i just saw someone mentioning that the n73 needs to use its headset cable as an fm antenna and so it wouldn't be possible to listen to radio on say bose or sennheisers.Im afraid thats wrong as any cable of >5ohm resistance can act as a fm antena.infact the bose/sennheiser cables should give you better reception than the run of the mill nokia headset.
those who criticised about the small key pad of this phone, i think this phone does not suit them, after all this phone is not customized for everybody, so choose whats suitable for you and dont blame aimlessly.
its great phone, no doubt, smart and good looking (more femine)
the more i use my n73, the more i understand.i thinks this is the best phone, 'cause it combines business and entertainment and gives me privacy (which the loudy k800i does not have), some peole talks about the loose lens cover on this phone, i think he got a defected piece. what else can i say? i use my phone as a mini computer with the gprs connection, i can send email and add or download the attachment of email from my phone diretly also. there is more, i got the dictionary with the memory card, a good aid of mine. good camera, 3d sound effect, rocks. i just love the ringtone effect and i can also make it pronounce the caller's names, cool, uh?
regarding my experience at the time of choosing k800i, i find the design so odd (why the camera should be out, making it so uncomfortable in hand), small screen,and the lens very loose (can be easily slide open), YOU DONT FIND THIS IN N73, EVEN ITS OPEN (rarely), it will not open the camera if the key pad is locked.
and there are more, i will tell you later.....
NO, i found the camera cover perfect! Infact i was thinking to myself (before reading the GSM review) how great the cover was compared to my old (N70)
But i have only had it 2 days. Hopefully it stays like this.
for RKnx :
if you wait another 3-6 months as you say another model will appear and you will find n73 as a waste of money,the shouldn` put the phone on market before they`ve test it very well.
how much is the phones ram?..Is it the same as the previous N70? which has 32mb of ram..thnx..and how is the picture quality?.
saving my money for this phone and hopefully when i bought this phone it won't have software bugs...
i think i would choose this over se k800 cue of the style and the camera
I FINALLY got this phone!
It just came out in Australia, and all i can say so far is WOW!
Its AWSOME! Seems great after 2 days of use. No probs at all yet!
Just wondering if anyone knows a website where you can get games, apps etc.. for this phone? Preferably free but i will pay if needed.
Also i have added a 2GB SD card. Phone works fine no probs!
I would be extremely thankful if someone could tell me how I can do the following things on my N73,
i. Insert emoticons/smileys in text messages?
ii. Silence the vibrator when an incoming call starts ringing
iii. Customize the ringtone / alert tone for text messages?
Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
For those who criticize N73 for bugs or whatsoever. do you know what your problem is? you bought it very early. normally, nokia phones stabilizes over 3-6 months onwards. why in a hurry? if you phones right, don't switch to N73 YET! wait for 3-6 months as i have said.
After weeks of waiting, the N73 is finally available in Australia. Ofcourse, its still exclusive to 3 (which means that the phone is locked to the sim) but optus should have one out in the next couple of days. And it comes with a 128MB SD card as well!
A couple of quick queries to actual users:
1. Is the joystick really as bad as it seems from some of the reviews posted?
2. 128MB is without doubt, grossly insufficient to make full use of all applications of this phone. I mean, with that, you cant store more than 25 songs, forget pictures and videos. Does using a 1GB card or higher affect the phone's performance? Does using a 1GB card affect the manufacturers warranty?
I dunno how many of you have read the GSMarena review of this phone in detail, but if you did, you wouldve have noticed several shortcomings in the phone. For starters, you cant play FM on this phone without connecting the earplugs. That is cuz the earplugs cable acts as a receiver. That obviously means that you cannot listen to FM using high quality head phones such as BOSE or SENNHEISER. Whats more, you may not be able to listed to FM using a bluetooth headset either. Pity. Another negative seems to be the camera cover which GSMarena claims to be coming loose after a few days of use. Disappointing to hear such things, which only dampen my spirit to get this phone.
I agreed with you wholeheartedly..
You know why, pizz off with the phone..
Sold my n73, now using K800i, so far so good..
Nite time, n73 took pictures, quality horrible..
Keypad too small.. small children fingers ok..
why nokia? why? why no vga video? why no vga video? why no vga video? so stupid mistake!! or maybe nokia managers said:no vga video for n73.we must sell the useless brick n93 for this function.no?? am i right nokia??
the main problems that occur when you buy this phone :
1.it takes too long when you enter sth.
2.the camera often blocks.
3.the joystick falls very quick and you have the be carefull to watch were it falls because you can`t get it back.
4.the keyboard is too little.
5.somethimes the phone doesn`t read the card and you have to restart the phone.
6.you have to set the equaliser so that the sound from the mp3 is better.
7.i don`t know why they`ve put a 262k display on this phone because the screen it`s too big and the themes look bad as like they`ve streched,they`ve could put a 16m display.
8.the phone doesn`t come with a memory card..a bad idea..they`ve tried to make it cheaper and they`ve made it worser.
9.the phone has problems with some apps..it closes by itself when he want`s.
10.somethimes the phone doesn`t connect to the network and it appers connection error and you have to restart it.
Well,a nice phone,very slick,too cheap,bad keyboard,no memory card,good sound,bad sistem,good camera,good batery,bad display.
This is my point of view about this phone and i kinda regret it that i bought it because you`ll start to love it and when you care more for him it let's you down....
the bad part is that the joystick falls in 2-3 day since you bought it that's the main problem..and i have the 2 gb card and it works fine on it..i don`t know why they made the keyboard so bad because it was the perfect mobile phone :(
