What a joke has been made out of fools and kids who such desparate on megapixels, autofocuses and other crap in cellular phones. $400-$1000 for a cellular phone that
supously has megapixel camera?
Why do you think all of a sudden all these new so-called camera phones come out and each of them has 1.0 mp, or 1.3 mp, or 2mp censors but on the other hand almost all of them miss the most important feautures of even lowest 2mp regular digital camera. Some of these phone don't even have 256 k color screen! Other phones don't have an optical zoom. All of the phones don't have a decent battery life for a camera.
The answer is simple but only if you have half of mature brain! To produce 1.0,, 1.3, and 2.0 megapixel censors has became so easy and cheap (yes the megapixel censors of low quality are cheap! unless you are fool enough to think that any cell. phone brand will put a high quality megapixel censor into the camera than has no Optical Zoom, standard camera featers, and a decent battery of at least 1600 mah) that those companies like Sony Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung are filling the phones with those megapixel censors just to keep the price of the phones high rocking! They get all those extra thousands and millions of $$$$$ just because the consumer market is totally fooled!
So, why don't you stop throughing your money out, and instead buy yourself the best cellular phone such as Nokia 6310i or Nokia 5140. Then buy the best digital camera such as: Canon g6, or Kodak 530 ( coming up in few weeks, amaingly new style thin camera with schneider optics! and 5 megapixel, plus
30 fr/per/sec video mode ) and be a happy person!
The New camera review definately looks better than the previous one..on peice of advice for all those viewing the pictures on a 17 inch monitor on the PC at home..MOST 17'' MONITORS have a MAX resolution of 1280x1024 so the pics of the N90 which have a resol of 1600x1200 will look a bit blurred..so try lookin at them after resizing or at best fit option...I fell the video takin ability of the N90 is great..
But i would never buy the N90 because its a clamshell & is huge without Vibra..But this review is something to cheer about because,I am sure Nokia is goin to comeup with something similar in a Candybar form soon..
hmm, but u could put D600 here...
well, here's my belief : N90 - the best symbian-camera phone (with no competitor in the near and far future)
K750i - the best camera phone
GSMARENA is goin to rate n90 vs k750i soon. Someone asked why not D500. I think because D500 is not 2 megapixel camera and neither does it have autofocus. Believe it or not autofocus is the best thing in 2 megapixel camera. D500 is only 1.3 megapixel. Everyone knows the result if u compare that to k750i or n90.
I agree about the color. But my main dissapotment was about how sharpness of the photos. The outdoor photos of parks and buildings and of cars look not sharp at all
( I don't know maybe all 2megapixel digital cameras are like that. I never used a 2 mp digital camera before, so I can't say).
On the other hand, N90 took excellent photos indoors. Just look at the very first 2 photos taken by N90 indoors ( when you are in specification section of N90, click on the photo of n90 and you will see among many photos of the phone 2 photos: one of a guy standing by stereo system and another one is right next to it).
SO HERE IS ANOTHER QUESTION:
Do all 2mp cameras take very sharp and detailed photos indoors of a close objects? And horrible in terms of sharpness outdoor photos?
Totally agree with you here Linda. I have tried taking photos with both the 902 (actually I own one) and N90 (in a roadshow). On the tiny phone screens the quality of the photos taken by the two devices may be comparable, but once on a computer screen, 902 beats N90 in terms of exposure and color balance. Of course 902 has its share of flaws - it has a sensor that is very sensitive to even the tiniest movement (i.e. pictures get blurry easily), and its autofocus is too slow compared to the k750i. I think the order (just in terms of photo shooting abilities) of 2MP camera phones should be k750i->902->N90
I just looked at the photos taken by N90 in the most recent review by GSMarena and I don't understand what is it over there that exceeds expectation?
To me the photos taken outside by N90 are horrible. They are not even slightly better than the photos than the phtotos that were taken by the best Canon FILM CAMERA
(not digital camera).
CANON G6 on the other side provides top class photos comparing to Nokia N90. I don't understan why N90 was compared to G6 (7 MEGAPIX!) instead of comparing to sony 750?
Also why haven't we seen photos from SHARP 902 or Sharp TM 200 YET? Why all the time we see only photos from Sony Ericsson and Nokia phones? We didn't even see Samsung d500 photos.
ANYONE (including GSM arena staff) can answer my questions?
PLEACE SINCERE AND MATURE ANSWERS ONLY
(not the type of kids reviews like:
Samsung and Sharp suck , or Nokia and Sony rule).
ok guys.. after looking at the camera review here, who do you choose for having the best CAMERA , is it sharp 902 or Nokia N90?
For me is sharp that has won interms of the camera and picture quality
The original thread is located here>>>
Eldar from mobile-review mentioned that the Nokia N90 will have a wholesale price of 500 Euros.
Hey but the n-series will be compatible with software for series 60??
If not so, I don't see anything good in this new products, if i want 4GB for MP3 or a good camera, I purchase a good camera and an ipod mini..
You probably forget that Nokia was the first company to make a successful slider (the 7650), so they did not copy that formfactor...
To me, i would have considered the N90 if it had vib alert. I never even thought about that feature because I took it for granted in any phone, but when i first heard that the N90 hastn't got it, i kind of dismissed it as one of choices for my next phone.
Otherwise I too think that it is quite useless to compare anything EXCEPT the camera between N90 & K750i...
I'm waiting for the N70, hopefully it's on time (middle of september?)
try k750 for a change. i was hooked on Nokia and was used to their style, but SE phones are getting friendlier. k750 is simply amazing.
apparently so. i asked a few retailers and they say its coming out probably this weekend. but who noes. not anticipating anymore. even if it does ill most prob go for the n70.
i got this reply when i ask sinagpore nokia customer service about the n90 if it had vibration and that was what they replied..

Size & Functions:
I believe that size is irrelevant to me, but not to others. That's why I am a Sharp fan. Their handsets are middle-sized and practical.
I really believe though that Size & Functions are on a correlation. The more functions and FEATURES you want packed into it, the bigger it will be...for now.
A 320 x 240 Screen is rarely below the 2" mark. That's why the SE K750i is only 220 x 176 pixels, though both fones (N90 & K750i) share the same kind of screen (256k color & same pixel relations).
Bigger size is handy for people who need comfort. Fiddly phones are a pain, especially for guys with bigger fingers.
Judging the N90 merely by size is naive. Why? Because it IS a 3G phone with the biggest resolution screen on a mobile as yet. Could it have come smaller? HELL YES, but it wasn't meant to. The camera module COULD have been placed like on the N70.
The camera position & size make it comfortable to hold and flexible for Video-Conversations. The screen is big enough to watch NewsCasts or Movies.
Consider modern PDA's, noone says anything against their parameters BECAUSE THEY ARE PERCEIVED to be powerful multimedia devices.
The N90 is on the same class with a PDA, yet people categorize it "merely" as a mobile phone, forgetting about the actual functionality. Buy a 3200 if SIZE matters, but I bet you that you will never fit anything near the N90 into a 3200.
We are not comparing these phones directly. What Moe and I have been saying though is that the 2MP module, Memory card and essential functions HAVE been implemented successfully already. We were not saying that the K750i has a better screen in terms of size, impossible. The K750i cannot offer 3G services, but CAN OFFER excellent picture quality.
THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL ARGUEMENT. The N90 dissapointed in prize and actual picture Quality, not in OVERALL quality and services. The N90 won't be successful due to its imbalanced relationsship of price and value. You can get the same quality camera for half the price on the K750i. This will be beneficial to those who DO NOT LIVE in a UMTS/3G enabled environment.
Think about it.
