on my cell. Although still remained was connecting it to PC. After searching over Internet, I got Chandan’s link and it resolved the issue. The solution was to use Nokia PC Suit and choosing to configure connection manually and putting pps3g as access point and leaving all other fields blank.

For the people, not using Nokia PC Suit, I found another get around.

Go to Control Panel, then Modem, Choose modem and put [at+cgdcont=1,"ip","pps3g"] without brackets, then simply create a dialup in known way and you are set to go.

What I am still feeling trouble here is the UMTS network reception in my room. I get all network line or most of them, but still I guess, I am not getting proper network with MTNL UTS here. If I put it in UMTS only mode, then I could actually see when 3G network is dipping. That’s causing one more issue heating up my cell as Network is constantly interchanging or discovering mode. These trouble are holding me to recharge the cell for unlimited data plan which is costing Rs. 2500/- per month, although other options are available like Rs. 250 for 0.5 GB and Rs. 450/- for 1GB.

Although for the users who want to go for it and searching that whether it will work in their area or not. Here is the 3G Map provided by MTNL Delhi

map_3gAlthough still I get the famous Error 734: The PPP link control protocol was terminated (Thanks to poor network reception in my room) while connecting to internet. This is an error from Server Side, if you are not getting proper network reception. With this error, I guess you can’t do anything about except waiting to get it resolved on your own or restarting your cell again and again 😦

Relieved from the above mention error after changing the area. Now, if I face any trouble then I check the balance. It has been happen sometimes that services might be down, but seems to be stable than early days now.
