Just got this phone today to gift it to a friend & while selecting the phone initially I wanted to get her the nokia 6300, but was not satisfied with the sound quality of the music playback, Nokia 5700 also did not do well, then looked into N Series N70 was less priced but sound was bad, N72(too priced very reasonable) sound quality was also not so good, finaly N73 ME was amazing(which proves that you have to pay a slightly high premium for good quality, which probably I guess is fair enough), so got that for my friend as she is so crazy about music, I am sure she'd be impressed by it. But only disadvantage, is that N73 ME does not have wifi, although she cares a damn abt wifi as shez not so tech savy & considers internet only to be accessed from a desktop computer not even a laptop, lol, so that saved me from gifting her a laptop.
So people who do not need wifi on their phone, and are looking to listening to music on their phone, the best option in Nokia would be N73 Music Edition, probably that way even N95 has an amzing music playback option, but itz too pricey so that depends on ur budget & what exactly you need.
I only fail to understand tht in gsmarena, I was looking at people's opinions a few days ago, & people kept saying that N72 has good speaker, but trust me & mark my words for it, the music playback is not good in N72 as compared to N73 music edition. So conclusson, itz good to have a look at people's opinion out here, but pls pls pls always dont trust what they have got to say, try testing the phone at the store by getting your hands on the demo piece back there & if that really satisfies you, then close your eyes & go for it. (Hey but dont really close ur eyes, otherwise how would you pay for the phone). Anyways, with regards to people's opinion, I guess different people have different tastes. Like some people would say that their Nokia 3230 is amazing & is the best phone in the world, they wud say & claim this jus because probably they have not yet even had a chance to get their hands on any of Nokia's N Series phones. What Say People.
Phones that I had tested in the Nokia store, mainly for music playback
Nokia 6300/ Nokia 6233/ Nokia 6270/ N70Music Edition/ N72/ N73 Music Edition.
The winner(if this helps any of u) N73 ME.
FYI: I was mainly looking at music playback & that is why I teseted the camera only on N73 & the pic quality was good enough considering it had 3.2 MP cam & flash.
Finaly, before i conclude, special thanks to the sales person at the store(even though I am sure that she would not be reading this opinion but still felt like thanking her once again)as she was very patient enogh to explain me all the available options & guide me to select the phone that I require bassed on my requirements.
Good luck to you Nokia. Keep making good phones.
Hey by the way Nokia, incase your listening, we are still waiting for the Nokia N95 8 GB & N81 8GB, to be made available in the stores. Please do the needful & make sure itz available before christmas(before christmas this year, not next year).
The last Music Edition Firmware is
V4.07184.108.40.206 from 04-09-2007. There is a new folder with maps like on N95. Try to update to the new one. Good luck!

Whoever is thinking of buying an n73 or an n73 music edition, i can tell you from someone whos owned both, go for the music edition.
Can you tell us why, is there really any differences. Please enlighten us.
I have N73 musical edition, my near vision is a bit weak; it is 1.25. I find it difficult to read the information on the screen for example a name or telephone number because the font is very small. Is it possible to increase the font generally. Thanks
