Well, I just got mine & I LOVE it! Best phone EVER. And it is NOT a brick, it's actually very small, about the size of a SLVR, just a little thicker. The screen is HUGE & beautiful, the camera is as good as a regular digital camera & the reception is perfect! All you haters out there - TRY IT BEFORE TALKING BAD ABOUT IT!
it has a standard nokia keylock.
press the top left function key followed by * to lock the keypad. press again to unlock...
Got mine on Tuesday havenít stopped playing with it (the phone) since!
Itís fantastic, 2 of my mates have the N80 and both think they have been too hasty not waiting for the N73, Iím glad they were itís always nice to be the first person to have the best phone!!
Picture quality is better than my 3.2mp Sony Cybershot camera, maybe itís just getting old eh?
Speakers are really loud I had it on full volume at first by mistake Ė wonít be doing that again!!
Just waiting for the 2Gb SD card to arrive so I can put TomTom on it.
1: It can be slow at times but only when you open the camera or try to open videos and large pictures.
2: Screensaver is non-existent so I am going to have to download a 3rd party software called PowerLock.
3: No keylock Ė well not one that I can findÖ.
4: When viewing Sms or Mms there doesnít seem to be a setting so you can view the time and date it was sent/delivered to you unless you go to ĎDetailsí in the menu.
Other than the above Iím very impressed with it and consider it to be a Very good purchase.
got it two days ago, and I don't regret buiyng it. it's my first symbian phone, but I dont think it's slow at all concidering all the functions you get in one small unit, and being able to download additional functions/programs to suit your needs. the camera takes nice clear pictures, sound is crisp and clear and the battery-life is good. charged the battery yesterday, and after taking some pictures, talking on the phone, surfing and playing some music, the battery indicator have only lost one line (out of seven) in 24hrs... not bad. the keypad is a little bit smaller than my last phone, but after a couple of days I'm already used to it. writing sms on it is no problem. in my opinion it's the best allround phone on the market right now...
It would be far more interesting if someone who really has the phone could give us his opinion
i love this phone so much.. simple beautifully and functionally... does anyone know how the keypad is? is it good for do sms?
I'm also eying for this beautiful phone.
first of all what attracts me is the phone has a boasting big screen w/c i love in a cellphone for viewing and playing games. And i think the camera is superb, i've seen lots of sample photos taken by this phone on the net, the Speaker is also xcellent coz it has 2 speakers with 3D stereo sound effects and last but not the least, the battery is pretty good. :-)
I agree what you said, sometimes, all those negative comments are because of too far much expectations from users. Indeed, the phone's features are rich enough than we need it for.
I hv been using NOKIA phone for 5 yrs, i would say N73 is one of the great products among other nokia phones. i got this phone more than a week ago. I love it in all.
I've been an avid Nokia fan since the time mobile phones were born. Starting from the brick-like 6110 to the slimmer 6310, then the smaller 6510 and finally the 8310. Would you believe that Ive been using the 8310 for the past 4 years now!
Needless to say, I simply love the phone, its small, light weight and it plays FM with superb audio quality. However, its not my love for the phone thats kept me from switching to a new one, its simply my inability to shortlist a good enough phone.
Not that I havent looked around or researched. I have spent many hours in stores around sydney and melbourne and on the net hoping to zero in on the right phone. And my frustration with not being able to come up with a viable Nokia alternative has many a times forced me to look at alternative brands....I have yet to make the switch.
Finally, after several years, I seem to like another phone. And thats the Nokia N73. Simple-looking, yet functionally rich, the N73 (on paper) seems to be the best choice. I am not one who expects the world and a half from his phone. I expect it to give me basic functionality, that of making calls and texting, with the throw-ins of listening to music and being able to click an odd picture every now and then. And all this without exhausting my battery within a day's time. And I do believe that the N73 will give me what Im seeking.
Ofcourse, I've been reading all soughts of reviews on the phone, some positive and others negative. However, I think the more negative reviews are from consumers who expect too much from their phone. Not that they are wrong, given the fact that the phone companies themselves claim their phones to be able to do all that and more. Yet, for me, with my conservative expectations, I think the N73 will be perfect.
The phone isnt available in Australia yet, but should be in the next couple of weeks. That's a good thing actually because it will allow me to read more about actual user experienes from all over the place. I hope this time, I'm not forced to defer my purchase ......... yet again.
this is the phone that is behind the idea of all-in-one. n93 is huge. n80 is weird. n90 is ok for the first month you have it. n70 is good.
I had n70, now I have n90. my next phone will be n73 (with better software).
or just buy a 3310 and a goo camera :P
After I've seen the compared pics of K800 and N73 from the link: http://www.mobile4arab.com/vb/...php?t=473724 , I can speak louder: the photographic qualities of these gadgets are near IDENTICAL. But fot the smart-phone features, much bigger and better screen and better video recording, I will buy the N93 though.
First word Great phone, N80 is the nearest rival noother cell comes near and yes SE790i is better is picture quality cause its CYBERSHOT, anyways got first glimpse of it at Sky Phone Company 0300-8633053, but only available in Advace warranty at 52000 Rs I will wait but will first taste K790i as soon as M2 is more avaiable
hey guys if u want n73 in india as it is not yet available in india u can buy it on ebay i bought mine frm ebay india for Rs.25,500 only.
quite cheap huh.
well if u want there r few more to grab its with bill and warrenty go fast.
mine is working flawless and i luv it its awsome and worth the money(i bought it quite cheap)
i luv it
I think there's no need to wait. If U like it, just buy it! Perfect phone is impossible 'cause Nokia won't sell other phones. Nseries will be very close to your dream but have never achieved this.
P.S. I think N73 is the best phone for me and I'll buy it soon!
~ELT~ said it best.... there's never a perfect time to buy a nokia. expect an n74/n81/n94 by the end of this year with all the n93 features in a compact slider form, but its gonna lack vibration/lens cover/flash or whatever so you have to wait again!
N73 is just so great!! It really is!! Everything is ok! Nice screen, vivid and bright! The camera is also fantastic- images are clear and nice to look at!
I think these pics are nice...
Could some user please link some pictures taken with the camera via Imageschack or some other imageblogging service?
Such a true post, ELT. I could not agree with you more. I started with the idea to buy the N93. I said, whoa, it is the bomb diggity. Now, seeing the crappy pics, i will not pay 800 euros for 30 fps recording which is by far inferior from a real cam at a cheaper price. I am considering N73. Is it worth giving up wi-fi for a bit of improvement in pic quality? WTF, i'll buy the silver E70 and that is it.
