I came across a post “Why the Nokia E72 Is A Worthy Upgrade From The E71” 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 I’m weighing my options and deciding whether to stick with the E71 or go in for E72. I guess little knowledge is dangerous.
